By the time Chuck Hagel’s done with defense cuts, we’ll be lucky if we can still build aircraft carriers. Rest easy, Palpatine.

By not building the Death Star, we’ve saved about $1 quadrillion. Now Dear Liar can spend that on birth control for Sandra Fluke.

The US government will need a death star if it ever hopes to get the upper hand against 50 million militant redneck yahoos armed with assault rifles who have vowed to fight to the death. Maybe those yahoos can join forces with the islamic yahoos, and the anarchist yahoos and other enemies of the US government and call themselves the Rebel Alliance.

Should be a good fight. And don’t think we’re not going to cover that exhaust port.

It’ll be 100 years until the U.S.S. Enterprise CVN-80 is built at this rate….

The roots of bigotry, I think, lay deep in a person’s need to assert their worth or social status above someone else. I’d say that might even stem from a person being so self conscious about their own shortcomings they feel this unrational need to project.

So, isn’t it great that there’s a class of people we’ve invented where you can still get away with doing that? How great is that for people like you? An entire class of people we’ve sanctioned ridicule over.

Except that our political leaders have already allied with them. So as you assert, we are on the side of America and our political leaders are not.

As a one of the 50 million gun-toting rednecks, I should thank you for even recognizing that we even exist. I would like to point out, however, we’ve been serving in the military for years, and are more apt to have done voluntary service for this country.

If there is any doubt, talk to a surviving jihadist who still wonders how the h$ll those rednecks can play a banjo but still shoot the living cr@p out of them vs. their wild-eyed mouth-foaming “Allahu-Akbar” yelling crowd.
