Re: “Hey Soldiers: Quit Whining!

weldo, It is painfully obvious that there are a lot of things you never heard of. At the top of the list is independent thought. One thing I know would happen if we pulled out is that our troops would be over here to stop any bearers IEDs from roaming freely about the country. Also, Kansas and other states would have National Guard equipment available for when tornadoes or other disasters struck. How is this "Cival" (hint: if a word is underlined with red when you type your comment, it means the word is misspelled)war going to occur? Are the "terrerists" going to be granted citizenship when they arrive? I think it has been made illegal to hand out sandwiches and coffee to anybody. Another freedom lost even while US troops are fighting for it in Iraq. What makes you think they would come across the Texas border? Why wouldn't they just set the teleporter to deliver them directly to Oklahoma? Turn yourself in for a few weeks of deFOXification and see if that doesn't help you to understand the real world a little better. I did order two of Ted Rall's books. One of them is coloring book, I think. I send it to you if you like.

Re: “Hey Soldiers: Quit Whining!

Thank you Ted for writing this column. I plan to buy your book. Another matter I wish you would address, if you have not already, is the statement "the soldiers are defending our freedoms." No one should have to dig to figure out the fallacy of this statement. It should leap right out at them. The soldiers, if they defend anything, defend the government while the government works steadily to diminish our freedoms. The soldiers also inflict the US's foreign policy on the rest of globe. Active & retired military personnel contributed about $35,000 to Ron Paul's campaign last quarter, well ahead of McCain's second place $22,000. But, this was an average of $500 per contribution, which is only 70 contributors. If the number of contributors were 7000 at $5 each, that would be a statement.
