Hi, KP.

More importantly, do you believe him. I've long said that if Bush is reelected, there will be a return to the draft.
You folks basically are claiming that any criticism of a completely screwed up nation and war are unpatriotic -- I say that whole notion is antithetical to democracy. Why have an election if you can't criticize the cockup the incumbent has made of things?

I've long said that if Bush is reelected, there will be a return to the draft.

And at the same time you have repeatedly refused to acknowledge that it is the Democrats that have sponsored bills HR163 in the House and S-89 in the Senate to reinstitute the draft. This IS NOT Bush's doing. Are you to blind or to biased to see or admit that? What part of this is over your head that you can't understand it?

That's not criticism. It's fear mongering. Kind of like

....the Speaker of the House and the Vice President saying that if Kerry is elected, we're all going to die.

I've at least heard a good explanation for what they said.

I'm not aware of any explanation for this lie.

No, no, no, Kiddpeat....get with the program, he's trying to "pull a Rather", the latest Democratic attack plan. When somebody accuses someone of saying "we're all going to die", you are supposed to blindly take their word for it.

You don't have to blindly take my word for it

You can read Hastert's quote for yourself.

When a reporter asked Hastert if he thought al Qaeda would operate with more comfort if Kerry were elected, the speaker said, "That's my opinion, yes."

Since "operating" for Al Qaeda means killing people, and since their goal is to kill every last American, Hastert's statement doesn't need any spinning from me.

Sorry, Josh, the words "operate with more comfort" is not the words "we're all going to die".

OK, how 'bout "large numbers of us are going to die." Better?

No Josh, it would still not be an accurate quote of what somebody said. You're like Dan Rather, you get caught flatfooted and you still won't admit it, but continue to dig in deeper. You are fearmongering with that mis-quote.

I didn't say I was quoting him. If "operate more freely" doesn't mean "kill more people," then what do you think it means?

It probably means...

to operate more freely. It will be easier to do whatever it is they're trying to do.

And what they're trying to do is kill Americans. Thanks for affirming my point.

"Hide it from people through the election, then make the move."

Is this the beginning of his concession ?

For many of us out here, this is not about conservative vs
liberal, or democrat vs republican, or the economy or Iraq,
or terrorism, it is a narrowly focused objective to
preclude an unprincipled, dishonest, dishonorable individual,
known as John Kerry, from becoming the President of
the United States of America.

He caused us pain and suffering those many years past,
wounds that haven't healed over time, and we are determined
not to allow him to cause this country any more anguish.

Re: Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt -- like Cheney/Hastert?
by Dave Konkel [Moderator] / September 21, 2004 3:47 AM PDT

Only thing is, KP, an objective view already shows the total hash Bush has made of the deficit, the economy, and our foreign policy, so there's no uncertainty or doubt that we should fear four more years of the same failed policies. Cheney/Haster's FUD are entirely hypothetical.

Changing the subject?

I thought I quoted Kerry saying Bush has a secret plan regarding the draft.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
