Militaryisms

by Clifford F. Thies 

SNAFU - "Situation Normal All Fouled Up" (this and many other expressions have been cleaned up) 

FUBAR - "Fouled Up Beyond All Recognition" BOHICA - "Bend over, Here It Comes Again" 

 FIGMO - "Forget it, I got my orders." As when you're close to being discharged and don't care much about anything. Oh-dark-thirty - so early it's still dark outside, e.g., 5:30. 

"Squared away" - everything is in order. As when you look in a locker and all the socks are properly rolled up, like so many rectangles. 

"Hurry up and wait" - rush to get there, to stand in line for a long time. 

"Soup Sandwich" - The situation is totally messed up. Usually, everybody has to take a bite of the soup sandwich. 

"Smoking and joking" - Standing around, smoking cigarettes and talking with each other. Also, "light 'em if you got 'em." 

"Secret Squirrel" - special ops personnel, classified messages, and such. 

"Pucker Factor" - dangerous and scary situation. "Pop Smoke" - Literally, throw a smoke grenade as a signal for a helicopter to land. Figuratively, to get out of a situation fast. As in, to un-ass a place. 

"Nut to Butt" - Squeeze together very close. 

"High and to the right" - Literally, the spotter didn't see the impact of the round on the target area. Figuratively, you have no idea what somebody is talking about. 

"Field Strip" - Literally, to take you rifle apart, usually to clean it. Figuratively, to analyze a situation. 

"Break it down Barney-style" - Explain something so even a child can understand it. The reference is to the TV show Barney and Friends. 

"Three Days and a Wake Up" - If you're going to be discharged in four days, the last day doesn't really count. It's only a wake up. 

Blue Falcon - Buddy F**k (sorry, I couldn't clean this one up.) 

Jody - Narrow definition, the guy who stayed home when you went off to war. More generally, marching cadences, as in, "Ain't no use to lookin' down. Ain't no discharge on the ground. Ain't no use to going home. Jody's got your girl and gone." 

REMF - Rear Area Mother Effer - A Non-front line soldier. Pogue Bait - Originally, pogue referred to a young male who succumbed to gay advances. The word was adapted to refer to REMFs and pogue bait to the various temptations that lured them into traps. Eventually, pogue bait came to refer to the over-priced snack foods that were sold off trucks to soldiers on break during training exercises. 

Kiwi Injection - Kiwi is a brand of shoe polish. A sergeant might find he needs to a private a kiwi injection by kicking him in the ass. 

Embrace the Suck - Most of the time in the military, things suck. Embrace it. 

GI - Originally, Government Issued-supplies. Then, during WWII, replacement personnel. Later, all soldiers. Then combined with Joe, meaning any soldier. Fresh Fish - New arrivals. Civil War-era.

No offensive Halloween costumes!

by Clifford F. Thies 

A number of colleges are sending out notices to students to avoid "offensives" Halloween costumes. According to the University of Minnesota, costumes that perpetuate "racial, cultural and gender" stereotypes are offensive. 

According to the University of Colorado, sombreros, geishas, and cowboys and Indians are offensive. The Ohio State University is running a "we're a culture, not a costume" campaign. Somehow, we think these schools are over-looking costumes that actually are offensive.
Anna Rexia - celebrate eating disorders! 
Viking costume - celebrating raping pillaging and burning! 
Nazi bondage costume - how kinky! The James Holmes Mask - Instead of a mass murderer wearing a Batman mask, you can wear a mask of the mass murderer!
Then we have the most offensive costumes of them all: Republican terrorists, the ones you strap bombs on themselves, hold the country hostage, and demand ransom.

The president's made up response

by Clifford F. Thies

Independent of the White House’s lie, excuse me, “miscommunication,” that a Republican Congressman said “I can’t even stand to even look at you” directly President Obama, is a further lie of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Reid, according to the Huffington Post of October 25th, said he was “sorry” to have to tell his fellow Democratic Senators of the incident, and that added that the President responded with dignity, saying merely that he respected that Republicans and Democrats have their differences. 

Was Reid talking about the same person who calls the Republicans extortionists? Holding America hostage? Demand ransom? Are a bunch of deadbeats? 

Yes, that man. That man of dignity.
We now know that (A) Reid wasn’t present at the time the supposed incident took place because (B) the supposed incident never took place, and was only (C) told about the incident by a lying sonuvabitch from the White House. So, (D) we now know that Reid, the sunuvabitch that he is, was embellishing on a lie. And why? Because it plays to the prejudices of the Obamanoids out there. What follows is a small sampling of the Obamanoid response to Reid’s embellishment, captured before the responses could be erased via PoliticsUSA

THE PRESIDENT DESERVES A MEDAL!  
“President Obama’s response was admirable. His dignity and restraint in the face of such disrespect is something that America can proud of.” Oregon Progressive, October 24, 2013.  THE PRESIDENT IS A SAINT! THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2013 Heroic President Obama Responds to Rep. Pete Sessions' Ugly Insult with Dignity and Grace http://www.politicususa.com/2013/10/24/heroic-president-obama-responds-rep-pete-sessions-ugly-insult-dignity-grace.html GOD BLESS THIS MAN! God Bless the President of the United States · 68,000 like this 19 hours ago · "Reid then told the caucus about the incident on Tuesday and named Sessions, according to one of the two Democratic senators who spoke to HuffPost. Reid also told the caucus that he was “sorry” to have to tell them about it, per this senator, but gave Obama credit for his “dignified” response to Sessions. Reid reportedly told the caucus that Obama responded to Sessions by saying he understood that they disagreed on many issues and he respected their differences." Had enough yet? 
I TOLD THAT REPUBLICAN EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT OF HIM, NOT BEING AS DIGNIFIED AS OBAMA  
Susan Lajoie Just contacted Rep. Pete Sessions by email through his Facebook page. Told him exactly what I thought about his reprehensible comment directly to Pres. Obama. Do the same if you want him to know how you feel. I believe, as I wrote to him, that he owes Pres. Obama a face-to-face apology immediately, if he hasn't already done so.  
THE PROOF THAT THE REPUBLICAN IS GUILTY IS THAT HE SAYS HE’S INNOCENT  
Kathi Stirling-Morris I just watched him being interviewed and he was indignant as if he had a right to be. He is denying he said this but because of his reaction I believe he said it. Besides they have been so disrespectful of this President since he was elected. They are shameful!!

WHY DO WE PUT UP WITH HATE? 
Susan Lajoie Wow!!! President Obama has more integrity, class, and incredible self-restraint than that bozo....why do Americans put up with people who just hate others for the sake of hating??!?!? 

YES, SUSAN, WHY DO WE PUT UP WITH HATE?

Okay, remove Delaware, Rhode Island we get it. But Indiana?

by Clifford F. Thies 

As of noon today, the top seven states that people on Reddit would remove from the U.S., if they had to remove one, are:
7. Delaware 
6. Florida 
5. Rhode Island 
3. and 4. (tie) North and South Dakota 
2. Indiana 
1. Mississippi
As for Delaware and Rhode Island, who would notice? Losing Florida, being that it's a peninsula, at least wouldn't much disrupt the interstate highway network. Going around Mississippi would pose a problem for people driving from Atlanta to, say, Dallas, but, it is advisable. 

As for losing North and South Dakota, I don't know if want two OPEC countries in the middle of our continent each one of which possesses 200 Minuteman ICBMs. But, if we were to lose Indiana, just where would the people of Illinois go to buy fireworks for the 4th of July?
