I see the patriots at Move America Forward (thank God I have found them- a veritable treasure trove of blogging material) have a grand new plan to support our troops and keep up with morale on the home front- TSHIRTS FOR THE WOUNDED! so while our soldiers are convalescing, they can stop worrying about the injuries that will haunt them for life, and display their sacrifice in style:
I hope you all head on over to Move America Forward, because if we have learned anything the past few years, it is what our troops really need are t-shirts when they are wounded. Considering the shortage of Purple hearts, I think this endeavor fills a real need (and in fairness, I thought the claims that we were short Purple Hearts was indicative of anything was a stupid and overblown charge on the left- it meant, if anything, that someone screwed up the ordering of Purple hearts).
BTW- no mention on the Move America Forward website about whether 3.5% is too much of a pay increase, or demands for more veteran healthcare, or… you get the point.
Did you ever notice it’s never “I support our troops”? No, they just tell other people to support them.
That’s not true, rachel. I’ve seen tshirts which say “I support our troops”. The backs say “That’s why I want them home.”
Just to watch John’s head explode… I think I first noticed the idiocy that is Melanie Morgan and Move America Forward when they did their “You Don’t Speak for Me, Cindy” Caravan:
MAF was nowhere to be found when the Walter Reed scandal surfaced a few months ago. Support the troops, indeed…
What? No Purple Heart band-aids?
Boy John, your case of Moonbatitis is really getting out of hand.
True patriots know that soldiers are supported by symbolic gestures like placing a yellow magnet made in China on your car and wearing T-shirts that show a complete lack of understanding of the complex war they are fighting.
How dare you insult our soldiers by suggesting they are sissy enough to want decent equipment, something more than a joke of a “raise” or decent health care? I mean, you’ve seen Rambo. He took on the bad guys without a shirt and he didn’t go running to the VA when he got wounded.
Sorry, still in rehab…
Melanie Morgan ought to change her name to Mealy Mouth. She is one twisted twit. What MAF should give our wounded soldiers are ‘Support our troops’ bras and jock straps! T-shirts are so yesterday.
I wonder how many people are enriching themselves in the ‘support out troops’ movement. I would not put it past some lowlifes to squeeze the situation to stuff their pockets with cash.
I rode my motorcycle up the Oregon coast yesterday heading to Vancouver, Washington (365 miles, 9 hours of fun!), and I saw turrists everywhere! They were in the waysides, in the state parks, on the beaches, everywhere!! It was a total invasion!
Turrists means terrorists? Oh, I thought it was tourist! Well, same thing… ;)
Heading back home today, nothing like 700+ miles on a bike in less than 38 hours. Having a bony ass don’t help…lol!
See y’all on the return home. Don’t give Tim and John too much grief. ;)
Melanie Morgan: The new Phyllis Schafly.
From Schafly’s wikipedia entry:
In honor of Phyllis, I am wearing a paper diaper right now, and I urge all of you to wear them too.
In any event, the “conservative movement,” which was always a marketing ploy and never a coherent theory of government in the first place, has always needed its clowns to get the crowd stirred up. I guess Melanie is the new Queen of Batshit Crazy.
Hadn’t heard of Move America Forward before. Went over to their website and most of what I saw was just links to sell crap, or to get you registered after providing a fair amount of personal info.
Did a quick Google; found a little info about their finances…
So yeah, they support the troops. To the tune of about 10%. Sounds just about the norm percentage for those types of Hannity buttplugs making money off of or advancing their swill off the backs of those deployed. Disgusting.
Hmmmm. Is Uncle Sam missing his left arm? Is this what you mean by t-shirts for injured troops? How odd.
That is amazing, Psycheout. I’m stunned by how nuanced that graphic design is!
An America that doesn’t surrender to terrorists because it’s not burdened by a “left wing!”
We Terrurist-luving LIEBRUL scum-rats gnawed it off.
We start work on his balls tomorrow.
Nice piece of research by Tsulagi. There has GOT to be a ring in Dantean hell reserved for such people, although I’m not quite sure whether it’s located in Malebolge or Cocytus.
Not only are there no Purple Heart band-aids, there are no Purple Hearts! Support the troops! Get them killed and maimed! RAWR
I understood that the armed forces are still handing out Purple Hearts that were stockpiled in the 1940s in anticipation of the invasion of Japan.have they finally run out?
The only way these T-shirts can be of any help is if you turn them into bandages. Then they can really save a life.
