A very old football warm up exercise created by former Apopka High School football coach Morton "Bull" Grit. It is essentially a set of squats but spelling 'Darter" in between every rep. What's funny about this is that the letters are made from the body. So if you want an exercise that really gets around, try doing some Darter Downs. You will love it! They are so fun you'll be Dartin' through the mud.
Bull: Hey Bryant, you feel like some exercise? How about a round of Darter Downs?
Bryant: Darter Downs? I don't know what you're talking about.
Bull: (growling) Sure you do. We've done these hundreds of times. Remember, you squat and spell 'Darter'? You know, you use your body to spell it. Remember how fun they are? Come on, let's do a set!
Amos: Darter Downs? I'll bet you Laotian Kips you can't do 50 of them. (saluting) Ten HUT!
Bryant: You're on, you big brig! If only Grandma Marty could see this. (Bull and Bryant start doing Darter Downs) D-A-R-T-E-R. Grrrrrr!
Bull: (laughing at Bryant) He better pay up! He lost. You know, I was once stationed in Ventiane, the capital of Laos.
Bryant: (starts doing another Darter Down) Wow! These are so much fun. From Vero Beach to Ventiane, the Darter Down's got it going on.
Bull: High wing! These rock!
Amos: You've sold me. Here's your Kips.
A huge fecal bolus accompanied by voluminous quantities of flatus.
The product which results from a steady diet of right-wing propaganda e.g. I dumped a Rush Limbaugh after listening to the Republican candidates debate.
Former liberals in the 1960's who were disillusioned about how the 'Great Society' looked like, therefore questioned their beliefs and eventually shifted to the right. Hence, new conservatives.more...
Neocons are fine with budget deficits for just wars that could last for a generation long, but not social programmes which they see as futile. It is important to note that the wars and Iraq and Afghanistan actually cost less than any two military interventions during any time of the Cold War period. (adjusted for inflation)
These have-been liberals still share the same Utopian ends as most people across the political spectrum would. They have a blend of left and right wing world view, proponents of low income tax, free trade; also liberal democracies and all kinds of universal ideals, can be just as liberal as traditional liberals (as they really were liberals) over many social issues theoretically too (LGBT rights, drugs, abortion rights, etc......), except for an excessive welfare state.
What makes them hugely unpopular is their use of questionable, if not Draconian means to achieve those ideal ends, which is why the neocons have been heavily criticised, even hated by both people from the left and to the right. i.e, They are supporters of controversal projects like any unilateral military interventions overthrowing dictators, Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp, PATRIOT Act..... They see these as 'necessary evils' to eradicate homeland security threat and suffering of humanity.
