Three More Votes for Kerry-Edwards


Kriste Kline • 31 October 2004

Well, there he goes again. Patrick Hurley really needs to get a new hobby. He's just not good at trashing John Kerry. He repeats the same tired old lies that have already been discredited several times over, if Senator Kerry is tenuously (at best) linked to Jane Fonda enough times (just to give one example), seeming to believe if the lies are repeated enough times, they will all magically become the truth. Earth to Patrick Hurley!

Has Mr Hurley actually bothered himself to read all 32 pages of Senator Kerry's testimony before the Senate in 1972? I have, my daughter found it and sent it to me and it's very different from the way it is portrayed by Mr Hurley and those like him who would like to brush aside details like the facts and truth.

Here's the facts of the matter, Mr Bush is an unrepentant liar who claims never to have made a mistake, or at least not one he can recall. He just went missing (sort of like the explosives!) for a year and Mr Hurley has NO problem with that?? Astounding. He LIED to take us into an unnecessary war which has (so far) cost over 1100 American lives and we don't know how many Iraqis because we don't care about that, oh, and just by the way BILLIONS of dollars so he could finish off his Daddy's pissing contest.

I'm sure Mr Hurley will be delighted to know that my two daughters and I cast our votes this past Wednesday.........only a two hour wait and three more votes for Kerry-Edwards.

The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent



All censorships exist to prevent any one from challenging current conceptions and existing institutions. All progress is initiated by challenging current conceptions, and executed by supplanting existing institutions. Consequently the first condition of progress is the removal of censorships.
