81. Principles before party
There are thousands and thousands out there with similar stories, and there's no excuse for it.

I have no problem empathizing with this man's story.

I'm fortunate enough to be employed in a field that is secure and which pays enough that I'm able to provide a house and utilities for our unemployed son, who like many is experiencing an attack of economically-induced patriotism and will be joining the Army for the "opportunities" it will provide for him to take care of our pregnant daughter-in-law.

And I still remember what it was like when I was a student, my wife waited tables, and my young family was without medical insurance. Our son needed stitches, the the cost of the doctor kept protein sources other than peanut butter off of our family menu for a month.
