Ignatius Piazza: The Rest of the National Anthem

June 13th, 2010  

In response to all the inquiries from Monday’s Blog, I am including another view of the video described below that has the lyrics included to this additional verse of our National Anthem.

Watch this video and if it does not cause you to have goose bumps and put an emotional lump in your throat, then don’t bother reading any further.

However, if you have the same reaction I did, then read my comments that follow the video and help me spread this message around the world-and enjoy the reward I have for you for doing so.

Here is the video…

Please make sure that JavaScript is enabled and you have the latest version of the Flash Player to see this video.

(iPhones and iPads can see the video here.)

I have watched this video over a dozen times, and every time I see it, I get the same reaction. I get goose bumps, a lump in my throat, and my eyes well up a bit.

I have asked myself, “Why is this so moving?” I think it is a combination of several factors:

A humble man, a Marine, stands up in front of a crowd of people he does not know and shares his heartfelt feelings of the importance of God and Country.

He then sings our National Anthem with such conviction, spirit, and beauty that the entire crowd is moved to spontaneously rise out of respect and love of the words he is singing.

Look at these people! These are simply common men and women like you and me. They are our neighbors, our friends, our family, our co-workers. They stand quietly and still, some with tears streaming down their faces, yet this simple, spontaneous moment of love for God and Country is thunderous in it’s message!

These people are patriots, like you and me, who still hold sacred, the words and principles of our Founding Fathers.

And there are MILLIONS of us in every town and city across this country who feel the same way, but will never see this video UNLESS YOU HELP ME SEND IT TO THEM.

We need to get this video distributed into every home of every patriot in America so they too will understand that they are not alone in their feelings and beliefs. There are MILLIONS of us who feel the same way and should the time ever come where we must unite in spirit and cause, we will do so.

So all you have to do to help spread this message so people like us can feel acknowledge and appreciated is to forward this blog to all of your like minded family and friends and ask them to do the same!

It is simple and it will work.

And if you do your part by simply forwarding my blog to everyone you know and posting it on all of your forums and chat rooms, I will do my part by rewarding you with your own “Don’t Tread on Me” Lifetime Membership!

To be fair to those who participated in the Don’t Tread on Me Campaign, I cannot offer it for $419 or $499, but as I am sure you will agree, what I am offering is an absolute steal for a lifetime of training.

I WANT YOU and THE PEOPLE IN THE VIDEO and EVERY PERSON LIKE THEM across our great country to be an ARMED and TRAINED PATRIOTS so I am dedicating my money and time to make it happen.

All you have to do is forward this to everyone you know and take advantage of your reward!

Let’s make an impact on this country by uniting all patriots in spirit and arms!

So here you go…

Let’s put this “Don’t Tread on Me” campaign into it’s true, long term perspective…

Please understand that unless those who utter such strong words have the ability to back them up with force, the slogan “Don’t Tread on Me” becomes nothing more than a humorous notion to politicians who continually fail to recognize they are supposed to serve us–not the other way around.

Just as a rattle snake is feared and respected ONLY because of it’s fangs and venom, the Second Amendment commands respect from those who would otherwise steal our freedom and liberty ONLY because responsible citizens are ARMED–and more importantly, TRAINED to levels that exceed law enforcement and military standards.

My BIG REWARD to you is the opportunity to secure a lifetime of training to levels that exceed law enforcement and military standards, without any boot camp mentality or drill instructor attitudes.

I want to give you fangs and venom so you are always respected and never tread upon by anyone!

Here is what I mean…

I have created the Front Sight, “Don’t Tread on Me” Lifetime Membership.

I chose to include our most popular handgun courses and rifle courses.

Why handgun and rifle courses?

Because with our handgun training, you will be confident to carry a handgun with you at all times and have the expert skills to control your immediate environment against any threats.

With our rifle training, you gain the additional ability to control your environment at distances as far out as you can identify threats. Such skill strikes fear in the hearts of those who would ever consider imposing their will against the people.

With Front Sight’s handgun and rifle training, you sharpen the teeth of the Second Amendment and insure that nobody will ever consider treading on YOU.

Here is what you get with Front Sight’s “Don’t Tread on Me” Lifetime Membership…

  • Attend the following courses Free of Charge and As Many Times As You Wish for the Rest of Your Life:

    With a Front Sight “Don’t Tread on Me” Lifetime Membership you have the opportunity to obtain the Comfort of Skill at Arms with a handgun and rifle that most people could spend and entire career in the military or law enforcement and still not receive.

    As those who attend our courses know, this is not marketing hype.

    There is a good reason why Marine Corps officers, and law enforcement firearms instructors become members at Front Sight… It’s because we can provide them with more consistent and expert firearms training than they get from their own agencies.

    And when you become a Front Sight “Don’t Tread on Me” Lifetime Member you will get to train right along side our nation’s finest peacekeepers and warriors–men and women who DO understand the meaning of the Constitution–helping build a lifelong bond between the responsible armed citizens who are the backbone of our country’s defense and the brave men and women who place themselves in harms way on a daily basis to protect and serve our nation.

  • Guaranteed Placement in Your Courses with Two Weeks Advanced Enrollment… No worries about whether your can “get into a course.” As a member your spot is guaranteed. Just fax or e-mail your Application for Training within two weeks of the course date and you are in! Like everything else we offer, no other school can offer you such flexibility with your scheduling!
  • Invitation to Annual July 4th Lifetime Members’ Reunion Celebration… So you and your family can celebrate July 4th each year in a manner that makes our Founding Fathers proud!
  • Name etched in First Family Monument… So generations from now, your grandkids will know you were part of the patriotic group who built Front Sight!
  • Password to access exclusive and restricted First Family areas of web site and e-mail forum… Now you can positively converse with all of our like minded First Family members!
  • First Family Card and First Family Hat… Identifying you to all students and staff as a loyal and supportive patriot assisting us in positively changing the image of gun ownership in our lifetime!

What’s the Value of Front Sight’s “Don’t Tread on Me” Lifetime Membership?

The more you use your “Don’t Tread on Me” Lifetime Membership, the more value it has. If you just attended each course ONCE the value would be $6,000, but I know you won’t just take each course once.

Why do I know this? Because after your first course, I know you will be absolutely blown away by how much you learned, how much fun you had, and how much you realize there is to master in the proper and professional use of the defensive handgun, that you will want to return to attend the Two Day Defensive Handgun, Four Day Defensive Handgun, Two Day Practical Rifle and Four Day Practical Rifle course with all your different handguns and rifles for the rest of your life.

The Lifetime Value of Your “Don’t Tread on Me” Lifetime Membership exceeds $40,000 or More!

So What’s it Going to Cost?

Choose ONE Payment Plan:

____ 12 monthly credit card payments of $99 for a total cost of $1188


____ Single payment of $999 (You Save $189.)

A Single Payment of ONLY $999.00

I’m not joking, just $999.

I will spell it out so you understand it is not a misprint: Nine Hundred Ninety Nine Dollars!

That’s Right! Just $999. I’m giving it away to THANK YOU for spreading this blog around the country.

As you can see I was not just talking. I’m putting my money behind you, to train you, and to strengthen our country.
