You gotta love these people

#1
*An incident occurred in a supermarket recently, when the following was
witnessed:*

*A Muslim woman dressed in a Burkha (A black gown & face mask) was standing
with her shopping in a queue at the checkout.*
*
When it was her turn to be served, and as she reached the cashier, she made
a loud remark about the English Flag lapel pin, which the female cashier was
wearing on her blouse.*

*The cashier reached up and touched the pin and said, "Yes, I always wear it
proudly. My son serves abroad with the forces and I wear it for him".*

*The Muslim woman then asked the cashier when she was going to stop bombing
and killing her countrymen, explaining that she was Iraqi.

At that point, a Gentleman standing in the queue
stepped forward, and interrupted with a calm and gentle voice, and said to
the Iraqi woman: *

*"Excuse me, but hundreds of thousands of men and women, just like this
ladies son have fought and sacrificed their lives so that people just like
YOU can stand here, in England, which is MY country and allow you to
blatantly accuse an innocent check-out cashier of bombing YOUR countrymen".*

*"It is my belief that if you were allowed to be as outspoken as that in
Iraq, which you claim to be YOUR country, then we wouldn't need to be
fighting there today".*

*"However - now that you have learned how to speak out and **criticize** the
English people who have afforded you the protection of MY country, I will
gladly pay the cost of a ticket to help you pay your way back to Iraq". *

*"When you get there, and if you manage to survive for being as outspoken as
what you are here in England, then you should be able to help straighten out
the mess which YOUR Iraqi countrymen have got you into in the first place,
which appears to be the reason that you have come to MY country to avoid."*

*Apparently the queue cheered and applauded.*

Hmmm........


An e-mail from 2003 said:
One of my dear sons serves in the military. I'm a very proud Mom. He is still stateside here in California. He called me yesterday to let me know how warm and welcoming people were to him and his troops everywhere he goes. Telling me how people shake their hands, and thank them for being willing to serve and fight, for not only our own freedoms, but so that others may have them also.

But he also told me about an incident in the grocery store where he stopped yesterday, on his way home from the base. He said that ahead of several people in front of him stood a woman dressed in a burkha. He said when she got to the cashier she loudly remarked about the U.S. flag lapel pin the cashier wore on her smock.

The cashier reached up and touched the pin, and said, "Yes, I always wear it."

The woman in the burkha then asked the cashier when she was going to stop bombing her countrymen, explaining that she was an Iraqi.

A gentleman standing behind my son stepped forward, putting his arm around my son's shoulders, and nodding towards my son, said in a calm and gentle voice to the Iraqi woman, "Lady, hundreds of thousands of men and women like this young man have fought and died so that you could stand here, in MY country and accuse a checkout cashier of bombing your Countrymen. It is my belief that, had you been this outspoken in YOUR OWN country, we wouldn't need to be there today. But, hey! if you have now learned how to speak out so loudly and clearly, I'll gladly pay your way back to Iraq so you can straighten out the mess you are obviously here to avoid."

Everyone in line, and within hearing distance, cheered the older Gentleman, coming forward as they reached for their wallets. The woman in the burkha left the store in silence.

I am, like at least some that were in the store, outraged! But it also warmed my heart to know that we as Americans are speaking out, calmly and succinctly (finally) to those that enjoy the freedoms here in the US.

Hooray for Ann Rea's son, hooray for that checker, hooray for the gentleman in the store for his actions, hooray for Ann Rea for sharing this with all of us.

God Bless America and Our Troops!

This is why we have the word 'apocryphal'.

Is it a haiku?

pepsi666, you gullible idiot you! If I could have a penny for all the times I've seen this or a variation there of, I'd die a millionaire.

This feel-good propaganda chain email that you so dutifully copied and pasted is nothing more than a desparate attempt to stir up emotions among the populance. Escpecially those who like to have their opinion given to them.

You gotta love these people? I'll tell you something. You gotta love people like you who swallow this drivel hook line and sinker.
