We have always supported the U.S. troops. Currently, we support them via the Yellow Ribbon Support Group. If anyone gives a crap-and-a-half about
people risking their lives overseas, say so here, and I'll post the link how you can help contribute to their wish list. They aren't asking for
DVD players, they're asking for Gold Bond Foot Powder, and deoderant, and lip balm and lotion.
Most of these folks don't want to be where they are. I don't want them to be where they are, I want them home. Should we throw them away and say
that's the deal they bargained for, so we don't care about you?
I'm not a rich man; I live a chosen minimalist lifestyle with my Bride. We are happy and want for nothing, particularly compared to those folks
around the globe that pray for shoes, or their next meal. Most of my U.S. friends (it seems to me) are against troops being overseas anywhere.
Fine, but they are THERE. Does anyone think that being against the Bush administration can be translated to ignoring the people who are fighting
overseas? I can afford $50.00 every couple of months, and I KNOW it warms the hearts of the human beings that are doing the job. I've been in the
suck. I know how it feels. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
I await a response. Jesus Christ, this really pisses me off, some of the responses. I now back myself down, take a deep breath, go outside and
gaze at the sunset, and pray for their safety.
