“The cost is too high.”
What price our honor, then?

Thanks for paging. Needs all the airtime and attention it can get.
This ranks up there with our treatment of veterans as our national shame, and the stark exposure of GOP values.

‘O thirty million English that babble of England’s might,
Behold there are twenty heroes who lack their food tonight;
Our children’s children are lisping “to honour the charge they made” —
And we leave to the streets and the workhouse the charge of the Light Brigade.’

— Kipling

Should we cut military spending? No. So what if we’re not only the biggest military spending nation, but also outspending multiple runners-up. You can’t put a price on preparedness.

Should we stop being such wild-eyed fanatical anti-abortion a-holes? No, you can’t put a price on the lives of the unborn. Even if that means more women die from lack of healthcare than the unwanted babies we force them to carry to term. It’s not like anyone we care about reads those statistics.

Should we pay for 9-11 respondents healthcare? No, it’s too expensive. Screw ‘em.

Should we acknowledge the irony? No, our party base is a bunch of mouth-breathers faithfully dancing to our tune. If need be, say something inflammatory about the mexicans to distract them. They’ll eat that crap up and demand more.

/do I need to?

And I’m sure every last one of those GOP politicians had a very nice tweet or email or public statement about 9-11. “Never Forget.” And a flag lapel pin. And I’ll bet the majority of them would support bombing Iran. And building a wall across our border(s). And deporting over 10 million people. All important things that they have money for. But not American citizens who served. And in their hour of need they are pissed upon. The GOP is a joke, a very bad joke.

In GOP Trumpland, they’re just a bunch of losers.

“I like heroes who don’t get cancer”.
