I want to talk about our veterans. I want to talk about your son or daughter or your grandchild or your nieces or nephews. I want to talk about your friend’s child or the kid that cut your grass. I want to talk about our soldiers who returned from war without an arm or leg or with war trauma or beaten bodies or scarred for life.

I want to talk about these citizens that represented you and protected you and who are now forgotten by two-faced hypocrites that sit in elective office. You probably missed it but in late February the senate rejected a bill to fund our heroes. The bill was for $21 billion dollars to assist our wounded and needy vets. One of the biggest issues of this bill was where was the money coming from to pay for it.


Ask these same people to show you the budget for Afghanistan or the numerous places they sent our kids into harms’ way without a budget. I bet a large part of our deficit is for unfunded war. These loud-mouth, anti-veteran lawmakers will find the money for their pet projects then can’t find the money for our veterans. These flag-waving lawmakers who support war making would rather forget those who did the fighting. In fact, coming back dead may have better benefits than a live veteran.


Call, write, email or visit that fraud who has no problems sending them to war but finds any justification not to support them when they come home. Don’t be conned when they say they are doing this for America. These double-crossers do not to care, but God help us when our soldiers and veterans decide the same! Maybe it is time for our elected officials to prioritize their morale imperatives.
