The Final Straw

After the likes of this story, I simply can no longer keep my head in the political sand and "hope" that the new administration will work out.

Neither can I accept any further pleas to give Obama more time. The placating argument that he has only just gained the Office is a null and void point. His many detrimental actions in such a short amount of time do not allow for a quiet "waiting game" to be played.

Now that he is openly going after American disabled Veterans by seeking to send us (yes, I am one) to private insurers instead of the VA administration we currently use, I have had it.

Service-related injuries fall under the "Acts of War" clause in many insurers pre-existing conditions fine print. Even if he tries to remove this clause so that we can be accepted into the "broken" system that he was so vehemently against in his campaign, we will end up paying out-of-pocket costs for that which is currently free for those of us who qualify.

The going amount on many sites for the cost of our medical care through the VA?


The amount we just sent to Palestine to help them rebuild after the recent Israel/Gaza dust up?


Oh, and we'll throw in some American college scholarships for them too.

Great. Send money to a terrorist state, but refuse your Military their medical benefits:

"The American Legion Commander, David K. Rehbein said, 'He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it.'" ~ via This Ain't Hell

This and other such acts (photos of the War Dead Silent Flight, Stance on the War on Terror, etc.), will ultimately lower recruitment and retention of experience within our Military's ranks and force Congress to re-institute the draft, thereby infusing it with liberals and "balancing" the conservative voter bloc it represents. Prepare to see more stop-loss too.

Even if he backs off of this, I will not forget that he attempted to seriously vet this as a "legitimate" means of saving the government money...

...while rapidly working his way towards spending more money (on mostly liberal pork) than any other human being in the history of humanity.

I have always tried to be fair with this man, but it is becoming more difficult with each passing day not to succumb to Obama Derangement Syndrome.
