Hmm, well, again, the soldiers did not volunteer (most of them) to go to war.. they volunteered to join our military, probably *not* thinking that there was going to be a war.. but, regardless.. there is, and they're in the military and they're stuck, so whether they signed on for war or not, they did, indeed, sign on for the military.
I think the biggest issue with the war is that it *is* talked about every single day.. but some of the things they don't cover is civillian life, and what sorts of ravaging effects this really is having over there, and, IMO, that is probably what Rosie is getting at.
Like I said before.. I think my cats are every bit as important as humans, whether that's right or wrong in anyone else's book..that's just the way it is.. so I understand where everyone is coming from.
In any case.. don't let her get to you. Most people's opinions here is that she's not noteworthy at this point in time due to her actions, so..why worry about what she says or does? She's not really in a position to affect our lives in any way. She doesn't hold an office, and .. hehe, if this thread is any indicator.. she's not particularly popular so she shouldn't have too much influence. It was a pretty insensitive and infuriating thing for her to say, but.. no point in worrying about it, I guess.
Kelly clarified in her original post that she was not making a reference to Rosie's weight, but to her big mouth... but there have been a few other comments that weren't so clarified. As far as that goes.. her opinions have absolutely nothing to do with her weight, unless they're directly related to weight prejudice matters or other weight-related issues. But I do understand the getting mad about something and striking out at the first thing you can think of about the person that's making you mad. I've certainly done it.
(Unless, of course, you consider that I'm fat... and therefore have *plenty* of space to store all of my *excessive* opinions, hehe. Fortunately though, I'm not motivated to get in shape or lose weight, so... I'll have plenty of space to continue storing all my opinions to continue to post on TCS!)
