What is it good for?

For my final post this week in honor of the anniversary of the Iraq war, and my new found Republicanism, I’d like to look at the men out there, and why they love to war.


First the soldier - It’s just good fun! As a guy, we love to do things like drive tanks, create explosions, and shoot guns. Over in Iraq the soldiers get to do all that good stuff. Plus, they get the bonus adrenaline rush of having people shooting back. Just like the movies.


The guy who stays home (aka Jody) – Jody is the guy who supports the war in spirit. Jody is the guy who stays home to keep the country running. Jody is the guy who keeps the soldiers girl warm at night. You know, he’s having a good time.


Finally, to end this week of BS postings -Here is one of my favorite cadences from when I was in Basic Training. Feel free to print it out and sing along the next time one of you stay at home, never actually served, republican fucks, feels like spouting off about how great America is in what we are doing over in Iraq.






Yellow Ribbon




Around her hair she wore a yellow ribbon

She wore it in the spring time, in the early month of May

And if you asked her why the heck she wore it

She'd say she wore it for her soldier who was far, far away

Far away

Far away

She wore it for her soldier who was far, far away

Around the block she pushed a baby carriage

She pushed it in the spring time, in the early month of May

And if you asked her why the heck she pushed it

She'd say she pushed it for her soldier who was far, far away

Far away

Far away

She pushed it for her soldier who was far, far away

Behind the door, her father kept a shotgun

She kept it in the spring time, in the early month of May

And if you asked her why the heck she kept it

She'd say she kept it for her soldier who was far, far away

Far away

Far away

She kept it for her soldier who was far, far away

Around his grave she laid the pretty flowers

She laid them in the spring time, in the early month of May

And if you asked her why the heck she laid them

She'd say she laid them for her soldier who was far, far away

Far away

Far away

She laid them for her soldier who was far, far away

Hey, I served. It was only for about 3 weeks, but I served. Apparently they didn't like me much.
