I am amazed by your highly intellectual and well-reasoned post, drinkingfool, where you tied in the phrase "A life is a life, dead is dead," with your original idea, that both Presidents ( I would assume you mean Bush and Johnson, though, as Johnson is dead, you can't really refer to him in present tense, can you?) are "dumbasses," and that the war is wrong. Really, it was tied in so well, I couldn't see how they were related!
Despite the fact that you never explained why they are "dumbasses."
Or why the war(you can only be referring to the current war, and not the Vietnam war as well, because of how you phrased it) is wrong.
And despite the fact that you sound like a "dumbass."
