Kerry Finally Answers the 40,000 Troops Q
24 Jul 2004
Modified: 12:37:17 AM
There has been much talk of the draft, especially with the 'stop loss' orders that already have 50,000 plus troops serving. Kerry has long claimed he would 'add 40,000 troops' to the army- but when Kucinich asked him about where the troops were coming from, Kerry avoided the question.

Now, just before the convention, Kerry finally tells us (indirectly) where he'll get those 40,000 troops when nobody is signing up to die for oil anymore.

Kerry tells black voters, piss off. I'm not going to help you by calling off the drug war, i'm going to send more cops to your streets to arrest all those evil smokers (terrorize you and your families)

duh...
end the drug war
end the high drug prices
end the gang problem

kerry's solution of more cops sounds just like bush.

we are sick of this bullshit war on the people

wake up to the reality of police brutality kerry, more cops is not the answer- sane cops that aren't doped up on steroids and anthrax vaccine is the answer. just say no to the police state

REJECT KERRY
and the entire Democratic corporate ass sucking 'Leadership' Council.

RISE UP DELEGATES!

Fahrenheit 911 has exposed bush, NOBODY will vote for that fool- have no fears about 'electability'- Kucinich will win in a landslide election. We must not settle for Kerry and his absurd right-wing policies.

40 years ago J.F.K ( John Forbes Kerry) would equal L.B.J. Put down your books, pick up a gun....
lol about 'electability'

this guy is electable? look at his body language laughing with his boy toy Marvin (top right)- and look at Dean and that other guy share a knowing glance while kerry makes a fool of himself for the camera.

After the convention, soometime in Oct, the Kerry-Marvin-theboytoy story will hit the media, along with all those pics of Kerry and Edwards squeezing each other.... and that's how they're going to shove bush on us again.

you can just see the puppy love in kerry's eyes as he admires his new squeeze toy.

oh- and i think what the orig poster meant is that Kerry's plan for zero tolerance on gang violence means that he'll arrest those gang members, then offer them cash and a job in the army (already desensitized killers = good troops) or they get prison time.

I don't really care much about Kerry, but what the fuck is with your homophobia?

Anyway, four of those nine photos on Sludgereport were clearly of the same embrace, and one is just a clever camera angle. In a lot of other cultures there isn't this fear that all physical contact between men has to do with desire for sex. How much must we hate our bodies to refuse to recognize the existence of physical affection outside of sexuality? I'm a straight man but I'm not going to let an irrational, homophobic culture keep me from embracing my father and my closest male friends.

Original poster--

good post, and funny punchline about Kucinich.
