I'm going to go look for it. The part that rang true for me was the part of the post:

Let's get one thing straight -- this is what it means to be
"unpatriotic:"

1. When you shred our constitution and eliminate our civil
liberties, passing laws that make it illegal to encourage
opposition to the government's actions, THAT is un-American.

2. When you send our kids to go fight and die on a foreign land
so that you can finally build a pipeline for your oil backers
across that country, THAT is un-American.

3. When you use the dead of September 11 to try to get huge tax
cuts passed that will only benefit your rich benefactors, THAT is
un-American.

4. When you allow criminals who are stealing the pensions of
workers and retirees to come in and hand-pick the head of the
agency which is supposed to be regulating them, and then you
place some of the criminals' top brass in your administration to
"serve" as the secretary of the army and White House counsel,
and then these criminals turn out to be your number one financial
backers -- and their law firm turns out to be your #3 backer
-- and, in spite of all this you still haven't resigned in
disgrace, THAT is un-American.



I am offended to be an unwilling participant of war. I also find it offensive that the *fiscally conservative* republicans are erasing the national surplus with seemingly little thought. There are so many old white male practices going on right now, that I feel discouraged about the future. ~j
