Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.

Rich Chickenhawks

Word. Damn right. I don't care how you slice it, the simple fact is this: the richer you get, the more likely you are to a) vote Republican b) support war c) have nothing to do with the military. Rich, powerful asses get us into these messes and who's left to clean it up? Working class stiffs. And what to they get for their sacrifice? Their benefits cut by the same assheads who sent them to fight in the first place.

I've said it before and I'll say it once more, if you support the continuation of the war and are in full awareness that the current fighting force is undermanned, you must enlist. You can support the invasion of Granada all day long without ever going to the recruiters office. Your country's got it pretty covered. But this nonsense in Iraq is a different story. WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MEN. Period.

This blog is based on a true story.
