    I would like to think that if the United States ever had an emergency situation of this type that other counties would be willing to help us. I am a christian, and in the bible it says do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Live by it.

    Addressed to Dadler: i think that you are a coniving little worm that deserves to lose everything that you own. How dare you criticize the man that is runnimg your country, the man that keeps all of us safe. If you haven't noticed everything he has used hid money on has benefitted the people of this nation. If you don't like it I'm sure that CUBA would like to have another citizen to oppress! Get over it Kerry lost, Bush IS the better man!
