    We need to show more sympathy for these people.
    • They travel miles in the heat.
    • They risk their lives crossing a border.
    • They don't get paid enough wages.
    • They do jobs that others won't do or are afraid to do.
    • They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak a different language.
    • They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day every day.
    I'm not talking about illegal Mexicans;
    I'm talking about our troops!
    Doesn't it seem strange that many Democrats and Republicans are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegals, but don't support our troops and are now threatening to defund them?

    Please pass this on; this is worth the short time it takes to read it.
    I concur!

      I'll go with that. Lets start with doing away with the VA budget cuts. You know, that fine group of people that take care of the troops once they are wounded and can no long serve.

        The idea isn't new but why don't we take ALL the politicians, lobbyist and members of PAC and but them in uniform and send then to Iraq for just ONE tour, 15 months, Army style.
        They surely won't be missed in DC, other than the Government might start functioning. After their little taste of reality give them their old jobs back.
        I wonder how many would have a different POV?

            Nice idea, but as soon as somebody suggested it you would see the fasted law in the world passed saying that uniform service is illegal for serving members of Congress. The vote wouldn't be unanimous, but it would be very close.
            Those that forget history are condemed to repeat it.
            If you're going to be one you might as well be a BIG RED ONE

              We don't even have to go that far. Just send them to Hoenfels or Grafenwohr in November. NTC is real nice in August...
              If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

                    There was a documentary about this very thing last week. Appalling treatment and it's no better over here. There's a systematic narrowing of the spectrum of symptoms associated with post traumatic stress disorder which had been physiologically proven to be brain damage caused by an overload of 'fear chemicals' for the want of a better word. This damage is irreversible. My father suffered PTSD. In the end, he drank himself to death.
                    We're happy enough to send them off to risk their lives for all kinds of reasons. Then we sweep them under the rug when they can't get back to 'normal' lives.

                          Of course it wouldn't be unanimous, we could never get all those self serving parasites to show up at the same time.

                            I think after the first round hits they might be in need of a change and not just perfume.

                              Amen! The troops deserve our support, there and at home. The same penny-pinching collections of dung-swallowers who send them in harms way won't pay to correct the damage they do to those who must obey!

                              Support for the government, different question.
