My Dad once said that people get the government they deserve. Maybe the Fifth deserves Hal. The Fifth could do better than Hal Rogers. The people of the Fifth act like they are plugged into the Wall Street agenda. It sickens me to read the Wall Street Journal editorials saying how great our wars in the Middle East are. Great for Who(m)? Certainly not for you or for me. You know, if you took a tour of duty in Afghanistan, you could come back with an arm or a leg missing. A right-wing publication that I sometimes read has recently remarked that since we militarily occupied Iraq and Afghanistan, Christianity has almost been wiped out in those two countries. At least there are plenty of other countries thriving, that the United States hasn't sent in troops to screw up. Maybe someday Hal Rogers will write his memoirs and explain why he always voted to support the U.S. having Middle East Wars, and why he always voted to screw up things, and always voted against the common man, and against the interests of ordinary people like you and like me.
