"For Freedom"


Recommended Posts

Im proud that Del is an american.

now if we can only get Hermit on our side too.

You see...you see?

This is what I was talking about...if you have any view that doesn't agree with the right-wing conservative republican agenda then you're not a 'true American'

...i think hermit is the greatest thing since non-genetically modified, organic, preservative-free, whole grain sliced bread...

Sorry for old bump - been off for quite a few days, computer had to be resuscitated.


They wrote, performed and recorded their first CD "Live from Iraq" in country(that means in Iraq) in a homemade studio between fighting; they have credibility. Just because they are trying to sell their work dosen't mean you can just discount their opinions. I for one support our troops and think their views should be respected (You don't have to agree). I listened to SPC Harris and I was inspired, very cool. But did you listen to Sgt Saunders songs? (Yes I know it's rap, it took me some getting used to!) You should listen up, these guys are fighting for you.

Edited for the usual spelling errors!

It's always easiest to listen to those with whom we agree but we grow and learn the most by considering differing opinions.

Yes, I listened.

And I actually like rap, but I'm not an expert.

And I did like their songs - especially the last vid (4th one down?)

I love the new phrase Del coined though - "flagulatory masturbationism", sounds like a philosphy or something.

Q: "What are your beliefs founded on Jimmy??"

A: "Flagulatory masturbationism"


HEY, that was MINE!!! (see below)

Besides, I'm pretty sure flagulatory masturbationism is prolly illegal in at least 29 states or so, as well as Papua, New Guinea.

/just sayin'

You could have heard a pin drop

When in England, at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by

the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example

of empire building' by George Bush.

He answered by saying, 'Over the years, the United

States has sent many of its fine young men and women

into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders.

The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return

is enough to bury those that did not return.'

You could have heard a pin drop.


There was a conference in France where a number of

international engineers were taking part, including French

and American. During a break, one of the French engineers

came back into the room saying 'Have you heard the latest

dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft

carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What

does he intended to do, bomb them?'

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: 'Our

carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several

hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply

emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they

have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000

people three meals a day, they can produce several

thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each

day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in

transporting victims and injured to and from their flight

deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does

France have?'

You could have heard a pin drop.


A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference

that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian,

Australian and French Navies. At a cocktail reception,

he found himself standing with a large group of Officers

that included personnel from most of those countries.

Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped

their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that,

whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn

only English.' He then asked, 'Why is it that we always have

to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking


Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied 'Maybe

it's because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans

arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German.'

You could have heard a pin drop.



Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in

Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his

passport in his carry on.

'You have been to France before, monsieur?' the customs officer

asked sarcastically.

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France


Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.'

The American said, ''The last time I was here, I didn't have to

show it.

'Impossible. Americans always have to show your passports

on arrival in France!'

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard

look. Then he quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore

at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country,

I couldn't find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to.'

You could have heard a pin drop.

Only reason the U.S. gets involved in other country's affairs is to serve their own interests. The only reason the U.S. partook in World War 2 was because of an attack on their own soil.

Where was the U.S. during the Rwandan genocide? Where is the U.S. in Uganda when thousands of children are kidnapped and forced into the army?

Was the U.S. in Vietnam, Korea, and Afhganistan (the first time around, you know when they were fighting the Russians with Al Qaeda) simply because they dislike communism?

Did the CIA put Augusto Pinochet into power as a brutal dictator in Chile in the 1970s?
