    Kids are annoying so, bleh on them, but I absolutely love all the videos with dogs and their soldier-owners coming home. It really jerks me to see the love between canine and human.

    I don't hate America, because it has Hawaii, Alaska, and Pasadena too. But I can not over look the negative impact Americanism has had on my country. But it's a great place to go and shop because it's so bloody cheap there.

    But Australia being America's best friend, just ask Obama, protects America every time they pick a fight with another country for their oil.

    No but many who live in deliverance land, were they play banjos, all they have to do for a family reunion, is to pop into the emergency waiting. room of the local hospital. They are all family there.icon_wink.gif

    Given that we witness the same things when our troops return (or their coffins), cdns find them moving too.

    (We take some solace knowing our dead and wounded come back from where they were requested to go by the UN or NATO - ours were not victims of our leaders' arrogance and deception.

    But no one's suffering compares to a narcissist's.

    9/11 is called the worst act act of terrorism but more innocents died in the bombing of Guernica.)

    So, OP - others respect your losses, Learn not to be so offensively dismissive of theirs.

    Our soldiers die in your wars too, along with all the others you drag into your invasions, because we are REQUIRED to by our treaty The only thing that kept us out of Iraq was it was so clearly an illegal AGGRESSIVE action the NATO treaty's mutual DEFENSE provisons did not apply - to the fury of G W Bush at cdn refusal to join his crusade.

    Some little insights about loving the USA, from a guy who wore a US uniform for 25 years:

    Once, when I was just an Army enlisted Specialist E-4, I was driving my car along Bullion Blvd on Fort Knox, Kentucky, right past the famous gold depository. But very nearby along that road was the post stockade, where the military prisoners were kept. And you could see them in the yard, through the barbed wire, there being no wall.

    Reveille sounded, and in those days (I don't know what the custom is now), you had to pull your car over, stop and get out, and salute in the direction of the blared music, whether you were in uniform or civilian dress. And I noticed the prisoners all in formation across the street behind their barbed wire, standing at attention facing their compound flag pole, but not saluting.

    And as I got back into my car I asked my passenger, a Sergeant First Class and friend of mine (SFC, E-7), why the prisoners didn't salute the flag.

    "They aren't allowed," he told me. "It's a privilege to salute the flag, that only soldiers serving honorably are allowed to do. As convicts, they have lost that right."

    I was shocked. A special privilege? I had thought it was a damn hassle. But seeing other soldiers denied that "honor" forced me to reevaluate.

    From that day forward I eagerly saluted our US flag with enthusiasm, rather than as an obligation. And to this day I still salute our flag and our national anthem, even when out of uniform. As a retired Officer that is my right, at all times. And when I do I remember that Fort Knox stockade, and those who were denied that privilege. I do love my country, more than you may realize, even if I get slammed for being a Liberal.

    saluting a flag is a "privilege?"

    have you any idea how jingoistic and foolish that makes you sound?

    But then, non Americans actually think you all look really silly putting your hand on your heart as someone shrieks and makes your national anthem as unrecognizable as they can.
    icon_lol.gif

    I guess magical gestures are really important to Americans (like putting a hand on a bible makes you tell the truth)


    Patrotism is just another form of religion.

    Really? why is God going to "bless" the land in the USA, but once across the border into Canada or Mexico -you're on your own there. You're fucked?

    When you look at it objectively, it is a really foolish concept

    And total bullcrap, because everyone resents other parts of the country but theirs.

    That is not national patriotism, it is just parochialism pretending to be more encompassing than it really is.


    Besides - in the U.S. convicts are stripped of their "rights" other than the right to liberty.?
    Oh right - you have so many people in prison, if they were allowed to vote they would be able to carry an election. icon_lol.gif


    In Canada, a convict can vote (I think) but you cannot runfor office with an unpardoned conviction on your record.

    Citizens in other countries do not demonstrate the way those in the US do, and may consider our practices odd. But to disparage them on an international forum tells more about this particular Canadian. As if anyone in the US gives a shit about what he "thinks" about patriotism in the US or anything else for that matter. Based on his rants in other threads, he is obviously not playing with a full deck. Maybe is his excuse is a severe stroke has left him not all there. But regardless, liberal or conservative, we should clearly repudiate him.

    In addition to this, he has made extremely nasty comments towards riddler in several threads. He was so proud http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/1866724 of being recognized by the KickAssCanadian website, http://kickasscanadians.ca/ it might be interesting if they were sent a digest of his rants. If amanda@amandasage.ca saw this, his ass might get kicked right off the site. Someone could even send it to his political party. Not worth my time, but if you're going to be in public life, what you say on a public website can be used against you. Maybe someone lurking will be offended at his attitude towards our patriotic traditions and act accordingly. Hehe No TOS violation as it is from threads, not private correspondence.

    Yeah, most of us feel good to see these homecomings of soldiers who might just as easily have come home in a box. Everyone is glad that they come home on their own two feet. It's too bad that the country for the most part forgets the soldiers who do come back in coffins, or worse yet, with broken bodies and minds that will never heal, and whom the country will soon forget and ignore. And then realize that almost all of this national, personal, and family trajedy was brought on by the stupidity, arrogance, incompetence and schoolboy naivete and jingoism of the likes of Bush2, Wolfewitz, Rumsfeld, and all the Yes-men toadies at the General level in the pentagon. A totally unnecessary war - unlike WW II - that was a total waste. Thousands of our young men and boys have been killed and maimed in this last stupid war, which has accomplished exactly NOTHING after the death of Sadam. Iraq is no different now than it was after Sadam's capture. The sunis and shiites are back to killing each other with a vengance, and Muqtada al-Sadr, the leader of the militia fighting our troops (whom Bush2 let get away, giving up hard won battle gains) is back in power, advocating the killing of any remaining americans in Iraq. Nothing has been gained by the great sacrifice of our young men who have not come home. And Obamma is no better than Bush2 in all this. He should have brought the troops home when he was elected. Nothing has been gained by his keeping them there for another 3 years, except he looked a bit better to the war-mongers in the country.

    Keep the troops home, and slowly attrition the force levels down to a point where the US manpower budget is under 1% of GDP.

    The trade off can be a better funded cyber defense, greater nuclear deterrent development and the development of non-nuclear super weapons, and continuing our air and space superiority well into the 21st century.

    But no more bases in Germany and Europe. The Bundeswehr and the armed forces of the UK and France are more than sufficient to take care of European defense needs.

    And the same should go for Japan and Korea in their respective near futures.

    America is no longer fit to call itself a "superpower" despite it's lingering economic and military weight: we must correct our decline, and learn to be comfortable with the fact that we cannot be an empire, but return to being a nation among many others.

    We run the very real risk of becoming a failed nation, and that within the next 10 years.

    Upper_Cdn saidsaluting a flag is a "privilege?"

    have you any idea how jingoistic and foolish that makes you sound?

    I guess I don't. It's a military thing, that doesn't apply to US civilians, who may salute what they like. And that's maybe outside your own range of experience.

    But to the US military, who have taken an oath, to salute the flag is a symbolic gesture, which is a privilege. If you dishonor your oath, you lose that privilege.

    And that experience that day in 1970 at Fort Knox profoundly affected me. I felt more pity for those prisoners that they were barred from saluting our flag than pity for their confinement itself. It made me realize that saluting was an honor I had earned, not a duty imposed upon me.

    But then again, this is the ethos of the military, which may be unknown to you. I hate to be in dispute with you, we have chatted much in private email, I admire your work on PEI so much. Can we not find a way to resolve this disagreement without animosity?

    I doubt it's actually "information" at all that Mr. Deco posted - more like a fairy tale. Today he described himself as "uncut" but in the past he has posted on here that he is cut.

    So chances are very good that what he described above is completely made up. icon_wink.gif

    When you lie about small things, pun intended hehe, you tend to also lie about larger things if you think you can get away with them.

    Just a very general comment not related to the current situation at all - folks are fortunate that lies can only be shown based on inconsistencies within RJ threads. If inconsistencies could be shown between RJ and external, publicly accessible sites, some huge big whopper of lies might possibly be shown.

    One of the things that does get me about America, is you can hate all the Arabs, the blacks and the fags, so long as you pray and salute the falg; and fall to your knees for a man named Jesus, who looks just like me.
