Ex-Special Forces serviceman Matthew Griffin was back in Afghanistan, on one of many trips to the nation he fell in love with while fighting there from 2003 to 2006, seeking for a way to help a people he remembered as unusually generous.

Fair enough… I’m happy for him and all, but I find it funny that this venture is getting as much press as it is. I’m not stupid enough to believe that EVERYONE in Afghanistan hates Americans and is out to kill American troops, because that is simply not the case. That said, convincing Americans that we should somehow feel obligated to help these people by purchasing a $65 – $75 flip flop is ridiculous and I can’t believe people are falling for it.
There is no mention of any money being donated back to the Afghan people on the website, so I am assuming that this “support” just comes from creating jobs for them and paying their wages. Without knowing the exact answer, I’d put money on the guess that labor in Afghanistan is incredibly cheap, so you can throw out the justification for a $65 – $75 priced flip flop out the window regarding that. Container shipping is very cheap also, so don’t try and tell me getting them to the USA costs a lot. Someone is making a killing here, and I’m betting it’s not the Afghan people who are making these things. There are lots of companies in the US that could be making this exact flip flop, the only difference is that it would mean less profit for Combat Flip Flops.
Maybe I should start getting all my products made in China and claim that I’m “supporting the Chinese who died building our railroads, and who were annihilated in WWII”. Would that work? :P Call me an insensitive douchebag if you want, but I really don’t see the difference.
If your fall flip flop fund is up around the $75 range, and you’re looking to support workers in a foreign country then head over to the Combat Flip Flops website and buy something.
Wow, Funny Or Die really pushed the envelope on this one. haha
I hope anti-gunners see the video and agree with it, and then realize that it’s making fun of them, and the proceed to reflect on their life choices and possibly even change their views. :P

An Arizona filmmaker trying to prove a point about police response time was arrested this week after making an amateur film in which a character dressed as a “terrorist” paraded through the busy streets of Phoenix wielding a fake rocket propelled grenade launcher.
Full Story – NY Daily News
We already know that police response time is generally shitty, so this retarded little stunt was uncalled for. It’s amazing that someone would do this, and not be worried about getting shot.
haha well YouTube user “Anon Filmmaker” (Michael D. Turley), isn’t anon any longer and on top of that he was charged with “creating a false impression of a terrorist act” and “endangerment contributing to the delinquency of a minor”
Calling this guy a “filmmaker” is doing a disservice to actual filmmakers out there. I bet he thinks this is going to make him famous and get him work.

LOL at the Craigslist ad. I won’t spoil what happens at the end of that skit, but I’m sure you’ll recognize the person.
hahah Chaos, I knew I would see the Deagle make an appearance in the video sooner or later!
Holy that drag portion of the video was frightening and epic all at the same time. haha those accents too…
Two soldiers, joined by a third man, were drinking alcohol and watching football at the time of the Sunday night incident, authorities said.
“The victim had the hiccups. The suspect (Pfc. Patrick Edward Myers, 27) pulled out a gun to scare him in order to stop the hiccups” and shot the victim (Pfc. Isaac Lawrence Young, 22) in the face killing him.

Tragic. Another reminder not to hang around stupid people, even if they are a friend of a friend.
I bet Patrick will be affectionately known as “Hiccups” in prison.
