Before now poetry has taken notice
Of wars, and what are wars but politics
Transformed from chronic to acute and bloody?
from "Build Soil"

So Much For My Pleasant Demeanor:

Have a Purple Heart?

The government might be sending you a bill

Next up: billing for expended ammunition?

(Hat tip: Jules Crittenden.
I'd heard about this before, but refrained from posting because it seemed to be a lot of rumor and little substance. The American Legion meeting gives it a lot more weight)


  1. Sick. Just, sick. "Serve our country and then pay for your own damn injuries, you've served your purpose." Sick...

  2. I am so ashamed of what is happening TD, My post today is about soldiers paying for their care, I thought we were getting another Jimmy Carter, I wish it was that good.

    I hope you do not mind I am going to copy and paste your post on mube.

    Forgive me. I'm just a girl, and a civilian at that. As a taxpayer,I'm paying the VA for your treatment. As a contributer to a private health insurance company, I would be paying for your treatment. I am honored to help defray the costs of the treatment of any of our veterns.

    The primary concern is coverage, correct?

    Does that help?

  4. I'm hoping congress figures out this is a bad BAD idea

  5. Nice post! Keep up the great work!!


  6. Try to not let the bastards get you down; as 'tis written: "this too shall pass"...
