Prissy's Favorite Quotes of the Day...Hot Links

Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. ~Hugo Black, Supreme Court Justice That we are to stand by the president, right or wrong is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. -Theodore Roosevelt Oh how Prissy longs to hear these sweet words from our leaders today.... Hot Links Allow time to load This site lists location and nationality of casualties in Iraq Council for Secular Humanism Article of interest "Fascism Anyone?" Bush Trying to win over Americans on Iraq Please note what LBJ and the press were doing to justify the long going Vietnam war- watch history repeat itself from those who didn't learn the "Vietnam lesson". Red HOT Extra! Is Blair Drinking? You won't see this on MSM As sorry as Prissy is to hear this, it would certainly explain some things..... Coming Up Wednesday....Prissy Dissects the Illusion v. Facts: Bush's Speech on Iraq Prissy's hopes all will be listening to Mr. Bush attempts to justify the ongoing, generational war in Iraq. Let us hope for the sake of the dispirited, broken military they are in no way blamed for this administrations failings. Nor should those who protest the war be blamed-no more of being told they are unpatriotic, unAmerican or in some way disrespectful our troops . It isn't-however,those who put them in harms way knowing full well they had inadequate protection and training? They are the ones who have done a disservice to the troops. Prissy has experienced that most who object to this war, do so with our troops foremost in their minds. They don't want yet another generation of Veterans and a military broken by a cause like Vietnam did to the youth of the 60's and early 70's. They acknowledge that soldiers are human beings who must (and should) have a just cause in order to kill. Most people, to the disdain of this countries "elites", understand war is not justified to be waged for any reason other than defense of the homeland. The United States of America cannot take out every world leader who opposes Democracy, nor should we try. Try as he might, the President cannot convince Prissy or the Iraqi people we are there as "invited guests." Fish and house guests go bad after three days, Mr. President-everyone else seems to know this. (Maybe because most of us don't own a guest house?) So the old "bringing the Iraqi people freedom and Democracy" is really ringing hollow in Prissy's ears. (read Iraqi Lawmakers Call for Foreign Troops to Withdraw in Prissy's earlier post)
