I keep seeing on Twitter people who 1) Are outraged that Sacha Baron Cohen insulted injured veterans by impersonating one of them and 2) are devoted supporters of a guy who said of POWs, "I Like People Who Weren't Captured."

I do feel the people in this country have developed a mystique that overvalues veterans. Don't get me wrong, they do deserve our appreciation and I hope the government agencies in charge of taking care of them do there job, but we should not hold them in such high regard that they are mini-gods above reproach.

It's definitely youtube because it plays...but then it jumps.

Any way, could be malware, so I'll check it. On an iPad that means clearing cookies and history.

Not Sacha Cohen-related. Something ain't right with Ted Cruz.

This campaign ad, for example:

A: Poll: Senate race between Cruz, O'Rourke a dead heat

It's only a shocker because the race is in rudy red Texass.

Any air time Alex Jones gets is life wasted. Still, this clip of him getting into it with Rubio is a form of entertainment.

Jones is plain nuts. And I guess that's what it takes to humanize Rubio because he came off as rather normal and human with his reaction.

Sacha Baron Cohen Reveals He Filmed an Interview That was Too Grim for Even "Who is America?"


Quote:

And there was an interview that didn't make it in, with Gio. We were shooting some of this at the time of Harvey Weinstein. We wanted to investigate how does someone like Harvey Weinstein gets away with doing whatget away with criminality, essentially. And the network that surrounds him. We decided that Gio would interview a concierge in Las Vegas. During the interview, I revealed that basically Gio has molested an eight-year-old boy. Now, mind you, this is extreme comedy and we thought that the guy would leave the room. Instead, this concierge stays in the room and I go, listen, you've got to help me get rid of the problem. And this guy starts advising Gio how to get rid of this issue. We even at one point talk about murdering the boy, and the concierge is just saying, "Well, listen, I'm really sorry. In this country, we can't just drown the boy. This is America we don't do that." And then, in the end, he puts me in touch with a lawyer who can silence the boy. I became really dark stuff. And then at the end of the interview I say, listen, I want to go out and celebrate now. Can you get me a date for tonight? He says, "What do you mean, a date?"

I go, you know, like a young man. He says, "Well, what kind of age?" I say, lower than Bar Mitzvah but older than eight. And he says, "Yeah, I can put you in touch with somebody who can get you some boys like that."

Agreed!

Sometimes people join for truly patriotic reasons, like many WW2 guys who dropped everything after Pearl Harbor or 9/11. George Bush Sr. and Pat Tillman comes to mind, but there are many more. And many guys suffered beyond words. I know some old guys here will have commentary, but I'm thinking of my coworker's dad who was on the Buthan Death March, or my brother's godfather and D-Day.

However, other guys sign up for the military only for economic or work opportunities, as they had no other choice. Some guys do it because they lack self respect and think the uniform will give them social standing. And many of these guys don't have much of a thought about ethics or morality of their actions, because they are just 18 and haven't crossed that bridge in life yet. They thus allow themselves to be tools of older men's will or poor command.

I imagine Presidents and Kings could negotiate better peace deals if it were they who had to go out on the battle field. Thus, I sometimes purse my lips when I hear about the glorification of vets. A willingness to be used like that is how we got here. I'm not willing to sacrifice myself like that. Particularly for a president like Trump. I'd only serve if he were on the other side.
