    Getting them out of Afghanistan should be second only to getting everyone out of the middle east period. Seems like a long long time ago on a different forum I had wondered what the concept would be when the total number of war dead equaled or exceeded the number of dead in the WTC.

    Since that time it has doubled more or less the WTC toll .. but those are the one's that are no longer suffering. For every one killed over there, ten or more are coming home with severe physical or mental problems which has a ripple effect on all others.

    Ton's of money is being solicited for the Wounded Warrior's .. which the government owes the greatest debt to but apparently is not stepping up to the plate.

    100 million dollars spent on vacations for Obama and family .. much less the trillion or so needlessly spent on so much pork .. could have gone a long way toward fixing that. But then I regress by even thinking that the government would spend any money wisely.

    Thanks again, grumpygy.

    If it is not a local service member, there is no reporting on the number of our men and women who continue to be sacrificed to the folly that is Afganistan.
    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.

    The size of this list is bothersome.[V][xx(]
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain
