My niece, whose husband is a veteran like myself, told me something that is a very sad commentary on how the officials of this country think anymore. I mean, beyond the duel quagmires and the pisspoor care at VA hospitals, that is.
It seems that the new head of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, stated that all veterans are "domestic terrorists"! Now that is gratitude for you, serve x amount of years wearing the uniform of uniform of your country and you're called a "terrorist"?
So, Janet Napolitano, why don't you just shut up, do your job (which is apparently helping FEMA so they won't look TOO incompetent or whatever it is you have to do with swine flu), and stop trashing people who at least served their country, which is more than you and too many others in Washington have done!
Then, yesterday, there was a big kiss ass column in the Courier-Journal, where now Janet Napolitano wants the government to employ 50.000 of these "domestic terrorists"! Frankly, as a veteran, I'd rather immigrate to another country as work for a government such as this. We "domestic terrrorists" have our pride you know!
