Too Much Freedom

I went out last night at an attempt to be social, however I usually end up being a spectator. I love to people watch. What I learned last night that bars should not have CNN on the TV for people to watch while drinking. I listened to a drunken woman last night that had me boiling, but one of our country's best came to the rescue.

Female (attempting to read the subtitles on CNN): We just need to get the hell out of there. Those people didn't do anything to us. We just send all these testosterone filled macho men over there to play GI Joe on those innocent people.

At this point, she has everyone sitting at the bar starring at her. And then all of a sudden, this guy walks over there with two shots and hands her one. I thought he was going to drink to that until I heard him say:

Ma'am, it's because of those GI Joe's over there that you can say stupid shit! I love this country and that we are free, but maybe we have too much freedom, because dumb people can roam the country and annoy the hell out of the rest of us.

And he slammed his shot back, laid the glass in front of her on the bar, turned away and went back to his table, as she held her shot in her hand, speechless.

"People sleep peacefully in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
