I’m using the “categories” that the Trump administration uses. I care about every single individual child who doesn’t have enough to eat every day. Same goes for every elderly person and every veteran. You, apparently, only care about being “right” and maintaining your perspective that “your team” has done nothing wrong. Meanwhile, your team is the one who is documenting this issue.

Nothing in this discussion has been talking anything about what to do about this problem. It’s been entirely focused on getting you to admit that there even is a problem. Is that what they taught you in the military — that if you don’t have a solution ready at hand you pretend the issue doesn’t exist so that you can maintain your level of comfort? I’m going to go out on a limb and say no!
