July 3, 2003 -- HAVE you ever noticed that whenever you hear liberals talk about what's great about America, they often end the sentence by noting that America's greatness lies in the right of all citizens to criticize her? That's true, of course, but it's a little like saying intimacy is a good thing because it allows people to say really nasty things to each other.

It's because they are all dysfunctional. Only dysfunctional folks are abusive and constantly critical of that which they supposedly love.

Just more proof that Democrats are the party of the mentally ill.

It's like I've been saying for months now... Whenever the Left insisted that they "support our troops" while engaging in nothing but military-bashing.

No answer was ever forthcoming. It would have exposed their hypocrisy too plainly.
