Bob Belvedere:I pray for the people of Haiti and I thank the Lord God that they have us. Can you imagine how much wore it would be for them were we not here to look after them?
The next time some Baby-Booming, navel-gazing, Bolshe hippie starts on their favorite rant, running down the U.S. Armed Forces, I would recommend you take Ghettoputer’s advice:
By now, you’ve certainly heard about the earthquake in Haiti. Truly a horrible tragedy. Millions of people affected, perhaps hundreds of thousands dead. Haiti on a good day is a hellhole. After this tragedy, it’s worse. No food, no water, no sewer, no hospitals, no shelter. Add to that no functioning government and bodies stacked on the street like cordwood in 90 degree heat, and you’ve got the makings of a nightmare.
So what’s President Obama’s first order of business? Call up the International Red Cross? The United Nations? Oxfam? Amnesty International? The SEIU? Nope. Send in the military.
What does this mean for Haiti? It means that America, on its own dime, while fighting two wars and in the middle of the Great Recession, is going to once again bail out Haiti. Our soldiers and Marines will risk their lives in abhorrent conditions to protect Haitian civilians. Our ships will provide free first-world medical care, clean water, electricity and food to thousands and ask nothing in return. And how can America do this?
America can do this, because despite the protest of dirty, nasty hippies, and the continued efforts of liberal Congresspeople to defund the military, we have the biggest, baddest military on the planet.

What would they do without us?
They don't like us. You can define "them" however you please. Europeans, Middle Easterners, whatever. They didn't like us before George Bush, they don't like us despite the Messiah Barack Obama, and they aren't going to like us ten, twenty years from now. But what the hell would they do without us? Who is it that comes to their aid and rescue? Us. Who sends them food when they are hungry and medicine when they are sick? Us. Who sends their sons and daughters to foreign shores to fight and die for their freedom? Us. They are not our equals and they certainly are not our friends. They will never be our betters. They do squat for us yet we stand by them and lift them up. We owe them nothing but we give them everything. We are the United States of America. The greatest country in the world populated by the greatest people. We are kind, generous and brave. What would they do without us?
