I can say it well enough to get my face slapped. :biggrin:

(Of course, slapping a sharp beak wouldn't be advisable.)

Some of the stuff you say in English ought to earn you a face slap- and a kick in the nuts too.

Jakimbro - I think you should feel free to speak your mind and not hold back....

The ignorant close their mind and convince themselves that there's only one truth. The wise keep an open mind to the different possibilities leading to and stemming from the present. Look not with your eyes but with your mind.

Bedford's reasosn that he can't serve in the Military puts one in mind of all the other righ wing politicians and pundits who mangaed to not serve- yet are gung ho to shed blood now! Here's a small list:

Rush Limbaugh -- sought deferment (because of a cyst on his tail end).
George Will -- sought graduate school deferment, (too smart to die).
Pat Buchanan -- sought deferment (for bad knee).
Pat Robertson -- his US Senator father got him out of Korea as soon as the shooting began.
John Wayne -- sought deferment (to further acting career).

Sean Hannity: did not serve.
Bill O'Reilly: did not serve.
Chris Matthews: did not serve.
Matt Drudge: did not serve.
Steve Forbes: did not serve.
Tony Snow: did not serve.
Michael "Savage" Weiner: did not serve.
Brit Hume: did not serve.
Roger Ailes: did not serve.
Paul Gigot: did not serve.
Bill Kristol: did not serve.
Ralph Reed: did not serve.
Michael Medved: did not serve.
Jerry Falwell: did not serve.
Alan Keyes : did not serve.

Oh I didn't serve either. America's involvement in Vietnam ended in 1973 when I was 12. The next popular shooting war wasn't until the Gulf war in 1991. I was 31. But I did register for military conscription when Jimmy Carter started that back up in 1979. Would I have served in Granada, El Salvador, Beirut, and Panama? Hell no. Those were military operations under Reagan - Bush designed to get rid of the Vietnam syndrome and restore the American people's faith in their military as liberators- instead of being reviled as the ear collecting babykilling savages they had become in Vietnam. And it worked. Under 15 years of Republican rule, the horrors of the Mai Lai massacre had been forgotten and eveyone wanted a Rambo out there kicking butt. But all the militaristic propaganda never fooled me.
I had seen families torn apart and insane with grief from the war in Vietnam. I never thought guns were cool. And when I was young the military was the last place you wanted to be.
