Where's Cindy?


#1


Everything in the USA must be copacetic or I know Cindy would be calling for Obama to be arrested.

Drones were an extremely wicked, cruel act when Bush - Cheney were in office. Cindy called for both to be arrested for war crimes.

Obama created change. War is okay now because a socialist is in the White House.

From wiki-

In August 2009, Sheehan protested at Martha's Vineyard during President Barack Obama's stay there. According to ABC News: "Sheehan invoked Senator Ted Kennedy's passing as part of her message, noting that he was firmly antiwar and how he said his proudest vote as a senator was his 2002 vote against the Iraq war."[53] On October 5, 2009, Sheehan was arrested with 60 others at the White House protesting President Obama's continuation of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She told CNN: "I think the mood of the country and the mood of our movement is getting a little bit more desperate, and [that] this will be the time to be able to translate our tireless activism and work for peace."[54]

On December 10, 2009, Sheehan protested on the streets of Oslo, Norway, as President Barack Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize.[55]

On March 20, 2010, Sheehan was again arrested in front of the White House, along with seven others, after they refused to listen to orders by officers of the United States Park Police to clear the sidewalk on Pennsylvania Avenue.[56] On July 12, Sheehan and four other activists were on trial in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia stemming from the arrests. The government decided not to try three others arrested that day, and had their cases dismissed. Sheehan and two others were acquitted of crossing a police line, while the other two were found guilty.[57]

It is more likely the case that the war in Iraq simply doesn't receive as much news anymore, and as such she is no longer relevant to today's media.

...just doing some Leno jaywalking to see if you kids know your news.

She is currently running for 2014 governor of California and spoke at a protest March Against Monsanto Madness (which I am in agreement with her on. they are spreading untested technology of genetic food engineering worldwide)

On Memorial Day, she came to some heartbreaking conclusions," she wrote. She came to the realization that many on the left do..."If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty, you have no brain."

When she had first taken on Bush, Sheehan was a darling of the liberal left. "However, when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I held the Republican Party, support for my cause started to erode and the "left" started labeling me with the same slurs that the right used," she wrote. (I would guess it was a little worse than what the right would call her)

But she said the most devastating conclusion she had reached "was that her son Casey did indeed die for nothing ... killed by his own country which is beholden to and run by a war machine that even controls what we think."

U.S. Army Specialist Casey Sheehan, was killed by enemy action during the Iraq War. She said she was returning to California on Tuesday because it was Caseyâ??s birthday. He would have been 28.

No, you were trolling, because you are a troll, and got called on your ignorance on the subject and are now making a feeble attempt at backpedaling.

Right or wrong I have no problems with her, even if she were just venting, because she lost a son who did far more for his country than you have ever done or will ever do.

Your attempt to paint her as some hypocrite liberal with double standards when it comes to Bush and Obama shows that you are either a shameless troll or simply a piece of trash who can't look at anything without putting some liberal vs conservative spin on it.

Unless you have the courage, for lack of a better word, to look her in the eyes and tell her to shut up then maybe you should just shut up instead of trying to insult her. Your thread title alone is disrespectful and an embarrassment to the entire forum.

...stop whining at every post I make before i punch you in the vagina.

"an embarrassment to the entire forum" ...as if you

Obviously you hate women so the idea of punching someone in the vagina is not surprising coming from you. Besides that, you tried to troll (because that's what trolls do) and were made to look ignorant when it came to the subject you were trying to troll. You wanted to start some Cindy bashing and it turned out you had to reverse your original position and come up with some lame excuse for starting the thread. You can always sue me...how is that going? Are you a nanny for lawyer's kid so you are getting a discount?
