For the past 60+ years, the United Service Organizations (USO) has provided invaluable support for our brave men and women fighting overseas. This holiday season, spare a few bucks if you can so that our troops can call home and talk to their loved ones. Being deployed overseas must be the toughest thing a family has to endure and I'm sure they'll appreciate whatever we can do for them.

Go here to donate $$ for the desperately needed phone cards.

It boggles my mind that despite appropriations exceeding $300,000,000,000 for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2003, the troops have to rely on donations just to talk to their families back home. What a disgrace.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
