Bill, I was at a ranch for ten days, and only now had time to read your link:
America won't win another war until the 1960s flower children are pushing up petunias.
It's no wonder we get into these pissing contests...I had no conception of the right-wing garbage out there in repugland...garbage which obviously fills your mind.
Aside from the old saw nonsense slamming Hippies...of which, as a thinking person ready to take responsibility for those heinous criminal acts "my" government commits in my name, (such as the escallating war on Chavez...this hemisphere's last and most vibrant democracy.), I count myself
a proud member; the thrust of this artical is to whine about not being able to attack third-world soverign nations and their populations, without criticism.
You guys want applause for the efforts you expend in becoming proficient killers.
Protecting the homeland.
That has a familiar ring to it.
Pre-emptive strikes against our ambivilant enemies...just to give them direction for their misdirected anger at having their homes implode on their wives and children.
What's to criticize? I mean what sort of pinko, commie, faggot bastard, would object to protecting our wives and daughters from the onslaught of those towel-headed rapists overrunning our borders?
On another note: I just spent some time going through synomyns for hippies, and was shocked by the names for hippies listed in about four compilations.
Names characterizing personality types having nothing to do with the Flower Child.
The list gave the impression that flowerpower was political...and granted there were many like SNICK who were...but they had nothing to do with hippies, except by misguided newspapers who used the term interchangably.
Judging from the outside aolways produces a differet picture form that of those living it.
There was less than nothing political in the flowerchild's credo...we shitcaned every institution existant...all we wanted was to be left alone to "do our own thing".
Not so sayth the thesaurus...so I guess I can't be overly critical of your point of view...as you obviously have no first hand experience of hippie life or credo...(and would most probably misinterpret what you saw, if you did.)
I guess the best I can do in your case (and you are a case study in cult behavior...aka...the military mind, is to remind you to judge your own actions by what is considered xtian credo, and stop pushing off your responsibily for your acts upon some canned government brainwashings...like "fuck for chastity" or "kill for peace"...take your own actions and those whom you support, as your own personal responsibility.
If that last was too convoluted for you to make sense of, then an easir version would look like this:
Killing = killing, and putting lipstick on that pig, doesn't allow the dead guy to go home to his family.
If you pulled the trigger, then that = you pulled the trigger = the dead guy doesn't go home to his family.
kill for jesus...kill for butchco...kill for oil...kill for kicks...kill for peace...all = the dead guy doesn't go home to his kids...and you pulled the trigger (or induced some teenager to do it for you)
As Blowtorch noted...blaming hippies really boldly delineates how lame your position feels to you, yourself, blaming liberals (another bullshit label for those people who experience a sense of humanity) for the military's failure to kill enough "bigmouths" fast enough.
What a sick world you guys have made for the rest of us.
Have you any notion the amount of work and money we have to expend cleaning up the mess of our country and the world you sick people with your gunship diplomacy have wrought upon us all?
I guess not...otherwise you would keep your mouth shut in shame, making only those noises that tend to pass yourself off as civilized.
