the pussification of America

We need to get rid of "The Star Spangled Banner" as our national anthem. First, the tune was ripped off from and old English drinking song and I think you have to be drunk to sing it. (It's a nut-buster--- especially the high notes.) Because the song is so difficult to sing, we get performances such as the cringe-worthy rendition we heard at this year's Super Bowl. Gawd! That was enough to make me want to hear it in Spanish.

Second, the song is about a battle and everybody knows that war is bad--- very, very bad for children and other living things. Plus, it's a chickenhawk song, full of bloodthirsty stuff like "rocket's red glare" and "bombs bursting in air," written by a guy who wasn't in the fight. He's got his nerve to write or even SAY anything about war. Only real combat veterans, such as John Kerry, have the right to speak of war. Everybody knows THAT.

Naw, the song lacks compassion and sensitivity, and Bejus knows--- that just won't do today.

It is as if we've become sophisticated beyond our intelligence, savvy beyond wisdom. Some might say we are showing a great and careful generosity, as befits a great nation. But maybe we're just, or also, rolling in our high-mindedness like a puppy in the grass. Maybe we are losing some crude old grit. Maybe it's not good we lose it.

What a beautiful line: "...rolling in our high-mindedness like a puppy in the grass." What a perfect description of the empty-headedness that passes for deep thought today. It captures the "enlightenment" of political-correctness in a nutshell.

Yeah, in a heart-warming display of compassion, the jury gave Zacarias Moussaoui life in prison instead of the death penalty. Why?

Rosemary Dillard, whose husband Eddie died in the attacks, said of Moussaoui: "He's a bad man, but we have a fair society." She said of terrorists: "We will treat them with respect no matter what they do to us."

WTF??? We're gonna treat terrorists with "respect no matter what they do to us?" Excuse me while I puke all over my keyboard.

I'm an Old School, vengeful kinda guy. I look at a smirking cumstain such as Moussaoui and I think about all the people who died on 9/11 and I don't feel any "respect" at all for the man. In fact, I hate the bastard. I see blood on his hands. I would LIKE to see him stripped nekkid, smeared with bacon grease and staked out on a large fire ant mound under a blazing southeast Georgia sun.

But my idea is too... icky. Ewwwwww...

I think that this verdict is a perfect example of what this guy calls "The Pussification of America." We've been gelded.

I'm not sure this is progress. It feels not like the higher compassion but the lower evasion. It feels dainty in a way that speaks not of gentleness but fear.

I don't think it's progress, either. We'll never win a war against murderous scumbags such as Moussaoui if we lack the balls to fight it down and dirty, the way THEY play. Moussaoui ain't no child, this ain't no game, and our soccer-mom mentality ain't gonna impress him. After all, he DID clap his hands and say, "America, you lost," when the verdict was announced.

Of course, we could NEVER stake such a man to a fire ant mound. We would have pussies everywhere screaming about how we've gotta show some "respect" for fire ants, too.

Change the national anthem to a more appropriate song, something that reflects the true character of our nation today. I suggest "Feelings," by Barry Manilow.


"Feelings" was by ... Hmm. Memory fails. Not Barely Manenough though.

For a second or two I was afraid you were
serious,and thank God I continued to read

I honestly don't know how I would punish him

BUT it would be somewhat akin to a VC interigator trying to get info out of our finest

He must suffer for all those many that hurt because of 9/11.

I hope the SOB gets sent to a prison full of 250lb black gay guys with huge dicks. I hope that they cover his cell with photo's of Hilliary Clinton nude. My final wish is that he eat nothing but pork the rest of his life and the only toilet paper he has is the koran.

I have really mixed feelings. Mind you, I want the Moose-limb bastard dead, dead, dead.

But he really seems to crave "martydom." I'm not sure that it's a better punishment to deny it to him, and let him instead grow old watching us push islamofascism back into the third-world pest-hole it came from. He's already gotten to watch us make his organization an impotent also-ran in the Islamic Jihad biz. That's got to suck for him.

On the other hand, I want him dead.

"Lord, thank you for letting me die at the hands of my enemy."

Fuck him. Let him rot with his Qua'ran and prayer rug until he dies of old age.

Life is worse than death for Moussaoui. Especially with a clap-infested black dick up his ass.

Let justice be done.

If there was a lottery as to who could throw the switch on this SOB, I'd put my name in the hat. I may come across as quiet and demure, but I'm not. I'm a vengeful bitch and I'd have NO PROBLEMS ending the life of that bastard. (I got my blog handle from those who know me well...)

No kidding.

I wholeheartedly agree. We have become too passive in our great country of diversity, tolerance, and respect. Lamont might be right about the marytrdom, but that's not really the point. I believe in one God, and I think it's safe to assume He will be sending that man straight to hell.

Better that the asshole to be a short term martyr after a bullet in the head than a long term excuse for the raving loonies of the RoP to start kidnapping, beheading and setting fire to embassies in an effort to get him released.

No, "America, Fuck Yeah!" is the new anthem. I heard a story that soldiers were blasting this through their humvees while driving around Baghdad and its suburbs, and the local population was cheering it. I know it's probably just a story, but it makes me very happy to think that it might be true.

America, Fuck Yeah!
Comin' again to save the motherfucking day yeah!
America, Fuck Yeah!
Freedom is the only way, yeah!
Terrorists your game is through
'Cause now you have to answer to America, fuck yeah!
So lick my butt and suck on my balls.
America, fuck yeah.
What you gonna do when we come fo you now?

It's the dream we all share, its the hope for tomorrow.
Fuck Yeah!

Mcdonalds (fuck yeah!), walmart (fuck yeah!), the gap (fuck yeah!), baseball (fuck yeah!), NFL (fuck yeah!), rock and roll (fuck yeah!), the internet (fuck yeah!), slavery, fuck yeah, fuck yeah!

Starbucks (fuck yeah!), disney world (fuck yeah!), porno (fuck yeah!), valium (fuck yeah!), reebok (fuck yeah!), fake tits (fuck yeah!), sushi (fuck yeah!), taco bell (fuck yeah!), rodeo (fuck yeah!), bed bath and beyond.

Liberty (fuck yeah!), waxed lips (fuck yeah!), the alamo (fuck yeah!), bandaids (fuck yeah!), las vegas (fuck yeah!), christmas (fuck yeah!), immigrants (fuck yeah!), popeye (fuck yeah!), democrats (fuck yeah!), republicans (...), sportmanship, books.

I have to admit, I'm happy with that verdict.
Now, he's just another loser in jail for life. I don't think any jihadis will even remember his name in 6 months.
No raisins for him, just a lot of "me-time" as he sits in his solitary jail cell for 23 hours a day for the rest of his life.
Think about that.
