Semper Fido Bitches

Semper FidelisCOLO. SPRINGS– Tough crowd at this week’s antiwar bannering: the usual plentiful honks of support, but now intermittent servicemen heckling in crew-cutted indignation. And we haven’t yet inaugurated our WARMONGERS GO TO HELL banner. The best the driver of a white van-load of them could muster was “Semper Fi” so they must have been Marines because they shout it like it means “America! Fuck Yeah!” Are they taught it’s abbreviated Latin for Always Faithful? I believe Fidelis is the root of Fido.

Makes sense, doesn’t it? Man’s faithful companion, the original boot-licker.

Faithful to what honestly? Not the Constitution, or law, liberty or the will of the American People. The US military boot-licking dogs pledge an oath to big oil and the rest of the corporate monied interests. Semper Bitches.

Another soldier-driver asked me with smug arrogance, where was my sign that read “Support the Troops?” Huh? I don’t support the troops. Does he support baby killers, rapists, torturers, drone-pilot-cowards and snipers? WTF. We parted calling each other names. Hippie. Blimp-neck enabler. Dirty hippie. Moron.

Do the other branches of the Defense Department resent the Marines because they don’t have their own pithy Latin je-ne-sais-quoi –literally– to represent their own mistaken-self identity? The Navy and Air Force already have a Native American name, he-who-shoots-from-cover. US Army GIs can modify the USM slogan: Semper Fuckers.

One thought on “Semper Fido Bitches

  1. “Hey, GI, they’re screwing YOU too!”
    “you had a good home
    but you left
    Your Right!
    Your recruiter lied to you
    but you Left
    Your Right!”

    If they ask, mention that the, meaning folks like our good ol’ Semper Fi Congresscritter Doug Lamborn, signed on to a radical cutback in CHAMPVA and other veterans benefits, 15% … for now…

    Cutting back on the funding but increasing the demand.

    But they’ll get out and shout loud Hosannas for TeaTards like Lamborn. Because, you see, he “Supports the Troops”.

    That 15% is off existing CHAMPVA benefits. No telling what kind of extremist horse shit they’re going to pull next year.

    Suggestions: Pictures of Lamborn and Palin, “They say they support the troops”
    in medium letters, and
    “But cut 15% from your Widows!”

    I’m trying to think of some way to make it short enough to read but give enough information for them to check out later.

    The “your Right” bit is grammatically correct, it’s not You Are but indeed, the possessive. It’s to teach you to walk uniformly, in rhythm and everybody stepping on the right or left foot at the same time. Left comes first because you start off with your left foot.
    Same as with boxing or other martial arts, you don’t put your right foot forward to start.

    The Persians, the Greeks and then the Romans did it march forward left foot forward left (shield) arm up, Right foot thrust with sword under shield…

    Long before the Chair Force made it where you mouse click human blips on your computer screen into oblivion.
