Drunken Sailors

The idea that the government is currently conservative has almost become a joke at this point. American tax dollars are being handled like Monopoly money. It's like having two crackhead parents who try to shield you from their habit until you're all sitting out on the street, shivering and broke, wondering what the hell happened. One of my best friends is heading into the Army this week, and I hope that for everyone's sake, some sanity prevails in our foreign policy and how we are utilizing the military and civilian resources in this country.
