  •  My letter to Congressman Sweeney (none)
    Rep. Sweeney,
    I see that you have a son from recent news coverage.  You, of course, know that we have a real recruiting problem in this country. I would like to suggest that since you are such a strong supporter of this war, a war Bush lied to get us into(please see,) that you should strongly encourage your son to enlist.  It would be very good for him, and would make you look like a real patriot, rather than a Yellow Republican, or one who loves the war, but hates any member of his family going to serve in it.  In other words, you would look less hypocritical.

    (My note - Rep. Sweeney's son was arrested for brutally beating a man, continuing to kick him in the head as the lay on the ground.  He is being charged with a felony.  Additionally, Sweeney himself has been known to be a wife abuser for years, as well as collecting many, many DWIs for himself.  Some military service might straighten the boy out.)

    "If you are not outraged, you are not paying attention."
