Here I pretend to be occupied by holding a ring in my teeth between calls

Civilians don't seem to want to accept this reality. For some reason the average civilian that I work with wants to put a G.I. on a pedestal. That shouldn't be the case. I still hang out with a lot of my active duty friends, the same ones I had when I was active. We (or they) are just normal people doing an other than normal job. Just like all jobs and careers, there are going to be some dumb asses. Airman Retardo or PFC Dickless from Podunk Arkansas sounds like an idiot for a reason, he is one. For now. Given time, he will morph into a solid troop with a functional frontal lobe, but for now he's a mumbling fuck off that can't puke out a whole sentence. A lot of them are 18 - 19 years old, just out of high school, with hardly any life experience. Guess what ladies and gentlemen, that's a stupid kid. When I go out somewhere and I see 18 and 19 y/o's I usually say to myself, "fucking stupid kids, just shut the fuck up already". The only difference is that the troop will learn quicker, and have a lot more responsibility, so god bless them.
I love all my troops out there for what they're doing, but that doesn't mean I have to like them all.

A few years back he had a gun drawn on him by his brother and he defended himself by shooting his sibling squarely center mass. His brother lived, be it rather shook up and shitting in a bag for a couple of months.
A few months ago he felt the need to help a friend put his family's very old dog to sleep the inexpensive way. His friend took his gun and the dog into the desert. He shot the dog point blank and the animal was unphased, other than the wound that was presented post haste. The dog started to run and was shot once more. Two very distinct wounds were found on the animal the next day. Out of the feeling of pure guilt, the animal was taken to a vet and put to sleep the very expensive way.
This is unacceptable. If money is spent on ammunition that is intended to present serious stopping power in the way of killing then it should do what is intended to.
Thanks for your time.

Dad, I'm sorry I can't help in your time of need. I'm sorry that we can't see eye to eye. I apologize for not being able to support your actions. But, I still want you to know. You're my dad, and I love you.

He didn't know where he was from.
He's born in New York. OK. Raised for a while in Baltimore. Went to a performing arts school with Jada Pinkett. Then he moves to Marin City, CA. Marin is not exactly the cornerstone of ghetto thug activity in this universe, but he repped it and that was cool, because every city has a ghetto and every ghetto has those thugs. But then he bounces and starts hollerin' Oakland. HUh?? When and how did this come to play? And then the coup de gras, once he's on Death Row, He starts yellin' L.A.
Yet nobody seems to see a lack of consistency.
Now everybody wears his T-shirts, has tattoos of him, and yells out rest in peace 'Pac, when most didn't know him personally. The only ones that should be allowed to consistently say that are the ones that worked with him before he was an "icon". Where the fuck were all these people when he was alive (other than the rest in peace folks)?
Let me recap.
He was good, I enjoy his music, he's not a musical god, he didn't know where he should be from, and get off of his dick.

My wife and I went grocery shopping on Thursday. On Friday she went out of town for a convention. I took my kids out for pizza that night. Pizza is delicious, mainly because cheese is delicious, and if you don't like pizza you're probably a fucking communist.
Saturday afternoon we decided to go to the mall and kick it. When I opened up the car door I got blasted with a smell reminiscent of parmesan cheese. I asked my kids if they had left some pizza in the car. We searched all over the back seat and found nothing. I figured that a cheese packet had gotten spilled in the back, no harm - no foul.
That night we left the mall about 8 p.m. The car wreaked like old cheese still. Still, I couldn't find the problem.
I got home around 9 p.m. I decided to open the trunk.
In the trunk I found two gallons of what used to be milk. The milk that had been purchased on Thursday. It had sat in the trunk in 100+ degree heat for almost 2 days. And it gagged me. Inside the gallon containers was a yellowed whitish clump of what looked like coagulated semen. That's when I realized it. This is actually step one in making cheese.
I have been cleaning out my trunk for 3 days straight now. It no longer smells like cheese. It now smells like dirty crotchal regions. Not really sure which smell is better, or better yet, which I would prefer to deal with.
Cheese guys, I do not envy your job.

1. Meet The Feebles:
Peter Jackson (from Lord of the Rings fame) makes a movie about puppet-ish characters trying to make it big in a broadway musical. Picture the Muppets Take Manhattan on crack with a lot of violence.
An Ohio town gets hit with a Tornado and the backwoods townfolk are shown in there day to day lives afterwards. Hilights include a guy pimping out his down syndrome ridden sister to teenagers, a black midget trying to avoid the advances of an apparently gay drunk man, and kids killing cats to sell to a chinese restaurant.
The Quiroz Bros. from Darkroom Familia make a movie about Chicano dope pushers and the white guys that double crossed them. Amazing racial slurs profound. Examples: "Casper?? Perfect name for a whiteboy." &
"He said Merry X-mas and shot him" "I would of said Feliz Navidad, but I don't talk the Beaner talk".
4. American Pimp
Documentary by the Hughes bros. about - you guessed it - pimpin!!! Look for Rosebudd, with two D's for a double dose of his pimpin.
5. The Enforcer
Jet Li is an undercover cop with an ailing wife and young son. Action ensues. Best scene = Jet Li's 10 yr old son gets his head smashed through a glass table.
David Caruso is an investigator, but who cares, a bitch gets viciously hit by a car and it's worth watching over and over and over.
Hilarious!!! Sexism, hipocracy, teabagging, and all with an accent.
8. Memphis Belle
In WW II pilots were required to fly a certain quota of bombing missions, most never completed that quota before being shot down. Very dramatic movie.
9. Angela's Ashes
Useless father, struggling mother, public housing, and no money. It's not South Central L.A., it's Ireland in the early 20th century.
10. What Dreams May Come
The only movie to actually make me cry in years. A couple lose their kids, then dad dies. They go to heaven. Mom can't handle it and kills herself, sending her to hell. Dad sacrifices his place in heaven to stay with the woman he loves in hell.

I'm not sure if anybody appreciates my specific list though. I hope you do.
I love when it's over 100 degrees out and you go to the grocery store and just stand in the frozen foods aisle, hanging out at the mall all day but never buying anything, and even though I love sleeping in - I do love waking up early once in a while just to see the sun rise on a summer morning.
But my all time favorite thing is just driving around. I turn up the music with some old school jams, or maybe a little cool groovey beat, and just ride. At sunset when the sun's starting to go down and you have all the windows down with that warm summer breeze blowing, you have your own personal soundtrack to the end of your day, and everything in the world just seems right.
That's what I love.

I wonder if the Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons would keep harrassing me if I answered looking like this and telling them "asalamalakem" and professing belief of Mohammed.
My nephew answered my door to them one morning and told them he was an atheist, or possibly a devil worshipper. As they left my door they told him, "We'll pray for you". His answer to that was, "OK, I'll sacrifice a dog for you."
He's a good kid.
