I just visited that site and loved it. I have seen a Code Pink sticker on a car here in OKC before and I knew what it meant and to tell you the truth (And I am not a violent person) it took everything I had inside me not to run them off the road. After the hell they give the wounded soldiers (Which I didnt know was still going on) I cant gaurantee that it wont ever happen.
Sometimes when I take my son to the VA hospital, I look for them, thank heavens I never see them. Maybe there is only one Code Pink person in OKC. For thier sake I hope so.

Lol...Marie, come back in a day or two...I will put up a hilarious video clip that you will absolutely love! I bring it up because of your comment on running someone off the road over a bumpersticker.

Murtha's accomplishments in Viet Nam have become insignificant. His present anti-American position cancels out anything good he has done in the past. He should return his medals.

Mark is right: his position does cancel out his past. But let's remember that anyone who is hit by the enemy, no matter how slight, can get a purple heart; and Patton said that purple hearts were nothing to be proud of as they proved the enemy had scored one! I don't have the exact quote, but my husband, a retired Army Officer and admirer of Patton's swears he said it, and I believe him.

Speaking of quotes, I love the Reagan quotes in your last post. Thank you for them. I would have posted that on the correct post, but I don't know if you read your old comment sections.

"Old"? I wrote that post and this one in the same night! Your comment is one of the reasons why I'm afraid of posting too much in one day: I fear burying a good post, as I'm not sure how many of my infrequent visitors will actually take the time to scroll down to older posts that they've missed.

Yes, Gayle, I do read older posts' comments. I have the setting on such that I am notified whenever someone leaves a comment. I had someone not too long ago, leave a comment on a post that I think is dated back in August.

The question is: Do you ever go back and follow up with the comments and questions you've left behind? I'm sure I left messages, responding to comments you made yesterday.

As for Murtha, I think attacking his war record is still dangerous grounds politically. It's better to just respect the fact that he served honorably in the military, and just move on from there. Being non-military, it's not really my place to judge the circumstances around how a soldier earns his purple heart, whether a scratch or a limb blown off. Soldiers can deem for themselves the worth or irrelevance of a purple heart.

And yes, I know which quote of Patton's you are referring to.

Something happened to Murtha and it wasn't good because he lost what it means to be a member of the military and he's lost the respect of all our warriors with his careless words.
