… This Could Get Interesting [#federal child dumping]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 11th,2014

.. and , no , this is not Sheriff Joe Arpaio getting involved …. yet .

.. what I am talking about is Maricopa County [that means Phoenix] . Phoenix is Arizona ‘ s state capital , so the rest of Arizona ‘ body politic has to be paying attention . Yes , they will pay the bills . They may not want to , but they will do it . Especially in an election year . Most states , including Arizona , have a rainy – day fund . They can dip into this for unanticipated expenses . These kinds of bills sure as hell meet the definition thereof . Maricopa will not be the only one . There will be others …

.. what I am talking about is child abuse . These kids are just being dumped onto the streets of Phoenix (and Maricopa County) . There is plenty of real estate for them to cover . Maricopa County is well over 8,500 square miles in land area . Where I live in Ohio [Cuyahoga County] is 1,250 square miles , and 2/3rds of that is Lake Erie .

.. Also , it is hot as hell this time of year . Average temps during the day in Phoenix are around 105 to 115 degrees , folks . It may be ” dry heat , ” but it is still dangerous as hell , especially to the unacclimated , and most of all , kids …

.. the Maricopa County Attorney is talking about going after the Feds . Specifically , going criminally after the folks who are doing the dumping , and I would suspect , even more . Dumping those kids on the streets in this heat , with no escort or supervision , just to get rid of them , is criminal . It is child endangerment , in my state , in any state …

.. If he has a good working relationship with the US Atty in Phoenix , then the US Atty can go after the folks who are higher up the food chain … and that means all the way up , including , potentially Obama . Yes , POTUS . This is a criminal dereliction of duty , and it is crying out loudly for a federal criminal investigation . A US Atty would be perfect for it , and the visibility would help protect him or her …

… With VAgate , it is Both Problems [#leadership failure , #funding]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,May 27th,2014

.. where it comes to leadership , the ObamaCraps do not know the meaning of the word . They have no idea , and the bureaucracy get to do whatever it wants …

.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. where it comes to funding , it is not the adequacy of funding . It is the effectiveness and efficiency of the funding . All the funding in the world will not work if it does not get directed to the right places , in the right way , and is done in the right manner . What would help is that , especially in basic care , is that the damn medical folks produce at an average rate . We really do not need better …

.. However , the vets do deserve better . You can shovel more and more money , and if it does not get to the right place , it will not work worth a damn . When these folks are working at a rate roughly equivalent to the doctors and others in the private sector , I will bet that the waiting lines , especially for basic care , go away ….

.. As to specialized care , that will always be a problem . There are many things that the private sector in medicine can handle . However , there are also quite a few where it concerns veterans care that it either cannot or should not handle it . You still have to manage your resources , budget properly , and get the max out of what you do have . It may not eliminate wait lines , but it should help with the problem …

… I suspect that It is happening elsewhere [VA Scandal // Phoenix]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 2nd,2014

.. yea , I picked up on this ..

.. I was thinking about the vets that I know , including friends of mine , and members of my extended family …

.. I know , I know … Phoenix is in the spotlight on this one , but I doubt that it is the only one

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..

.. kudos to C.N.N. on this one .. this is the kind of hard news reporting that they used to do very well , and better than anyone . Maybe they can remember that , and go back to that …
