I thought this was on next week....I'm not watching it, but let me know if Rather-biased asks Barnes about the fact that GWB was already in the Na. Guard when Barnes became Lt. Gov.

I'm mad as Zell too. After reading that Ben Barnes crap!

I just sent another donation to the Swiftees. At least they know how to hit back hard.

CBS should have to register as a Democrat 527.

I saw on some show while ago that Lloyd Benson's son, who is in Congress right now, and who Barnes also said that he got into the guard........well, the guy says it's not so, and that at that time, they NEEDED people in the Texas NG so no help was needed.

And isn't it convenient that the guy that supposedly arranged all this died three years ago? After Barnes gave testimony under oath that he didn't do this?

Email ONLY! Watching only improves their ratings, ratings only makes sponsors feel safe and willing to continue! Email ONLY! Think about it, every Conservative talk show host will have a trascript and audio sound bites for you tomorrow. I know it's hard not to look at the train wreck,.. but do it, walk right past it. Let it go, and stick to email. Just my thought.



Cheers!

See-BS Radio News was pushing this crap at the top of the hour. They said it will show that Bush was a poor pilot who skipped drills, avoided duty, and was dropped as a pilot for failing to meet his obligations.

I sent some money to the Swiftees today, too. I also sent an e-mail (just gets it off my chest, won't do any good)asking CBS some questions:Would they be bringing up that Bennie B is a Vice Chair for Kerry campaign; would they question him about his shady past; would they be interviewing any of the Swift boat veterans, and would they be requesting Kerry's military records.

I'm not holding my breath.

"I just sent another donation to the Swiftees. At least they know how to hit back hard. "

I got an email from the Swifties asking me to match my last donation. I'm retired, but opened up my billfold, and after the moths came flying out, reached in and took out one of my credit cards and dashed off another donation to them. It's all in the memory of my brother Bill, who served with Co. C, 4th Btn, 23rd Infantry (Mech.), 25th Infantry Division, Vietnam 1966-67. I'm fighting this bastard for him.

Outrage at actions bordering on treason, all's fair and game with charges that at worst would show Bush tried to stay out of Vietnam. This is what the left thinks is 'fair and balanced'.

Hell, 99% of the young men my age tried to leverage for best advantage with regard to Vietnam. If Bush Sr. got him in to this national guard, and I don't think he did, it wouldn't be a crime.

It is interesting to know that many of the U.S. prisoners of war in the North were pilots. I tend to doubt any national guard pilots served in Vietnam, but you never know where you might wind up should hostilities break out.

One thing that the Dems never mention is that it takes a fair amount of smarts to pilot jet aircraft. It's probably not that smart to keep mentioning that Bush was a fighter jet pilot, but then nobody accused the left of having a clue did they.

Brit's show today was excellent. Baring the lies of the day: Boston Globe, Kerry lies in his speech, Kitty Kelley AND Ben Barnes.

On Barnes they played the clip of him saying back when that "When I was Lt. Governor..." and then off they went exposing him as a liar.

Segment ended with Brit noting that Sixty Minutes has yet to cover the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth.

(same for the Today Show which is hosting the inelegant and skanky in the extreme Kitty Kelley next week for not one, not two, but three days)

The credit card had to come out for me as well. I thought it was well worth it just like you did.

Thank you for your service.

God Bless these brave men for standing their ground and not backing down.

I emailed CBS as well asking them similar questions.

Now I'm off to email my Dem Mom, (Bush is going to wreck Social Security), and my Dem sister, (Bush scares me, he's going to start a war), with the FACTS about this maggot.

I must be close to your age, and I know exactly what you're talking about!

And we both now that John Kerry got FOUR DEFERMENTS while he was in college, and asked for the FIFTH one, was turned down, and enlisted in the Naval RESERVE so he wouldn't be drafted into the Army!

Thanks for that update. I think I had read recently that Bentsen had said that...glad it's on tape...wonder if Sixty Minutes will show that part. I'm not going to watch it...It doesn't air here for hours anyway and I'll read about it here.

I'm retired, and money is not plentiful, but I am supporting the Swift Vets because they are honorable men who were besmirched by Kerry years ago and the story of how these men served admirably in Viet Nam deserve to be told.

Also, I'm thinking of what would happen if those children who were slaughtered were my grandchildren. President Bush cares about that as well, Kerry doesn't.
