The ad was quickly criticized by LGBTQ partisans and allies on Twitter, questioning the comparing and the ad’s large word. Some signs argued that healthcare coverage is a required right for service representatives, and that transgender medical aid should most certainly be covered as a basic need.
Shit, it’s been covered once but I am all in favor of stipulating required medical care to our troops.
How is this a question?

With that math, countless praised the aircrafts, calling them a” gigantic waste of money” and” a multi-trillion dollar awkwardnes .”
Health $ 200
Education $ 150
Infrastructure $ 800
Graft $ 1,450, 000,000, 000

But most of all, countless expressed support for Chelsea Manning, swearing her a protagonist. They appeared the military forces should be focused on banking more people like Manning, blaming FRC Action for attacking Manning.
We miss more good, honest parties like Chelsea! Thanks for asking

Yes the military needs to start a program to produce soldiers as good as Chelsea.

Speaking as a non-American, your global persona would be improved if you had a few more Chelsea Mannings and stopped killing people for a bit.
