Rules for Non-Military Personnel (english)

Dear Civilians,
We know that the current state of affairs in our great nation have many civilians up in arms and excited to join the military. For those of you who can't join, you can still lend a hand. Here are a few of the areas we would like your assistance:

1) The next time you see an adult talking (or wearing a hat) during the playing of the National Anthem ... kick their ass.

2) When you witness firsthand someone burning the American Flag in protest... kick their ass.

3) Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the highest amount of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone doing otherwise, quietly pull them aside and explain how these Veterans fought for the very freedom they bask in every second. Enlighten them on the many sacrifices these Veterans made to make this Nation great. Then hold them down while a Disabled Veteran kicks their ass.

4) (GUYS) If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you were. Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDU's), telling others that you used to be "Special Forces," and collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay if you were still seven. Now, it will only make you look stupid and get your ass kicked.

5) Next time you come across an Air Force member, do not ask them, "Do you fly a jet?" Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot. Such ignorance deserves an ass kicking (children are exempt).

6) If you witness someone calling the U.S. Coast Guard non military, inform them of their mistake...and kick their ass.

7) Roseanne Barr's singing of the National Anthem is not a blooper...it was a disgrace and disrespectful. Laugh, and sooner or later your ass will be kicked.

8) Next time Old Glory (U.S. flag) prances by during a parade, get on your damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over your heart. Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to be carrying her...of course, failure to do either of those could earn you a severe ass kicking.

9) What Jane Fonda did during the Vietnam War makes her the enemy. The proper word to describe her is "traitor." Just mention her nomination for "Woman of the Year" and get your ass kicked.

10) Don't try to discuss politics with a military member or a veteran. We are Americans and we all bleed the same regardless of our party affiliation.

Our Chain of Command, is to include our commander in Chief. The President (for those who didn't know) is our CIC regardless of political party. We have no inside track on what happens inside those big important buildings where all those representatives meet. All we know is that when those civilian representatives screw up the situation, they call upon the military to go straighten it out. The military member might direct you to Oliver North. (I can see him kicking your ass already.)

11) "Your mama wears combat boots" never made sense to me ... stop saying it! If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore, could kick your ass!

12) Bin Laden and the Taliban are not communists, so stop saying "Let's go kill those Commie's!!!" And stop asking us where he is!!!! Crystal balls are not standard issue in the military. That reminds me ... if you see anyone calling those damn psychic phone numbers; let me know, so I can go kick their ass.

13) Flyboy (Air Force), Jar Head (Marines), Grunt (Army), Squid (Navy) etc., are terms of endearment we use describing each other. Unless you are a service member or vet, you have not earned the right to use them. That could get your ass kicked.

14) Last but not least, whether or not you become a member of the military, support our troops and their families. Every Thanksgiving and religious holiday that you enjoy with family and friends, please remember that there are literally thousands of sailors and troops far from home wishing they could be with their families. Thank God for our military and the sacrifices they make every day. Without them, our country would get its ass kicked.

"It is the Soldier, not the reporter Who has given us the freedom of the press.
It is the Soldier, not the poet, Who has given us the freedom of speech.
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer, Who gives us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the Soldier Who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag, and Whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protester to burn the flag."

Myth. (english)

Please explain how soldiers in Iraq are defending our freedom. Be specific. List the exact threat that Saddam posed to the US, including a detailed report, with evidence, of how he was planning to carry it out and what specific weapons and weapon delivery systems he had at his disposal to accomplish the attacks.

Please explain how we are safer now that Iraq has become destabilized and thousands of Iraqis have lost loved ones. Many thousands of children in Iraq are without parents, arms, or legs. How does their anger at the United States make us any safer?

Please explain how kicking the ass of people that exercize their freedom constitutes fighting for freedom?

The fact is, you can't explain any of this. Fascism is based on irrationality. The author of the above piece is irrational.

The real freedom fighters are the reporters that get fired for refusing to publish government lies in the media, the soldiers the refuse to murder in a war of aggression, individuals such as Sherman Austin that are imprisoned for struggling against tyranny, and the victims of brownshirts that want to "kick the asses" of anyone that dares to defend freedom.

Viva la Revolucion!

Forget all the asskicking...(Probably a bitchboy anyway...) Me, being prior military, (10-74 to 10-80 and 3-82 to 4-83,)there is no way I would have fought this assinine war. If fact, I would have went to jail.
Now Mr. Writer above, thinks he has the answer. Kick everyones ass who speaks out or disagrees with his opinion.
Wrong.
I disagree with all of his garbage.
Burn the damn flag...Goddamn sybolism anyway.
Tell you stupid son or daughter to stay the hell out of the military. All it does is brainwash their brainwashed heads to the point of a slave killer for the U.S. government.
Write Bush and Ashcroft a letter. Tell them both they are fucked up. And neither deserves to be in their powerful positions.
And Mr. Writer. If you don't like what I'm saying? My phone is listed. In fact, so is my address.
You Go! (english)

Kris Samsel, I always stop to read your comments. I don't always agree with them, but God bless you for speaking from your gut! Thank you for your comment to the previous posting. You have my respect.
