    I see at least one quote that was taken out of context in a weak attempt to discredit someone.

    It doesn't take much talent to "copy and paste" from a website with an agenda. You should have posted this in the CC where it belongs.

    Her comment discredits her entire family, while at the same time... advocates peace. Nobody wants to hear that junk, because nearly everybody inherently wants peace... and that was the intention of the creation of the "united States of America" (sic).

    Apparently, she started off saying she didn't want to hear about body bags and death count on the news, because most everything on the news isn't true anyway... but then she ends up saying that it's not something she should waste her beautiful mind on. Body bags are for the primitive farm boys.

    Interesting. :thinking:

    Those who love peace must learn to organize as well as those who love war.

    ~ Dr. Martin Luther King

    And not quite so much about peace, but more about Democracy...

    Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government.

    ~Thomas Jefferson

    The basis of our government being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to kept that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have government without newspapers, or newspapers without government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.

    ~ Thomas Jefferson

    Dictatorships are one-way streets. Democracy boasts two-way traffic.

    ~ Albert Moravia
