Do you support the idea that plasticized yellow strips tied around trees and poles are really boosting the morale of our troops and families?
The fact that "Tie A Yellow Ribbon..." launched the careers of Tony Orlando and Dawn, and secured them a variety show to bother America every week is why the yellow ribbon should be despised, BUTgkmo62u said:No, Tony Orlando and Dawn (there were two "Dawn's" remember?) invented the yellow ribbon. You were to ties it around the oak tree if you still loved me....
Bottom line: my neighbor has a kid in Bagdad, he has a yellow ribbon on his mailbox. That's good enough for me.
Hmmm, sure you don't work in the retail industry?bet on me said:I get kinda cynical when it comes to the ribbons and the flag thing. It seems like if these people were really patriots, they'd take care of them and make sure they stay nice. Even the bumper stickers on the cars of the American Flag are fading and I don't see that as true patriotism- I see that as a fad that got left behind. I get more impression of support ande dedication when the flag or the yellow ribbon is kept nice, clean and unfrayed.
