The Democrats understand Marines

"The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!" Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt

There is more from Sgt Grit

Ah, for the good old days. When those who put their life on the line for the freedom of all, were at least recognized. The current demo's should get a clue.

Though I don't understand the "cleanest body" part (after 47 days in the bush, I was not clean, course R&R was another matter), filthy mind and high morale, you betcha. No morals, uh-huh. Lean, mean, fighting machines.

I try to hate as little as possible, not a good emotion. But I really can not understand those on the left who denigrate the military, whom they mock as illiterate, choice-less, victims to naive patriotism. Those who serve so that their sorry asses can do as they do.

"F**k em all, save six for pall -bearer's".

Sorry, that's a "Mailer" quote from the 'Naked and the Dead.' But one of my fave's.

Why did you bring this up M. Simon?

Luther McLeod said...

Yeah, sorry, I've been drinking. Not that sober would be much different.

Would still like an answer to my question though, M. Simon. :-)

M. Simon said...

I'm a Navy man.

I like Marines.

I thought the quote was "cute".

Glad you liked it.

I'm moving so I will be off line for a few days.
