    I’m not at all surprised. I’ve had a claim open with the VA for over a year and they told me they haven’t even looked at it since January. I got my Representatives office involved (Waxman) and they told his office the same thing.  Not only are they not doing anything, they don’t care who knows it.

    The Army Times themselves reported 18 veterans commit suicide every day , CNN mentioned it once , http://www.armytimes.com/news/2010/04/military_veterans_suicide_042210w/
    But every mainstream media on the planet screams for 48 hrs when a active soldier dies and uses it to bludgeon any opposition , thats why we have to use boing boing more . Now maybe we can talk about the 19,000 reported rapes in the military every year and how the victims are honorably discharged for reporting the rapes and the less than 5% prosecutions  .

    Ask yourselves if they rape their own this much how many are they raping in the country’s they occupy with your tax dollars 5 million orphans in Afghanistan for 11,000 scary Taliban 2 million widows in Iraq for 11,000 scary Taliban , 4.7 million refugees in Palestinian for 10,000 Hamas , Bill gates stops 200 a year out of a billion in India from getting polio and 27,000 die a day of curable diseases no experimental vaccines required the world has lost its way   .

    The only solution seems to be a revolution of alternative media informing a population starving for truth, dieing without liberty ,clawing for a moment of freedom ,grasping for a moment of dignity from a disgusting system that is bent on destroying everything because it is afraid to be just or accountable . Ok now i feel better after blowing off this steam , thanks Boing Boing hehe
