The War on talkin’ about War…oh, and women

On Memorial Day, as I learned from one of Bill O’Reilly’s “for kids” books, there is something that occurs but once a year (ok, twice).  GI Joe comes from the D.E.W. Line in his magical tank and bestows gifts upon military veterans for their service (“hope you weren’t counting on the ‘Dream Act’ but here’s the gift of PTSD José“).  Hey, it’s right there on page 1, 29, or 187, look it up.

But then, just like Christmas,  liberal grinchulist workers party member Chris Hayes had to ruin it by distinguishing veterans from the wars they were required to fight. How dare you question the expansion of Arlington Cemetery, sir — have you a normal amount of shame?!

All our soldiers are heroes…until they are not Republican enough — or do not perform to Ann Coulter’s satisfaction. Same thing.

It’s quite simple really.

But now that we’ve knocked shouted that issue down that we can get back to statements about our soldiers that are not to be criticized.

Fox’s Ablow: Women Wanting To Serve In Combat Is “Narcissism” And Allowing It Would “Shoot Holes In Our Culture”

I hope we all can be properly contrite and move on from this.

Hero, War Criminal, What's the Difference? It's a Job!



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
