Sick of the Global War on Terror

I agree with Ezra that I'm a bit tired of the discussion on the "Global War on Terror" as well, since, as Ezra said, it's "overwhelmed by Iraq." What's more, the way the discussion has been framed, since the term was dubbed by the Bush administration, suggests that we're all in this together. This couldn't be further from the truth. Instead, it's this fierce "us against them" ideology purported by the Bush/Cheney administration. And as Lynne Cheney demonstrated last week on the Daily Show, that doesn't include terrorist attacks on our allies.

Where did you learn to write? This posting is totally unintelligible. It sounds like it was written by an eigth grader. Try reading it back. You are an idiot!

Sam, you are a royal douchebag.

I've got to agree with Sam, although "idiot" may be a bit out of line. Although Kay's sentiments are good, this is a TERRIBLY written piece. I teach junior high school in the suburbs; I would give this paragraph a failing grade. Did Ezra make a CLAIM that Kay "was a bit tired of the discussion?" Is the ideology under discussion "purported" by the Bush administration?

"nn" needs to grow up "sam" should be more polite, and Kay should tak a remedial writing class.

I think she must have just not proofread this piece, that's all.

Just like Georgia didn't proofread her comment, when she suggested that Kay "tak a remedial writing class."

Give her a break. Everything else she writes is quite good.
