Hi readers. Thanks for coming by for a read.
Gangs, whether it’s Hell’s Angels, Banditos, cops or [now] Army Navy Marine and Airforce volunteerees, tend to be jealous whenever some non-member sports their colors. A tattoo artist acquaintance in Austin, Texas, started keeping a Thompson submachine gun under his mattress when he learned he’d tattooed a non-Bambino with a Bandito badge of honor, for instance.
But now what with the Valor-this and Valor-that being bandied about by the ‘thankyouforyourservice’ clubs, the big issue of the day is what you can see down at the VA hospital any working day. People sitting around lying to one another about what John Waynes they used to be.
However, this is mostly a different breed. Guys claiming to have been Navy Seals or Army Snipers getting all riled up because some dumbass down at the mall is pretending to be a soldier. Sick enough the dumbass wants to do it, but how needy are those Seals and Snipers who haven’t suicided yet over the serious bullshit going on inside their heads? They’ve got to go around looking for dumbasses to out to jack themselves up into something with a life worth living?
Probably there needs to be a little Ferguson platoon burning down the local recruiting offices. This stuff is getting all out of hand. Those guys are beginning to believe their own bullshit.
Now back in the day when I was John Wayne I wouldn’t have put up with all that crap by either side.
