OK, I'll Bite
OK, Cindy, I'll accept your premise that only people who support the Iraq War should be serving in it. I'll take it even further.

I want you to refund every single penny of my taxes that was not spent on the military, public roads, police/fire/ambulance protection, or schools (and I want specific parts of that back, too). You like NPR and the NEA, so you fund them—I'll pay for the CIA and the FBI.

You see, it doesn't work that way in a democracy. But you're not interested in democracy—you want only your voice to be heard. You think that yours is the only acceptable position, so I have to ask: what makes us fascists?

Furthermore: have you ever seen a more Orwellian effort to control the media's message than this?
