I realize it's veterans day and I honor those who served. But do we really honor the living vets by taking away promised benefits by way of the VA? They are now trying to privatize it for profit. We don't have enough resources as it is, and now we're going to allow corporations to make a profit from it? How dumb is that?
Why must we continue to make more veterans by entering into constant wars that we have no business doing?
We glorify war, like it's no big deal. The new Army ad is " do you have what it takes to be a WARRIOR?".
The Wounded WARRIOR Project.
We take young men who have less education, who have never really learned about life yet, and turn them into killers, yet do less than we should when they return all screwed up with lost limbs, traumatic brain injuries, PTSD. Then we make them police officers and wonder why they kill innocents. Can you not see the correlation?
We are going in the wrong direction and we are doing it for greed. To hell with the collateral damage, we want more wealth.
Just my opinion, but do think about it. You're paying the bill!
Peace be with you.
