"I'm glad we got this straightened out"

There's humor here somewhere.......

Who am I ?

I was against the first Iraq war. I am against the second Iraq war, but I voted for it. Now I'm against it but I was for it. I support the UN. I'm against terrorism and against the Iraq war. But I voted for the Iraq war. So, I voted against the first war and supported the second war, wait.....

I'm against gay marriage but for gay unions. I support gays but think the San Francisco mayor is wrong. I support gay marriages. No, wait, gay unions.

I'm Catholic. Wait, I'm Jewish. My dad was Jewish. But I was raised Catholic. What am I? I don't want to confuse people.

I am for abortions, but wait, I'm Catholic, and Catholics are pro-life. But I might consider putting pro-life judges in office, but I'm not sure. I do know I voted for a pro-life judge, but I stated that it was a mistake.

I went to Vietnam. But I was against Vietnam. I testified against fellow U.S. Troops in Vietnam, threw my medals away and led others to do the same. But I am a war hero. Against the war.

I stated I threw my medals away then I threw my ribbons away. I then revealed that I threw my ribbons away but not my medals, then lately I stated that I threw someone else's medals away and never threw anything of mine away.

I believe Ribbons and medals aren't the same thing. Medals come with ribbons, so now I believe that ribbons and medals are the same thing besides the fact that ribbons are cloth and medals are medal.

I wrote a book that pictured the U.S. Flag upside-down on its cover. But now I fly and campaign in a plane with a large flag right-side up on it. But sometimes, we fly upside-down for fun.

Yasser Arafat is a hero and a statesman. The Israelis shouldn't kill Palestinian terrorists, but they should stop terrorism. Yasser Arafat is a terrorist supporter. I support Mideast peace.

I am for the common man. I am against the rich. But my family is worth $300 million dollars has a jet and many SUV's. I am the common man.

I am against sending jobs overseas. My wife is an heir, which 'heir-dom' has most factories offshore. I am against rewarding companies for exporting jobs, as long as it is not the 'heir-dom.

I own $1 million in Wal-Mart stock. I believe Wal-Mart is evil by driving small business owners out of town. I am a capitalist and I own part of Wal-Mart but I am a good guy for small corporate America.

I own SUV's when I talk to my followers in Detroit, Michigan, my wife's family owns SUV's, I don't, when I talk to tree hugging followers. I have a campaign jet that gets 1/3 mpg, which is great fuel efficiency.

I am against making military service an issue in presidential elections. I defended a draft dodger President and stated that all serve in their own capacity whether they draft dodger or not. Did I mention, I served in Vietnam and am a hero? Are you questioning my patriotism? I served in Vietnam.

I have three purple hearts! I am a hero. I am qualified to run this country since I served.

Who am I ?

I?m not pro any political party. I don?t vote any political party line. I vote for individual candidates. I will vote for G W Bush in 2004 because I don?t believe we should change administrations in the middle of a shooting war. I will vote for G W Bush in 2004 because I want to make sure J F Kerry is defeated.

As only a veteran can appreciate, particularly a veteran who has seen combat up close and personal with the enemy in a shooting situation, no ?MAN? bugs-out; dee-dee mau?s; deserts, or abandons his comrades during a fight. Vietnam was a fight. The normal tour in Vietnam was a year or so.

No ?MAN? would embarrass himself by going to an aid station for a band-aid, or for anything that a field medic couldn?t have cared for.

Kerry did all of those things.

Not only those 35 or 40 years ago, which should have been left in history except for the fact that Kerry himself came out wearing them as a badge of honor for campaign purposes, but also as recently as 2001.

In 2001 the Vietnam Human Rights Act was introduced in Congress. It tied future U.S. aid to Vietnam to the Hanoi government improving its abysmal human rights record, including persecution of the Montagnards. It passed the House with 410 ayes and only one no. But in the Senate, Kerry locked the bill up in committee and refused to allow it to go the floor for debate and a vote. In effect, Kerry killed the human rights bill.

As everyone who fought alongside the Montagnards can attest, these indigenous fighters, and their families who traveled with them, were courageous and loyal beyond doubt or question. This country abandoned them to the battle field and the North Vietnamese when we pulled out of Vietnam. And now in 2001, ?Hero? Kerry again abandoned them.

During his many years in the US Senate, Kerry didn?t think ?intelligence? sufficiently important to attend meetings. He thereby abandoned his duty to this country.

I have not been made aware of any significant piece of legislation coming out of the Congress, in all those years Kerry served, which carried his name as the sponsor.

I have witnessed his continual ?flip flop? on issues/questions during the many, many months of the Democratic Campaign, to the extent that I don?t believe he has put anything in black or white categories in his own mind, leaving everything in muddled shades of gray.

This country deserves a ?LEADER?. John F Kerry is not such a person.

Actually Del Kerry took care to provide...

safer jobs for his crew.

From his Boston Globe Biography (4th paragraph from the bottom):

Kerry's early departure meant that he was leaving behind a crew that had suffered through many bloody battles with him. Worried that crew members would be killed, he arranged for them to receive a safer assignment. When one crew member, Medeiros, tried to stay, Kerry "came and talked to me and said, `I really would like you to go. ... I'd like to know you are safe, or safer."'

I can't say it better than Now maybe this doesn?t raise question for some but I couldn?t help but wonder, how does a Lieutenant (jg) arrange to have an entire combat crew rotated out of combat before their time was up? That?s a pretty tall order to fill, especially for an officer who admits he has turned on the war. It wouldn?t seem logical that Lt. Kerry?s higher-ups would be willing to embrace his pacifism given the fact that they and the crew that Kerry was trying to rotate to non-threatening duty would remain in country unless there was political pressure asserted.

Another question that was generated was this: what would you do to help out a guy who got you rotated out of life-threatening duty in Vietnam?

Let me see? I do detect the faint scent of estate dog runs. Give me a minute. I know I can figure this out.
