Who cares?

Good morning, Netizens...

Who cares?

Bob Kirkpatrick raises the ogre of life upwards toward our collective eyes, from the perspective of a Veteran and then asks quietly, "Who cares?" Perhaps a trip to the Deludia Annex is mandated. You are rounding a curve in the road, and up ahead there is a road sign that says, "You are entering the Deludia Annex", and in a most-introspective moments you realize you have lost track of a generation of warriors and heroes, all of whom have fallen on very hard times indeed courtesy of the Veteran's Administration. They are laying collectively in the roadside debris and excrement of life, gasping and pleading that the promises once made to them by our own benevolent Uncle Sam be kept. A quick reality trip to will not give you warm-fuzzy feelings. However, it raises one man's question, one that mandates an answer.

Who cares if one more soldier burns alive with Agent Orange disease while the VA bureaucracy is fiddling?

Do you?
