    Clearly, the name of the effort is the most important component of same.

    I do not recall making that claim. Try again.

    Does this change the name of my GWOT Expeditionary Medal?
    Yes, it is now called the "Thanks for doing some really good **** for your country" medal.

    It seems your focus here is on the retardedness of the name.

    We all understand what it means. Focusing on the retardedness of the name is, well, retarded.

    So calling out stupidity when I see it is stupid? Flawless logic.

    You're calling out stupidity for the sake of stupidity. Like pointing at grass and calling it green, there's no point to it.

    Sure there was. My point is that the name was ridiculous and I am glad it has been changed to something a bit more appropriate. It is quite unfortunate that nothing else will change besides the name.

    What if you are teaching a child what colors are? Or are trying to explain the color to someone who is color-blind?


    There's no doubt that there are some people in this world who are "stupid-blind".
