You know what's really fucked up? They just approved a 3.6% raise to SS and VA disability recipients. Amazing assed shit. They are giving out more money they don't have when they should be fucking cutting.
And yes, my shit just went up 3.6%. I will be using my raise to buy a seed bank. haha
Even people in my little town have their heads buried in the sand. I go to a meeting once a month for VFW/Crimestoppers. They do them together since some of the same people are involved in both orgs.
One of the VFW topics for discussion, was how important lobbyists are for the veteran cause. Sure they are important, but no more important than the other lobbyists.
