The international slut

April 18, 2010

I’ve got something to ask the guys. Do you remember the girl in High School who seemed to throw herself at any guy willing to give her a lingering glance? Perhaps there were guys who acted the same way, but I, naturally, wouldn’t have noticed them. These were the girls that were soo desperately in need of affection they would do quite literally anything for a moment of feeling special and ‘loved.’ Personally I was such an unattractive geek in High School, I never gained even their affections, so I never dated one. But we all knew who they were.

In short, they were the girls who everybody knew ‘put out,’ and not just for one steady guy… they would get passed between a group of friends like the latest cassette tape.

Some onlookers gazed down their holier-than-thou noses at them; others used them for everything they could. And others looked upon them with sadness and pity. We knew they were only starving for affection… no matter in what form that affection came. They just wanted to be loved.

Most were eventually slapped in the face by reality when, at some point, they realized the guys who were bedding them on a regular basis didn’t really care about them… they were just getting off. They were using them. This realization had to be profoundly devastating on an emotional level. Akin to thinking you have a million bucks in the bank, only to wake up and realize you’re a few million dollars in debt. Betrayed, violated, abused, used. Can you imagine what it would be like; how humiliating and degrading it would be when realization and reality finally kicked in?

Well, you better think about it! Right now, the United States is exactly that girl, spreading her legs just to be loved by the likes of Hugo Chavez, Acmdinijad, and Vladimir Putin! Barack Obama has such a deep need to be loved, he will throw away any thought of American Exceptionalism, our ‘unfair’ capitalist system, and our military and scientific dominance just to gain the affections of the world. He is willing to be a slut and a whore just so Kim Jung Il will give him a kind word or two.

And like those poor lost girls in High School, we’re gunna’ get screwed. If you asked any of those girls what they were getting out of the arrangement, they would have been hard pressed to come up with a tangible benefit to their relationship. In fact, they were fulfilling their need to be loved, only not realizing the ‘love’ they were receiving had nothing to do with care, concern, or compassion.

Obama’s bowing and cow-towing to the world’s despots hasn’t gained us one more batallion of help in Afghanistan, or any more assistance in Iraq. None of the countries we are cozying up to have taken a single Gitmo detainee off of our hands, and no one is forgiving our debts as we forgave the debts of the Marshall Plan. OPEC hasn’t lowered the price of a barrel of oil, and no one is jumping to lower interest rates on our loans. So what have we gotten from the Almighty Cairo speech, or the Extended Apology Tour?

The world “loves” us more than they did when Bush was in office. Well, I remember those girls in High School thought they were “loved” too… in fact, all they were in reality, were individuals willing to be used. Like them, we’re f****** in so many ways!
