    Because God forbid anyone see a viewpoint from an honest American that doesn't kiss ass here.  The level of my outrage towards Bush is so that I yes, am getting VERY tired of all of these tactics on both sides. This isn't about just "ruffling the feathers of the right" and being able to say "take that Karl"(what the hell kind of baloney is that anyway?) The man should be in handcuffs for being a TRAITOR, not being called "Karl" as if this is just a schoolyard fight.

    This is about actually for once DOING SOMETHING CONCRETE to see them indicted for crimes against humanity along with the dictators and terrorists they propepd up. Why someone who wants that and gives an opinion on what they saw as something  that hurts that cause is trashed, just shows the "clique" mentality here.

    I feel for Ms. Sheehan in her loss, ( as I feel for ALL those who lost children, husbands, brothers, fatehrs, lovers, etc. even those who are for this war, becasue I know they too have mourned) and as a mattter of fact, as a member of After Downing Street, I contacted Texas TV stations to tell them she was going to Crawford, because I truly was under the impression something was going to come out of it. I also became a member of After Downing Street early on because I want to see impeachment like so many others and wanted to get the word out about the Downing Street Memo, which curiously we NEVER even hear about anymore.

    I lobbied for passage of HR 375 tirelessly, and was so disappointed to see it voted down by only one vote. But I too am gratified in a way that because of the efforts of so many, it was only ONE VOTE. But hell, don't give a shit about that and all the other people out here working behind the scenes to do something about these people. Trash an American for giving an honest opinion about a picture that eid give the impression I described, BECAUSE I give a damn about the results. An opposing opinion is also not unproductive if it brings out a valid reason for why someone feels the way they do in a civl adult manner. People who use this rating system just to piss on someone for the hell of it in my opinion are just being childish, and in this case doesn't change my opinion one bit.

    •  Geez, relax! (4.00)
      Nobody troll rated you and then you post a second rant about being troll rated when it didn't happen? Are you okay? What's up with that? And what's up with complaining about what Cindy's doing?

      We each just need to actively do something.  It's not up to each of us to tell one another what that something is, other than making suggestions or asking for help if help is needed.

      Much ado...

        That's why I posted that "pre-emptive" reply. Perhaps some of you then need to calm down. The way ones go flying here just because someone doesn't agree with you is astounding. So don't wonder why you got them back, since that seems to be the only reason why some seem to come here. I explained why I thought smiling in that photograph was hurtful to her cause. Perhaps if some who jump to insulting right away realized that different people have different perceptions, they might be able to respond more intelligently themselves. It doesn't make me an asshat, a fucking idiot, a troll, a RWer, a traitor, or any other assorted name some here pull out only when they have nothing else to counter with. My opinion was valid, and all the ones and insults won't change that.

      you've shown yourself to be a complete asshat countless times throughout this site. that, and you're batshit loopy.

      you. should. calm. down. you've got enough nervous energy to give a horse electro-convulsive therapy via a vulcan mind meld.

      so tell me, PAG, how's that research coming on the secret right wing plan to create hurricanes? we'd better get Batman on that one.

      Do it GREEN, know what I mean?
