Curious as to why you think it's "dumb".

I think it's kind of cool to come up with a way for more people to show their appreciation to the men and women who put their lives on the line in order for all of us to have the freedoms we enjoy. Most people don't have the stones to say "thank you", so why is coming up with something for those people "stupid"? Would it be the whole point of having to do that because the country lacks stones? If so, then I agree.


I agree and I disagree. The whole hand over the heart gesture is pretty silly and anybody would feel like a tool doing that. But the sentiment of saying thanks is a good one. I'm a big veterans day guy and give thanks to the people who fought in the World Wars but there is no reason we should have to wait for a war to be over or for soldiers to die before we say thanks to the soldiers defending us, regardless of what we think of the war itself.

That being said I think that the soldiers would much rather see an end to the stop loss policy, an end to the reneging on college tuition and bonuses and renewed funding of veterans programs. That would go a lot further than the hand over the heart gesture.

Don't think I don't want to thank them, but I would be 85% of the soldiers would have no idea why people are making that gesture at them. Shoot... Some of the people in that video looked like they had no clue.

One more thing about this video. It said to wear red on Fridays to show support for the troops. That's strange b/c my sister told me that means something else. She works for a big company in Richmond and years ago they banned confederate flags on company property. You weren't allowed to have them up in your car or wear one on your clothes. Many people got mad and they started wearing red on Fridays in protest. The red shirts were supposed to be worn in place of the flag. She said it's a big thing and that hundreds of people have been doing it for years. Anybody heard about something like this?

Hadn't heard that, but confederate flags aren't too unusual here. They aren't everywhere and you most likely won't see one per day or anything, but I still see one occasionally.

JT, I get what you're saying and my response would be a book most likely (not due to you, just the situation), so I haven't decided if I'm going to type it all up or not just yet. :-D For now, suffice it to say that if that trend were to gain steam, enlisted military would informed and well aware of what it meant. ;-D

I know bigHort likes to wear a red shirt and go to Disneyland once every year, but I think that's for a totally different purpose. :-D
