Comment: John McCain did not help the POW organization. He had the FBI harass the group.

He was not a hero, but someone who had a father as an Admiral of the
Pacific. McCain was involved in one of the most tragic loss of life on a
carrier. His aircraft was at the center of the fire and explosion.

Comment: You can all go to hell with your negative adds, I'm an American
and as long as Bush is in charge I'll never sing that song or take my hat
off to the flag.

American = kill for oil

Comment: Why do We have the Spanish language in this Our Country the USA.
The Mexican language is not Spanish. They do not understand each other.
We had two Mexican men go to Spain and thet could not understand their
language. Also what happen to the Law that everything was to
be written in English in Our Country The USA. I just read it the other day
again. This is interesting::Searches
related to Mexican Language. Mexican language dictionary Spanish
dictionary

We Have Friend of both Countries. The Spanish do not want to be called
Mexicans and the Mexicans do do not want to be called Spanish. They told
Me that. They are different Cultures completely...

I've noticed that the outrage to the presence of Spanish in USian culture and that presence's percieved offence towards English is directly proportinate to the lack of ability of properly use English

As does everyone who wasn't born via parthenogenesis.

Comment: Is this what this Country has come too? These men and women are
risking their lives, to keep this Country strong (even though the gov't
has weakened it) and now, they are told they are not welcome! That is an
insult to all AMERICANS!

Comment: We need to cut off ALL FUNDING for the city of Berkely and advise
them that if they are ever attacked by terrorists, etc. they can call upon
what resources they have. We should be sick and tired of all the bleeding
hearts that want and expect the rights and freedom this country offers
without doing their part.

Yes, imagine Americans actually expecting the rights and freedoms due them. Well, I never! It's this sort of thing that's running this great country, I tells ya!

Comment: I HOPE THEY CAN GET THAT GOD GARBAGE OFF THE TV ITS ALL TRASH .IT
RANKS RIGHT UP THIER WITH PLAYBOY. RELIGION IS JUST A GIMMINK FOR MONEY.
ITS GETTING MONEY UNDER False pretenses. and that is a crimmal offense. so
are they not brought up on charges. when they lie to have people give them
money its stealing. i am from holland michigan i am athreist and dam
proud of it. and i dont care who knows it either.

One-Fang 21 February 2008 04:45 AM

Wow, another athreist. I didn't know there was anyone else. It goes 1, 2, 4, 5!! You unbelievers you!

Now, don't ask me how many of us there'd be if I could find another. ;)

Comment: I chose a long time ago that I would not watch ABC for anything
and I shall not change my mind until we see more support from that company
for our great nation and her troops! Hollywood is not the only place to
see animosity displayed for our peoples and nation and that on which it
has been built! And I shall continue to tell my friends not to do so! I
continue to wear a lapel pin of the American flag and look at it
proudly....... I am thankful that I have one to wear.......May God grant
us the pride that we need to display before the world - not cater to the
moneyed people that may keep us in the broadcasting business.

Yeah, support the troops by not watching ABC and wearing a flag pin your your lapel! That'll show those nasty bad guys who's boss!!! :lol:

Seriously, how does boycotting a particular network and wearing a flag on your lapel show support for the troops? How about volunterring at a VA hospital? How about sending money for body armor? How about actually doing something that matters, if you are so gung-ho about showing support? I very much doubt that the commenter here has done or will do anything of the kind.

Oh, c'mon, the OP knows the score. Mickey Mouse has used his wealth to cushion himself from the harsh realities of war. He, and his Disney hangers on, will never serve a day.

Seriously, people tend to think symbolic meaning carries equal weight as action. In some cases, more.

I love animals, and hate that people abuse them, so I watch Animal Planet. I could donate time at my local animal shelter, but that would be too sad. Even though my volunteering will do something concrete to alleviate their pain, I'd prefer -- due to my sensitive nature and love of animals -- to watch other people handle the situation.

Bolding mine

isn't pride one of the 7 deadly sins? so why would God grant one of the seven worst sins you can commit?

Wouldn't pride be a seduction given by the devil?
