Re: Not 1%ers this time.

This is a good cause, as the widows and children of KIA's get very little in return compared to what they lost.

For them there are no multi-million dollar funds such as the ones survivors of 9/11 benefited from. I'm truly happy to see this effort underway.

Re: Not 1%ers this time.

During the Vietnam War many pilots had an agreement amongst themselves to report each other MIA rather than KIA when they were shot down, even if it was apparent that the pilot was killed. The benefits for families of MIA are more generous than KIA. Not that in either case it's much to write home about.

Re: Not 1%ers this time.

I'm sending in the $35.00 even though I can't make it. Wish I could send more.

A 5 day ride from Indy to Salt Lake in the summer? Bring lots of JC Whitney liquid bug remover. Splat. Beer works good too btw.

I don't understand why these types of fund raising should even be necessary. Our government trashes our military in an inexplicable fiasco in Iraq with no explanation or plan and without a hint of compassion for those who are forced to support it. It's not possible to host enough rides and rallys to compensate for the losses. What a ***** waste!

Those are pretty good.



My favorites are:

Driver carries only $20 in ammunition.

"Jesus was a social activist - that is a liberal."



Yeah. Hitler and Stalin were social activists too.



As with political slogans, most of them are just plain stupid. Funny but stupid. Ya gotta feel sorry for simpletons like that trying to get through life.

To me, the really scary thing is the fact our elected officials used slogans and sound bites just like these to get where they are today. Bottom line: These short sound bites are easy to remember and get an emotional reaction every time. As meaningless as they are, they work!!!



Scary huh?

I applaud them but call a spade a spade.

""As an unfortunate consequence of America's war on terror, many children of our active-duty military personnel are now members of single-parent families," Bock said. "In most cases, this also means their chances to attend college have greatly diminished. Children of military personnel who die on active duty are entitled to receive some money toward a college education, but it is not enough."

'

Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.. The first sentence should read As an unfortunate consequence of Bush's unecessary Iraq war, many children of our active-duty military personnel are now members of single-parent families By the way Osama Bin Laden is still alive and freee..Red staters wake up...

Do you have to polticize everything? Why don't you just have a big drink of Shutthefukup? After all, you liberals have stumbled us into the worst bloodlettings in history all last Century. Too bad not one of you has one ounce of shame.

Of course not. They went to Afganistan to chase the terrorists on our behalf - God bless 'em. It's the diversion to Iraq where all the useless bloody carnage is taking place that defies logic. Rumsfeld and Bush should be ashamed.

If you are against gay marriage don't get one..

I am not a liberal nor am I a misguided Neocon. I am a fiscal conservative social liberal. If you are against gay marriage don't get one.. My politics are closer to G.H.W. Bush, Colin Powell, John McCain etc. Then Ted Kennedy, etc.
