    The "manure farm" has already been named after Bush........ it's called The Prairie Chapel Ranch ranch, and is in Crawford Texas.
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    I remember it was being thought of, but I don't know if it was ever approved and moved forward.

    John Murtha had more courage and honor than all those asshats attacking him. Especially that ding bat Mawlkin.

    Ya it takes a lot of courage and honor to falsely accuse murdering Iraqi civilians, "in cold blood," and then refusing to retract the statement after they were found innocent.

    They name ships as an honor to the person for whom it was named after. If such a naming is causing a partisan war then it's not worth the paint to put the name on the ship. The side issue is that should we name ships after political figures? I recall that there were people who were not happy with Reagan having a ship named after him.

    He willfully and knowingly aided the terrorists propaganda machine by airing unproven charges and concluding our marines were murders before seeing one shred of evidence.

    What he did was far worse than Hanoi Jane because he brought legitimacy to Islamic terrorist propaganda.
    I guess we will have agree to disagree. Jane was speading her evil during my war so I have the right to rant about her. You can have Murtha.

    The Marines covered the crime up. Immunity was offered to some. All of them lied to investigators obstructing the truth... kinda like Libby did. The last guy is awaiting his trial and it looks like he'll go down for all of 'em. Murtha was courageous to expose it for what it reflects: the military was, and is, over deployed putting huge amounts of stress on our troops. Discharged vets have a much higher amount of suicides and domestic violence than ever in history. Why do you think that is? The courageous thing to do is speak up to fix things. The cowardly thing to do is to stick your head in the sand as if nothing is wrong.

    What will ya'll say when the last guy is convicted?

    Murtha is a hero.
