"Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." (Mark Twain)
When the ratbastards in charge give us a bunch of guff about "not supporting the troops," they're talking out of their ass
. For while I don't have a yellow ribbon magnet on the back of my car, it never would have occurred to me to bill Robert Loria several hundred dollars for the gear he lost when he got blowed up (memo to Mr. Loria: You should have told them that their missing helmet was with your arm, and if they find one of those things they're sure to find the other), or to dun Tyson Johnson, 24, of Prichard, Ala., for the $2700 signing bonus he forfeited by getting wounded before his commitment was up, or to send bill collectors after Ryan Kelly, who left his leg in Iraq, for failure to return "erroneous" pay.
Of course, the DoD blames computer problems. Weasels.
