Can you imagine that if Georgie Boy had been injured in the National Guard and the N.G. had deployed to Iraq I wonder if the President Bush the first would have allowed the conditions that we now see at Walter Reed hospital

This yellow ribbon should read :“DOWN WITH THE DEVILS”.

One another ones should read “IN MEMORY OF O’REILLY & RUSH LIMBAUD”.

The yellow ribbon should read: USE, ABUSE AND DISCARD!
