There is also a petition signed by 50 officers. I'l try and find the story.
From the article cited...
"The statement, carried on the Web site AppealforRedress.org, was signed by 1,080 troops as of Tuesday afternoon, according to the site..."
Translation: 1.080 troop(s) may have heard about the petition and probably signed it, thinking they also qualfied for an iPod drawing!
Your contempt for the troops disgusts me.
I bet you got all pissy when Kerry inadvertantly called them stupid though.
Uh-huh! Catholic and a big one at that. That's what I am. Look at me!!
I guess you wonder where I've been
I searched to find a love within
I came back to let you know
Got a thing for you and I can't let go
My friends wonder what is wrong with me...
Why do you hate the men and women serving in Iraq and why do you feel it is necessary to insult their intelligence at the very same moment they are putting their lives on the line for you, an American citizen? For that matter, why do you hate America?
Notice I said "...qualfied for an iPod drawing..."
I did not say "...qualfied for a Zune drawing..."
You are sadly mistaken.
Some people go around the world for love
But they may never find what they dream of
What you won't do, do for love
You've tried everything but you don't give up
In my world only you makes me do
For love what I would not do...
OK, I have to give credit where credit is due. That's a funny post.
Why do you feel it necessary to insult the intelligence of the troops protecting you and your family?
My old oak tree has a yellow ribbon tied round; does yours?
Well shit, that makes you a real patriot. I bet you also have the car magnets. Let me guess, it's the trifecta, right? You know, the ribbon in camouflage with the cross cut out in the center.
I like when ItN makes himself look like an idiot.
Are you Dawn, awaiting the release of Tony Orlando from the state lock up?
The yellow ribbon is not expressing support for the mission! The yellow ribbon is a call for them to come home! Dont you remember? the yellow ribbon thing began in 1979 during the Iran Hostage Crisis. Is is a reference to the Tony Orlando song in which the yellow ribbon is a WELCOME HOME.
Poor little conformist. You dont even understand your own misguided symbolism.
If ever there was an excuse to flay Tony Orlando alive and dip his body in a vat of battery acid....
Not at all Chris; I am merely skeptical that a liberal-lefty outfit called "AppealforRedress.org" could be trusted to relay accurate information since they themselves claimed the volume of signatures; i.e., "...signed by 1,080 troops as of Tuesday afternoon, according to the site." Tony Orlando's tune seemed singularly appropriate...
I donated a decent amount of money to a unit whose soldiers didn't have proper body armor. If I'm going to support our troops, it isn't going to be a decorative effort.
An excuse is needed?
When I think of Tony Orlando and Dawn the first thing that invariably pops into my head is:
BITCHIN CAMARO, BITCHIN CAMARO
Doughnuts on your lawn
BITCHIN CAMARO, BITCHIN CAMARO
Tony Orlando and Dawn
Other than the fact you disapprove of the message and the messenger, you got any reason to doubt the validity of the reported number?
