Bake Sales

Bake Sales

From Kerry's convention speech: "You don't value families if you force them to take up a collection to buy body armor for a son or daughter in the service..."

The bake sales for body armor story has been debunked. But hey, I'm confused. What's all the fuss? I thought it was going to be a wonderful day when the Pentagon had to hold bake sales. Don't tell me this is another Democrat flip-flop!
As for John "Band of Mongols" Kerry, after he voted for the $87 billion for the Iraq war, he voted against it because it included no-bid contracts. Freedom from no-bid contracts wasn't in FDR's Four Freedoms, and it's not in any GI's list of "400 Freedoms I'm Fighting For".
I'd advise any soldier who is tempted to buy the "Help is on the way" blather to read the fine print, except that Kerry doesn't tell you what the fine print is until it's nuance time.
