The U.S. military needs to score a real victory now

That way the swamp-crickets of America can run around assuring everyone that Obama didn’t engineer it, the troops did, courtesy of the previous president’s legacy of savvy foreign policy.

This is one aspect of rednecks I hadn’t considered until I thought about getting hammered and writing a post like this. It’s no secret that they’re steeped in Jesus juice, extremely fond of the idea of war, staunch Obama haters, and inordinately proud to be part of the same “greatest nation on Earth” that they routinely complain about, keenly unaware that the kielbasa-choked guts protruding from beneath their Dale Earnhardt Jr. T-shirts are not places in which people with viable opinions localize their most aggressive thought processes.

What’s below comes from the online “activity wall” of someone who claims to have attended “Worked My Ass Off University” and offers an example of the things people are eager to say when they are sure that they are in an echo chamber, but would never discuss with someone who disagreed with them on any point and possessed the slightest degree of rhetorical skills. Since I have an ersatz buzz on, I’ll go ahead and say that this person is Exhibit A for why it’s advantageous to have a normal human karyotype before proceeding with the whole reproduction thing.

Let’s be clear on this: OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden. An American soldier, who Obama just a few weeks ago was debating on whether or not to PAY, did. Obama just happened to be the one in office when our soldiers finally found OBL and took him out. This is NOT an Obama victory, but an AMERICAN victory!!

Everyone post this flag in support of our Troops hard work and efforts to catch Bin Laden.

If those boys over there want a fight, we’ll have to wait until they come out from behind their abused and mistreated women to oblige them.

Upon hearing the news about OBL, Donald Trump wanted to see the death certificate!! He might be a nut, but at least you know what he stands for!!

I was raised to say Please & Thank you, to learn from my mistakes, to accept people’s apologies, to have respect for my elders, to lend a helping hand to those who were in need, hold the door for the person behind me, say excuse me when it was needed, and to Love people for who they are, not for what you can get from them! If you were raised this way too, re-post this if you agree.

Greatest man in History, named Jesus, had no servants, yet they called Him Master. Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was… buried in a tomb…, yet He lives today. Re-post if you believe this in your heart! ♥ ♥

What’a striking about these rednecks is that they actually believe in their own veneer of respectful regard for human beings. They can go at all day about humility and unconditional love, but present them with someone who isn’t keen on war or the GOP or mythical rabble-rousers and see how tolerant they are.

I don’t pretend to have “respect” for idiots like this. That I willingly embrace a society in which people can express even the most mind-bogglingly stupid conspiracy theories and be as credulous as dementia patients doesn’t mean I like what they say. If I were drunk I wouldn’t pretend that I’d love to see them all start exercising, reading more books, and having kids if that’s what they want. I’d write that it would be more convenient for me personally if they would all gorge themselves into early graves before they could even consider the idea of breeding and shut their fucking mouths. I’d add that the same louts and hillbillies yelling the loudest about how the fix a broken America have no idea that they’re the main reason the country’s intellectual and ethical character is a sick joke.

I think that the mean reason morons of this type are able to maintain their delusions in the face of contravening evidence isn’t that they reject the evidence. It’s that it’s facile to dismiss everyone who, say, agrees with Obama on some points or believes that the war in Iraq is a colossal, avaricious boondoggle as sympathizers of Islam or puppets of the liberal media they’ve never watched, and that the evidence is manufactured. They believe that things like taxes really are, say, a plot to defraud them of their food stamps. For some, it’s easier to feel hated than ignored, and bellow things with the power of Angry and all the sophistication of a methed-up Mad Cow disease victim.

Someone told Bluto Blutarsky in Animal House that fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life. Had the screenwriter added “religious” and waited thirty years, he might have been amazed at just how many people do in fact go through life in this condition, and proudly so.

    Yes, well, some people do wear their ignorance as a badge of honor. “I got this far without no schoolin’ an’ I’m still alive so I mus be purty smart. All you got is book learnin’ but I got my education in the real world.”
