Definition of a patriot: 

a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion.


You said I was not a patriot = saying I don't love my country.

You sir are the lowest form of person I have ever met.  Please know I am praying for your soul.

Petty disagreements aside, I would never say someone doesn't love their country just because they have a different view of things than I do.  I believe Dewey and Barak Obama love this country, they just have a different vision for what makes America great than I do.  Saying someone doesn't love their country because they disagree with the President, or your political view, is not understanding what America is all about.

To be fair, you're only taking part of the definition. 

I'll add you and bluedog probably have different interpretations of defend and devotion.

Here is the whole definition - Dictionary.com

1. a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion.
2. a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, especially of individual rights, against presumed interference by the federal government.
3. (initial capital letter) Military. a U.S. Army antiaircraft missile with a range of 37 miles (60 km) and a 200-pound (90 kg) warhead, launched from a tracked vehicle with radar and computer guidance and fire control.

FTR, I was talking about the first definition you posted.

I tend to find #2 off-putting or unbecoming a la "I'm a hero." It is far better to be recognized and called one by others.

I can see how I did that - as I sad before, yellowdog is welcome to be a man and stand behind what he said and let me know which of those I am not currently doing.

I doubt he will though, he isn't much for standing behind what he says.

You realize he is an ex-marine correct.  Rarely ever brings up his service, only around marine holidays, which every marine I know celebrates.

I do give you that blue questions others commitment to the country (and bible).  Sometimes when he disagrees.

I suspect that numerous people question Obama's love for the country.  That his actions often seemed to purposely undermine our countries overall best interests.  

There are certainly people that live in my area that have beliefs that justify actions that certainly seem to cross into un-patriotic.  There were some nutcase peace nicks that took it upon themselves to take pictures of people going in and out of military bases, posting those pictures online and identifying the servicemen.   The obvious implications being that enemy forces would know who these guys are and may target their families.  

Or the EcoTerrorists, that purposely put large nails in trees to try and harm lumber men and break their equipment.

How could I not know he is an ex-marine - he just told us yesterday.  Rubs our noses in it when he deems us "unpatriotic" - he definitely fits #2 more than #1 IMO.

As to the bigger question,  I am not sure who gets to decide what "love of the country means".  Just because someone has a different view of something than you doesn't mean they don't love it.  This country was founded on the ideal that different views were welcomed and accepted.  When we start saying someone doesn't "love our country" because they have a different view of how tax dollars should be used or whether gay marriage should be legal or not, we lose a little of what makes us special.  JMO of course.  Feel free to call me whatever name you want yellowdog.

FYI - A Marine is never an "ex-Marine", if they are not actively serving. Those who know and understand label us properly as "retired Marine", if we no longer are on active status. Thank you.

I thought dog or early would clarify for uwa but Bama got it.

It's former Marine, many dont accept even former, never Ex and they say once a Marine, always a Marine. You can bust dog's balls for many things but his service as a former Marine gives us all license to be as big a dickweed as we want to be. Like dewy, we all have permission to be keyboard warrriors

I don't think anyone has questioned blue's service, and many of us have said we appreciated it, as we do all of you.

That isn't the issue.

Ex was my bad for sure.  Former or Marine going forward.  BAMA/KIR - Thanks for correcting me.

I agree 100%. I think you misread my intent of mentioning.

I am making a point because we have more of a right to speak whatever our mind because of freedoms our nation gives us.

Y'all are both full of schitt. Y'all are more alike than not. I know both of you are good people and would gladly walk a night watch for each other, would be there when called upon. I think you both when called would be 3%ers, along with woody, bhblue and Lost_1.

No big deal, no disrespect intended appreciate your insight, conversation and direction. Took me awhile to warm up to you because I hated your candidate at times, but warm up I did.

I told Pabar one time, it is far easier being a conservative in Texas, Bama or Georgia, than to be a conservative in California, Oregon or Washington. People like FIB, pabar and spazsdad dealing with what they go through in what once was the greatest state in this country, California. What a shame.

Georgia is a very interesting place. 

I have no idea where this state goes, but it is never dull.  In 10 years, it may be very hard to be a Conservative here too.

In the words of pabar you haven't been here long enough. Bama brought it up.

The bluedog chum was meant in a general context, not necessarily here on this thread. Meant as a general ribbing to quit letting him play you like a fiddle.

What I really meant was no disrespect was meant by any of you and no apology was necessary even if bluedog called for one, it was a preemptive post. Bluedog and pabar got in one of those stoopid squabbles that forced me to blow my D-day and Pearl Harbor thread up.
