Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

"The supporters of this war have run out of convincing lies and effective emotional appeals. Now they are reduced to attacking the grieving mothers of dead soldiers. Samuel Johnson suggested that patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel. But, with their attacks on Cindy Sheehan, the apologists for Bush's infamy have found a new and darker refuge."

- John Nichols writing in the Capitol Times of Madison Wisconsin

Must Read Bob Herbert Column: "If Mr. Bush's war in Iraq is worth dying for, then the children of the privileged should be doing some of the dying."

- Bob Herbert

Are ANY children or grandchildren of ANY senior White House Officials serving in Iraq? The answer to that is NO! Why aren’t the children and grandchildren of Bush Administration Officials serving in Iraq? Why are we, the regular Americans who have no political clout, asked to die for their decisions? My cousin just got back from serving in Iraq. Thank God she lived, but thousands of other active service members in Iraq are DEAD! None of these dead are children or grandchildren of Bush Administration Officials. Why? If they think our being in Iraq is a good idea why won’t they send their own kids to die? Why do we if they won’t?

- Joe
