Look for slogans in the comments here:

Army apologizes for helicopters that ‘terrorized’ Port Angeles

And here.

These are the folks who celebrated independence from a powerful central government earlier this month.


The Sound of Freedom

If we hear the sound of freedom- is it OK to act like free people?


Freedom Isn’t Free

Freedom isn’t free?

If a house is prevented from burning, is it because firefighters protect our rights and freedoms?

Think of your local fire dept.- it serves a clear-cut purpose, no need for people to repeat phrases or slogans in order to justify its existence.

We don’t claim that firefighters protect our rights and freedoms- as if they are part of some kind of civil rights organization.


Support The Troops

What exactly does this mean?


Fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them here.

Meanwhile the folks who move heroin into the US do so free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, etc.

Don’t worry-

The Super Bowl and public affairs will be safe-


If not for veterans- you’d be speaking German now.

The free and well armed people who populate the North American continent could be forced to speak a language not of their choosing?

Please see Operation Sea Lion.


Interaction found on local news sites:

Just be glad The Troops are defending your right say that-

Americans wouldn’t have the freedom to post comments on newspaper websites if people had not given their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan to protect that freedom?

Hey school teachers- where did this idea come from? Were US troops sent to Vietnam so that Americans could be free to send letters to the editor?

Is there any case in which the US Armed Forces have been sent to distant lands on a mission to protect freedom of speech?

Is protecting freedom of speech even part of training scenarios?

If The Troops are fighting for your freedom to share ideas on the web why would you be scolded for doing so?
