Can't build a TV set or a VCR worth a fuck. Got no steel industry left. Can't educate our young people. Can't get health care to our old people. But we can '''bomb the shit out of your country, all right!'''''"

->I couldn't talk the captain [of the ''USS Mobile Bay''] into firing a missile for me, but he showed me a videotape of a test firing ... Even in slow motion there was nothing slow about the missile launching. The flip lid whips open, and for a moment you see a bald top of something emerging in light and smoke, a high burlesque of a jack-in-the-box; then the ship's deck is covered by a tower of blast and dazzle blanketing one bright, rising, white, fiery column -- hell's own hard-on.

->''Over there, over there,\\
Send the word, send the word over there\\
That the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming\\
The drums rum-tumming everywhere.\\
So prepare, say a prayer,\\
Send the word, send the word to beware -\\
We'll be over, we're coming over,\\
And we won't come back till it's over, over there.''
-->--"Over There", UsefulNotes/WorldWarI song
