If you've never served in the military, here's a short lesson on how to get through unscathed:
- Try not to piss off people who outrank you.
- Almost always, the higher the rank of the person you piss off the worse it is for you.
- But even the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is afraid of pissing off a salty Master Chief or a crusty old Sergeant Major.
Republicans should be even more scared now...which will be tough. I hear that some of them are already so frightened of terrorists that ragged groups of "Bush '04" tee-shirted rightwingers have been seen wandering the streets looking for people to whom they can surrender their civil rights.
