Got to tell you today wounded made my day
I made my rounds today going to Hines VA Hospital bring some five dollar ca teen books to the wounded. When I walk in they are in song WAR WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR . That was ok but when they told me they all just voted . I ask what party did you guys vote for. To the man load and clear Democrat WOW that made this old vets day. Hey Bush troops don't like you very much.

9. I guess they didn't think cutting veterans' benefits further was supporting them.
Let alone sending soldiers into a war the administration lied to start, sending too few to do the job right and under supplying them, thus creating even more wounded vets to split the now less than too little money allocated to help veterans...and on and on, if you follow me. It's hard to lie to the person you're ass raping for long about the fact that you're ass raping them.

12. Thank you for lifting the spirits of those wounded and hospitalized.
And thank you for lifting *our* spirits with the good news. I hope all those wounded heal completely, in body, mind, and soul.

18. Good news!! Made my day, too!
Btw, docs at Hines saved my dad's life. If not for Hines, I wouldn't be here today. So, kind of a special place to me.

22. Last night on Letterman, when the O'Reilly segment ended, Paul Schaffer
went out playing "War, what is it good for? ABSO-FUCKIN-LUTLEY NOTHIN!"

Then, when they returned from the commercial break, Paul was still playin "War"!!!

Plus, Dave shorted O'Reilly with about a ten-minute segment...leaving twenty minutes for an actor named Altman.

The wheels are coming off the whole Bush agenda and all its supporters.

30. We Know it BUT DOES THE US KNOW IT
Again, this country would not be in the mess it is in today if the media had been doing what it used to do. And that is to inform this country of what is going on in our government. Things that are not front page news. The Downing Street memo...people here where I live never heard of it. There are a heck of a lot of schemes pulled by this administration that are not front page news.

But wanta bet that President Clinton having an extramartial sex act didn't get blasted all over the front pages for two years. I think where the democrats went wrong was to let the republicans buy up all the media. Now it is too late. Unless they start their own cable news and newspapers.

35. When you go back give them a hug and a big THANK YOU, from
all of us. When they joined the service they pledged to protect the Constitution. In that vote they carried out that pledge.
