Jack & Jill went up the hill. Only Jack came down. Jill was a fucking terrorist.
I think we can all agree that there are certain bodily functions in life that brings us some serious pleasure. Like the feeling we get right before we feed the sharks for instance; or, that feeling we get right before we send thousands of potential little babies shooting out of our bodies. (Man version). But there are things that cause us extreme bodily pain and discomfort as well. Like the feeling we get when there is a blow to that area that contains two very sensitive little jewels packaged in a nice little gift bag. (Man version) Or the pain that contractions bring right before or during child birth. (Woman version)
But there is a debate going on in this country about pain and torture, which quite frankly is a little puzzling. I mean you have to wonder what kind of human being doesn't think that simulating drowning another human being is torture. They call it water boarding, and even our new potential Attorney General isn't quite so sure if it should qualify as torture. But this is life in the frat boy's A-merry-ca, we are ll fucking cowboys these days. Everyone things they are Jack Bauer on "24". Bring em on, we can handle those stinking islamo fascist terrorist, and if they won't give up the goods we will torture it out of them. That will show em to fuck with A-merry-ca. Yeah right, until one of our boys are captured in some hostile country and we see his body parts strung up on a power line in the middle of [Insert the name of any major Arab city here]
Ask John McCain, he was one of those boys once, and the last time I checked, he was against torture.
But John McCain isn't one of the 24% of the blind loyalist to the frat boy in this country. These people would condone burning the families of these alleged terrorist in front of them to get to the truth. Hey, all in the name of protecting the homeland. ( I agree with Chris Matthews, "homeland" is a fucked up name for a country. -Think of the Nazis in Hitler's Germany-- Isn't it funny how we have all these new words in the A-merry-can lexicon since the frat boy came to power? Weapons of mass destruction, homeland security, Islams fascist terrorist,domestic surveillance. But I seriously digress) So back to protecting the homeland.
How far are we willing to go when we torture someone to protect the homeland? According to the frat boy and his minions, as long as it doesn't shock the conscience it's cool. And just what would qualify as shocking the conscience? Well, poking someones eyes out with a needle I suppose would qualify.
But you gotta love it. Just the fact that we are even having this debate shows you just how far we have fallen as a civilized society. And in spite of what FAKE NEWS would have you believe, Osama really is winning the war on terror. Newsflash; "24" is a fucking T.V. show, and Jack Bauer is Donald Southerland's son, who can stay sober about as long as one of the commercials in it.
Oh well, I think I am going to enjoy one of those physical pleasures I just wrote about.
Hey, it's 9:00 AM on Saturday morning, guess which one it's going to be?
