RULES FOR KICKIN' ASS . . .

RULES FOR THE NON-MILITARY

Make sure you read #10

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 any adults 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. 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", collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay when you were seven years old, now it will only make you look stupid and it will 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 (women and children are exempt).


6. If you witness someone calling the Coast Guard 'non-military', inform them of their mistake - and the 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. 'Your mama wears Army boots' never made sense to me - stop saying it! If she did, she is most likely be a vet and can therefore KICK YOUR ASS!


9. '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. Using them could GET YOUR ASS KICKED!


10. 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's the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us Freedom of the Press. It's the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us Freedom of Speech. It's the Veteran, not the community organizer, who gives us the Freedom to Demonstrate. It's 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 the flag.




AND ONE MORE THING:

If you ever see anyone singing the National Anthem in Spanish-
KICK THEIR ASS.


ONE LAST THING:

I got this over the email machine and it said that if I didn't pass it on - get this - I deserve to GET MY ASS KICKED!

So I posted this, not because I didn't want to get my ass kicked BUT BECAUSE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU ARE MEMBERS OF TEAM STORMBRINGER AND YOU ARE VERY, VERY SPECIAL - I KNOW YOU WILL NOT BE OFFENDED AND ARE PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN.

I THANK YOU


WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE! IN GOD WE TRUST!

  1. Well now,

    I agree mostly. I was a woman fighter pilot mother and hence wore combat boots, I always considered that "your mama wore combat boots" was a complement! I used to wag my FA-18 wings over their daycare.

    Secondly, women don't take hats off for the national anthem or prayer...taking hats off for prayer or for invoking the Devine's attention during the national anthem is a guy thing (that comes from the bible, check it out), so don't kick a woman's behind if she doesn't take her hat off for the national anthem. In fact, women are supposed to PUT ON hats for such things (the bible, not me saying this).

    Great....thanks!

  2. Every Thanksgiving Lu and I host some service members from the DLI for dinner. Oddly enough, at least for this Army veteran, most of them are Air Force. Great kids, every single one.

  3. Actually, I was aware of that - the bit about women covering their heads, from the Bible.

    Actually, in the Temple MEN are supposed to cover their heads, in the Presence of the Lord.

    When I attended Temple at the Grand Synagogue, in Jerusalem (as a Christian) I wore a yarmulke.

    I guess the uncovering of the head as a sign of respect is a Western thing.

    Still, regardless of origin, it is our custom. But if one of our Jewish brethren keeps his head covered, while paying respects, I will understand, and I will go with that.

    That is part of what we mean when we talk about our shared Judeo-Christian Heritage.

  4. Boy Scouts (or others in uniform/on duty such as police officers) keep their hats on during the National Anthem and salute with their right hand to the hat visor. Boy Scouts are not required to remove their hats during a prayer or inside a church, but many are tired of arguing with the ignorant and so many remove their hats just to shut them up.

  5. I don't think the military is what makes this nation great. Sure we need protection, but the world would be better if nobody had them

  6. You have a problem with a Spanish speaking person having pride in their country?

  7. Have enough pride in your country to learn the language, and thus, avoid getting ass kicked.
