"KUCINICH? Odd."

I've never found Kucinich to be anything but principled, and his vote against prolonging the war until summer 2008 reaffirms this.

Fade said...

Oh, my mistake. Thanks for the clarification. I had heard that he was supporting the position in the bill but then voted against it.

Fade said...

Would that the bill was 218-212 for bringing them Home today.

Maybe if Bush dare not veto this, then we can start redeploying troops immediately.

Leave Iraq to the Iraqis. How many Americans would pay $5 to prevent more of our troops from dying?

And then you have the other side, How many Americans don't care HOW MANY TROOPS get killed in Iraq, just so they can save a few bucks on gas...

Fade said...

shit. That was supposed to be "How many Americans would pay $5 per gallon to prevent more of our troops from being killed in this war for oil?"

I'm broke, but its not that large of a sacrifice for me. Too bad the rich motherfuckers in this country are the ones who can't be bothered to sacrifice a few dollars for our country.

i posted about the same thing on my blog but i took aim at those "liberals". i swear to fuckingod they are a hot mess! caveman's comments are SO hilarious! totally entertains me. reminds me of a "faggot" in Oklahoma who voted Bush and felt because, even though he is gay, that it was OKAY for the GOP to denies gays to marry since he's a biblical christian. (but doesn't mind a cock in his ass like Jeff Gannon, Matt Sanchez, Ted Haggard, Mark Foley....)too many "faggot" republicans to list. Don't wanna use up all your blog commenting space.

Really? Someone spray painted a war memorial?! Funny, I didn't see that in the news...you been hitting that pipe again Cavey?

"We Did It - Bringing accountability to the White House"

Amen!

Though, I do agree that if a child makes a mess of his room, he should clean it. Yet, if that same child makes a mess in anothers room and kills people doing so, he should be brought to the police and justice prevail. Don't you caveman? Or do you think king gw is above all that accountability BS?

supergirlest said...

just piping in to say i thought kucinich was in support of pulling out sooner rather than later, but someone beat me to it.

caveman - one last time - the spitting on soldiers thing is pure urban legend.

Caveman said...
