And how do propose making sure everyone gets dealt a fair hand in life? By stealing private property? MORONIC!
I always find it amazing that the readers of any newspaper would declare that someone's thoughts or ideas should be banned from being printed. The first amendment protects speech we don't like or agree with and is not to be altered or twisted. By the way that goes for the rest of the bill of rights as well.
Oh and by the way, if everyone in uniform was supposed to serve in Vietnam then who was supposed to guard the continental U.S.?
Sorry Ericson but you are wrong. Alot of Guardsmen were killed in Vietnam and served in every war we have been in and for you to suggest that serving in the Guard is avoiding service is a disgrace, but why should anyone be surprised. Mr. Heim George Bush served his country honorably. So what you are stating is a flat out lie and no I am not taking away from those who were wounded in combat. My point is that unlike, say, the Silver Star or Bronze Star etc. you don't have to do much to "earn" a puple heart except be in the wrong place at the wrong time. There have been men who recieved the Purple Heart for getting bit in the ass by a dog.
First Mr. Heim, I don't believe "coward" fits in the catagory of unprintable words and it always seems to be the left who talk about writers to this paper not being allowed to voice an opinion if it "Offends" someone. It is also interesting that the Left is always pointing out racist "code words" that only racists understand, yet you seem to know all of the words. Second, I think the point of criticism comes from the fact that Hagel has made divisive statements that he refuses to stand behind or explain, not his combat record.
Hell, if Clarabelle had to restrict her comments to a non-namecalling format and actually had to formulate a clear and lucid thought, we would never hear from her.
You are right Mr. Heim the Editor has a right to print or not print what he chooses. But for a reader to say that certain phrases or words should "not be allowed" is ridiculous.
I agree that Sen. Hagel's service should be honored, but shame on you for suggesting that Mr. Levy's right to free speech should be denied.
Come on Mr. Heim. During the Debates with Clinton people were shown rolling their eyes when Dole mentioned his service and it was questioned how he could answer the red phone and take a message at the same time. It's common knowledge Mr. Heim. By the way, the left does not need help from me in defaming them.
Excuse me I did not say that Dusty said anything about these men. He made a blanket statement about Republicans only loving "The Troops" who agree with them politically and I was pointing out that those who are guilty of this are not just on the right. Many on the left made fun of Bob Dole's crippled arm. Dole spent almost 4 years in Walter Reed recovering from his wounds. Bush was the youngest pilot in the Navy during World War II but that did'nt stop the left from calling his a wimp.
