Wir fahren auf Deutschland!
Not sure how the blogging is going to be for the next week, so if you see no new words, well, remember Papillion...: "I'm still here, yoou greasy bastards!!"
Speaking of that line, here's to Chuck Hagel for forgetting his republican zombie oath and acting like a real thinking American:
"The Iraq war should not be debated in the United States on a partisan political platform," the Nebraska senator remarked. "This debases our country, trivializes the seriousness of war and cheapens the service and sacrifices of our men and women in uniform. War is not a Republican
or Democrat issue. The casualties of war are from both parties. The Bush administration must understand that each American has a right to question our policies in Iraq and should not be demonized for disagreeing with them. Suggesting that to challenge or criticize policy is undermining and hurting our troops is not democracy nor what this country has stood for, for over 200 years. The Democrats have an obligation to challenge in a serious and responsible manner, offering solutions and alternatives to the Administration’s policies."
To question your government is not unpatriotic – to not question your government is unpatriotic. America owes its men and women in uniform a policy worthy of their sacrifices."
Amen and amen, and that statement alone has given me new inspiration. Of course he will be attacked by the usual crowd of sycophants, but in this case they will be wrong and the good Senator from Nebraska right. Thank goodness he had the courage to say what many think........
Just shows you can be a Republican and think too......
Contrary to what many have heard. : They are different........
