I’m not one of Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children (USMC), in fact, I’m far from it. Although that won’t stop my reckless cooperation to endorse and support Mad Dog for President of the United States of America. I’ve posted a few pro-Mad Dog articles at SOFREP. Yes, I’m also one of those people; who else would post all the A-10s, foreign forces, and Ukrainian front stuff? It’s curated – so don’t get too supportive, keep those torches lit.

Albeit, I stumbled upon an email from Mad Dog to a young Marine, who emailed him on the merits of reading. The email, of course, should have remained private, but the Marine got squirrelly way back in 2013; it’s already been out here for three years. The full email is below, but I’m going to highlight a few key points throughout my article/rant.

Ultimately, a real understanding of history means that we face NOTHING new under the sun. – General Mattis

Yeah, yeah, yeah I know General James Mattis for President is not happening. It’s only that I’m presented with a reoccurring and simple problem. In that, I am continuously provided with what has best been presented by South Park.

The ultimate choice between a giant douche and a turd sandwich. Realistically, the General would not win – despite the fact that we would be presented with someone who we could believe in and would do right. Albeit, as a student of marketing, rhetoric, and politics I know that the cash behind the campaigns of the wicked witch and captain crazy would assassinate the General with bogus media charades and diversion tactics faster than a stack of dynamite tied tight around your waste in the belly of a volcano. Hey, it’s not my fault most people overreact to headlines, fail to fully read an article, or bothers to research anything independently.

For all the “4th Generation of War” intellectuals running around today saying that the nature of war has fundamentally changed, the tactics are wholly new, etc, I must respectfully say … “Not really” – General Mattis

Yet here we are in our sound-byte culture. Great work everyone, I’m so damned happy to be part of a democratic process based on unchallenged deception marketing; thanks! Everyone should wake up tomorrow and make sure to take a portion of a sentence out of context, over-react, and then make sure that you take it subjectively about yourself. I’m sure some talking head with an agenda will generally communicate in a way that will personally incite you. After all, the whole world revolves around you, just like mommy told you. That’s right; you’re special . . . More like special in the head.
