I got up and drove to Crawford on Saturday morning. I saw thousands in that little town there to support the President, our war effort, and our troops. The press, however, was out in a pasture outside of town with a maybe one hundred or so fools. I had to drive out there to see what the folks were talking about in town. It was a scene right out of the 1960s. There were middle-aged hippie fools looking for free love and drugs, and to curry favor with Ms. Cindy. She pranced and preened under her tent like a peacock spreading its feathers. What total nonsense.
The stories I heard in Crawford from plain and simple folks, like me, were so touching. Several came who had lost children in the war. All said, to a person, my son or my daughter was an adult. They knew what they had chosen to do. I am proud of them. Meanwhile, outside Crawford, Cindy spouted the ridiculous and was covered by many press vans.
I heard several Vietnam vets say they came home to be reviled but our soldiers won’t because we will stand up for what is right. However, if the liberal press directs the news, as it did to cause our failure in Vietnam, I am not convinced that we can overcome. Still, I watched my honorable husband come home from Vietnam to this nonsense and I sat quietly. Others in my family will not come home to this without me speaking out this time.p>Back at my ranch now, br> — Beverly Gunn br> Texas /p>
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?
