Because I am a “lifer” in the military, I’ve seen the impact of a president more than many of you can imagine

by George Roof, Chief Master Sergeant (Retired), USA

Because I am a “lifer” in the military, I’ve seen the impact of a president more than many of you can imagine. I enlisted with LBJ and saw just what a Democrat clusterflock was all about. I went to Vietnam and saw how we were constantly and incessantly bombarded with micromanagement from Washington that got thousands of military people killed. I sometimes wonder if I’ll get to heaven, but if I go to hell, I’m sure I’ll still be a few hundred floors above that bastard Robert McNamara , LBJ, John Kerry, Jane Fonda, and yes, even the “hero” John McCain.

After Johnson “abdicated” rather than having his ass waxed, I lived through Nixon who was hawkish but allowed the generals (and there WERE a few real generals back then versus now) run the show. He was so out of touch that he never knew North Vietnam was about to surrender when the Paris Accord was presented.

Only God could help us after Gerald Ford was beaten by Jimmy Peanuts who’d been funded by Saudi money. The military was turned into Section 8, and even the Whitehouse suffered the austerity.

Then the light began to shine and Ronald Reagan swept into the fray. He notly loved the country and the military, they loved him back. Esprit d’corps was off the scale during his presidency. The Liberals were slowly turning into socialists, however, and about this time all the draft dodgers of the 1960’s who’d been given amnesty by Jimmy Peanuts were turning out college graduates with degrees in socialism.

Bush 1 was an enigma from the CIA, and though he never did much either way, he NEVER DID MUCH EITHER WAY.

Welcome to Bill Clinton. Clinton spent most of his two terms wagging the dog and creating the Oral Office, sending a bomber to blow up Quaddafi’s tent and killing a goat or two, while allowing the UN to set up the infamous Black Hawk Down situation. He made history by becoming only the second president to be impeached.

I actually felt sorry for Bush 2. He was doomed to infamy from the start. He thought most of America was still the rah rah patriots of WWII when they were simply socialists waiting to feed him to the sharks.

Then there came the Manchurian Candidate with a faked (OK Democrats, let’s say “of questionable origin” to assuage your PC brains) birth certificate, who’d gotten a free ride through college under a foreign student exemption, and whose college records and complete life history had been sealed. (We know more about Thomas Jefferson’s bastard children than we do about Obama, Michelle, OR their two kids.) >From his inaugural address, he slandered America and within days had begun to encourage dissention of the races as well as slandering police who “acted stupidly.” That was mild to the crap that would come in doubling the national debt from what had been built by ALL THE PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS COMBINED, feeding us bullspit about how Muslims built this country, and nationalizing American industries. Fueled by George Soros’ money and using the Air Force fleet as his personal charters, he appointed malcontents and traitors into positions of authority. He trashed the Constitution by installing “czars” (interesting he chose a title like that) to bypass Congressional authority. By that time, Congress was completely corrupt on both sides of the aisle. No one had balls to impeach this charlatan.

Mysteriously, the lone outspoken conservative Supreme Court Justice suddenly dies in his sleep at an Obama pal’s hunting lodge and the Supreme Court is evenly split. Finally, Congress shows some balls and rejects Obama’s nomination. The Libtards aren’t worried because the fix is in. Soros has paid demonstrators to cause turmoil at all the Republican gatherings, Obama concedes that illegal aliens should vote as they won’t be prosecuted, and Soros-manufactured voting machines are caught switching votes in certain precincts. Hillary has cheated her way to the nomination and her lies are completely ignored by the brainwashed minions of sycophants who follow her.

But a shocking thing happened on the way to the forum

Middle America had had enough and although the pollsters and the pipers tried to convince them not even to bother to vote, they were fed up with the denizens of the swamp. It was time. Florida was designated a “swing” state ignoring that all those old retirees living in St. Petersburg, and the fed up Cuban Americans of Miami weren’t interested in their platform. Ohio and Pennsylvania, where coal production was blacklisted and where Obama had ridiculed them for “clinging to their Bibles and their guns,” lay awaiting this supposed “landslide” Hillary vote and creamed it.

The Socialist world of the Democratic Party disintegrated. An American who expressed unbridled love of country and respect for police, firemen, and military steamrolled across the heartland and the liberals realized their scheme was trashed. A CONSTITUTIONALIST would be nominated to the Supreme Court and if the hag who’d claimed to retire if Trump were elected would actually leave, the Supreme Court would have a massive majority of CONSTITUTIONALISTS for the next 40-50 years.

Now, the same party who’d ridiculed Trump on his comments about the election being rigged, started screaming that the election was rigged. They even advocated having the election repeated. They created mobs that burned and pillaged, stopped traffic, threatened murder, battery and rape of Trump supporters, and became the anarchists that the socialist dream thrives upon. They run like castrated pigs for safe zones and use diaper pins as their national symbol.

This is exactly what happens when political correctness takes over and participation trophies are awarded to everyone. They can’t conceive how disgusting and subservient they have become. Donald Trump may NOT be the best person for the job, but he’s such a welcome respite from the candy-assed whimps who’ve been running the swamp that it’s refreshing to see. At the very least, Donald Trump derailed the Socialist train and bought us precious time. If he only does half of what he’s promised, we’ll still be legions ahead of where Obama has dragged us. Already countries who held us in contempt are lining up to be found in the favor of America.

So for you liberal lurkers and you half-assed fence-sitters, kiss off. You had your big hurrah and now your party is over. For you staunch Republicans in office, don’t gloat so much yourselves. You’ve been put on notice by the American people that we’re fed up with ALL YOU BASTARDS and if you don’t start putting America first, you do so at your own peril. You might want to buy a copy of George McGovern’s autobiography and see how shocking and humbling it can be for a professional politician to have to try to find legitimate work once he falls from grace. This election was pure, unadulterated AMERICAN. Hillary got beaten and AMERICA WON THE ELECTION. You can claim he’s not “your president” all you want, but unless you forfeit your American citizenship, YES HE IS!!!! Go cry a river some place they need water.

Bad News For Trump Hating Liberal ESPN Just Announced

As sports cable network ESPN continues to bleed cash, another round of layoffs is about to hit that will reportedly take out some well-known reporters and on-air faces.

Reports say that ESPN management is being tasked with cutting “tens of millions” of dollars of staff salary from its payroll, meaning that on-air personalities are on the chopping block, according to Sports Illustrated.

From Breitbart

“Today’s fans consume content in many different ways, and we are in a continuous process of adapting to change and improving what we do. Inevitably, that has consequences for how we utilize our talent,” ESPN said in a statement. “We are confident that ESPN will continue to have a roster of talent that is unequaled in sports.”

The network is reportedly set to buyout some contracts, and fire writers and behind the camera staffers. The slashing of staff will likely be completed by June, insiders say.

The news of the massive cuts comes on the heels of reports that ESPN is losing millions per year.

Once a sports powerhouse, ESPN has gone from must-see-TV for millions of sports fans to a financial boondoggle for owner Disney with the network losing up to 10,000 subscribers a day, reports said last month.

“A floundering ESPN, with rising costs and declining viewership, continued to sink Disney’s DIS, +0.24% financial results during its fiscal first quarter,” MarketWatch.com reported

New Poll SHOCKS “Mainstream” Anti-Trump Media

Fifty-five percent of the public told TIPP that they are “weary from the media’s persistently negative coverage of President Trump,” and 54 percent say the news media “has assumed the role of the opposition party, constantly opposing the president and his policies at every turn,” according to an article in Investors Business Daily, which sponsored the TIPP poll.

The result supports the argument by Steve Bannon, Trump’s strategist, who described the establishment media in January as “the opposition party.”

According to IBD;

Not surprisingly, Republicans overwhelmingly hold these views (88% say they’re tired of the [media’s] relentless negativity), but the media’s attacks are also turning off independents (55% of whom say they’re weary of the negative coverage) and moderates (54% of whom are weary). Most also believe that the press has assumed the role of the opposition party.

The poll also showed the public backs Trump’s ‘Hire American’ immigration policies;

The poll found that 57% back Trump’s plan to hire 10,000 more immigration agents; 58% support the deportation of illegal immigrations charged with a crime, even if they haven’t been convicted; 53% back Trump’s call to withhold federal aid to “sanctuary cities.”

Amid media hostility, Trump’s Feb. 28 successful speech to the joint session of Congress also boosted his support, according to the poll.

Of the 653 surveyed before the speech, just 39.5% approved of the job he is doing. Of the 256 polled after the speech, his approval rating climbed to 46.1% — a 6.6 point bump. His disapproval numbers went from 54.5% before to 47.5% after.

HEALTH INSURANCE REFORM AND THE AMERICAN ENTREPRENEUR

By John F. Di Leo –

Part One of the House GOP’s official plan to repair/undo/fix/replace Obamacare was released this week, to utter shock and dismay. The authors say that everything America needs will be in the full packet, so it’s unfair to judge Part One without seeing the rest. That may be true, so here, let’s just look at the big picture, whether it’s one part, two parts, three or ten.

America had a healthcare financing problem a decade ago. Conservative solutions, such as malpractice/tort reform, extending the tax-deductibility that employer-provided health insurance gets to individual policies too, and closing the borders to reduce the massive healthcare drain by indigent illegal aliens, were never given a chance. Instead, the Democrats, on straight party votes and through illegal contortions of the lawmaking process, forced through a costly and destructive nationalization of healthcare financing.

As was predicted, it was an utter disaster. Few government programs have ever been so universally hated as Obamacare.

So today – with a Republican majority in the House and Senate, along with a Republican in the White House, American has an opportunity to undo it at last… to both undo the disaster that is Obamacare, and also implement the fixes that we knew were needed all along, but never got the chance to make before.

The Big Picture

But health insurance – and the healthcare financing process in general – is only part of the economic task faced by the new administration. It’s a big part of it, but it still exists within a bigger challenge;

We are trying to climb out of a ten year long recession. Economists don’t like to admit that, because the formal definition is two successive quarters of negative growth, and we’ve only suffered that here and there.

But in fact, when you consider job losses, inflation, general contraction of manufacturing, and the continued growth of the critical employment measure – people of working age outside the workforce” – it is undeniable; the economy has been rotten for a decade. It may not have been a recession to economists, but it’s been a recession to human beings.

For a decade now, the US economy generally produced around 200,000 jobs a month, most of them lousy.

By that, we mean that – unlike past eras of manufacturing growth and general expansion – in this period, too many of the new jobs are dead-end or near dead-end jobs. A starting job on an assembly line may pay poorly at first, but it may lead to a role as team lead, supervisor, manager, foreman, plant manager. A starting job at a coffee shop or retail counter, by comparison, may be a great, convenient part time job for a student, but has far less potential for career growth.

The problem with the Obama economy is that even the tepid number of jobs it did produce included too many of the latter type, and too few of the former.

We desperately need to make up for this ten year disaster.

Since healthcare financing was part of the problem before 2010 – and it became an incredibly bigger part of the problem after passage of Obamacare (the ACA) – fixing this particular mess is clearly a critical first step in delivering the economic boom that the market and the voters are all expecting, and in fact have already baked into their forecasts. We cannot let them down!

We need the U.S. economy to produce 20 million more jobs, including a couple million startups and millions of part time and full time independent consultants, during this presidential term.

… and we need most of the many American manufacturers who have moved production lines overseas during the past 20 years to finally start moving them back.

Somehow, the Obamacare repair/undo/fix/replace project (again, whether it’s one bill or a set of several) needs to do everything it can – and it can do much! – to advance these critical goals.

Has the Congressional leadership looked at it that way? Are they just focusing on reducing the obvious, direct pain of Obamacare as fast as possible? Or are they consciously working to use the Obamacare correction to undo the damage that both the Obamacare era and the pre-Obamacare era have done to our economy?

Job Creation and the Monkey-Wrench

Let’s go back in time, and think about how health insurance costs affected decision making a decade ago, when we thought we had it so bad…

Ten years ago, let’s say you wanted to start your own startup or independent consultancy.

Leaving a job that had insurance to branch out on one’s own, one had to plan on paying $50 to $100 a month for a single policy, or – for a breadwinner – a couple hundred a month for a family policy. Such plans are necessary, to cover basic healthcare needs if something big happened, and ensure decent pricing for normal things (rather than paying “rack rates”).

Such affordable programs (somewhat high copay, somewhat high deductible, but basically fine for most people) are gone now. They’re just GONE. Obamacare has thrown a monkey-wrench into the start-up society.

Thanks to Obamacare – and its laundry lists of mandated coverage, its worthlessly micromanaged exchanges and gold/silver/bronze plans of inflated coverage, that insists on paying for Ralphie to turn into Mabel, and funding abortions for 70 year old women and birth control for nuns – health insurance today is horribly, unbearably overpriced.

We’ve spent seven years rightly talking about what this does to the individual stuck with the plan… but we haven’t talked enough about what it does to the natural urge of the entrepreneurial – the small business minded American minority – to branch out on their own.

The Obamacare era’s outlandish pricing and awful product (in most cases, we pay more than ever for insurance that can’t even be used, because of the high deductibles and lack of providers) have scared Americans out of entrepreneurship.

Obamacare literally traps employed people in their current jobs. Starting up your own business takes considerable energy and courage to begin with; this massive corruption of the healthcare aspect of American life has added a massive weight to the already stiff burden of the American start-up.

People working for big companies, the very people who used to start their own businesses, are now unable to do so, because the insurance costs don’t let them take that additional risk.

And what America needs most of all right now is an influx of new businesses, of courageous new entrepreneurs to rent offices and start inventing and selling and hiring… exactly as entrepreneurs always did in America, before the Obamacare era.

This is what has been forgotten in the recent debate… perhaps because, as usual, small businessmen aren’t heard the way that big businessmen are in our society, and perhaps because the future entrepreneur has no voice, only the past entrepreneur does.

Obamacare – as a whole, not just in the employer mandate, but AS A WHOLE – is utterly destructive to small business. Over the seven years since that hellish March 20 when it was illegally passed and signed, the number of startups has plummeted in Amerca.

We need to terminate Obamacare to get back what we had 8 years ago, to begin with.

It’s a critical first step, not just for fixing healthcare, but for starting the economic boom we so desperately need. But then… we need the corrections – the simple, logical corrections – that we knew were needed at the time, but which the Democrats refused to allow us to do.

For example:

Tort reform, to reduce the cost that malpractice insurance places on health care pricing.
Use of the Commerce Clause to allow insurance companies to sell plans across state lines.
Extend tax-deductibility of health insurance to individually-purchased plans, just as employer-provided insurance is.
Crack down on crime, particularly the drug gang crime of the inner cities and the border jumping practice of tens of millions of illegal aliens, which fill our hospitals with costly patients who can’t pay for their coverage.
This is just a start. There’s more, of course, much more. And they’ve been on the Republican reformers’ drawing boards now for eight years, disallowed from seeing the light of day.

But they are necessary. Because a simple tweak of Obamacare to reduce the most egregious errors isn’t enough. Removing the mandate, dropping a couple of the taxes, but leaving the structure in place would only help a bit on the surface, while leaving the leviathan in place to keep on holding America back from the recovery we so desperately need.

There is a huge barricade in place, retarding the natural American impulse for job creation and economic advancement. And until that barricade is removed, our economy cannot recover.

THIS IS WHY THE DEMOCRATS ARE PISSED OFF

Biased Media Trying to Hide the Truth of Town Hall Protests

As we’ve discussed here before, the line between liberal, biased media and fair, ethical journalism isn’t always as cut-and-dried as the phrase “fake news” makes it seem. While there are examples of journalists who twist the facts so egregiously that they wind up publishing fiction, the media’s tricks are usually much more subtle. They’ve let their hatred of Trump get the better of them in recent months, but they usually understand that they have to protect the illusion of objectivity if they want to maintain the trust of their readers.

So they play little games with the facts. You can’t necessarily accuse them of lying…but let’s just say, they know what they’re doing.

These town hall protests greeting Republicans all over the country last week are a prime example of “fake news” wrapped in a blanket of truth. It is a fact that these protests are happening. It is a viable news story, both locally and nationally. This is something that is shaking up the political world, and it would be journalistic malpractice not to cover it.

Here’s the problem, though. If you get all of your news from the usual mainstream media sources, you would have a very skewed idea about these chaotic scenes.

From USA Today: “Riled up by a Trump administration agenda targeting immigrants and Obamacare and concerned about Russian influence, voters have been trying to get their representatives’ attention in sometimes-rowdy town hall meetings this week.”

Later in the article: “In Arizona, Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Republicans, said they plan to meet with constituents.”

Later: “Sen. Chuck Grassley […] held a tumultuous town hall Monday in Iowa Falls with constituents shouting questions about Russia and health care.”

Do you see the trick?

We’re using USA Today as an example, but they stand for all the rest. In story after story, the news media is trying very hard to avoid telling their readers that these people are liberal activists. Whether they’re paid or unpaid, organized or organic, is beside the point. The point is that by using neutral terms like “constituents,” the media is trying to give you the illusion that these protest crowds are a healthy mix of Republicans and Democrats who are suddenly turning on the people they voted for. And if you don’t think that’s what they’re doing, just imagine how they would characterize these protests if Hillary Clinton had won and people stormed into Democrat town halls demanding answers. You would NEVER see them referred to as “voters” or “constituents.” They would exclusively use terms like “conservatives” or “Trump supporters” or “radical right-wing agitators.” If you doubt this, feel free to look back at the way the media covered the Tea Party.

Thankfully, there are still reporters out there with a sense of integrity. Even in the liberal swamp of MSNBC, we got to see Hallie Jackson pry the truth out of Ted Leiu, a Democratic congressman from California.

“These are organic, grassroots protests you see from across the country,” Leiu said.

“But congressman, there are groups though,” Jackson said. “I mean, you don’t deny that there are groups of more liberal activists who are helping to organize some of these protests at town halls?”

“Well, yes, there are groups that are organizing people to show up at town halls,” he admitted, “but these are people who are constituents of these members of Congress.”

That’s fine. No one’s trying to deny their personhood or their right to protest. But if we’re going to pretend they aren’t partisan – that they’re just politically-neutral “constituents” – then how about some balanced reporting? If 300 “constituents” show up to a town hall, that means thousands stayed home. That’s a pretty strong endorsement of the Republican agenda, no?

You’ve got to watch these folks in the media like a hawk. Their deceit is often beyond anything a simple “fact check” can find…and that’s what makes it so effective.

Chicago Reveals How Evil the Democrat Party Has Become

by Warner Todd Huston

Two separate incidents concerning memorial street signs in Chicago encapsulates perfectly how warped, truly immoral, and evil the Democrat Party in the U.S.A. has become.
The City of Chicago is one of the most dangerous cities in America, there is simply no doubt. Last year there were a shocking 4,379 citizens shot and 716 shot and killed — and another 84 murdered by other means — in the city run by former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. Upon its conclusion, it was found that 2016 was the city’s bloodiest year in 60 years.
If that wasn’t bad enough, 2017 is already shaping up to be worse than last year. In the first two months of the year the city has already seen 512 total shootings with 98 killed plus an additional 5 murdered by other means. But according to the Chicago Sun-Times, February of 2016 ended with 187 shootings and only 43 murders.

Chicago isn’t just dangerous in the city’s worst areas, either. The Windy City’s trains are fraught with violence, there are roving gangs of teens attacking shoppers in the city’s shopping districts, there are attacks on joggers on the lake front, children being murdered, dismembered, and thrown in a city lagoon — all these incidents occurred outside the so-called “dangerous” areas of the city.

So, yes, Chicago is a terrible place for people to live. The Chicago Police and especially the city government have proven to be utterly worthless allowing citizens to be murdered and maimed by the thousands every year.

And the numbers of those leaving the city shows that at least some of Chicago’s residents know it. As 2016 came to an end, the Chicago Tribune reported that Illinois lost more residents in 2016 than any other state. And more to the point, Chicago lost more population than any other U.S. city.

But all this didn’t happen by accident. It happened because the city’s government is destroying the city and are doing so because the Democrat Party is evil.

And while it may at first seem trivial, two recent street sign decisions makes the evil of Democrats explicit.

The first street sign decision occurred in October of last year when the city council led by Mayor Emanuel began the process of removing the honorary street signs re-naming a portion of Wabash Avenue for Donald J. Trump. The signs were erected after Trump built his tremendous Trump Tower in Chicago.

But as the last election campaign neared its end, the city council felt that during that campaign Donald Trump was too mean to deserve the honor of having a street sign named after him.

“His divisive comments about various segments of Chicago society, whether you’re Latino or another minority, an immigrant, a woman, that in and of itself is offensive,” 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly said last year. “But his decision to drag us into this campaign and mischaracterize and paint a very distorted caricature of Chicago is a mistake and we reserve these honorary street signs for special Chicagoans who have lifted up this city and move us forward.”

Some city fathers even tried to claim that Trump was a terrorist.
By December, only a month before Donald Trump took the oath of office to become our 45th president, the Chicago City Council removed the last of the Trump street signs.
This move to dump the Trump street signs may just seem like typical, petty, liberals acting like petulant children. But what the city did only two months later in contrast proves that liberals aren’t merely petty — which they are, of course — but are evil.

So, Trump’s signs were removed because Trump is a terrorist, he’s mean, he’s loud, and he’s a bad guy. OK, fine. There is much reason to feel negatively concerning Trump’s behavior. “Evil,” is an idiotic overstatement, granted, but Trump has done and said things that are easily disliked. Maybe he doesn’t deserve a street even though he is president of the United States.

But even as Trump’s signs were removed, early in February of this year the city decided to bestow an honorary street sign upon one Oscar Lopez Rivera.

Who is this Rivera fellow? Why, no less than a real terrorist. That’s right, Oscar Lopez Rivera is the man who founded the domestic terror group FALN.

The Puerto Rican separatist FALN terror group is responsible for killing six people and perpetrating some 130 bombings and terror attacks on U.S. soil between 1974 and 1983 all in an effort to get Puerto Rico to become an autonomous nation free of control by the United States.

Rivera was jailed for his terrorist activities but had his sentence commuted as President Obama prepared to leave office early this year. Since the commutation, twenty-sixth Ward Alderman Robert Maldonado decided to propose that a three-block stretch of North Luis Munoz Marin Drive be named after the terrorist. Naturally, the City Council moved quickly to approve the proposal.

Shockingly, the city approved the sign despite the plea from the son of one of Rivera’s victims.
Joe Connor, the son of Frank Connor who was killed by a FALN bombing in 1975, was disgusted by the city’s move and published an op-ed int the Chicago Sun-Times to plead for the city to deny the honor to the terrorist.

“He is a sworn terrorist,” Joe Connor said. “He was convicted of bombings in Chicago that did injure people. He tried to escape from prison with machine guns and plastic explosives where he was gonna kill the guards. … And Chicago is gonna put up a sign in his honor?”

“The idea that people will walk by and see this street sign and think that Oscar Lopez was some sort of great person — it’s diabolical,” Connor said. “The world is upside down here. What’s next for Chicago, bin Laden Boulevard? Charles Manson Court? This is worse than a disgrace. It is sinister. It’s a direct insult to my father’s life.”

Worse, Rivera has never once renounced his past terrorist actions. But the city named the street after him anyway.

So, let’s recap: Rahm Emanuel and his quislings removed a street sign honoring the president of the United States because he’s a bad guy, but raised a street sign to a real, unrepentant domestic terrorist who is responsible for the death of Americans and the injury of dozens more because… wait? He’s a good guy?

This proves decisively that Democrats are immoral monsters. They are celebrating a real, unrepentant terrorist while calling a man whom they merely disagree with politically a terrorist.
This is the modern Democrat Party writ large.
Finally, I have to note that the suburbs surrounding Chicago are no better. In the lily white, rich northern suburb of New Trier Township, the local high school is holding a civil rights seminar day where all the white kids will be told they are bad people merely because they are white and will be exposed to radical “speakers” who will teach them that the U.S. is and always has been an evil country. And even after a special school board meeting to discuss this “civil rights day” which was called after the controversial ideas were made public, the seminars are still set to continue.

This is all due to the unethical, corrupt, and moral bankruptcy of the Democrat Party.

Trump VA Secretary Makes A STUNNING And Much Welcomed Announcement For Veterans

President Donald Trump spoke frequently on the campaign trail about reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs so those who served this country could get the best care possible.

As with almost every other campaign promise, Trump is following through on this one. Trump’s VA Secretary, David Shulkin, has released a proposal aimed at expanding the availability of treatment for veterans.

From Conservative Tribune

Shulkin outlined his plan on Sunday while speaking to the Disabled American Veterans annual conference, saying he wants to do away with the so-called “40-mile, 30-day rule” that limits where veterans can receive treatment, Stars and Stripes reported.

Currently the rule states that veterans must wait 30 days, or live 40 miles away from a VA clinic, before they can seek help outside the VA system.

Shulkin wants to do away with these limits and allow veterans to seek private health care if they so choose, with relatively few restrictions placed on that.

This isn’t full-blown privatization of the VA, but an action that would allow veterans to choose where they want to receive their care. The government would no longer be able to dictate this.

Disabledveterans.org noted that Shulkin’s other priorities included beefing up employee accountability and finally doing something about the high rate of suicides among veterans.

Missouri has no illegal’s

Missouri has no illegal’s; go figure… Shouldn’t the other states do the same? Missouri’s approach to the problem of illegal immigration appears to be more advanced, sophisticated, strict and effective than anything to date in Arizona . Does the White House appreciate what Missouri has done? So, why doesn’t Missouri receive attention? Answer: There are no illegal’s in Missouri to demonstrate.

The “Show Me” state has again shown us how it should be done. There needs to be more publicity and exposure regarding what Missouri has done. Please pass this around.

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri . In November, 2008, nearly 90% voted in favor! Thus, English became the official language for ALL governmental activity in Missouri . No individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.

In 2008, a measure was passed that required the Missouri Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform federal authorities if the person is found to be in Missouri illegally. Missouri law enforcement officers receive specific training with respect to enforcement of federal immigration laws.

In Missouri, illegal immigrants do NOT have access to taxpayer benefits such as food stamps or health care through Missouri Health NET.

In 2009, a measure was passed that ensures Missouri ‘s public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States .

In Missouri all post-secondary institutions of higher education are required to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. Of Higher Education that they have NOT knowingly awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States .

So, while Arizona has made national news for its new law, it is important to remember, Missouri has been far more proactive in addressing this horrific problem. Missouri has made it clear that illegal immigrants are NOT WELCOME in the state and they will NOT receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers.

DON’T DELETE THIS AMERICA . KEEP IT GOING UNTIL WE GET ALL 50 STATES TO COMPLY!

PA School DUMPS Michelle Obama Lunch Program….Then Look What Happens

A Pennsylvania high school’s decision to eschew former first lady Michelle Obama’s widely panned lunch program in favor of a free-market alternative has proven to be a great success this year.

 

Previously plagued by long wait lines, low participation rates, calorically inadequate meals, overfull trash bins and a burgeoning budget deficit, Penn-Trafford High School’s lunch program is now a hit with students and administrators alike.

From Western Journalism

“We’ve lost, to date, about $40,000 worth of reimbursement, but our sales are up about $50,000 over last year,” district business manager Brett Lago explained to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Likewise, the participation rate has climbed from 25 to 45 percent, while the trash bins have grown far less cluttered.

“The trash cans were always full, sometimes overflowing,” recalled senior Brianna Lander. “You don’t see that now. People would go up to the snack line and get random junk food, where now you can get an actual meal and eat it.”

Speaking with the Tribune-Review, junior Chase Zavarella attributed the lunch program’s success to the free-market notion of choice.

“You get to choose what you want instead of being sort of funneled in and only having one choice,” she noted. “I think everyone is happier with the new selection.”

Obama’s lunch program is based on the belief that children lack the wisdom to make quality choices in the lunchroom. As such, they allegedly need cookie-cutter programs to direct their eating habits, regardless of their varying ages, sizes and genders.

“(Y)ou can’t say that a 300-pound football player and a 90-pound cheerleader have the same (dietary) needs on a daily basis,” Lago remarked.
