    on this subject we agree Dawg. I donate to "The New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans" The very fact that there is a place for homeless veterans is a disgrace

    We have one of the largest homeless populations in the country here and 35% of them are post 9/11 Vets.

    http://voiceofsandiego.org/2010/08/25/why-so-many-homeless-vets-in-san-diego/

    Because of good weather and a high cost of living, San Diego has a lot of homeless people. There are 8,500 homeless people in the county and 35 percent of them (3,000) are veterans. The relatively high proportion of veterans among San Diego’s homeless is probably due to our proximity to military bases.
    Nationwide, 20-25 percent of the homeless are veterans. As a group, we know these are high school graduates with significant training, who once lived disciplined lives that included regular paychecks.

    Anyone who has been to war for the USA should never pay anymore taxes, it would be the least we could do for these heros that put their life on the line for us, I'm sure notmybro would agree.:troops:

    True. But when we have all these reggies on welfare and a veterans homeless we have shit priorities. Then again most veterans would rather be homeless than take any welfare from the govt.
    A noble but ridiculous frame of mind.

    I love how this government is all for funding wars all over the world but don't want to spend a dime when it comes to helping veterans here in the US. Buying bombs... yup, buying a veteran a meal... nope! Fuckin BS!!! :pissed:

    It's time that all Americans stand up for our men and women in the armed forces.

    it starts with that bitch they put in charge. she was a fuck up who they moved to phoenix.

    this is what government often does with fuck ups. just move them somewhere else , or allow them to quit instead of being fired, so they just move over to another similar job with no bad marks against them. it's a disease of beerocrats watching out for each other.

    i don't like mccain but he'll dig into this like a pitbull. should be fun.

    RIP guys.

    Please dont let this thread get derailed into "Thanks Obama" since this problem is as old as America (or at least the Civil War)... and, yeah, as old as the first "elite" send the first "schlub" off to die for him.
