    damn war - it was knee-jerk reaction to 9/11 - everyone was so afraid to not seem "patriotic" and Cheney and Rumsfeld, etc were playing on it.  Republicans calling anyone who dissented a traitor while they were passing the Patriot Act.  It was disgusting and terrifying.  It's what brought me to this community, and I'm still here so many years later because Republicans are even more disgusting and terrifying.  I remember asking then when the moderates would take back their party.  How naive I was.

    Republicans: You can't slap the stupid out of them, and you can't smack the smart in to them.

      imagine we would still be paying so much to continue operation in both countries.  At least, we got our troops out of Iraq.
