Yah see my point? THis article has been posted for five (5) days. Nobody asked addressed any questions to this Vet? Because nobody really gives a crap. Well, they give a crap if it makes them feel good.Like if they fill a shoe box with Dollar General soap and body spray, they feel good so that's really all that matters. I would rather spend my time asking this other commenter WTF a whole? Wanna fight about it?

Or would you rather here me talk about the endless hours spent elbow deep in a huge vat filled with trichloroetheyle (dry cleaning fluid) while using a wire brush to clean grease off of a half mile of wire rope? Oh yeah and no rubber gloves, eye protection or protection from the toxic fumes. See, nobody wants to talk about that. And when I develop Parkinson's, nobody will say Hey, was that guy a Vet?

Bully? The bullies in this country live and work in Washington DC. Democrats that force Americans to buy something they do not want. Those are bullies. I'll talk about some of the things I did while in the military.I'll talk about missing birthdays, weddings, hugs, school plays. I'll talk about working around the clock for days at a time. I'll talk about no hot showers for days at a time, wearing the same clothes for weeks at a time. I'll talk about being at sea for months at time. I'll talk about seven out of ten years spent deployed. I'll talk about my military years with anyone. Fact is, nobody really wants to hear and nobody really cares. How about if Americans get as mad about the way the VA operates as they are about living with Obama's HealthCare Law? Lets talk about that!

Not to disparge Vets-- But to state that the rest of the world is scarred stiff is a way of saying that someone is a "Bully"
