I’m sorry, but I just cannot let this slip by without bringing it to your attention. I believe I may have found someone who is more ignorant than Keith Olberman, Janeane Garofalo or Bill Maher. Following is a “conversation” I have been having with a fellow blogger concerning my post “Giving thanks…sort of”. I will not comment further. Read for yourselves and decide:

[Our greatest national treasure is our Military.]
That’s a big difference between conservatives and liberals. To conservatives, it’s our military that makes our country great. To liberals, it’s things like our national parks, our democracy, our fairness for everyone — including terrorists, our land of opportunity. While we need a military to preserve those rights, saying that the military is our greatest treasure is like saying our police is our greatest treasure. We are not a military junta or a police state. We are a democracy and our democracy — flawed as it may be — is our greatest treasure.

One opinion versus another. Hope you have a wonderful, terror attack free Thanksgiving. Oh, and don’t forget to thank the men and women eating in mess tents in foreign lands for that while you are at it. By the way, Ben, I see you haven’t worked on improving your reading comprehension skills. I AM NOT A CONSERVATIVE, HON! I am a Libertarian. Love ya anyway.

A terror attack would be a refreshing break from dinner with the in-laws!
