Archives for category: Veterans support all candidates 2012!

Last time around, President Trump may have benefited from an anti-Obama/Hillary energy that is gone now.

People sold on his positive potential have had time to find out if Mexico would pay for a wall or if The Troops would be coming home from undeclared/unwon wars that never end.

Farmers have felt the impact of trade tensions.

Various companies, their employees and families too.

Looks like there’s some selling to do.

American popular and political culture insists on dividing people up into groups- then assigning a separate value to each group. Surely, members of a specific group would think, act & vote as one.

Meaningless group identity update:

Not just veterans. Political experts will also be reaching out to latino, black, and women voters.

Don’t forget this nation’s backbone:

Filipino Tilt-a-Whirl operators.

What about bus drivers- who do they endorse?

 

Will veterans take a look at what stays the same no matter what political party or personality is in power?

The people who run both major parties & the conventions that nominate presidential candidates are OK with ongoing, undeclared/unwon wars overseas, the drug war racket, & a secretive, wasteful and ineffective Dept. of Homeland Security.

Ditto for the TV networks that host presidential debates & ask scripted questions of candidates.

The majority of voters will align with one of these two parties.

Recommendation:

Phase out decades of undeclared/unwon wars overseas.

Elected officials preside over waste & decades of ongoing, undeclared wars overseas- then tell us there is no more money for the traditional DOD military healthcare benefits that were used to entice people to stay for multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Google:

& see where savings are available to pay fees for healthcare earned by people who volunteered to go to far away places and maybe never come back again.

Make us proud guys-

Army Corps of Engineers can’t produce $1 billion of fuel receipts in Iraq

“The total amount of funds unaccounted for has now reached a staggering $7 billion, officials say — and they warn that the Iraqi government is likely to demand at least some of that money back.”

DOD Inspector General finds $900M stockpile of Stryker parts

 

Many people have risked their ass in far off lands to keep terrorists from visiting the homeland.

Love to see a reporter ask The Joint Chiefs of Staff how all that can be justified while the US Dept. of Homeland Security is unable keep heroin out of the US.

Think terrorists are smart enough to pose as drug traffickers- then cross into the US free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, etc.

Cheers on military forces that are not in the habit of winning decades of undeclared wars in distant lands.

Credits The Troops with defending American rights and freedoms- as if the US Armed Forces function as some sort of giant civil rights organization.

Brags about freedom- then goes with a control freak approach on individual liberty.

 

Lies about the stories associated with federal holidays.

Celebrates independence from a powerful central government.

Tries to make people feel guilty for not properly observing some federal holidays.

 

Talks about legalizing marijuana while including restrictions that leave prohibition and the drug war in place for adults age 18-20, those who want to grow a plant at home, possess more than an ounce, or possess marijuana from non-state sanctioned outlets.

 

Talks about placing high taxes on legal marijuana.

Dealers, traffickers and cartels are good with this idea.

 

Supports a Homeland Security police state that can’t keep heroin and cocaine out of the US.

 

Tolerates reporters who do not ask questions.

 

Tolerates politicians who lie about clean energy.

 

Supports a Drug War that places us all at risk.

Veterans Day is for honoring veterans. Memorial Day is for honoring those who died in wars. Sept 11th is for honoring the victims and heroes of 911- a time to remember how the nation pulled together in the days following the event.

 

Commenting on newspaper web editions-

The story has to do with the tenth anniversary of 911, a large number of troops lost in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan, or a federal park ranger gunned down in Washington State. Many comments asking for or offering prayers for the families who have suffered a loss, etc. (praying to the same god who watched over as the tragedy unfolded?) Someone posts a public policy question or comment related to the story-

“This isn’t the place for your political views, we don’t want to hear your comments about the war, or gun control, have some respect for the families, this is not the time”, etc.

Hey folks- this is a news site- not a church service. I would never scold anyone for offering prayers- why the effort to suppress ideas?

 

Troop suicides.

Multiple National Guard deployments to distant lands- absent any military emergency, draft, or declaration of war.

A Homeland Security police state that can’t keep heroin and cocaine out of the US.

Grand opening of a $9.8 million, 50 agent US Border Patrol station at Port Angeles- access restricted “only to media with credentials and invited guests

The time never seems right for answers to serious public policy questions.

Perhaps four handguns could have saved thousands on 911?

Never Forget-

The US Armed Forces were irrelevant in defending American rights and freedoms, our physical security, & The Constitution on 911.

Ditto for all other federal agencies and departments.

 

How are terrorists kept out while heroin comes in?

‘Uptick’ in heroin use seen on North Olympic Peninsula

Think terrorists are smart enough to pose as drug traffickers- then cross into the US free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, etc.

Domestic heroin busts are reported as some sort of law & order success-

Each one is evidence that- 11 years after 911– the US Dept. of Homeland Security is unable to prevent criminal traffic from entering the US.

 

Conspiracy Theory-

More information is better- this is how science and medicine works. Over the years some people have been freed from prison based on new DNA evidence becoming available.
Are the people who took steps to discover that new evidence conspiracy theorists?
Apply this same curiosity and desire for knowledge to some controversial topics and you’ll be labeled a conspiracy theorist.

Why the effort to suppress ideas?

My sense of identity is not very much linked to being a veteran- or a member of any group.

 

The people who run both major parties & the conventions that nominate presidential candidates agree on the Drug War.

Ditto for the TV networks that host presidential debates & ask scripted questions of candidates.

Both major parties are OK with decades of ongoing, undeclared wars overseas.

 

Most of the public policy issues I care about will not change no matter which major party is in power.

War on Drugs, Fake War on Terror, ongoing, undeclared wars in distant lands, a costly and ineffective Homeland Security Police State, federal alcohol prohibition for adults age 18-20, violent SWAT raids on the homes of peaceful people who may casually use marijuana, etc.

 

Hey veterans-

How are terrorists kept out while heroin comes in?
