1. Best of the best

If there's blame, let's put it where it belongs - with the members of the Legislature who have refused to invest in higher education, including that of children whose fathers and mothers have given so much for us.

These veterans have made sacrifices for our country that many of us wouldn't even consider. Many return home with devastating and permanent medical disabilities. And they often return home with invisible wounds, changed forever by their experiences. Too many don't come home at all.

Their children have sacrificed, as well, often changing schools due to deployment.

These brave men and women do not deserve to be called a burden - and neither do their children.

2. The local VAMC is chalk-full of burdens

They line the hallways, fill waiting areas and damn it, take all the good parking spaces.

Many times when I show up for my appointment, I find that the parking lot at the Spinal Cord Injury Unit is full. But usually a space opens and I'm able to park. Then I push my wheelchair into the unit with furious anger. So many fucking burdens!

Next time I'm there I'll have to get on the P.A. and tell those no-good slackers to stop being burdens. Really. Suck it up and get with the Republican program!
