A dear WW II Marine Friend sent this along to us ~ his comment: "Just had to pass along because it kind of sums it all up." ~ The Rocking P

The American Dream ended (on November 6th) in Ohio. The second term
of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of
the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered,
settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind.

A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers,
Union Members, Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood,
uninformed young people, the "forever needy," the chronically
unemployed, illegal aliens and other "fellow travelers" have ended
Norman Rockwell's America.

The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch...the Pit Bull is in the backyard!!!!!

The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky's "Rules
for Radicals" and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod, along with
international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on
their beige puppet to bring us act 2 of the New World Order!!!!!

Our side ran two candidates who couldn't even win their
own home states, and the circus fatster Chris Christie helped Obama
over the top with a glowing "post Sandy" tribute that elevated the
"Commander-in-Chief" to Mother Teresa status. People like me are
completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on
or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has
surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a
shot being fired!!

You will never again out vote these people. It will take individual acts of
defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the
rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not
moderates -- not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and
restore our beloved country to its former status.

Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes
and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation
has timidly frittered away due to "white guilt" and political
correctness.....

I’m done!

It is more than a load of crap. It was not written by some marine it was .penned by some right wing hack!

I have news for you you will lose the next election too because of this kind of subversive nonsense!

I served with many a African American soldier. We bled, and we died and none of us considered our color, race or religion.

I guess this post was written by some Chicken Hawk and posted by the same!

Don't dishonor my flag with your crap!

Sarge, You are amazing! You can tell who authored something just by looking at it? For purposes of full disclosure, I have never served in the military (a fact I deeply regret) but do honor those who have. This was pounded into me by my father who earned 2 purple hearts as well as many other awards so I take it seriously. Therefore, my sincere to you and anyone else who has honorably worn the uniform.
Having said that, how can you make assumptions regarding the author of this post? I have often been confronted by servicemen or vets having opinions I would not think a member of the military (or former member) would have. This does not mean I do not respect their right to have that opinion.
I also think you are misunderstanding his reference to "white Christain Males" was not due to any racist proclivities...rather it is in response to that group (of which he and I are a member) which has become such a target to the forces of political correctness! As far as the next election, I have seen the Republican party been pronounced dead before...only to see them win huge victories.
Finally, whaile a lot of the changes in this country are just normal evoloution, there are a lot of changes being pushed politically that have been a loss to this country. There was a lot to be said for the Norman Rockwell America.

One last point...it's not just your flag!

It's a shame your friend is so confused and misdirected. Why in the world would you want to see us back in the mud hole that our President is struggleing to pull us out of.

Ok...I can see where some of the statements may be subject to interpretation....but don't really see what specifically are lies. You must also keep in mind the context of the post. Exactly what are the lies? I do not fear truth..if there are false statements there, tell me what they are....how is it factually wrong?
Just for the record, my father was proud of me. I don't think it is your right to question that just because you disagree with something I posted however. I take that back...it is your right...it's just not very civil.

You are correct my statement concerning paternal pride was not being civil and I do apolagize, it was made based on the experience of others.

I thank you for your apology...we can all get a little crazy when the topic brings out passion. But now I must resort to being the smart ass ex New Yorker I am. Isn't your statement "It's common knowledge that the Republican party is a party of failure and will only continue in that direction at least for the next 10 years." also opinion written in the spirit of being truth? Is it therefore by your own logic a lie? Just for the record, I don't have a high opinion of either the Republican party or the Democratic party. They are both filled with narsistic people for the most part. Long on wind and short on ethics. But the party of failure? If you objectively look back at politics in this country you will see where both parties have been declared dead for at least a decade or permanently. Then a year later they come back and take control over most of the government. I don't really know what the Republican party has to do with the post anyway. The poster is simply expressing his belief that the demographic group he belongs to is under attack ant that a lot of this country's culture is being destroyed in the process.

How many times do we see "A dear friend of mine received this and I just had to pass it on...". When you are a right wing white male you will say anything to maintain your self righteous crap. I suppose you wear a white sheet with 2 eye holes too.
