The Wounded Warrior project strikes me as real life war profiteering that Milo would be proud of. If you haven't seen the poignant commercials on TV you don't have a TV. The project has come under fire by charity watchdog groups. You can find argument pro and and con about the efficiency, or lack of efficiency of this group but that is not the point I am trying to make.
The need for the Wounded Warrior project shouldn't exist. An agency already exists to take care of victims of the war - the Veterans Administration. They could and should take care of these "Wounded Warriors." The problem is, they have been underfunded. Why is it underfunded? It is underfunded because the corporations for whom the wars have been waged have the power to cut the funding.
Not only does it shift the burden of funding from themselves as taxpayers to the consumer which excludes them, it provides just another lucrative way of making money. For example, it has been reported that the CEO earns, or is payed, $200,000 a year and thousands of dollars more are made by the advertising industry. One way or the other, care of war victims, should be by the government. I am hesitant to call them heroes even though they were crippled doing heroic deeds because it is more accurate to refer to them as victims. Victims of the greed and lies of the corporate world which generates obscene profits for oil and war related industries. These young men and women are told they are fighting for our freedom. They are not. Our freedom is not under attack from outside - just from within. They are not over there for me, I want them home building things not over there destroying things.
