To me, that says that you don't have any faith in your country, that you think that our time is up soon, and you're fucking kissing up to all the other countries because you think that they'll show you mercy.
Hollywood rolling out the welcome mat for whoever scrambles onto our shores first. Their shocked, frightened stares will disappear under the zippers of bodybags. Or does Oprah hand a book to the Spetsnaz and smile while the cameras flash? Is that how it all pans out?
Reminds me of the feel we got off a lot of the Iraqis, to be honest. Seemed like they were kinda on the fence, trying to see which way the wind was blowing. Wanted to make sure they backed the right horse.
I just think it's kind of funny. I'm all for the Free Speech thing and everything as you well know, but I've been doing a lot of thinking, and I keep coming to the same conclusion:
Rights aren't real. You don't have the right to ANYTHING. It's just an idea, it has no physical power. Without the ability to protect that "right", it just doesn't mean a thing.
"But that's wrong! That's not how things should be!"
"Should" is a word that needs to be deleted from the English language. It's irrelevant. "Should" is for the people who are afraid to take action.
See, it's like there's this big liberal media machine that exists to baby and coddle everyone who is too sensitive to see the ugly side of reality, while the people who have the stomach (and the drive) to actually go DO things, well...they're out DOING, and life goes on, and the timid liberal housepets get all the sweet, sloppy benefits of being American Livestock.
Come to think of it, why am I bitching? That's kind of awesome. In fact, if I was running this show, I'd probably lean heavily on the entertainment industry, and legalize weed. Anyone not actively interested in the direction of the country can simply choose to believe that their vote doesn't count, and live in a haze, out of the way. Self fulfilling prophecy, and they work their shit jobs to buy their dumb shit toys and status symbols, feeding their selfish little egoes, all the while stimulating this here economy and funding our government so that we can keep on attacking our issues with planning, researching, preparing, rehearsing, executing, cleaning up, pulling out, and discussing what we did right and what we did wrong over a beer. Get up the next day and do it again for as long as we can keep this ship afloat.
Of course, I'd be the bad guy, right? I'd be evil and corrupt and all that, because no one else ever runs this shit, right? Liberal underachiever attitude, that's all. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about the arts, and to be honest, I'm not too good at anything else, but all that shit takes a back seat to the essentials.
So if you're afraid that this country is going down the shitter, don't start sucking foreign cocks just yet. Have a little pride and do something about it. What would you do if we WERE invaded? Submit? Think they'd make you a citizen, just like them? Second class at best, and that's if you're lucky. Look at China. It's a sausage fest because no parents want to have girls. A billion pissed off Chinamen with blue balls flooding into California. Picture that. The raping and pillaging of Beverly Hills. All those aspiring actresses ripe for the taking while our action heroes flee.
Protests in the streets of Seattle.
"WELCOME THE INVADERS! HUGS NOT GUNS!"
I don't think that it's stupid to establish positive relations with all the other countries of the world. I think it's stupid to expect the world to adhere to your G-rating preference. Watch what guns you vilify, you're making it hard to be proud to be counted among you.
As for me, I'm not that worried about our future. There isn't anything you can suggest that they haven't already considered and rejected for its flaws. They are much more interested in making sure that this country keeps on trucking than you are. You're just making yourselves look like a bunch of assholes.
