Nice comeback...

Though the reason for the conflict in Iraq isn't what it once was and many, including myself, may still believe we had no business going there, you can't help but agree with this man's position:



One of my sons serves in the military. He is still stateside, here in

California. He called me yesterday to let me know how warm and welcoming

people were to him, and his troops, everywhere he goes, telling me how

people shake their hands, and thank them for being willing to serve, and

fight, for not only our own freedoms but so that others may have them


But he also told me about an incident in the grocery store he stopped

at yesterday, on his way home from the base. He said that ahead of

several people in front of him stood a woman dressed in a burkha. He

said when she got to the cashier she loudly remarked about the US flag lapel

pin the cashier wore on her smock.

The cashier reached up and touched the pin, and said proudly, "yes, I

always wear it and I probably always will."

The woman in the burkha then asked the cashier when she was going to

stop bombing her countrymen, explaining that she was Iraqi.

A gentleman standing behind my son stepped forward, putting his arm

around my son's shoulders, and nodding towards my son, said in a calm

and gentle voice to the Iraqi woman: "Lady, hundreds of thousands of

men and women like this young man have fought and died so that YOU

could stand here, in MY country and accuse a check-out cashier of

bombing YOUR countrymen.

It is my belief that had you been this outspoken in YOUR own country,

we wouldn't need to be there today. But, hey, if you have now learned

how to speak out so loudly and clearly, I'll gladly buy you a ticket

and pay your way back to Iraq so you can straighten out the mess in

YOUR country that you are obviously here in MY country to avoid."

Everyone within hearing distance cheered.

Pass it on.... Patriotism is not a "fad"!

I'm 1/16 cherokee. I'm in my homeland.

I'm also about 1/16 irish, and english. but you don't here me praising ireland or england, which I've never visited and have no desire to.

I was born and raised in america. I'M A FUKKIN AMERICAN. and I speak ENGLISH (american). I served in US Marines, and I back what this country does 110%. anybody don't like it? get on a ship or learn to swim. maybe then you'll realize how good you have it.

there's a reason why all these foreigners invade our (my) country.

do I really give a damn if I p1ss off a few people with this? (what do you think?)

and one more thing--johnny depp didn't like what we were doing over in iraq. so you know what he did? HE MOVED THE FUKK OUT.

maybe some of the rest of you should follow suit.

do you know what would happen if I moved to china, lived off their welfare system (pretend they have one), didn't have the decency to learn their language, attend their universities (free of charge)and take that knowledge back to my own country for my own betterment, refused to accept their culture and complain that "my culture" wasn't being represented in the schools, universities, media, etc.?

they would execute me or throw me in a prison and I'd never be heard from again. :dunno

no offense to those hard working individuals who make this country the best place in the world to live.

I have a tendancy to SAY the things everyone else is THINKING.

if that makes me an azzhole, then so be it. :dunno
