The following is an article from "U.S. Veteran Dispatch" The jist of it , it seems to me, is a contention that it is never acceptable to change your mind about the correctness of the American invasion of Vietnam. Although i have been a committed Kucinich supporter , i was impressed with the right wing smears of Kerry! Perhaps he will make a good cantidate after all! Anyone who was a member of VVAW is showed great courage and principle. Best of luck to him!

Bush said he was too busy patrolling the skies of Texas. The reality is that both of them spent most of the Vietnam War boozing themselves up (and in George W's case indulging in some white candy on the side).

Only weeks after 9/11, the Bush administration set up a secret Pentagon unit to create the case for invading Iraq. Here is the inside story for how they pushed disinformation and bogus intelligence and led the nation to war.
The Bush Administration aims to recruit millions of United States citizens as domestic informants in a program likely to alarm civil liberties groups.
The Presidential Prayer Team is one of the many prayer groups that formed in the United States after George W. Bush took office in January 2001, and it has grown to be one of the largest. It originated in Oro Valley.
Preserving our freedom is one of the main reasons that we are now engaged in this new war against terrorism. We will lose that war without firing a shot if we sacrifice the liberties of the American people.—Senator Russell Feingold (D-Wisc.)
The Bush administration is guilty of so many crimes that they don't dare give up the grips of power. The seriousness of their crimes rivals those brought to trial at Nuremberg. Every single senior member of this administration is guilty of war crimes, war mongering and crimes against humanity.
Secretary of State Colin L. Powell said yesterday that he does not know whether he would have recommended an invasion of Iraq if he had been told it had no stockpiles of banned weapons, even as he offered a broad defense of the Bush administration's decision to go to war.
After Secret Agent Squirrel dutifully delivers the goods on Saddam's WMD, Bush and Cheney decide to have an 'inquiry' into that Squirrel's 'intelligence failures.'
It took 10 minutes and THREE "nobody move" highjacker commands to gain control of a locked AA 11 cockpit. Plastic knives and boxcutters? Where's Ms.Ong's tale of any struggle or background noises on her "tape"? Pilots dead, unknown criminal did the stabbings, plane taken over with Global Hawk.
BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 2 — A scientific advisory panel urged the Food and Drug Administration on Monday to issue stronger warnings to doctors now about the possible risks to children of a newer generation of antidepressant drugs, rather than wait until the agency's review of the drugs was completed.

"The Marines taught me to be a better racist," Leyden said. He followed the military example of tearing people down by destroying self-esteem, belittling and making fun of possible new members. Then he would rebuild them by offering friendship, loyalty and a sense of belonging.
Pharmaceutical corporations force medicate people with chemical psychotropics that were tested on animals locked in cages. Nazi chemical conglomerate IG Farben started force medicating "asocials" in concentration camps..
Like Navy Lieutenant John Kerry, I volunteered to fight a war in Vietnam. I was a brave young man of 20 then, and not afraid of anything. I was told I was fighting for my country and I was very patriotic and proud, even if it meant making the ultimate sacrifice for my country. I was never afraid. I was nervous with mortars, artillery and napalm exploding almost constantly and I knew I could be the next target

Over the Christmas holidays I managed to find two US soldiers who were back from Iraq. They were both somewhat willing to be interviewed and describe their time in Iraq in their own words.
I find it ironic that these groups have come together to become the ruling class of America.

The pharmaceutical industry already kills well over 100,000 people every year from correctly prescribed drugs in hospitals alone.  This does not include deaths occurring outside the hospital or from incorrectly prescribed medications, or the millions of disabilities each year. To further put this in perspective, the death rate from illegal drugs is 20,000 per year; the initial death rate from the Union Carbide chemical disaster in Bhopal, India was 20,000; and 58,000 Americans died in the Vietnam War.

Are libertarians going to allow their ideology to do their thinking? What good does it do for libertarians to go into denial and to call me, patronizingly, names?

It sounds like a sci-fi thriller: a super computer program that gathers dossiers on every single man, woman and child — everything from birth and marriage and divorce history to hunting licenses and car license plates. Even every address you have lived at down to the color of your hair.
It sounds surreal, but former Gov. Mike Leavitt signed Utah's 2.4 million residents up for a pilot program — ironically called MATRIX — that does just that

CBS is refusing to run the winning ad, "Child's Pay," on the Super Bowl. Watch the ad and join the nonpartisan MoveOn.org effort calling on CBS to run public interest advocacy advertising like ours.

And let us know you're joining the one-minute boycott.
