America vs. liberals
The first story is about Marines in Target being targeted for wearing their uniforms.
"I didn't want to make a scene," Rodriguez said. "We were representing Marines anyway just by wearing the uniform, so I kept my mouth shut."
Then, Rodriguez said, "this retired Navy SEAL came up behind us and he said, 'You forget what... country this is,' and he goes off on (the assistant manager) saying, 'You have no right to throw them out of Target just because they are talking to one of your employees.' "
"He got everything out in the open that I was thinking, so I kind of left with a grin," Rodriguez said.
I just bought $1500.00 dollars worth of baby furniture, supplies from Target and I plan on writing a letter to the company asking them to apologize to the Marines involved and to reprimand the manager who jumped to conclusions about their purpose in the store. Target also partners with Amazon, I can buy my books and baby stuff at other stores.
Elizabeth Edwards says she is scared of the "rabid, rabid Republican" who owns property across the street from her Orange County home -- and she doesn't want her kids going near the gun-toting neighbor.OMG, a man from the country who greats strangers walking around on his property with a gun. The problem is that as a liberal, Elisabeth Edwards, has an irrational fear of guns. Guns are responsible for killing so the only safe option is no guns. You would think she would try and start a dialogue with him to get his point of view. Maybe he has a good reason to chase interlopers off his property.
Edwards, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, particularly recalls the time neighbor Monty Johnson brought out a gun while chasing workers investigating a right of way near his property. The Edwards family has yet to meet Johnson in person.
A "Rabid, rabid Republican" in Edwards' mind owns a gun, protects his property, and supports Rudy Giuliani. This is what happens when limousine liberals move into the sticks. Their values clash with the locals. Unfortunately, it appears the Edwards are going to drive this man from his property. (See the last line in the article.) With their behavior I wouldn't want to live across the road from them either. The Edwards do have a sense of entitlement.
Johnson said he has lived his entire life on the property, which he said his family purchased before the Great Depression. He said he's spent a lot of money to try and fix up the 42-acre tract.
"I have to budget. I have to live within my means," Johnson said. "I don't have millions of dollars to fix the place."
Johnson, who has posted a "Go Rudy Giuliani 2008" sign on a fence just 100 feet from the entrance to the Edwards' driveway, has criticized Edwards for the scale of their nearby home. The property and home, which includes an indoor basketball court, an indoor handball court and an indoor pool, is valued at $5.3 million.
