Two Simple Steps To Solve The VA Crisis (Immediately)

I heard talking heads and politicians calling for one man’s resignation over the VA’s delayed treatment of our military men and women. I see them in front of any camera they can find, throwing around strong words of indignation and outrage concerning the scandal having been perpetrated, apparently for years, resulting in a minimum of 40 deaths to date.

I hear no politicians offering the immediate steps necessary to serve our veterans. Conservative pundits, yes. Politicians, no.

So how do we solve the V. A. problem and end the unnecessary loss of life?

First, immediately announce that all military personnel may start using the nearest hospital/medical facility at their convenience. Have the facilities start billing the government.

Second, put all current VA facilities up for auction. Remove all Government involvement with treatment, and let the government do what it does best. Pay the bills. Facilities will compete for the business of the Vets, keeping prices down. Government has proven it will not only pay for no results, but pay huge bonuses for obtaining no results for the most patients.

These steps will help to solve the immediate treatment problem.

Now for the corruption problem. Arrest any and all workers in any chain of command who knew of the secret lists. Charge them with criminal negligence, conspiracy to kill, theft under cover of authority, filing false instruments, and fraud. Recoup any bonuses already paid, and call for long jail sentences and crippling fines. Destroy this evil so no one ever again thinks of using their government position for anything but serving the people.

We the citizens are constantly being reminded when we fill out government forms that lying on the forms will lead to criminal charges. We demand the same for the criminals in government.

We’ve wasted a billion dollars so far setting up government websites and so called health-care exchanges. Rather than throw additional good billions after bad, give every vet a million dollar medical account to start with, for as many years as necessary. They can use that to get treatment or buy the best private policies.

Had we done the same with the alleged 40 million people in this country without healthcare, a million a year for ten years, we wouldn’t have been forced to sit idly by as 670 million dollars were stolen by Michelle Obama’s college roommate with her fraudulent healthcare website–and we’d still have the best health care system in the world.

Bill O’Reilly NOT Looking Out For You—Part II

Bill OReilly SC Bill O’Reilly NOT looking out for you—Part II

All full of his normal bombast and bluster on 4/11/13, Bill O’Reilly once again proved he hadn’t a grasp on the subject at hand: whether or not to legalize marijuana.

His plan is to put responsible adults or children who smoke into the legal system, destroying them and their families. He wants to keep feeding the corrupt legal system that thrives off of these “offenses”/freedoms (depending on your point of view).

He wants these draconian punishments because he feels that pot will destroy anyone trying it, a view responsible for turning more people into drug addicts than any drug. As soon as children realize we’ve been lying about the danger of smoking a joint, they figure we are lying about all other drugs and go on experimenting!

Never mind that numerous Presidents, Vice Presidents, Senators, and athletes at the top of their games have been pot smokers. Those people are special, and you are inferior; you need Bill O’Reilly to “look out for you” on your way to jail. We’d do much better with a truthful approach and try and convince children to avoid it until 21. Drive home the real dangers of hard drugs with the truth on our side.

He wants these punishments because he wants to keep pot from our children. He really said that! Right before he told his guest that you could find pot on any high school or college campus in the nation!

He claims that because we have alcohol problems in the nation, we should not legalize pot.

He skips over the logical conclusion from the preceding lessons with alcohol, that legalization would dry up the illegal and unethical distributors supplying our children, leaving us much more control. Or did I miss all the moonshiners selling alcohol to our kids?

He bemoans the fact that if legal, there would be signs telling everyone it is legal, and that will hurt our children. Really…can he really be so obtuse?

First of all, none of our public school graduates can read, so that’s not a problem (OK, just kidding, someone may read it to them.) Let me try something else:

Hey Bill, let me cue you in on a little secret you seem to know, but just won’t admit:

Society has already decided that pot laws are an open joke. Look at the movies and TV. It isn’t glorified, but it is certainly accepted and condoned.

Pot isn’t really illegal’ it is just darn inconvenient to get if you don’t know anyone in high school or college! Anyone who wants pot can get it; there is no crowd of people waiting to try it when legal. Nothing in this society will change (except some lawyers will have to get an honest job as opposed to shaking down families because little Johnny got caught with a doobie), and taxpayers will stop picking up the tab for prosecuting free Americans in their harmless pursuit of  Life, Liberty, and Happiness.

Recreational pot smoking should be a personal or family matter and not the business of the police or courts.

Bill O’Reilly NOT “looking Out For You”!

Bill OReilly SC Bill O’Reilly NOT “looking out for you”!

 

In a diatribe I feel was not new to O’Reilly, he actually postulated that gun registration of responsible citizens would reduce gun crime by criminals. Even when it was pointed out that none of the recent shootings would have been stopped by his dangerous sophomoric suggestion, he stood fast.

He points to Chicago, claiming that gun registration would help because if a criminal was caught in a(n unconstitutional) “stop and frisk” with an unregistered gun, they’d be charged. It’s already illegal for these gangbangers to have guns. Laws won’t work if  not applied, and Chicago does not apply the laws already on the books.  How would another law matter to people with no respect for the lives of others? Take the guns out of Chicago and every other progressive nightmare city, and the death will go on.

There are over 310 million guns in America, as of 2009; why are the guns only killing people in Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC, and other Progressive enclaves?

No, the only way to lower the death rate is to impact the life of the criminal to such an extent that it is no longer worthwhile to pick up the weapon.

A mandatory 5/10/20/DEATH system of PUNISHMENT OF CRIMINALS will work much better than a punitive, unconstitutional registration of the legal weapons owned by responsible citizens.

If caught with a weapon you’re not legally allowed to own or carry, you go to a work farm for 5 years. No one in the community has to register their weapons.

If you brandish a legal or illegal weapon in the commission of a crime, you go to jail for 10 years. No one in the community has to register their weapons.

If you fire a legal or illegal weapon in the commission of a crime, and any type of mental or physical trauma or injury is experienced by anyone, you go to jail for 20 years. No one in the community has to register their weapons.

If you are convicted on any level of voluntary murder, you are put to death, publicly, at high noon, in an outdoor field in the community of your crime.

It is time to celebrate the removal of the killers from our midst and to educate and save the survivors. It is time to stop punishing others for the actions of a rising progressive cult.

Progressive doctrine has cheapened the lives of others in the eyes of captives born into the failed liberal experiments these anti-American “rulers” have condemned them to. They are the fatherless children of government entitlement, getting everything they need from others, watching babies being disposed of in record numbers through abortions, and being indoctrinated with self-esteem education.

Nothing short of the GUARANTEED threat of their losing their own freedom will make them think twice about pulling the trigger, or even picking up the gun.

Nothing short of attending a public execution celebrating the victory over evil by the community will start teaching a respect for the equality of the lives of others.

Woulda, Shoulda, Coulda In Washington And Elsewhere

us capitol buildiing Woulda, shoulda, coulda in Washington and elsewhere

We should only get mail delivered on Mondays and Thursdays.

The Conservatives in the House should be drafting a bill concerning the number of taxpayer-funded vacations any future president gets (and a cap on costs over which the President is responsible.) Going to Camp David or their private home for extended times are fine, as they are considered “working vacations”. High priced hotels and lavish multiple, separate family vacations on the taxpayer dime must have some restrictions. Even the Royal Family in Britain has a set allowance. There is no reason our President’s (and other elected officials’ perks) should be unlimited or undefined.

No politician other than the president should receive any lifetime pension from the taxpayers above $100,000 a year.

A definition of the duties of the unelected first lady is due. A cap on their taxpayer-funded activities is long overdue. These women are not elected, and there is no oversight of their spending. Their husbands should be personally responsible for the cost of their hobbies, not the public. If first ladies wish to spend taxpayer monies, let them get elected to do so.

The American Psychiatric Association should be held accountable for the death and damage their illogical and dangerous decisions cause. Public school education has been sacrificed and destroyed by their PC “global self-esteem” BS.Very expensive experimental psychotropic drugs rewire the brain and create addicts who must keep taking the drug for the rest of their lives. Problems are not solved with a satisfied patient ending therapy. No, the drug companies and the venal frauds bilk the insurance companies for the overpriced medications you must take for the rest of your life.

With one exception, every mass shooting was perpetrated by someone on anti-depressants or some type of mood-altering psychotropic drugs.

American society as a whole has been severely damaged by the illogical assertion by the APA that homosexuality is a “normal” lifestyle, against all evidence to the contrary. Feeding into the fantasy world of these pitiable mentally ill people, we now stand at a point where this tiny minority (3.5%) is trying to convince the rest of the world, and forcibly indoctrinate our children (with the Progressive enemies of America in our Government helping them at every step) into accepting their delusional and dangerous lifestyle.

Churches and religious organizations should no longer recognize State marriage licenses. They should be free to marry anyone they choose, according to their beliefs; and it is none of the State’s business. It is the ultimate “Free Speech” and “Religious Freedom” issue and should be forced to the courts by the religious organizations. Regular business partnership agreements will cover the inheritance, visitation, and every other “right” now granted by the State recognition through the marriage contract. There should be no tax breaks for anyone based on whether or not they are married.

Our President’s (and, by extension, our) taxpayer-funded sponsorship of the terrorism of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is a direct and active threat against the UAE immediately, and the free world eventually.

On a personal note, we all face different obstacles and experiences in life. The death of a parent or loved one can quickly put all other matters into perspective. I want to thank everyone for their prayers and kind words concerning my mom’s passing. They gave me the strength to reorganize and go on living…and get married!

“Law Enforcement” Officials Are No Less Dangerous Than The Public At Large

Cop SC “Law enforcement” officials are no less dangerous than the public at large

A news story was released stating that a number of gun manufacturers around the country will no longer sell to Law Enforcement officers or government agencies within the states that have the most stringent weapons restrictions against their citizens’ rights to own similar weapons.

Upon reading this story, as well the comments, this was my answer to one particular comment, whose author was worried about “Law Enforcement” officers and officials being punished for the decisions of various government toadies.

This country has gone to hell since our local police were turned from “Peace Officers” into “Law Enforcement Officers”. We no longer have a police force concerned about the local citizenry; we have a roving occupying force of heavily-armed tax collectors on constant alert for our wallets and freedoms.

As a member of a generational police family, I can tell you without equivocation that there is nothing special about my family members that makes them more able to handle their Second Amendment rights than anyone else in my community.

As to the basic British concept that brought us our police, this century-long experiment with a police force to protect us has failed. The police are more worried about maintaining their perks and benefits than the deaths on the street. They cannot be everywhere we are to protect us. We have all heard the saying “Police, minutes away when seconds count!”

It is time for all legal citizens to learn to protect themselves and their families through personal and community-endorsed training and take our streets and wasted tax money from this out-of-control occupying force. According to the FBI/DOJ Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics, Law Enforcement commits more homicides, assaults, and sexual assaults against the populace than citizens commit against each other. And only marginally less crime on the whole! This is not to say that all Law Enforcement officers are criminals carrying guns. Neither is it right for them to say all citizens with guns are criminals.

We would all be safer today had the criminal Law Enforcement Officer Wyatt Earp been shot dead as a traitor to America and the Constitution as soon as he declared people in his city had no Second Amendment rights.

We have created a corrupt class of super-citizen that needs to be stripped of its position of superiority.  And we must take back responsibility both for our own safety and that of the community. We live here. Give us back the right to protect ourselves. Within a very short time, the recidivist crime rate would plummet, and the streets of ALL communities in America would be safe to walk, 24 hours a day.

Kudos to these gun companies for their stance in defense of Americans and the Constitution.
