No shirt off their backs

Upon release from prison, the Lockerbie bomber of Pam Am flight 103 is applauded by Libyans, given a hero’s welcome, and Omar Qaddafi himself hugs and kisses him.

He only killed 270 Americans.

Now, the President Bush “shoe thrower” is let out of jail early and given ‘gifts’ by the Iranian government. He didn't kill G.W. Bush, just humiliated him.

When will the United States wake up and realize many parts of the world hate us? Why spend over a trillion dollars and seven years and 4,350 lives "freeing the Iraqi people" when their elections are bogus?

And 54 soldiers were killed in Afghanistan in August alone.

This just isn't worth the time, energy and lives to save these people who wouldn't give you the shirt off their backs.

Paul D'Argent, 37209

Look...I'll work until I can't work anymore...period. If that means I work and get chemo, then so be it.

Once I can't work anymore, then I'll retire.
