I SUPPORT ALL WHO GIVE US OUR FREEDOM!
WAR IS NOT GOOD BUT FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!

I WILL BOYCOTT ALL WHO DO NOT SUPPORT, WITHOUT FREEDOM WE WOULD NOT HAVE ALL THAT WE DO!
IF YOU DONT SUPPORT YOUR COUNTRYMEN GO LIVE SOMEWHERE ELSE AND SEE WHAT IT IS LIKE.

As a disabled (20%) vet I definetly support the attack. We NEED to get the weapons out of those crazy hands. I used to know the stats for biological weapons but I can tell you, it doesn't take that much to make say... all the people in Atlanta ill. Let some protesters block a street in my town... there would be hell to pay and I'd likely be in jail. Anyhow... as Americans we HAVE to support this venture!!

Hey Hoss,
As a disabled Vet, how do you think you are supported at the Vet Hospitals? Have trouble getting appointments?

I am a veteran of the first Gulf War. When in college, I did a little part time work at the Spokane, Washington Vet's Hospital, and it seemed like people needing appointments had to wait months. If we expect people to go to war, we got to support them when they get back.

It's aweful!! About 3 months at the clinic here and you don't even see a Dr., a PA... which is fine. I am not sure how long it will take to get into the VAMC in Boise. They don't pay providers very much in the VA medical system, therefore people work for the VA for either experience or for the time off and benefits.

FTD,

When you're in Boise, bring the bike and we'll go out for a few hours.

In addition to Daytripper63's comments:
I am boycotting movies and shows that liberal, loud mouth actors/actresses are in. Hollywood needs to keep their trap's shut and not assume that just because they are famous, America gives a crap about their pin head political beliefs.

Bryan in Denver...

Anybody else here the story about Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins after the Oscars? After their little Peace display on stage, Tim ran into a reporter back stage who had written a less than flattering story about some of their family members. I guess Peaceful Tim took offense at the comments and grabbed the reporter and threatened him with bodily harm. A little hypocritical, No? I used to like Tim and Susan. Oh well, just more money I'll save in movie tickets.

Stop by and sign. We must let them know they are hypocrits. If nothing else it's very humorous.

I can't tell you how greatful and appreciative that we are for the Brits sticking with us (Aussies too). After all our countries have been through together and against each other, it's a wonderful relationship that is strong enough alone to influence the world in a positive way. Too bad the French are such a shitty group of forgetful people.

War sucks, but people getting killed while they're at work, sitting a 1/4 mile up in the air, with pictures of their family on the desk in front of them must and will demand a price to be paid.

My bro is a civilian working for the military in Washington. I still get emotional every time I visit the Korean mounument and see the wall that states "Freedom Is Not Free." That one sentance says so many things.

Thanks for the input boys! Sounds like you would hit the dirt just like myself if called upon. It's nice to see your fello riders can put the toys away and get to work when the freaks overseas get out of hand. Found out that one of my buds was wounded in the leg and is now in the states. He's fine. Ambush caught him off guard. LETS ROLL!!
