Misdirected Cynicism...Pure and Simple.
When the budget is tight, do you cut the low visibility items, or the high visibility items?
Pools...Soldiers being screwed...righteous indignation...emergency spending bill...no cost savings OR
Cancel an order for a plane...no indignation...no emergency spending bill...cost savings.
No different than a local city council cutting police forces...(See line about the pools above).
Its about VISIBILITY...nothing more.
It is the shared experiences of companionship that make loss bearable.
RIP Orion, May where you are be full of Rabbits.
