Talk To Me..Pretty Please?

The “lets-stick-our-weenie-in-every-campfire” liberals have now decided to overhaul, or to phrase it more appropriately for the leftists: “takeover”, the Army Field Manual’s interrogation guidelines. In short, the liberals think that the terrorists will “talk” if they lay like spoons with them after a cup of warm cocoa and a viewing of “Fried Green Tomatoes” with the appropriate lighting for the mood. This Swiss watch of an idea will certainly make America safer..

When the “allegations” start flying, the liberals love to spring into action. Desperate at this point to take ANY attention away from their intentional destruction of the economy and their “hope” of destroying health care, Obama is siccing Attorney general Eric Holder over the “alleged prisoner abuse under the Bush administration..” (“Obama Administration Urged to Consider Expanded Interrogation Methods” Fox News) I would prefer that Holder concentrate on the palpable abuse of the American capitalist system and the formerly free market by his boss and his minions..

Representative Pete Hoekstra said “For high-value detainees-it’s a joke.. in theory it sounds great..” This is therefore the perfect embodiment of why the liberals so childishly embraced communism. It too was “a joke.. in theory it sounds great”.. The liberal were just too dumb to see the “joke” that was being played out in places like the Gulag and with the Terror Famines upon the citizens of Russia.. What Pete WON’T say is that the leftists have taken the “or else” out of the equation so the interrogators will glean about as much truthful material from the terrorists as one could have gleaned from an Obama campaign tract in the fall of last year..

“The guidelines are psychological in nature.. good cop-bad cop, the silent treatment and a trick in which interrogators can pretend to be from another country..” The liberals feel that since their cheap psychological ploys have worked so well upon their indentured servants here in America, surely they will work on the uneducated savages that come from the world of terror.. A group that wants to “talk the terrorists to death” also wants to try the “silent treatment”.. If that doesn’t work, everyone gets to play “dress up” and to try to “trick” the terrorists just like the FBI did with Jack Murtha during ABSCAM..

These new “approved techniques” (no one said effective..) prohibit such heinous activities as waterboarding, electric shock, forced nudity, mock executions and other acts..” Now our intrepid interpreters will be using a “rapid fire sequence, repeat questions over and over, try to break the prisoner by focusing on his emotional anxieties or personal fears, change the environment in which the prisoner is being questioned and under very specific circumstances, keep a prisoner separated from others.. I just can’t help but to hearken back to March of 2009 and the quote from Dick Cheney, “He’s making some choices that in my mind will, in fact, raise the risk to the American people to another attack..” (CNN State of the Union)

Listen very carefully to the list.. “..repeat over and over..” (They are going to try to scare you about me.. he has a scary name.. I don’t look like the other Presidents..) “..focusing on emotional anxieties and personal fears..” (Global Warming!! The Impending Ice Age!! Mass starvation!! Genocide!! Pandemic!! Epidemic!!..) All that the liberals have done is photocopy the Democratic Party platform and re-title it the “Army Field interrogation manual”..

Charles Stimson, who worked on the 2006 revision of the Field Manual said “we will be constraining ourselves, inappropriately so, if we confined the CIA to the 19 in the Army Field Manual. Our enemy trains to our protocol, studies our protocol.. They will know how to resist.” Later he says that “lying” should be at the disposal of interrogators. It would only be appropriate that the same technique of “lying” that has been used so effectively by Obama should also be made readily available to those dealing with foreign terrorists. However, I can’t believe that the terrorists are more gullible than the liberal bottom feeders here in America..

Here we learn of the “we know all approach”. “Interrogators are allowed to ‘subtly’ convince a prisoner that they know what he or she knows. This can be complemented by the ‘file and dossier’ approach in which interrogators present a ‘file’ to a prisoner that appears to be much bigger than it really is, by being ‘padded with extra paper’ and other decorations..” Again the liberals are referring to their own polluted playbook for inspiration. The liberals have been operating under the “we know all approach” from time immemorial and they haven’t been doing it “subtly” either. Just ask them, they will tell you that they know everything..

Files “padded with extra paper” so that it is “much bigger than it really is”, full of “other decorations”? This was the election necessity for the empty dossiers of both Obama and Rodham during their ridiculous “shampaigns” of 2008. “Decorations”? Barack was loaded to the gills with Bolshevik bunting in order to convince the nation that a 143 day wonder WASN’T a danger to the nation.. He had so much totalitarian tinsel and grotesque garland on him he stood out like an artificial Christmas tree in July..

The “emotional pride approach is simply when the interrogator flatters the prisoner into cooperating by appealing to his ego..” The “Jethro Bodine Top Secret Double Naught Spy” code name for this “approach” is “the Obama”.. Just because this “approach” would easily sway an egomaniacal simp like Obama doesn’t mean that it would ever work on a knucklehead with a ticking turban, a “magnificent nineteen” backpack and the carcinogenic words of another evil Imam pulsing through his head..

Then we have the “silent approach”.. Here the interrogator says nothing to the source, but looks him squarely in the eye, preferably with a slight smile on his face..” After they have spent hour upon hour “grilling” the terrorist about what their favorite recipes might be, what their favorite musical is or what their favorite flower arrangement might be, they are going to go “silent” on them.. THIS will actually be the moment that the terrorist is waiting for.. What in the world do you have to be afraid of when the liberals want someone like Christopher Lowell to be “interrogating” you?

This will allow the “Obama administration to keep the moral high ground.” The “moral high ground” will be irrelevant if there are camels grazing on the White House lawn. The “moral high ground” may be another of those places where the liberals like to go to “feel good” when they illegally medicate themselves but as relates to the War on Terror, it is but another ACLU diversion and another imaginary piece of their puzzle of progressive perfection.. Whether it is effective or not is irrelevant, the liberals “feel good” about having done it, so all is well..

If the terrorists weren’t such a bunch of bumbling baboons they might notice the red carpet that the liberals Reds are lovingly laying before them..

  1. I wonder if Deputy Chief Inspector Brenda Johnson would approve of this nonsense?

  2. when I was a kid and got in trouble, my parents would make me stand in the corner.
    Now, some 40-odd years later, I can still describe, in detail, every nook and cranny of all 4 corners of our living room.
    However, “standing in the corner” is NOT in the Army Field Manual.
    If our soldiers capture an enemy combatant on the battlefield, take them back to an interrogation room, and make them “stand in the corner”, are they in violation of the Army Field Manual as regards to “cruel and inhuman” treatment of prisoners???

    FUCK THESE IDIOTS!

    STITCH!

  3. Larry,

    Thanks for the usual excellent wordsmithing. I am going to probably die sometimes in the next few years from laughing at these pathetic government leaders I didn’t vote for and/or from lack of sleep worrying about their ridiculous ideas becoming law of the land. All this is part of Obamayomama FUD. Maybe the health care bill or the stimulus bill would make an excellent dossier to lay on the table. Nah – to much BS.

  4. Keep ’em coming, Larry! Great article. It’s this kind of information the country needs to keep hearing. I’m optimistic that the silent majority is slowly but surely awakening and it’s about damn time.

  5. Oh, and Stitch, you crack me up. I always love hearing what you have to say, as well. This is one great family!

  6. Betty Bryant

    Hi Larry,

    I love your blog. I would like to say to everybody if you are as tired as I am of writing letters, e-mails and making calls to the brain dead idiots that run our government, do what I am going to do and go to Washington on Sept. 12 and march with other patriots. I hope there are thousands there but I will be there regardless. They need to see us and hear us. All the good people fighting this fight need to see each other. We need to meet and support each other through this battle. People are coming from all parts of the country. I live in Texas and I am flying in. Many other Texans are going also. I think this is important. We can beat ACORN and the union goons that will be there to harrass us. We will prevail.

  7. The worst terrorists in this country are the ones in our government. We need to get rid of them and rebuild our security.

    As far as the other terrorists are concerned, if we can’t interogate them for information unless we give them a lollipop first, why are we even taking prisoners?

  8. The only good terrorist is a dead terrorist.

  9. Here’s a surefire EIT: Threaten the terrorists with a night alone with Perez Hilton…& they’ll sing like canaries!…

  10. Margaret in CT

    Obviously, the liberal wusses think they can trick the terrorists, just as they tricked the electorate. How sweet it is to be a jihadist in the Obama years.

    And how sweet it will be to be a voter in 2010!

  11. Obama and many other leftist liberals are moral relativists. There is no real right or wrong for them, only effective or ineffective. Morality is relative and situational. If the ends justify the means, then do it. And, don’t kid yourselves, they are absolutely ruthless in applying such Marxist principles.

    So don’t let them fool you with their fake morality and false arguments of maintaining our nation’s moral high ground by not “torturing” terrorists, so we can once again be “respected” around the world.

    Besides, I would always like to be liked and respected, too. Everybody likes being popular. But the Muslim jihadists who want to kill us and destroy our way of life are never going to respect us, much less like us. They are fanatics and are therefore fanatical about achieving their goals. We, likewise, must be just as fanatical about protecting ourselves.

    So, given a choice between being respected by my enemies or being feared, I will pick being feared every time, thank you.

  12. And LadyWolf has it right about good terrorists being dead terrorists, too. That way, we don’t have to Mirandize them on the battlefield, we don’t have to house them with a personal prayer rug and a Koran in Gitmo, where they gain weight from the good food, and we don’t have to figure out where they should go when we subsequently release them without trial, without punishment, without justice.

    Just kill ’em where we find ’em and bury ’em where they fall — messy but simple, efficient and economical.

    I think it was Stonewall Jackson who said something like this about war: If you do decide to go to war, unsheath the sword and throw away the scabbard. Guess he meant war should be an all or nothing kind of thing — either do it, or don’t.

  13. Ladywolf

    What’s better than a dead terrorist, is a naked, waterboarded, dead terrorist, standing in the corner (that’s not in the Army Field Manual either).

    ROTFLMFAO!
    STITCH!

  14. Stitch,

    Maybe the prisoners could be used in a beneficial way – march them out in front of the troops as an EID detector . Then, if there is an explosi0n, it would allow them to do their ‘suicide’ thing and get their 40 virgins, or whatever . This way, everybody “wins”.

    I like your style – you don’t mince words, and you tell it like it is !!

  15. What a lift! I have really had many laughs this morning reading thanks to Stitch, LadyWolf, JJ and others! Loved the article, Larry. And LadyWolf, you are 100% correct that the worst terrorists are in the government. Glenn Beck says he is kept awake at night fearing Obama is going to do something drastic, like a coup or some other anti-American act. We must all be vigilant and keep our powder dry!

    Larry, the first one you sent an article to was too scared of the true words and wanted to cover your light in the dark, so I hope your next chance is willing to print the cold, hard facts you espouse. Castroturf! LMAO!

  16. I too enjoyed the writings of Larry, Lady Wolf, Stitch and JJ – I think JJ’s idea of EID detector is excellent!

  17. I got email today that I want to pass on to you and hope that you will do the same. A wise voter examines the evidence and will vote accordingly once educated by the “true” facts.

    Hello All,

    By now you have probably heard that President Obama came to Montana last Friday. However, there are many things that the major news has not covered. I feel that since Bill and I live here and we were at the airport on Friday I should share some facts with you. Whatever you decide to do with the information is up to you.

    On Wednesday, August 5th it was announced locally that the President would be coming here. There are many groups here that are against his healthcare and huge spending so those groups began talking and deciding on what they were going to do. The White House would not release ANY details other than the date.

    On about Tuesday Bill found out that they would be holding the “Town Hall” at the airport. (This is only because Bill knows EVERYONE at the airport) Our airport is actually located outside of Belgrade (tiny town) in a very remote location. Nothing is around there. They chose to use a hangar that is the most remotely located hangar. You could not pick a more remote location, and you cannot get to it easily. It is totally secluded from the public.
    FYI: We have many areas in Belgrade and Bozeman which could have held a large amount of folks with sufficient parking. (gymnasiums/auditoriums). All of which have chairs and tables, and would not have to be SHIPPED IN!! $$$$$
    During the week, cargo by the TONS was being shipped in constantly. Airport employees could not believe how it just kept coming. Though it was our President coming several expressed how excessive it was, especially during a recession. $$$$$

    Late Tuesday/early Wednesday the 12th, they said that tickets would be handed out on Thursday 9am at two locations and the president would be arriving around 12:30 Friday.

    Thursday morning about 600 tickets were passed out. However, 1500 were printed at a Local printing shop per White House request. Hmmmm……900 tickets just DISAPPEARED.
    This same morning someone called into the radio from the local UPS branch and said that THOUSANDS of Dollars of Lobster were shipped in for Obama. Montana has some of the best beef in the nation!!! And it would have been really wonderful to help out the local economy. Anyone heard of the Recession?? Just think…with all of the traveling the White House is doing. $$$$$ One can only imagine what else we are paying for.

    On Friday Bill and I got out to the airport about 10:45am. The groups that wanted to protest Obama’s spending and healthcare had gotten a permit to protest and that area was roped off. But that was not to be. A large bus carrying SEIU (Service Employees International Union) members drove up onto the area (illegal)and unloaded right there. It was quite a commotion and there were specifically 2 SEIU men trying to make trouble and start a fight. Police did get involved and arrested the one man but they said they did not have the manpower to remove the SEIU crowd.
    The SEIU crowd was very organized and young. About 99% were under the age of 30 and they were not locals! They had bullhorns and PROFESSIONALLY made signs. Some even wore preprinted T-shirts. Oh, and Planned Parenthood folks were with them…..professing abortion rights with their T-shirts and preprinted signs. (BTW, all these folks did have a permit to protest in ANOTHER area)

    Those against healthcare/spending moved away from the SEIU crowd to avoid confrontation. They were orderly and respectful. Even though SEIU kept coming over and walking through, continuing to be very intimidating and aggressive at the direction of the one SEIU man.

    So we had Montana folks from ALL OVER the state with their homemade signs and their DOGS with homemade signs. We had cowboys, nurses, doctors you name it. There was even a guy from Texas who had been driving through. He found out about the occasion, went to the store, made a sign, and came to protest.

    If you are wondering about the press…..Well, all of the major networks were over by that remote hangar I mentioned. They were conveniently parked on the other side of the buildings FAR away. None of these crowds were even visible to them. I have my doubts that they knew anything about the crowds.
    We did have some local news media around us from this state and Idaho. Speaking of the local media…they were invited. However, all questions were to be turned into the White House in advance of the event. Wouldn’t want anyone to have to think off the top of their head.

    It was very obvious that it was meant to be totally controlled by the White House. Everything was orchestrated down to the last detail to make it appear that Montana is just crazy for Obama and government healthcare. Even those people that talked about their insurance woes……..the White House called our local HRDC (Human Resource and Development Committee) and asked for names. Then the White House asked those folks to come. Smoke and mirrors…EVERYTHING was staged!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am very dismayed about what I learned about our current White House. The amount of control and manipulation was unbelievable. I felt I was not living in the United States of America, more like the USSR!! I was physically nauseous. Bill and I have been around when Presidents or Heads of State visit. It has NEVER been like this. I am truly very frightened for our country. America needs your prayers and your voices. If you care about our country please get involved. Know the issues. And let Congress hear your voices again and again!! If they are willing to put forth so much effort to BULLY a small town one can only imagine what is going on in Washington DC. Scary!!

    I have always said obama’s allegiances were with his most ardent and biggest financial supporters, Al Qaeda et al.

    Instead of sending the terrorists worth questioning to a luxury suite at the White House, we should let our allies in Israel or Saudi Arabia handle the interrogation.
    As for those of no intelligence value, I agree that they should be used as roadside bomb and EID detectors.

    One other tactic would be to shoot all of the captured terrorists with bullets dipped in pig’s blood, before their eyes, except one who is sent back to tell the others about this. It worked very well for “Black Jack” Pershing in World War I.

  19. beyond disgusted

    Must agree with LadyWolf. If we are now reduced to wussifying terrorists prisoners, then it is time to take no more prisoners.

  20. Larry, Great article, once again… I am in complete agreement with your assessment of their methods…

    Lady Wolf… I couldn’t have said it better my self! NO MORE PRISONERS!!! Sorry Sir, it looked to me like he was still shooting and I couldn’t let him endanger my team!

    Eileen, Thanks for sharing the letter from Montana. I am originally from there, and was very confused at the impressions that came from that town hall. My mom said it was in Belgrade, and I thought she just got it wrong, she’s 72 and has begun to get a little confused… and then I saw an article about it being in Bozeman, and wondered why they would have it in a small to medium sized college town. The letter explains it all. He is trying to marginalize a very self-sufficient and proud state. Probably because the governor, although a Democrat, is pro-gun rights and pretty fiscally conservative. You know, Montana was the first state to pass that “State’s Rights” bill. Basically telling Fedzilla to take their weenies to someone else’s campfire unless the US Consititution specifically says they have that right…

    That is a mistake. We native Montanan’s will not take kindly to being made to look stupid, and we do not put up with foolishness for long. I think that Senator Max Baucus (L,MT)will have a hard time getting re-elected… he’s been in the Senate since 1976 or thereabouts.

  21. actually, that is what one soldier told a talkshow host, but the host just didnt understand.
    When asked about what effect this “law” had on the battlefield, the soldier replied, “well, we just dont take any more prisoners”.
    The host replied that that was not good, we need to take prisoners to get information.
    The soldier tried to explain it in such a way that you had to read between the lines, but the host still didnt get it.
    The point the soldier was making was, there ARE “combatants” who would NORMALLY be taken prisoner, but they’re not.
    BUT, they’re not being released either.
    They just get DEAD.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    STITCH!

  22. Warning to all. A new Trojan virus is spreading very fast on the internet. Its intent is to slow your machine down to where you will need to shut down. Nevertheless, once you shut down, that is when the damage to your files and hard drive, occur. I was, once again a victim of these cyber terrorist. My hard drive crash, all files, every single file, program, music, images, video, all my website stuff and writings are all gone. Update your anti-virus programs and monitor your anti-spyware programs. Back up your files. I installed my CD burner program to back up my work and right in the middle that is when the crash occurred. The computer person never told me the Trojan name, but be caution when going to an unknown website that you not trust. What happened was my computer got into a sort of loop. I could get on, but once I clicked on any I was advised to shut down and reboot. It got into that continuous loop repeatedly. He said that each time I shutdown and reboot only made things worse. Watch out and be careful.

    I will be off line for a few days reinstalling all my programs and retrieving images for my website will have to be downloaded again.

  23. As usual, NoLeftTurnz, a very good article. No surprise to those of us who have been paying attention that the Obamination Administration is making it easy for the enemies of America and harder for Americans. He will do everything he can to destroy us because he hates America with a purple passion. If his actions do not prove that, then they prove nothing. Someday people will look back on his administration, slap their foreheads and say, “Boy, were we duped!”

    Shameless plug: check out my homepage by clicking on my initials above. You’ll like what you see and hear if you scroll down a little. This administration won’t like it, but you may.

  24. I just read something online that I read and located another to confirm the story. It appears that the deal to release the Lockerbie killer was brokered during the last Summit that both Gordon Brown and Barack Obama attended. Which puts a different spin to the story the press is releasing? Both Brown and Obama had to ok the exchange, released a well-known terrorist for an oil deal between the UK and Libya. So if these two government officials care more about oil, then human life then so be it, but it will be the last executive order they will be allowed to do; both claim to be outraged about the deal..

    If this was a movie most attendances would say it was far-fetched, but not this Administration. The far-fetched ideas become a reality. I’m going to contact Glenn Beck to see if he can research it better with the tools and staff who have access to information I don’t have, like LexisNexis and other similar websites. Lexis is a searchable, and identically named archive of content from newspapers, magazines, legal documents and other printed sources. They hold the largest database of information in the World which holds things like public records, unpublished opinions, forms, legal, news, and business information, and targets its products to a wide range of professionals in the legal, risk management, corporate, government, law enforcement, accounting and academic markets. Typical customers of LexisNexis include lawyers, law students, journalists, and academics. I learned about them in college and we were given access to it in their library.

    Fox has access to all of these websites such as American Jurisprudence, American Law Reports, Federal Reporter, Findlaw and Public Records.

    One other thing that I’ve been thinking about is have someone in the media file a request with the Freedom of Information Act and demand Obama produce his papers. Could someone say that the documents that he has never shown are now part of the government achieve as proof of eligibility. I brought the WND DVD A Question of Eligibility, it was an excellent and eye opening documentary. I recommend anyone interested should purchase it.

  25. Eileen,

    Didn’t the left accuse Bush of “fighting a war for oil?”

    But it is OK to release a mass murderer for oil..

    Didn’t the left demand “justice” for “outing” the self-outed Valerie Plame but now they want to prosecute actual WORKING agents over made up abuse charges?

    “Transparency” takes on a whole new light with the liberals..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  26. Eileen:

    I’ve been telling people that the Brits made a deal and pressured the Scots into releasing that mass murderer. I figured it was about oil. It all comes out in the wash eventually.

  27. Larry:

    When it comes to liberals and “transparency”,
    everything is as clear as mud.

  28. I do believe a majority of the public know what went down right about now. They have started questioning Obama and what he is doing to this Country. All those independence voters that voted for him are just about now regretting the choice they made. We were in Wal-mart today and as we were waiting online the person behind us was commenting about the fact that as of today, in the past 8 months every imitative has failed he has tried to do has failed. He started listing the things. Stimulus package that he claimed would reduce unemployment and has not stimulated our Economy. He has failed at everything he has tried, unless of course he wanted this to happen.

    He fired the GM CEO stating a fresh face at the head of the car marker would breathe some fresh ideas. He owns a car dealership here. He carries Ford, Toyota, Hyundai and Mazda. However, his competitors who join the GM and Chrysler are regretting that decision. He has heard that the 10-day wait for their reimbursement will probably end up to 30 or 40 days. They are rejecting most applications for missing a comma and misspelled words to what he believes is away so the Government won’t have to pay. One dealership doubled down by offering a match for every car traded. That means he has to eat $9,000 for each transaction until the government becomes organized (which is highly unlikely at this stage) and reimburses them. For a small dealership, that’s a lot of money. He went on and on about these ill-conceived plans created by idiots in the federal government who live their lives where they separate themselves from the rest of the American public and society. They believe they are special and deserving.

    The people at the townhall meetings are very angry, frustrated and fed up. They want limited government controls, freedom of choice and capitalism all the things this Country was founded on. Life in the South is all about God, Love of Country, Freedom and family. It’s been that way for centuries, doesn’t matter who was Governor or President, whether you were Republican, Conservative, Democrat or Liberal they all lived this way and whatever candidate share their world view would be the recipient of their backing. He said he was a Democrat all his life and he is now humiliated and ashamed that he brought the bullshiter last November. He hated Hillary just the look on his face made me laugh as if a hundred year old cheese, with enough mold to start a new disease. He knew what John McCain was about but his chose of Vice President left little to be desired, but in the 8 months since the coronation Sarah has grown on him. He has also started to watch FoxNews even after his kids said don’t, but he did and actually believes they are the closest to the truth as we are going to get from the press and media. He kept listening to friends who never watched it but told him that they were bad.

    He sees the destruction that the Democratic leadership, who once stood for the little man, they represented the blue-collar workers (but not union organizers) and have replaced it with wealthy whores who don’t pay their own taxes but expect us too. He was very passionate about what is going on in the US right now. After he was done speaking, some people clapped. Democrats are now turning against him as well as a large percentage of independents.

    Obama has never had to face his adversary before; most were challenged on technical reasons. He said it was more about the image that came through as a confident man; he could be all things to all people. If you believe in me, I will believe in you. He now sees it as cockiness and arrogance an elitist who believes he should get whatever he wants. He was an interesting guy and should I need a tune up for my Santa Fe I will probably will go to him.

  29. Eileen:

    Would it surprise you to know that I have a Santa Fe too. We have another thing in common.

  30. check out this guy’s speech!
    Its kinda long (9 parts!), but he nails every issue on “health Scare”.

    Rat

  31. LadyWolf!
    Oh my, that last statement says it all!
    Obama IS as “clear as mud” !!!

    HAHAHAHAHAHA

    STITCH!

  32. I love mine but don’t use it much here because of the traffic and having a stop light every 1000 feet. But when we lived in NJ I got great millage around 30. We lived close to the interstate 78. Mine is 2001 and the federal blue color (which they don’t make anymore.)

  33. Oh Larry,

    They did, didn’t they show it just hypocrisy from those brain-dead liberals. There are plenty of them on that list of hypocrites, what ever happened to the protestors against the War in Iraq and Afghanistan. Did they suddenly believe that war in the hands of liberals is more satisfactory to them than one from a conservative or moderate? Where’s Cindy Sheehan who spent a great deal of time picketing the Bush ranch in Texas? Wouldn’t you think that she be doing the same to Barack Obama who appears to be expanding and enhancing the war in Afghanistan?

    Her son is still dead and the war is still active. I never understood her anger, her son Casey Sheehan re-enlisted, knowing that his unit would be sent to Iraq. Casey Sheehan was killed in action after volunteering to be part of a Quick Reaction Force to rescue American troops. He served his Country so that we can live in a Free Country, but I don’t understand her reaction to blame a President for the War and Congress approved. He enlisted in the Army in 2000 and his service ended in 2004 and he chose to re-enlist, no one forced him to do it. I can assume that he felt pride in defending our Country. He’s death is sad and I would wish that he gotten a different ending and return home walking off the plane instead of in a body bag.

    However, his mother finally provided a tombstone at his grave following criticism that Casey, who died in 2004, lacked one. Cindy Sheehan maintains that the U.S. “government should have paid for it because of its responsibility for his death.” The Department of Veterans Affairs does provide such monuments upon request. Is his mother just another liberal pinhead who blames everyone for a bad outcome? I guess you can make the call. I just wonder had Casey been on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center, Pentagon, field in PA or one of the people who died working in both buildings what would have been her reaction?

  34. Does anyone know how to get a proposition or resolution added on an election ballot? I would love to start a movement that the public can vote on Term Limits for all in Congress. I think we all can assume that Congress would never create a Bill that would limit their power and livelihood. So I think the only option would be for the public to vote on it federally through something added on the Ballot. Can it be done nationally or only by per State? I’m looking but cannot find anything on the internet.

  35. Eileen:

    I have a 2005 and it’s Moonlit Blue. It’s really great in the winter because I live on a hill and my driveway is steep.

  36. Eileen:

    The abolition or modification of term limits for certain elected offices requires voter approval and a resolution by the local legislative body, followed by a voter referendum.

    When my town, stupidly, increased the term for the town supervisor they started with a petition. The petition asked the town board to draft a resolution for a voter referendum to decide the issue. The petition required the signatures of a certain percentage of the registered voters in the town. The board of elections provided the percentage. Based on my past experiences with petitions, however, you have to watch the board of elections as they don’t always give you the correct numbers. That’s typical of New York state

  37. Is anyone surprised that “Obama” turned out to be anything but what he was on “day one?”
    The only difference now….those who weren’t paying attention…are now.

  38. 9/12 March or bust!
    See you there.

  39. Thanks LadyWolf,

    At least I know where to start. There was nothing on the internet, I spent a whole day looking and came up with nothing.

    Do you know if it will pass Supreme Court muster and is allowed under the rules of law and the Constitution? I would hate to do all the work and be told sorry, no you cannot do it. Which is my fear.

  40. Eileen:

    It looks like you can’t use a referendum on the federal level. Here are three links on the subject:

    This is a link to the list of states with referendums in their Constitutions.

    I’m not sure what is going on yet but there seems to be a lot of activity regarding convening a Constitutional Convention. I don’t know if the activity is confined to the NY State Constitution or the United States Constitution. I’m going to speak to a friend who is a expert on the subject If anyone knows what is going on, he will

  41. Again, thank you for the information. I honestly never thought it covered federal. It would have to be brought up state by state and be included in every state Constitutional Amendment.

    We really don’t need a referendum if the public agrees to vote federal Congress out of office every two years. Nevertheless, with organizations like ACORN, SEIU and other Unions members the likelihood they would vote against the party that acknowledges their existence and promises all the free goodies at everyone else’s expense. There are only 12 million identified liberal Democrats in this Country, they are the minority. There are about 35 million Independent and 55 conservative/moderate Republicans. Based on those numbers there were some conservative/moderates that voted for this slimy creep for President. Had the 35% of the voters that were eligible to vote but chose to stay home and allowed them to take control will probably be coming to a the next election.

  42. To those who are curious of what is listed in our states Constitution.
