We Support Our Veterans — NOT!!

If you’re a soldier fighting in Iraq, BYOB doesn’t refer to a booze party. It means Bring Your Own Bullets. The Defense Department is supposed to reimburse soldiers for the money they’ve had to spend buying their own protective gear, medical supplies, armor for their Humvees and global positioning devices. This reimbursement hasn’t happened yet.

Under a law passed last year, the Pentagon had until February 25th to come up with a reimbursement plan. Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.), who sponsored the bill, said “very simply, this is either negligence on their part, because they were not happy with this when it passed, or it’s incompetence. It’s pretty outrageous when you have all their rhetoric about how much we care about our people in uniform.”

In addition, of course, veterans’ benefits are about to be reduced as part of the 2006 budget now before Congress. And the bankruptcy bill that just passed has deleted all protections for soldiers and veterans. Lost your job while you were fighting overseas? Tough shit, Deadbeat. Quit whining and pay up!

Behind all the patriotic slogans and chestbeating, our “leaders” have been stabbing our soldiers in the back. Again.

It is rapidly becoming impossible to rationalize just exactly WHAT we are doing for our armed forces other than set them up to be killed, either physically, financially or emotionally. What is this, some kind of Godfather Nation? Bless me and shoot me. Sheesh.

I guess, if you buy a stupid sticker for your car, that means you're supporting the troops; any further effort on your part is completely unnecessary.

Wake up America. We're walking further and further down a very bad path.

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog. Nice to know there's another "moonbat" in town. :-)

Thanks for the comments you guys. We moonbats and other non-gullible citizens have to stay awake and keep an eye on these maniacs.

Pretty bad news for those of us who are Reservists and Guardsmen in the military. Thankfully, I'll make as much, if not more money with the military than I do at my civilian job but I'm deploying with quite a few who are facing financial ruin. I cannot believe they passed that bankruptcy bill!

We're the moonbats?!

What about the people who are so proud of their stupid magnets on their monster SUV's, who voted for Mr. Moron and Co.? Hrmph!

Seriously, though.. One of my personal goals is to make sure everyone I speak with knows that it's just -not- cool to be ignorant and/or *accepting* of ignorance.

Thanks Chandra. You've got to wonder about those people with a flag decal on their gas-guzzling SUV. Nobody ever solved anything with a bumpersticker, especially when their everyday actions contradict the slogan they're displaying.

I'm sorry.. Did anyone else hear that?

Sounds like.. someone trolling around, almost like a Canadian troll.

I guess it was my imagination. No one could possibly have so little to do with his life that he has to revert to personal name-calling to fill the void.

If it was a troll I heard, maybe when it grows up and learns some manners, it'll learn that name-calling only makes him look like a childish ass.

I am curious about the term "moonbat. Like "liberal," it seems to be migrating from "tree-hugging hippie" to "despicable America-hating morons who didn't have the sense to vote for My Beloved Leader, Bush."

BTW, Chandra, you're pretty cute.

I think I heard that mysterious trolling sound too; wasn't sure what it was.

I don't know where the term "moonbat" came from, but there must be some unwritten rule among the thousands of rightwing bloggerdrones that they have to say "moonbat" at least eight times on every post. They're so addicted to it by now, they wouldn't be able to express themselves without it.
