    From Hearing both sidesSunday, July 16, 2006For the past year, the former president of Tampa Bay Veterans for Peace, Dwight Lawton, has been trying to spread a message to Pinellas County high school students."For students, it is that they have equal access to information so that they can make decision based on understanding the pros and cons of going in the service," Lawton said.Lawton, 75, was drafted into the Navy and fought in the Korean War. He says although he had no choice in serving in the military, kids today do. He's pushing for the Pinellas County school board...

    D.C. Chapter STOPS the Crawford "Peace" Bus in its tracks, after it parked illegally for over an hour blocking traffic Friday night at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Rescue & fire trucks had to change lanes to avoid the hippy bus. Metro Police was called three times but failed to respond, so the DC Chapter took a "citizen's action". See the movie: PLEASE BE ADVISED MY SERVER MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ADEQUATELY HANDLE ALL THE DOWNLOADING OF THE VIDEO TRAFFIC THAT THIS POST WILL GENERATE.

    If this email is legit, the Veterans For Peace admit that as of the 27th of last month they had yet to spend one red cent on Katrina aid, despite raising at least a half million dollars purportedly for that purpose.(Patrick Tate is the head of the VFP's #116 local chapter, who are the folks running this Katrina scam.

    Mother Sheehan fans will recall that as hurricane Katrina threatened to remove her grieving visage from the front page of the nation's newspapers, Cindy got together with her pals, the Veterans For Peace, to start a Katrina relief effort. The self-designated worthy being, Michael Moore, began vouching and shilling for the VFP's Katrina relief program.As discussed previously, the VFP asked for donations that they claimed would be used to "support" the Red Cross. The VFP later falsely claimed that the Red Cross had designated them "the best shelter" doing Katrina relief. (The VFP never opened any kind of shelter.)Meanwhile, the...

    After weeks of suspense, we now finally have documentary proof of the existence of the fabled Camp Casey III, thanks to the Veterans For Peace Katrina relief website: Very impressive, is it not? Mind you, the VFP have been collecting more than $120,000 a day for their Katrina relief effort. And this is the only photograph we have of Camp Casey III.The VFP's fundraising pleas have been promulgated on a thousand leftwing websites and media organs. Cindy Sheehan has of course championed them. They're her team, after all.Michael Moore personally vouched for them and made his site a weeks long...

    The Santa Barbara Veterans for Peace have agreed to remove the name of Capt. Derek Argel from its Arlington West memorial, after the fallen soldier's mother complained that the display was an insult to her son's memory. The Lompoc Air Force special tactics officer was killed Memorial Day in a plane crash in Iraq, and his name became one of the more than 1,800 represented on the rows of crosses displayed each weekend at West Beach. The decision to take down the marker came after the group heard that Debbie Argel Bastian, his mother, and Wendy Argel, his widow, wanted...

    CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - Thousands of war protesters have come and gone since a grieving mother started camping off the road leading to President Bush's ranch three weeks ago, from business executives to young parents and their children spending a few hours or days for the cause. But for more than a dozen people, their home for much of the sweltering month has been the makeshift campsite of tents and portable toilets in ditches and anti-war banners hanging from trees. "It's staggering what's happened," said camp leader Ann Wright, who resigned her post as a senior diplomat at the U.S....

    At Cindy Sheehan's side since Aug. 6 when she began her anti-war protest outside President Bush's Texas ranch have been three groups that openly support the Iraqi insurgency against U.S. troops: Code Pink-Women For Peace, United for Peace & Justice, and Veterans For Peace. Those organizations were represented at a mock ''war crimes'' trial in Istanbul that on June 27 produced a joint declaration backing the insurgency. Based on the United Nations Charter, it said ''the popular national resistance to the occupation is legitimate and justified. It deserves the support of people everywhere who care for justice and freedom.'' The...

    As she continues her anti-war protest, Cindy Sheehan is labeling President Bush a "maniac" and a "lying bastard," and she's vowing not to pay her federal income tax. "My son was killed in 2004. I am not paying my taxes for 2004," Sheehan told an audience of Veterans for Peace. "You killed my son, George Bush, and I don't owe you a penny. ... You give my son back and I'll pay my taxes. Come after me [for back taxes] and we'll put this war on trial."

    The America-hating left has a new heroine; Cindy Sheehan, mother of a soldier who volunteered for and served with the US Army. Specialist Casey Sheehan died in combat in Iraq. Ms. Sheehan has for weeks now been camping out a few miles from President Bush's Crawford, TX, ranch, staging a protest that has received goo-goo attention from the same media that brought you President Bush’s National Guard “desertion” fiction and Karl Rove’s “treasonous” outing of the identity of a CIA worker who was as covert as Howard Dean at a DNC rally. Ms. Sheehan is demanding a meeting with President...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    WASHINGTON — Megan Watson, leader of Mainstream Moms, is so angry at military recruiters for invading schools to sign up unwary youth for combat in Iraq that she and her group launched an online movement, “” “They offer these trinkets to lure our children to enlist,” Watson said in a phone interview from her home in Bolinas, Calif. “This is very aggressive, demographic targeting to have conversations with our kids that should not be happening.” All branches of the military are falling short of recruiting goals as parents say, in effect, “Hell no! My kids won’t go!” Watson blasted the...
