“Do you do this shit on purpose?” Yes Candace, he does, and that purpose is to demonstrate, beyond any reasonable doubt, that he truly IS a moron. Should it really come as a surprise? Look at some of the OTHER people who end up here. Yes, they are everywhere.
throwingtofu, Obviously Larry isnt a moron if he’s able to see the subtle humor in the OP and flip it around for the purposes of pissing Candace off. It obviously worked based on her’s, and your, reaction. You sound like a pretentious, up-tight fuckwad and a card carrying member of the the aforementioned ‘true moron’ club you were describing. All these “look at how self aware I am, you should be too” Candace type posts are bullshit. Kudos to Larry. Oh, and support the troops.
And yet the people that post this crap would applaud somebody who would intentionally stay seated if Obama was in the parade. I hate those people. And I also hate Obama. But I think I hate chain emails (which is where this picture really makes its rounds) about 10 times more.
There’s no way I would stand up for marines. Or Obama. Or the flag. But I don’t dislike Obama (at least not as much as the Turd Party alternative). I do dislike marines. The flag is a piece of cloth, and I refuse to exert myself for inanimate cloth. Plus, I see no reason I should respect my or any other country via the action of standing.
Basically in those pictures, the only person standing is the one who is too old to realize that the marines fight (and the flag stands) for corporate greed.
mad2physicist…you totally SHOULD stand for the flag, hippy. Because you were taught to and because you were told to. Does that mean nothing to you?! How the fuck are they going to continue to recruit the youth of the nation into the meat-grinders of the corporate military machines if your enlightened…errr, I mean COMMUNIST ideals of self-realisation are allowed to spread? FFS, man! What if they threw a war and nobody showed?
“Because you were taught to and because you were told to”…Does this work for everything in life? Should kids whose racist parents tell them to hate people of other races do it “because they were taught to and because they were told to”?
