    I heard it from someone - not direct from any 'news' source - if that is what they cover -

    A man who apparently knew someone killed in 9/11 is so upset that Bush is using 9/11 in his camp. that he was quoted as saying he would rather vote for Saddam Hussein than Bush.

    Is this true?

    Did some 'man' really make such a deadly statement?

    That is the same as stating one would vote for Adolf Hitler or Osama Bin Laden as president...the very people who killed someone he apparently knows, he would be happy as leader of this land...

    Have Americans lost all sense completely? Where are the brain cells? Stupidity...maybe some non Americans were correct in stating many Americans are stupid...they really are stupid.

    I did see a reference to the same thing in a Wall Street Journal piece:

    Americans are too spoiled. They have no idea what life is like elsewhere.
    Stating something like that, aside from its great stupidity is as mentioned an insult to all. An insult to those killed in 9/11, our troops, and Saddams own victoms.

    He is a killer.

    Perhaps voting for Charles Manson will satisfy this person also. Or perhaps this person should pack their belongings and leave America. I am sure they can find another country where they live happily under the iron fist of another Saddam or Adolf or Stalin..name them.

    Well said Winston, I can understand if people have different beliefs than people who support Bush, but to say something as ridicules as voting for Saddam rather than Bush is just absurd. And I really doubt it helps support their position they want to promote. Only gives fodder for media outlets such as Al Jazeera.

    They ought to find the Jackass who said this and either charge him with treason or strip him of his citizenship and ship his ass out. Free speech be damned that is way over the line akin to calling somebody's mom a 2 dollar whore.

    Excuse me - but calling somebody's mom a 2 dollar whore is free speech.

    If we do what you suggest, the terrorists have fun.

    They have fun planning to Kill people.

    Free Speech? Sure...but a taking a swift punch in the mouth would then be 'freedom of expression' right?

    You must have no capacity for self-responsibility.

    It may be free speech in that you are not going to be jailed for it but in my social circle you'd lose a few teeth and be out 3,000 for the dental work that will be needed.

    This was my point that there are certain things that decorum says you keep your mouth shut and this is one of those cases. At the very least this guy should be publicly and harshly rebuked.

    I wasn't talking about the conspiracy to kill people. I was referring to the comment that he would rather vote for Saddam than Bush.

    That is protected speech.

    So someone saying something you do not like gives you the right to physically assault him?

    Nice.
