I love a good conspiracy theory, but I am leaning towards QVC on this one. Do people really threaten to boycott QVC for something like this? Enough people to make them actually care? I kind of have a hard time believing that that many people are still so enraged that they could cause QVC to cancel her appearance. Maybe I'm in the dark!?

To the people who still get annoyed over Jane's actions forty-five years ago... tell me about forgiveness, and when do you let it go? You don't wish to read her book? Great. Don't read it. Boycotting QVC, and QVC backing down? Whatever.

Isn't QVC the home shopping network?

I don't listen to Beck, so no worries. Would I boycott him or anyone else over something said 45 years ago? No.

I don't know how old you are, but I came of age in those years. More than half this country was opposed to the war. In 1967, most supported the war, but by 1969, most opposed. Was her decision a wise one? No. Do I hate her for it? No.

There are people on the left I do not care for. There are people on the right I do not care for. I don't much care for Bachmann's hubby messing with the minds of people, causing more damage...but I don't hate him. I don't care for the rubbish that Murdoch publishes and broadcasts, nor how he goes about obtaining information...but I don't hate him. If someone wants to interview him on air, go for it.

I can't believe people even give a crap about her anymore. Well, she did support our enemy. I remember a photo of her on a NV anti aircraft gun, which is really pretty bad. She probably deserved a firing squad when she came back. Today? I guess if I saw her on the street, I'd probably punch her in the face.

So, when you think about it, she's pretty much a piece of crap.

Exactly. I protested that awful useless war that destroyed lives, too. How she chose to speak out was unwise, grossly misunderstood, but it's over. Long over. Patriots also speak out when they see their gov't going down the wrong path, causing death and mayhem. The original intent of that war was perhaps good, but the gov't screwed it all up and misdirected it, totally underestimated the kind of war it was and the enemy they were fighting. Harmed it's own soldiers. Ordered the massacred of villages. All the whole ugly mess. Others here also spoke out and protested. College students were shot for protesting. It was an ugly ugly time. She was famous so took the heat. And people keep wanting to punish her for speaking out? People need to get a life. :smileyindifferent: She did and has accomplished a lot in her career since then. Why still bring up the controversy after all the years, for people too young to really understand what those awful times were like, the issues, and still make her the villain she never was in the first place? Just another stupid tempest in the teapot. Her book will still sell without being on that stupid mindless drivel channel. Who cares? LOL! :D

There are just some things that should not be forgotten, you don't seem to have forgotten anything about those times in reguard to the war. So, I can see why a lot of people will never forget her actions either.

This is long, but it is Jane's personal account of what transpired on her trip to Vietnam. IMO, it feels like the truth, and on a lot of levels, makes the most sense.
