I think I did ease up, compared to most of the vitriol spewed on here. I get tired of all this Lib/Con shit.LTD wrote:First of all ditch..I am FAR from conservative. And I apologize....I didn't mean to leave out anybody with my statement. Nowhere did I say because he can fish he's a better guy than you or anyone else. I simply said you would likely enjoy the day. Ease up there ditch......ditchdoc wrote:Yeah, you're probably right. He probably can out fish me. He's a rich fat-cat, and has lots more money and opportunities to fish than most of us. Doesn't make him a better man or person than anyone else. I think it's pretty hilarious, and telling, that you say he can out fish us liberals. I guess being a conservative makes you, automatically, a fishing god. You conservatives are a riot. I think your kool-aid has gone bad on you.LTD wrote:You Libs crack me up! Funny thing is.....we put Dick in the same boat without any political discussion and no prior knowledge as to who he is you would likely enjoy the day. Not to mention there's a good chance he would out fish most of you. His fishing ability is WELL above average and that was in "94".
I don't condone ANY type of torture. When our country tortures, it means any country can torture. It does not make it right. I don't want those fanatics of any stripe to be able to say, "Hey the US does it, so it's okay for us to do it." You forget those soldiers burned and drug through the streets and hung up on a bridge? War is bad enough without atrocities. If we condone torture, we are no better than our enemies. Torture was always, until the Bush administration, a thing which kept this country on the moral high-ground. Pretty easy for someone (and I don't mean you, particularly) who has never, or will never, put himself in harms way to say that torture keeps us free. And, it's not "tearing down this country" to speak up when the country does something wrong. There's this little thing call The Constitution which was written for just that purpose.
