    Need I remind you that NO BILL passes without bi partisan votes. This bill you disapprove of was “With none of the drama and conflict of recent budget battles, lawmakers approved the measure 359-67. The Democratic-led Senate plans to vote final approval later this week.”

    Only three Democrats – Reps. Rush Holt (D-NJ), Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), and Mike McIntyre (D-NC) – voted against it, while 64 Republicans did the same.

    The Senate voted 72-26 for the measure, All 53 Democrats, two independents and 17 Republicans voted for the bill. The 26 votes against it were all cast by Republicans

    So I must assume that YOU are mad at the DEMOCRATS for this bill passage and the cutting of veterans benefits.

    Too many are too quick to use the military and too slow to pay the price. Wars are fought on deficits. Participation is shared unequally. Bush didn’t include costs in the main budget or have it show up in the deficit. Time to man up – if you’re going to use it, pay for it!

    There is an old German movie, “Der Hauptmann von Köpenik”. It has one scene where people apply for jobs, standing in line, and are asked “Have you served?”. They reply with yes, and where they did, and are hired, without fail

    -

    Maybe it’s just a movie. Maybe it’s just Germany. But why do veterans in the U.S. have such difficulties finding jobs, housing, a way back into life and society?

    -

    France, besides Germany, also doesn’t have that problem. Or Italy, Spain, Japan. I’m not sure about China and Russia, but I still would say it’s unique to the U.S., and that irks me. You are supposed to be the clever ones, landing on the moon and all that, so SOLVE THIS PROBLEM!!!

    Something about serving in the military that ill prepares some for civilian life. Is it possible that many of the homeless would have had difficulty even if they had not served? The marginal ones believed the clap trap about wars of aggression being about fighting “to keep us free,” then were disillusioned when they found out otherwise and were not hailed as returning heroes.

    Gee, according to the Bloviator In Chief at FOX News, there are no homeless vets. And even if there are, well, it’s their fault they can’t make it.

    Do you ever post anything accurate?

    January of 2008. Just google “O’Reilly homeless veterans”
    .
    More to the point is that conservatives tend to view the homeless as a non-issue, or that it’s their fault.

    You lose.

    BTW, I just watched the O’Reilly Factor. What’s John Edwards doing tonight?
