Spot on for Dr. Laura!

Hopefully she won't turn around and apologize for saying it though...

No intelligent, rational, reasonable, decent person is for war. No intelligent, rational, decent person is for war. But if my father and your fathers didn’t go off to fight World War II, I would have been incinerated in a German concentration camp oven. So I’m very grateful to the guys who didn’t believe in war, but fought it to protect the free world from vile evil. And that is exactly what’s going on now. Militant Islam is vile evil. Every day, they’re blowing up their own people for power. It’s inhuman. And you really believe we shouldn’t stop that?

My son is deployed and I won't apologize for sh*t and I don't expect her to either. By the way, where in TX?

North of Dallas, south of Oklahoma. ;-)

I just remember Dr. Laura apologizing to CAIR for some comments she'd made--wanna bet they're gonna go after her for this too as soon as they become aware of it?

She's also apologized to gays for alleged 'anti-homosexual' remarks she's made.

My point is I hope she sticks to her guns.

I have never understood pacifism. One would have to be incredibly naive to think that someone like Hitler could have been appeased away or that creating a Department of Peace will fill the world with hugs.

Dr. Laura for President

She would be the first president to have nude pictures of herself on the Internet.

I wouldn't vote for her for president--but she's spot on at trying to get folks to do the right thing for their children. I love her for that.

A really effective answer to a pacifist:

Pacifism works on every single case but one; when there are big brutes who don't like you or want what you have.

:-)

It was just a fun way of expressing that I liked what she had to say and that it would be nice to hear that perspective from presidential candidates.

Of course I don't want her for POTUS!

For President, I support Al Sharpton.

(JUST KIDDING AGAIN!!!)

I have never understood pacifism.

Back when there was a draft, it was a way to justify cowardice.

Now it's attention-seeking behavior.

Sort of like a kid who holds his breath until he turns blue.
