|And please don't prop yourself up on your VFW membership.
I am not "propping myself up." Somwhere in the beginning of my meeting, I take a vow to uphold the ways of the aux...blah, blah, blah, and also in this I say tht I will "Instruct others in the proper display of the flag" etc. etc.
I also said that although that is the proper ettiquette, its not really followed, i wear shirts with flags on them for all our events. I also said that I didn't think shaun white did anything wrong. It is not up to me to decide what is a "representation" and what isnt. If it has red white and blue stars and stripes, then IMHO its a representation. If you dont agree, FINE.
I am damned proud that I support the VFW, and I am not Propping myself up. I belong to support the VETERANS. I get no honor other than that support. I dont feel I am 'special', but I do somehting to support men and women who sacrificed for ME and YOU, they are the ones who are speical.
FINALLY, as far as UCs post is concerned, I am shocked that it is even allowed to remain here. If this is what the mods think is proper forum postings, and allow it to stay there....then this is EXACLTY why I stopped posting on epicski three years ago. Certain people get coddled and get away with completely inflammatory posts as that one. Others, such as me, get to sit here and take it. but the MINUTE I say something slightly controversial, I get bitch slapped. ENOUGH.
