1, 2, 3, What Are We Fiighting For?

Not the US Constitution, that's for sure.

Like the part about the free exercise of religion ...
Athiest soldier is sent home from Iraq early because of threats to his life.....from other U.S. soldiers (via)
Or the stuff about freedom of the press ...
Right wing to soldiers: You can hold an M-16, but not a Playboy (via)
Check out this bit of pompous nonsense spewing from Freshman Rep. Paul Broun (GA-10) who finds time to get his panties twisted about some high quality air-brushed nek'kid ladies.
"As a Marine, I am deeply concerned for the welfare of our troops and their mission," Broun said on April 17. "Allowing the sale of pornography on military bases has harmed military men and women by: escalating the number of violent, sexual crimes; feeding a base addiction; eroding the family as the primary building block of society; and denigrating the moral standing of our troops both here and abroad. Our troops should not see their honor sullied so that the moguls behind magazines like Playboy and Penthouse can profit. The ‘Military Honor and Decency Act’ will right a bureaucratic--and moral--wrong."
What an ass. Ya think there might be something better the Congressman could be doing with his time?

Folks, This is what this nation is supposed to be about. A nation of individuals respecting one another and organizing themselves with fair-minded governing principles for the betterment of society banding together for mutual protection and advancement of commerce, pooling their resources to educate the young and care for the old.

Instead we get jingoistic bullying masquerading as patriotism, blatant racism in a sweet disguise fully funded by a major political party, one that has fueled our out-of-control military spending with no regard for the consequences, covering themselves with flag-pins while they plan even more wars they cannot and will not pay for while making our soldiers live in shit and looking for more ways to shit on them.

Tell you what Mr. Broun. Take a quick look around and see if there's something besides limiting the reading material of these grown men that you worry so much about that might make their lives worth the sacrifice they are making so you can strut around like a jackass in heat. There are real problems at the Pentagon and throughout this land Mr. Broun, real problems the good people who voted for you hoped you would do something about.

Damn, if Larry Craig should have taught the GOP one thing and one thing only, whatever someone does in the privacy of a bathroom, whether it's putting out feelers to the other stall by tapping out Morse code with your toes, or reading a dirty fucking magazine -- it's no one else's damn business.
