“You say you want a revolution... well you know”
What is this chess game about?
abc=all barack channel
Hey veterans, you are invited to the Tea Party coming up on April 15th. Y’all come!
The one thing I will give Obama is at least he is consistent and we should expect nothing less. How much do want to bet there will be mass protests on the White House lawn by summmertime.
And sadly, you're right about NASA. I'm still in awe that some lefties I know who are serious "on to Mars" types still refuse to acknowledge the snob's statements about NASA's future. I watched the launch last night and for the first time since I was a child, got choked up about spaceflight, but for completely opposite reasons.
“How much do want to bet there will be mass protests on the White House lawn by summertime.”
How much do you bet that this Charlie Sierra Mike Foxtrot doesn’t try to order the military which he despises to fire on their own countryman to protect his sorry a**?
They lost the right to call themselves Republicans... Levin has it right... they are repubics.
By 2012 they will finally see the light. The covers are pulled away from the rat party and only muzzies and commies like what they see.
If he issues that order, he will open a keg of powder that he cannot close.
” ive noticed when he salutes, it appears to be half-a**ed attempt, “
There was a video a week or two ago on cable of Barry saluting and as he brought his arm down-he did this arm flick thing,
like he was flinging away something distasteful .
He shows more respect for his basketball.
Obama bankrupting the injured military and their families
( and that’s what it would do) has been out there since last Tuesday.
The minute the words were out of Shinseki’s mouth on Tuesday-every elected Republican should have assembled en masse on the steps of the Congress
and angrily denounced this.
We got crickets...
Billions for Gaza , billions for ACORN, billions for AIG and the finger to our injured soldiers.
Rusty Humphries went ballistic on his radio show last week over this.
Other than FR , Humphries and Drudge today-has anyone else mentioned this ?
If this actually happens Obummer is going to have a revolt on his hands inside and outside the military.
I have no idea. My dad is a retired disabled person who gets his medicine through the VA and he doesn’t have private insurance either.
Keep in mind also, if you work with a Vet, and he is billed an extremely high bill from a war injury, YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE GOES UP.
If you ask me, that is the goal here to push socialized medicine.
Can you send me some sources on how he plans on destroying NASA? I remember reading about him cutting some programs, but I have a goony liberal friend (and yes, I have way too many of them. I run in the wrong circles I guess but I end up doing more converting of them then they do of me) who is an astronomer and is convinced that Obama is the “Science President” because McCain didn’t like the observatory Obama gave some Chicago place that ended up campaigning for him. He couldn’t see Obama was buying votes and couldn’t care two wits about science.
AMEN!!!! LLS, I love me some hippy John Lennon and the Beatles (most especially the love of my life, Julian. I know, it’s my age) and I can sing that song FOR REAL now!
Obama said he would not weaponize space, for one. Two, he put on hold ares/orion which is the follow on to the shuttle. he gave $1B to NASA in the stimulus (I think it was) but he gave $5B to ACORN; that sure tells ME he doesn’t think much of NASA.
See my post below about people who work with vets and their insurance increasing due to higher levels of payments or potential payments and the easing in of socialized medicine.
Of course I don’t doubt it’s a double whammy of cracking the country. I have always been afraid Obama was a sleeper cell himself.
His “salute” telegraphs his contempt.
When is the march on Washington and where do I sign up.
Let’s see what Obambi does when millions of pissed off veterans show up on the mall.
that’s it, he does not look proud in any sense of being “commander-in-chief”, only komdrad in chief
The Bastard in Chief will voice all the support in the world, then cut off the $, just as he is doing to the military.
i must have seen the same footage, it really was disgraceful
My stepdad is already talking about setting a group for Georgia.
If I find out anything concrete or he said if there is a date where it will be nationwide, I will let you know when I know.
Yep... love the Beatles myself... and even Lennon would be shocked at the crap hussein is pulling.
You commented, “As an American,a Veteran, a Christian, I am truly ashamed that there were enough weak, spineless, whiney Americans, to have voted this absolute LOSER into the Presidency.”
As a veteran myself, I have been constantly amazed by the many, many veterans who vote for the Democrats even though their policies have been detrimental to the nation’s best interests. I know many who voted for Obama. We are a free people and can vote for whomever we please but, like you, I find it incredible that so many bought into Obama’s Marxism, hook, line and sinker.
My dad called me and played a piece from the Rachel Maddow show (I know, he’s a hopeless lib) and even she was like WTF? What is he doing? Apparently (according a spokesman for a VA group) this is going to be DOA in Congress because dems and republicans are not going to pass this.
I hope this is true.
I still want it out there so that people can see him for what he is.
How many men and women will not have their jobs waiting when they get back from duty in reserves because their provider doesn’t want to sit and get hit with a high claim while an employee is in Iraq?
How many employers WON’T HIRE VETS OR RESERVES?
How many are police officers and if their health insurance goes up, so do your local taxes?
As Julian said, he would be screaming at the tv “That’s a load of CRAP!” LOL!
I am beyond disgust. Bambi is not an American, certainly not a patriot, and generally speaking, one huge mistake.
oh don’t forget the kobe beef for 100.00 a lb. at those parties, and he needs xtra money to spread the wealth around so ur welfare buddies can have socialized healthcare at ur expense,thus spread the wealth,wait till cap and spend goes into effect,you’ll be getting taxed for goiing to the bathroom and being overweight thx ken
We broke ground for huge VA hospital in Orlando last Fall. Want to be it is ever bui;t?
It’s coming, and soon.
If you keep it up, 0bama, you will surpass Jimmah Carter as the worst president ever. And that is saying something (and its only been 60 days).
Many veterans like myself are already doing this....thankfully I do have other insurance. In December I went to the VA clinic to see to get a consult to see a Neurosurgeon or OrthoSpine Surgeon for my service connected disability. Since my appointment in December I have continued to wait for an appointment with a VA specialist, have had an appointment with a private practice specialist, have had all the tests (MRI, CAT Scan, EMG, X-Rays, etc.), have had major surgery on my spine, and if my appointment with the private surgeon is positive next week, I’ll be back to work after being off for 6 weeks.
If the psuedo representatives in Washington gave 2 shiatskis about the vet they would have some accountability in the Veterans Administration....because certainly there is accountability when some poor enlisted guy shoots a terrorist and he’s charged with murder!
And these kooks in D.C. want the government to run healthcare.
One more nail for America’s coffin and the jerk has a fully loaded nail gun.
You have beaten me by a millisecond. Only because I just sent out an email to people with bcc letting everyone know what I think:
We dun nee no Veterans Hospitals. (That’ll teach those good for nothing losers for serving their country.)
Time to change them to Hospitals for the Undocumented and Geographically Challenged
On behalf of those who have served, those injured who Commander Zero wishes to dump to the trash bin:
I got the logo and inserted right there. Now some may not be surprised that I don’t regard him highly. Couched it with humor in the beginning, but let me say I find nothing funny about it. It’s how I am choosing to make my point.
I would love to see a nationwide ride to washington/protest.
Start in the Western states and come across I-10, I-20, I-40, I-70, I-80 and I-90 picking up groups along the way with the entire caravan converging on Washington at the same time from all directions.
This is WAY beyond lack of love. This is lack of respect and worse.
That this narcissist could not find a moment to visit the injured in Germany was telling.
But why didn’t everyone know it then? Now it’s no surprise to some of us.
It is however a shock how far he’s willing to go.
What an absolute disgrace.
Notify everyone. Most people know someone who served or a friend in the VFW.
It’s time to fight!
“I have to admit, Im enjoying rubbing some noses in this down at my Post. Its chock full of obedient union Democrats that parrot the talking points. It saddens me.”
Don’t make it personal satisfaction. Make it a point to make them question their judgement.
Show them the article, look them in the eye and say, “Happy now?”
Follow with, “And you thought ignoring the injured servicemen in Germany was an accident?”
Last, end with, “Are you now willing to stand for your brothers who served or what?”
It’s either fight now or be disgraced. There’s no middle ground here.
My apologies as no offense is intended. I am very disturbed by this.
Don’t get it/ Did they have private insurance when they went to Iraq??? This makes no sense...at all.
It would be a wonderful thing if B-O were booed off the stage in conservative Orange County, California this week during his “town hall” appearance there.
I will be on the phone and will have trouble not cursing tomorrow at the Rep./Senators.
I want the Rat party held accountable!
BTW.. to all military retirees
If you have Tricare Prime (I signed up for it when I retired.) It is NOT private insurance despite you having to pay premiums for it.
VA will not ACCEPT Tricare as a health insurance
The game is about taking as many pieces in as few steps as possible.
Reward your left wing allies, destroy and cut down your enemies.
The US military service people are the enemy.
Well if you say so. Okay, I’m good now.
I wonder if any real people will be allowed at his “town halls” in California this week. He’ll probably freeze out vets while sucking up to illegals.
