If you ain't served your nation in combat you ain't no patriot.

I'd be interested, DMT, to know why you limit patriotism to someone who hase not only served in the military, but seen combat.

According to Dictionary.com, the term "patriot" is defines as such:

pa·tri·ot
[pey-tree-uh t, -ot or, esp. British, pa-tree-uh t] Show IPA
noun
1.
a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion.
2.
a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, especially of individual rights, against presumed interference by the federal government.
3.
( initial capital letter ) Military . a U.S. Army antiaircraft missile with a range of 37 miles (60 km) and a 200-pound (90 kg) warhead, launched from a tracked vehicle with radar and computer guidance and fire control.



Doesn't specify combat in this definition.

I don't accept those emasculated, watered-downed and co-opted terms. patriotism was born of blood and revolution. Librarians, politicians (no matter how many they ordered to their deaths) are not patriots. Declaring love for one's country makes one a patriot? Lah dee dah.

By his definition, only George Washington is the ONLY patriotic American President.

And also, almost every member of congress is NOT a patriot.

Correct you are.

I am trolling you. Every post is s troll. I am also smart, AND a peacenik. I hate war.

I am also perfectly serious. I don't care if you neverserveds get your doilies deranged by it either. A partiot FIGHTS for her country, accept no substitutes.

Watching Patton does not make one a patriot. Posting left wing sh#t on the internet... not patriot. Giving away some dental care or dropping a buck in the salvation army bucket? Compassionate and kind to be sure, but not a patriot.

Many patriots were killers, out and out. The may have done far more harm to their country than good, over all. But they were still patriots.

Sorry of your lack of service causes you discomfort but if it does bother you its your load to bear, not mine.

All you patriots?

Thank you for your f*#king panic-driven patriot act. Now how do you like your definition?

I fear, DMT, that you took for gospel something you were told by those who held authority over you in the military; something that was told to you by design - to instill a seed in your mind that, because you went out to kill or be killed, that made you a higher caliber of citizen than others.

If so - then you fell for just another brand of religion yourself.

Lol. Feathers are ruffled, oh my!

Are you a patriot happigurl?

Is Jerry Brown?

How about your mailwoman?

The kid down at the grocery?

Are we a nation of patriots? Does a forced swearing of allegiance to a flag of cloth opt one in?

Sheesh. You people.... Citizens of the Empire, your togas are open!

I don't consider myself a patriot. I will fight for my life pretty much only so long as I still have Teddy to defend and care for. Once he passes, I have no obligation to another being. So I guess I am a Tediot!

Patriot... I guess it is born of an allegience to the patriachy. Hmmm...my country, my land, is Mother Nature. Not some group of old men..

Its born of combat, period. Ain't gonna let no neverserveds claim it without a rassling match. The majority of those wankers posting to Dr Fs Bullshit Show are not patriots they're the opposite - carpetbaggers on the backs of real patriots, all the while ignoring the blood upon which their beds are made -liberal and conservative alike.

If you ain't served in combat, don't disrespect them that did by claiming to be a patriot. That's like accepting a purple heart because the General's bookcase fell on you while moving from West Point to Ft Benning during the time of war. Charlatans.

I love America for a lot of things, mostly for opportunity
I hate America for a lot of things, mostly its ignorant, selfish people

But I hate blind nationalism most of all

I've literally travelled "around the world in 180 days," and have been to 35 countries. I've seen a lot of good and lot of really bad. A lot of good people stuck in really bad circumstances with no opportunity.

Dood, I'm pretty sure metrosexuals can't be patriots.
At least not with that sweater.

That's a nice sweater I have one the same color, in my suitcase goes with my eyes ;-). I received many comments about it in NYC from women and men alike.

:-) I have anxiety issues on flights home after long weeks. F*#king with outraged neverserveds about their unfulfilled desire to be patriots is therapeutic. Being absolutely 100% correct makes it even more fun.

I'm feeling better already.

Do you know the Battle Hymn of the Chickenhawk?
