Re: Offended by anti-war Bug!

I would like to say that I was not offended by the VW Bug, in
fact I do believe it deserved a place of honor in an Independence
Parade. It was truly demonstrating an independent viewpoint
from the majority of citizenry of our fair town. Is this not
a lovely thing?
Ms. Inouye states that without killing people of other nations
"we would not have the freedom and independence to celebrate."
Perhaps this is true, perhaps not, she appears to believe it
is true, so why does she then go on to say "Bottom line:
they should have NEVER been allowed to partake in our 4th of
July parade." With this statement she is disrespecting
the very values she claims our fighting men and women are killing,
and dying for, this appears to me to show a blatant disregard
for the hard and dirty work our troops are engaged in. She needs
to support our troops, and one of the ways a person supports
our troops is by honoring the values they are fighting for, not
by whining about freedom being exercised.
Perhaps she should read the 'Declaration of Independence' itself,
and decide whether America is actually on the path that the writers
of this document would have wished.
