What a great country. Here's a Verdoro Green 1968 GTO hardtop. It is parked beside a military monument. Speaking of the military, here's a little humor for your day. The original source is not known.
Rules for the Non Military
Dear Civilians, "We know that the current state of affairs in our great
nation has many civilians up in arms and excited to join the military.
For those of you who can't join, you can still lend a hand. Here are a
few of the areas where we would like your assistance:
1. The next time you see an adult talking (or wearing a
hat) during the playing of the National Anthem -- kick their ass.
2. When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the American Flag
in protest -- kick their ass.
3. Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the highest
amount of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone doing otherwise,
quietly pull them aside and explain how these veterans fought for the
very freedom they bask in every second. Enlighten them on the many
sacrifices these veterans made to make this Nation great. Then hold
them down while a disabled veteran kicks their ass.
4. (GUYS) If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you
were. Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs) or Jungle Fatigues, telling
others that you used to be "Special Forces," and collecting GI Joe
memorabilia, might have been okay when you were seven years old.
Now, it will only make you look stupid and get your ass kicked.
5. Next time you come across an Air Force member, do not ask them,
"Do you fly a jet?" Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot.
Such ignorance deserves an ass-kicking (children are exempt).
6. If you witness someone calling the US Coast Guard 'non-military',
inform them of their mistake -- and kick their ass.
7. Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a parade, get on
your damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over your
heart. Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to be
carrying her -- of course, failure to do either of those could earn you
a severe ass-kicking.
8. Don't try to discuss politics with a military member or a veteran.
We are Americans, and we all bleed the same, regardless of our party
affiliation. Our Chain of Command is to include our Commander-In-Chief
(CinC). The President (for those who didn't know) is our CinC regardless
of political party. We have no inside track on what happens inside
those big important buildings where all those representatives meet. All
we know is that when those civilian representatives screw up the
situation, they call upon the military to go straighten it out. If you
keep asking us the same stupid questions repeatedly, you will get your
9. 'Your mama wears combat boots' never made sense to me---stop saying
it! If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore, could
kick your ass!
10. Bin Laden and the Taliban are not Communists, so stop saying 'Let's
go kill those Commies!' And stop asking us where he is! Crystal balls
are not standard issue in the military. That reminds me -- if you see
anyone calling those damn psychic phone numbers, let me know, so I can
go kick their ass!
11. 'Flyboy' (Air Force), 'Jarhead' (Marines), 'Grunt' (Army), 'Squid'
(Navy), 'Puddle Jumpers' (Coast Guard), etc., are terms of endearment we
use describing each other. Unless you are a service member or vet, you
have not earned the right to use them. That could get your ass kicked.
12. Last, but not least, whether or not you become a member of the
military, support our troops and their families. Every Thanksgiving and
religious holiday that you enjoy with family and friends, please
remember that there are literally thousands of soldiers, sailors,
marines and airmen far from home wishing they could be with their
families. Thank God for our military and the sacrifices they make every
day. Without them, our country would get its ass kicked.
"It is the Veteran, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press."
"It is the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech."
"It is the Veteran, not the campus organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate."
"It is the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn
"If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a Veteran."
