I have on of these on my truck. Only because I prefer that people support us troops, rather then spit in our face like in Vietnam.
Mine is just plain yellow though, no gay little sayings. If it did have a saying I would want it to be; "Support our troops, not our wars."
Or maybe; "This ribbon provides more armour then Dick Cheney will."

Or how about, "Support our Troops, bring them home!"

That could work, but I think I've seen one like that.
Plus it's been played. I like new material.

Yes, for the most part, joking.


Bush sucks, no joke.

reply to #11

"tie a yellow ribbon around an old oak tree"
came from a song by that exact same title, copyrighted in 1972 and written by Irwin Levine and L. Russell Brown.

Levine, when asked how he came up with the song, said he had heard the story while he was in the Army.  :shock:


Since my Husband is IN the army and used to be in the Marine Corps... I asked him about it... he then launched into the following cadence.......

there was a girl who wore a yellow ribbon
she wore it in the springtime in the merry month of may
and if you asked her why the hell she wore it
she wore it for that young marine so far far away
far away      far away
she wore it for that young marine so far far away

around the block she pushed a baby carriage
pushed in the springtime in the merry month of may
If you ask her why the hell she pushed it
she pushed it for that young marine so far far away
far away     far away
she pushed it for that young marine so far far away

and on the porch her daddy had a shot gun
he had it in the springtime in the merry month of may
if you ask him why the hell he had it
he had it for that young marine so far far away
far away   far away
he had it for that young marine so far far away :lol:


MORE HISTORY:

It turns out that Sidney Robertson Cowell of California recorded a song in 1938 entitled,
 “Round Her Neck She Wore a Yellow Ribbon.”
But then it was learned that there is a Philadelphia printing from 1838 that copies still older British versions of the same thing. Also, Parsons reported that in the last act of Othello, Desdamona sings one of the song’s lyric ancestors.

Some believe that the song was also sung during the American Civil War.
John Wayne, the “Duke,” and Joanne Dru starred in a 1949 movie release named “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon,” which took its title from the song, and was set in the Civil War.

If you get someone who can sing.
As far as lyrics, I like the one about 'I pulled out my uzi and I began to spray.'

From Cool Hand Luke:

Boss Paul: Sorry, Luke. I'm just doing my job. You gotta appreciate that.
Luke: Nah - calling it your job don't make it right, Boss.

Doesn't matter, its about having principles, chief.  Its not "Kill or be killed" it's "Follow orders that take away the rights of others or don't"  Regardless of how slowly your jarhead mind works its still responsible for every action it takes.  If those actions lead to the unnecessary death of a person then you are the same scum as the person who ordered you to do it.

Who says it's unnecessary?
I want to kill me a rag-head. Fucking Muslim bastards.
Plus, FYI, jarheads are Marines, not Army.
