Pass the Hat to Support Our Troops!

Well, it appears that corporate welfare doesn't include our troops, who must participate in conservative-supported free-market economics. But every servicemember seriously in debt becomes a security risk and loses his clearance. That means he's not deployable overseas.

Meanwhile, Congress has taken forever to clean up payday loans (much longer than Internet-based offshort gambling by consenting adults).

So, what has Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness said about this? Nothing, of course.

What can real Americans do to help? Give to the military charity of your choice, or just go ahead and directly assist any servicemember pay off debts or stay out of debt.

Hi everyone,

There's a right-wing blowhard at "Fmragtops Spews" (whatever that means) who has issued a challenge to "trolls" at becuase several of us have been questioning their courage for the past week.

Basically, the Fmragtops Spews dork wants to know why supporters of the war should be asked to actually serve in the war.

It's stupid shit, I know, and they'll probably never answer but drop on by and leave a comment, if you want.
