(Buzzfeed)   And you thought we couldn't destroy the institution of marriage more? Federal judge rules that VA benefits can't be denied to same-sex spouses. Dammit, who got rainbows in my VA hospital?   ( divider line

SauronWasFramed: VA benefits? Kinda like sending the cow to a slaughterhouse, ain't it?

I can't speak to medical benefits but VA education benefits paid for my undergrad (Montgomery GI Bill) and my grad school (Post 9-11 GI Bill). The latter included a monthly stipend that was over $2K a month, straight into my pocket. In the end, 6 years of service earned me about $100K that paid for two degrees. And zero debt, student loan or otherwise.

Like a sore dick, you can't beat it.

born_yesterday: flondrix: cchris_39: Not that there will be long lines when Obamacare gets the rest of us.

Do you really think that people who have insurance now will lose it because of Obamacare?

And those who don't have insurance, but have lots of money will be able to buy any sort of medical care they want, just like always.

Did you ever see The Road, Mad Max:  Beyond Thunderdome, Highlander, and Into the Mouth of Madness?  Combine them all, and that's what N0BummerCare is going to do to this country a single short hour after implementation.

Lenny_da_Hog: This discriminates against unmarried people.

It also discriminates against people not in the military, the deceased, and non-humans.

This is an outrage. What am I supposed to tell my kids when they come to me and ask, "Daddy, why are those two men sharing the same insurance?"

/Won't somebody think of the children?!
