    If The New York Times can quote the nominee of a major party word for word bragging about grabbing women by the woohoo, Lemont can quote Patton calling a soldier a poor dumb b@5t@rd.

    It would be tough to get the same flavor out of just Grawlixing the single curse word in Patton’s quote.

    Why don’t guys just let the women sort out the problems? Never saw much sense in killing to make a point.

    I still refer to the # as a pound sign myself (sometime a number sign), but apparently to everyone below the age of 40 it’s a hashtag.

    Today’s useless trivia department: Do you know that the AP Style Guide still tells its users to spell out “percent” instead of using “%”? (That’s kind of like saying “Always spell out ‘dollar’ instead of using ‘$’.”) But do you know why? It’s because, a century ago, TeleType machines didn’t have a “%” symbol, and the Associated Press wanted to make sure no knowledge was lost in transmission over its wire service.

    And so progress marches on, sometimes slowly and fitfully, sometimes not at all.

    Pretty sure Patton’s typist never had a “Saturn” on her keyboard. :)

    My dad lucked into a logistics job in the Army in WWII that had to be performed by an officer. Bang, temporary commission. He got to know a lot of RA officers. The consensus on Patton was that he was a great tactician but he was willing to suffer much greater losses than other generals.

    Patton had a good point.

    Language clean up isn’t a big deal when you are talking life/death matters.

    We wish we could avoid kill-or-be-killed situations. Everybody has a line they will risk death to avoid passing. Many deaths could be avoided if all knew where the lines lie.

    The speech was given before 3rd Army 2 days before the D-Day invasion. To say the movie version is mild is an understatement. The actual speech would likely earn a R rating even today. Patton was arguably the most profane general office in US history.

    “When I want my men to remember something important, to really make it stick, I give it to them double dirty. It may not sound nice to some bunch of little old ladies at an afternoon tea party, but it helps my soldiers to remember. You can’t run an army without profanity; and it has to be eloquent profanity. An army without profanity couldn’t fight it’s way out of a piss-soaked paper bag.”

    For the full text of the actual speech he gave before the invasion follow the link below and scroll down to Part 2.
