Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Veterans Day Sadface : ( Edition

Oh, that's ... nice?
From the tweetosphere today, this puzzling image of Sheriff Joe serving cake to those who are serving time in one of his Monuments to Shame. Our only question: Is the cake made of half-spoiled bologna? Read more on Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Veterans Day Sadface : ( Edition…
  Firing Blanks In The Culture War

America-Hating Libs Murder Veterans Day Because They Fear Guns. Or Not.

Why not just let the kids know what WW I was really about?
Thank heavens we’ve got a good Culture War overlay for your Veterans/Armistice/Remembrance Day, America. According to a number of rightwing websites, the gun-hating (and hence Freedom-hating) liberals in charge of the Eau Claire, Wisconsin, School District have completely cancelled Veterans Day programs, denying children of a chance to learn about what makes their country great.

Fine Here Is Your Bloody Kurt Vonnegut, Armistice Day 2014 Edition

I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and don't let anybody tell you different.
When Nov. 11 rolls around, this quote from Breakfast of Champions gets dragged out of storage and put on display for the occasion of Kurt Vonnegut’s birthday and Armistice/Veterans Day. But that’s what remembrance and ceremony are for, after all, as mile markers on our half-blind flatcar ride through time. So it goes. And since it remains an awesome quote, and since Vonnegut never feared flirting with cliché (who are we kidding? He dived right in and consummated the relationship), neither will we. Let’s have another nice rummage through the mental attic with Uncle Kurt: Read more on Fine Here Is Your Bloody Kurt Vonnegut, Armistice Day 2014 Edition…

Wingnut Wants Homeless Veterans To Stop Being Low-Lifes Milking Sympathy, Be Upstanding Like Him

Happy Veterans Day / Armistice Day / Kurt Vonnegut’s birthday! Perhaps you have the day off of your “work,” and are using your free time to trawl your Wonkette. (Don’t forget to trawl HappyNiceTimePeople while you’re at it, now with fewer computer STD’s!) Perhaps you never have “work” at all, because of how you are a loser vet who believed the LIEBERAL LIE that you could come home with PTSD and just stone cold put your hand out and be a grifter and not work hard like all the good vets do! Good vets like one Kurt Schlichter, who in the eternal quest for some juicy pageviews has sexplained that … well let us let Kurt Schlichter do his own yakking. Let’s be clear – being a veteran is not a “Get out of work free” card that excuses you from the basic responsibility of supporting yourself and your family. If I pass a bum with a sign reading “Homeless Vet,” I don’t feel an overpowering surge of solidarity. I feel disgusted that another low-life is trying to milk sympathy off a proud status that millions of us earned with our blood and sweat and years of our lives. Oh, he seems nice. And also #caring. (And also maybe not so good at following his own thoughts logically from beginning to end, but what do you want the man to do? He’s got a word count, and mouths to feed!)

It’s Not A Rerun, It’s A Tradition: Fine Here Is Your Bloody Kurt Vonnegut

When November 11 rolls around, this quote from Breakfast of Champions gets dragged out of storage and put on display for the occasion of Kurt Vonnegut’s birthday and Armistice/Veterans’ Day. God knows we’ve done it ourselves, too. But that’s what remembrance and ceremony are for, after all, as mile markers on our half-blind flatcar ride through time. And since it remains an awesome quote, and since Vonnegut never feared flirting with cliché, neither will we.

Fine Here Is Your Bloody Kurt Vonnegut

When November 11 rolls around, it’s pretty common to see this Kurt Vonnegut quote about the date trotted out, and god knows we’ve done it ourselves a few times in the past ourselves. But it’s an awesome quote anyway, and since Vonnegut was never afraid of flirting with cliché, neither will we.

The Google Desecrates Beloved U.S. Flag With Muslin Crescent Moon

That’s odd. I clicked on the Google button on the AOL and it came up with a new picture. Why would they stick an American flag… OH NO. THEY DID IT SO THEY COULD STICK A CRESCENT MOON IN THERE. The Google has been taken over by Sharia law! AND ON VETERANS DAY! This is a conversation every American is having with himself on the Internet today. Isn’t it just terrible how these Muslims are taking over every aspect of our lives? Go back to the terrorism, please. We liked it when you just did the terrorism. And Google: SHAME ON YOU. WE TRUSTED YOU WITH OUR WEIRD PORN FETISHES. Read more on The Google Desecrates Beloved U.S. Flag With Muslin Crescent Moon…
 

History Is Written By the Mission Accomplishers

In a Veteran’s Day speech today, Bush came out with the administration’s official policy on criticizing the war in Iraq: “While it’s perfectly legitimate to criticize my decision or the conduct of the war, it is deeply irresponsible to rewrite the history of how that war began.” Because, he continued, “That’s our job.” Read more on History Is Written By the Mission Accomplishers…
 

Marine Finds “The Sun’ll Come Out Tomorrow”

It’s true, most of us honor Veteran’s Day with a fantastic white sale. We salute the Marine in today’s Washington Post who’s celebrating his return to civilian life with show tunes. Shouldn’t he have been in the Navy? Kidding. Patrick Young, a Maryland native and Iraq veteran, had a tough tour — he lost his best friend and came home unsure what to do with his life — no wonder he has found solace in “The Sound of Music.” But don’t go thinking he’s that way. Back in the suck, one thought about his stateside home kept him going: Read more on Marine Finds “The Sun’ll Come Out Tomorrow”…
