    Asking the Board on this: “What is a decent American?” In my lifetime it requires six things.
    A.) Love this Republic and support the Constitution that created it.
    B.) Try to go to church on Sunday or Synagogue on Friday, or follow God....as best you can.
    C. ) Wear the uniform and defend this great experiment that happened in 1787 and continues today.
    D. ) Love your family and be a good parent.
    E.) Give back to your community.
    F.) Defend against elements that would destroy these things.

    Strong sensibility in judgement apart from popular narco driven psychomaniacal tides (what is popular).

    Its my only standing prerequisite to 'decent'.

    B is voluntary, and mostly a complete waste of time. The rest is pretty good.

    I would agree with all but 'B' as well. And I would be cautious of what you call "defend" in 'F'. If they are physically destroying something, then defend it or them. If they are trying to make changes in our society, be careful whether we are defending something worth defending.

    I would agree with D, E, and F. I agree with the sentiment of A, but not the wording. I do not believe one must love this country to be a "decent American". As for B, and C, you can have your opinion, but I respectfully disagree.

    Based upon the look on her face, should we assume this is to be right after ingesting some powerful, mind-altering chemicals?
