You donâ€™t believe me when I say America hates their veterans? Well tell my why this phrase even exists in our vernacular: â€œhomeless vet.â€ On any given in night in this nation 200,000 or so veterans wander the streets, homeless. And as many as 400,000 veterans find themselves homeless at one point or another during any given year. Perhaps those stupid meaningless yellow ribbons on trees and doors across our nation that currently stand for worthless empty words of support can indicate something meaningful like â€œRoom available for a veteran!â€
I have said this time and time again, it is outrageous enough that in a nation where the glutton of personal wealth in the hands of the few can only be described as obscene while we live in a nation with human beings who have no place to live. But for a nation that treats war as if it is the greatest ting America has to offer to the world, to turn their back on the very people they use to fight these vile and primitive social activities known as wars is unacceptable any way you look at it. Many of the seven deadly sins, like gluttony and greed, have found a home with the rich in our nation. Unfortunately our veterans have not been so lucky.
Talk all you want about supporting the troops but there is one, and only one demographic in our nation that supports the troops or at least genuinely has the troopsâ€™ best interest at heart: liberals! Face it is those bleeding heart liberals who want the government to take a greater responsibility for the people in our nation who can not provide for themselves and have been fighting for better treatment of our veterans. They also try more than any other group to prevent the creation of war veteransâ€¦especially when it is not necessary and based on lies piled on lies!
When certain politicians speak of increased war funding they are not addressing the needs of the troops. They are addressing the needs and insatiable thirst for money of the military industrial complex. Take a good close look at George W. Bushâ€™s defense policy board and his entire administration. You will find board members of military contractors. You will find countless people who in one way or another are connected to war profiteers. What you will not find are many wounded grunts, experienced combatants or former military hospital workers. And you sure as hell wonâ€™t find sincere advocates for veterans.
There is simply no excuse for how we treat our veterans. There is even less of an excuse for how we have created many of these veterans. But letâ€™s be real, the only people in this nation who should be responsible for taking care of veterans are the people who create war, especially the wars that did not need to be fought. It is high time they start taking care of the people who did the dirty work and fixing one military hospital hardly begins to address the issues.Â Â Â Think about it!
