the insane ways that the VA focused on solar energy and wind towers over vets.
Three years before Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki would be forced out of his job because of the veterans who had died under him, he visited the Massachusetts National Cemetery. He wasnt there to see the men and women who had died because of him.
While vets were dying, Obama and Shinseki had turned their attention to something truly important; seeing to it that all the cemeteries where they were being buried had wind or solar power.
The cemetery turbine had cost $533,000. Veterans were dying to save the VA a few hundred dollars. Shinseki had made his order of priorities clear. Green energy boondoggles came first. Improving veteran care came last.
Now there are some hard numbers on just how much money the VA wasted.
The agency allotted $399 million of its stimulus funds solely to enhance its green energy portfolio, and more than 940 green energy projects were undertaken.
$400 million would have bought a whole lot of medical care for vets, but medical care for vets was never the goal. Under Obama, every Federal agency ignores its duties and pursues the goals of the left.

Don’t blame BamBam. He was on vacation at the golf course and didn’t know anything about this.
Seems ..... Commerce in the form of greasing his financial backers and handlers kickbacks through government contractors is .... valid. Maybe the socialist drunk democratic nuts in Austin Texas will charge Erkel Mugabe, precedent for life Obama with abuse of power ?
Noooooo stupid rat voters and backers will vote for the RATS & RINOS again and again ..... Polidiots, Presstitutes and Poser Polls oh my.....
Doom on em all ..... My opinion .
Vets have done their duty for TPTB. They, along with the rest of us, have become useless eaters for the totalitarians and their agendas.
The VA’s as creepy as Al Gore.
Give vets vouchers - - end the VA forever.
Not only the VA, military bases are being forced to go green, too, while they cut training, personnel, and supplies.
Why not? The world is at peace./s
Those murdered-by-neglect Vets cam RIP understanding that they really contributed to making Ghia feel better. Have you noticed that no one has been fired, arrested or made to return their bonuses for murdering those Vets?
“John Kerry, reporting for duty.”
You mean Obama didn't see it in the newspapers along with everyone else?
you can bet there won’t be any green energy getting in the way of the money for illegal alien children staying at government luxury resorts.
