Subject: RE: BS: Ann Coulter scrapes bottom
It's all open to interpretation. Those who oppose any war effort are always slandered and called "traitors" by some of those who support that war effort. It's strictly a matter of opinion, depending on whether you approve of the war or not.

This was true in Nazi Germany, it was true in Great Britain, true in France, true in Japan and China, and it's true in the USA at present. It always happens when there's a war.

All those people who oppose various wars may or may not be seen as traitors by someone else...but they are not traitors to the one thing that counts for them: their own conscience!

And that is as true of Ann Coulter as it is of the 911 widows. They're both doing exactly what they think is the right thing to do, both logically and morally speaking, as they see it.

I find Ann Coulter totally distasteful, partly because of her generally vicious manner, partly because I disagree with her general view of things, but I recognize that like the 911 widows she is doing exactly what she thinks is the right thing to do, the thing that will improve society, the thing that will defend freedom....blah, blah, blah! The usual stuff. Just like everyone else. ;-)

So, I'm not going to ruin my day by being in a righteous rage about her all the time...just because she and I happen to disagree. I think she's mistaken. She would think I'm mistaken. And the world will keep turning regardless, and presently we'll both be dead.

In the meantime, it would be nice to enjoy life a little regardless of what Ann Coulter thinks, wouldn't it?
