amazing, more so that people actually fall for this shit and buy even more useless crap.

got this from one of my little boy-toys (get yer mind outta the gutter right now, Luke), it's what i kiddingly call those of my male friends here in their 30s who, for some strange reason since summer 04, have gotten very interested in US politics (about which i'm very proud since it was my fault they did). anyway, this was found on some google message board, you might've seen it already. the dude (you know who he is) already told me 'i threw up a little in my mouth and a bit went on my desk at work':

"It is the soldier, not the President who gives us democracy.
It is the soldier, not the Congress
who takes care of us.
It is the soldier, not the Reporter
who has given us Freedom of Press.
It is the soldier, not the Poet
who has given us Freedom of Speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus Organizer who has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate.
It is the soldier, who salutes the flag; who serves beneath the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag, that allows the protester to burn the flag."
GOD BLESS OUR SOLDIERS! so the next time you see a soldier thank him/her for his/her commitment to our freedom.'

this from a 30 year old who couldn't give a fuck about political things--i'm so proud of him.

ps, fucking bastards (not the troops)

ps, i meant a 30-year old Brit to whom i refer as 'the kewl klub kid'.

yeah, i'm proud--most of my younger British friends are reading their asses off over here and worried as fuck (at least going by their mails to me) about what's gonna happen next tuesday.
