:: [Prev] who's fighting this war, and why [Next]
Ruminate This, on Jessica Lynch, one of the missing soldiers in Iraq:
I can't help but think we'd not be in this Iraqi place today were the children of our House and Senate willing to give their lives. Today, only one member of Congress has a child on active duty.
In this country of ours, opportunity doesn't always come knocking and education is a privilege afforded those who can afford. That's how our legislators have set things up for us. So, people do what they gotta do in order to survive, and in these difficult economic times, the military is a chance at an education and a future. Jessica Lynch's friends and family tell the media that she faced 15% unemployment in her West Virginia county. Straight out of high school and without a job to pay for college credits, what was she going to do? She signed on the dotted line. That's what she did.
I love this country, but I hate what our affluent and uninspired leadership has done to it. They have brought shame on this nation. I blame them for every casualty of this war: American, Aussie, British and Iraqi, civilian and military. If they believe so strongly in this war, their children should be fighting alongside Jessica Lynch.

Which, I guess, proves that girls can also be infantile racists.
