Wrabbit2000 you have a point there...... it's hard to 'un-say' something, and once something is percieved as 'useable' it will take a long time to die
Quote "Wow.. Obama has problems when 'He ate a dog' becomes a common refrain on the lips of the average person. Kinda like the swift boat or the Dean
scream...'Read my lips..' and other notables. "I'm not a crook" comes to mind. It's amazing what little things people have stick with them to become
synonymous with the person."
You know, it's a funny thing with the 'dog' thing. When I was in Vietnam as a soldier in 1970, we (our platoon and helicopters) were on a firebase. In
the distance was a Arvin firebase, which are South Vietnamese Army Soldiers. Anyway, my friends and I saw an Arvin in the distance coax a dog over to
where he was. He got the dog and collared it with a small cord and then cut the dogs throat. We were a little mystified seeing this, my fellow
soldiers and I. But we dismissed it, as this kind of thing was not often seen and it was at a great distance away, probably 3-4 hundred yards. In fact
then the Arvin picked the dog up by the legs and put it in a basket on the front of the bicycle he was riding and rode back to the entrance of his
base. Done deal, out of mind........... Later that day a woman came by selling Chinese Cokes and Frenchbread sandwiches with meat and letucelike
greeniage. We got three or four between us all, and though the bread had ants in it, we ate it, you couldn't get too picky in the bush. One of my
fellow soldier asked if I had ever ate dog? and I said hell no!!!..... He said "think again" and it then dawned on me........ So eating dog is not as
bizarre as one you'd be lead to believe. Though I much prefer goat, dog and goat are similar. But 'NO' I havent at it since....
