Fw: The Sign

This is pretty neat......(a couple minute video)... Have you ever seen one of our military walking past you and wanted to convey to them your thanks, but weren't sure how, or it felt awkward?

Recently, a gentleman from Seattle created a gesture which could be used to express your thanks and has started a movement to get the word out..

Please everybody take just a moment to watch..... The Gratitude Campaign ...and then forward it to your friends! THEN START USING THE SIGN.

This seems ok, but a bit overwrought(as is the wont of contards). Too bad, though, that we have to have troops putting themselves in harms way solely for the purposes of enriching Dickhead Cheney & the Bush Crime family.

Of course, if ya really want to pat YOURSELF on the back, you can spend $5 on a sack lunch for some random soldier!!! ;-)

I'm pretty sure the traditional Muslim greeting involves touching the forehead, lips, and chest, and then waving the hand out in a similar manner.

Like anon says, I mostly feel bad for our soldiers because our idiot politicians put them in harm's way in the first place.

Hmm, that looks like mime for "I'm pregnant."

Here's a nice way to show you care: join the military and do your part. Vote for candidates who support soldiers and veterans. Donate to charities. Adopt a pet whose soldier owners got deployed. Volunteer at the veteran's center.

Or just wear a flag pin and put a magnet on your car. Whatever.

I'm tickled that wingnuts are grateful for my military service and also want me to die a fiery death for my political and religious beliefs.

Join the military and do your part?? Hey Snarla: LOL!!! U R too fuunneeee... har har. LMAO!!

JOINING the military is for CHUMPS.

PRETENDING that you are ever so supportive (in heart-rending, overly emotional, back-patting ways) of our dear & glorious troops is politically astute.

Let the chumps do the dirty work while I reckon up my profits from the filthy lucre of owning stock in KBR, Halliburton, Xe, Wackenhut, etc.

I'll toss the troops a bone: here's my muzlin, pregnant salute to ya... and don't expect decent health care when ya return. GROW UP and buy some insurance, and then get offa my lawn, loser!

According to the video, not only are we supposed to adopt this new solidarity gesture, we're supposed to be wearing red shirts on Fridays?

Didn't get the memo on that.
