I was in sears optical the other day and a Navy sailor was picking up his new glasses. He was talking to another person and I was sitting at a desk between the two people talking(I do not work for sears or the optical place). The sailor was talking about military issued lens are thick and heavy. Then he was talking about eye surgery, so he would not need glasses. The sailor said,"The Navy will not pay for the surgery unless I reenlist". I thought in this country we take care of our troops and veterans. The military truly needs to eliminate Hospitals and other care facilities and let specially trained and certified doctors, nurses and other health care professional take care of these troops and veterans. Obviously this is not health care that the military offers to it's troops and veterans. It is Manipulation care, If you reenlist we will take care of your eyes, unbelievable! This navy sailor said, "I wanted to buy a car, but now I will pay for the surgery to fix my eyes".

According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
