Casey Sheehan

I haven't posted about Cindy Sheehan, so this post will be short. Everyone here knows my politics so I don't need to rant about her, but while she is off spouting that the "Universe has chosen her to be this voice", I would like to ask a simple question: Where is Casey's Voice?

That is right. I know that he met an untimely, yet honorable, death in Iraq. But I want to hear his voice. Where are the letters home, the emails to friends and family? What did they say? Was he proud of the job he was accomplishing?

How about that buddy letter? You know the one. The one most young men hand to their buddies in the event something tragic happens. What did that letter say?

Did you ever wonder why Cindy Sheehan never says: "Casey told me . . ." or "Casey said . . ." It is because his words would be an inspiration. They would likely tell the tale of a young man proud to serve his country, proud to get the mission accomplished, proud of the difference he was making in others' lives.

Cindy Sheehan doesn't speak for me, she wasn't empowered by the Universe to speak for anyone. She certainly doesn't speak for Casey Sheehan. His voice can still be heard. I hope that family and friends of Casey read this and can tell us what his thoughts really were. If they were in line with his mom, then she has every right to speak for him. If they were not? She should step aside!

And I am so very tired of Camp Cindy being front and center in the MSM. Katrina is pushing her aside for now but for how much longer? Sheesh!

My BIL was in Casey's unit. I can tell you she does not speak for him. Casey was proud of his service and, like his brothers in arms, eager to help the Iraqi people.

Thank you for an excellent point!

Caltechgirl, thank you for confirming what I had suspected all along!

So, not only does Ms. Sheehan not speak for me, but she does not speak for Casey either. For shame!

Cindy only speaks for the far-left, NOT for this country in general, in fact, not for about 99.999% of this country. She is a leftist tool and a total ass.

It's been a complete circus with all the hollyweirds coming under the tent. All it needs now is for Michael Jackson to sing the bizaree grand finale. Please tell me, when does it end? I'm about as sick as I can get already.

As long as Cindy Sheehan and her growing bunch of carnies continues to get air time, we're all assured that the First Amendment is alive and kickin'. I'm always happy to hear the voice of dissent, no matter how stupid or irritating it may be. Like the old saying goes, "I may not agree with what you say, but I'll fight to the death for your right to say it." (who said that?)

Cindy Sheehan is clearly bonkers. I'd probably go nuts too, if one of my kids died so young, so I'll tolerate her ranting.

In general, both the left and right in this country should tone it down a notch and respect the other side's right to a differing opinion. This "shout 'em down" mentality on both sides is un-American! We need to stop behaving like we're all on a never-ending episode of Jerry Springer!

It's too late to speak for Casey. He was killed in Bush's war based on lies. Cindy is speaking on behalf of those who don't want to die in an unjustified, immoral war.

Any of you would do the same in her situation. For example, if your own son or daughter joined a cult in good faith, and was later exploited and killed by that cult, you would want to expose the cult leader and warn others against him. Bush encourages young people to join the military and fight for his "noble cause." If it is so noble, why haven't his own children and family members joined? If it is so noble, why were the WMD lies necessary to promote it? Why does the US have to kill and maim hundreds of thousands of Iraqis to give them "freedom?"
