The Horror of Illiteracy...and Irrelevancy....

A
MOMENT
OF
TRUTH

COMMENTARY
BY
STEPHEN KING

(once entertaining horror author)


Hello folks.

I should thank the MoxArgon Group and their "Token Earthling" Vox Poplar for letting me talk on their blog, but since they locked me in this contraption they call the Stainless Steel Tube of Truth, I really don't feel like it.

It's kind of cramped in here, it smells like feet, and I can't lie, spin, or otherwise fiddle with the truth.

I hate that.

Well, I've been getting a lot of flack for saying that the US Army was a haven for illiterates, thereby insulting the people who are fighting to defend the culture that made me rich and famous.

And while I will never admit it outside this tube I really do deserve that flack.

Damn, what the hell was I thinking when I said that the most technologically advanced military in the history of the planet was somehow the only career path left to the illiterate.

I guess I was making up for what I lost.

I really couldn't afford to be a leftist hippie back in the 60s. I was horrendously poor and had to work my ass off just to stay in school and stay fed. I just didn't have the time or the money like Bill Ayers and his Weather buddies.

But now I'm rich, famous, and the man behind Maximum Overdrive, and the last working class person I had any real contact with was the guy who ran me over a few years ago.

That means that I am now the perfect liberal.

So as a perfect liberal, I have to make broad and usually insulting declarations about the men and women in our military.

If I don't, I'll get a table next to the bathroom at the next Obama fund-raiser.

I can't have that, I'm Stephen-fucking-King.

Now can I get out of this tube?

Funny, I read a number of his books when I was deployed.

Typical rich liberal. Guess his name goes off my "must read" list.
