This is such an obscure little thing in the whole of the massive mess that is the government. What sick, sadistic, hateful, spiteful mind identified this humanitarian benefit, given in respect of soldiers who have given their lives and left loved ones behind, to be taken away?
Who? What evil bastard found this shameful despicable sinful thing to do? We know who authorized it OBASTARD authorized it.
Obastard is purging the flag ranks of anyone who is not a toady and will not do as he demands. Same thing Stalin did and the same reason coups are led by Colonels.
I hope he just keeps pushing. We deserve it as long as we will put up with it.
The only thing I see coming out of this is the uniting of the largest voting block in the us ... the veteran (and current military). Nothing unites veterans of diverse political beliefs than to be under attack ... part of our nature and training.
