Somebody Make It STOP!

Ironically, we find out today that The Girl's dad is going back to Iraq. Well, actually before he was in Afghanistan but still. So 4th of July hamburgers and hot dogs were eaten with a young girl with swollen eyes from crying and a dad trying to be really upbeat. It sucks. And I need to shut up before I get really snarky and political.

My nephew just shipped out to Iraq. He's 19. Of course, everyone in the family is really upset about it...

That really sucks! I am so sorry! Go ahead and get snarky - I will - the pinhead in Washington is such a dumb-ass! And, He doesn't really give a damn about American citizens - just lining the pockets of his friends...and himself. Such a no-good-for-nothing!

So sorry to hear this. I can't imagine what that would feel like.

Hang in there.
