Special Agent Robert Earl Hutchinson, USACIDC (Ret.)
"O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU"
The reports of my "passing" have been a bit overstated. It is true that at one time, while in the hospital, I felt I was losing grasp on everything. Now I am in one heck of a mess. No smokes, no driving, no booze, 24/7 Oxygen and total PO d at the world. Puffing on an electronic fake cigarette, does not help. I out lasted the VA. Yes, after over 4 years of combat with the VA, the valued assistance of Sen. Richard Burr, R NC and the blessings of the good Lord, my Vietnam connected 100% Disability, was granted by VA the day before I went to the ER. Agent Orange. I wonder how many Guys don't out last the VA
It is written, "BS walks and Money talks”...
The Administration has proclaimed for all to hear that Retired Military Benefits will not be part of "O BUMMER CARE". TRICARE FOR LIFE, which serves as a supplement to MEDICARE, will not suffer. Further, there are no "Death Boards" in TRICARE. Medication coverage will not change.
It's called the US Constitution, Mr. President
The Department of Justice (DoJ) is not happy, with our new North Carolina "Voter ID" law. It would appear that, as usual, ideology, rather than common sense or history, are driving the debate. I am now a Conservative Independent, neither a Jack Ass nor a Dumbo. Thousands of my Brother's and Sister's, from the "Unpopular-Forgotten War", are on a one way trip, to help pay for your right to vote and you not have the legal requirement to risk your Butt, in the defense of our USA. "States- Rights", does not fit well within the Socialism part of your "Transformation".
Walk Tall, Professional Soldier, The American Foreign Legion
** It was decreed that all shall be protected**
"Protect and Serve", is the motto of our Law Enforcement units. That also includes our Military, the World Police.
When we were hired, there were all kinds of assurances made concerning our treatment during Active Duty and afterwards, as to medical treatment, retirement etc. No one ever thought to obtain a written contract. It was do and act like you are ordered. You will get what you get, when you are told to do so.
R-RATED - May Hurt Your Feeling
SHALL WE START AT A COMMON BASE LINE?
You may BS your friends and at times I may BS mine, let's stop the BS flow to each other. Yes my GI Buddy, Mickey is now a "Street Pimp", Mini is down "on the corner" and the "Red Light" has been turned on over the back door of the Defense Department ( DoD). The Military family are to be utilized, without even a kiss on the ear. Be assured we are expendable, to the DoD and our Commander in Chief (CiC).
* DESCRIBING IQ'S AND MOTIVATIONS *
I am the last to "Out" a bunch of Dumb Jack Ass acting individuals, as I have been called a Dumb Asteroid, on many occasions. If you keep screwing up doing the same thing, over and over again, expecting a completely different result, you could be just a plain "Brain Washed" moron. I know your family have always been Blue Jack Ass Morons.
* REMEMBER YOUR MANNERS *
Virginia Libertarians remember to send your Thank You notes to the DNC, who sent through their surrogate, all those large cash campaign donations. Some would say, "Thirty pieces of silver". Further, some might ask, how long has the Libertarian Party been receiving funds from the Social Democrats? How many elections have been delivered?
"ADAPT- IMPROVISE AND OVERCOME"
In the past it was not acceptable for the Military to express political views or tell the world how we were getting abused. We were to accept what we were given, many times without regard, as to what we had been promised. We continued to "Serve at the Pleasure” of politicians, without any written contractual agreements, concerning present or future benefits. It is more than apparent, that we can no longer trust the Politicians. Most neither respect nor understand our Military Profession. To these people we are a required evil, who do not “Block Vote".
