Had the fans at the park just received a special tax demand for payment for the foreign wars, the sailor's reception could have been quite different.
And why haven't we received such a demand? We are shirking our duty as citizens by not paying current obligations.
To say, or believe for a minute, that we "support our troops" is a fraud. Wearing a flag lapel pin, putting a sticker on your car or posting a flag on your home does nothing.
