18. I've done that, but I give hem no quarter and don't back down
Two months ago I'm paying my rent on my storage cubical at Public storage (when you lost a house and move into an apartment, there is stuff you just can't fit). A physically disabled vet IN A WHEEL CHAIR was arguing with a chicken hawk about health care and the chicken hawk was spewing all of the Reich-wing talking points. When I got done with Booshe's abandoning the vets, Walter Reed Hospital, how McSame and Booshe opposed the GI Bill, and also about the prescription benefits rape of Medicare, he was cursing to beat the band. My final comment was Fuck you, walk a mile it THAT man's shoes before you criticize the pittance he requires to live.
I was truly hoping he would have made a move.

The wheelchair vet and I have become friends.

Fuck those morans.
