    Marines are always taught:

    1) Keep your priorities in order and

    2) Know when to act without hesitation.

    A Marine was attending some college courses
    between assignments. He had completed missions
    in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    One of the courses had a professor who was
    an avowed atheist and a member of the ACLU.
    One day he shocked the class when he came
    in, looked to the ceiling and flatly stated,
    "God, if you are real, then I want you to knock
    me off this platform. I'll give you exactly fifteen
    minutes."

    The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a
    pin drop. Ten minuteswent by and the professor
    proclaimed, "Here I am God. I'm still waiting."

    It got down to the last couple of minutes
    when the Marine got out of his chair, went up
    to the professor and cold-cocked him; knocking
    him off the platform. The professor was out cold.
    The Marine went back to his seat and sat there,
    silently. The other students were shocked and
    stunned and sat there looking on in silence.

    The professor eventually came to, noticeably
    shaken, looked at the Marine and asked, "What
    the hell is the matter with you? Why did you do
    that?"

    The Marine calmly replied, "God was too busy
    today taking care of America's soldiers who are
    protecting your right to say stupid shit and
    act like an asshole. So He sent me."

    a "joke" that is a pretty prime example of why the current administration is failing so miserably, and our soldiers are dying in a war based on a lie. alternative views get knocked to the floor before even being heard. i hope america comes back someday. you know, like freedom of speech, guy who gets the most votes wins and all that.

    Which is more important?

    1. Snapping off a one-liner at a professor you don't agree with.

    2. Not going to jail.
    Why did he wait ten minutes?

    Marines = Warriors under God's charge

    Sounds like a Wet Dream for the current administration. Then they could have their crusades anywhere that can be deemed blasphemous,

    I have heard that one before and have saved it on my computer. It is so TRUE. I just wish I were the Marine who Punched out the professor. Our military fights for the protection of the smart and Stupid in this country. I guess the Stupid just need a little wake up call. That is what the Marine did, gave the professor a wake up call. I'm not in the Military but I am going to Iraq in a month to teach and observe the Iraq Police for a year. This is my way of serving my country. Giving back a little of what I have been given. It's my gift to the people of Iraq. I have been a Police Officer for over 25 years. I hope I can teach them something worthwhile and leave them something to make them a better person.

    Well there you go. My opinion. I do not agree with all the president has done or will do BUT he is still MY president and we all should stand behind him and the troops overseas even if we disagree.

    If you don't feel you can support the troops then I suggest you move to France or some other country where you can be more free to damn the USA. Just don't do it here.:mad:

    Apparently Marines aren't taught logic.

    edit: nevermind, the whole quote is italicized.
