Waterboarding and Waders

I ain't got no blog (IAGNB) posted an off-topic comment on my blog.
I replied to it on the blog he doesn't have, commenting on the only post that appears there...

The comment I offered: I Ain't Got No Blog: IF YOU MUST SAY SOMETHING (Not officially a moderated blog, but likely to be disposed of after the fact. Posted APRIL 22, 2009 8:38 AM, IAGNB time):

In reply to an off topic comment posted elsewhere.

Read it or don't, my friend...

IAGNB sez:In all cases, of Waterboarding interrogation methods, that were used.

That's not even a sentence... ...even if it does have a period at the end.

They ALL gave up valuable information within seconds of being waterboarded.
And saved American lives!!

Citation please?

YOU liberals better wake up to the facts of life in the real world, and understand that there are people out there who hate and want to kill Americans, no matter how much the current president apologizes and tries to appease them, no matter how many Kings he bows to, no matter how many tin horn south American dictators he jokes with and plays second fiddle to.

Of course there are... And throughout almost all of our American history, we have responded to those who wish to kill us without torturing them. Instead, we have taken the high road and maintained those values that make America worth fighting for in the first place. When we Americans haven't lived up to our values, later Americans have done what they could to apologize for the mistakes, and vowed to do better. That is also a trait that makes our American way of life worth defending.

I'm sorry you don't agree with the actions the current president is taking. I felt the same about the last one. Shit happens. Rather than whining about it, perhaps you might consider offering real solutions, or finding someone who can among those who share your political and social views.

Off topic commentary on liberal blogs may be fun for you, but it isn't going to get you or your ideas and ideals anywhere...
