AMERICAN IS THE GREATEST!!!1!

When I’m feeling bad*, worried about every little thing, then I stop, log on to the IMDB message boards, and this is what I sing:

Relax! Enjoy yourself! It’s only a beautiful dream!

Oh, it's all so wonderful. Read, read, readers, and you will now the answers to:

- Whether or not it is an insult to call Marines ‘soldiers’ instead of, say, ‘Teufelhunden’
- Whether or not Marine snipers are deadlier than, say, SAS or Navy SEALS
- Whether or not America is awesome
- Whether or not you should waste your money on an un-American piece of crap
- The question of why, exactly, so many ex-Marines spend their time posting angry messages about a movie they haven’t seen on an internet message board

Big Bill Burroughs is dead, but our is still a country of cop-lovers and soldier-sniffers. And God bless us every one.

*: Like, for example, because I’ve been too busy to finish another Profiles In Bullshit entry. The next one will be good, though, I promise, because it’s about Stormin’ Norman Podhoretz, the only man I know of to write an entire book about how all of his smart friends hate him.
