This country is f**ked!Lies, lies, lies, and the idiots that believe them.I remember Santa Clause. I remeber Santa as being real, then I realized he was a lie at around 8 years old. Is this an American problem where we are willfully gullible, like elementary school children, who believe in the tooth-fairy? Why do you maniacs blindly believe your "leaders" when you encounter lies day after day in your most mundane daily experiences? Could it be that you people don't know or care about what is real/truth anymore? Why do you shrug off childhood LIES about Santa Clause and The tooth fairy as "cute deceptions to invigorate childhood imagination".We have been deceived since we have been born. All the lies told to us since we can remember, we first, recognize then are free to think about said lie and why we believed in it in the first place. This doesn't end at a certain age. We are constantly being lied to and it takes a strong mind to reject these lies to uncover the truth. It's really scary what some of you people think. The division in this country is getting wider and wider. I will be making plans to leave this country because I know where it is heading. I feel sorry for the people that have blindly followed authority and power in all aspects of life within asking questions. You are the ones that are going to suffer the most. Good luck.

"that we have WAY outdone anything Saddam did."Um, sorry to burst your bubble. The numbers of deaths Saddam was directly responsible for range in the upper 300,000s. I remember one former Iraqi on the radio saying Saddam himself was a WMD. But, his words mean nothing to people who don't care about the Iraqis (unless they can use it to bash Bush & hate the US).I never said it was OK to lie. All I said was either you care about human rights, or you do not. You can't pretend to care about Darfur, then completely ignore the stuff Saddam did."for all our dead military men and women that he SCREWED out of a life"Despite what you think, Bush didn't FORCE anyone to join the military. If anything, they screwed themselves by joining. Btw, I love how you're trying to squirm your way out of looking like a selfish hypocrit who only cares for human rights when it serves your purpose. You can't get away from it though. It's a FACT!

Radical departure from blind faith liberilism is rishy for a Hollywood type. It takes courage today to stand against the prevaling unjdertow - Bush bashing.It's so fashionable to be among the trend setting movement of inlightened intellectuals who have declared our President unworthy of office.It would be similar to a collae professor telling his /her students that WWII was fought to preserve our freedom. The professor would likely be ostracized and labled a hate monger.But again we don't have to wory about an outbreak of courage amongst liberals.It does not take courage to jump on a bandwagon being driven by the liberals gods... Their idols in the intertainment industry.So an actor supports the President.I'm sure conservatives look at this as nothing more than a rarity among a group of people who's influenceis left to those seeking tabliod headlines.Let the liberals stand with their Hollywood gods.Thanks Micky .. conservatives are able to make up their own minds..

Collateral damage while we're saving them, right?I am stunned that you think that its okay for the PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES to lie about a reason for our men and women to go to war, commit the country and our soldiers to that war, and then make up a new reason for it that makes it all cozy nice and heroic for all our dead military men and women that he SCREWED out of a life, when his original bet didn't work out.How do you define democracy? Have the terrorists scared you so badly that you want to give it up? Its people like you that are allowing our soldiers to be used and KILLED for political gain.

I personally don't think Bush is a bad person but for all of you to claim ignorance on the Iraq issue and insist it was the right thing to do (knowing what we know today)you are all part of the great sin. What makes me laugh is how you Bush-bots bring up 911 when someone mentions the Iraq war. This is the height of stupidity/blind-following or better still "dummy". I am not too worried about this issue because the truth always comes out. A good majority of the people know now but some of you are still so indenial that when the truth finally sees you in the face, it would be impossible to salvage yourselves at that point..My Fellow Americans! let's be honest here.

That guy is Golden.For Him standing-up stateing what He's said takes balls. I hope it doesn't create problems for His acting career? My bet is, it won't.Now, as far as Laura's show; Monday she used the words Head Loppers, and I expounded on a saying anyone can use against anti-War Liberals; "So, I can put you down as a Pro-Head Lopper then, okay?"

If I may.......I'm just returning home to this great country once again after serving in OEF/OIF. I've read all the previous posts and I have to say.....I'm truely saddened by the way some people think about what we are doing and the way we think about our present situation. Yes, the military is probably 80-85% republican voters. They support their President. They stand by his decisions and the leadership. This doesn't mean that they don't disagree on occasion and take exception to some of the tactics. People, we are at war. Everyone is going to have their own opinion. Mine is my own. I serve my country in the way I see fit and not anyone of you can take that away from me or my family. Myself and the other fine men and women of our armed forces put our lives on the line and our families through hell. It's the choices that we've made and most of us wouldn't have it any other way. I take great honor and pride knowing that I've had the opportunity to serve my country. With that said, the units and people that I serve and have served with all beleive in what we are doing. Yes, it's not 100% but I can say it's damn close. To those that disagree, atleast they are there and doing what they signed on the dotted line for. For all you people here at home , if you haven't served and been in the sand or mountains of hell, shut-up!!! You have no voice for the military people. You can't possibly know what we go through or what we think. And your best-friends 3rd cousin from Podunk, Arkansas that knows somebody who was there don't count. For those people that have served but haven't been there, (GLB), just because "your" unit made it there, without you I might add, doesn't mean that they don't believe in what they are doing. But I'm sure a thorough fellow such as yourself did a comprehensive and exhaustive phone survey, with a +3 - -3 error factor, and found that all your like minded buddies were hating life because the AF is going to a 4-5 month rotation instead of 3. Ouch....Sorry. I just hope that the American people, the fickle bunch that we are, doesn't forget what happened almost 5 years ago and start to think that it's not worth it.......

Well GLB... is a reflex "usually" involuntary, or is it just involuntary?Here's some help for you:"In general, nerve function is dependent on both sensory and motor fibers, sensory stimulation evoking motor response. Even the autonomic system is activated by sensory impulses from receptors in the organ or muscle. Where especially sensitive areas or powerful stimuli are concerned, it is not always necessary for a sensory impulse to reach the brain in order to trigger motor response. A sensory neuron may link directly to a motor neuron at a synapse in the spinal cord, forming a reflex arc that performs automatically. Thus, tapping the tendon below the kneecap causes the leg to jerk involuntarily because the impulse provoked by the tap, after traveling to the spinal cord, travels directly back to the leg muscle. Such a response is called an INVOLUNTARY reflex action. "BTW, someone who has learned to type is considered to be using a conditioned reflex. I don't believe typing is involuntary.If it's good enough for an encyclopedia, it's good enough for me.

What I said was, if you REALLY care about human rights, then it should NOT matter if Bush lied about WMD. Saddam did unspeakable things to the Iraqi people. Liberals pretend to care about human rights, but it's all a lie. If they cared, they wouldn't be so pissed about an "illegal war" since Saddam's treatment was surely even more illegal. Do you care about your hatred for Bush more than Iraqi human rights? If you do, you have a real problem. If you do, you're one of the most selfish people on Earth! And, I'm convinced all these liberals are this selfish.

You're own hatred for one man is more important to you than the human rights of the Iraqi people. Shame! Would that be the same Saddam that Reagan/Bush1 (another corrupt GOP REGIME) supported back in the 80's supplying him with weapons to kill his own people with?? Would that be the same Reagan admin that sold weapons to Terrorists ie Iran???Good, to see that you GOP War lovers are up on your revissionist history. Oh that's right if it's not on Fox News it can't be true.

But you sure as hell dont hear them cryin like you just made it to seem either. Body-count my ass. There have been less American fighting men and women deaths than the entire 9/11 crime. OR would you call that a tragedy? I'll bet you dont find a connection between Saddam and terrorism either do you?

Good for him. At least he's not like these liberal self-righteous hypocrits who claim to care about human rights, but only when it serves their purpose.If you care about human rights, then it shouldn't matter if Bush lied about WMD or not. Either you care about human rights or you don't. You can't care about them for Darfur, but completely ignore the unspeakable things Saddam did to the Iraqi people.Mickey Rourke could give George Clooney a few lessons. Clooney is more concerned for his own hatred for Bush than he is for the human rights of the Iraqis.

You'll note that our fellow "progressive posters" have yet to answer my question concerning their continued use of the word "chickenhawk" for anyone supporting the war but not serving. How lib...can't answer the question, ignore it.If Republicans are chickenhawks as you so describe, how come the military continues to vote overwhelming Republican? Are they just that gullible? That dumb? That easily misled by the King Chickenhawk?There will be plenty of time to spit on the vets upon their arrival of another American win libs...with, or without you.

Yeah for Mickey, it takes guts to stand up like that in Hollywierd. I am in Baghdad now and have been for 18months supporting the troops. Whoever says they do not want to be here have had just one to many hits off of the Hollywierd Crackpot Pipe. The only ones that are full of bull are the reporters that hold up in safe houses at the embassy or Al Rasheed and Palestine hotels. The other day when a CBS reporter was "critically" wounded she was one a sightseeing trip and wanted to see what the aftermath of a VBIED looked like. Unfortunately it cost the country a good Captain the father of two little girls and a fine Iraqi interpreter. Not a word about that. My how the media twist and turns. God Bless Mickey Rourke.

Wow...that joe smoe is a smart guy! He can put together what he believes to be putdowns, like "Red State flag-wavers."The sad truth is, joe, most of us "Red State flag-wavers" (I live in New York) DO know folks serving their country in Iraq and Afghanistan. I know too many. I put in my time; many of my friends are still there. My heart breaks every time I hear that another soldier has died.But you know what? Unlike you, I don't pretend to support the troops to push an anti-America agenda. And I don't promote silliness like bringing back the draft, when an all-volunteer army has proved so much more effective, AND recruiting/retention goals are being met.Tell us, joe, what do you do for a living? Are you a college professor? A teacher? C'mon...we've got you and your buddy GLB figured out. You both hate America. You WANT this country to lose. You feel guilty for having life so good, in no small part because you haven't done a damn thing to earn it yourself (as opposed to, say, veterans). You don't like George W. Bush because he actually stands for something, and has all the principle that Bill Clinton lacked. And it eats you up inside.But that's okay, joe. After all, you can keep going into cyberspace and attacking the administration, attacking the war, and pretending to "support the troops" by calling for them to surrender.You're a hell of a guy, joe.

Americans in general have lost interest in Bush's Cluster in Iraq and know more about sales down at the local mall then they know how many of our guys got their asses shot off in a war that was supposed to be MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. I geuss anyone is a liberal commie if they do what should have been done at the beginning of this mess by you flagwaving Red State Rubes...ie question it?Get your collective Bush supporting Keesters to your local Recruiters as he is tired of waiting for the Bush twins to sober up and show.So why are we in Iraq this week...flagwavers???I SAY...bring back the Draft and then we'll see how many of those young Republicans are supporting this Moron and his Mess in the desert.

It's nice to see Mickey can take time out of his busy schedule working at Starbucks to declare his loyalty to the most heinous, lying, murderous criminal regime to ever occupy the Whitehouse. It's quite sad really. Mickey's career is so far down the crapper that he has to resort to this for attention. But, then again, Mickey's acting "skills" were never a factor in leading to his notoriety. What fame and notoriety he has ever had simply flowed from his reputation as a brain-dead thug, dope taking scumbag and overall degenerate. So his comments are certainly no surprise as it's no surprise who his idols are. He should team up with Dennis Miller. I hear he's selling cars in Bakerfield which pays a lot more than Mickey's making as a barista.

The comment by GLB is typical of Leftist lies appearing on BBS postings around the Web.The problem is, it's a complete lie.He insinuates the following: "For the record: I'm an Air Force retiree (20 years), and a card-carrying Republican. My old unit has been over there since the invasion."I too am a veteran of a long military career.And I can assure anyone reading this that NO Air Force unit has been in-theater "since the invasion." GLB is merely trying to make insinuations that will make anyone reading his post reflexively flinch--after all, who would want to see US troops deployed for three straight years, without a break? (Not to enter into this discussion is what, precisely, the danger to Air Force personnel in this particular theater is.) Additionally, given the typical Leftist agitator language of GLB's post, I think his insinuation that he is a "card-carrying Republican" is, at best, questionable. (Incidentally, I'm a Republican myself, and they never gave me a card... Of course, this being cyberspace, I could claim to be anything, as GLB has done to "bolster" his "arguments.")Sorry, GLB, your post doesn't hold water. Oh, and GLB, plenty of supporters of the war, like myself, ain't chicken-hawks. 'course, if you'd like to find out how much of a chicken-hawk I am, I'm sure we could meet face-to-face somewhere...

How About WW2? every heard of Adolf Hitler? he's one evil man, think of him multiplied by one million! This is the war we are currently fighting. These people have took the Koran and bent it, twisted it and mutilated it to serve their purpose. The extremeist Muslims want Islam to be the only religion in the world!
