An email sent to me by my sister-in-law.

I think its a dig at my leftwing beliefs, my sister-in-law is a card carrying member of the religious right..what do you think?

Here's a quote from a government employee who witnessed a recent interaction between an elderly woman and an antiwar protester in a Metro station in DC:
"There were protesters on the train platform handing out pamphlets on the evils of America. I politely declined to take one.
"An elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator and a young (20ish) female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she politely declined.
"The young protester put her hand on the old woman's shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice said, 'Lady, don't you care about the children of Iraq?'
"The old woman looked up at her and said, ' Honey, my father died in France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea, and a son in Vietnam.
All three died so you could have the right to stand here and bad mouth our country. If you touch me again. I'll stick this umbrella up your ass and open it.' "
~God Bless America~

My reply was: No one died in Vietnam for my right to free speech, but they did die for something..it was called Presidential Ego and "war is good for big business and the ecomony".

Gee, she didnt reply to that one.

6 people gave us their .02 cents:

My mom sent me that and asked me to passs it on. I deleted it. That is the other side of it, what the logic is.

A string of non sequitors capped off with a gratuitous threat of violence: truly an irrefutable argument. Yeah, I'm sold.

You those "card carrying members of the religious right" can be swayed.

I am, for example, living proof.
