    Wasn’t it the property taxes levied on the hard-working parents of those students that paid for those desks, as well as the teacher’s salary? Or am I missing something? I have the utmost respect for John McCain. I think he’s a hero and a patriot. But if we were in Vietnam to ensure freedom for Americans, well, things haven’t turned out so great for the Vietnamese. As far as I know, Vietnam is a totalitarian Communist country. Or did I miss something?
