    The people that prohibited this guy from speaking on Independence Day, after all that this man has been through to guarantee their freedom, should be removed from their posts.

    I wanted to add this poem that he read as well..

    This article boiled my blood.... while if you read the entire story, Denton has some pretty far fetched thoughts (the sexual abuse in marriages if true is pretty sickening), but thats politics.

    this man sacrificed 8 years as a POW in Vietnam being tortured and was prohibited from speaking simply because he was a Republican and had differing views is just moronic.

    That's kind of my take. I read the entire SNOPES bit, but they should have let him talk on the 4th! With the understanding he stayed on topic.

    Exactly.. they could have even required he submit an outline of his speech, whatever.

    and I'll add, Kudos to Ahnold for swooping in and organizing a celebration of his own and asking Denton to speak. The more I hear of his politics, the more I like him as a politician. :clap:

    Yeah, I would have traded The Mind for The Governator any day...the only reason I voted for Jesse was because I know/knew his wife, and him personally, and I really thought that he would do a good job, even though he was and still is an ass.

    I was actually just reading an article after I posted this yesterday that said that Arnold and John Kerry are good friends and that Arnold will not actively campaign for President Bush outside of California. Apparently Kerry and Arnold do family outings together, boating, skiing, etc., and have been friends for years.

    Anyone else hear this?

    I see how it is. I guess they only want them to speak when they agree with them. I also find it odd how they will probably support Kerry since he's a fellow Democrat and his military service will be one of their reasons even though Kerry was never a POW, served for a few months, and came back and accused veterans of committing atrocities on a massive scale.
