A Liberal Marines Progressive Perspective

Marines are defenders of the republic and the Constitution. That is our oath, that is our purpose, that is our calling. Many are Democrats. This is the journal of one such Marine. This leatherneck's progressive perspective is as follows...

Read "War Is A Racket" by 2-time Medal of Honor recipient Maj.Gen.S.D.Butler, plus Lewis B. Puller, Jr.'s "Fortunate Son" and maybe then you'll understand. Semper Fi!

Giving As Good As We Get

I have been noticing for a while now (over the last few months actually) how it seems the GOP has a new semantic strategy in that they are now referring to the Democratic Party as the "Democrat" Party. Has anyone else out there noticed this sad, fascist GOoPer attempt at doublespeak? This really came home during the "great week" when the Ohio electors were contested in Congress (thank goodness for Sen. Boxer and Rep. Tubbs-Jones). A number of GOoPers (both in the House and the Senate)continuously referred to the Democratic Party as the "Democrat" Party. I found this to be jarring and obnoxious and (as far as I was concerned) the last straw. Those bastards will stop and nothing to try to erode what so many have stood up for and (sadly) been felled for. It's like the GOP has been taken over by a gang of sophomoric, pubescent boys giggling and thinking of little smartass ways of operating and sniping at their opponents. So, in the great spirit of bipartisanship, I propose that all good Democrats begin referring to the Republican Party as the "Republic" Party. It certainly will take the sting out of their sad attempt at undermining what the Democratic Party is all about.This is what I'll be doing. There's a kind of justice that one feels when you say "Republic" Party for the first time. Fight fire with fire I always say. Don't kid yourselves, this is war. Hell, that's how they see it. Semper Fidelis
