No Free Lunch

Most patients at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington have a lot on their minds: the war they just fought, the injuries they came home with, the future that lies ahead. The last thing a wounded soldier needs to worry about is where the next meal is coming from. But for hundreds of Walter Reed patients, that's a real concern. Starting this month, the Army has started making some wounded soldiers pay for the food they eat at the hospital.
Every time I think the Bush Cabal cannot sink any lower, they do. The mystery is why I think there is a limit to their depravity.

How about this? "In an interview with the Wall Street Journal (1-25-05), Pentagon official David Chu, in a mockery of the contribution of veterans, defended a new round of cuts by ironically describing funding for programs like veterans' education and job training, health care, pensions, VA housing and the like as "hurtful" to national security."

And now Bush is asking Congress for another $80,000,000,000 -- bringing the total spent on the invasion to $280 billion. ... Really, how the hell do they expect the Army to afford meals for wounded vets on that kind of chump change? ... And the number of dead Americans has topped 1,420.

Peeance (and freeance) is on the march!
