I'm just joining this thread so excuse me if this has been posted:

I heard on the radio that the President planned to introduce an Iraqi citizen who voted. This Iraqi is suppose to stand and wave his/her blue stained finger to the world.

Hope this is true. Can't wait to see it.

Can't say I saw it (and it was worth repeating if both of us missed it). Thanks for the heads-up.

Um, live events, like this or breaking news; speeches, stuff like that.

Man, that flag lapel pin is about as big as the Bible Bill used to carry around for the sake of the cameras.

Yes.

The "lockbox" thing that AlGore floated died on the vine.

It's past time to face reality on Socialist Security.

I hope Bush raises his own ink-stained index finger and then states that any senator who refuses to give their people an opportunity to save money with the private SS plan will be named in his next SOTU speech for all their constiuents to hear!

I found FR when the stress of the campaign was getting to me. These people made me feel so much better.

I hear ya. After listening to even ten minutes of MSM bias and swill, it's good to come here and get a dose of reality and pro-Americanism.

BobJ had a thread up about that: California...More Conservatives than Texas or Florida?. I think our left coast FRiends are a little sensitive about the subject. Well, the way I see the electoral county map, if we simply trip the major fault lines out west, New California will be nicely red.

I was floored to learn from John Kerry that Social Security is solvent. And Harry Reid said that it will be in "fine" shape for the next 50 years.

(We should really get that video and save it for later use.)

Reporting from fly-over country northern Minnesota.

President Bush will be in FARGO,ND tomorrow. Tickets to the event sold out in 90 minutes (faster than a rock concert)!!! People are peeved that he did not get a larger auditorum for more people.

Today on the local call-in show people were talking about getting some purple ink for their index finger!!! Big time media will be here tomorrow -- hopefully there will be PURPLE FINGERS galore raised in solidarity with IRAQ

Now THAT's fabulous!

Much better than Congress critters waving purple digits! And I hope it's a woman :)

Right, I just didn't know how frequent...I didn't want my inbox clogging up with pings every time President Bush gave a speech, since I'm on the road a lot.

But if it's just important stuff like this, you betcha, I'd like to be on the list. Thanks.

I found FR when the stress of the campaign was getting to me. These people made me feel so much better. Been here ever since.

The worst time I ever had on FR was the night of the first debate. The thread was inundated with trolls, newbies and naysayers. It was the most depressing thread I have ever read.

Just beware on threads dealing with major events like this. The DUers are known to infiltrate during these times.

Crazy Al.........Remember his arm-waving speech about "Everything UP is Down, and Everything Down is UP"?

And every "truth" they tell is a lie, and every "good" they promote is evil.

I really hope there isn't much attention brought to the ink stained finger. That symbolism for struggle of oppressed people that wish to be free belongs to the Iraqis. If too much is made out of it, it will become another "Mission Accomplished" or band-aid purple heart situation.

It really was. And we fought to keep it from breaking bad.

The sad part is that it was mostly FR members who hate Bush.
