Hannity Speaks with the Troops

If you didn't catch Hannity and Colmes tonight, you should definatly take a look at this Hannity and Colmes Segment.In an inpromptu conversation with a group of the troops, us viewers are allowed to hear directly from the troops about what actually happening over there in Iraq. Here are some of the points the soldiers touched on:

-The wishy washy intellecuals claiming that they support the troops,but in reality they do not, are just undermining the efforts of the troops.
-The only place we are losing this war is here in the U.S.
-The people serving are NOT dupped into joining the military.
-This war is not about getting out as fast as possible, it's about finishing the job.
-We ARE making progress despite what the liberals want you to think.
-The Iraqi trainees are already helping out and starting to be self-sufficient.
-The Sunnis and Shia are working together to create security.
-We shouldn't look for instant gratification in this venture, we won't know that we've won for many more years.
-If we keep to it, we WILL win.

The Iraq Study Group

I know it has been said before, but I would like to reiterate it; the Iraq Study Group was plan to get out of Iraq rather than win. If the goal is to get out as soon as possible, we have completely lost sight of our mission. If that becomes our goal, we will have made the gravest mistake possible. Jonah Goldberg gives a nice summary of the findings of the report:

"Some people want more troops in Iraq, so it calls for some more troops at first — so as to better train the Iraqis. And then, because other people want far fewer troops, it calls for a timetable for far fewer troops by 2008. Because no foreign policy commission could ever be complete without blaming the Israeli-Palestinian conflict for something, the group throws a bone to that crowd as well. And because Baker thinks everything is a negotiation, he sees nothing wrong with chatting up everyone — including terrorist militias and our enemies in Iran and Syria."

One of the most disturbing things about this report is that instead of placing the focus on whether or not it gives us a path to win, all of the attention is on the fact that it was a bipartisan effort. Oh, great, all of the members agreed that Iran should stop giving Iraq arms, how profound. I think that everyone could figure that one out without having to ask a bipartisan panel. Who cares if five republicans and five democrats agree, as Dennis Prager always says, clarity is more important than agreement. This is what Danielle Pletka, a vice president of the American Enterprise Institute, had to say on the report:

"It was about as interesting as a small-town phone book, I was amazed by the report. There were very few concrete suggestions. There were very few deep ideas. And there were very, very few plans for victory."

I don't think there is much more to say, the issue here is if you think the most important thing is to get out of Iraq, or to win in Iraq.

Assad's Syria: Time for a Change of Course? (Part 2)

(Continued from Part 1, last post)

Here, a strategy change with regards to Syria may be in order. The Bush administration, at the behest of its war hawks, has continued to isolate the Syrian administration under Assad, and prosecuted them as an ally in terrorism. However, recent calls from Israel, Britain, and important Middle Eastern allies have brought the possibility for cooperation back to the forefront. A recent New York Sun article explicates this new potential relationship. Assad, backed by American allies, has called for American cooperation and negotiations. Now, more than ever, is the time to establish a working relationship with Syria, not only to reduce Iran's geopolitical influence, but also as an opportunity to smooth over religious, sectarian tensions.

Such a strategy of engagement is a crucial part of any successful strategy in the Middle East, especially one which seeks to prevent Iranian ascension in the region. According to Jim Lobe, Syria remains the lynchpin of the Middle Eastern geopolitical equation (while this article was posted on antiwar.com, Lobe is legitimate, as a senior editor for the Inter Press Service). Cooperation with Syria would have several benefits:

  1. Hezbollah and other Shia' Extremism: Iranian influence in Syria's day to day operations, and close ties with the Assad administration have allowed it to continue to successfully support the Hezbollah terrorist organization, the primary agitator in the this summer's war. Cooperation from Syria would both reduce cooperation between Syria and Iran, allowing a more effective crackdown on Hezbollah. It would also reduce Iranian influence in the western portion of the Middle East, likewise undermining radical Shi'ism.

  2. Iraqi Stabilization: Syrian cooperation with the United States would help to foster cooperation over Iraq, especially with regard to their mutual border. Cracking down on this gateway for terrorist transportation would have the duel effect of undermining a terrorist logistical boon, as well as reducing the mobility of the insurgency. The second effect, (one which is not lost on the current Iraq Study Group) is the effect such cooperation would have on the Sunni militant insurgency in Iraq. By working with Syria, and the relatively Moderate Assad administration, the United States would have a better shot at cooperating with the insurgency groups, allowing for the formation of a legitimate coalition government.

  3. Israeli Peace Process: Syria and Israel remain two of the major players in the Middle Eastern Peace Process, especially with regards to the terrorist attacks coming from Hamas's Palestine. Syrian-Israeli-American cooperation (or at least diplomacy) would ease tensions over the Golan Heights, reduce terrorism (see Hezbollah), and isolate the Hamas movement. These factors would help to facilitate Israeli-Palestinian peace, and at very least to isolate Hamas diplomatically and logistically.

These benefits help both to smooth over sectarian troubles in the Middle East, but also to reduce Iranian geopolitical clout, helping to maintain the stability of the region.


Critics claim that engagement with the Syrian regime will only help to support/legitimize the current Assad regime which has been a supporter of terrorism, and has suppressed local democracy movements, and that a hard line which isolates Syria would be preferable, leading to regime change. This relies however, on a false premise. Namely, that the Syrian administration is on unstable political footing. However, this is simply not the case. American attempts to isolate Syria have resulted in strengthening Syrian dictatorship, as Syrian leadership no longer relied on western aid, but was able to support itself through the help of others such as Iran, allowing for continued despotic control. Additionally, this connection to Iran, not the administration itself, is more to blame for Hezbollah terrorism, thus cooperation would be preferable to competition.


On both sides of the spectrum, left and right, the goals remain the same. Stabilize Iraq, prevent Iranian control of the region, prevent the spread of radical terrorism, and secure peace for Israel and Palestine. And as far as Syria policy is regarded, the only real opportunity for positive change lies with engagement with Assad's regime. In all truth, only one option remains tenable.


The possibility for change always remains on the table. Unfortunately, it is our administration, rather than Assad's which the barrier to change remains. American military, economic, and political power makes us a more attractive ally, one which can satisfy their needs more effectively. Moreover, Syria fears Iran's radical Shi'ism just as much as all of the other Sunni regimes in the region, and their alliance with the Iranians has been a convenient one rather than a tactical one.


Is it time for a change in the course? Absolutely!

Assad's Syria: Time for a Change of Course? (Part 1)

The war in Iraq has shattered the old geopolitical orthodoxy in the Middle East, and out of the ruins Iran led by the Mullahs has stepped up, presenting a grave threat to regional stability. With the belligerence of Iranian president Ahmadinejhad toward American regional allies, primarily Iraq and Israel, our main concern in the Middle East is not simply maintaining stability within Iraq, but also containing Iran and ensuring the radical Shi'ism endorsed by its leaders remains in check. With this goal in mind, foreign policy scholars have isolated two primary routes to this goal.

The first way to balance Iran is the stabilization of Iraq, primarily with regards to the secular conflict which claims thousands of lives each month. An important note with regards to the secular breakdown of Iraq is the split between Sunni's and the Shia which is where most of the violence begins. While most of the Middle East is led by Sunni leaders, Iran remains the largest (and only) Middle Eastern nation controlled by Shi'ite politicians.

The implications of this religious division of the Middle East are profound, as American allies around the Middle East are confronted with increasingly belligerent Shia populations, sponsored in large part by the Iranian administration. Robbins, a senior policy fellow from the conservative American Enterprise Institute, demonstrates in "Let’s Be Friends with Syria" that this split between Sunni and Shia is so wide, that Iranian doctrine holds that the Sunni's must be killed, holding the position of an 'Apostate', a Muslim who believes in Sunni doctrine. These Apostates are (in the minds of the radical Mullahs in charge) worthy of death, because unlike Christians and Jews, they are not simply 'deluded', but they OUGHT to know better. This divide between Sunni and Shia has been exacerbated by the instability in Iraq, and Iran's main strength outside of its borders has been its ability to exploit this shift to destabilize its neighbors.

Therefore, a key part of the American strategy in Iraq must be to ensure Sunni integration into the political process (with many Sunni's creating the foundation of the insurgency against Iraq's Shia majority). Without their participation, it is unlikely that any truly effective coalition government can prevent escalation of secular violence, and create a major counterbalancing force to Iran's growing strength. It is for this reason that many scholars on the conflict have suggested that the United States actively pursue a stronger relationship with Iraqi Sunni communities, regional Sunni allies, and Sunni militant groups.

The second approach is entirely geopolitical in its nature, splintering Iran's regional coalition, and isolating it diplomatically. While Iran maintains close ties with many nations, two remain the most important in the Middle East's balance of power. The first nation is Russia, with its strong ties to the development of Iranian petroleum and nuclear energy reserves, their aid has allowed Iranians to develop their nuclear program, and modernize their military forces. The second nation is Syria, whose leadership under president Assad has found itself diplomatically and politically isolated from regional powers. Despite its strong Sunni majority, and opposition to Shia expansionism, Syria has found itself FORCED into a stance supporting Iranian military strength.

Syria in particular is important in this regard. The Hezbollah terrorist organization, infamous for its war of terror against Israel this last July, receives most of its monetary and logistical support from the Shia leadership of Iran. This terrorist organization is just one example of Iranian extended influence in the region, spreading and exacerbating the conflict between Sunni and Shia Muslims in the western Middle East. Syria's support of Iranian political doctrine has also allowed Iran to help block Israel from exerting its influence farther east, and has continued to prevent the stabilization of the region, particularly with regard to Iraq. Finally, Syria's connections with Iran have fostered the creation of a terror-friendly border between Syria and Iraq, fueling the insurgency movement. Clearly, Syria's geo-political alignment with Iran has been problematic for the region, and for American regional interests.

We have a new member here at A Youth's View from the Right, he is "The Mouthpiece of Truth." He is a decorated debater, so I'm looking forward to his posts. I'd give his credentials, but the thought of someone hunting him down with that information is in the back of my mind. Actually, I just hope we have enough readers for some of them to get fuming mad at what we say, but who knows, maybe we do.

Anyway, look for his posts, they are sure to be interesting in the least.

Rudy 2008

Now here is a republican who the democrats could deal with: Rudy Giuliani. He has began the process of becoming a Presidential Candidate. Not only could the democrats handle him, I think that republicans would back him enthusiastically also.

"The former mayor filed papers to create the Rudy Giuliani Presidential Exploratory Committee, Inc., creating a panel that would allow him to raise money for a White House run and travel the country."

I think it's funny that as soon as the midterm election passes, everybody (including me) is talking about the next presidential election. But I guess even after the last presidential election people were talking about Condi versus Hillary for prez. It's all one big campaign.

Hope

A new perspective in Iraq may be a good thing, but I don't know if I want it to be the democrats' perspective. The purely anti-war mantra of the democrats is noble and all, but it could be dangerous for America. The hope I have came from an article by John Gibson. Although it may be a bit too "I told you so," it has a good point.

"That is for the Democrats to abandon their anti-war election rhetoric, recognize this is now their war to win too, and help President Bush and the Iraqis make this go quickly and go well."

Hopefully these polititians realize that now they have been elected to office, they can drop the campaign slogans and work to find a better solution than running from Iraq and "talking" to the terrorists. Terrorists don't compromise, and we shouldn't compromise with terrorists.

The Results

When I first realized that the republicans had lost the House, and now possibly the Senate, I was a little upset, but now that I think about it, it will be interesting to see how this pans out over the next few years. We can't win every election, so I'm not too worried in the long term; this is a good time for the republicans to regroup.

On a semi-related note, I found this little story and I found it very amusing:

While walking down the street one day, a U.S. senator is tragically hit by a truck and dies. His soul arrives in Heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.
"Welcome to Heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."
"No problem, just let me in."
"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do is have you spend one day in Hell and one in Heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."
"Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven," says the senator.
"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."
And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down.
The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him. Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.
They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne. Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy. He has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.
The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on Heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.
"Now it's time to visit Heaven."
So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.
"Well, then, you've spent a day in Hell and another in Heaven. Now, choose your eternity."
The senator reflects for a minute, then he answers.
"Well, I would never have said it before. I mean Heaven has been delightful, but I think Iwould be better off in Hell."
So, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell.
The doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags, as more trash falls from above. The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder.

"I don't understand," stammers the senator. "Yesterday, I was here and there was a golf course and a clubhouse and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, danced and had a great time. Now, it's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened"?
The devil looks at him, smiles and says, "Yesterday, we were campaigning. Today, you voted."

North Korea, Sorry?

I don’t know about this one. It seems kind of sketchy to me. Apparently Kim Jong-Il "expressed regret" about the nuclear test on October 9th; does that mean he’s sorry that it didn’t work? He also added that North Korea has no intention of attempting a second test.

“Meanwhile, tens of thousands of citizens and soldiers rallied Friday in the North Korean capital to cheer the nuclear test - the first known celebration directly tied to the explosion, according to North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency.”

That sounds just a bit contradictory; and that was on the same day Kim made his comments. I don’t really know what to make of this, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

Bad News

Not only is the news that North Korea is planning on attempting a second Nuclear test unsettling, but it is also bad news. Bad news for the world and North Korea. They have no allies and even China is getting upset at little "high-heels" Kim Jong Il.

"The activity, started a number of days ago, included ground preparation at one site and construction of some buildings and other structures,"

This is the activity, coupled with insider information, officials translate to the conclusion that a second test may occur in the not-to-distant future.

High-Heels also claimed that the U.N. sanctions meant that they were declaring war on North Korea (Yeah right! When does the U.N. declare war on anyone?).

"The resolution cannot be construed otherwise than a declaration of a war,"

North Korea thinks that nuclear weapons would gain them respect, but the reality is that it lost them respect. Also, the childish statements they've made (like above), direct even more disdain toward the country. They are just digging a deeper hole for themselves.

Crazy Radical Lawyer

The story of Lynne Stewart is disgusting. She was a lawyer who was passing messages from her terrorist client to his "violent followers." Why? Why would someone do that? Who knows, she could have been the catalyst for the killings of innocent people. She has been convicted, but she has been granted the opportunity of staying free on bail until her appeal has been heard by higher courts.

I do think she should be punished, not because I think she will do it again, but out of principle. She committed a serious crime, and she has to face the repercussions. The defense presented her "recent bout with cancer" as reason not to punish her, but terrorism is a serious issue, and she should have thought about the consequences before she consciously aided the terrorist.

“This is a great victory against an overreaching government,” Ms. Stewart said, returning to her familiar feisty rhetoric, as she was embraced by her husband, Ralph Poynter, and her three grandchildren. “I hope the government realizes their error, because I am back out,” she said. “And I am staying out until after an appeal that I hope will vindicate me, that I hope will make me back into the lawyer that I was.”

I'm sorry, but I fail to see the victory and the only error is being to soft on her. She should not be allowed to practice law and she should face the consequences.

What We Should Be Hearing

Why doesn't the media cover stories like this, instead of portraying Iraq as not making any progress toward being self-sufficient. Iraqi soldiers are graduating boot camp at a steady rate; a new group starts their cycle of training every six weeks, and they are graduating by the hundreds (the goal is to graduate 1,850 Iraqis per class).

“The sooner the new Iraqi Army comes on board, the sooner our mission will be complete,” said Primm, 35, from Mobile, Ala. “That’ll pay dividends across the board, both for the U.S. and the Iraqi population."

This is the real way to get out of Iraq. Yes, sometimes it does seem painful and unnecessary, but in the end it is worth it; we cannot successfully force our way out, we leave when it is time to leave.

PC Watch

Here's another example of the extreme Political Correctness that plagues the world. I'm very anti-PC so when I saw the following story, I couldn't believe my eyes; in parts of Wales now, police dogs are being muzzled to stop them from biting criminals.

"it is another example of political correctness gone mad - putting the rights and safety of criminals before cutting crime and protecting the public."

The official reason the police department cites is to protect the the P.D. from lawsuits of the criminals who were injured as a result of a dog attack. But I think a more reasonable response is to take a look at the lawsuits, if the criminals are victorious, rather than the department itself.

I guess for me, the only comforting thought is that at least this isn't happening in the U.S. Every time I see one of the PC absurdities, I cringe. I can only hope that the people condoning political correctness start to catch a glimpse of how ridiculous and bogus it is becoming.

Good Thing...

Good thing this guy was caught. Dhiren Barot was planning quite an attack. He just pleaded guilty to plotting a terrorist attack on World Bank and International Monetary Fund based in Washington, the New York Stock Exchange, and the Citigroup and Prudential buildings. He planned to "to kill 'as many innocent people as possible' by blowing up some of the world's largest financial institutions."

He also described a parallel scheme that was to be carried out as well.

"The radiation dirty bomb project was not intended to kill but rather to carry out the objectives I referred to:, injury, fear, terror and chaos."

"The radiation project was designed among other things to affect some 500 people."

I cannot imagine the justification this line thinking would need. I'm just glad that justice is being served, and that Scotland Yard picked up this psycho before his conspiracy could be carried out. At least someone is watching America's back.

It's Been a Long Time

It's been a long time! Almost a year and a half, wow. Anyway, I'm back, but that doesn't mean that I will be updating everyday; I'm now a senior in high school, and that means a lot of work for applying to colleges.

A few days ago, I stumbled upon my blog, and since then I have been reading my posts nonstop. It reminded me of how much I actually enjoyed blogging. This is my first returning post.

About the same time I discovered my page, my father e-mailed me an intriguing poem (many of you may have received it too). If any of you remember Judge Roy Moore, the one who was removed from his bench for displaying the Ten Commandments in his court room. Along with working to gain back the right of publicly acknowledging God, Judge Moore wrote this poem:

America the Beautiful,
or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims' pride;
I'm glad they'll never see.

Babies piled in dumpsters,
Abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty;
your house is on the sand.

Our children wander aimlessly
poisoned by cocaine,
choosing to indulge their lusts,
when God has said abstain.

From sea to shining sea,
our Nation turns away
From the teaching of God's love
and a need to always pray.

We've kept God in our temples,
how callous we have grown.
When earth is but His footstool,
and Heaven is His throne.

We've voted in a government
that's rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless Judges;
who throw reason out the door.

Too soft to place a killer
in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby
before he leaves the womb.

You think that God's not angry,
that our land's a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait
before His judgment comes?

How are we to face our God,
from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do,
but stem this evil tide?

If we who are His children,
will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face
and mend our evil way:

Then God will hear from Heaven;
and forgive us of our sins,
He'll heal our sickly land
and those who live within.

But, America the Beautiful,
if you don't - then you will see,
A sad but Holy God
withdraw His hand from Thee.
-Judge Roy Moore

I thought that America the Beautiful just about summed it up.
It's good to be back.

Old News

I should have posted about this a while ago, but I just remembered it while talking to TokenYoungConservative.

It appears that John Kerry wasn't really the intellectual he was all cracked up to be.

"The transcript shows that Kerry's freshman-year average was 71. He scored a 61 in geology, a 63 and 68 in two history classes, and a 69 in political science. His top score was a 79, in another political science course. Another of his strongest efforts, a 77, came in French class.
Under Yale's grading system in effect at the time, grades between 90 and 100 equaled an A, 80-89 a B, 70-79 a C, 60 to 69 a D, and anything below that was a failing grade. In addition to Kerry's four D's in his freshman year, he received one D in his sophomore year."

So his freshman year he got 4 D's.

In a response to the release of his bad grades, he said:

"I always told my Dad that D stood for distinction,"

It would have been great to have a president with that rock-solid reasoning.

And if you are going to comment about how I am just attacking Kerry or that he already lost the election, don't bother. The only reason I insist on posting this is because democrats were so persistent on the "fact" that Kerry was the intellectual and Bush was dumb.

A Tribute to Ronald Reagan

He was a great American. He had a magnificent sense of American pride, and had an aura of optimism. Not only was Ronald Reagan a great president, but he was also a great american.

Ronald Reagan died today, one year ago. That is why I am writing this.

He brought back to the U.S. its pride. Something that had gone away during the Carter years.

He brought back a booming economy.

He brought down the Soviet Union.

He understood the problem with government, that it was to large.

He understood that the American people needed a real leader, and he gave them one.

He understood that the American people wanted his Four Pillars of Freedom: individual liberty, economic opportunity, global democracy and national pride, and he delivered.

When I hear his voice, or see his face, I am reminded that I live in the best nation on the planet. I am comforted that there are leaders like him, and that soon, we may have another one.

"Always remember that you are Americans, and it is your birthright to dream great dreams in this sweet and blessed land, truly the greatest, freest, strongest nation on earth.”

Lack of Research

In the comments of one of the previous posts, I found a great example of how much effort liberals put into their research. This is what anonymous said:

"Still fighting for the *cough* capitalistic *cough* way? Generally if one wishes to be taken seriously one should try to avoid spelling and grammar errors. Especially when you are trying to sound intelligent. It is so typically Republican to ignore mistakes and deny that they were ever committed, denouncing reason and refusing to listen to anything that does not coincide with the beliefs that you've already established."

And this was, I assume, the same person, but this was his first comment on this:

"Whatever your beliefs, however erroneous, I would hope that you're fighting for truth, justice and the *cough* capitalist *cough* way. Heh heh heh. Nothing destroys your credibility like mis-spellings. Go illiteracy! Encouraged by yours truly GW, and the No Child Left Behind legislation."

Usually, when you attack someone for something they said, you might want have your facts straight. This was my response to his second comment:

"Do you really have so little to say that you attack a single word? And guess what, capitalistic IS A WORD! Just go here to find out:
http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=capitalistic

But in case you are to lazy to type that in, here is the definition:

cap·i·tal·is·tic adj.
1. Of or relating to capitalism or capitalists.

2. Favoring or practicing capitalism: a capitalistic country.

Are you also too scared to leave an identity? I'm guessing that it was you who commented on this once before as anonymous, but I thought it wasn't deserving of a reply, so I didn't give one. This time I gave a reply and made you look like the idiot you are.

The amount effort you put into your researching reminds me of how much effort, or lack thereof, liberals put into their research."

This kind of thing happens to me all the time when debating the, in some cases loony, liberals at my school. I'm talking to them and I have them cornered. To wiggle out of the situation, they just make up some fact or circumstance. Out of the trust I have for them, trust that I have no reason to have, I accept what they say. Big mistake! Those days I go home and do some research on the topic of debate. Normally I can't find any statement remotely close to what they said. When I do find something close to what they said, the fact is spun to meet their agenda.

But in this case, I have a blog. You can't just say false statements and expect them to stand. I can fact check you in front of anyone who cares. When you are in any type of
media, you have to watch what you say, but liberals never seem to learn.

Teachers! (said with exaperation)

Teaching is another career dominated by liberals. It is extremely noticeable in the classes of: history, social studies, art, and sometimes music. But would you ever think health? I didn't until earlier this week.

Here we are in our cancer unit, and one day at the beginning of the hour, the dastardly deed occurs. He puts a video tape in the VCR and says that it has nothing to do with the unit we're in, but no further explanation is given. He presses play, and a clip from one of the late night shows comes on. It is showing George W. Bush giving a speech, and there is a kid standing behind and to the side of him. There is a big arrow indicating that we are supposed to watch him. He starts yawning, looking bored, looking at his watch, and other such disrespectful acts. This clip goes on a minute or two, and when it is done, my teacher doesn't say anything more except that he thought it was funny and that he thought we should see it.

He was obviously showing this to rip on the, twice, elected President, in a place where he had no such reason to. It's months after the election and they are still campaigning for Kerry. I don't understand liberals, I truly don't.

Fighting for truth, justice, and the capitalistic way.
