Stop bashing Bush, start supporting troops

Stop bashing our president and start supporting our troops. As a previous resident of Nevada County, now proudly serving our country in the U.S. Air Force, I am disgusted with the lack of support for the troops fighting for all of your rights, including your first amendment right; you know what I am talking about.

The problem is this ” people take those rights for granted. If we backed down from conflicts and wars throughout the history of the United States, we wouldn’t have these rights.

If you are going to write an article, look at both sides. Most schools in Iraq are open, most courts are open, and there is more water than there ever was. Bottom line is this: Stop the uneducated opinions and be happy you have people willing to fight for you, because like Toby Keith says, “I don’t want to die for you, but if dyin’s asked of me, I’ll bear that cross with an honor, cause freedom don’t come free.”

What we are doing in Iraq is necessary, and if you don’t agree, fine, but don’t bash our president support our troops. We are all supporting you.
