It’s a really tough town.

“Please be quiet. Please don’t tell me what to do.”

“You’re not doing it, so somebody’s got to tell you what to do.”

“I mean it, I’ll cut the doggone cameras off and we will go for it right here. If you keep talking to me you’re going to see me from the east side of Detroit.”

Two Detroit city council members go straight playground on each other. The punchline: They’re women.

    At least they’re not selling racist T-shirts.

    Starts at the top. That’s exactly the type of rhetoric the President of the US uses in the intenational arena.

    Michael G,

    Oh puleeezzze!

    Our pres, whether you agree w/his policies or not, is no street thug. I don’t know if you live anywhere near where the 9-11 attacks occurred, but I do. I think often that a nuclear bomb or perhaps another plane could hit w/o much warning. The world’s socialists prefer to cave in to extreme Islamic threats and lose their cultures, not to mention their lives. Fine. We Americans are not going without a fight.

    I am not a regular reader here. Just happened to stop in from another site and could not let Michael G’s false claim stand unanswered.

    Defending our people is equivalent to thuggery or to the bellicose, unseemly, undignified, and immature public behavior of these women? W conducts himself w/dignity and respect for others. [My language was not bellicose or unseemly, either. I don’t want to be killed by terrorists and prefer to be defended, frankly.]

    You may want to consider the extensive corruption, deceit, and pocket-lining by Koffe Annan et al at the UN in the Food-for-Cash, er Oil, program. Also, consider the fact that France (a country I enjoy visiting) deeply betrayed its commitment to support the US when push came to shove b/c France had a great deal invested in the status quo by disregarding the oil trade restrictions on Iraq. Is W the truly untrustworthy one among western leaders? I think not.

    I don’t like everthing W has done, but he is a very decent, honorable man. Why does that scare people? Why does defending our nation scare people? Should W just call off all intelligence and military personnel who are watching out for us day and night? Are you more afraid of W than of extreme Islamists?

    [Please note that I do distinguish between the Islamic religion as a whole and those extremists who seek to kill us. Interestingly, here in DC metro–very politically liberal–on a local radio show recently, I was quite surprised, as was the host, that in over 2 hours of calls on the topic only 1 person said they’d be willing to have a Mosque built in their neighborhood! There is real fear out here.]


    This is not my usual neighborhood. I am sure I won’t be able to encourage you to consider other views. C’est finit.

    Wow! I wouldn’t know where to start. My remark referred to Mr. Bush’s unfortunate habit of making rather intemperate remarks during the course of his official utterances. Peggy has taken that to mean, well, I don’t know what for certain. It sure lit her fuse.
