First of all, thank you for writing such a great article and for realizing the respect that service men and women all over the world deserve. It gives me great enthusiasm to read an article, such as yours, that depicts the overpaid and pompous players in the NFL, like Sapp, Rice, and Shockey. I am enthused and motivated because I realize that it doesn’t matter what people like the ones mentioned above, and others like them, think. We don’t serve our country for pride and glory, we do it because it’s our duty and we care about the citizens in our society. We want them to enjoy the freedoms and liberties our forefathers set out for us so long ago. The money, publicity, and fancy material items that our society thinks measure success do not matter to those who are fighting for their country.
Of course, I love professional sports, especially football, and I think there are some truly admirable players in the league. However, I think people need to realize that some of the athletes we admire as children should not be the ones we emulate as adults. People like you and the soldiers should be the ones we try to take after and learn from. Well, thanks again from service men and women everywhere. You are a true patriot and speaking the truth is always more admirable than thinking, because you are famous, you have a voice that matters.
As for Mr. Tillman and his brother, I respect them and they are in my prayers. They are doing the right thing and doing it for the right reasons. They have a daunting task ahead of them but I know they have the heart, desire, drive, determination, and skills to complete their tasks and accomplish their missions. I emulate them. Thanks again.p>Sincerely, br> — CDT/SGT Jonathan King br> Army ROTC br> Bowling Green State University /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
