So if road taxes used for bike paths are wrong, then can we assume that property and sales taxes used to pay for roads is also wrong? If we start charging the road users what it actually costs to build and maintain the roads, they are going to howl loudly, VERY loudly.

Well, they've staged the drills, now have any Christian groups rioted in the streets or attacked anyone because of them? That's what will happen if the drills identify Muslims as the attackers in the drills. The school districts and local authorities are too cowardly to admit this will most likely happen.
So, we only give a "Service Connected" status to those that were injured during combat? What's the difference between a vet that lost a leg from an IED explosion and a vet that lost a leg during a training exercise in the States, or being run over by a military vehicle on base? Since you say you worked at the VA, then you should know, apparently unlike the author, that anyone that doesn't have a Service connected injury is charged for their treatment according to their income.

They can join now with Type II diabetes? I had a guy sent back from AFEES for that. He was trying to conceal it, but it showed up in his urine. Also, a high school graduate that doesn't sleep through classes should easily score as a Cat 2 on the ASVAB.
You should only lose 2 pounds per week. It's also not that easy, as the weight loss MUST be maintained permanently. When I was in the Navy, the cooks on the mess line had to dip through about 2-3" of grease to get the spoon under the main entree and slap it on your tray. The lettuce for the salad was often brownish, and the tomatoes were mostly turning a reddish brown. We won't talk about whatever those little balls were that they took out of a huge can and warmed up for Midrats, some on here might not have eaten breakfast yet.
