Tim Robbins - ChickenDove

I was flipping through the channels last night and caught a few minutes of O'Reilly. Tim Robbins was talking with a reporter and didn't like the question he was being asked. He decided to turn the tables and told the reporter that he looked like he was at about the right age to volunteer to go to Iraq - the classic ChickenHawk argument. I've been called a ChickenHawk.

Well, Tim, you're a man of means and obviously have the resources to move to Iraq and live there after the troops leave - or any Middle Eastern, Islamic country you'd like. Why don't you do that? Why don't you live in a country with Sharia type laws?

Tim, unless you are willing to tell Susan Sarandon to shut up, quit working, wear a burka and deal with it while you take on a few more wives, you're just a ChickenDove. You're happy to condemn others to a life of poverty and restricted freedom, but not willing to live that way yourself.

Tim Robbins is a ChickenDove.

While I’m at it, Jane Fonda is a ChickenSocialist. With all the money she has, she could support a small country by herself. Give your money - all of your money - to the poor. Give them all the things that socialism promises and prove to me and the world that you are right. Take as many of the poorest people you can find and divide everything you have equally among them. Unless you are willing to do that, your opinion on Socialism isn’t valid.

Jane Fonda is a ChickenSocialist.

I think I'm beginning to like the ChickenHawk argument - since I'm not willing to go to Iraq and fight myself, my opinion on the war isn't valid. I agree - only people that are fighting the war should be allowed to have an opinion about the war. Turn over all the decision making to the military and keep everyone else out of it. If anyone wants to contribute to the discussion, they have to join the military.
