    :D

    Rules for Non Military Personnel
    1.. The next time you see an adult talking (or wearing a hat) during the
    playing of the National Anthem ... bust his chops.

    2.. When you witness firsthand someone burning the American Flag in protest...
    bust their chops...

    3.. Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the highest amount
    of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone doing otherwise, quietly pull them
    aside and explain how these Veterans fought for the very freedom they bask in
    every second. Enlighten them on the many sacrifices these Veterans made to make
    this Nation great. Then hold them down while a Disabled Veteran busts their
    chops....

    4.. (GUYS) If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you were.
    Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDU's), telling others that you used to be
    "Special Forces," and collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay if you
    were still seven. Now, it will only make you look stupid and get your chops
    busted....

    5.. Next time you come across an Air Force member, do not ask them, "Do you
    fly a jet?" Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot. Such ignorance deserves a
    good chop busting (children are exempt).

    6.. If you witness someone calling the U.S. Coast Guard non military, inform
    them of their mistake...and THEN bust their chops....

    7.. Roseanne Barr's singing of the National Anthem is not a blooper...it was a
    disgrace and disrespectful. Laugh, and sooner or later your chops will get
    busted.

    8.. Next time Old Glory (U.S. flag) prances by during a parade, get on your
    damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over your heart. Quietly
    thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to be carrying her...of
    course, failure to do either of those could earn you a severe chop busting...

    9.. What Jane Fonda did during the Vietnam War makes her the enemy. The proper
    word to describe her is "traitor." Just mention her nomination for "Woman of the
    Year" and get your chops busted.

    10.. Don't try to discuss politics with a military member or a veteran. We are
    Americans and we all bleed the same regardless of our party affiliation. Our
    Chain of Command, is to include our commander in Chief. The President (for those
    who didn't know) is our CIC regardless of political party. We have no inside
    track on what happens inside those big important buildings where all those
    representatives" meet. All we know is that when those civilian representatives
    screw up the situation, they call upon the military to go straighten it out. The
    military member might direct you to Oliver North. (I can see him busting your
    chops already.)

    11.. "Your mama wears combat boots" never made sense to me ... stop saying it!
    If she did, she would most likely be a vet and probably bust your chops!

    12.. Bin Laden and the Taliban are not communists, so stop saying "Let's go
    kill those Commie's!!!" And stop asking us where he is!!!! Crystal balls are not
    standard issue in the military. That reminds me ... if you see anyone calling
    those damn psychic phone numbers; let me know, so I can go bust their chops...

    13.. Flyboy (Air Force), Jar Head (Marines), Grunt (Army), Squid (Navy) etc,
    are terms of endearment WE use describing each other. Unless you are a service
    member or vet, you have not earned the right to use them. Could get your chops
    busted.

    14.. Last but not least, whether or not you become a member of the military,
    support our troops and their families: Every Thanksgiving and religious holiday
    that you enjoy with family and friends please remember that there are,
    literally, tens of thousands of Soldiers, Sailors and Marines far from home
    wishing they could be with theirs. While you eat your turkey, ham or steak and
    wash it down with wine or juices, THEY sit in fighting holes, feeling fortunate
    if they have clean water to wash down their MRE's. While your children say
    their prayers asking God to help bring daddy (or mommy) home earlier tomorrow,
    theirs simply ask God to help BRING THEM HOME. Thank God for our military and
    the sacrifices they make every day. Without them, this great country of ours
    would get IT's chops busted....

    If you can't figure out what "bust his chops" equates to, ASK A VET. They'll
    gladly demonstrate for you.

    A chops busting is a little mild for a few of these. Most of the time, it's appropriate, but if I see someone disrespect a military member or the flag, it's time to whip out some hardware. If I saw someone spit on a member of the military, I'd twist his ear until he cleaned off the spit, apoligized, and saluted. If I saw somebody burning a flag in any way other than an official retiring ceremony, I'd pull out the gun. I might not use it, but it would take some persuasion for me not to.

    This is the version I received.. Sounds much better to me.. :)

    FROM HOMELAND SECURITY, WE NOW HAVE SOME EASY TO FOLLOW CIVILIAN RULES OF CONDUCT.

    Military Rules for Non-Military Personnel

    "Dear Civilians, "We know that the current state of affairs in our great nation have many civilians up in arms and excited to join the military. For those of you who can't join, you can still lend a hand. Here are a few of the areas where we would like your assistance:

    (1) The next time you see an adult talking (or wearing a hat) during the playing of the National Anthem---kick their ass.

    (2) When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the American Flag in protest---kick their ass.

    (3) Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the highest amount of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone doing otherwise, quietly pull them aside and explain how these veterans fought for the very freedom they bask in every second. Enlighten them on the many sacrifices these veterans made to make this Nation great. Then hold them down while a disabled veteran kicks their ass.

    (4) (GUYS) If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you were. Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs), telling others that you used to be "Special Forces," and collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay when you were seven years old. Now, it will only make you look stupid and get your ass kicked.

    (5) Next time you come across an Air Force member, do not ask them, "Do you fly a jet?" Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot. Such ignorance deserves an ass-kicking (children are exempt).

    (6) If you witness someone calling the US Coast Guard 'non-military', inform them of their mistake---and kick their ass.

    (7) Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a parade, get on your damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over your heart. Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to be carrying her---of course, failure to do either of those could earn you a severe ass-kicking.

    (8) Don't try to discuss politics with a military member or a veteran.. We are Americans, and we all bleed the same, regardless of our party affiliation. Our Chain of Command is to include our Commander-In-Chief (CinC). The President (for those who didn't know) is our CinC regardless of political party. We have no inside track on what happens inside those big important buildings where all those representatives meet. All we know is that when those civilian representatives screw up the situation, they call upon the military to go straighten it out. If you keep asking us the same stupid questions repeatedly, you will get your ass kicked!

    (9) 'Your mama wears combat boots' never made sense to me---stop saying it! If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore, could kick your ass!

    (10) Bin Laden and the Taliban are not Communists, so stop saying 'Let's go kill those Commies!' And stop asking us where he is! Crystal balls are not standard issue in the military. That reminds me---if you see anyone calling those damn psychic phone numbers, let me know, so I can go kick their ass.

    (11) 'Flyboy' (Air Force), 'Jarhead' (Marines), 'Grunt' (Army), 'Squid' (Navy), Â’Puddle Pirate' (Coast Guard), etc., are terms of endearment we use describing each other. Unless you are a service member or vet, you have not earned the right to use them. That could get your ass kicked.

    (12) Last, but not least, whether or not you become a member of the military, support our troops and their families. Every Thanksgiving and religious holiday that you enjoy with family and friends, please remember that there are literally thousands of sailors and troops far from home wishing they could be with their families. Thank God for our military and the sacrifices they make every day. Without them, our country would get its ass kicked."

    "It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press.

    "It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech.

    "It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate.

    "It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag."

    "If you can read this, thank a teacher"

    "If you are reading it in English, thank a veteran."

    i remember hearing something a few years back about this. someone was burning Old Glory in a protest and some patriotic vet ran up to him and busted his ass up! well of course he went to jail and of course protest boy sued him. of course he plead guilty. im not sure how much protest boy wanted for injury, but the judge wasnt going to have anypart of it i guess.
    from what i can remember the judge said it was a crime what the vet did, so he must pay. he awarded protext boy something like $1.00. i couldnt believe that one! wish i could find that story again, but hell i dont even know how long ago it was.
