3. I have very mixed feelings about buying phone cards for the troops.
I think it's so wrong to pad the profits of the telecom companies by appealing to people's sympathies for the troops in Iraq.

I'd rather spend my money trying to build up a movement to require that the government uses its baragaining power to buy cheap minutes for the troops to call home which they provide for free to the troops.
