|Tinker||F***'um, the reason the complain about it is because they know they are the pussy's referred to in the quote.|

Good decision to keep it and not bow to them. Here's what I have to say to the most extreme anti-war protesters......we're going to fight the terrorists. It's better to do it in Afghanistan and Iraq than Boston or New York, right?
I don't think they're necessarily "pussies" because they're not fighting, but ANYONE can play armchair quarterback from across the globe when they're not being shot at every day. Personally, I like war. I love being deployed. It's just job security for me......but that is just my own opinion.

|kg4kpg||I kept it. The jack-booted thugs will have to ban me. It was just a few of the other forum members, no problem from the owners...yet. That forum must be owned by Obama.|

|compshooter||Hmmmmmm.........First Amendment? Freedom of speech? I'm with you. Keep your sig. If you cave in to someone who doesn't agree with it, then everything our country is founded on begins to deteriorate.|

|joshuasv||Keep it....Sometimes the truth hurts, and they just want you to know that you've found some truth. Just so happens it relates to something in their past, which makes them lash out.|

|kg4kpg||debruins, I don't feel protesting is a proper form of free speech but more of a rebellious activity that undermines our system (or any system) of government. One that our enemies enjoy watching I'm sure. I excercise my freedom of speech by writing my congressmen with my opinons, not bad-mouthing my government in the streets or spitting my soldiers, or calling them baby killers. And I agree with the above post saying your friend aides the enemy despite his proposed support of our troops. We are going to be fighting wars forever, it's human nature and the way nations are built. In closing...they can protest what they want, dislike what I say or quote all they want...I'll keep going to fight for them until I'm too old or they kill me trying. Or I can retire. The first protester that spits on me....well, I may excercise a couple rights as well.|

Theres alot of members of the Armed Forces that think the whole campaign is wrong and stupid, but they are there because its their duty and they re-up because they are patriots.
There are also alot of people that join to pay for college then suddenly find themselves in Iraq getting shot at.

|jpdocdave||ya, i don't think you can protest a war, and support the troops. sending care packages is great. but how do you protest what they're dying for, and still support them. i said in another thread, these guys volunteer, and revolunteer, and they believe in what they're risking their lives for. and they don't complain. you can't tell someone what you're dying for is stupid, but i support you.|
|05-04-2008 04:48 PM|
And BTW KPG, they can take your sig when they pry it from your cold, dead hands!~ I know, I'm mixing metaphors, or something, but you get the point, although I think you already had it!

I never served my country in the military, I got lucky enough to get a full ride in football and track.
But... To this very day, If our country needs me, I will do what I can to help out.
I have nothing but total respect for our country men and women. If it were not for them, we would not be where we are today, So I say THANK YOU for all that you have done, and for all that you will do.
I also love the saying in your sig. Does not offend me at all.
I also like the saying Love it or Leave it.. I wish more people would grow a backbone and tell the people here who complain about this and that if you do not like it, go somewhere else.
I hope you all stay strong in your faith and what you believe in and what you have fought so hard for, and for what so many lost there lives for.

supporting troops and war is quite different
my friend goes to anti war protests almost once a week, but also sends care packages to the troops just as often
he thinks there is no reason for the war in iraq and we should concentrate on the "real" terrorists in afghanistan, so he protests the Iraq war
however he still supports our troops and knows they are putting their lives at risk for our country and so he supports them, but not the government's decision

Keep the signature, kg4kpg. After all, it's the truth
|05-04-2008 02:32 AM|
Why would he be reprimanded?
Kg4kpg, I think your sigline is funny. If some people don't like it, they're free to not read it.
|05-04-2008 01:14 AM|
Im surprised you havent been reprimanded already on this forum
Personally I love the sig keep it!
|05-04-2008 01:03 AM|
|debruins||and being free means the ability to protest, the reason for our type of government is that people can voice their opinions and they will be heard by the government|

|05-04-2008 12:36 AM|
the reason the army is fighting is to let us be able to protest the war, so how are they pussies if they are excersicing the right that the soldiers have given them, what's the point of going to war if your gonna call everyone who benefits from our freedoms a pussy?
not sure i worded that properly but get my gist?
but u can do w/e u want thats also the point of our country (kinda), leave it up if u want!!
|05-04-2008 12:18 AM|
|4point||Thats just 2 guys opinion's. You have the same right to express yours. Its not offensive, and its not "in your face" like the anti-war protesters. Screw'em!|

|rthdtj||You dont owe an explanation to anyone...whether anyone else agree's with you or not. You're an individual in the greatest country on earth, You/We/I served our country and we know why.|

|kg4kpg||I'm not. They can delete my account first if they want. I don't even know when Gen Franks said this or if he really said it. I was more humored by it than anything else.|
