But this time, it makes me think back on other rumors in our past.

were true. It would seem that one of
the dangers of rumors is discounting them, over and over again.

second look and when they should be disregarded.
Fortunately for us, we have an even easier way of determining truth from

left saying that the only one's joining are these "18 year old
"poor" kids who have no other choice in life but to join." This
simply is NOT true. These are grown men who believe in our President and support
the war on terror. Danny and others have "requested" to go to

be told because these men are TRUE American heroes. They deserve the respect,
recognition, and honor.

If they lose the “poor, minority, immature young men” angle, it calls
into question all of their other fundamental beliefs.

American warriors’ commitment is not in question here, nor are his motives;

is their hatred so virulent, their choice of sides so consistently depraved?
You can click off their choice even before they make it.
If it’s the environment, they’ll cry for the tree and stump for the
fact-less fear-mongering of hippies and other losers.
If it’s war, they’ll lean so far toward the enemy that a mere sneeze
would put them across the line. If
it’s American Warriors, they’ll talk support in a frantic attempt to prove
that they aren’t the vile, contemptible bowel movements that good people know
them to be, but act saboteur when they think we aren’t looking.
If it’s illegals, they’ll distract you with the word
“immigration” while opening the door to condone all manner of crimes; an
absolute inevitability once we excuse those who have no problem breaking our
laws from day one. If it’s
