    just how expendable I was.  Harsh lesson.  Learned.

    I said at the time, that I never wanted my country jacked up by some (expletives deleted) dictator or bunch of wannabe terrorists because of me.  

    Death is temporary, in my belief system.  It doesn't scare me.  Pain does.  But if losing my life saved others to do important work, well, that was the deal.

    Why the Rs don't get that, especially after they happily sent our life's blood off to fight in two wars, is more than I can fathom.  

    It's not about those four lives.  It's about cheap, sorryassed political theatre.

    I can say no more, 'cause I'm not supposed to use that kind of language.  But, by Goddess, I'm thinkin' it!!

      Vulgar language and all.

      Apparently your thoughts and mine are colliding 'somewhere out there.'

      I could never write half of what I was thinking about the illegal and unconstitutional wars and legislation that took away our rights (which have NOT been returned to us yet, dammit!).  If I did, the vulgarity would get me HRd into oblivion.

      Actually, in certain cases (torture being at the top of the list) words haven't yet been invented to adequately express my outrage over the fact that our "leaders" approved those horrors and apparently it hasn't stopped at black sites all over the world.  THAT's what makes me embarrassed and ashamed to be an American.

        meeting of the minds on these issues.

        Sacrificing for a common cause is one thing....watching those who represent us allow torture at the expense of rights we gave up for "security"...that's beyond imagining.
