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.
OK,I was in the Navy,and if I see someone in uniform I might walk over to them,and talk to them for a few minutes,maybe ask them where they are stationed,what they do,etc,because it’s interesting to me,but am I going to say,hey you,take off my uniform,your hammer,and sickle commie support badge is supposed to be on your right shoulder instead of your left.Thats just disrespectful,and who am I to say,hey you didn’t serve.Honestly I don’t care about the stupid uniform.Its the person wearing it that counts
