's message, "Cindy Sheehan quits" on 09:49:13 05/29/07 Tue
It would be tough for anyone who lost a loved one in the war. And to complicate things because of the nature of the war, what appears to be false pretenses under which we entered the war, and all the nasty politics. She said that the peacenicks seemed to have their own agenda and while she tried to find an ally among them, they were equally difficult to deal with. I donít believe that their agenda was her agenda.
You know that I have been opposed to the war from its onset, but Iím not a hand wringing, military is evil, peacenick. I am for a strong defense. I think that there is a faction of wackos in the peace movement and there are the Hanoi Jane types that bug the heck out of me. I donít generally hold the troops responsible for the stuff thatís gone on over in Iraq. I have cheered Cindy Sheehan because I believe that her cause was just, but thereís a way and thereís a way and she went about it wrong.
I agree with you about her losing herself in humanitarian assistance. Sometimes, the worst trials make the best of us.
I have been sort of aloof on this board, feeling some ambivalence towards politics, in general. I just got back from a week in Brigham City, visiting my father with the family, celebrating his 90th birthday. My dad loves to talk politics, but the things he says are just too painful for me to stomach. Seems that he has no regard for law. Seems that most Utah Mormons have no regard for law. It is truly a state full of sheeple. It depresses me that our own have become so war happy. Where is the love of God?
It will be difficult for me to vote at all, next year. If I do, it will be because the prophets of God have counseled us to do so. Otherwise, I think I would just stay home and watch the depressing election results.
I can honestly say, I wonít be one iota happier if Mitt Romney wins than I would if Hillary Clinton wins. And I wonít be one iota more discouraged if Hillary beat the socks off of Mitt Romney, or whoever the Republicans put up. Weíre going downhill at an ever accelerated rate and I donít see things changing anytime soon.
I was listening to Rush while I was driving, this morning. I canít stomach very much of him, so I listen to him in very small doses. During his show, he told his screener to be on the lookout for Ron Paul supporters because he didnít want to talk to them. Even Rush is running scared from Ron Paul, but it matters not. RP will be lucky to make it to the next debate, let alone get any positive endorsement from the Republican National Party.
