    A letter to American people,

    From an Iraqi born. I would like to show gratitude for America and the American people for being a great nation and helping me have a life when taking Saddam Hussain Down back in 2003. I was 20 years old back then and if Saddam Hussain was still here, I would be fighting in one...

    I'm wondering if practicing Muslim immigrants

    that are entering the country now are capable of accepting the principle of the separation of church and state. Some might question if fundamentalist Christians are but to me they seem to accept it for the most part. I have doubts so far as to practicing fundamentalist Muslims

    I love this country but it makes me sad to see

    just how far we have gone downhill. The number of people unwilling to work for what they get, the number of people who are out of work that don't want to be, the ridiculous and unfair laws on everything from taxes to how we raise our children and the sad state of our...

    Read This And Thought It Was Funny

    A man goes into the hospital for a vasectomy. Before the procedure a very attractive nurse comes in and takes his vitals, then tells him to take all of his clothes off. When he is fully undressed she instructs him to lie down on the table. The man obeys. The nurse then takes all...

    I'm not a fan of the current Progressive

    With Memorial Day weekend upon us,

    I would ask that you keep a good thought for all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Although what today's military is doing is not as clear cut and easy to understand as in earlier times, the United States is still a damn fine place to live and raise...

    Today is the day to remember the thousands of

    men who died protecting our freedom. As someone who has 4 family members who are actively defending our country, and have lost 2 family members who did the same, it breaks my heart to turn on the news and see those apes stomping on our flag. As Hank Jr said, if you don't love it...

    I was born and lived with my parents in America

    until I was 18 years old. At that time, my parents moved to Europe because of my father's job. Today, I live in a town where the military is huge and they are well respected by the community for their service to this country. America is a great country and that is because of...

    who post in any of the "I hate America / American" groups sound like illiterates with anger management problems. Or just generally unfriendly, arrogant and ignorant. and people say us Americans are rude... Lol.
