Amen to that!

    Jennifer, Marine and Army wives - it is always frightening to hear how angry people get at people who are exercising their freedom of speech. You say your husbands/family members are "fighting for your freedoms" - but then you condemn those folks who try to use their freedom of speech.

    I respect your family members who are brave enough to fight for something they believe in. I do however, also support every Americans right to voice their own opinion and to not support what they believe is an unjust/unnecessary war.

    Not if it were ruled by Britney Spears-esque mothers… then we'd all be in for shit!
    But if it were ruled by moms like my mother, hell yeah, no problems at all.

    Re: Burn in hell – If you're going to use religion here, and she's against the war, do you think 'Thou shalt not kill' deserves a look here just a little more than two descriptive adjectives referring to the war as being damned by God?

    You know what, I love my country, but I soooo have to agree with you on this statement. How can America go try to "fix" a country in turmoil when theres sooo much turmoil going on right here! I love my country dont get me wrong, but I do not think our government is doing us justice. Look at our legal system for example, OJ Simpson gets away with murder and years down the road commits another crime of robbery, and puts out a book called "If I did it"..America needs another country to come over here and straighten our government out. I feel sorry for the armed services of America, they are over there dying for something they believe is right, when all along what are they fixing? They brainwash people into joining the military, making them think they will have this great life, but look at all the veterans that are homeless and a wreck for what they have seen and/or done. I know you Bush supporters dont like for anyone to say these sorts of things, and I am not mad at you for that, you are just unfortunate enough to think your president really cares for you. Sally Field was kind of right on with her statement, I do believe she could have said it differently though. But if we had so much freedom of speech they would not have censored her comment.

    Hey, you say that like you are so certain that you were told the truth about what happened on 9/11…How do you know 100% that it wasnt our wonderful government that cause those deaths? You dont know that, you have no proof of it being anyone. So until you know 100% that it happened the way our government said it did and within our government, just dont assume anything ok.

    SALLY, I USED TO LIKE YOU. PLEASE MOVE TO CANADA. JUST LEAVE. THEY DESERVE YOU!

    I WILL NOT FIT INTO YOUR STEREOTYPE OF A CONSERVATIVE:
    I AM A MOTHER, I AM A REPUBLICAN, I HAVE GAY FRIENDS, I ATTEND CHURCH, I LIKE TO GO OUT WITH MY HUSBAND AND OUR FRIENDS AND HAVE A FEW DRINKS AND DANCE EVERY NOW AND THEN, AND I WOULD STOP THE WAR RIGHT NOW BY DROPPING A BIG FAT NUKE ON THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST (BEING VERY SURE TO SPARE ISRAEL).

    The Emmy's is not a "stage" for political (and it was political) views. Take your damn award. Thank GOD. Your family. And then leave. There is a REASON for this war. Speculate all you want…it wont stop it. All you celebrities and bloggers and who ever has a widely seen media outlet can bash the war. Talk bad about our President. And so on…but it means nothing…obviously! You don't vote. Bush was re-elected. And do you want to know why? Because his supporters vote. And there will be another republican in office next. It's going to happen. So go on with your bad self. But it means nothing in the end. All your "awarness" means nothing.

    Well let's see - the ratings are down by 20%… probably because 50% of the American public do NOT agree with these liberal hags and their rantings and their using the podium as a literal soapbox to ram their views down our throats. This is supposed to be entertainment - not a bunch of Commie libs and their bilge. By the way, did this ditz forget about Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi, etc. And they want women in the military? Then why, if they supposedly don't believe in war. These people are unbelievable.

    336

    Re: jesse – If you knew "Regulations of the Military" you would not make such stupid remarks. Start reading the Code of Conduct for Military and further the "Regulations" - especially where it starts talking about a soldier that hits the 10 year mark - then further the education process on Chapter 15's and learn what happens if you disobey a command - Federal Prison - JackAss! So lets weigh this: have to go to war because I am on orders and commanded to do so (not b/c I actually "choose" to go and look forward to missing my wedding anniversary, kids birthdays, Christmas, Thanksgiving or any other "normal day" when I am needed or disobey a command and possibly go to prison - get back to me when you are in those predicaments and then judge her husband.

    LEXINGTON, Kentucky (AP) — A retired Roman Catholic priest who admitted molesting three altar boys in 1995 was found beaten to death at his home, police said Saturday.

    Joseph Pilger, 78, was found dead in his home Friday night. An autopsy Saturday found the cause of death to be multiple blunt force injuries, according to the Fayette County coroner. The death is being investigated as a homicide

    WASHINGTON — Frustrated by delays in health care, a coalition of injured Iraq war veterans is accusing VA Secretary Jim Nicholson of breaking the law by denying them disability pay and mental health treatment.The class-action lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, filed Monday in federal court in San Francisco, seeks broad change in the agency as it struggles to meet growing demands from veterans returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan.

I'll take my chances with God than with you spiteful, ignorant, hateful, folks on your way to hell (not you Oxford) just addressing some of the other comments I've recieved from fuck religion and YOU and manhattan who are more than likely the same idiot posting under different monikers lol

    Anyone who believes her words deserved to be censored because she took the "Lord's" name in vain, which according to post is "all that is wrong with America" and why "we're going to hell in a hand basket," is completely ridiculous to me. Religion, past and present, is responsible for more genocide and hatred in the world than any other justification ever given. Religion doesn't have to be negative, and for a lot of people, I'm sure, it provides a decent moral framework to live within. However, it IS NOT the best, and CERTAINLY is not the only place from which a person draw a values system. It is an excedingly base view of human nauture to asume that the only reason we don't run around killing each other and banging our neighbors is b/c the Bible tells us not to. Literature, philosophy, art and life experience are, for any thinking human being, more reliable and balanced sources to draw from than any text, dogma or institution claiming infallibility.

FACT: wars have been around since the creation of man and will continue until the end of time. SAD, but true! It's in the Bible - I know you democrats don't believe in God or religion but try reading the Bible! There are just as many evil mothers in the world as there are men!

    Sally Field's speech or any other part of the show was not censored up in Canada. Apparently they bleeped out the words "god damned". Can you imagine someone hearing the words "god damned". The whole world could have exploded. People could have lost lives. The horror. Fox and the right wing are so fucking uptight and hypocritical. Not everyone believes in God. Why don't they bleep out the word God every time someone says it so not to offend atheists and agnostics?

    Re: History 101
    You obviously know nothing about Indian history. "East Pakistan," as you called it, was one of the most war-torn, impoverished places on earth in the 1970's. Bangladeshis were starving in the streets, forced to speak Urdu (the dialect spoken in the "West"), had their landscape (and people) raped by Pakistanis….who lived thousands of miles away. The India-Pakistan war, which led to Bangladesh's much deserved indepdence can hardly be compared to Iraq.

    What, may I of you clearly enlightened souls, IS the proper stage to express your political beliefs?
    It hurts me, as an outsider (I am Canadian), to know that you, as a people, have been denied the truth about the world. For so many Americans, your entire world view (which is completely false) is shaped by lies. You're defined by a "with us or against us mentality."
    WHY ARE YOU SO THREATENED BY IRAN? HAVE YOU EVER MET AN IRANIAN? AN IRAQI? A NORTH KOREAN? Have you shared a meal with these people, or had a conversation about family, or music, or what drives them? THEY ARE NO DIFFERENT THAN US! What you fail to see, is that like you, they are being led by an incompetent pack of fascists!
    DID IRAQ THREATEN THE WELFARE OF AMERICANS?
    AND WHY, WHY, WHY ARE YOU ALLOWED TO CARRY "weapons of mass destruction," while those who carry nuclear weapons are forced, through bloody and unjust wars, to disarm. HIPOCRISY AT ITS HEIGHT!
    Are you morally superior, allowing only you to carry such weapons, built only to assure the complete destruction of life?
    I just don't understand how people can be so narrow minded. TRAVEL. READ. EDUCATE YOURSELF. TURN OFF THE FUCKING TELEVISION.

    Middle eastern women had more rights and freedoms in the early 20th century than did American women (and Blacks, and Natives). Burqas were virtually unheard of, limited mainly to rural areas. If you knew anything about history, you'd realize that extremist Islam only gained power in the 70s and 80's as a response to American hegemony via military force. Iran, Egypt, Syria, Afghanisitan, Iraq….read up on it. Iranian women could vote long before American women.
    If it weren't for the American obsession to "save the world" from communists back in the day, alot of these problems wouldn't have arisen in the middle east.

    Sally is a hoot. She always speaks her mind, in character and in real life. I deeply respect someone who is real, whether they are wrong or right. On that note, she may be an "actress" but that doesn't make her an idiot. I support the troops, in that I don't want them to die, but I don't support the war.
    What is up with someone's comment about equaliting liberalism with gayness? Firstly, there is NO correlation. You are very ignorant to believe so. There are plenty of homo republican elected officials (Craig). Secondly, we "liberals" are not offended by being called "gay" because there is nothing wrong with being so in the first place.

    I live in Australia and it wasn't censored, her whole speech was shown. She basically got a standing ovation for her comment.

    Re: Burn in hell – I agree that there are more comments which aim disrespect towards the religious, but I don't think this was Field's intent, unlike Griffin's comment. Field was taking aim at the war, because it feels like another Viet Nam, and like the Dems have rolled over. The more discontent about the war, the more billions it costs the ordinary taxpayers, the more people die on both sides, then the more high profile people feel an obligation to publicly throw themselves on the fire and speak out, as no one with any political clout seems to be. Things are not good when it gets to that point that Sally Field, a mere actress with access to a very large public forum, feels a need to say something to try and effect some kind of a reversal to a mired and questionable political situation. She absolutely knows it's not her area, and absolutely realizes there will be public backlash & reprisal. You're right about the hell in a handbasket bit.

    Go Sally? Amen? So true? Didn't you lemmings hear her stuttering and rambling like a drugged crackhead w/ Tourrette's?? That was more embarrassing than her "you like me… you really like me!"

    Sally is RIGHT! I have always lover her!
    I have 3 boys, am surrounded by TESTOSTERONE! There would be no wars if women ruled the world. I don't understand the censorship of her statement at all. You can support our troops and NOT support war.

    No instead we'd have a bunch of world leaders on PMS ready to push the button to launch a nuke every month because someone looked at them funny.

    No one backstabs like women can. The world would be a right fucking hole if women ruled. Bitchness and whining would be the order of the day. They should stick to the only talent afforded them and thats cleaning and cooking. Otherwise they should shut there silly little pie holes. No woman has the talent for anything else really.

    Margaret Thatcher's a mother and she declared on Argentina and Indira Ghandi wasn't scared to kill her enemies. It depends on the the individual woman.

    No offense to women seriously. But if one type of woman ran or ruled the world there would be major kaos and war. Women hold grudges and or more emotional then men. When it comes to an argument men fight or talk about it and get it over with. Women hold grudges for forever. When emotion is brought into it, it collides with the grudge and all hell breaks loose. I know a lot of women say "Thats not true" but if you sit back and rationally think about it it will make sense. And as for her saying this on TV there is no point. Thats not what she is there for. If she wants to debate or talk about that type of stuff she should pay for her own air time. She is there to except an award, say thank you and leave. Its really simple.

    Funny how the left talks so much about the horrors of censorship, yet are the pioneers of political correctness which is censorship in every sense of the word.

    If you believe the anti-woman tripe on here, and if YOUR woman holds a grudge, with some of the forum's attitudes, I can certainly understand why…and as for the PMS/hormonal argument, (it's widely known that men have mid-life crises too), it ultimately DOESN'T apply to Hillary. I'm sure she's gone through menopause. Nice try. What would Condoleeza Rice say about it?
    Most women build & nurture life long friends (examine yours) and alliances, and are collaborative, and they respect life because they put the sweat equity in raising it. That's not to say they don't step up to the plate to a REAL threat. (Underline REAL.) The arguments are empty, and so 40 years ago, & laughable. Thatcher wasn't called The Iron Maiden/Iron Lady for nothing.

    That is so stupid, and NOT very true. See, I'm a Mother, of 3 children, 6, 4, and 3 and the truth of the matter is I totally agree with what Patricia Heaton said. The world wouldn't be "war-free" if it was run by mothers. It would be wars and chaos just the same, cause some bitch opens their mouth about your kids or something, and you have to lay the smackdown.

    So, let me get this straight-we're supposed to bow down in thanks to the troops for protecting our freedom of speech (which was somehow threatened by Iraq?), but we're just not supposed to actually USE our freedom of speech.

    Didn't a United States Senator from New York, who is also a mother of a lovely daughter, vote for the war? Sally Field is full of crap!

    Why do so many righty-tighties read this blog? Is that why Perez wished the jews a happy holiday, but not to Muslims for Ramadan?

    Mothers, fathers, brothers - WHATEVER. If you're in your DAMN RIGHT MIND, you would know NOT to wage a war for NOTHING.
