WASHINGTON (AP) — Veterans groups are rallying to fight any proposal to change disability payments as the federal government attempts to address its long-term debt problem. They say they've sacrificed already.
Dear George Bush and Dick Cheney, You Are Guilty of Murder: A Letter from a Dying Veteran
Wow. Lara Logan, who in 2011 was brutally beaten, raped, and almost killed by a mob of animals as she covered the "Arab spring" in Cairo for CBS News, recently spoke very bluntly about the status of what we once called the war on terror and the Obama administration's white-washing of the dangers:
To all War Veterans who voted for this fool Obama. Now, you know all your friends who died in any war was all in vain because America based on this Obamacare ruling has just pushed America into Socialism, and all those who fought and died in war died for socialism not for freedom. This also...
All for his campaign.
Keep buying the snake oil libtards.

I liked Christopher Hitchens very much, so when we were together, I tried to avoid all talk of religion. Despite my Southern Baptist roots, I saw no need to debate an avowed atheist on a topic that filled him with the unyielding fervor of a...
They are pushing back the last pay so it will reflect 30 Dec instead of 1 Jan which means for tax purposes we were paid 13 times instead of 12 :eek:
Just heard from a good friend of mine who's a vet. Come January, his 'copay' under ObamaCare is $1700 a year. Minimum.
Oh and all his copays have gone up exponentially.
More good news
In the days after 9/11, the American people demanded action against the terrorists who slaughtered almost 3,000 people and the regime that sponsored them.
Most of us know very little about the first to answer that call, but Alex Quade and the Daily Caller tell their story in “The Horse Soldiers...
Who are the idiots that decides the Rules of Engagement in the war in Afghanistan?
I suspect it is the politicians whom wish to weaken and destroy this country.
If it is the military that made this desion without any political pressure then surely our country is lost.

These people are the epitome of hypocritical, especially this President.

So the Senate Majority Leader for the Republicons admitted in an interview that his party is divided over military action in Libya, but that you're only hearing about it because a Democrat is President. Many of these same divisions existed under President Bush, but party loyalty "muted" the...
