    Good-on-ya FEDEX

    I'll only be using FEDEX from now on.

    For far too long those who stood up to violent leftist were fired.



    To be clear and it bears repeating...

    I have no objection with leftists burning the Stars n Stripes...

    just as long as it's wrapped around yer damn America-hatin-blankety-blank-head.


    FedEx Stands Behind Hero

    On Friday, The Gateway Pundit was one of the first to report on a FedEx employee who stepped in to save American flags from being burnt by a group of punks.

    The event took place on Thursday when FedEx driver Matt Uhrin rushed in and broke up a flag burning protest in Iowa City, Iowa. Matt stopped his truck and ripped the flags from the protesters so they could not burn them in protest.

    FedEx has released a statement saying that they are backing their employee and nothing will change with his employment status.

    The sad thing is that 'Matt' used to be what a normal American was. Now, he's considered either a hero or a bigot, depending on where you stand. The bigot perspective is, of course, completely skewed thinking. But that seems to be the norm these days. Go fed-ex!

    So how do we remove the absurd from the normal...
    And replace normal with truly good behavior???

    IMO the answer is: WE DO IT... repeatedly and repeatedly and repeatedly...
    And after literally YEARS of tens of thousands of examples...
    The mutts will start to catch on...

    If this country made a 2 year enlistment in the armed services mandatory after high school, you would see a lot of this crap disappear, and we probably wouldn't have the sissy snowflakes.

    That is exactly right brother! Two years military mandatory with either two years of mandatory community service following or another two years military. Your choice.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    I worked with a lot of guys who did 4 years in the military.... and I can tell you that it doesnt help a lot of these guys... Some of the boys I worked with back in the late 90s..... early 2ks....... I am glad they got out...... cause I couldnt see them as being usefull for anything but cannon or ied fodder...

    Not saying that it doesnt help to straighten some of them out..... but you take a born loser and throw him in the military..... and he is gonna come out a born loser...... with a general or medical discharge...... and a pile of excuses....... lol

    As for matty boy..... doubt it will happen..... but anyone whos flag he grabbed can probably take him to court for a civil rights violation...... first amendment..... might have been better off to mow the crowd down with the fed ex truck and then plead insanity or something....

    Typical BS corny. Perhaps you would have been better off serving in the military.

    You need to move to Europe where your views are more appreciated. Gees give us all a break. Thank you very much

    counter suit because they are trying to infringe on matts right of free expression,,,,it'd be like a dog that caught his and then ate himself

    the protesters did not have the proper burn permits, so it was an illegal fire.

    I would be happy with just one year...

    3 months boot...
    then 9 months community service...
    One caveat: Each person MUST serve their entire year a minimum of 500 miles from their family, with NO visits... none, nada!

    The kids would learn some respect and manners...
    And most of the problems associated with immaturity and rebellious behavior...
    Would go poof!

    One more thing: NO excuses to miss this requirement... NONE!
    Rich kids, poor kids, flat footed kids, kids with asthma, kids in a wheel-chair....
    EVERYONE goes... PERIOD!
    Yeah, there would have to be some accomodations for the ones with medical or mental issues...
    Be good training for the rest of them to 'help their cabin-mates out'... grin!

    The comments about mandatory military service reminded me of a movie:

    Starship Troopers...

    The gist of the story was: One had to EARN citizenship to have the 'rights' of a citizen...
    Serving in the military was one of the ways to citizenship.

    The movie is obviously science fiction...
    However there are lots of overtones and undertones...
    Which poke fun at our society and how humans behave...

    Fun if you like the genre!

    Not surprising Heinlein wrote it...
    The movie was good... touched on lots of social and socieal issues...
    There is a mass of questions the movie presents...
    IMO a smart person would catch the questions and ponder the answers...

    But then... not everyone wants to allow their minds outside a safe box...
    A place where they risk rejection by the masses... especially the PC crowd...
