Just for fun

I got one of these mass e-mails (one of what seems like thousands) from a family member. She sent it to about twenty five other people-

You will not see this heart-stopping photo on the front page of the NY Times, nor on the lead story of the major news networks.
The protestors
 at Montebello High School took the American flag off the school's flag pole and hung it upside down while putting up the Mexican flag over it.  (*See pictures below*)

Pass this along to every American citizen in your address books and to every representative in the state and federal government.. If you choose to remain uninvolved, do not be amazed when you no longer have a nation to call your own nor anything you have worked for left since it will be 'redistributed' to the activists while you are so peacefully staying out of the 'fray'. Check history, it is full of nations/empires that disappeared when its citizens no longer held their core beliefs and values. One person CAN make a difference

So just for fun I replied to it and forwarded it to all of the same e-mail addresses-

To all you jackasses that are upset over an upside down American flag at a California school- it's called the First Ammendment. They can do what they like with their flag you fucking babies.

This is the lone response I got back-

Fuck you ass hole don't disrrespect the country get the fuck out and the first amendmant was not meant to hang our flag upside down it give a jerk off like you the right to show how stupid you are!

I was going to write the person back explaining that his run-on sentence was filled with grammatical errors, but who am I to judge.

I love how upset they got from just a bunch of high school students, who probably did it more as a prank than anything else.

It's true, I'm sure it's just some prank but it's amazing to see how something as incredibly minor stirs up such over reactive patriotism while America might be in the midst of one of it's darkest historical times. I guess it's easier to focus on the small stuff. The big stuff is too frightening to comprehend. On a different note, I wish I could water board my mortgage loan officer.
