On the Event of His Death

I joined the Army two days after the 9/11 attacks. I joined the Army because our country had been attacked. I wanted to strike back at those who had killed some 3,000 of my fellow citizens. I did not join the Army to go to Iraq, a country that had no part in the September 2001 attacks and did not pose a threat to its neighbors, much less to the United States. I did not join the Army to “liberate” Iraqis or to shut down mythical weapons-of-mass-destruction facilities or to implant what you cynically called “democracy” in Baghdad and the Middle East. I did not join the Army to rebuild Iraq, which at the time you told us could be paid for by Iraq’s oil revenues.

About That Mission

Enhanced Recriminations

Here is the latest in my #timremix series. H/T to Eddie Grant for the lyrical inspiration.
Copy, share or forward to every crazy uncle who forwards you a Benghazi email or mentions Obama as the cause for Ebola. Gently remind them that we will never be able to convict Obama for injecting Ebola into Texas without a proper court of justice!.  Do it for the sake of our children. There’s always a possibility that they might yet get to live in the kind of free society most of us grew up in.  Let’s all pitch in and help “enhance” their chances.

We Don’t Torture, We Enhance

Conspiracy to Commit War Crimes

The battle wasn’t over when the “Mission was Accomplished”. There is still a hugely important mission that needs to be completed. Support the troops, and the rule of law they thought they were fighting for. Purge the war prostitutes and fill those seats with citizens who represent law and order as it was constitutionally enshrined. #finishthemission

Too Poor to Live

Great country we’ve got here.

I’m really sad this morning. It took our FUBARed health insurance system to finally push immense talent Vic Chesnutt over the cliff of despair this week. He needed kidney surgery and faced losing his home to pay for it. A songwriting hero to people like Kristin Hersh, Michael Stipe and Patti Smith, the Athens, Georgia performer took an overdose and spent his last few days in a coma.

Evidence of Bankster Evolution

Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) — “I just wrote my first reference for a gun permit,” said a friend, who told me of swearing to the good character of a Goldman Sachs Group Inc. banker who applied to the local police for a permit to buy a pistol. The banker had told this friend of mine that senior Goldman people have loaded up on firearms and are now equipped to defend themselves if there is a populist uprising against the bank.

They don’t call them the smartest guys in the room for nothing.
