That is exactly why I think marching is antiquated (unless you're going to open all kinds of whoop ass and take no prisoners). It may feel good, but what does it do ? Every last one of us could leave our homes and march right up to the gate of the white house and George Bush et al would still go right on about their business. You can't march against a tyranical government.

Respectfully, I'm not sure I can see a difference between Repbulicans and Democrats on this issue. Clearly, Republicans look to government to line their pockets in all sorts of activist ways - from Enron, to oil/energy policy, to trade protectionism and tarrifs, to Halliburton et al, to the military inustrial complex etc. Conservatives seem to like to talk about self-reliance until they find a way that they can receive a hand out.

MBM, all I can say is that the US government cares as much for the Iraqi people's welfare as he does for Amerikkkans. Ever since 9/11, and especially now, Bush himself is doing such a good job of destroying this countries' global profile, robbing it's citizens of their essential freedoms, and increasing world-wide hatred for the U.S, that I'd assume AL QAEDA isn't in any hurry to make a hasty attack just to be timely. 9/11 is still working in their favor, there's no rush .

The concept of "threat" is a dynamic one. I think part of the problem is that Bush seems to apply standards selectively - which naturally creates questions about motivation and truthfulness.

To be clear, it seems that criticizing anyone for supporting the war will be problematic since most of the argument to go to war was fabricated out of lies. IF all of the things that Bush et al said about Iraq/Hussein were true - then one might be a bit more inclined to act out of a sense of our national security and well-being.

No, it's not. Jesse's victory diminished the thought of Nazi "white" supremacy (at least) in sports. Plus, months after Al Campanis of the Dodgers said that blacks weren't qualified to be baseball managers or owners, people were questioning if the Washington Redskins have a chance in beating the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl with a black quarterback. Maybe more similar to Jackie Robison than Jesse Owens since baseball and football are both team sports.
