Care to even elaborate on your claim? I have come across many US mercenaries and former mercenaries, and only a very few impress me.

So, I am scum because I don't believe in stealing wealth from those in the private sector? That make me a bad person?

He he he, that's the way your lawmakers operate.....

before any law is passed, the first thing that has to be established in who is exempted and gets a pass on the law.....

why do you think the tax laws are sooooooo flucked up.

BTW....remember a little thing that was passed earlier this year...."pay as you go".......he he he he.......$850 billon dollars just went on america's chinese credit card.

career politicans will just keep right on screwing the hell out of you.......and why not.....you keep allowing them to get away with it.
