    Thanks spike....I, too, am thankful to our soldiers, vets and those who have made that ultimate sacrifice so that we can remain a free people. And ya...these Hollywood celebs who are basically uneducated folks who happened to make alot of money have never done anything to help protect our free land but they are certainly all too eager to embrace its benefits.

    some good points... remember though, they aren't wrong to protest the war because they identify themselves as liberals... they're wrong to protest the war because, in this instance, they're stupid, and are protesting with a platform of uniform ignorance and lack of world perspective... if indeed they had *any* perspective, as the speech says, they would have long since been putting their energy into improving domestic problems as well. the fact that the bill of rights guarantees irrational people the same liberties it grants sensible folk, means you unfortunately have the loud mouthed irrational crazies shouting their thoughts more publicly than the calm rationals... since calm people don't make good news, we always have to hear about any little outspoken event that occurs.

    i honestly dont know who beth chapman is--i got it as an email from a buddy of mine--Biggin--i whole-heartedly agree as to the importance of allowing people to speak out on issues, it is that freedom for which we fight--i just get annoyed at pompous ass hollywood types pretending to know more than the average joe and using their fame as a pulpit--its irritating but thats the beauty of freedom
