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.

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

Okay … here we go. A number of readers have complained that I haven’t shared any jokes that my friends send to my email address so on a weekend when our Volunteers and Mocs are idle, let’s laugh a little:   I was sitting in a bar one afternoon with an old friend knocking back a few beers when he said, "You know, if we're not careful we'll end up like those two old drunks ...

Roy Exum: Troubling Jameis Winston

One of the greatest things about the American legal system is that each and every crime is judged on its own merits.
