  •  When i was in (none)
    basic training i recieved a mail demanding i pay my college loans. Being in basic training, getting 5 hours of sleep a night longterm and spending my days being screamed at and doing intense pt i had other things on my mind. So i stuck it in a drawer and went to bed. I had to be awake in five hours to run a few miles, do two hours of exercise then eat breakfast and start the day. Of course they defaulted the loan. I had no idea at the time that they couldnt legally do that but by the time i learned my credit was ruined. Something i still pay for.

    So while i trained to fight a war aimed at protecting and spreading capitalism the world over.. the capitalists were busy screwing me.

    Gotta love Capitalism.

    •  Wonder what the break down is between (none)
      the guard and reserves vs. shall we say -  the regular military.

      Some of this is really a matter of these folks making so little that it is difficult to make ends meet.

    •  What's da problem? (4.00)
      Only one my bruddah!

      The Democrats didn't do this to ya! As YOU imply in your message "The Democratic party needs to adopt its own moral and values principles (clawed)"

      And, if Democrats actually had a say in it, there would be no war today!

      Because, besides being true and faithful as all U.S. Marines are. Democrats are diplomats, they know when talk is in this country's best interest and they have enough intelligence to know what to say.

      •  yes, who did they vote for? (none)
        what did they think would happen? that Bush would take care of them? this is how you take care in the Republican party.
      •  If you didnt notice (none)
        the post was aimed squarely at the rampant theo-capitalism (aka quasifascism) that governs america today. And that both parties march in lockstep to the drumbeat of.

        And btw... Democrats lined up just as readily as republicans to vote for Bush's oil war.
