I made the mistake of commenting on something on The New York Times site.
Being published by the Grey Lady (the paper's age-old sobriquet) — for a writer — is a big deal. Unfortunately, I'm somewhat jaded in that I published there when I was a rookie writer, so the mystique was kinda' lost on me. Admittedly it looked good on my queries, but (this is freelance writing bullshit ... bear with me).
I made the mistake of commenting on an article written by someone who I think I used to debate and lecture with (he was anti-war, I was "pro" war [if there is such a thing]) back in the early 70s. We got along fine back then.
I mentioned in a "comment" that I knew the author.
Then some arrogant, self righteous elitist made some silly comment about about how proud he was for having been an anti-war protestor.
When I went back to respond, the subject was closed. (You can do that when your the mouthpiece of all that is liberal, glowing and unreal in the world.)
What I wanted to say to that little asshole and all the anti-war protestors of the Viet Nam era is this:
Since you are sooooo proud of what you did, please ALSO be soooo proud of supporting a genocide.
You chose to support those who literally committed genocide on the mountain tribesmen and the South Vietnamese army personnel. Of course, you only have to deal with abstract, not reality. I understand that. BUT ...you ARE responsible for a Nazi-like genocide. That's a fact.
I went back in 1994. I saw what YOU and your actions did.
Please sleep with that when you're feeling righteous.

PS: It's time to go Kent State on all these KKK-chickenshit masked protestors.
The exam tests reading, math and science knowledge.
The results? American schoolkids saw an 11-point drop in math and flatline scores for reading and science, Fox News is reporting.
For the first time, Obama’s America fell below the average set by the OECD and failed to crack the top ten in any of the categories.
As it stands now, according to the results, thanks to Barack Obama and his failed education policies, children in the Slovak Republic are better in math than Americans are.
