    Bunkers under every house!


    These idiots will not rest until they have gotten their way.  Here we are, just newly out of Iraq, and these morons want to go hit Iran.  It makes me want to reach for a case of duct tape -- lots of busy little hands and busy little mouths that need to be kept still and quiet.

          Military service has been acceptable for the children of aristocrats for a very long time: the best expression of their superiority or something like that.  The neocons would welcome it as a necessary ingredient for a second, third, etc. "Greatest Generation": all raised on war whether at home or abroad.  Remember that neoconservatism has just as much to say about domestic politics: people just don't talk about it as much.  They view war as an indispensable tool for building national solidarity; instilling an aggressive, proactive, and preemptive mentality, while subordinating it to an absolute authority; shutting down class conflict for good; and teaching frugality and self-sacrifice.  Just like Hitler: our children must be heroes and demigods or they will die.

          Threatening their own flabby asses would shut them down quick.

          Do you know why they call it the American Dream? Because it only happens when you're asleep.
