Just posted Bonnie of Frogma’s comment on Bring it on! If you read it you will understand.
I love the USA but I haven’t felt good about it since the impeachment. The one for lying about sex.
Remember he wasn’t indicted; remember that The Grand Jury hearings were a mockery because we kept on hearing things about it while it was happening.
Scooter Libby lied about much more important things. Obstruction of justice into an investigation about JoeWilson/Valerie Plame. There might be an investigation into the war in Iraq.
As I remember Clinton was convicted before the impeachment hearing happened by all who didn’t like him;though he was never even indicted. Have linked the official Impeachment hearings. Have separately linked an explanation of the federal Grand Jury process. I bitched enough when I was on a New York City Grand Jury for a month; can’t imagine what it’s like to be on one for two years. the University of Michigan Document collection Clinton’s hearing includes that and much more. It’s an amazing source of information.
When Ken Starr began his very public campaign against Clinton, mud began to be slung, and not by “liberals.” It’s Republican/Conservatives who have been throwing words around, and have been trying to make everybody they don’t like into a meaningless idiot.
Read the indictment. It’s in plain English. Libby lied!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope that Rove is investigated. Impeach Bush and that entire administration. They’re the ones hiding behind talk about moral values. Morals and values that they lack; read the indictment.
I’m very proud of my country today; I’m very proud of being part of Bring it on!
The radical right has gone around the blogosphere lording it over everybody that they don’t agree with, because they had the power.
I have been ashamed of this country since the Impeachment, then there was the stolen election, then 9/11. Gave Bush a free pass until he sent us to Iraq on March 9, 2003 to look for WMD’s.
I can be ashamed and still love my country. For America to become great again we must investigate the war in Iraq. Don’t want to see one more person needlessly die.
Scooter Libby sort of represents the entire administration to me. The arrogance, the I’m better than you, holier than thou attitude. He lied and lied and lied and lied and lied.
Investigate Rove! Convict Delay! Investigate the war in Iraq! Investigate Cheney!
We the people of the United States of America have begun to be heard from; we finally are beginning to count again. Not just the Bush administration, his friends, and the Internet trolls who are sooooooooooo righteous.
Not turning off comments; don’t want to be accused of banning, everybody I don’t like, when I have banned one person for making overtly racist remarks.
This is my country and I love it so much. Don’t understand how I can love it and blame the government for lying since before they were actually in power?
Maybe you will understand now.
ONE MORE THING: WE SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR BIN LADEN: THE ENTIRE CITY OF NEW YORK WILL HELP HANG HIM. AND I CAN’T THINK OF ANOTHER PERSON WE WOULD BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY FOR
DON’T TELL A NEW YORKER THAT WE LIKE TERRORISTS OR SUPPORT THEM IN ANY WAY. WE JUST HAVE NEVER UNDERSTOOD HOW THE WAR IN IRAQ HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH 9/11
This is going to be the best Halloween in New York in, oh, five or so years. Don’t remember it four years ago, no I was in no condition to celebrate. So when I’m asked “why do you hate America so much?” it stings.
9/11 was very personal; I have made peace with it, but will never forget it. Never. Almost a thousand more people died in the implosion than have died in Iraq. Hope we can keep it that way.
The first plane attacked at 8;58 AM. Two and a half hours later it would have been lunch time. The mall would have been filled with people who worked in the neighborhood, lived in the neighborhood, or were just passing through. I mention this because many people I know did escape. Had it happened later, I can’t and won’t imagine how devastating it would have been.
So when people ask me why I hate America: a few things; I knew that day that I would have been willing to die for my country, because I love it so damn much.
When did dissent become confused with hate for a country?
Why don’t we ask the Clinton haters the same question? Because it’s their right and responsiblity as citizens to speak out.
We understand and respect their dissent*, but they have never given us the same courtesy. Think that says a lot.
*While Clinton was president; during the after-election, and right now. Because I just might think that making light of the indictments is un-American.
