The gloves are off. The Left is telling us, in no uncertain terms, what they deeply, truly believe about the United States of America.
John Kerry. The Ugly American
Though he plays a deep left field, William Arkin, the uglier American, doesn't quite see eye to eye with Kerry on this. He doesn't accept that soldiering is a dead-end job for those who couldn't figure out how to flip hamburgers. He shows us that soldiers have it pretty damn good:
It wasn't unpredictable, to anybody but Arkin, that he would get some negative reaction to saying that we're pampering these thugs we call the US Military - while they are busy protecting our Asses, of which Arkin is prime example.
Here is his response to criticism of this troop bashing. The title is The Arrogant and Intolerant Speak Out. Probably, Arkin knows the meaning of neither adjective. Conclusively, he possesses minimal self-awareness.
