Suicides Become Part of Politics

Senator Barack Obama has taken to exploiting our troops to new lows. The NYT and other media outlets have been making a big splash about the recent up ticks in suicides among our troops. They seem to want to push the numbers before the American people without context but plenty of bias.
Suicide is a serious issue both for the military and for those of us at home. It is not limited to just military personal but goes on to effect every area of society. It is bias that leads you to believe that being in the military is the only reason for the suicides. If the same demographic is used as a comparison out of civilian population we might have other reasons for this change.
The fact is that the civilian population has shown an up tick as well only greater. How come this isn't included in those reports people are writing? Is it lazy journalism or bias?

Read this article By Thomas Sowell and notice other bias.

Too bad people like Thomas Sowell don't run for President.

Seems to happen with a lot of the Clinton friends, they go home look in the mirror or something and that is it.

But our children who go and protect this country with their own blood, who are willing to die so we may live free - Well those people should know we love them.

I don't know if you know this but June 26th, Grass roots: largest care package campaign ever will be going on with a webathon webcast, including most of the conservative hosts you would expect. Getting the word out is something at least.
