  1. The use of the UN by those that Support this Illegal War boggles ones mind!!!

    It’s coming from those that can’t stand the UN and want it Abolished!

    We are Not a UN Military Force!

    We did Not Invade and Occupy because of any UN Resolutions!

    If that were so than when do we Invade and occupy other countries that are not upholding UN Resolutions, i/e. Israel!

    It’s an Illegal War not sabctioned by the UN nor voted as to War by Congress!!

    And if people want this Country to Act as those we’ve always Condemned their actions on Human Rights, than Stop Using ‘God’ to bless us!!!!!

  2. To followup previous post, the Known torture that has taken place has Killed Soldiers In-Theater from the Blowback already known by those we occupy!!

    If we go against our long standing beliefs in Human Rights, and how the teachings of our religions tell us, than we join those as stated We’ve Condemned, and the result is the retalitions that will come and we cannot condemn, for we are doing same!

    Atrocity Breeds Atrocity!

    USN ’67-’71 GMG3 Vietnam In-Country ’70-’71
    It happened in ‘Nam!!!

  3. I wonder if all those who SEEM to want to verbally attack you, would feel the same way IF THEY were held without charges, became victims of extreme interrigation, found not to have any valuable info and released.
    Many AMERICANS if they were in the same place as the detainees, would want the same rights that the Supreme court ruled on! With the Patriot Act, OUR government can do to US what they are doing to the detainees and we would HAVE NO recourse!

  4. HI MIKE. IT WOULD SEEM THAT LOSING THE ABILITY TO READ ANOUT THE NEWS FOR SOME WOULD BE A GREAT TRAGEDY. IT IS AFFORDABLE AND A GREAT WAY FOR NEWS TO TRAVEL.

    I OWN HAIRSCHOOLS AND HAVE MY STUDENTS LISTEN TO YOUR SHOW AND WW READ TODAYS EVENTS FROM TJE PAPER EVERY DAY. IT IS A MUST FOE READING SKILLS AND JUST MAKES GOOD REASONING.

    MY SON AT 7 HAS BEGUN READING THE PAPER WITH ME TO WORK ON HIS WORDS. THIS ALSO OPENS DOORS TO QUESTIONS GALOR AND HIS LEARNING HAS DOUBLED BECAUSE OF THIS.

    AS FOR THE WAR. THERE IS NO TRUE ANSWER ANYMORE. NO MATTER WHO WE ELECT. SO PEOPLE NEED TO GET REAL. POLOTICS ARE UNDER THE TABLE ALWAYS. WE PROBABLY WILL ALWAYS BE SOLD A BILL OF GOODS WORTH THE PRICE OF A SIMPLE NEWSPAPER.

    FINALLY. WE ALL NEED TO THANK AND KISS THE GROUND THAT WE LIVE ON. THE WORLD IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE BUT WE NEED TO REALLY TAKE CARE OF IT.

    THANKS

  5. Happy anniversary to you and the gang!
    I noticed that your show now has a Facebook presence, and I was wondering if you have considered the possibilities when both technologies, and networks of listeners, converge.

    May the next 10 years be as delightful and edifying as the last 10.

  6. ps. Writting on an iPhone is not easy when your thumbs are large. Sorry about all the mistakes above

  7. As a county we can not condone torture of prisoners. But at least we do not cut their heads off with a knife and video tape it for the world to see. We may be bad but perhaps evil does have degrees. Besides that, how many countries allow voices to ring out that disagree with government or military actions. May God Bless America!

  8. Hi Mike,

    I did not have opportunity to listen to the whole show today before I arrived at worked, but I wanted to comment on some of the first callers you took. The gentleman from SC seemed to believe that the “end justifies the means”, while I think that this is incorrect, this is an indication of a mentally that exist more than we would like to admit here in America. This war as you correctly stated should be called an illegal war and this administration has somehow managed to pull this and many other things off without much concern from the American public. While the media reports on these things the general public seems apathetic and unwilling to demand that anyone be held accountable. I know that most people are very busy worrying about gas prices and other day to day events, but it seems we are numb towards the real direction the country seems to be going. You had a show several weeks ago about crime increasing here in Charlotte as it has in other areas of the country, it seems we have more of an internal threat to our security than an external one. I certainly do not feel any safer because of this “war on terrorism” that we are waging. Some would say “well we have not had any more attacks” and that is proof that the war is working, but they (terrorist) might be saying “why come to America to kill Americans when you can kill them in our own backyard”.

  9. We are a nation that likes to pride itself on truth, justice, freedom and humanity.

    Really?

    No More!!

    And would those who use “God Bless America” and “In God We Trust’ so loosely Explain this “God” they are speaking of, it certainly isn’t the God I was brought up to belive in!

  10. Either you believe that there is an enemy intent on murdering innocent Americans by the thousands or you don’t. They were at war with us long before we were at war with them. We have been safe for seven years because of this, as Mike calls it, “so called war on terrorism”.
