So are we going to allow Jack Murtha to get away with such despicable behavior? We'll find out in November.

I would like to make a point using the old Superman movie, where he did fight for the American way and what is going on with the war today and the NY Times. In the first Movie with Christopher Reeves, lois lane interviews Superman and gives away the secret that he can't see through lead and Lex Luthor reads this in the paper and uses it to trap Superman, nearly killing him by encasing Kryptonie in a lead lined box.

"thought he'd win a Pulitzer."

A Pulitzer is chump change to these self-indulgent Ex-hippies. They're all in competition to see who is going to be the next Woodward and or Bernstein. Just think of it. Multimillion dollar book deals, absorbent-speaking fees, guest appearances on all the talk shows as the expert on “Presidential corruption” and all until you assume room temperature. No more hustling for a pitiful Pulitzer Prize, You and you alone are an icon.

Then there's crazy Uncle Jack. Jack Murtha, "the Congressman who can't",

Seems like Kevin McCullough has Murtha pegged and Murtha doesn't have a clue. People like him are dangerous to our Republic and he has to be ousted come November.

I believe the people of the 12th District will come to the same conclusion as they become aware of just how out of touch he is with reality.

Murtha sides up with Code Pink

Code Pink has given $650,000 to the terrorists in Fallujah, participated in war crimes tribunals against America and has called American soldiers "killers" on their website among many treasonous actions. They display signs like "Maimed for a Lie" at Walter Reed Army Medical Center where wounded troops are healing.
Text of Code Pink's statement on meeting Rep. Murtha:
Thank You Congressman Murtha! CODEPINK co-founder Gael Murphy and DC coordinator Allison Yorra met with Congressman Murtha to thank him for his courageous stand on Iraq. We presented him with our pink badge of courage and pink flowers sent by CODEPINK members nationwide.

Murtha's "Cut & Run" Comments on Iraq:

"there's no progress at all"

"it's worse than it was prewar"

"we should immediatley redeploy"

"War cannot be won on the ground"

"I have said it's a civil war"

"We cannot win this militarily. Our tactics themselves keep us from winning,"

Murtha's Comments on our Troops:

"Would you join (the military) today?," he was asked in an interview. "No," replied Murtha

"And I think you're saying the average guy out there who's considering recruitment is justified in saying 'I don't want to serve'," the interviewer continued. "Exactly right," said Murtha

"we have become a catalyst for violence" in Iraq

Marines "killed innocent civilians in cold blood." at Haditha

"I will not excuse murder, and this is what happened"

"This is worse than Abu Ghraib"

"Hopefully, this is an isolated incident. But we're supposed to be selling ideas of America, ideals of America, and we're losing that war."

"These kind of things have to be brought out immediately," he told "This Week," "because if the Marines got away with it, other Marines might think it's okay."

"What they're saying to me is we're stretching the military too thin. The army is broken, and we couldn't deploy to a second front if we wanted to."

"The troops don't know what to do. They don't have the direction they need in order to supervise the prisoners,"

Jack's in a safe Dem district but Steph might give him a fight. This idea that libs will get us all killed should be a national campaign ad for the RNC. It is true and should be taught to a public that still gets its news from the MSM.

I am concerned that America is trying to re-define itself along Canadian lines (trust me: that does *not* work!)

"Liberals" are the Canadian "Left" and are not to be trusted.

"Conservatives" are the Canadian "Left" and are equally not to be trusted. Remember Brian Mulroney? Anybody in Canada remember being called an "Enemy of Canada" by PM Kim Campbell (Canada's first unelected female PM) for daring to oppose the constitutional accord? You remember, the one that would have sold out Canada's birthright to all sorts of PC special interests, as well as doing the right thing by bringing Quebec into the Constitution?

You Yanks need to define yourselves in different terms...

What terms? I dunno, how about "Patriots" and "Traitors"?

Just received this via email:

The following story was written by Lori Kimble, a 31 year old teacher and Proud military wife. Mrs. Kimble, a California native, currently lives in Alabama..)

I was sitting alone in one of those loud, casual steak houses that you find all over the country. You know the type - a bucket of peanuts on every
table, shells littering the floor, and a bunch of Perky college kids racing around with long neck beers and sizzling platters.

Taking a sip of my iced tea, I studied the crowd over the rim of my glass.
My gaze lingered on a group enjoying their meal. They wore no uniform to
identify their branch of service, but they were definitely "military:" clean shaven, cropped haircut, and that "squared away" look that comes with pride.

Smiling sadly, I glanced across my table to the empty seat where my husband usually sat. It had only been a few months since we sat in this
very booth, talking about his upcoming deployment To the Middle East. That was when he made me promise to get a sitter for the kids, come back to this Restaurant once a month and treat myself to a nice steak. In turn he would treasure the thought of me being here, thinking about him until he returned home I fingered the little flag pin I constantly we worry and wondered where he was at this very moment. Was he safe and warm? Was his cold any better? Were my letters getting through to him? As I pondered these thoughts, high pitched female voices from the next booth broke into my thoughts.

"I don't know what Bush is thinking about. Invading Iraq. You'd think that man would learn from his old man's mistakes. Good lord. What an idiot! I can't believe he is even in office. You do know, He stole the election."
I cut into my steak and tried to ignore them, as they began an endless tirade running down our president. I thought about the last night I spent with my husband, as he prepared to deploy. He had just returned
From getting his smallpox and anthrax shots. The image of him standing in our kitchen packing his Gas mask still gives me chills.

Once again the women's voices invaded my thoughts. "It is all about oil, you know. Our soldiers will go in and rape and steal all the oil they can in the name of 'freedom'. Humph! I wonder how many innocent people They'll kill without giving it a thought? It's pure greed, you know."

My chest tightened as I stared at my wedding ring. I could still see how handsome my husband looked in his "mess dress" the day he slipped it on my finger. I wondered what he was wearing now. Probably his desert uniform, affectionately dubbed "coffee stains" with a heavy bulletproof vest over it.

"You know, we should just leave Iraq alone. I don't think they are hiding any weapons. In fact, I bet it's all a big act just to increase the president's popularity. That's all it is, padding the military Budget at the expense of our social security and education. And, you know what else? We're just asking for another 9-ll. I can't say when it happens again that we didn't deserve it."

Their words brought to mind the war protesters I had watched gathering outside our base. Did no one appreciate the sacrifice of brave men and women who leave their homes and family to ensure our freedom? Do they even know what "freedom" is? I glanced at the table where the young men were sitting, and saw their courageous faces change. They had stopped eating and looked at each other dejectedly, listening to the women talking.

"Well, I, for one, think it's just deplorable to invade Iraq, and I am certainly sick of our tax Dollars going to train professional baby killers we call a military."

Professional baby killers? I thought about what a wonderful father my husband is, and of how long it would be before he would see our children again.

That's it! Indignation rose up inside me. Normally reserved, pride in my husband gave me a brassy boldness I never realized I had. Tonight one voice will answer on behalf of our military, and let her pride in our troops be known.

Sliding out of my booth, I walked around to the adjoining booth and
placed my hands flat on their table. Lowering myself to eye level with them, smilingly said, "I couldn't help overhearing your conversation. You see, I'm sitting here trying to enjoy my dinner alone. And, do you know why? Because my husband, whom I love with all my heart, is halfway around the world defending your right to say rotten things about him." "Yes, you have the right to your opinion, and what you think is none of my business. However, what you say in public is something else, and I will not sit by and listen to you ridicule MY country, MY president, MY husband, and all the other fine American men and women who put their lives on the line, just so you can have the "freedom" to complain.
Freedom is an expensive commodity, ladies. Don't let your actions cheapen it."

I must have been louder that I meant to be, because the manager came
over to inquire if everything was all right. "Yes, thank you," I replied. Then, turning back to the women, I said, "Enjoy the rest of your meal."

As I returned to my booth applause broke out. I was embarrassed for making a scene, and went back to my half eaten steak. The women picked up their check and scurried away. After finishing my meal, and while waiting for my check, the manager returned with a huge apple cobbler ala mode. "Compliments of those soldiers, he said. He also smiled and said the ladies tried to pay for my dinner, but that another couple. who was a Veteran. wanted to take care of the wife of "one of our boys" had beaten them to it, so they left. With a lump in my throat, I gratefully turned to the soldiers and thanked them for the cobbler. Grinning from ear to ear, they came over and surrounded the booth. "We just wanted to thank you, ma'am. You know we can't get into confrontations with civilians, so we appreciate what you did."

As I drove home, for the first time since my husband's deployment, I
didn't feel quite so alone. My heart was filled with the warmth of the other diners who stopped by my table, to relate how they, too, were proud of my husband, and would keep him in their prayers. I knew their flags would fly a little higher the next day.

Perhaps they would look for more tangible ways to show their pride in our
country, and the military who protect her. And maybe, just maybe, the two women who were railing against our country, would pause for a minute to appreciate all the freedom America offers, and the price it pays to maintain it's freedom.

As for me, I have learned that one voice CAN make a difference. Maybe the next time protesters gather outside the gates of the base where I live, I will proudly stand on the opposite side with a sign of my own. It will simply say, "Thank You!" To those who fought for our Nation: Freedom has a flavor the protected will never know. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
