It would be fun to be a mod over at DU today, just to see how many poor schlubs like this guy got banned for posting comments like this.

Maybe shrewed and calculating on Hillary's side and maybe pure politics but don't discount the message -- she was over there with the troops, standing with her country. Dean was somewhere telling people how much George sucks and how we're wrong to be in Iraq and how it's George's fault all those terrorists are in Iraq now killing our troops (ignoring the fact that those terrorists are in Iraq and not new Hampshire and that the casualties are not exactly one sided).

Like or dislike her politics she was standing with our troops and country and that's a rather refreshing change from the left, which recently seems to have come to the consensus that we should be in the business of figuring out how to appease the radical Arabs.

Watch out for the democrats that support the troops and the war, they're the ones you have to worry about in the next election.

Re that photo in post no.29...

I wish I was related to that soldier (white guy with the shaved head sitting next to Hillary) --- he made me feel so proud of America. What a stand-up guy. I'd give him a big hug.

First he's talking with the guys, looks like he said a prayer before eating, starts eating, chats again with the guys AND NEVER ever looks at old Hil nor acknowledges she is there (at least in the file film I saw).

If the film clip got it got it right and I have the story correct --- yes sir you're one heck of a guy.

Thanks to all of you who are protecting us this Thanksgiving day.

As a Clemson fan, I am struck by how much DU.com sounds just like USC Gamecocks fans this week after we demolished them 63-17. They are all searching through a big bucket of S$%^ for pearls.

You had to dig deep for that one? I couldn't get past the first post on the first link. Afraid I might kick my dog if I continued reading.

Gushing over Hillary or bashing President Bush. There's little in between.

She may, in fact, have a heart and care for our troops. We can hope.

What may be happening is; that those in the know have decided that nothing is to be gained by attacking George Bush, but much could come by 'propping' oneself up- stars and stripes being the popular gift wrap of the day.

Happy Holidays, for instance. Surprise! Lizzard on the table.

From Paul Johnson's Modern Times - 'The Devils':

"The attempt by Western intellectuals to defend Stalinism involved them in a process of self-corruption which transferred to them, and so to their countries, which their writings helped to shape, some of the moral decay inherent in totalitarianism itself, especially in denial of individual responsibility for good or ill. Lionel Trilling (himself a Leftist - noum) shrewdly observed of the Stalinists of the West that they repudiated politics, or at least the politics of 'vigilance and effort':"

In an imposed monolithic government they saw the promise of rest from the particular acts of will which are needed to meet the many, often clashing requirements of democratic society... they cherished the idea of revolution as the final, all-embracing act of will which would forever end the exertions of our individual wills.

"For America, the development was particularly serious because the Stalinists then formed the salient part of the new radical movement; and as Trilling also noted:"

In any view of the American cultural situation, the importance of the radical movement of the Thirties cannot be overestimated. It may be said to have created the American intellectual class as we now know it in its great size and influence. It fixed the character of this class as being, through all mutations of opinion, predominately of the Left.

"This was the class which shaped the thinking of the liberal-Democratic political establishment, which was to hold power in the most powerful nation on Earth until virtually the end of the 1970s."

Breathtaking, isn't it?

Yeah, I got their message crystal clear. Only a fool would fall for the Hildabeast photo op, or ever feel safe with the Democraps at the helm. I'll never forget how they tried to trash the military vote in 2000. Have you?

It is amazing to compare and contrast the postings on DU with those on FR... not for political content, that's a given, but rather for clarity of thought, coherency, LOGIC, and even sanity.

The level of intellectual discourse that occurs on FreeRepublic is miles above the childish ranting one observes on Democratic Underground.

I see denial, sloganeering, and me-tooism running rampant. Insults and slurs on the integrity and honesty of the opposition run rampant without any basis in the facts.

One of the others things I noticed is that most of the posts on DU are very short... or just an opportunity to post an animated GIF.

Obviously the du-mies have no clue who the nazi's were. They were leftist socialists and regressives. Just like the modern democrat party.

I glanced quickly at what those jokers were saying a few hours ago, and boy were they angry. One idiot wrote that CNN (of all networks) has been kissing GWB's posterior all day with it's non-stop coverage and pro-Bush bias. ...lol.

I did my own comparison between FOX and CNN earlier in the day, and the latter had only about 5 minutes of the trip's coverage in one hour. FOX, otoh, was on it for the whole hour.

Gad! Wonder if the Secret Service ever looks in on these nitwits? If not, they should.

I don't believe for ONE SECOND that Hillary cares for our troops. If that were true then why would she:

- Allow the military budget to be cut to far that some inlisted personel were on welfare and using food stamps?!

- Use the Marines in the White House as servers at parties?!

These two things alone demonstrate that she has an inherent disrespect and I dare say hatred for the military and our troops.

'F' HER!!!

From the archives, almost 2 years old --

MIDI - CAMELOT

There is a site for looney lefty losers
A place where they commiserate and cry
It's kind of like their own insane asylum
We all know why

They think that Scumbag Clinton was a hero
Their heads they keep right up their you know where
They still count chads that they say they've discovered
They think we care

Underground…underground…it's the place they like to play
The RAT Underground…underground…it's there they hide away

Each one of them's a freak who is unbalanced
No medication works that they've yet found
You know it in your guts…that every RAT is nuts
They do not dare appear in public…they stay underground

Underground…underground…it's the place they like to play
The RAT Underground…underground…it's there they hide away

We do not think that they'll come to their senses
Without a brain it's hard to be profound
You know it in your guts…that every RAT is nuts
They do not dare appear in public…they stay underground

Funny stuff on the first poll -- "They would masturbate but it's so small they can't find it"

That is truly ironic considering their guy is the one who would finish himself off in the sink when he was with Monica, and who would play with himself late at night with her on the other end of an unsecure line. He will forever be the Sinkmaster.

More from the archives --

MIDI - TEDDY BEARS PICNIC

They hide deep down in their Underground…and spend their whole day Bush hating
To them it's really an ugly day…Iraqis are celebrating
Today's the day they hoped wouldn't come
Defeated by a guy who's so dumb
Today's the day the Underground's suicidal

Some were hoping our troops would die…for Bush it would go quite badly
But as the statue came tumbling down…they sat at their keyboards sadly
Today's the day they hoped wouldn't come
Defeated by a guy who's so dumb
Today's the day the Underground's suicidal

It is really so wonderful…as a group they were spreading bull
They had lived in a dream, a dream, that someone was soon to impeach
They are worthless as they can be…they are scum for the world to see
We'll be feeding them crow, tasty crow…though they'd rather be having quiche

In denial they're really stuck…they do not know how much they suck
They are always so wrong, so wrong…a lesson George Bush would soon teach
They are worthless as they can be…they are scum for the world to see
We'll be feeding them crow, tasty crow…though they'd rather be having quiche

They're hoping Baghbad Bob has bad news…because they believed his prattle
They don't know it is two thousand three…they still fight the Florida battle
Today's the day they hoped wouldn't come
Defeated by a guy who's so dumb
Today's the day the Underground's suicidal

On their moustache is a curse
They're in a state of shock…I'll be very pleased to call a hearse
Their whole world view is screwed
It's been turned upside down, oh, can it be renewed?
What will they be doing next…it seems their hopes are dashed and they have lost everything
I guess Will Pitt will get on the cell phone and call up Scottie boy
And say "Let's meet at the Burger King"

The level of intellectual discourse that occurs on FreeRepublic is miles above the childish ranting one observes on Democratic Underground.

I just visited DU, and I second your estimation of their level of discourse, if it can be called discourse. Perhaps 'course' alone would be a better descriptive.

Two thoughts: It's a well-accepted fact that one's ability to write (and think!) cogently, fluently and presuasively is influenced by what one reads, more than any other factor. So what in the world have these lefty whiners been reading???

Secondly, their clunky, Yahoo-like bulletin board messages seem like 19th century technology campared to the FR format, which allows for a running dialog and can be viewed and read much like a newspaper. I love FR, but I probably wouldn't be a poster or frequent visitor if JR used that outmoded system. It's a laugh. I wonder why only FR, of all the blogs I've visited, has this attractive advantage.
