you make a very valid argument. I'm in the army and I work with a ton of civilian government employees (most of them retired military) (most of them are minorities) (all obama voters) and the stupidity and low informness is astounding. whether or not beyonce lip sync'd the nat'l anthem is more important to them than the fact the debt is skyrocketing and Obama added 5 trillion dollars to it. yet the funny part is they cry about not getting a pay for the past 4 years (the whole time Obama has been in office!!!) because of the government pay freeze. lolololololol somebody kill me were in the end times.
