No, it wasnt a fact. It's at 750, and the action is over a year old. That isnt quickly doing anything. Nor is it Bush's body count, as you claimed. You made your choice to join the military in the early 90s, as I made mine to join it in the mid 90s. There wasn't a draft in the early 90s, IIRC....so get off your high horse. Yea, you can protest any war u feel like. You can shit all over the troops, which is essentially what you do when you do that...bully for you. I in turn, may shit all over you for doing so. My dad spent time in Nam, my Grandad spent time in WW2, and Korea, earning a Purple Heart, and Bronze and Silver Stars. Kerry is an American hating piece of shit...Bush is not. This strategy you use, where you jump from federal, to state, and somehow try to blame Texas tuition rates on Bush by linking Perry to him is really lame, also. Your dumb ass tried to come on here, and present the most liberal Presidential candidate to run in 30 some odd years as the choice of the military by using antecdotal points...you got shot down, in a big way. You served the country, that's great...but ya weren't forced. I served my country, not at force, either...I don't feel like I am owed anything, by anyone. Your great hero J KErry has voted agaisnt every bill introduced to increase military spending...yup, the military will turn out in HORDES to support that asshat.

I apologize that I busted your conservative ego with a fact. Fact, we have over 600 people dead since this Iraq conflict began, the numbers are climbing and will continue too. If you think otherwise just wait a few months and we'll compare notes or shall I say count coffins. I have heard Rumsfeld on the news pointing out using soldiers from Korea/Pacific theatre to increase our troop numbers in the region. Also while you were slurping down beer, hanging with your frat brothers and chasing skirts down 6th street in the early 90's people like me and my friends were fighting in Iraq the first time. I have 50% disability through the VA and can damn well protest any war I feel like, I have fought in a couple, have you? I feel the same for Kerry if he came back from Vietnam and wanted to protest he had earned the right, do you know what it was like, my Dad spent 4 tours in Nam and he never spoke highly of anyone connected to it. Kerry has been to war, Bush has not and don't start squawking all the mess about who's military records say what. Bottom line is Kerry is a war veteran and Bush is not. You say Kennedy, I say Ashcroft each sided has it's own fireeater's. You complain about the democrats and their social programs well FDR was the reason our country was so successful in crawling out of the Great Depression back in the 30's. The most elite fighting unit we have today our Army Green Berets we're given the green light by JFK. Impress me tell me how the current administration plans to help our economy recover. Please don't say tax cut that is the reason our tuition rates just increased by oh 25% here in Texas thanks to Gov Perry. Unless you take something out of the equation a tax cut does nothing. It's like combining all your bills and freeing up $150 a month from your check then buying a new car that has payments $150 higher than your old one, you have done zero.
