    Star Spangled Banner

    Went to a gun show this weekend, At noon, unannounced, they played the Star Spangled Banner. The whole building stopped what they where doing,,Uncovered, stood up, Saluted, all but two guys, who where vets in wheelchairs. It brought tears to my eyes!

    Re: Star Spangled Banner

    Just curious arid; you bring up a question for me. I'm X Navy. We did not salute if we were indoors as we don't cover indoors. Outdoors we remained covered at all times and saluted. Since vets have recently been given the authority to salute as civilians, would you remove your cover to salute if you were X Navy? I find saluting as a civilian uncomfortable for some reason and just put my hand over my heart like everyone else. To salute would make me feel like I'm trying to draw attention to myself.

    are you truly a person that must sh*t on every single thread?

    cause it does get tiring

    you are witty, use some of that wit to censor yourself, would be a treat for all of us I think

    Re: Star Spangled Banner

    So Farmers, tell me sweetheart, what exactly upsets you about my sentence?

    You follow up by saying the original post is something that can make you proud, give you a good feeling, and it's cool. Why?
    The only thing you should be feeling is gullible, blinkered and misguided.

    I find it odd that you can tell me to censor myself, when all i was implying was that "and this is odd at a gun show in America?" I find it odd that you tell me i sh-t on every thread, when in reality it's only your lack of knowledge and abilities of deduction where humour and rivalry is concerned that makes you think so.
    And i think it odd that you feel you can do this while starting threads ridiculing an 85 yr old woman for being ugly!

    Want to help me out on this one sweetie?

    Re: Star Spangled Banner

    sure darling.

    it is easy. (for most)

    if a person posts they are happy with a situation (like the Star Spangled Banner) being 'played" and they enjoyed it........why do you have to twist the post?

    can't ya just say---GOOD FOR YOU

    nah, not witty enough


    I take pride in what he wrote cause it applied to me personally.

    If someone says the "brits or the irish or the whatever' did something important to them, I won't crap on their parade. I would say "that is cool..glad it was enjoyable for you"


    it is all about following the thread and being 'clean' but some just ain't clean now are they? minds finding a way to twist a post a million ways just to entice.


    also thread on ugly
    I stated pic was butt ugly
    then a ton came on saying their views, fine, but one post on saying a view is cool...then give up on the intervention to change people's ways


    HE NEVER stated he was shocked. never implied. Just YOUR TIRING WIT

    Re: Star Spangled Banner

    I enjoy my "tiring wit". It works for me. I enjoy poking over patriotic gullible Americans. When people post this patriotic garbage i feel they should be strung up on a flagpole and have rotten fruit thrown at them for being so gullible!

    I don't mean no harm. It's just my view. I've seen far too often what happens to people who thrive on patriotism, well, those who actually get off their a$$e$ and follow up on it that is. A forum gives me the right to express that view...as it gives you the right to click that "ignore user" button whenever you feel things become too tiresome. If you don't? then i guess you're not tired of me enough eh?
