    Since "the government" is not responsible for feeding our kids, how can they "abandon" kids to Big Food? Whatever happened to parental responsibility? My mom and dad made sure they knew what I was eating. I detest the Bush administration and abhor most of what they are doing, from Iraq to the environment. But this is liberal claptrap.

    Sheldon Rampton's column is interesting and enlightening. But it is more than a little unfair to the uniformed military, which has been put in its currently difficult position - recruiting-wise - by the madness of King George and his War Minister Rumsfeld. Say you're an Army Sergeant First Class (SFC, E-7) in Dayton, Ohio and you're charged with signing up 10 men or women each month. Your quota, the pressure on you, and your sworn obligation aren’t diminished by the fact that the civilian leadership in the West Wing and Pentagon has no idea what the hell they're doing in Iraq. You still have to do your job, and in fact, the men and women "over there" depend on you since they don't leave until they are replaced. So you use the tactics that work, and that recruiters, frankly, have always used. That doesn't make them wrong, or dishonest. Anyone who doesn't know what's going on in Iraq is culpably ignorant, more so any young person who contemplates joining the military. Let's focus less on the underpaid airmen, soldiers, sailors and Marines who are doing their jobs, and more on the clowns who've sent them in harm’s way without a plan nor a way to get out.

    Don't you get it? This is brought to you by the same asswipe brigade headed by Karl (Turd Blossom) Rove that called destroying the last shreds of the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 8th amendments the "USA PATRIOT" Act, cobbled out of an asinine and meaningless newspeak phrase. Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism ... Global SAVE, get it?! With the boy emperor as, you got it, the head SAVior.

    So "global struggle against violent extremism" replaces "global war on terror" ? Could this also mean the "last throes of neocons against World peace" (did Dick dig that one ?) or an end to the "global destruction of the American ideal by warmonger fanatics" ? No way Jose : they're talking about "violent extremism", which is so much unlike White House extremism. When a "violent extremist" performs torture, he is attacking civilization. When a White House extremist makes torture legal, he is protecting the nation. It took them four years to realize the solution was "more diplomatic, more economic, more political than it is military" ? It won't take long for the World to remember diplomacy and economy are in the hands of Lobby Dick Cheney while politics remain in the pristine claws of Karl Rove. Stephane MOT
