Call It For What It Is - And Response

Monday, June 02, 2014

Every bureaucrat guilty of falsifying records in order to receive a bonus from the VA should be immediately fired, arrested and tried for theft by deception.  And further if they can be tied to the death of one veteran due to their action then they ought to be tried for manslaughter, period.

But no, they will be protected and rewarded by the other minions of those who “serve” We The People.

God help us.

I've not commented on various subjects in Chattanooga for several months, even though many deserve discussion. Unions in city government...who will ultimately support the mayor in his run for governor or how many shot this week, Andy? 

We could go on and on, but the VA Hospital...this disaster rest right in Obama's lap.  Sorry what I'm about to say, but Obama is directly responsible for this waiting list and lack of patient care and the loss of life. How long has this gone on?  

Just take a look at the administrators at the VA Hospitals...can your see a pattern in incompetence?  How much are these political appointments paid?  Look at the Biloxi, Ms. waiting list and the excuses of the administrator.  I'm tired of being politically correct, but these political appointments are not capable of performing their jobs.  You cannot improve on stupid. 

Can you imagine what the liberal press would say if a Republican President was this negligence for the last six years?  This guy is not concerned about our economy just basketball and Hollywood.  He certainly can't play golf.  Too many yips. 

This is the last wave of total incompetence by this President.  How many times does he say he's mad as heck.  Where is our housing market, our job market for recent graduates, our foreign policy. Oh, I forgot, he's more interested in concessions with the NFL players and how much are they paid and they do have a union?  

We don't need Hillary. We need a person who will lead us back to economic stability, a strong business and banking position and take back our manufacturing position.  We don't need soft from Hollywood, we need to push Wall Street to have a strong job market and balance a health care plan for the public.   

I hope each and everyone of you take a very hard look at the VA.  It can only improve with out push.  We must help our veterans, please.

With the recent attention given to Vince Dean winning the Hamilton County Criminal Court Ccerk’s race and how he will handle the office and its staff, I believe I can provide some insight to him as a supervisor and boss.  I worked nearly 10 years for the Tennessee General Assembly, and for nearly all of them I worked as the sole staff person dedicated to the House Transportation ...

A Public School Teacher Speaks Out

Recently, some poorly informed folks are spreading misinformation from the Beacon Center website encouraging teachers to "quit the union.” It alleges our support of a state income tax and our radical left-wing agenda.  The last time I checked, the state legislature determines how we are taxed. It's their job to adequately fund our public schools. They collect and redistribute ... (click for more)

Hixson Beats Silverdale For Second Volleyball Win

There's something about that second set that gives the Hixson Lady Wildcats trouble.

Hixson won the first set with ease, 25-11.  Silverdale evened the  ... (click for more)
