I fully realize it's a personal choice (thank God) whether we choose to join the military or not. Out of my 4 brothers and myself, I and one brother joined the U.S. Army. This doesn't mean my other 3 brothers were cowards, because THEY ARE NOT, just as all who have chosen not to ARE NOT! I enlisted for love of my country, but to be completely honest, the biggest factor in my decision was because I was out in the streets without a penny to piss on, and without an education!

We all have a right to support, or not support this war in Iraq, but what enrages me is these political right-wing WARMONGERS, and people like Bill O'Reilly, who have ALL their children safely at home (STATES) like snuggly bugs in a rug!

NOW! On with my some RANTS and RAVES!

I would like to know how many of the sons and daughters of these warmonger politicians are serving in Iraq, because it angers me to no end when I hear them ranting and raving that this war must go on and if anyone is against this war, then they're UNAMERICAN! It sure as hell is easy to make insulting accusations when they know full well that their kids are safe and sound in the States, preparing for a bright and profitable future, while all parents who have kids over there, are being blown to pieces!! I'd also like to know how many of this new breed of politicians actually served in the military, and how many of them actually have kids in Iraq

If it's UNAMERICAN because I want ALL of our soldiers back home safely, including MY beloved brother from Iraq, then call me UNAMERICAN!

I applaud Rachel Griffiths, who is an anti-war activist and a member of the "Quad City Progressive Action for the Common Good", and who also has a brother in Iraq, for having the balls to ask Mitt Romney, one of the MANY hypocritical and cowardly right-wingers who support the war, and who NEVER served in Vietnam because of his Mormon missionary work, how many of his FIVE sons are were serving in the U.S. military. Griffiths continued by saying that if none of them were, would they eventually enlist in the U.S. military to help win the war on terror?

Mitt Romney obviously disturbed by her contemptible question, indignantly replied:

"One of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping me get elected because they think I'd be a great president."
