I recieved this email from a friend and I couldn't have said it better myself. Sorry its kind of long.

Some people look down their nose at me because I'm a retired veteran. I will not stop someone from burning our flag, and I've been known to criticize certain political figures. In my military career, I've been to places where Joe Q. Public would have been tortured, mutilated, and/or killed for doing either one of these. The freedoms that we enjoy came by way of both luck, courage, and great sacrifice from those that volunteer to place themselves in harm's way...in other words, freedom is NOT free! It's earned and won! :D

Not motorcycle related, and whoever wrote this needs to read a little bit more American history.

"Bo Bo", don't know who would look down at you for being a veteran, but I'd imagine anyone who would do so is a real a*hole. Thank you for serving.

I am new here and this might not be the best post to start out on, but I don't understand this response about needing more instruction in American history. OR, would you care to elaborate?

disturbing avatar, the least you could do is use proper technique and open your other eye, and use proper grip.

Well

He didnt say GOD was garbage. Think he meant the religion issue shouldnt be included. It is the land of the free to everyone not just christians. Why does everyone have to throw the religous issue in there?

I very much agree with the post and I see the same thing happening in Canada. The patients are taking over the asylum.

As far as your question as to why throw the religious issue in, I'd say it's because unlike Canada or Australia, your country and it's Constitution was founded on Christian beliefs. “One nation under God"? "In God we trust"?

It should be understood for those who want to immigrate to the US that while they are free to pursue their own religious views, it is a given that they're moving to a Christian country.

Ok

But how can a nation founded by people who were fleeing from religous persecution have the right to force feed religion to someone else. Yes it was founded by christians BUT was also founded with seperation of church and state. IF i were to believe different and not a christian why is it right to force me to accept this brainwashing? Dont get me wrong i am NOT anti-christian or anti any religion. What you believe is your business, keep it out of government.
