Bitmo, what did you think of John Kerry's remarks the other day:

“You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

I consider myself bipartisan...I believe there are great human beings in both the Democratic and Republican parties. Same here in Canada: there are great people in both the Liberal and Conservative parties.

However, Kerry's comment was cheap.

It belittles, demeans and disrespects every man and woman in the military who's risking their life right this very moment in order to perform their duties, wherever they may be serving.

I see where freecyprus is still going on about that...

Guess googling is too hard for the Republican Supporters.

Or maybe he's one of the Pentagon's new Propaganda On The Internet spooks?

The original comment was supposed to be a joke insinuating that bush is dumb and that's why he's stuck in Iraq. The last line of the joke "if you dont, you get stuck in Iraq" refers to bush being dumb. Kerry screwed up the punchline. You see his head look down at his notes before he says the punchline so he read it wrong. The repubs will harp on this til election day to distract you. Dont be dissuaded from the real issues. Kerry should have explained the screw up and gone on which makes him just as dumb as bush...but he wasnt taking a cheap shot.

"i don't always comment at your place because those folks who comment don't always want to hear a difference in opinion and i don't feel like i should have to offer myself up as a sacrificial lamb to the slaughter for their amusement."

Bitmo, some (not all) of your users are exactly the same way. See Sewmouse's comment:

"Guess googling is too hard for the Republican Supporters. Or maybe he's one of the Pentagon's new Propaganda On The Internet spooks? "

That user doesn't want to hear what I have to say and is also afraid of "a difference in opinion." For him/her, I too am a "sacrificial lamb to the slaughter" for "amusement" and in that sense, no different than the extremists that both you and I are fighting.

I'm glad Bill Clinton's words still hold true:

"The central question for our time is not how you worship God or even whether you worship God. It's whether you believe in this life you can be in possesion of the absolute truth and you have the right to impose it on others..."

Folks, that applies to BOTH the Right and the Left.
