No thanks. I'll stay here and work against your political views and vote
against the candidates you support. NRA for--me against! Don't you love

You have your views, and they're between you, God, and the therapist you so
And when you refer to me, you might use the term Commander that I earned in
my 27 years (more than half my life) of combined regular and reserve
military service, if you please. And my regular service came during the
Vietnam War, where I was not safely holed up like George W. Bush, Pat
Buchanan, Newt Gingrich or any of the other flamers you would support.

I hoped you would explain this, but perhaps the propaganda you are using
doesn't specify, so just forget it.

This land is my land, this land is your land. You do not dictate what true
patriotism or Americanism is to me or anyone else, thank God.
Listen, everyone. I know I should have let this go, but please forgive me,
especially Ray. I am serious in trying to let our international audience
know that what you are reading in Bruce's posts is NOT REPRESENTATIVE of all
Americans. We are not Cowboys extolling violence and excusing mayhem in our
society. And one day we will prevail.
In fact I imagine that Bruce is really putting all this on as an act. I
think he is really a liberal Democrat, upset because Gore and Bradley are
too moderate. George McGovern--now there's Bruce's guy! I think he really
supports reasonable gun control to preserve a little peace in this too
violent country. And I further imagine that he really is mentally healthy.
Of course, I might be wrong.
Best wishes to all for a peaceful Christmas
