Thoughts: Out of touch liberals


On a regular basis, we hear people say how they "support the troops but are against the war." This has never made much sense to me, but then again, I'm not as smart as actors and comedians. Is there anything they don't know?

Richard Belzer helped hash this out recently. The Law & Order actor and long-time comedian let the cat out of the bag during an appearance on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher.

The bottom line for Belzer: The troops aren't the best qualified to comment on the war because they don't have time to read 20 newspapers a day, can't know the truth because too busy trying not to die, and are "19- and 2
0-year-old kids who couldn't get a job.
Wow If this isn't ignorance I don't know what is. Belzer has no idea who is in the military. The "kids" in the military aren't morons who can't get a job they are men and women who are willing to fight and die for the freedom we so cherish. With out these "kids" Belzer wouldn't have the freedom to be so ignorant that he does now.

I'm going to take the word or someone who has fought and bleed in Iraq over some moron who plays make believe in Hollywood. When Neil Armstrong went to the moon did he have to wait to find out what was really going on there from the newspapers? No he was there, he knew.
