I look at my kids sleeping sometimes and wonder just what in the hell I've done. We live this nice, safe, sheltered life and sometimes I am SO afraid of what the future holds for them.
HOW CAN THEY DO THIS? How can you POSSIBLY pass a Senate resolution over something like this? Criticize and the Senate comes after you? Can anyone say, "My Lai"?
My entire childhood, through high school, we watched the bodies come home, on the news at night. The flag-draped coffins were loaded off the planes, with appropriate accompanying honors. Did you know that the government today WON'T LET YOU SEE THAT? He says it's "demoralizing". Well, no, it's not. It's keeping the war real and close to home as opposed to turning it into some abstract duel on foreign soil that's not ever REALLY going to touch us.
And the Bush coffers just keep on swelling.
