the bush administration says that they are fighting them over there so that we don't have to fight them over here. So what are they doing over here taking away all of our rights if the terrorists are over there.

1. Well, as for how someone can be a terrorist in his own country . . .
. . . just ask Timothy McVeigh.

2. Just start shooting at them
If they run, they're terrorists.

If they stand still or fight back, they're well-disciplined terrorists.

3. anyone who kills or takes the lives of innocents....
....is a criminal. To me, terrorist is kind of a loose term.......it can fit several definitions.

Many of us think Bush is a terrorist and he's an American!

11. many countries also believe Bush is a terrorist too!
And for all of Bush's crimes, if he really were held responsible, he would probably have to serve 1000 + yrs in prison!

13. John Brown's body lies a moldin in the grave-
Tim McVeigh was killed by the government-
How many KKK people have lived amongst us?
How about those who killed Matthew Shepherd?
How about Joe McCarthy?
or the Columbine kids??

We have plenty of terrorists right here at home- bush only calls those people who stand between him and the worlds oil supply- and those who don't embrace his 'imperial' ideas terrorists to stir up the passions of the 'ignorant by choice' american citizens- and to garner more 'power' to 'fight' his war against an enemy that has no real face, name, or country of origin.
