“I mean, why did my friend get blown up? For what"

“We knew that this would happen. Now, all the people who went and served, are like, ‘Why did my friend die?’ ”

The U.S. military complex is only interested in expanding the Pentagon budget. The young fools who enlist are just another example of the manipulation that runs this country --Tucson Bones

This is what needs to be shared everywhere. It doesn't really help politically Democrats or Republicans because they are both to blame for a bloated Pentagon budget.

It's the same thing with out-of-control guns violence in this country.

Everything in Congress and the White House is viewed from the lens of how it helps them politically. I get that is important, because after all, if you are a Democrat and you don't win, you can't really stop the disgusting Republicans. But we really need to fix some of these problems that seem intractable.
