On Halloween, all types of idiots and half wits come out from the woodwork and seem to be everywhere. Yup, that’s right, John Kerry made an appearance at a left wing hippie college in California and gave a speech on education. But what he said was completely out of line. In a nutshell, he stressed the importance of education saying that if you take your classes seriously, and do your homework and make an effort to be smart, you will make something out of your life and if you don’t you will get “stuck in Iraq.”
I have more respect and admiration for the men and women who have the courage to serve our country than for anybody that has a degree. It takes a much bigger person to be willing to die for his country than it does to drink mocha lattes and show up to class for 4 years. What John Kerry said is a slap in the face to all the men and women who have served, and who are selflessly serving our county, as well as to their families. I have my big brother and a really good friend over there right now and they have made more of themselves than I ever can with a piece of paper saying I’m educated. I feel personally offended by what John Kerry said, as well as outraged as an American. Even if you don’t support the war, support the troops. It’s not their fault they are over there, they are doing their job and we should be grateful there are heroes like that to protect us and our way of life. John Kerry is a disgrace to this county, and a traitor. It’s as simple as that.
