  1. This is brilliant.  Nice clean way to say “F U Jon Carry”...I mean John Kerry...I mean J F’n K...or is it asshole?  I guess I’m not as nice about it as these gentlemen in the picture.

  2. Certainly the best “FU” I have seen.

    And the most well-deserved one, as well.

    Well done!

  4. A friend of mine sent me this picture in an E-mail and told me that these guys are all in his unit, and he helped create the sign.

    I don’t know if he was BSing me or not, but probably not.

  5. Even bigger putz, Squggler - taken with his Vietnam era stance that the draft was unfair to the poor and minority - who weren’t able to ‘defer’ themselves out, Senator Kerry seems to think that the US just should not have a military, since it is unfair to the poor and minority (you know the stupid ones stuck in Iraq; see above).

    Well here goes:

    >However, our research shows that the volunteer force is already equitable.

    We found that whites are one of the most pro­portionally represented groups—making up 77.4 percent of the population and 75.8 percent of all recruits—whereas other racial categories are often represented in noticeably higher and lower propor­tions than the general population.

    After September 11, 2001, the educational quality of recruits rose slightly. Comparing 1999 enlisted recruits to 2003 recruits showed an increase in col­legiate experience. In 2003, a higher proportion of recruits had college experience and diplomas, and a lower percentage had only a high school diploma— a shift of about 3 percentage points.

    We found that recruits tend to come from middle class areas, with disportionately fewer from low-income areas.<

    So I guess Kerry is the stupid one here - this just shows he doesn’t have clue.

  6. I love it!

    How’s the MSM doing with this one?  Hmmmmmm?

    btw Squiggler, I remember the black/brown/dummy argument when the volunteer military was being debated - do you have lexus nexus?
