    Excerpt from NYT article (of a series) July 20:

    I find this disgusting...especially in a time of active War.

    All I can manage to say for the moment...grrrr

    Friggin disgusting. And Congress allows it because the lobbyists line their pockets. I'd sure love to see a list of the Congressional members who get money from these guys. Some angry calls, letters, or emails might make me a little less pissed about this. Taking advantage of people like this should be unacceptable to our elected officials.

    Of course I'm not surprised, but it just is so galling to hear the details of yet another exploitation of the workers by the corporate/government interests.

    That is definitely not cool. Being someone going into the military I hope I can avoid being screwed.
