    " "Loose morals and easy virtue." Shouldnt it be "Easy morals and loose virtue'? Or, how about we just stay home and defend her 'Loose morals and easy virtues" over there? What is a chaddored GIRL holding hands with a stranger anyway? Why is a strange man so willing to protect her? We sometimes have loose women. That is because we have choices. You have to kiss about a hundred frogs before you find a prince. And, now we are almost all dead because of you and people like you from over there, and if we wanted to to that it's too late. It was too late several presidents ago with your slow poisonous invasion of OUR home. The home of the free and the brave. I am. Sincerely, I AM. "
