The following letter, written by U.S. Marine Joshua Boston and headlined No maam., was posted in the CNN iReport on Dec. 27 with the included note from the producer and photo. It has struck a nerve with many and is being circulated around social media venues like Twitter and Facebook.
Senator Dianne Feinstein,
I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the governments right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You maam have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.
I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.
I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.
We, the people, deserve better than you.
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
Does that even apply to John Murtha?
“The letter is well put ! I am sure when she sees it, I am sure some form of reprisal will go to this former Marines direction.”
I hope he has employed a VERY ethical and competent tax preparer for the past, oh, seven years, capisce?;)
Sorry, bad as liberal females are, I’ve ZERO sympathy for those who would stop conservative women from voting while allowing every left wing looney male the right to vote. So I go to vote and get turned away, while Michael Moore, Harry Belafonte and the like can walk right in.
If that happens, you can bet Americans will rally around him. This is what we need to have happen, actually.. For starters, a fund set up for him via website would take care of all his financial needs for life, and then some.. If he gets ‘cut off’ by the gov’t, a website fund in his name will more than compensate for any benefits due to him.
The gun grabbers wanting to grab your guns, My FRiend, has nothing to do with crime control. It has everything to do with wanting to control and enslave you.
Chill woman. Unfortunately a chip on your shoulder prevents you from enjoying a powerful letter written to end abuse.
All command authority flows from the CIC. As far as serving the Constitution, check Article II.

Watch him get sanctioned by the brass for making a political statement under the auspices of his position as a serviceman. Feinstein and all the little Obamatons will quietly demand it.
I stand by every word.
I've got to say that he sounds like he disrespects a woman who is a total hypocrite and also a man who is totally bad. I don't think it's the same thing you experienced.
Clinton was Constitutionally elected, Obama was not.
“My rights and liberties were given by God, not by some teenaged mercenary in the Usurper’s army. “
Please define mercenary wrto this discussion.
Ditto for Ursurper’s army.
Thanks, that may clarify things.
I don’t feel that his contempt is directed toward all women,just to the one he wrote the letter to.We must all be careful that our life experience doesn’t taint our judgement.
Dear Senator Feinstein:
If you plan to register and or confiscate guns, I recommend you begin in the urban centers of America.
Really? How did they do in the last presidential election?
If you choose to use this letter’s content addressed to any and all liberal leaning federal representatives, may I suggest that you hand write the letter and send it via the USPS. I’m told that congressional offices estimate that one handwritten letter represents the position of 1500 constituents. eMail letters are counted for far fewer constituents.
This construct may have changed over time, so if anyone had more current information, please correct me accordingly...
Guessing no less than a million Americans share your sentiments.
Semper Fi at its utmost best.
Thank you Joshua Boston, I am truly honored to know that you served to keep us free!
Run this guy for office.
it sounds like he is not a coward like all the rest of the GOP there
No disrespect intended, ma’am, but...
There’s more important things going on here at the moment then “attitude towards women”.
I pretty much feel the same way as he does re Di Fi... she’s about two steps above Moron, and she’s trying to make law that blatantly oversteps her boundaries - law established in the Constitution that intelligent men - MORE intelligent and wise than she’ll EVER be - created.
As a matter of fact, they created the Second Amendment BECAUSE of the moronic mentality of people like her, and Babs Boxer, and Hillary, and that idiot woman rep from NY, McCarthy.
So, like I said, no offense, but he’s right on the money.
It is true that Clinton was a traitor who was Constitutionally elected and that Obama was not Constitutionally elected. But you ignored the majority of my post.
If all the decent, Constitution respecting patriots left the military, Obama could recruit his own force of amoral or immoral mercs and set them loose on us. He's already recruited some of them and some are in training. I think the decent, patriotic soldiers in our armed forces act as, at the very least, a brake on Obama's ability to pull out all the stops.
Regardless, no one is perfect, not even the hero who steps forward while those crouched in fear often find fault with his actions.
Perhaps your husband did act inappropriately, but one has to ask, who, why, and what, was the instigation. I bet he has a different take on the story.
God bless this brave Marine.
Obama won't care. A couple million letters would just cause him to stiffen his resolve and double down. It's his M.O.
The harder he pushes, the faster the GOP caves. The more the GOP caves, the harder Obama pushes.
This isn’t about you.
Feinsteins act is criminal. I would see 10 criminals set free if she could get the sentence she richly deserves for violating our rights as free people.
Street crime is not why we need our guns. Our guns are to protect us from violators of our natural, God given rights, and Feinstein is the enemy in violation. Abusive politicians simply demand all power over our property, rights and weapons.
Good to hear from you my friend...I hope is all well by you and yours...
RE resounding No: People that I KNOW who have never even thought of buying guns have now done so - and they bought ARs. Regardless of the wisdom of that, folks know things aren’t right, and they’re responding to it the way they know how - with their wallets.
As for “assault rifles” last time I checked Webster’s Dictionary, “assault” was a verb. Must be a noun in the NEW Ebonics version or something, I dunno...
When Hitler assumed power in Germany, one of the things he did was have the military re-swear their oaths to (in order): (1) Adolf Hitler himself, (2) Germany, and (3) German people. This completely changes the equation when those holding access to deadly force are sworn to do it for Dear Leader and not, as in America's case, its Constitution.
If this should ever happen, Obama has declared open war on America and its people.
We the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, with so little, for so long, weare now qualified to do anything, with nothing.
#1 We don't serve anybody but We the People. Luckily for the other 312 million Americans we don't give a rat's ass about your "respect." The oath is to the Constitution of the United States, not to POTUS.
A few short years ago I could run faster than a 6 min mile and could hike with 120lbs of gear on my back. Now, after four combat tours I have shrapnel in my chest, a broken vertebrae, several bulged discs, severe degeneration, arthritis, bad hips, bad knees, and bad ankles and a blown shoulder; I struggle to do basic things like walk through a grocery store, or up the stairs in my house - standing to make dinner or do the dishes is a chore. Even getting down to hug my children causes intense pain.
But for the Grace of God go I and I count myself fortunate and Blessed, as many of the other young men I knew and served with didn't make it back - as a grown man I now cry every time I hear "Taps" or "amazing Grace" on the bagpipes.
When they do the POW/MIA-KIA ceremony it isn't just nice words spoken and a pretty poem. They revere and hold high our fallen; my friends. I remember their laughter. I remember the goodness of their heart. I remember their camaraderie. Their triumphs and their passing. I know what it is like to be washed in my buddies' blood - to see them put their fellow Marine above their own lives. "Respect?" You know not the meaning of the word.
We didn't volunteer because of any man or any President. Our job, our duty, our commitment to the American people does not end because of who is elected. We do it for the principles this country was founded on; we do it for our families and for millions that will never truly know the price or sweetness of freedom, but they may have it just the same. I say to you if we don't tow the line, who will?
You can take your idea of "respect" and stick it where the sun don't shine and kiss my white ass.
Now that you mention it...The Cotswolds are a location I’ve heard of often.
To protect and defend it.....
And yet our 'finest' seem to have no problem saluting the Usurper. Way to go, trooper.
That first photo fits the definition well.
1. an elevated tract of open country. 2. Often, wolds. an open, hilly district, especially in England
United States Marines are not mercenaries, you pathetic piece of trash. They are some of the best we have to offer, and they willingly lay their lives on the altar of freedom. Have you ever raised your right hand and made that commitment, or do you just talk big?
Do you really think, in the recesses of your dark little brain, that the Marine who wrote this letter voted for Barack Obama? Are you that dense? Or are you even more dense than that and think a guy who is on your side politically and is willing to die to preserve the Constitution of this nation somehow deserves your derision because some batch of idiots voted Obama in?
You are correct that your rights come from God, but His name should not be on your lips while you spew such dishonorable filth.
Given what Sal has pointed out, it would be best if you withdraw a wrong characterization of the Corporal.
Thank you so much for going. I regret that you have had to suffer but I’m so, so grateful that you and so many others are willing to.
I’ve started it in my loop.
They don’t have the cajones to do anything to him. They know how many of us are siding with him.
The men of our armed forces swear allegiance to the Constitution, not any person or party.
Dishonor is for those that did not uphold their sworn oath.
And yet our 'finest' seem to have no problem saluting the Usurper. Way to go, trooper.
Well, when you announce in the media tomorrow that you are raising and leading a militia for the purpose of overthrowing the current federal government because the Marines are too unpatriotic to do so, that should make quite a splash in the media. I look forward to seeing it.
Because you are going to do that, right? You couldn't possibly be the sort of pathetic, cowardly, bloviating, self-righteous weasel who would lecture a wounded combat vet about duty and be unwilling to do the job yourself, right?
All that says is he is CINC. The oath of allegiance states clearly servicemen support and defend the Constitution of the US. They do not swear allegiance to a CINC, a person, but swear allegiance to an idea. . .the Constitution—hence they are not serving a person (The Messiah).
