    OK, fair enough.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Agree with Bush or you are not only anti-American, you are a terrorist. So the fall back is just a repeat of their history.

    Australia has already sent troops to Iraq to help protect the Australian embassy, given the unfolding conflict in the country. Our Government has already evacuated some staff from our embassy and is encouraging all other Australians to leave while the airport in Baghdad remains open.

    It's only a very inarticulate way of saying he is absurdly inept at his position.... it takes kind and considered thought to properly interpret some statements. Oh yeah, "kind and considered", that's the definition of tolerance, is it not?

This doesn't mean I politically agreed with all of them or even some of them. I may have thought there were doing things dumb and stupid, but never in my mind has anyone of them done anything intentionally to harm the U.S., this includes our current president.

    I usually stay away from threads that bash former presidents and the current one only because they happened to be from the other party. I think this says a whole lot more about the posters than any president. The fact we are still here and that we can call any president all the names in the books simply means that each and every one has been successful in keeping this the land of the free.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Calling someone a "Kenyan" or a "Muslim" seems to be quite an insult. I never knew Kenyans or Muslims felt offended by this..
