Failing to protect veterans

May 20, 2014

No wonder so many veterans of military service have lost all faith in promises made by the government they defended....

From redstate:

"Unlike the vast majority of liberal websites, conservatives are loathe to ban commenters, unless said commenters either violate terms of use or engage in a ceaseless pattern of ad hominem and personal attacks. While their commitment to the preservation of free speech is admirable, and many of these conservatives will tell you they’re “amused” by the presence of liberal trolls, the fact remains that these conservatives not only open themselves up to troll infestation, but are usually the first ones to find themselves in thoroughly pointless flame wars with liberal flame throwers whose only purpose is to disrupt the conservative discussion."

Democrats Calling Obama ‘Detached,’ ‘Flat Footed,’ ‘Incompetent.’ I thought these were established facts. CNN’s John King reports that Democrats are privately calling President Obama “detached,” “flat footed,” and “incompetent.” “Forget for a moment that Republican outrage,” said King on his CNN show this morning. “More and more Democrats in key 2014 races are calling for the president to get a spine, they say, and fire his Veterans Affairs secretary. And what more and more Democrats are saying privately is scathing, calling the president and his team detached, flat footed, even incompetent. “Maggie Haberman,” said King turning to a panelist, “that’s what strikes me, what democrats are saying privately in the wakes of the healthcare.gov problems, they see a president who doesn’t want to take command, doesn’t want to act fast. Raising the competence question.

Remember 'the empty chair' that Clint so aptly talked to?

Thought I would repost it. Libs didn't like it.

Well, I think even the empty chair was more coherent than that pathetic old man Eastwood.

"And the study stated that Ms.NBC had a news content of 20%....80% according to the study was opinion..."

As opposed to Fixed News which is fair and balanced.....50% complete B.S. and the other 50% distorted propaganda based on what "some say".

At least that's what some say, and that's good enough for me and our Republic party I feel or think I feel or feel I think.

Greg Jarrett of FOX SNOOZE is the king of "Some Say" journalism . . . or rather, he was the king, before police arrested him in a Mpls. airport bar.

Alternate reality is best maintained by the "some say" method of "journalism". At least that's what "some say".

"with the help of our liberal main-stream media, we justa hafta fly to victory once again...I feel. Now, they give us advertising that money justa cannot buy, infinite amounts of money coulda not buy...and we of the Democrat Party do appreciate the support of the media...."

But I feel or feel I think or think I feel that only if the Democrat party could actually own their own liberal media like the Republic party with their very own Fixed News and talk radio, then the Democrat party too could operate inside of an alternate reality bubble.

Because like Jack-In-The-Fox knows, fantasy is so much more fun than reality.

I am glad that liberal posts are removed while right wing posts are kept. That's fair and balanced just like our Fixed News, America's most trusted news source.

"I justa enjoy reading all of my friend HAHA-InTheHead's musings....I feel he may be Big Ed Schultz, now that Big Ed is pulling the plug on his radio show. I justa feel bad Ed could not move more forword with his show. I justa cannot understand why he did not get a bigger and bigger following, as I know all he did was 'justa give the facts'....justa like HAHA-InTheHead does...."

Oh, but maybe Jack-in-the-Fox could start his own radio show, because we all know that radio is a cutting edge medium for information, right up there with the pony express.

But at least our Republic party owns the backword talk radio. If they keep talking, they could help talk the Republic party right into non-existence. That could be moving farword I feel or think I feel or feel I think.

Bad Hair, you have tunnel vision. I don't care if you understand me or not. I don't lie about people to shut them up, so you can just blow and blow and blow. Like anyone cares.

Only a Democrat will say that it's patriotic to vote Democrat.

Duh...

If the VA policies had been commented on by then-Sen. Obama, what in the wide world has happened under his watch as President? Obviously, zip.

So his being all mad and not tolerating it "period" will now get us what? Again, zip.

Didn't he once propose that veterans should use their own insurance to pay for combat injuries? Shouldn't it be the obligation of the nation to take care of its vets and their combat injuries?

Actions are louder than words any day. Since VA policy was terrible under Pres. Bush and a Republican congress, and we've had most of the libs here go on and on and on about that, just what have the Democrats done about the VA since? Looks like zip. Talk, but no walk.

You can have the whole lot of politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, over this VA farce.

It's a crying shame...

"the Republican Party is now seen as “anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-minority, anti-gay, anti-education, anti-environment"

"Yep, what you see is what it is".

And, all that "it" is, is yet to be seen!!

Why? Cause it's a secret.....

Very possible that technology will produce a bobblehead Republican that uses lithium batteries instead of ingesting lithium to find that balance by 2016 but we'll have to wait and see. Maybe 3 Billion dollars can buy a GOP/TP President? Who knows??

Just hope they don't try to use that "America's Team" thing again.....Uugghhhhhh

"You want to talk about "failure to protect?" View this video of the Casselton Train Derailment . . ."

I think we can find a way to blame Obama for that. Everything else is exclusively his fault, so why wouldn't this also be his fault???

I have a theory Fixed News would be proud of - maybe it was a socialist plot to deliberately "derail" the oil boom (no pun intended).

Let's start the rumor, and then eventually it will become true and it will then officially be Obama's fault.

Hair, you reinforce the reason why no one ever should vote Democrat. Some were fooled once, twice but never ever again.
