I Do Not Need This Shit, Part One

By this time next week, I may not be associated with either Operation Gratitude, the GOP or the American Legion.

Apparently people I thought were my friends decided to launch a backstabbing campaign against me while I was frivolously back home burying my mother.  Evidently my participation in Rule 5 does not meet their high moral standards, so they've been contacting all the above organizations to complain about me.   They've been throwing around words like pornography, and pervert.  One of them even appears to be claiming to speak officially for the American Legion.

I'm waiting for the commander of my American Legion post to return to town next week, to address the Legion-related issues with him, but you all know Mark Twain's quote to the effect that "a lie can run halfway around the world while the truth is getting its boots on."  Every time I've held off on doing something about these people, something even worse has turned up.

I'll tell you one thing, though.  Before I go, I'm going to make some people stars.


IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER:  None of this trouble originates with Operation Gratitude, which remains an honestly-run, incredibly cost-effective, nonpartisan charity that does outstanding work for the troops overseas.  I strongly recommend Operation Gratitude to anyone looking to do something for the troops, no matter my personal relations with the organization or how this shakes out.

Ignorant pukes just show up everywhere, don't they? From the 'best' churches and schools on down to the neighborhood watch.

Take care, m'Friend. Keeping you at the top of my prayer list.

Richard, it seems that they are just douchebags.

Piss on 'em.

You have our support.

Thanks guys. Unfortunately, from the standpoint of my future involvement in the GOP, the damage was already done the moment they made the pornography assertion. So all I can really do now is go for payback.

Lots of payback.

Pr0nography? You? For Rule 5 vids? Some people have led too sheltered lives, if they think that is Pr0n. I second the description of them as douchebags.

This situation has been extremely hurtful and distressing because it involves people that I care very much about, most notably Richard. The chief instigator was someone whom I thought was a friend. The allegations were presented to me with laughter, and I dismissed them. This happened during a conversation when I had called this person to ask for prayers for Richard's mother who was in the ICU. Never did I imagine that this would develop into a full fledged attack.

I leave it to Richard to post updates, but let me just say that this will shortly be resolved and we have no fear. Thank you all for your continuing support! You are true friends.

If your Rule 5 postings are too much what do they think of WWII pin-ups? Or Theo's totty?

Retread

I imagine Theo's totty would make their heads and/or other extremities pop like a cheap Chinese prophylactic...
