The “War on” Meme is Going to Drive Me Insane!

Dear Main Stream Media:  I realize that you have never found an issue that you can’t beat right into the ground until we are so sick of it we are going to puke (SARS, Swine Flue, West Nile Virus, etc. etc.).  I also realize that you love nothing better than scaring the living daylights out of every possible citizen.  I have one request, will you stop making light of the brutality and inhumanity of war by calling every possible issue a war on something.  Yeah, you know what I’m talking about.  The war on women, the war on men, the war on Christmas, the war on terror, the war on poverty, the war on drugs, war on Palestinian children, the war on deflation, the war on Aids, the war on the nation’s economy, the war on entitlements, the war on poaching, Obama’s war on transparency, the war on coal, and the war on cancer.  Needless to say, I could go on.  Thank you so much for trivializing every issue (including war itself) by calling it a “war on.”

[Interesting side note:  My iPhone does NOT autocorrect the word "Sinday" to "Sunday."  This is obviously Apple's "war on Sunday!"  I'm calling MSNBC and Fox News!]

  1. Bird flu, Y2K, flesh eating bacteria, Craigslist killers, meningitis outbreaks and the fiscal cliff.

  2. Dude! I can’t believe I forgot about the Y2K hysteria. This is nothing but superstition run rampant in the “modern scientific” age.
