That's what the Dalai Lama said.
Conservative, conservative, conservative.
That's what the black-heart neo-cons said.
If one scrolls below at No Blood for Hubris, one can see the charming stories such as, "First We Maim Your Minds, Then We Dump You," parts one and two, in which the tale of the notorious non-combatant Daddy's-Friends-Got-Me-Into-The-National-Guards-man and current president Bubble Boy, whose government looks for, and then creates ways to deny mental health treatment to veterans who have post-traumatic stress disorder (they do this by deciding, hey! dude! Your flashbacks aren't soooo bad, after all! Adios, amigo! See ya!)
Now, these cuddly neo-cons are doing it again--only it's arguably even more perverse.
Take a gander, but keep a tight fist on your vomit bag:
For Injured U.S. Troops, 'Financial Friendly Fire'
Flaws in Pay System Lead to Dunning, Credit Trouble

Although Loria's problems may be striking on their own, the Army has recently identified 331 other soldiers who have been hit with military debt after being wounded at war.

I've asked it before, now I'm asking it again: what is frickin' wrong with these people?
Why have they no shame?
Why have they no care, no compassion, no sense of responsibility toward the post-born?
Why is it that only sentimentalist tales of lonely, sightless, womb-encased embryoes, quite unable to live on their own, are able to inspire any kind of fellow-feeling in them, if you can call it that?
Why have these people only charred, black hearts?
