56. If I had the chance to go to college for free

I never would have squandered the past four years, and the next two years on this drivel. And now? I've got a bad knee, I'm stuck in a dead end job for the next two years, deployed once in support of cleaning up an intervention that Clinton supported, and I'm burnt out enough that when my name came up for another deployment, they didn't want me going because my head's screwed.

The military needs to be downsized harder. Fraud, waste, and abuse need to ACTUALLY BE CHASED, instead of token offerings being given that when reports go up, do nothing. More General Officers need to be fired. The F-35 needs to be scrapped for a better, more cost efficient design. The military is a fucking food processor that we've been stuffing money into and next to none of it goes to the personnel, or the bases that the personnel work on-- my supervisors have been saying for the past four years that we've been having to do more and more for less and less.

All thanks to the greedy sons of bitches in Congress, and the people that support them.
