    It is about time to dust off the old Merle Haggard song, "The Fightn' Side of Me".

    This version is more geared to todays world.

    Be sure to watch it till the end to read the message from a
    Lt. Colonel in the 101st Airborne, U.S. Army.

    From another old vet.

    I'm just glad for the BOC. We all believe in the America that we grew up with, not what politicians are trying to make a profit from.

    Thanks Dayton , I do hope that this email gets around. I am tired of the media trying to make me feel sorry for poor terrorists who brought all of they're trouble to our door step. The USA can and should step on them like the vermin they are. Now if we can keep the politicians on the jobs they was elected to do instead of trying to make themselves look good at the expense of our Troops, maybe we could get something done right. Later Andy
