Same Ol' Same Ol'

May 27 | Posted by: Charlie | Tags: Obamacare, VA

The current situation at the Veterans Administration is a national disgrace and paints the Congress and the White House with the same filthy brush, and not just this Congress and White House but to one degree or another all those in recent memory.

The very idea of the people who have laid their lives on the line for the very existence of America being shunted to the side to wait around to die is despicable past the point of me having the vocabulary to express how truly incensed and nauseatingly sickened I am by the treatment of the people who should be at the very top of the priority list for the best healthcare available.

And to have a "commander in chief" who claims to have known nothing about the situation and a Congress who ignores it until there's newsprint and TV face time available to denounce it is almost beyond the belief of even someone like me who holds politicians in a position between ambulance chasers and carney shysters.

The president is known as the chief executive, which means he sits atop the bureaucratic pile with a finger on the pulse and ear to the ground knowing the condition of every important facet of government. To hire a capable and motivated staff, worthy of trust and, above all, reporting what is going on in their bailiwick, bringing it to the president’s attention so he can make decisions based on their information.

To say that the Obama administration is dysfunctional is like calling Lake Pontchartrain a mud puddle. From what the president says nobody tells him anything, he learns it from the media after the fact along with the rest of us. Fast and Furious, IRS targeting scandal, and now the VA, Obama comes off as the most uninformed president in history.

People, if that is truly the case this president needs to do a wholesale firing and hire some people who have at least got enough sense to bring serious matters to his attention.

And a little tip to you folks who are waiting for Obamacare to solve all your healthcare problems, regardless of what Obama says - along with most of the Democrats, his ultimate goal is a single payer, government run national healthcare system. He admitted in 2007 that while it might take a while to get it, he was a proponent of single-payer system.

Well people, that's exactly what the VA is and you can bet everything you own - down to your shoelaces - that's precisely where Obamacare is headed. Priority lists, long waiting times to see a doctor, tons of bureaucratic red tape, all of which will lead to a monolithic monster, seriously inferior healthcare administered by overworked, underpaid, indifferent staff that will eventually bankrupt our county.

And when you have gotten past a certain age, major procedures such as transplants, pacemakers and expensive drugs will be denied to you by some bean counting, pencil pusher whose only medical experience is opening a bottle of aspirin.

Someone even asked Obama a question in a press conference several years ago – citing her mother who was 99 when she needed a pacemaker - if he thought that a person’s spirit or quality of life should be taken into consideration with regards to healthcare decisions, or if there was a medical cutoff at a certain age. Obama famously said that a person in that situation “may be better off not having the surgery but taking the pain killer.” The woman’s mother (who did have a pacemaker put in) was 105 when she asked Obama that question.

I have marveled at how almost half of this nation still trusts the word of a president who has faced the nation and blatantly lied to us. Practically everything this man has touched has turned to dust or is buried in the darkness of executive privilege.

The roll out of Obamacare should have tipped off even the most fervent Obama apologists that these people did not know what they are doing. When they hire a foreign web designer who was definitely not up to the job to do the website, when the world's best are right here on our doorstep shouldn't that plus the nightmare the roll out turned into give some serious qualms to anybody with a brain that there are serious infrastructure problems in play here and that the service it will provide will reflect it.

Personally, I think, congressional healthcare should be provided by the VA; then you'd see some fast action taking place.

This is a fallacy and every Democrat and Republican in Washington should hang their collective heads, cut through the red tape and fix this disgrace.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and for the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

Dear Mr. Daniels,

I had the supreme pleasure of seeing you in Torrington, CT last night. I grew up listening to your music - "Million Mile Reflections" was my second album ever. "Full Moon" was the third. "Black Ice" was a great nod to "Reflections" and "Rainbow Ride" - veiled though they were!

Anyway, I came in part to hear you, but also to introduce my two young sons to more of your catalog as they're both huge fans of "Devil". So - I saw the show, loved it, and came to the website to read up on the rest of the band. I was thrilled to see how Hayward has been with you all along. And then I stumbled upon the "Soap Box".

After "America", there's been little doubt about your politics. That said, after your "Redneck" intro last night, and this article, I think you've leap-frogged ahead to "Most Favored Artist" status for this fan. I have the utmost respect for your musicianship and intellect. How lucky we are to have you as a musician, and a voice of reason.

Please come back to Torrington again! We'll be there. :)

All the best,

Amen & Amen Charlie, it seems to me that the VA hospitals have become little more than drug pushers and it is not the fault of the dedicated men & women serving in them, it is the vipers in Washington and their cronies.
3 years ago I had a good friend who called and begged the doctor at the VA to give him a stronger pain pill because 4 weeks earlier he was told it would be 5 months before he would be able to see a surgeon for any type of relief. 10 minutes after he hangs up & his wife is on the phone with the VA trying herself to get some help, he takes a 12 ga into the garage & ends the pain.
By now, weather they admit it or not most people have come to the realization that BHO is a liar, he is a traitor, he hates the America that we love, he is a sodomite, an illegal alien. He may be God's judgment on America, for how can God Bless a Godless America, that murders innocent unborn babies, marries sodomites when God created Adam & Eve, does not allow the display of His 10 commandments, the list goes on & on. God Bless Plowboy

It's another day, another scandal for this administration.

The problem is that the veterans of this country should be placed in the upper crust of admiration from its citizenry. Unfortunately, those spaces are occupied by professional athletes, rappers and movie stars. As a nation, those who duly respect and appreciate the service of our esteemed veterans are in the decided minority, and nothing says that more than the president allowing the VA debacle to unfold.

Bottom line, America's priorities are backwards, and today's generation is under the impression that this hallowed ground we called America just fell from the sky one day, not forged by the blood of patriots. For shame!!
