Are they Really Serious?

I have yet to post anything on the 'Cindy Sheehan' situation. Frankly I have to say I think the situation is a little blown out of proportion. She is a single mother with an issue that she would like to hear the President address. But the far left has turned her in to some kind of hero of the anti-war movement, and the far right and neo-cons have turned in to one of the greatest enemies of the US.

"The terrorists that are watching Cindy Sheehan's protest believe that this is something that might topple the current administration." Howard Kaloogian said. "And I have a question that I want the media to begin asking Cindy Sheehan: How many more American soldiers are going to die because you are giving hope and encouragement to our enemies?"

My first response to this is to simply laugh. On the face of the statement it just sounds ridiculus. The more I thought about this after I first heard it the more angry I became. This was coupled with another speaker with this same group saying something to the effect of "Who does she think she is to question the President? To demand that he speak with her."

So I now feel force by the stupidity of others to directly address this. First, Howard (you dumb-ass), the terrorists are not watching Ms. Sheehan. Second, if the terrorists thing it is going to 'topple the current administration' they are sadly mistaken, as this country doesn't work that way, and if this administration gets 'toppled' it will be through it's own ineptitude and nothing Ms. Sheehan does. And finally, Howard, no additional soldiers are being put in harms way by Ms. Sheehan, she doesn't have the power over the soldiers to do that. Only the President does.

Now before I address the second statement I have one additional thing to say to Howard Dumb-ass, and that is grow-up, read the constitution, understand the concept of Freedom of Speech as it applies to anyone else but YOU. Then get the F*** off your high horse.

Now as to the second speaker who asked the question "who does she think she is to demand the President speak with her?" Ah, the fun of the stupid question? The answer my friend is two fold. First, she is a citizen of the United States who is a taxpayer, in other words SHE IS ONE OF THE PRESIDENTS BOSSES, if he responds to one person he should respond to them all, but frankly he doesn't seem to be able to talk to anyone who is in lock step with him. The second part of the answer, she lost her son due to one of the Presidents policy, he apparently had the time to make political speeches while on vacation, he had time to have a 'photo op' bicycle ride with Lance Armstrong. He could make 10 minutes to talk to her, after all she went there to see him at her expense. What Jr. has succeeded in doing in this situation taking a minor story and making it a front page everyday story. Like many things with this President, he seems to believe if he ignores it long enough it will go away.
