Something For Memorial Day

One thing I find incredibly tiresome in defending my political beliefs is the idea that because I am liberal, I am not patriotic and I do not support the troops.

Which is idiotic.

So for those of you likewise tired of having to explain that your dissent of our current administration is not the same thing as hating our soldiers, I recommend this brilliant and funny post.

  1. Yes, thanks for this. I am a screaming left-wing San Francisco liberal,a woman, a lesbian, of mixed race with dark skin, have a Jewish sur-name and I'm am vocally and adimantly against the war in Iraq and abhor everything about this administration. Does that mean I don't support the troops? Well, let me just share this bit of my past. After I graduated from college over 20 years ago, I was a commissioned officer in the US Army. I volunteered to be one of the first women allowed to serve in a combat arms field. I served in combat during the conflict in Grenada. I returned to train men and women in Air Defense Artillery for the remainder of my tour. I served proudly for 6 years. I will gladly entertain criticism and will cordially debate anyone who questions my patriotism and stance about this war and the ass-holes running/profitting from it, if you also served in the military. However, if you have never served,(like the idiots sponsoring this war), and are not tolerant of anyone's opposing views, it's obvious you don't understand the concept of freedom and what protecting it really is. So it's your patriotism I call into question and my liberal ass you can kiss! That's all. Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

  2. Ooops. It's been brought to my attention that I spelled "adamantly" incorrectly and have an extra word, "I'm", in the same sentence. See what patriotic, concerned friends I have!
