… the VA needs a Change in Philosophy …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 5th,2017

.. the VA medical system is a single – payer system . The government operates it . Unfortunately , it is unionized . It should not be . The entire setup should be deregulated and totally overhauled . It needs to be completely redone …

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..
.. [link] to the blog piece ..

.. the VA has gorged itself on budgets and increases during the Obama years . Spending on the VA system has soared , from around $65 billion , to more than $155 billion dollars . Yet , the problems have gotten far , far worse . There is no excuse , none for all of this waste , fraud , abuse , and lack of accountability . The entire system needs to be redesigned …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 1st,2016

.. unfortunately , they will likely not do so …

… If Pvt. Bergdahl were a person of character …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 21st,2014

.. he would not have deserted …

.. he would not have gotten those young men hurt in the pursuit of his recovery . Also , he would not have gotten those other young men kiiled in the performance of their duty …. just to try to recover him …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the interview footage …

.. also , if he were a person of character , he would likely not have been tortured . His ” character ” would have allowed him to stand up under the pressure of interrogation and torture by his torturers . But , he is not , and he did not . He is no hero ….

.. how does Colonel Peters put it …

If Bowe Bergdahl had not deserted, he would not have been tortured. And all the bleeding hearts on the left need to knock it off and go to the burn ward at Fort Sam Houston hospital in San Antonio!

Bowe Bergdahl…is going to get back to his family eventually fine, in good physical health. Those brave soldiers and Marines and Navy Corpsmen and Airmen in the hospital down in San Antonio, they’re never going to be completely right. They are in gruesome pain. Many of them are not coming home.

And what about the dead soldiers? And yes, they were lost looking for Bergdahl despite Sec. Hagel’s nonsensical and duplicitous parsing of words. I mean, my god. Look, Bergdahl is back. He’s alive. Fine. But let’s stop making this guy into a victim, a hero.

…And let me send a message to all those on the left: Our soldiers don’t want your pity, they want your respect , and they have earned it!

.. he was great . He was a fire – breathing dynamo of energy , standing up for his fellow veterans . Plus , he is right . Those young men , all they ask for is your respect . They have earned it …

.. Thank you and May God Bless Each and Every One of You . You sure as heck have long ago earned my personal and eternal respect …

… It is Good to CounterAttack [the ObamaCraps]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,June 12th,2014

.. these folks are going public , not because they want to , but because events have forced them to do so …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the interview …

.. how the ObamaCraps have the gall to attack them and their actions is beyond me . These young men served with honor , unlike Pvt Bergdahl , who deserted . These young people went out on a mission to try to recover Bergdahl , and did not return unscathed . The parents of the one young man who was killed are not alone . There were others , and SecDef Hagel should have damn well known better . Understand what you are doing before you attack , otherwise your attempt will blow up in your face …

… Does Shinseki Need to Go ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 3rd,2014

.. simply , yes ..

.. but , he is not the only one .

.. he was an Army General , as well as the former Chief of Staff . He was insubordinate to his civilian superiors , and he paid for it with his job …

.. also , he was , more than anything else , command responsibility . In the military services , or most anywhere , you can delegate authority . However , you cannot ever delegate responsibility .

.. Military officers understand better than most that they are responsible for those under their command . If those subordinates (enlisted or officers , it does not matter) screw up badly enough , then the officer himself or herself ” walks the plank . ” It does not matter if they were at fault , or not . They are held to a much higher standard . They are held to be command responsible …

.. however , it is not just Shinseki . Others will need to go , as well …

… What are the DummyCraps Doing ?? [on ObamaCrapCare]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 12th,2014

.. what are these people thinking and doing ?

.. this country has always celebrated the individual , the entrepreneur , the businessman , the farmer , those who work their fannies off to build something , whether it is a service or a product or a business …

.. Now , the DummyCraps celebrate sitting on our butts … Gross ! …

My, oh, my, how times have changed. America now has a government that views work as a trap and celebrates those who escape it.

That is the upshot of last week’s remarkable exchange over ObamaCare. It began when the head of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office reported that the interplay of taxes and subsidies in the law “creates a disincentive for people to work.” The report predicted the mix would lead to fewer hours worked, costing the equivalent of nearly 2.5 million jobs.

In response, President Obama’s spokesman pleaded guilty — with pride and pleasure.

“Opportunity created by affordable, quality health insurance allows families in America to make a decision about how they will work, or if they will work,” Jay Carney said. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi applauded the law for freeing people from “job-lock.”

.. what must people be thinking …
