WHILE the government's cutting the budget, why don't they cut their salaries in half and go on Social Security like everybody else? That would definitely put a big chunk of change back into the system. They don't need to be paid what they're getting.
IN America, 450,000 people die from smoking each year. One eighth of them are non-smokers who die from breathing secondhand smoke. I applaud the VFW members who fought hard to protect our rights. Sadly, many VFW members cannot even attend events at the VFW building because they have respiratory problems and the secondhand smoke keeps them out. By regulating smoking to outdoors, they too can participate in events.
