Bucking For The Role Of The Architect In The Next Matrix?

Shorter Zell Miller: Military stretched too thin? Don't blame the Administration -- abortion has killed the babies that otherwise would have been born into and become productive members of the system. (Via an approving Larry Kudlow, who should probably stick to the economy.)

There were, of course, no abortions before Roe v. Wade.

Miller's too "pretty" to have any brains.

In this day and age, that's a pretty wasteful approach to producing brave warriors. If the fundies weren't so damned picky about it, we could clone ouselves several hundred thousand disposable Pat Tillmans -- instead of just killing with friendly fire the one copy of Pat Tillman that we actually had.

Kudlow doesn't know any more about the economy than he does about anything else. I won't say he's a perfect idiot, but only because no one's perfect.

Don't forget the American Indians we slaughtered. If we hadn't killed them, they would be productive members of the military right now.

Kudlow thinks the path to war is paved with tax-cuts, while Miller might better consider the conservative chicken-hawks role in depressing enlistments; almost every other prominent rightwing Republican of recent vintage. Newt Gingrich, ex-Speaker of the House, went the Cheney route [of obtaining deferments]; Kenneth Starr, Clinton's legal nemesis, had psoriasis; Jack Kemp, Dole's running mate in 1996, was unfit because of a knee injury, though he heroically continued as a National Football League quarterback for another eight years; Pat Buchanan had arthritis in his knees, though he soon became an avid jogger.

The best story concerns Rush Limbaugh, the ferociously bellicose radio personality, who allegedly had either "anal cysts" or an "ingrown hair follicle on his bottom". It is not my custom to mock others' ailments, but anyone who has listened to Limbaugh's programme can imagine the dripping scorn he would bring to the revelation that a prominent Democrat had skipped a war over something like that. Also, in his case, a pain in the arse is peculiarly appropriate.1

This 'man,' Zell Miller, is a University of Georgia graduate.

Never forget that.

I thought I had become jaded by now, but seriously this is the most shocking statement I've heard in years. TCR has it right with his title, the elite in this country simply think us chattel are born and bred to do nothing but feed the system that keeps them rich and comfortable. Feed it with blood. Ted Rall drew a comic once where he suggested it might be easier to apply enormous heat and pressure to a few dozen battalions of U.S. troops and simply convert them directly into oil. Hey, minus the bones, each soldier's gotta be worth a couple gallons of petroleum. Of course, nobody believes the war was really all about the oil, but we sure as hell ain't leaving Iraq until we have some oil to show for our efforts.

So, they are admitting then, that it is poverty and lack of opportunity that makes people join the military.

If all these women not in a postion to take good care of a child had been forced to give birth, then these hopeless children could be dying in Iraq instead. Nice.
