2. Ticker tape is the stuff....
..they use when you get a scratch or cut on your heart. They use ticker tape to hold it together while it heals.

Just a guess.

4. Whatever it is, it obviously has sexual relations:
thus its title "fucking ticker tape." ;-)

But, a tad more seriously, it can still be called a ticker-tape parade, even though confetti is thrown from windows, which was likely largely true even when there still was ticker tape.

5. Support the troops?
Why, I thought that the RepubliCONS had a corner on that market. After all as their demigod Bush said "your either with us, or,or, your a traitor" ............RIGHT???

But come to think of it, I haven't heard a single word from these nit-wit DUH-BA-YUH supporters about supporting the troops since President Obama took the oath of office. They must have stopped singing that song because the current President has ended the war in Iraq, killed Bin Ladin, taken out most of his top leaders, and stopped most of the pirates working out of Somalia.

As a retired Naval Officer, I will always support the troops.

6. That's right. The silence is deafening
the only support the troops get from ANY of these sorry politicians is when the troops are doing what they order.
