Since when has joining the military made someone a man? The only thing I will learn in Iraq is to hate Iraqi's and challenge all of George Bush's train of thought. What will this teach my about immigration? I read the news paper every day and am well aware of whats happening around me. It is up to me to create my own opinion and I suggest you respect it.

Who said that?

However, since you brought it up...if I was your teacher I'd flunk you for not being able to punctuate properly and for not knowing the difference between "your" and "you're". You should know this at your age.

I'm not one of them. If you're going to act so lofty and arrogant, it would behoove you to improve your English.

Nothing wrong with my English. The fact that I mispunctuated on accident doesn't mean you have to be my English teacher.

I know the freaking difference

You're: you are
Your: possession

I also type pretty fast averaging about 80 WPM at 96% accuracy

I type a lot faster than that and I still have better English than you do.

I wouldn't want to be your English teacher; I'd go broke buying red pens.
