Two Fort Hood Iraq War Veterans Kill Themselves

In yet another of what promises to be a long string of PTSD tragedies, two young soldiers took their own lives in separate incidents at Fort Hood, Texas, over the weekend.

Mr Bush and Congress: Stop the war, fully fund VA health care, and bring our troops home. Now. It isn't worth it. It really isn't.

Never mind, I know the fuckers aren't listening. So now we have to do it ourselves. Take it to the streets. I'm not too old yet to do it, and neither are you.

I'll be in Washington DC on Septermber 24. Will you?
