A place to rant about politics, the media, and especially the electorate. Much like alcohol, the electorate is both the cause of, and the solution to, all of America's problems.

What you mean "we", white man?

If correct as stated, this is one of worst things that could possibly happen to America.

At 5:12 a.m. Wednesday, Patricia McCook, also of Jackson, Miss., was awakened by a "very frantic" phone call from her husband, Sgt. Larry McCook. "He was saying, 'Wake up! Please listen to me! I sneaked out of the back [mess] hall to tell you something. Something's going on. The military wants to sweep it under the rug, but it needs to be out. Get a paper and pen and write this down."
Beverly Dobbs of Vandiver, Ala., also received an anguished phone call Wednesday from her son, Spc. Joseph Dobbs. "Momma, we're in a lot of trouble," he said, according to Dobbs. "We had some contaminated fuel. We went out on this mission, and they turned us back, and our captain got mad and was gonna send us out on another mission. We refused to go because our vehicles were in awful shape. The place they wanted to send us was dangerous. We had to go without guns. All of us refused to go. We're not risking our lives like that."

Orders of magnitude less importantly, this is one of the worst things that could possibly have happened to republican neocon bigots. They've run the tables for years with the catch phrase "support the troops". They've used it by trading on an ambiguity - the phrase specifically mentions the troops, but republicans use it in the sense of "support the civilian administration". Troops refusing to carry out orders, for acceptable reasons, strongly separates those two threads, and holds them as far apart from one another as they could possibly be.

So what is it now, you republican neocon bigots? C'mon - support the troops - I dare you. Support the troops you stupid, evil, mean bigoted motherfuckers. Support the troops - by getting rid of bush and his band of mean, incompetent cronies that the troops refuse to follow.

Your posts used to have some thought inherent in them. Now you've resorted to calling people mean. Call me when you stop kicking and screaming, it's embarassing.
