It was in response to some derogatory, racial off-topic comments made by 2 posters which have since been removed.

Freedom is a mere word that has been thrown around to create hope or the warm fuzzies to create an illusion that does not exist. an attemp to control the masses when we think we are getting something rare and precious in return.

Ur the dumbass, u did make derogatory comments! But why waste anymore time arguing with someone with such a limited vocabulary which is a major sign of intelligence or lack thereof. I can see how smart u r with terms like cocksmoker & cuss words. BTW, "if u don't like the post then don't read it".

I've read this post from the beginning before the comments from this "person" were deleted. I know what I'm talking about. They saved Matt's comment but not theirs. Interesting? Why r they getting so defensive if they didn't say anything derogatory? I'm not backing out of anything, if u want to sit there & incite an argument then have at it. See, didn't have to use profanity to get a point across!:)

If he can't pledge the Allegiance to the flag he doesn't belong in an American courtroom He need's to be disbard or spend time in jail to give him time to think about just how good we have it here.

All the folks that whine and complain and say they shouldn't be forced to do something they don't believe in should be sent to live in other Countries that they don't have a choice as to what they believe in, what they wear and what they say.
