In April, a local utility shut off power to a small cemetery in Jersey City, N.J., where thousands of veterans of wars ranging from the Revolutionary War to World War II are buried after the facility fell behind on its bills. Power was eventually restored to Jersey City & Harsimus Cemetery, home to soldiers from the Civil War.
Yet we have to send billions of tax-dollars to useless shit-holes like Pakistan, Afghanistan and other places.
What is needed is much more nation-building at home. Much more.
The next chicken-hawk that suggests another useless foreign war and/or foreign-aid mission needs to be given a pack and rifle and told to go fight it themselves.
