The Countries Responsibility is to Fully Fund the Agency Charged With Fulfilling the Obligations Promised to Those That Served Said Country! But those served, some veterans as well, find it easier to follow the started attacks, conservative ideology, on the agencies dedicated personal, while ignoring the many costly issues especially from our wars! Gen Shinseki had finally started addressing those issues and building the agency the Country promised but ignores and uses as a political pawn, Poser Patriotism, while addressing the Veterans issues of the present and two more long wars! Political ideologies and personal greed should never cross the doorways of Veterans Facilities nor Veterans Issues!!


Survey Finds Few Veterans on Congressional Staffs - Group says Congress should set example by hiring more vets

TX-19 Congressional Candidate Neal Marchbanks - Veteran: 28 March 2014 - "Congress controls the budget for the VA and it is the fault of Congress that the VA does not have enough employees and that the facilities are too small."

Congress, in Veteran Marchbanks statement, are the people served and who representatives work for, or are supposed to!

Sixth District Congressional candidate Seth Moulton: "Congress has made 'travesty' of veterans care" 05/14/2014

“We are dealing with veterans, not procedures—with their problems, not ours.” —General Omar Bradley, First Administrator of the Veterans Administration

"If military action is worth our troops’ blood, it should be worth our treasure, too — not just in the abstract, but in the form of a specific ante by every American." -Andrew Rosenthal 10 Feb. 2013

"12 years also is a long time. We now have a lifetime responsibility to a generation of service members, veterans and their families." Dr. Jonathan Woodson 11 Sep. 2013: With 9/11 Came Lifetime Responsibility
{two tax cuts, especially for the wealthy, came with these two recent unpaid for wars, nor the results of, DeJa-Vu all over again from the previous decades and wars from! Ignore the many issues, by those served, no need to fund!}

Sen. Bernie Sanders told Republicans: “If you can’t afford to take care of your veterans, than don’t go war. These people are bearing the brunt of what war is about, We have a moral obligation to support them.” February, 26th, 2014

25 June 2014 U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller: Veterans' Affairs issue an 'all too similar' scene

How We Could Do More For Our Vets: "We need to go into debt to pay our debt to U.S. veterans to make sure they get the care and services we owe them."

“Why in 2009 were we still using paper?” VA Assistant Secretary Tommy Sowers “When we came in, there was no plan to change that; we’ve been operating on a six month wait for over a decade.” 27 March 2013

WHY? GOOD QUESTION THOSE SERVED SHOULD ANSWER!

12/10/2013 - The era of big data has arrived on the battlefield and we need to find new ways to deal with it.

Tens of Thousands of Veterans' that have been long ignored and maligned by previous VA's and the whole Country and through their representatives!

How does a Country HONOR It's Fallen, by Their Own 'Sacrifice' in Taking Care of the Brothers and Sisters They Served With!!

These Are 'Weapons of Mass Destruction'!!!!

These Are Acts Of Terror With WMD's, Criminal Terrorist Acts

WMD's, Designed To Kill Others and with Ability to Kill Many In Short Time Frames: Connecticut shooter used heavy-duty weapons registered to his mother to kill her and 25 others
December 14, 2012 - Witnesses told reporters the madman fired at least 100 rounds

Way too many of these senseless acts of terror are taking place in our communities, and they are terrorist acts for that's the purpose of the shooters and in many the reason they themselves take their own lives, but this was to the extreme. Children, very young children, the most innocent among us, and we all are their teachers, shot and killed in what can only be called a killing field inside a grade school. And who are the real responsible adults, in this extremely sad case their teachers and teachers aides and administrators within, many killed also, trying to protect against the reign of terror shockingly brought within the walls of, All the first responders, law enforcement, ambulance attendants, fire, doctors, nurses and all others who give communities the service they demand but lately, in these past recent years especially, they have been in focused attacks as the communities demand excellence and immediate action by their service but refuse to pay for that demand service, especially the wealthier among us, just like they do for the veterans of our wars we send them into. Way too much needs to change in this society as it fails like the many before it!!

Stand with families of the Newtown school shooting The mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut is a tragedy beyond comprehension. Stand with the families who've lost loved ones and the community that has been shattered.

Statements of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Co-Chairs on Newtown, Connecticut Shooting
December 14, 2012 – Statement of Mayor's Against Illegal Guns Co-Chair New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg: "With all the carnage from gun violence in our country, it's still almost impossible to believe that a mass shooting in a kindergarten class could happen. It has come to that. Not even kindergarteners learning their ABC's are safe. We heard after Columbine that it was too soon to talk about gun laws. We heard it after Virginia Tech. After Tucson and Aurora and Oak Creek. And now we are hearing it again. For every day we wait, 34 more people are murdered with guns. Read the rest of the press release

Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence: Shooting at Connecticut Elementary School Condolence Messages to the Families
As the horrendous news keeps breaking, our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and community of Newtown, Connecticut.

In this tragic hour, please consider sending your personal condolences to the families by clicking here.

As we as a nation grieve from yet another senseless tragedy, we must come together in the belief that We Are Better Than This.

Sincerely,

Sarah Brady, Chair Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence

This is a Well Regulated/Trained Citizens Militia
And where weapons like those above should be confined to along with our Law Enforcement and our Regular Military Forces

Nobody seeks to strip gun owners of their guns, despite the fears laid on them by irresponsible extremist groups that go silent when the terror acts with guns occur then don't condemn these uses of guns but give excuses for why they should be allowed more of same weapons, but weapons that go beyond a need of the hunter or to protect ones self and family in the hands of the irresponsible and immature adults and especially children, and not safely contained, have no use in a civil society other then to kill and maim each other!!
