Once again, I shamelessly lifted something [with permission, of course] from a fellow traveler's blog.
This came from franIAM. Check her out, why don'tcha?
Here are the House districts throughout the country whose majorities are in favor of staying- the- course in Iraq.
HELLO, PEOPLE!!! Other people are dying while you remain complacent. Since you're so gung-ho, why don't YOU grab your body armor, suit up and get your asses to Iraq?!?
The numbers break down as follows: 12% want to increase the number of troops [Where will we get them, one wonders? Perhaps this 12% will volunteer?] 15% want to maintain the current troop levels [Oh, yes! Since this 'strategy' is working SO well!] 7% are unsure how to proceed [Well, at least they admit to being clueless.] 30% want to decrease the number of troops on the ground [While their hearts may be in the right place, it seems, to me, a futile move. The ones who are there now are overwhelmed -- how can FEWER do anything at all -- other than act as targets?] And 36% want to pull out completely.
Oh, and here's the map for the Senate:
Way to go, Utah!
So, a note to the rest of us. Check out how your reps and senators are voting. Obviously, if they're not clamoring for a pullout, they're ignoring their constituents and deserve to be benched -- unless, of course, you're one of the 36% who are ready to lay YOUR lives on the line-- in which case, get your butts to Iraq! NOW!
