what do you think 20.Oct.2004 17:28

picture is great for comment

How do Jews, Muslam, Christians get along? How do governments get along? Is peace justice and the american way a contradiction in terms? Perhaps these people are married?

Remember context when examining an image. If people carried pistols more often, perhaps there would be more polite people or dead idiots. Time would tell.

Vets are a tragedy who deserve pity as a slave working for a master. Or perhaps a brain washed hitman working for Jesus, Mohamad, or god or some other like bullshit. The citizen should prevent the making of veterans. The state needs not be an empire builder.

How many US Vets and US citizens care about the mass murder going on and that they participate in. Its hard to tell from the mainstream media. The oligopoly really needs to be broken up.
Looking For a good Veteran is like looking for water in a desert
