Re: BUMMER NEWS!


He's in Kuwait...so yeh, he's out of the hot seat area for now. And no,
the government contracts airlines to deploy them....our tax dollars
workin for ya...don't get me started on the whole government
thing...just for ONCE I would like to focus on the real issues in our
country, and not whether the candidate is black, or a woman, or what
special interest groups do for them. I would like to see a candidate
stand up and say "it's the economy, stupid....it's the war,
stupid....put freaking regulations on gas prices, stupid...the gov't
regulates everything ELSE.

Like I said...don't get me started.  Bad day.

OMG - I am SO sorry he won't be home until next week - that stinks!  But is
he out of the hot zone for now until they can get him on a plane (I hope).
And don't we have any military transports to fly these guys home in??
