Thank you for “Kansas City Kerry,” Mr. Paul Beston. The best part was the fact that both sides have agreed to keep silent. ‘Course most minds won’t be changed anyway. They would rather die than admit they were wrong. And turning their backs on their favorite news anchor would be a sin. Vietnam has never been settled, and never will. Brainwashing is very effective, unless you daily look for it, and deny it any roots. Americans have sat on their behinds and soaked in CBS, NBC, ABC, and the Jane Fonda Hollywood swill for years. Swim in a septic tank long enough, and you can’t get the stink off.
But Vietnam is still being fought on the Internet. Thankyoualgore. Some of us refuse to be silent. We refuse to say Vietnam was a mistake. We refuse to agree to disagree.p>So there you have it. Republicans, Democrats and Nam Vets. As for me personally: I go with Bush. Period. br> — Martin N. Tirrell br> Lisbon, New Hampshire /p>
If Republicans were the same as Democrats, we would just let this story die down, then on Friday afternoon before the election, media sources would be awash with an alarming allegation made by another Vietnam Veterans Against the War meeting attendee that “Kerry attended the meeting, and they proposed the assassination of a senator that may have been a powerful Democrat!”.
The problem, of course, is that the story wouldn’t be reported until the media fully investigated the impact on Kerry’s electability, or if reported, denounced as a scheme to harm a candidate in the last moments before an election with an “unproven allegation” with no time for the candidate to effectively respond.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
