    Received this from a friend and thought some of you might get a chuckle out of it as I did.


    "Here's a quote from a government employee who
    witnessed a recent interaction between an elderly
    woman and antiwar protester in a Metro station in DC:

    There were protesters on the train platform handing
    out pamphlets on the evils of America. I politely declined
    to take one.

    An elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator
    and a young (20ish) female protester offered her a
    phamphlet, which she politely declined.

    The young protester put her hand on the old woman's
    shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice
    said, "Lady, don't you care about the children of Iraq?"

    The old woman looked up at her and said, "Honey, my father
    died in France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea
    and a son in Vietnam. All three died so you could have the
    right to stand here and bad mouth our country. If you touch me
    again, I'll stick this umbrella up our a$$ and open it."

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!
