Welfare-Warfare State Update: The Last Civil War Pensioner

The Wall Street Journal reports:
This is the story of 84-year-old Irene Triplett, who still receives a VA pension for her father's service in the Civil War. The VA is also still paying benefits to 16 widows and children of veterans from the 1898 Spanish-American War and 4,038 widows, sons and daughters of World War I veterans.
If you are a libertarian: you should cringe.
