I have deleted that part of the reply - it was lazy and stupid on my part.
I have the utmost respect for people who fight on behalf of their country, but I have less respect for the government(s) that put them in harms way.
I thought your first reply was very funny kind of like the "Jerky Boys" humor, but after that it was downhill. You have to understand this whole war in iraq thing has got us at odds with eachother. There use to be a time when Americans could speak out against a war or other government position because of our hard fought for RIGHTS, but some have turned that into unpatriotic behavior that insults our troops sacrificing life and limb. No easy answers here, it's a different America than before 9/11. Not to worry though, we have a great crop of presidential candidates and one of them will resolve all our problems.
Tinmack, Just live and learn. No huge deal just don't turn this into an immature name calling contest. Take it as constructive criticism and move on. This forum has a lot of class acts and like drtyhands said nobody really has time to name call and act sarcastic back and forth.
The first post was funny as hell. (just read it...not knowing if it was edited) When he decided it wasn't, you mighta backed off. You need to be more like me, more poised, sensitive and tactful. Blue collar guys tend to have a wee bit of "heartiness" in their humor...lotsa stuff we think is funny might not go over the same with others.
