    most of all, filled with revulsion for the Bush/Cheney warmongering machine.  I am sickened that this is what our country has come to, and what we have done to an entire generation of young people.  Young people who asked for no more than to display their patriotism for a country they loved.  My sorrow carries over to those who returned, not just in caskets, but in bodies racked with pain, brains not wholly functioning any longer, families who are left to carry the burden, and finally, for these fine young people who no longer have futures.  Yes, America, we did it!  Some of you followed the Bush/Cheney warmongering machine right over the cliff.  And they, like most of you, are not sorry.  But they should be, and so should you be, and they should be put on trial....NOW!!!!  This was egregious, and the height of hypocrisy.

    I pray for these heroic veterans everyday.  They, like my husband (a Vietnam vet), returned to a country that sent them out like fodder, and when they returned there was nothing to return to, except pain, horrible nightmares, and for some, death, either by their own hand, or from the wounds they suffered.  Yes, America, we should all be kicking our own butts at this time.  Not only because we should have done better, but we should have known better.  The shoulda/woulda/couldas will kill us, and we probably deserve it!  But Bush/Cheney deserve it more.  And we should give it to them.  Contact the Attorney General's office and make him aware that we have taken the blinders off our eyes and now we know who and what the problem is, and it should be rectified....right now!  I have already called, so should you!

    As my friend said," I am not renting out space in my head to anybody."
