It's sad to see debate over policy come to this- does it really accomplish anything? I don't think McCain is going to go: "Whoops, you know what- I think I am against the war now."
But this may be the future of protests, since nobody seemed to notice when millions of people gathered in the streets prior to the invasion of Iraq. Take over the cable news networks- and destroy the sound bytes- and you can make a pretty big impact on the public discourse.
At a recent "town hall" meeting in Virginia, when a high school student had the audacity to ask Senator McCain "what is your purpose in being here?" the senator joked "I knew I should have cut this thing off. This meeting is over!"
We're fighting the lower class in America (in Iraq).
It's a transfer of wealth.
They spend all the money, crash the economy, transferring all wealth via taxation to their rich friends (ie: big oil/auto/private contractors/other dirty energy companies etc etc) and also secure more land all with the full willingness of the religious NUTS that think they are setting the stage for "the second coming".
It's just the new CRUSADES mixed with a new form of comfortable DEPRESSION.
Merry Christmas, enjoy that Starbucks and that HD TV, it's gonna cost ya...
Will somebody answer the following questions please
Who are we fighting in Iraq?
What does surrender in Iraq actually mean?
What is victory in Iraq?
Our troops have served their country valiantly, how could they not come home with honor?
We are winning in Iraq, what does that actually mean?
Give me a break John McCain, America was strong way before your dumbass decided to run for president. This is just another example of rallying the american people behind another money hungry, senseless war. Lets bring our troops home and go forward as the leaders of the free world, let the lies stop.
Oh look, mcVain and his supporters occupied a whole 1/4 of a gymnasium - oh wow, yawn!
He says he will never surrender in Iraq - right, he's already a POW of Iraq and he wants to make you one also - right along with those unfortunate American troops there.
And, right at 4:13 seconds into his spitch, he says "by the way, I will never surrender in Iraq... " do you see what I mean when I say he suffers from untreated Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome? He feels unhinged and dis-empowered by the protesters so what is his first reaction? Revert to the old wound of course - where his self identity is wrapped up, where his unresolved conflict lies - where he felt and still feels dis-empowered, previously - as a POW.
Trouble is, America is not his own little play toy to futilely and wrongly struggle with his inner demons - at our expense. He has no objectivity and no perspective of value or meaning - it's his own little head trip. Get therapy mcVain and stay away from sharp objects.
Since he can not wrestle his inner demons successfully by sending American soldiers to their death and irresponsibly wasting billions and billions and billions of tax payers dollars, he will most certainly fail and make us all POW's of an extended, ridiculous war - I mean even worse than his idol Bush.
Can you believe the people of Arizona voted this guy into office? Ya, well - I'm not picking on Arizone-ians, LOL.
