I am a huge Goo Goo Dolls fan
who has seen them in concert many time and will travel anywhere
to get a glimpse of those handsome faces ;) But I must say,
every time they make a RUDE statement re: President Bush or
the Iraq situation, they turn me off a little bit more each
time. Yes, we all have our right to "freedom of speech"
and no, I am not saying they should agree with the President
and his doing. But to say that he is a "MF" or things
of the sort is not only offensive towards our current administration,
but it also offends the hundreds of thousands of fans that
support and admire President Bush, (after all, he had the
courage to do what no other man has had the courage to do
before: to give the Iraqi people the opportunities they deserve,
not to live under a rule of tyranny and horror).
No, I do not particularly care for and/or support war. As
a member of a military family, I have many relatives and friends
that put their necks on the line and fight for the simple
American ideals that keep this land so great: LIBERTY AND
JUSTICE FOR ALL. Did the Iraqi’s have Liberty and Justice
prior to our involvement? I don't think so. I feel and pray
for the lives of all the innocent people that are getting
caught up in the middle of this horrible situation. But I
know God will guide us through this.
It drives me absolutely up the wall to hear statements in
the media from superstars that personally attack President
Bush. Just because these people have the money to do so does
not mean that they have the right to shove their views about
how right or wrong the President is (or is not) down my throat.
The only request that I am making to these people (Goo’s
included) is to respect my right as an American to believe
what I want to believe. If they want to make a public statement
about their personal views that is absolutely fine, just do
it in a way that is professional, collected, adheres to the
facts (of agreement or disagreement)… and for crying
out loud, do you really have to resort to name calling??
Finally, I ask everyone to SUPPORT OUR TROOPS (regardless
of your personal views on the war) PLACE your trust in God
(or whatever higher deity you believe in) PRAY for the innocent
people in Iraq and for the
restoration of PEACE all over the globe LONG LIVE PRESIDENT
I think that if some of you hippies would have
faith in God that He will lead us through this, then it would
be alot easier for you. I agree with Katie and Vic on this...we
did the right thing over in Iraq. Those people have never
seen what freedom is and we gave that to them. God Bless America!
sorry but I think we should go to war The GGDs can think what
they want but I support the president more than I do a band1and
plus I thought the goos were a band not politicians! I support
the president! George W. Bush rocks! --Vic
don't not support peace, but to be a strong country we can't
back down! I also think George W. Bush is doing a great job
as president! --Katie
I just want to share with ya'll what the Bible says about
Eccl.3:8: "a time for war and a time for peace"
Ps. 24:8: "Who is the king of glory?The Lord strong and
mighty, the Lord mighty in battle."
Joel 3:9,10: "prepare a war, let the swords draw near.
Beat your plowshres into swords, and your pruning hooks into
Heb.11:33,34 "those who by faith conquered kingdoms,escaped
the edge of the sword, became mighty in war put foreign armies
Those are just a few verses I found and I think we should
all think about what they are saying. I also want to mention
that there were alot of occurances of war in the Bible. God
wanted to destroy the evil. I think that is what we are doing
with the war going on today. We are destroying the evil and
the ungodly. --Vic
note: the bible also says things like, "Thou Shalt Not
Kill" and "Love Thy Neighbor." If we're in
the business of destroying evil, what about the innocents
that accidentally perish beside the evildoers? Perhaps we
should ask ourselves that well-marketed question, "What
Would Jesus Do?" If I remember my comparative religion
class correctly, Jesus was all about peace and love.
Webmaster: And if I rememeber the Bible correctly the commandment
is"thou shalt not MURDER" we aren't murdering we are PROTECTING!
And we are helping Iraq also. They will be alot better off
when we get done. You can't seem to understand that! --Vic
response to April's Question of the Month HELL YEAH! Because
MOST Americans are smart enough to know that this war was
the only choice. And MOST people support BUSH and OUR TROOPS!
ATLEAST SUPPORT THE TROOPS!!!!!!!!!!! It is sad that they
have to hear that there are peace protests saying that they
shouldn't be fighting. That is making YOU anti- American!
So yes, most of us Americans support this war because there
are legitimate reasons for it and we know that the American
way is to help and protect. Have a peaceful day! --Vic
I think that the peace protesters that say this war is for
OIL are one...freakin' stupid, two...they are anti-American
because how does that make the troops feel when they are over
in Iraq fighting for freedom for the Iraqi people and you
are saying that they are just over there fighting for oil!
