The Buck Doesn't Stop Anywhere Near Him

Once again, our glorious leader is proving that he doesn't give a flying fuck about our troops and what they've done for his war of choice. The Dept. of Veterans Affairs is now reviewing 72,000 cases of post-traumatic stress disorder over the past 5 years to weed out estimated fraud -- in other words, these 70,000 former soldiers will have to prove all over again that they are suffering from this debilitating disease. The administration would rather do this -- as well as harass a whistleblower in the Army who did her job and pointed out that all the billions of dollars in non-compete contracts awarded to Halliburton (the company Dick Cheny used to head) were illegal -- than honestly account for itself and its horrible decision to invade Iraq.

Thank God for women like Cindy Sheehan, who are demanding answers and are no longer going to let this administration stonewall them.

That Didn't Go As Planned

The few plans I had for this past weekend fell apart like one of Dr. Evil's traps for Austin Powers. Actually I only had two things that I really wanted to do: attend Friday night's WSFA meeting (the first one I would've gone to in 3-4 years) and catch Original Child Bomb on Saturday night. Sadly, neither happened due to circumstances beyond my control. To make matters worse, I suffered a hive attack early in the middle of the afternoon on Saturday, and any of my friends who has seen me have one can tell you that an attack literally wipes me out for hours.

I'm hoping the next weekend goes better. It would've been nice to take a couple days off between jobs and have a long weekend -- especially since I cannot take a day off during my probationary period at the new job -- but I had less than one day of personal time left with my soon-to-be-former employer. It sucks, but sometimes you just have to go with what life gives you.
