Comments: NUGENT

Ted Rocks! I pray he runs for Governor of Michigan. If he did, folks outside of Wayne County would actually go and vote, and he would beat Jennifer Grandholm in a LANDSLIDE!

C'mon Ted! Take Michigan Back!

(just my humble opinion of course ;o))

Very intersting . . . will have to watch the show when work ends. The Nugents' are very big supporters of the military here at Fort Hood too. They have some land in the area so visit often.

I just checked out Keith Olbermann on MSNBC spout the radical lefty anti-war gospel. How are media pundits being chosen anyway?

I am not such a huge fan on the Nuge, and he only appeals to a certain type of Conservative (I guess the South-Park Conservative). He was a coward and a draft dodger in the 60s, he had a child out of wedlock and only helped support the child when he was dragged into court, and his outspoken political views verge on the crass, like his "What's a feminist anyways? A fat pig who doesn't get it often enough?" That's tasteless and extremist.

I also wish wish the 'flypaper' theory would go away. Think about it, we are justifying invading another country so that the terrorists will invaqde it and we can fight them there. I'm sure that the Iraqis we were promising liberation love that bait-and-switch - "oh you were expecting freedom and democracy, well that will come along eventually, for now you get Al-Qaida bombings." If Iraq had a terrorist problem before the invasion it would be one thing, but they had virtually no terrorists.

The flypaper strategy is merely taking advantage of the terrorist's desires to destroy attempts at creating a democracy in Iraq. An opportunity, in other words: if they're going to stream in and put themselves in positions where our soldiers can kill them, then fine. When they stop, we can continue the business of making Iraq into a free nation with fewer interruptions.

I don't recall the flypaper strategy ever appearing in the list of justifications for going into Iraq. Establishing a democratic government was, even if those opposed to it like to pretend it wasn't.

Thanks! I have buffering probs too...but it was great...you know the whole "slaped silly" thing reminded me of when I get into a discussion with a German, and then they start correcting my German, instead of paying attention to what I am saying, along the lines of: huh? What do you mean? Well, that's not how you say it...you say this...because what you just said was that...yeah, and blah blah blah..." Enough for me to just say: yeah, argue my German, and not my points...that's the way.

Well said...You elaborated on everything I was already thinking.
