Subject: Fwd: The Umbrella.... A Touching Story

Subject: The Umbrella.... A Touching Story noon, a group of protesters
was gathered outside the grocery store handing out pamphlets on the
"evils" of America.
I politely declined to take one.
There was an elderly woman behind me, holding an umbrella, and a young
(20-ish) female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she also
politely declined.
The young protester gently put her hand on the old woman's shoulder
and, in a patronizing voice, asked her, "Don't you care about the
unfairness of American life?"
The old woman looked up at her and said: "Honey, my father died in
France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea, and a son in
All three died so a naïve, ignorant, self-centered, self-righteous,
bimbo like you could have the right to stand here and badmouth our
wonderful country.
If you touch me again, I'll shove this umbrella up your *** and open it."

I take exception to calling this the JOTD. I realize it’s a fictional story but the point is it is not a joke. This is happening in every day America right now. Why do we need elderly American women to teach us what is right?
