Happy Veterans Day
Happy Veterans Day to my dad and all the other men and women who have served in the Armed Forces.
Veterans day tidbit: the current 110th Congress less than 25% of its members who are veterans, the lowest number since WWII. The end of the draft is partly responsible for this fact.
Another veterans day tidbit: Larry Craig, the heterosexual senator from Idaho is an Army veteran. He served in the Army Reserves where it was his duty was to visit high schools and impress upon swarthy young high school students the exciting opportunities awaiting them in the army. He was discharged due to a medical problem with his, I kid you not, feet. Others say it is because it was discovered that he was gay. Which we know is not true because the senator is not now, nor has he ever been, gay.
Update: Another tidbit: Mitch McConnell was an army man for 10 whole days before being discharged. The rumor is that he fondled a privates privates. Of course, McConnell is not gay anymore than he-men Craig or Lindsay Graham for that matter, so one simply must be amazed at the length to which republicans will go to get themselves excused from service in time of war.
