RIP R. Lee Ermey

Seemed appropriate.

Lee's roles in war movies simply reinforces Trump's (there privileged ilk) that 5 deferments or how ever many it takes.
Yet, wanting the power of Commander In Chief.

Sort of like, Peace-nik Ted Nugent packing his pants full of excrement to fight the draft. to modern day Ted who engages in unprotected anal sex with his rifle, now.

He missed out on the war experience and now projects his imaginary Rambo to all that will applaud him for it.

When I was in basic training I occasionally wondered if the DIs were ripping R. Lee off or the many similarities had a common ancestor.

When I was in boot camp, not in the US Army but the IDF, my commander, a woman, was less like the stereotypical drill sergeant that Ermy played in Full Metal Jacket, and more like Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. I'm not sure which one is worse.
