Average Joe is one of those complainers about free speech. this country would be just fine if those demonstrators disappeared - in this case she or he seems to think the veterans who fought in Iraq shouldn't be exercising their right of free speech. I feel sorry for you Average Joe. Try your best to read up on the lies that led to the Iraq war and the rights guaranteed under the U.S. constitution and maybe you'll become Above Average like the children in Minnesota.

Conservative values standard bearer Palin's daughter - 17 - is 5 months gone. This was done to dispel those nasty rumors that she had covered up her daughter's pregnancy.

Why not use all of that time and energy to show support for our country and the men and women who dedicate themselves to defending all of us from a very dangerous world.

Is it not a wonderful thing to be able to express one's opinions in this great nation. These America-hating protesters should remember this as they march against this great nation. Try this in many countries and they would be at a minimum arrested.

The RNC is now fundraising for those effected and canceling events yet people are protesting. The only thing they are protesting now is the R's raising money for those in need? Please have some sense and come together to help these people out, there will be enough time for protesting later!

Have you lost your mind??? Many from my generation are Vets and not draft dodgers like some, Cheney. Lieberman and most of the Bush administration. I gave my country 6 years of military service during the Viet Nam and 35 years of government service and 5 years of volunteer services. I am pro-life in a reasonable way and I believe that a pro-lifer who is Pro-war is a hypocritical. Pro-life is throughout life and after birth by caring for the sick, needy, and disadvantaged and war kills many innocent civilians like it has in Iraq..over 400,000 dead civilians. Maybe our country needs more Vet Freaks like me as you identify US VETS. How much time have you given your country Average_Joe? I feel I have done my part and continue to do as much as I can as long as I can.

that democrats shouldn't be allowed to serve in the military. They only come home and complain about how horrible the experience was and demand their government benefits. Thank God they make up only a small minority of service people.
