Congress is now on recess as of Aug. 4, returning to their seats in DC on Sept. 8 while on recess, they are campaigning for the November election.
In their campaign speeches they make promises they probably can
not keep. They visit VA medical centers, nursing homes for the aged, union halls, hold round table sessions, meet with constituents. In my opinion, items of this nature should always be on their agenda, not just three
months prior to the elections looking for votes.
Now that the VA has a new administrator, the problems are not yet solved.
Hopefully the new administrator will make needed improvements as the investigation continues to turn up inappropriate discrepancies.
The main item that needs to be addressed by Congress when back in session is House Bill HR-543, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Agent Orange Act.
We vets need help from the American people to call their members of Congress and urge them to support this House bill.
Navy Vietnam veterans are the most denied which makes no sense for VA benefits because they served at sea not on land, yet are still infected and sick with agent orange.
The deadly herbicide was in the air and in our drinking water at sea, a proven fact by the Institute Of Medicine which the VA ignores. With Congress on recess in their home States campaigning, let them know that American people do have a voice.
Sit back and
How can we allow all these Muslim radicals who are going to destroy the lives of peaceful people to continue on this march of destruction?
Where are our leaders? Isn't there anyone in the White House who has the courage to stand up to this disaster?
We sit in our comfortable homes watching what is happening around the world on TV. I know exactly what you are saying, "What I can do?"
I feel so sorry for those people. Remember, it's not what you can do, it's what our world leaders should do.
Shame on them all.
There are presently 2.08 billion Muslims in the world. North America has 8.04 million. Just about 400 miles from Iron Mountain we have a city called Dearborn, Mich., "The city that Ford Built."
It's a city of 98,153 people, as of the 2010 Census, with a 46 percent Muslim population. I am by no means saying they're terrorists, all I'm saying is Muslims are already here.
Those Muslim terrorists in the Middle East are determined to destroy our way of life. They want to eventually plant their flag on the White House.
It's easy to sit back and say nothing or do nothing. In the meantime, the march goes on.
Before me reads a letter from the Michigan Department of the Attorney General Consumer Protection Division. The letter states Consumer Protection is refusing to help protect me from future unfair business practices because I have used up my allotted complaints to them.
Those people need to realize they are working for me and not the other way around. Furthermore, the person who authored said letter to me needs to be terminated post haste. Michigan Consumer Protection should be darn glad I am doing their job of policing unscrupulous goings-on by Michigan retailers without pay.
I urge and encourage anyone and everyone who has been schemed/scammed/cheated or conned by a Michigan business to telephone Consumer Protection in Lansing at (877) 765-8388 or fax them at (517) 241-3771.
You pay full taxes and you have a right to demand full service from our government "for the people," don't you?
What did Presidents Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common?
This is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around. I didn't know of this until it was pointed out to me.
Back during the Great Depression, Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of all illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work.
Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after World War II to create jobs for returning veterans.
In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans. The program was called Operation Wetback. It was done so World War II and Korean War veterans would have a better chance at jobs. It took two years, but they deported them.
Now, if they could deport the illegal aliens back then, they could surely do it today. If you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation Wetback into your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself.
Why, you might ask, can't they do this today? Actually the answer is quite simple. Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower were men of honor, not politicians looking for votes.
Reminder, don't forget to pay your taxes - 12 to 20 million illegal aliens - are depending on it.
to get the ax
The Department of Defense sent out separation notices to 1,200 Army captains, including 48 deployed to Afghanistan. They received eight to nine months of notice so they could prepare for civilian life. What good is the notice for the captains deployed to Iraq for the next eight or nine months? How will this affect their performance in a war zone?
The next group to get the ax will be majors, and I can only assume this will continue up the line to officers who have not served the 20 years needed to retire and receive their retirement benefits.
The separations are part of the force reductions necessitated by the sequestration defense cuts. The projected savings in defense spending across all branches of the service will be $3.5 billion over five years.
Our foreign aid is $37 billion annually. If we cut it by 2 percent, or $0.74 billion per year, we will save $3.7 billion over five years, and not have to cut our military forces.
Surely, with some rational thinking, we can squeeze 2 percent out of the foreign aid budget without jeopardizing our interests overseas, which will allow us to maintain our current force levels and enhance our national security.
Only fools repeat their mistakes, and even bigger fools forget their proud history.
What in the heck is wrong with you creatures of politics to even consider for a moment the dismantling of the U.S.S. Saratoga? And why in the name of Hades don't you just dismantle the U.S.S. Constitution, the Alamo, the McLean Farm House at Appomattox, Plymouth Rock, and even the White House Itself while you are at it. The latter being vacant a lot of the time anyway, while its inhabitants are off on one vacation or another.
Isn't it bad enough that you political bon vivants cow-tow in front of our nation's potential enemies, spend half your term of office on vacations, and often create laws that benefit your handlers alone.
Now you seek to tear asunder all that is truly American by nature?
How dare you chip away at our history on a daily basis, as you did with Brandy Station where "The Largest Calvary Battle of The Civil War" occurred in June 1863, and that was to create just another money-making condominium complex.
And if it is a question of money, then might I suggest that you politicians take a few less vacations, and stop pandering to special interests. But above all, keep your bloody hands off of our history, our national pride, and our kid's heritage.
Every man and woman, who has ever fought for, cried over, bled upon, voted to change, or is buried beneath this land, has a stake in the ongoing survival of this nation. And let no man or woman, regardless of how wealthy, politically placed, or even arrogant, tell you otherwise.
The biggest destroyers of any nation are apathy and taking for granted what your forefathers gave their lives to create and defend.
Unfortunately, there are those who are content to merely sit back and live on past glories, and others who politically milk that which has already been created, ignoring totally that freedom is, and always will be, a work in progress.
Unfortunately and if we are not ever vigilant, that which is so often taken for granted will be taken away entirely, by force, deception, and even lies.
Is a America going stupid, or what?
When you let homosexuals have a marriage ceremony, just thinking about it makes me sick.
Can anyone tell me why this is even an issue?
Homosexuals and lesbians are not what they want you to believe.
It is a practice lifestyle and is not good for anything, nothing but sadness and misery, and it is part of why our country is coming apart.
Our so-called government is behind this issue, instead of common sense.
The bureaucrats and politician government have turned t into political correctness which is nothing more than the stupidness I am trying to express.
God's laws are supreme, you have a choice. The battle is between good or ever, God or Satan.
Am I going crazy or what?
