    My point is that if you go down there and start burning the stars and strips, your just going to end up pissing off plain folks like me, just some poor working stiff who hates bush but loves his contry and his flag.

    in short: F*ck Bush/Respect our flag.

    i agree. apparently the organised protests have claimed they have nothing against america so i dont expect to see this kind of action taking place, although the organised protesters are not the ones everyone is worried about.

    Patriotism is like masturbation, it can be great for those involved.

    however it can only lead to narrow mindness, if love your country you can find it hard to accept when they are wrong, or, even worse, think they are always right and whats good for you is good enough for the rest of the world. thats the situation america is finding itself in, very hard to accept why people hate you so much.

    feminism started having problems when they lost their enemy. they dont have a real target anymore, so as a doctrine, it just turns on itself.
    I think we've argued on this point once before and i don't want to go into it again. I just want to say that the women are still being discriminated against and your statement seems to suggest that the feminist movement no longer has a cause, which totally wrong.

    which is my point. actions taken against institutions and the state had those very things as recognisable targets. feminism is now dividing itself because it cannot decide over who or what is the specific target. a poor analogy, but the US found more united support against the Soviets than it does now(know!?!?!) seemingly fighting individual pockets of terrorists.

    This is the opening few paragraphs from a column in National Review today, quite hilarious....a very fine periodical.


    LONDON — George W. Bush's visit to London this week will be historic for at least two reasons. He will be the first U.S. president to come to Britain on a state visit. He will also observe a bizarre political marriage: one between the remnants of the Marxist-Leninist Left and militant Islamists. Negotiated over the past two years, the "wedding," will be celebrated in a mass demonstration against Bush's visit.

    The demonstration is organized by a shadowy group called "Stop the War Coalition," part of the Hate-America-International, which has orchestrated a number of street "events" in support of the Taliban and the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein since 2001.

    When I called the coalition to ask whether the idea was to stop all wars, a spokeswoman assured me that this was not the case.

    She referred me to the first article of the coalition's charter that states: "The aim of the coalition is simple: to stop the war currently declared by the United States and its allies against 'terrorism.'"

    "We really want to stop Bush and Blair from going around killing babies," she said. "Our objective is to force the U.S. out of Iraq and Afghanistan."

    But what if a U.S. withdrawal means the return of the Taliban and Saddam Hussein?

    "Anything would be better than American Imperialist rule," she snapped back.
