Bush Double standard on Bonds, another horrific example of Bush abuse of wounded vets,last nights debate, we must focus on one thing!

I just heard of a war Vet who died in the VA recently and we were responsible for killing him when Iraq couldn't. They had a few other examples. That highlights that part of this story. I am sick of the damn excuses. I had a picture up but rethought it because I felt for the sufferer at the hands of the VA. I am sick of the problems many Iraq Veterans are encountering in trying to get care despite what we are ignorantly told and it is not only a few.

Bush Double standard on Bonds, another horrific example of Bush abuse of wounded vets,last nights debate, we must focus on one thing: Take our America back!

Knowing the Obstruction of justice that goes on every day in Bush's misadministration and gets away with I was once again taken aback by his misdirected idea of justice to fit his need. I found it disturbingly two faced and once again double standard for the chief idiot to pass judgment on Barry Bonds indictment on Obstruction of Justice and Perjury. Federal prosecutors Thursday accused baseball's reigning home-run king of using steroids and lying to a grand jury about it during a probe into the use of performance-enhancing drugs in professional sports.

A federal grand jury in San Francisco indicted seven-time National League MVP Barry Bonds on four counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice, the Justice Department announced. Bonds, 43, repeatedly denied he had knowingly taken banned substances during his December 2003 testimony to an earlier grand jury investigating the distribution of steroids by a San Francisco-area laboratory.

Even the White House is weighing in on the indictment of baseball slugger Barry Bonds, calling it a "sad day for baseball." A spokesman says President Bush is "very disappointed" to hear the news. Bonds was indicted yesterday by a grand jury for perjury and obstruction of justice.They supposedly are worried about getting the truth out to the public, Since when?

Perjury and obstruction of Justice is the hallmark of the Bush Mis-Administration and I have never heard of anything but support for it coming from him. When Scooter Libby was indicted on multiple counts of Obstruction of Justice and perjury Bush let him off the hook and said he was a good man. What? Why isn't he concerned about the Black eye he and his Mis-administration have given our Government and the country. I happen to agree with him on Bonds but he has no room to criticize anyone else. The idiot has set the low standard. Obstruction of Justice! What about Rove, Cheney, Bush, Rice, Gonzo, everyone else in this Mis-Administration. They may all get Presidential protection but they are to a person guilty.

Plus, I was horrified when I saw another story this morning about a hero whose nightmare I have been following. It bothered me greatly as we just talked about the abuse of our soldiers again yesterday as bush continues to screw them over while saying how much he cares about them. what's new? Anyway:
Ty Ziegel peers from beneath his Marine Corps baseball cap, his once boyish face burned beyond recognition by a suicide bomber's attack in Iraq just three days before Christmas 2004. He lost part of his skull in the blast and part of his brain was damaged. Half of his left arm was amputated and some of the fingers were blown off his right hand. Ziegel, a 25-year-old Marine sergeant, knew the dangers of war when he was deployed for his second tour in Iraq. But he didn't expect a new battle when he returned home as a wounded warrior: a fight with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

"Sometimes, you get lost in the system," he told CNN. "I feel like a Social Security number. I don't feel like Tyler Ziegel." His story is one example of how medical advances in the battlefield have outpaced the home front. Many wounded veterans return home feeling that the VA system, specifically its 62-year-old disability ratings system, has failed them.
"The VA system is not ready, and they simply don't have time to catch up," Tammy Duckworth -- herself a wounded veteran who heads up the Illinois Department of Veteran Affairs -- told the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee in March. VA Acting Secretary Gordon Mansfield said cases like Ziegel's are rare -- that the majority of veterans are moving through the process and "being taken care of." He also said most veterans are fairly compensated. Read more on the 28,500 wounded in Iraq
I am disgusted! Examples like Ty's are not rare and they should be nonexistent. It is just one example of Bush's lack of concern as he follows his own path! I am sick of hearing the stupid excuse the VA is not ready and doesn't have time to catch up. BS, it has had 5 years. Employ an Army if you need to but get it done. Stop the lying, we owe it to them!
Lastly, last nights useless pissing contest in Nevada was grossly misdirected and focused on the nominees attacking each other and their proposals on how to fix the countries ills but not the real problems. read the wasted mudslinging and games
* We must get rid of these Republican idiots! We are not going to do it playing childish cute games. There is only one issue. There is only one thing we have to focus on. There is only one point to hammer home and no one mentions it, runs on it, or is smart enough to highlight it. Instead they play standard childish Political games and it will be to ours and the countries demise. We have to run on undoing all of Bush's damage to our America so he could set up his new America. He needed to widen the gap between the wealthy and the rest of us and he has. We continuously exhort the fact that the middle class's plight continues to worsen and the help to those that need it has decreased under Bush. Healthcare has worsened. Everything has worsened for average Americans and on purpose under Bush as corporations and the affluent have been his only priority.

**Why does no one point out in every single category how much worse things are under Bush than they were before this nightmare happened. We have all the figures. there are no games needed just use the facts before and after Bush. Just say I want to give we the people's America back to them. I want to undo all the damage Bush has done to America. I want to rebuild the successful America we have spent generations to build for all Americans and Bush has destroyed in a few short years. I think we can rebuild the mess Bush has made of our America. The world I am afraid is another story as he has awakened nationalist fervor around the world that as we see in Pakistan will not be quelled or placated and we will be forced to react to it want to or not. Knowing this we must get back into office and put America back in order so we can deal with the terrible future Bush has set in motion for us and the world.

Doesn't this say what we all think:

Dude, Where's My Country
A. Alexander

More and more Americans are waking up in the morning, rubbing their eyes with the heel of their hands, yawning, blinking, shaking their head as if to clear cobwebs from their mind and then laying down in hopes of returning to sleep because they are certain they've just experienced a nightmare. These Americans are suffering from something called, "Dude, I've Been Rip Van Winkled" or "Dude, Where's My Country" Syndrome.

The disease works like this:

1. The sufferer goes to bed one night and wakes up to find that their government has gone totally Soviet Gulag on them and has started operating secret prisons.

2. The Sufferer goes to bed one night and wakes up to find that their government has gone totally Third World Tin-Horn Dictator on them and has started imprisoning people without trial.

3. The Sufferer goes to bed one night and wakes up to find that their government has gone totally pre-King George III on them and has done away with habeas corpus.

4. The Sufferer goes to bed one night and wakes up to find that their government has gone totally Nazi and has taken to torturing people here, there, and everywhere.

5. The Sufferer goes to bed one night and wakes up to find that their government has gone totally Medieval by joining some of the world's biggest human rights abusers, Iran and Syria among the group, in opposing a UN resolution calling for the end of capital punishment.

6. The Sufferer goes to bed one night and wakes up to find that their government has gone totally blitzkrieg -- "shock and awe" -- on an innocent country and, unprovoked, invaded based upon trumped-up banana republic-like claims of WMD.

7. The Sufferer goes to bed one night and wakes up to find that their government has gone totally Orwellian "1984" and vetoed health care for children because it was too expensive, while immediately demanding a $50 billion increase in war funding.

8. The Sufferer goes to bed one night and wakes up to find that their government has gone totally pre-1930's Depression-era economic paradigm and became almost giddy about the fact that 35 million Americans -- nearly 13 million children -- went hungry in 2006.

Why was the Bush administration giddy? Because the number of hungry Americans "only" increased by about a quarter million over the previous year.

Dude, I've so been totally Rip Van Winkled. All I'm saying is like, Dude, where's my country? I'm gonna turn off the lights, go back to sleep and hope that this long national nightmare comes to an end soon.

Need we say anything more?

This guy has been sending emails to several blogs about this site and claiming he can't contact the FBI because he is being watched:

Jim, this kind of thing really twists my undies in a knot.

The whole 'Truth in recruiting" idea is something I support completely. Why? because the military lures in people with promises of all sorts (money, education, VA loans, health care, you name it) and when you get out, they don't give you shit.

What you do end up getting has been gotten with a fight, long waits, and seems like table scraps when you thought you signed on for a filet mignon dinner, complete with all American apple pie.

To respond to the lies in recruiting I have to rely on the wisdom of my mother in law,

"You can dress a road-apple pie with all the whipped cream in the world, but it doesn't change the fact that you're feeding me horse shit."

Jim and Larry_ I don't think it is legit ( Gabriel)- try to look him up...and crashed my computer this afternoon- be careful- something fishy about it- btw it is very easy to get in touch with American authorities in Thailand...very..

( I wonder if someone is trying to set Thailand up as a Problem next..)

Anyways- jim just wanted to say thank you for these two great posts about a horrific subject- I will add you to the must see list on my post before I go to bed...

more dying here than there- NO ONE is covering this - wth???? I did send to Keith- maybe others should too...

keep up your great blogging....hi larry, anok....

sumo said...

Gabriel is probably a neo-con...and if you open the site up on your computer they probably have viruses for it just waiting. He came on my site and left a comment...and I ignored it figuring it was suspicious. The right is on the march on the left blogs trying to cause trouble imho.

enigma4ever said...

hey sumo- I am the idiot that tried to open it from your site-please do delete - it crashed my computer....I don't want others to have that happen..I will write and warn you - I knew there was one more thing that I needed to do before bed....thanks......

I really have to laugh! It's funny because I wrote I think my sec no 3rd ot 4th book titled Rip Van Winklle wakes up in the trenches of America after 9/11. It's on my main page http://www,
Some people are waking up. Some never will as they believe in the Chief idiot. And not enough ever will to get things turned around.

an average patriot said...

Wow Larry
My first reaction was to look at the web site Gabriel recommended but thinking about it I don't trust it. Maybe you will start being watched as they will have your information now. You can trust nothing, what do you think?

an average patriot said...

You're funny! I have been seeing you around a lot. Hope your husban is okay. Recruiters do lie. Filling their quota is all that matters. Anything they haqve to say or do to achieve that is fine.
I had one do for me what Bush said can't be done. He threw away my military records in Boston to get me out of the Marines and in the Air Force then I later went in the Army reserves while I went to College etc.
Anyway everyone I know was lied too including my 2 sons who just happen to like what they do and do not mind. One is an EOD lifer and the other as C17 air crew. Take care!

an average patriot said...

Funny you say that because I went to Gabriel's site and got suspicious thinking I could be setting myself up. You just never know today.
Thanks, I was surprised and unpleasantly so to find out how many were dying here after surviving Combat. As I was putting the post together and tyhe official was sayuing how rare it was as was bad service when across the wire came a message saying how coming it is. I am sick of the lying and continued abuse and underlying crap to follow a disgusting hidden destructive agenda.

an average patriot said...

Nice to hear from you. I have been hectically busy. I got suspicous too after accessing that site and got right off. So far no problems. I will let you know. the right wing worms are getting more underhanded as they feel their mis-aganda is in jeopardy. All of you keep up the good work!

an average patriot said...

Was it Gabriel's site or that FBI site that crashed you? I went to Gabriel's but got suspicous and got right off and wouldn't access anything else.

betmo said...

there isn't much we can trust these days. the intelligence gathering seems to be more for gathering on americans than anything else- per the recent debacle at the cia with the lady whose bro-in-law is in a subversive group in the middle east. people are not aware of how much freedom we have lost in the name of 'better be safe than sorry war on terror.' i don't trust government period.

an average patriot said...

hey Betmo!
Glad to hear from you. How you doing? I know, I am so sick of the underhanded lying so this chief idiot can follow his mis-agenda.
I just got in and in the car I was listening to the shit lie and belittle Dems for not giving him his war money. He said it is their fault if our taxes have to be raised.Since when does he care about the middle class? Bull!
That lying worm! I am so sick of his lying underhanded game playing. I am sick of it!
