    I have no idea what it is exactly that you are talking about. Can you be more specific?

    After 911, Dems had serious problems with their decades long hostility to the military and intel services. The Senate Dems asked for and got a second vote to send troops to battle. Then they backtracked and back stabbed our troops when they needed their assistance most. You do recall Bush 43 in office and the disgusting display of Democrats? Or is that part of your mind blank, now that we have 4 wars going?

    What exactly do you mean by "stab them in the back?" Last I checked, what the left wanted to do with the troops was bring them home.

    As evidenced by the daily anti-war parades across Americas college campuses, street corners...why...they are EVERYWHERE.

    The left wants the opposite of what any republican president stands for and stands by anything a democrat president wants...even if they are the exact same thing.

    Looks like you two bear out the study perfectly. People tend to put their time and evergy in to the things that matter to them. That includes packing up the family and going to a parade, or to a sports stadium or whatever. If this thread goes long enough, invariably, someone, probably liberal, will claim that going to a parade is nothing but an empty gesture and is actually unpatriotic.

    I actually wish liberals in general would figure out if they think patriotism is even a good thing. I've seen some suggest it's just an offshoot of evil nationalism which is just a hairs breadth away from racism. Seems like some liberals argue favorably for patriotism only when they're accused of being less patriotic than conservatives.

    Well said, and there's more, MUCH more, ow about debt ceiling and all that jazz??

    In honesty, republicans do it as well, just nowhere near as extreme.

    I hope Obama isn't going to pollute our environment up with fireworks.
