Dear Soldiers - Thank you.

Thank you to all the veterans out there who sacrificed time with their families, higher paying jobs than what the military paid, blood, sweat, tears, restful nights, peaceful dreams, comfort, an easy lifestyle, and too many other things to count...for the job of protecting us...of protecting everyone. You stood and stand for all that is good and right in this country, doing your duty without complaint.

You have done a good job, and you do us proud by standing for us.

We have not...and cannot...earn the gifts you've given us or the sacrifices you've made for us and so many others. They are beyond price and their value is without description. It's not just freedom that you've given us, but the things that naturally come with it. Family barbecues, the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, the national parks, and millions of other tiny things that aren't specifically thought of every day, but enjoyed by all of us nonetheless.

Without you, billions of people would be under the thumb of dictators. Because of you, billions of people know hope and joy every day.

It is today that I say thank you for that. I know it's not enough, but nothing ever would be.

Thus Spake Cedarford

Says Cedarford in a comment on Vox Day's blog:

Feminists love the castration fantasy. An acquaintance was dating one at the time when Fox was the Laci Peterson Channel, and she was raging about castrating OJ, Scott Peterson and how she would love to do it personally.

I tried out an alternate fantasy. "Sounds OK, but for fairness do you have any objections to me taking a knife to kid-killers Susan Smith or Andrea Yates?"

She shut up and looked at me surprised.

"You, know, multilate them. Just their faces - 10, 20 strokes with a razor blade cutting them down to the bone - so they can't eat, or smile ever again - or evershow their faces...?"

The feminist got white-faced."That is the sickest, evilest thing I ever heard. You disgust me. And you are one stupid asshole if you think Andrea Yates was a murderer. She had post-partum depression and if Susan Smith was the one that drowned her kids in a pond she had real issues - like being abused as a child."

I nodded.

"You might be right about Andrea Yates. How about if we just cut her tits off as punishment?"When a feminist loses it, they toss drinks at you in lieu of having a castrating knife handy. Fortunately, it was white wine and didn't stain. My acquaintance was sensible enough to refrain from laughing and commiserated with her as she stormed out saying I was indeed a monstrous asshole....but only to get the pussy. He broke up with her a month later and said she was still bullshit on me equating castration punishment with face mutilation...the breakup was simply because she was stupid and boring....

Somehow, this woman thinks that it's OK for women to castrate men, throw drinks on them, or otherwise do violence to them when they're upset with them. Somehow, this same woman thinks that it's NOT all right for men to do the same thing to women.

This is the core of what is commonly known as feminism. Women want the right to hit, belittle, mentally abuse, and otherwise do violence to men, while not being subjected to the same indignities. Somehow this is viewed as fairness. They don't even subscribe to the fiction of equality of outcome. They want to be better than men in every way. It is because of that, that these ridiculous chauvinistic cretins will never have any credibility with anyone with a shred of sense.
