Well, nobody will be shiatting in their pants after eating it. Or shiatting anywhere for a few days.

Is this some Q anon plot to send these soldiers into food comas?

Does their job not provide food?

Why do you hate them so much?
 
2021-01-15 12:23:38 PM  
Don't get me wrong, this is awesome and all. But first no cots, and now no food? Who the hell is in charge of these Capitol-protection operations?

Save on flour, just fill the cardboard box with shredded cheese and top with tomato sauce.  Zap that sucker in the oven enough to melt the cheese.  Same effect.  Bon appetite!

I guess you've never eaten army rations or MRE's.
 
2021-01-15 12:25:27 PM  
Sorry to be repetitive, but seriously WTF. Why are we constantly feeling heartwarmed by deeply upsetting stories about people not having the supplies they should be given? I mean, I guess I don't mind buying a pizza, and I do appreciate they're there. But shouldn't kraft services be a thing there already?
 
2021-01-15 12:25:42 PM  
Lets see how they do with keeping the white terrorists from fu*king shiat up first before we start sucking their dicks.
If they show the same amount of enthusiasm as they did cracking the skulls of peaceful BLM protestors then ill be impressed.

Sounds like a plan from Super Trump half ass all the wrong way!
 
2021-01-15 12:27:11 PM  
That's nice of them and all but FTA...

Both Waltz and Hartzler voted not to impeach President Donald Trump on Wednesday.

After you deliver the pizzas, kindly go fark yourselves.

I have, plenty, and they arent terrible. I take them camping.
Theyre as good as a cheap TV dinner.
 
2021-01-15 12:27:47 PM  
our local democrat group has been doing this for the hospital here locally for a year.

Gotten to the point were we just toss $ in the bucket, and let them order food from whomever delivers.
Because packing a lunch to work in a hot zone isn't fun.

I must be the be the odd man out, because with a few notable exceptions, I liked the MREs. Especially Pork Chow  Mein in the dark brown bag. Comes with crispy noodles and Tabasco. Was awesome.

Yes, of course food is provided.  Now, I want you to think REAL HARD about what you may have heard about army chow and why these soldiers might appreciate a farking pizza.

2021-01-15 12:28:38 PM  
For some reason, I was thinking about all those people sleeping on the floor and probably not enjoying the thought of fighting their fellow citizens. I thought that if I was there, I'd make them some chocolate chip cookies.

But I'm not there.

they really don't want us to suck each other's dicks at all, I'm beginning to think .

Did they get any Hawaiian?  Because pineapple on pizza is delicious.

Apparently they have a place to sleep (not the Capitol floor): https://www.usnews.com/news/na​tional-news/articles/2021-01-13/dc-gua​rd-troops-sleeping-at-us-capitol-resti​ng-not-lodged-there

Good post, thanks Subby. I donated a couple bucks.

Also, "We the Pizza" is an awesome business name.

MREs, sure yeah.  However the whole point of this is to provide the options as a gesture of gratitude.

...especially the poor saps stuck with the veggie omelet MRE.  *shudder*
 
2021-01-15 12:29:31 PM  
The amount of money we throw at defense in this country, and we can't afford to give them some decent food while they're literally defending the center of our government?
 
2021-01-15 12:29:47 PM  
Forget pizzas... Send those guys some cots! They are trying to sleep on marble floors!

I'm sure they've been issues rations, and while modern MREs aren't haute cuisine they're far from terrible and provide plenty of nutrition. However, if a grateful public wants to send them some comfort food as a bit of appreciation that's fine too. I know that my brother always enjoyed the cookies we sent him even though he had full mess hall on base.

I usually preferred the ones that could be eaten cold like Beef Stew.  The warmer was a pain in the ass, and usually where I was we couldn't use them anyway due to being a fire hazard.

Just yesterday I saw a statement from the guard that for safety and logistical reasons they were unable to accept any kinds of donations/care packages but not to worry because the guardsmen were provided with everything they need. What changed?

Random Anonymous Blackmail: Wait, now Fark is pro armed forces?


We've always been pro armed forces, Democrats just don't want them to be killed in needless wag the dog wars that don't involve actually defending the country or our allies. That's actually more pro-troops than the hawkish view of let's kill off a few thousand young men and break a few tens of thousands for oil company profits.

I was in the Army in the late 80's. The frank and beans MRE?  I wouldn't wish on our enemies.

But yeah the other MRE's work in a pinch. When one is hungry enough...

Yeah, unlike you right wing types, we see them as people, while you only see them as disposable tools of war and use them, and discard them when they are no longer useful and deny them healthcarre and housing while shoveling billons of dollars to the military industrial complex.

Was the national guard involved in violence against the BLM protesters?  I remember shots of them defending the Lincoln Memorial, but I don't remember any violence. As you said, the protests were peaceful.

I wish the MRE people would stop trying to be creative.  Somehow I think it makes rations worse.
 
2021-01-15 12:34:51 PM  
I have nothing against these young soldiers personally but... not only are we already paying for their food, but isn't this kind of weird hero-worship one of the reasons we're in this mess in the first place?
 
2021-01-15 12:35:10 PM  
Ok, can we send them a note with the pizza?

"Thank you for helping defend our Democratic-Republic from a bunch of treasonous shiatweasels."
 
2021-01-15 12:35:13 PM  
After 9/11 I had pizza delivered to the U.S. Marines operating a radar site atop the Deer Valley Ski area at the Olympics!  (I previously taught a friend's son to row Class V whitewater and to flip boats back upright, and a few years later he was flying Marine 1)
