I have no use for punk leaders who use their uneducated power to torture
and deprive helpless prisoners or anyone else for that matter. You can see
the evil in the eyes of Cheney and others.


we should have just put a bullet in their heads.

thats what they did to our captured soldiers.

I'll be on a study trip to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum with a packed itinerary, but will try to come for part of the event on the 25. I'll try to bring some
of the others from the group with me.
