At least the violins are silent

February 26, 2014 

My lovely wife enters the Jim Walters Veterans Memorial Duplex:

Wife: Jim, why are you doing cartwheels, did we win the Lotto?

Jim: No dear, this great news I have is much more important than us. It looks like the military "heroes" are getting their devastating 1 percent pension cuts reinstated.

Wife: Now I can sleep at night without you crying like John Boehner and playing those sad songs on your violin.

Jim: Dear, my concern and compassion for military "heroes" is almost as strong as my love for the wealthy.

Vote Hillary in 2016.
