Got to tell you today wounded made my day
I made my rounds today going to Hines VA Hospital bring some five dollar ca teen books to the wounded. When I walk in they are in song WAR WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR . That was ok but when they told me they all just voted . I ask what party did you guys vote for. To the man load and clear Democrat WOW that made this old vets day. Hey Bush troops don't like you very much.

9. I guess they didn't think cutting veterans' benefits further was supporting them.
Let alone sending soldiers into a war the administration lied to start, sending too few to do the job right and under supplying them, thus creating even more wounded vets to split the now less than too little money allocated to help veterans...and on and on, if you follow me. It's hard to lie to the person you're ass raping for long about the fact that you're ass raping them.

18. Good news!! Made my day, too!
Btw, docs at Hines saved my dad's life. If not for Hines, I wouldn't be here today. So, kind of a special place to me.

22. Last night on Letterman, when the O'Reilly segment ended, Paul Schaffer
went out playing "War, what is it good for? ABSO-FUCKIN-LUTLEY NOTHIN!"

Then, when they returned from the commercial break, Paul was still playin "War"!!!

Plus, Dave shorted O'Reilly with about a ten-minute segment...leaving twenty minutes for an actor named Altman.

The wheels are coming off the whole Bush agenda and all its supporters.
