Let's clarify a few things.
I'm a proud United States Air Force veteran. I'm a proud former federal lawman. The overwhelming majority of men in my family are veterans and many have also served in law enforcement.
All of us, without fail, have bled for our country. Some of our men didn't come home from their tours of duty.
And now I read about this pathetic excuse of an Air Force veteran, Haley Sides, who's pissed off because her kindergarten-aged girl's school has the kids recite the Pledge of Allegiance each morning.
She's pissed because she thinks the emphasis should be on multiculturalism and globalism, not on the pride of one's country. However, I see that she laid aside those beliefs while taking GI Bill money to complete a four-year college education.
Message to Haley Sides: Get the fuck out of our country. Leave your little girl. We'll raise her and take care of her. You are unfit to be a parent.
Don't worry. We won't "indoctrinate" your daughter, but we will teach her that everything in her future is a direct result of the very country her sperm-receptacle birther despises so much.
We'll teach her that in almost no other country in the very global community her sperm-receptacle so adores would tolerate the insolence and defiance that she is free to practice here.
We'll also teach her that it's possible for one to wear the uniform of the greatest nation on earth and still manage to defile it and everything it stands for--just as a handful of others have done in the recent past, including Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo who plotted to kill his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, and Maj. Hasan who DID kill fellow soldiers at the post. And of course, there's Pfc. Bradley E. Manning who gave over tens of thousands of classified documents to the Wikileaks pukes.
Unfortunately, we'll have to teach the little girl that her sperm-receptacle birth-mother hates the very country that made everything possible for her.
And to Ms. Sides: Be glad, very glad, that my time in the Air Force was well before yours.
In reading the comments of the story, I see a number of people who it is probably best that our paths never cross. These are the same people born of the generation of those who spat upon us in airports and bus stations.
And to those misguided punks and punkettes who make such comments and who are stinking up the air and parks at their Occupy Whatever protests and who are openly wishing for "violent revolution," understand this--
You do not want violent revolution. You do not want the fury, anger and pent-up resentment of twenty-million veterans waking up and coming down on you like the fist of God Himself in defense of our country.
But, if that is what you truly think you want, then enough with the tough talk. Let's get the dance going.
Because for me, I'm tired of the domestic enemy fringe continuously pecking away at our freedoms, our rights and our way of life.
If you don't like it here, leave. It's that simple.
