    I received this e~mail from a friend...thoroughly enjoyed it so I posted here for all of you to read. It's circulating through the net so you might have already read it, but for the ones who haven't...


    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 also.

    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 U.S. 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 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, he 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!

    :D Love It!!

    All i can say to that is - damn skippy!

    Anyone, I repeat anyone, that doesn't want to be here can just pack up and get the hell out. While I disagree with our current government and I think most politicians should be imprisoned - this is still the greatest nation of the face of the earth...

    Precisely.

    So they come here and bit$h about how we bomb them back in their country, not realizing that if she were to say that in her country that she would be either pimp-slapped into a pulp, or shot....on site....

    Although I do have a son serving in the Military (Air Force, stationed in Arkansas), this e~mail was sent to me from a friend who lives in California about his son.

    Thank-you. Your appreciation is very warming. :)

    That is a wonderful expression!

    There should be a website set up (your ticket home.com) for anyone who doen't like this country. A one way ticket given to anyone back to where you are from or any other country (just get the Fu&k out) if you don't like the way we do things in the US. Conditions would apply (well only one) You have to sign a document that you will Never return to the US and if you do you would be considered a terrorist.

    That's the kind of thing I like to see...people who respect those who are serving in the military and willing to stand up and declare that respect. [​IMG]

    That's fine, but it sounds like you need to start a new thread.
