22. No--you didn't call me a name but you insinuated that I am an apologist
and accomplice for those swift boat assholes.
All in all-I'd rather be called an ass--TYVM.
In 20 days, you want to go to Washington--rounding up thousands of these people who most likely will still be in long-term shelters, and expect them to go up against a highly oiled smear machine so that we can get George Bush out of office.
I'm sorry--I think telling their story is sufficient for right now,
UNLESS THEY ORGANIZE and need help, I think everyone else should stay out of it, because then it is policitizing their tragedy in a way that is unforgivable.
There is enough failure of the government to act on without propping these people up in Washington as poster children.
