Received from a friend this morning:
To All My Friends,
Over the years we’ve known one another I have made a fool of my self at times and sounded like an empty headed braggart at others. I’ve berated others who demonstrated a lack of courage to stand up for America at times. I want to share an experience I had the other day which I feel proud of. Now there is a little shame on my part hidden in it, but over all I feel good for having spoken up for our culture and national pride.
As I stood in line to pay for fresh produce I picked up at a friend’s produce stand here in the Seattle area, I saw I was waiting behind a Muslim woman who was checking out ahead of me. She was dressed in the usual costume they wear, which is a black robe and shawl. There was not one spot on her that was visible except for her eyes which looked out between the slits of material covering her face. From the little skin I saw it was easy to see she was from the Middle East. Not a big deal. The reason for writing this is how she paid. Out of a well filled purse she took out a wallet which contained many credit cards. As usual it was no surprise to see an Arab woman with the means to live well. But she produced a card I recognized as the new food stamp card, which the government doesn’t like to call it any more because it embarrasses the users. I asked the clerk if that was a food stamp card and she replied it was.
For some reason at that time and place the idea of this perfectly healthy and obviously wealthy woman paying for her food with my tax dollars just pissed me off no end. Especially since so many of our troops are still being murdered over in her country for their freedom. As I looked at the back of her head I said, “You ought to be ashamed of yourself for using that to pay for food. You are as healthy and able to work as anybody.” She did not turn to face me nor did she say anything. Next I said, “I can see why you cover your face with the mask, you should be ashamed to be living off other people who pay for the food you eat.”
Today, when I stopped by, my friend the owner asked what happened and if I knew anything about it. I told him what occurred and why I said what I did. Let me share some of that with you. When immigrants come to America they have to understand the need to assimilate into our culture, but these damn Arabs have the idea of freedom all turned around. They think we have to alter our culture to accommodate them and their religious laws and beliefs. Well my friends to me that is a lot of cow manure, several truck loads of it in fact. Today the woman called my buddy up and complained profusely how I treated her and made all sorts of threats to do this and that.
As we both stood in the back laughing our butts off we understood how two old seventy plus year old guys feel about losing our nation to these damn people who think they can come over here and force us to accept them along with their culture and to add insult to that idea, threaten to take us to court and use our laws against us. This is another load of the previously mentioned cow manure.
Any way, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. It I sound prejudiced to some of you, keep this thought in mind. I’ll be go to hell if I will stand by and remain silent like a pansy with no testicles while our nation is swallowed up by any nationality or religion that’s not ours. If that makes me prejudice then by God that’s who I am and proud as hell about it.
