Two Americas

Disgusting, reprehensible behaviour from a judge. I think John Edwards is right- there are two Americas, but his mistake is that they aren't divided along lines of wealth, but in love of their great country. Here's a classic example of just that-

In denying the Royal High School student delayed entry into the Marine Corps, Children's Court Commissioner Marilyn Mackel reportedly told Sage and a recruiter that she didn't approve of the Iraq war, didn't trust recruiters and didn't support the military.

But don't question her patriotism, right?

His foster parents, as well as his social worker, supported his decision to enlist early. Despite being denied, he still shows up for USMC physical training.

"Did they ever kick my butt," he said proudly. "They still do."

When he turns 18 he will join up. Unlike the judge, this young man is a credit to his nation.
