It was not immediately known how much the department would have to pay under the order or how many veterans would be affected. (Yahoo)

Follow the leader even if he is a low life scumsucker. After personally being victimized and harrassed for my beliefs, I know that friendly fire would have taken me down if I had been “over there”.
This travesty of everything that is right in our world must be corrected and those who are guilty must pay the price. Amazing how one air charter company charged a 50 percent surcharge on their freight and it was charged by the kilo; 2.2 pounds. Skull and Bones is alive and well making money from evil in every way they can.
Pat Tillman was a true hero who was exercising freedom of speech; anyone remember that phrase?
Pray for peace on earth, Dan Williams
