Overnight Open Thread - Ermey Edition

So How Does R. Lee Ermey Occupy Himself During Flights

Well like this.

R. Lee isn't afraid of anything - even learning how to knit in public. And before you snicker - just remember that he knows at least 8 different ways to kill you with the yarn and needles alone.

And what the hell does "If it shortdicks every cannibal in the Congo" From Full Metal Jacket actually mean?
And genghis points out that the movie Full Metal Jacket was actually based on the novel, "The Short-timers", by Gustav Hasford based on his experiences in Vietnam.

Dennis Prager: Why Is Class Hatred Morally Superior to Race Hatred?
These days it's the worst of all sins to hate someone for their race, but yet it's perfectly acceptable to hate them for what they have.

Being on the left means that you divide the world between rich and poor much more than you divide it between good and evil. For the leftist, the existence of rich and poor inequality is what constitutes evil. More than tyranny, inequality disturbs the left, including the non-Communist left. That is why so many on the left fell in love with Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and, at other times, with every left-wing dictator. Non-leftists see these men as thugs; much of the left sees them as fighters for equality. Yes, leftist dictators extinguish freedom and steal land and businesses from the rich -- but none of this disturbs most of the left.
And don't forget that more people were killed in the 20th century for being of the wrong class than were killed because of their race.
