Doug recently emailed me something going around:


* Pee on a Crucifix, you’re an “Artist”

* Pee on The American Flag, you’re a “Constitutionalist”

* Pee on a Police Car, you’re a “Freedom Lovin’ 99 percenter”

* Pee on a Taliban piece of shit that just tried to kill you and your fellow Marines, you’re a “Villain”

* Sure is a F***ed-up administration we have running this great country!!!!!
