    Sounds like WWS4EVER is happy that Bush has slaughtered hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraq people�just so�other counties�can think he is a bad a$$.I live outside the US, I know what the majority of foreigners think about the USA now. And no one, not ONE person I have met respects Bush and what he has done for the USA. Just to let you know.��

    �Even Bush gets it about Manny, when he quipped that "Manny's grandmother must have died again". Manny will be Manny and that is it and he will do whatever he wants whenever he wants to do it. However with that said, it is disrespectful for Manny not to go to see the wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Hospital. I don't care if he respects or doesn't respect Bush but to disrespect the soldiers who fight to keep the freedoms of this country free. That is just wrong.SHAME ON MANNY........AGAIN!!!!

    Those few left who actually support him will, in�2-3 years�time say they never did, just as they lied during Nixon's anti-American administration, just as Reaganites lied about their vote after he sold weapons to Iran under the table to pay for a war in Nicaragua that the American people said they didn't want.� Look it up.A Well actually this is one of the more ASININE hoaxes that our press pulled on the American people and got them to accept.Here is what happened... We took parts for the F-14, F-15 series A,B planes and sold them to the IRANIAN gov't.� Those parts were NO LONGER USEABLE for the US military, Our planes had been modified 3-5 times.� SO what truly happened was that we sold SCRAP metal garbage to an ENEMY and used the proceeds to assist in the funding of a fledgling democracy in our own hemisphere?� The people said they did not want us to support a fledgling democracy in our own hemisphere, or they voted against INCREASING the war effort?�� AT LEAST GET IT RIGHT!� I thought that it was actually a COUP... we sold junk to an enemy... and used the cash to help someone we wanted as an ALLIE.� I guess it is just you looking at it from your side of the fence and me thinking HONMELAND SECURITY is #1 and we do not want an ENEMY at our door in South America.... I understand where the HATE AMERICA FIRST crowd does not take that approach! The Clinton administration handed W a report warning that bin Laden was planning an attack against us. NO HE DIDN'T!� BTW; he had syria hand him UBL on a platter and he refused.� HE had credable intelligence that UBL (AL-QUADA ) was in Pakistan when the COLE was hit...... what did he do.... That is right, he aided and abetted UBL's escape!� SO after refusing to attack to retaliate for the COLE, and after refusing to allow SYRIA to hand him over.... Clinton handed the ball to "W"?.... LOL!�� I am sure that earned YOUR respect! The BS story about Clinton having a shot at Osama and choosing not to, that was a made for TV movie on ABC, not the real world.REALLY?, then why did the Clintons fight so hard to prevent the "STORY" from being told?� LOL� YEP, because it hit too close to home and made them look like the asinine conniving sons of bitches.. sell outs that they are. Now that is TREASONIST! BTW; how do you feel about the fact he allowed Khobar towers to be attacked and COLE to be sunk without any reprisal?� Maybe you should get away from accepting�the MEDIOTS as GOSPEL, you certainly are looking like a FOOL!��LOOK IT UP. If you dispute that, you're either a liar, or simple. Do the homework. Listening to people spewing hate on the radio doesn't count as research.Mental Midget, YOU need to talk to someone who has been their and stop watching NBC! I can't call you a liar, you are just too ignorant to know the truth! We all support our troops.NO YOU DON'T.. YOU want to claim that you do as REAL AMERICAN's would hate you if you admitted your feelings..... but you don;t support anything but a free ride for yourself! �Most of us are angry at anyone who would put them in harm's way in Iraq, when they SHOULD BE IN AFGANISTAN TRACKING DOWN OSAMA BIN F!CKING LADEN.�There you go.... YOU support them "IF" you can decide what they do.... YOU do not have the info that their leaders do but YOu can decide what is right and wrong.... Just like you think BARAK is a good leaer when you have NO details about his promisses either....If they need to find UBL.. they should just ask the Clintons they have been tellign him where to hide for a decade..... LOOK IT UP!

    Sounds like WWS4EVER is happy that Bush has slaughtered hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraq people�just so�other counties�can think he is a bad a$$.Apparently you went to a school that didn't believe in the reading rwrighting and adrithmentic fundamentals..... YOU missed several lines that say I am not happy with WAR. and do not like the fact we are there.... KEEP TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT... I also believe that being there is a GREATER GOOD! DO I like the fact so many IRAQUI died?... NOPE!� I also did not like SADAAM killing more than 100,000 of them... or taking people from their homes in the night and making them evaporate..... DID YOU HAVE MORAL OUTRAGE THEN?� Didn't think so! AGAIN I have failed to see leftists complain about the fact there have been no attacks on US SOIL since 9/11. I live outside the US, I know what the majority of foreigners think about the USA now. And no one, not ONE person I have met respects Bush and what he has done for the USA. Just to let you know.GREAT... now why don;t you HONESTLY tell us how the rest of the world looked at American's before BUSH?�� HONESTLY!� WEAK, COMPLACENT, NOT A GOOD ALLIE... LAZY , POMPOUS ARROGANT SPOILED BRATS.... Keep going... You can take it from here.� In 1996 (Clinton in office) we pulled into a port in France and all hands were required to remove any item of clothing that would mark them as from the USA.... WHY?Look some of you need to admit that the HATRED of America is not a new phenomenon.. it is very old! I am not even sure that I respect BUSH.. so how is that?� I do respect the fact that he has not allowed us to be attacked.... and I do not believe he is the cause for everything bad in this country....DO any of those countrymen you say do not respect BUSH refuse the American subsidies of the low priced food sold to their country?��� I thought NOT! �It is called ENVY.. YOU have more than me therefore you are bad.... We have it in our very own counttry... HOW many people hate the Rich- because they have more they should be forced to give more of it as handouts.� We do it ourselves why shouldn;t we expect the rest of the world to do it also?��

    I think wwsf4ever is a paid troll. I think it is that strange dude SeanGar or a co-worker. They can't even leave the sports boards alone. Obviously Bush is a ####. He's at 19% popularity. Karl Rove had Don Siegelman put away for political affiliation. These are war criminals. There's the proof and whatnot, but paid fakes like this will spam away.Hehehehe... are you even on this earth?� IS your intelligence level higher than that of a ZIT?� COngress has an 11% rating, and the DEMS in congress have a 9% approval rating.. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOU THAT?� I think the whole thing is a mess and it is not all BUSH's fault.� YOU PANZIES just want a fall-guy so that you can pretend you are better than the rest..... DUH!

    I wouldn't be surprised if Manny thinks GW is a censored explative. Those dudes from the Dominican, all nice from what I see, they live in the real world. They know Bush and all those criminals are scum. But this is a sports forum, so I'll can it. No matter what we say anyways, the paid disinfo will drown us out.DROWN YOU OUT?.. GOOD luck finding anything in the mainstream media that gives BBUSH any credit for anything.... YOU ARE THE A-holes drowning out realists!
    Everything they say is predictable. They follow a script.� I've studied these fockersStudied?� You cannot even read.. your 65 IQ means you definitely cannot comprehend.. YOU ARE A MEDIOT.... one of the idiots fed enough pablum from the media that you think it is gospel!

    If you make 75k and pay 35k into Social Security, State, and Federal Taxes, then it is pretty easy to do the math and see that this persons take home is 40k.� The people that you are saying paid 68% of taxes might make for example 900k a year.� After 97.5k they stop paying into Social Security which is paid out at 6.2% of income.� Even if these people pay 50% in taxes they still end up with between 400k and 500k.� Give me a freaking break.� There is definitely a difference between 40k and 400k.Are you having difficulty reading?... IT SAID THE TOP 10% OF EARNERS... I doubt that any of them made the 75K you chose to use...The numbers are a FACT.... in 1980 the top rate was 70% and that top 10% of earners paid 38% of all taxes KEPT by the gov't.�� THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT THEY TAKE OUT.... You get most of that back anyway.... IT HAS TO DO WITH WHAT THEY KEPT.In 2004 the numbers for the top 10% have dropped in % overall kept as in every person pays at a 40% rate..... but raised in the total % of the money not refunded. ALL THE WAY UP TO 68%.� IF the Rich are currently paying 68% of all the money that stays in the gov't coffers, WHY SHOULD THEY PAY MORE?� - because they have it is an asinine and very socialist view! Those numbers are right out of the IRS statistics..... NOW since you do not like it, BLAME BUSH for it!

    Firefligh,

    We all know that Manny is a "non-conformist" when it comes to doing certain things. Therefore, I am not surprised that Manny did this. However, listening to Dennis and Callahan this morning, they were upset with Manny for not visiting the injured troops at Walter Reed. To me, I sorta agree with them because it was a slap in the face for all those injured at Walter Reed. He can have a political agenda against the war and not like President Bush, but don't take it out on the wounded who fight to keep our freedoms and keep this country free. That was what this morning radio show was all about and Manny deserved to be raked over the coals for his disrespect as far as the Walter Reed patients are concerned.

    I think that all veterans current military people along with all those who have been wounded need and deserve our praise and thanks in keeping this great country of ours relatively safe and insuring that we, as a country, have the freedoms and rights that make this country the greatest country in the world. Say thank you and/or shake thier hands if you see them. Be respectful and honor the sacrifice they have given in putting themselves in harms way for us. They have deserved that right to be looked upon as heroes by us.

    Well said firefligh:Everyone is constantly looking for something on Manny.� He showed up on time this season, so lets look for something else.� It was even said by Luchino this morning that the trip was not mandatory..so why do we make a bigger issue of this than is needed?Those who say he "disrespected our troops" are the same people that tell me that, since I do not support the war, I do not support the troops.� I support our troops completely, as they have no choice in being over in Iraq, and they protect my freedom.� It is not their fault that they are fighting in a war for money and oil, they do as they are told, because that is what a good soldier does. To further support what Firefligh stated, Theo didn't go, and we all know he is not a supporter of Bush (he has all but stated this in interviews).� So his must be politically motivated, which is just as bad...yet no one says a peep about Theo.....These are the same people who scream to trade Manny every year, then when he starts mashing the ball in crunch time, they go out and buy their pink red sox hats.

    Willco, I don't have a problem with the premise of this article, because I believe that the entire team should have gone, if not to meet the President, then to at least participate in visiting the veterans.� However, my problem with this article is that it apparently singles out Manny for not attending & pays no attention to the fact that Tevarez & Theo also didn't attend.� They should be called out every bit as much as Manny.�

    I agree 100%!� If I were a member of the Sox i wouldn't have been there either. When the Sox go and meet Bush it is a personal low point for me as a fan. It would be nice if a whole team stood up and said NO but we know that will never happen. It is very dismaying that they would rather spend 15 minutes with an idiot that has brought this country to it's knees and done it with a smile on his face. Their time is better spent visiting the troops or homeless families in New Orleans. Whatever his reason, I applaud Manny.

Jdanko, if Bush asked you to drink the "Kool-Aid" would you?� I suspect you would.��I love this country, and that is the MAIN reason why I despise Bush so much.� he is destroying what little respect we have with the rest of the world.� But that must be country hating diatribe as well.� It is our duty, as Americans, to question our president when he is not acting responsibly.� I suspect you questioned Clinton when he was in office......you country hating, mindless, intolerant, right wing Nazi.� �

    Firefligh,I do think that Manny disrespected the troops when the rest of his team visited Walter Reed to give the the injured there a smile on thier faces and he decided to not attend. I don't know if he has an political agenda or not and really I don't care. However, how can a guy who is supporting one charity for the troops not attend a newsworthy visit to one of the more notable hospital for veterans in Walter Reed? It don't make any sense.....but then again Manny doesn't make any sense and logic with him is thrown out the window at times. You do raise a very good point though with Theo not attending also. Why hasn't the fans raked him through the coals like the ones Manny is being put through with the fans right now? Good point by you. Anyways, I guess the way to look at it is that Manny will be Manny and he will do what he wants to do...when he wants to do it.� Again, logic with the guy totally goes out the window at times and that drives the fans crazy.

I have advice for your inability to have any thread of initelligence: Your losing the battle.Well now you have shown how low your level of intelligence is.....� This is a statement not advice, SOCIALIST! �No one cares about the prejudices of your weak, sheltered mind. MAybe you should travel and see the world, and understand that you and your conservative minions are in the minority. Travel and see the world?.... YOU SO FUNNY FOOL!� Want to compare travels?� Want to compare the way people have always seen Americans as compared to their own country?�� YOU are such a fool....� I will compare our PASSPORTS any time you want to meet, and see who has the immmigration stamps for the most places.�� YOU LOSE! But alas, you again Matter - of- Factly spout YOUR SOCIALIST VIEW! America is a great country, but what makes it great is the diversity. I ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH THIS STATEMENT! ... Howevwer your CLOSED mind statements about the "Fly over Americans, and� calling people with different opinions show that YOU have the closed mind!
