off of TJ’s site.

A United States 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 the professor shocked the class when he came in. He 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 15 minutes.”

The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop. Ten minutes went 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 protecting America’s
soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid shit and act like an asshole.” “So He sent me.”

We have too many heroes lost and not enough workout days to commemorate them. I think it’s fitting to always think of the men and women in service, whether military or peace officers and public safety, as we do our workouts. A bit of motivation to throw a little of our sweat and maybe a drop of blood on the floor in their honor.

Now the PC is to be tolerant of the intolerant.
The fundamentalist Muslims can scream to the whole world that they don’t like a cartoon, and everyone censors themselves- What the *&^% is that ?
It is acceptable to be intolerant of others now ?
The world is upside down, again.
