What the fark, Superman? You could end this all by yourself right now and you're out hawking war bonds? Fly into Berlin, pick up Hitler, throw him into the sun. What an ass.

Blocking our ability to skip the bill on our wars is a threat to national security.

Unlike bankrupting us and leaving extremely vulnerable to our creditors and economic instability...that's patriotism.

I think they should set up a war fund that we can pay into.....lots of them with their own 800 number and we get to pick and choose who we want to go to war with.....and if the war fund for...let's say, New Zealand, has the most money in it....that is the war we fight.

We must immediately invade and occupy Iraq for 10 years

Crowd: USA!, USA!, USA!

There will be a simultaneous 10% increase in tax rate

Crowd: Can't we all just get along? Have all possible opportunities for negotiation been investigated? Is this war necessary?

Those are.clearly Japanazi super villains masquerading as all American heroes. Those masks can't hide it. They are duping us into paying for gay socialism.

Are you kidding me? It took you guys years to nut-up & fight in the last few world wars! It'll take decades for the next one if you have to find wiggle-room on your credit card.

Aarontology: PanicMan: Absolutely. So many people talk about supporting the troops but don't actually do it.

Yup. Now "supporting the troops" has been reduced to meaningless car magnets and rah rah rah-ing.


My college's young republicans tred to show their support for the troops by putting a yellow ribbon magnet on MY car once. When I objected to them attempting to screw up my paint job they asked me why I wasn't patriotic. It was quite fun to ask them WTF they though the uniforms and gear sitting in the car, visible through the untinted glass, were for.

War has become the ultimate reality TV series for the American public. Therefore it should be financed with advertising dollars.

MFL: I'll go along with this, if we do the same thing for entitlements.


You're right, we should have a separate tax, just for Social Security. That way, we could see exactly what Social Security is costing us printed on every paycheck. That's a great idea and it's a terrible shame that's not already exactly what we do.

To be fair, I don't think Superman in 1940s had all the powers he has now. He didn't gain his powers till everyone bought war bonds.

/you thought he got his powers from the sun, did you?

Don't forget this gem.

Whoops.

We're so cute when our nationalism is laced with racism.


If you're ever in New Orleans, you should check out the WW2 Museum. Their collection of racist propaganda posters is awesome. Especially the "how to tell a chinaman from a jap" one.

It's in the toes, you see because they wear different sandals. Also, the japanese have treacherous dispositions.
