and the big thing.... i do wonder about my healthcare if one of those rockets does hit.
Puts things into perspective doesn't it. We're complaining about healthcare or lack of here, and we have boyz over in the sandy armpit of the world fighting dying so we can sit here and bitch about things.
Hooah soldier ...keep kicking ass and keep your ass down
