I’d love to stick Stephen King’s fat elitist ass in, say, an F-18 fighter jet and let him try to learn to fly it over Iran, North Korea, or Syria.
From the Famous liberal-left Obama supporters are über elitists—and quite possibly insane file. Or the How to purposely deplete troop morale during a war file:
In actual fact most soldiers are of course avid readers. Military recruits test above the national average in reading and vocabulary skills. A huge percentage of the military are high school graduates—a percentage which if I’m not mistaken is exceptionally high for any “industry” group or segment. For example, I imagine a huge percentage of Democrats are high school drop-outs. Or are high as a general matter.
Stephen King was using his position as a celebrity to sink troop morale—which is evil in and of itself—and to publicly proclaim his disgust for the notion of fighting to defend the security and interests of his own nation. Don’t buy or read any of his books.
I’m pretty sure rule number one about sitting in the pilot’s seat of an F-18 is that you can’t have a fat elitist ass. And with all the jet’s techno-marvels spewing information at you on heads-up displays so fast that a speed-reader would have trouble digesting it, there’s nary a split second to blow reading trash scary novels—not that there’s anything scarier on the face of the Earth than being in control of one of the most technologically advanced multi-million-dollar fighter jets laced with weaponry.
Just file it under “ass”.
