Little White Crosses

A man, using a pick up truck, ran over the crosses erected by Cindy Sheehan and her supporters. Ran over the crosses bearing the names of the over 1800 men and women who have been killed since the war started. He thinks he did a good thing. That man, ladies and gentlemen, is the problem with America.
This administration would be thrilled if we all thought as this man does; thinking with blinders on, able to see only one side of an issue. One dimensional thinking will destroy this Country. Being unable to see things from anothers point of view will bring us down. Why do you think this administration has consistently undercut the education of the citizens of this country, from the elementary level to college levels? Because ill-educated people tend to believe those in authority because they can only think one dimensionally and because ill-educated people are easily controlled.
If we don't fight for this country by ripping the blinders off these cross destroying yahoos, we are in the truck with him.
Read everything. Examine everything, Question everything. It's what our Founding Fathers would expect us to do. It's what they're counting on us to do. I, for one, will not let them down.

LBG, While I personally disagreed with Cindy Sheehan, I respected her right to protest in the manner she did. I wholly agree with your comments that one should learn as much as possible about any point in political discourse. It is the mark of the responsible citizen.
