Dirty Bush Screws the Troops. Again.

What's dirty Bush done this time?

He's cut in half funding for treatment of war-related brain injuries and research on war-related brain injuries.

You know, the kind of war-related brain injuries one might get while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. IEDS, gunshot wounds, that kind of thing.

Please keep in mind Preznit Toad-Exploder's previous record of supporting the troops:
issuing crappy body armor to save money
giving a hard time to troops who buy their own body armor because the DOD doesn't want to be caught being cheap shits
putting crappy armor on tanks to save money
denying treatment to vets with PTSD to save money
putting out anti-PTSD propaganda to save money
undertreating vets with PTSD to save money
Heckuva job.

Full story here.

There are snakes on AF1, dude. They're called the entire Bush Administration.

Bush is just practising what's known as "compassionate conservatism," remember? That's his phrase from his first campaign.

I liked the title of your post-Dirty Bush Screws the Troops, Again--might as well just write the same title again and again and again.......................

Conservatives love to cut funding for brain disorder and mental health. Having a form of bipolar I have heard several tell me that there is no such thing as mental illness and that psychiatry is a "pseudo science."

Ah yes. Shades of Tom Cruise and scientology. Talibangelicals think that way, too. Then they whip their kids. Sick puppies, one and all.
