Pear, pair, pare

Pair: two of anything

Pare: what KP duty in the military used to be, paring potatoes. Now that work is done by KBR (Kellogg, Brown & Root). I wonder what punishment duties are now required in the military, perhaps watching a Trump speech over and over.

Pear: as in the Affordable Pear Act, critical name given to proposed aid to help the poor afford fresh fruits and vegetables. Opposed by Republicans as socialism.
