Long, multiple deployments are alarming Army leaders

Leaders are alarmed? LEADERS? The grunts are a bit more than ALARMED, they are dying and being blown up. Suicides and felony crimes are way up. Homelessness and severe mental problems are way up. Learning to walk with one or NO legs, half a face, missing an arm, or any NUMBER of "multiple deployment results". LEADERS ARE ALARMED? This shit has been going on for 4 or 5 YEARS. FUC THOSE "LEADERS"!

Well put, sir. It makes me terribly depressed to think about how these guys and girls are being abused. But that doesn't mean I stop thinking about it. And especially when I see most people go about their business as if they didn't know about the mental health issues and the outrageous suicide rates, and of course the "news" is liable for covering their eyes. But, as odd as it may sound, it makes me hopeful when I see people like yourself get mad at this insanity.

And maybe hopeful isn't exactly the right word.

Thanks bc...really.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
