So, tomorrow's Independence Day and I thought I'd post some things that give this Country it's due respect. Feel free to post your patriotic goodness here.

The Ragged Old Flag

The Pledge Of Allegiance

While walking down the street one day,
I met a man who stopped to pray.
He knelt before our nation’s flag,
While others treat it like a rag.

I asked the man his business there,
He looked at me and fixed his hair.
He said “Young man, I have a story to tell,
One you might not know very well.

When I was a youth, not much older than you,
I joined the Marines, thought I’d try something new.
You see, I was mad at my parents and all of their rules,
I thought they knew nothing, just a couple of fools.

So I went through the training, all fit for war.
I was one of the best, the top of the Corps.
Then, before long, we all shipped out.
I’d finally see what wars all about.

We landed at noon, or at least at high tide.
Being scared would be useless, there was nowhere to hide.
Many men tried their hardest to flee.
But the Brave Ones charged on so you could live free.

We thought of our families and our God-given right
To defend freedom, and to be in this fight.
We did what we needed to protect Liberty dear,
So our fellow citizens would not live in fear.

I remember the morning we charged up that hill,
We wanted revenge, we were ready to kill.
But we were out-done by the enemys wit.
Almost every man had gotten hit.

But we still fought on, not losing hope.
Though many of them knew not how to cope,
I will admit it, I was afraid,
I thought I’d end up in a memorial parade.

So many soldiers surrendered their lives
To protect you, your families, your wives.
But they’re not remembered, no one seems to care
About what they went through when they were there.”

As I heard what he said, my eyes filled with tears.
I asked “How can that happen?” He said “It’s gone on for years!
People don’t think of the sacrifices made.
But the price of your comfort by a soldier was paid.”


GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

I am a deeply patriotic person. I beat the shit out of my best friend for insulting our dead military men/women. I dived off a balcony to save a falling flag from touching the ground ( I went to the hospital). I have not been in the military, but I know of the horror and hell they have been throught in war.

God bless America indeed.

It's better for someone to think you're a fool
than to open your mouth and prove them right

I'm sorry, but that's the stupidest thing I have ever heard someone do, even while drunk.
HAPPY 4th EVERYONE! I got some HUGE fireworks to shoot off tonight..

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

its ok, for the 4th, my dad and I are opting out of fireworks while my cousins, mom and sister go to fireworks. We are at there house, and it sucks. I mean, I have to live without my big blast for a while. Sounds easy, but I have everything I could want to mod it right now, including some SMDTG's.

Anyway, Happy Fourth to everyone. Lets all celebrate this day where... something or other.... happened....
