“Since when are Scottish Bag Pipers, that represent the notorious Black Watch Highlanders, allowed to participate in our parades? Now they even are allowed the honor of leading the funeral processions, in many cases, and ironically, for our deceased Veterans. Our American history teaches us that these Scots helped the English fight our American Colonists, killing tens of thousands of our people, during the Revolutionary War. My family had not one, but several, ancestors that fought in the Revolutionary War to help create our country. This is why, when I see these guys blowing into those “doodle sacks” sounding like cats fighting, I become very disgusted that so little respect is shown for our early American history.”
I’ve been reading the “Brighter Side/I Gotta Vent” page of the Penny Saver every week for as long as I can remember, because there is usually some pretty epic “Get off my lawn!” “Dey took err jahhbs!” whinery happening, but this person took it to a whole new level. I suppose if the worst thing you have to vent about is the fact that people aren’t paying their due respects to your colonial heritage, then your life must be pretty damn great overall.
