Blanket

If you read nothing else today, read The Officers' Club: Black Coffee Blogging by Charlie Munn. The ignorance of the masses is staggering.

As I wrote on The Officers Club:

Excellent, excellent post -- with the exception of John Wayne. Walking away won't win hearts and minds. That, on its other hand, is arrogance we don't need and does the military, who has sufficient enemies in about 15 square miles surrounding the Capitol, no favors.

You, sir, have hit the HUGE proverbial nail on the proverbial head -- sometimes I've wondered the same: are we too successful for our own good? -- that we have bred persons so distanced from the Real World, making decisions in a sterile vacuum unused to the squalor of Reality.

Huh. I like that phrase. The Squalor of Reality. Hmmm. I feel a new post coming on. . .

And yes, the ignorance of the masses is astounding but not unanticipated, considering the state of American education, media and parenting.

I've said it before and I'll say it again -- we simply won't "get it" until there IS a mushroom cloud enveloping a major American city -- and even THEN I might not be convinced.

I'm glad you guided me to that blog, Mr. Armstrong!

As I stated there as well: "Excellent post! As much as I love Starbucks; I have great disdain for the apathetic americans (notice, the lowercase 'a') in this country. I had one guy use the 'Few Good Men' quote to justify every aspect of the Patriot Act. Because he wants to leave the sole responsibility of protecting America in the hands of our government and military whereas it is every American's responsibility to be prepared to fight. But these pansies cripple us!"

I have Red Dawn on tv; and it is sad to think that the mentality of the politicians is what many regular Americans follow and that they will basically be fodder for the enemies. Pretty sad. Pretty Sad!

I thought you guys would like that. Charlie put is so well I didn't have much more to say, other than, "here, read this."

Neo, you remind me of the WSJ column: "Shut Up, They Explained" I wanted to post about today as well. So much to talk about, so little time before "Lost" is on. ;)
