    ANTI - WAR Protester

    Web Site " CARRY A BIG STICKER.com "
    Theres a guy - business guy selling several anti war items.

    He made up a T-shirt with all the casualties of Iraq, 2803 names up to
    Ocober 23, 2006.
    - its actually cool - I ordered 2, and it lists all the names - T-shirt reads on the front BUSH LIED and THEY DIED on the back, listing all casualties.
    This web site has several other items to purchase -
    Let me know if you find his web site interesting.

    Sorry computer stupid - I don't know how to forward,transfer etc.. you'll have to go directly to the site. It was on the news and may have to discontinue his t-shirts..?? He didn't get permission from all the families.?? I ordered

    Enjoy

    I hope he does have to discontinue the shirts. One reason it's really rude to make money off a fallen soldier's name. And two how's the family to feel to see their son's name on a shirt that's carrying a political message they may not follow.

    I hope the families of the fallen sue the man!

    I have never hidden the fact that I think that the reasons for going into Iraq were bogus and the true reason has more to do with a personal agenda of the current administration, but never in a million years would I ever support anything that might be seen by our troops and their families as less then supportive of THEM.

    Everyone should be very proud of the men and women at war to protect the US.
    And I'm sure the families are very proud, nearly 3000 casualties.

    This Anti-War guy probably falls between the Freedom of Speech, he'll probably have to discontinue making these T-shirts since he didn't get permission from all the families. Being sued - possible, then the guy can file bankruptcy and no one gets squat.

    This web site sells several anti-war items, I ordered 2 t-shirts to keep, not wear, I wanted all the names - and I don't care for Bush, and I don't agree with this war or sending more over to support this war.

    The t-shirts are similar to the POW bracelets, to preserve the memory of those who served & sacrificed everything.

    Um, no they're not. Ask a Vietnam Veteran what the POW/MIA issue means to HIM and tell me that statement is even in the same ballpark. This piece of $hit hawker's sole mission is to MAKE MONEY. He spotted a market and he zeroed in. If he was in my presence I'd bitchslap his stupid empty head and then turn him over to the Vets.
    And for this whole "war protesting" BS, when....WHEN, for the love of Christ are people going to wake up and realize that the soldiers who fight don't get to discuss, debate argue or even IMPLY disagreement with who and where they fight? It.....is.....their.....JOB, no questions, no arguments.

    Sure this guy is a oppertunist - theres several out there.

    POW bracelets and this t-shirt that I bought - are similar to me - I still have my POW bracelet and I'll keep this t-shirt as well, right along with the FLAG that drapped my husbands coffin.

    My HUSBAND died serving this country - I have asked veterans their opinions.

    Every soldier I have ever known would much rather be remembered for the life that he lived and the things that he stood for then be a name on an anti-war t-shirt. And I have known a couple of soldiers - having been born on a military base, served in the military, married to a military man the first time we went into the Middle East and having been the good wife to a man that served in Iraq.

    POW bracelets are to remember those who have been taken prisoner and never found. Hardly the same and certainly not even close in comparison.

    And you're willingly lining his pockets and putting your money towards his actions. Which shows unequivocal support of those actions. Any Vet I know, be they blood relation or otherwise, wouldn't go near his crap with a ten foot pole. Decent save on the "similar to me" but it has nothing to do with the way the Vets I know think.
    I hope you cherish this sweet way of life, and I hope you know that it comes with a price.

    POW bracelets are made and worn to honor the names engraved on them. The tiny names on the T-shirt are used as decoration around the huge words "Bush Lied" and "They Died". It's no more honorable than American flag boxer shorts.

    The lettering is the same size as that on a penny, for Chrissakes.

    I'm a collector of stuff - Political items as well, good, bad & ugly.
    Perhaps I shouldn't of used the word "similar". was just a term.

    I know what the POW bracelets represent - I had several friends die during that war too.
