muster plastered

It was reported this week that over twenty-five percent of Middle East combat veterans have developed weekly binge drinking habits, and almost two thirds of combat veterans exhibit signs of major drinking problems, on top of post-traumatic stress concerns. We are going to have a couple of hundred thousand of these poor victims of neocon imperialism returning to our nation, not getting the attention and assistance they need and deserve, and they are going to be ticking time bombs needing little stimulus to climb the nearest clock tower and start sniping unsuspecting citizens after all of these psychological issues come to maturity and start to manifest themselves. I have little confidence in the future of our country, at least for the next couple of decades.

I think I need a drink...

Oh yeah....I had a client a couple of years ago who was a mucky-muck with the state Dept. of Health and Human Services and they have been gearing up for quite a while to handle the wave of screwed-up vets they know will be dumped by the VA. If, and when, their tours end they'll be coming home to jack-shit for support. The effects are going to bleed out like ink on wet construction paper.
