One Raspberry Ice Crystal Light, Shirley! Don't drink it too quick,
that stuff has a potent kick! Would you like a leetle more hemlock in
Who fuckin' cares? We went, we kicked the Bosches asses because we
were fresh, late inning relievers, after they and the Brits and the
Frogs had pretty much worn each other down to the quick, and our
allies owed us, big time. Lotta good it did, after those self-same
allies mucked up the high ideals espoused by Woodrow Wilson, and
blamed Germany for the whole thing when they were _all_ to blame,
bankrupted what was left of Germany with "reparations," and set the
fuse on WWII, twunny years later. Hoomin Beans aren't capable of
lighting matches without burning the house down.

Another liberal-fueled guilt trip. So what?

THA' sounds like a good lib line of reasonin'. Tryin' only to tear
down an' give away what was fought and died for by our ancestors, who
were only tryin' to give us the best world they could leave us as
their legacy. Let's give it _all_ away. "We're not worthy!"
Ennyway, they're 'Merkins, now: Hawaiians. The Hawaiian Islands would
be a Chinese puppet state in twunny years if we cut it loose to find
its own way. Who you gonna give it back to, dead people? I think the
peeple living there would rather things stay much as they are, rather
than be thrust into independence. But that's just my thot.
Of course, you listen to Steven Walker, (?) former Comptroller General
of the U.S., 1998-til recently, now of the Peter Peterson Foundation,
who's going around the country now, trying to be Chicken LIttle on the
fuktup U.S. economy, we're all doomed already. Doomed, I tell ya.
The Chinese and the rest of our creditors are going to call in our
trillions of paper-dollar IOUs pretty soon, when the moment is ripe,
instead of propping us up for the good little bleedin' pocketbook we
are, and we'll _all_ be beholden to foreign interests in a flash.
We're doomed, I tell ya, doomed!

I love a good argument as well as the next scumbag biker. It's the
all the deflection and duckin' , shuckin' and jivin' instead of
logical arguing that gets my dander up. (There's only _three_
periods in a row in a grammatical ellipsis ... btw.) But it's bad form
to criticize anyone's spellin' an' grammar in th' bar, ain't it?
I thot maybe he'd read it an' get some ideas, tho.
