That's a great question. They speak Pashto and Dari in Afghanistan, not Arabic. It might have something to do with Afghans not being Arabs.
So if you buy utter bullshit as cold hard facts, the conspiracy actually goes even deeper.
Whenever anyone who is in or retired from federal employment complains about the federal government, please for the love of FSM don't leave that information out. Harry Riley retired as a Colonel in 1992 after 34 years. That means he gets $90000 a year and he doesn't even have to get out of bed in the morning. And he's been earning roughly the equivalent of that (adjusted for inflation/cost-of-living) for 22 years. Which means that, in today's dollars, the federal government has paid him approximately 2 million dollars, not including benefits like medical care, heavily subsidized food, and spave available air travel, over two decades. And that's before you start counting things like Medicare and Social Security. And oh yes, he gets that too. All of it, every single penny, is paid for by the taxes he's spends his days bitching about.
So Harry Riley, like all other self-proclaimed small government originalists welfare queen shitbags, has only discovered how little the government's done for him after gobbling up more federal benefits than the vast, vast majority of hardworking Americans can even contemplate.
It reminds me of a poem I wrote, called Ironic:
An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn't it ironic
Don't you think?
Oh wait, that actually did happen because W. is a stupid shitbag. Well, water under the bridge and stop blaming the last guy, etc.
