Exactly what I'm talking about. You sit home instead of changing it from within. Cowardly, and diversionary, rhetoric to the contrary does not change the fact that citizen soldiers from all economic strata would do a better job of running the military for the benefit of the people instead of the government.
The people responsible for an abusive military structure are the ones who sit at home and choose not to serve. One generation of responsible people performing military service is all it would take to change the entire system.
How about a few tens of thousands of artists, philosophers, writers, dancers, and others with liberal arts educations choosing to enter and serve in the military instead of waiting on tables and pissing their lives away on pipe dreams of stardom?
You want to see a difference? Make a difference. You are the only one holding back change.
People like Clay will never have the balls to risk their own lives for the greater good. They don't have to worry about being abandoned for the sake of political gain.
I remember the day I came in from the garden and found a tick on my skin. That's pretty much the way I feel every time I see one of this guy's cartoons.
I wonder if drugs were legal, gay marriage was universal, welfare was available for anyone who doesn't want to work, health care was universal, and people like Clay could go around doing exactly what they want to do without worrying how it affects others, if even THEN he would be happy.
The IRS acted as a political wing of the Democratic Party. The only thing this cartoon doesn't make clear is whether Clay is celebrating it, or mourning it. I guess the use of an old white guy who looks like Dick Cheney must be the key. If this cartoon was accurate, the people doing the treading would look very different.
Hey, does anybody else remember John Kerry spouting off over and over about how Bush had no plan on how to get out of Iraq? He obviously had the same plan as the Obama administration: leave them there to die. Hitler did exactly the same thing with tens of thousands of his troops in Russia and France.
Oh, okay. I get it. Clay posted this to avoid a cartoon about Benghazi.
If there was no incompetence in the handling of Benghazi, according to the administration, then we must also write off the 911 attacks to pilot error.
This is the result of the permissive society that liberals want for us. Don't you dare complain about something when you have done everything possible to make it happen.
. . . and how come the figure on the trophy is not covered with tattoos and wearing long, sloppy clothes? This one seems way out of date.
Have you ever noticed how it seems we were created with all these human weaknesses, and then were told not to do all that stuff we were created with the desire to do? One of the most terrible forms of child abuse is to set up a goal for your children which they cannot accomplish, and then to punish them terribly when they fail.
Hint. Hint. Think about it. It will come to you.
You may be right, according to scripture. Doesn't it say in there somewhere that not everyone will be saved? You know, that part about, "I never knew you."
Is that the Holy Spirit speaking through you, or maybe someone else? Might want to do a gut check on it.
It's not my job to condemn people to Hell. It's my job to reveal the love of Christ to them, and then it's up to them to do the rest.
Jesus loved the sinners, and he died for them. It was the Pharisees (hit-men of the Hebrew faith, who enforced the laws set down by God) who put Jesus to death for working (healing people) on the Sabbath. Do you really feel called to be one of those who condemn people by so turning them away from Christ that they never have a chance to know Him? How many lost souls will be on your head for placing a stumbling block before them?
I'm just sayin . . . .
