Thread Name: BS: Modest Proposal to end the civil war
Subject: RE: BS: Modest Proposal to end the civil war
For a free and democratic people, US citizens sure as shit seem to need more guns and tanks and nukes and subs and air force bombers than anybody else ever had over all the whole of human history. Yet, the war mongerers and war profiteers keep telling us we aren't safe for some reason.

Why do you suppose that is, musicmic?

We got more guns, ammo, nukes, lawyers, Hollywood propaganda producers, talking head showboats, and special interests than any other nation, or probably every nation combined on this good earth, with which to gainfully pursue our soldier massacreeing, jealous murdering, dispossessed suiciding, surreptitious wife beating, and accidental shooting galleries of children we call "school" than any other country, civilized or not.

Why do you suppose that is, musicmic?

It seems that American freedom and patriotism are a tad more elusive in the good old US of A than you are letting on there, musicmic.

I wonder why that is, too. But I'll grant you this--it didn't just start to happen under George W. Bush or even George H.W. Bush.

Just ask the Nicaraguans, the Filippinos, the Vietnamese, the Native Americans of both North and South America, the Iraqis, the Afghanis, the Grenadans, Panamanians, Salvadorans, Haitians, Cubans...

And those are just a few of the lucky nations that have felt the bottom of our soldiers' boots and looked down the barrels of our let freedom ring up on our cash register rifles...
