FREEDOM DON'T RING ON THE RIGHT DOOR:
Mrs. Bush (What's her first name? Barbara, Laura...? You know? The president's wife?) is the typical suppressed woman a conservative marries. Remember Martha, Mitchell's wife, in the Nixon era who conservative's actually drugged to shut up? That's a conservative marriage for you. Anyhow, when you measure the gutless actions of Laura Bush who censored her own poetry gathering because some of the poets didn't agree with her husband's war in Iraq as compared with Teresa Kerry who openly states her anti-abortion views, Americans can see for ourselves the oppression in a typical conservative marriage. Not only that, you can see that Cheney's gay daughter hasn't openly opposed her father's position on gay rights. In conservative households, it isn't safe for a woman to disagree so most of what we see is the censored view of womanhood.
What fundamentalists just don't get is freedom. They can say the word, but they can't walk the talk. That's because their chief philosophy book, that collection of fiction mixed with a grain of history, the Bible, doesn't recognize freedom or liberty or democracy or the freedom of women. It honors only obedience. It's a book full of kings and princes more suited to 2000 years ago then now.
Here's how a lively Democrat speaks, and I love her for it. Any other kind of woman is a bore: "I refuse to be censored... the moment I start to control my deepest beliefs and my actions, I lose who I am.... I don't want to be bottled. I'm not ketchup." —Teresa Kerry
We all know what it's like to lose ourselves, don't we? Whoops—guess I'm speaking only for people free enough to know who we are and to fight against those who cherish only obedience.
BUSH STIFFLES HIS EDITH WIFE
BUT BUSH'S BUDDIES CAN'T SHUT MICHAEL UP
It's okay to get a huge piece of fiction like Gibson's "Passion" on the screen, but see how the Disney (dizzy?) powers are out to silence Michael Moore's true, "Fahrenheit 911"! Boy, are they afraid of an alternative view! CENSORED
WHEN THE HYPOCRISY'S ON THE OTHER FOOT
How many anti-choice (supposedly pro life) people are pro death penalty and pro Bush's war which is slaughtering thousands of women and children in Iraq? The Democrats didn't hesitate to throw out LBJ for his expansion of the Vietnam War. Do the Republicans have the same courage to do what's right? I don't think so! It's not in them to be free men and women.
