Vets backstabbed by corporate oligarchy

The Veterans of Foreign Wars has issued a "call to action" to its 2 million members, according to this article, asking them to plead with Congress to spare military and veterans benefits as a bipartisan committee looks to trim $1.2 trillion from the federal budget.

Why soldiers have to beg their own government to keep its promises is another story. One that begins and ends with its apparent takeover in a bloodless coup d'etat by business leaders with a legal obligation to maximize profits. These business interests are raiding the federal treasury every chance they get and creating regulations that help the few and hurt the many, while dodging their fair share of taxes.

The painful truth is that military service is about as pure an example of socialist activity as you're going to find anywhere in the U.S. - soldiers literally put their individual needs second to those of the mchairsany. They risk their lives for the greater good, not for the money they may never get to spend.

That heroic attitude is diametrically opposed to the "greed is good" mantra of savage capitalists like the Koch Brothers, who are strictly out for themselves.
