FEDERAL POWER- WE DON’T NEED STATES ANYMORE!

As an avid reader with a lust for knowledge about history I wish to share some “Facts” many will find interesting. I was born in 1930 when times were rather bleak for 98% of all Americans. I grew up in the era before, during and after World War ll. I suffered through watching the rise and fall of both Germany and Japan for completely different reasons. Both of these nations became butchers of mankind including many if their own citizens.

The world has suffered through thousands of evil leaders like Lenin of Russia through Communism while Germany and Japan were wrecked by imperialism, fascism and racism.

America has been going through a Progressive change for over 100 years. This country has survived as a democratic Republic with freedoms never equaled in world history. We have had more than our share of wingnuts and disgruntled morons try to change our freedoms for all of my life. Sadly our current President has made all the previous Progressive Presidents look like lunatics while he has accomplished the loss of more freedoms than all of the other combined.

No one disputes that he was raised as a Communists and educated in Muslim schools and religious surroundings. Everyone should know one of Obama’s hero’s was an avowed Communists, Saul Alinsky. Obama includes passages about him in his books. Something you may not know or even care, Hillary Clinton did her college thesis based on Alinsky’s writings. He wrote two books every Socialists loves, “Rules for Radicals” and “Reveille for Radicals”. Alinsky died over 40 years ago.

Whether this bothers you or not it scares the crap out of me. Let me walk you through Alinsky’s step-by-step rules on how to create a socialists state. Again you may not care but if you are happy with the events ruining our Republic with Democratic political changes to our Constitution you would be happier by moving to Europe and letting the rest of us stay free. If you read this you can easily see what is happening in America today as the Democrats are following his instructions exactly. We are watching exactly what happened when Germany gave Hitler too much power in the 1930’s. You can read about, I lived through it.

Alinsky defined eight specific things that a central government must have absolute control of in order to create a social state. He defined that the first priority is the most important.

  1. Healthcare– Control healthcare and you control the people
  2. Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to survive.
  3. Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and that will produce more poverty.
  4. Gun Control– Remove the ability for people to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
  5. Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)
  6. Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.
  7. Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools
  8. Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

Unless you are blind, stupid or already a Socialists you should be concerned and stop all of these things “NOW”. I did not make this up, read them for yourself.

One by one our Congress and the Progressive federal government is using the Supreme Court to destroy State laws and the power for a State to enact their own laws about anything. Obviously my last article expressed my disdain for the unlawful decision to force the Affordable Dare Act (ACA), or as commonly called Obamacare, on the majority of the States.

The decision Thursday to usurp the laws of many states and force same sex marriage on all Americans was just another instance of voiding State laws. This issue to force individuals to perform or service anyone when it is against their faith and we watch another freedom disappear.

Our Federal government now has or soon will have total control of step one, Healthcare.

We now have the majority of Americans living in poverty, step two accomplished.

We have the largest debt in our history regardless of how it is measured, step three accomplished.

Step four, the saber rattling about guns will be Obama or Hillary’s next objective and probably by Obama’s Executive Order. Without doubt our current Supreme Court will ban ownership of any weapon with a 5-4 or possibly a 6-3 vote very soon.

Step five, welfare is being attacked at every level of government. Many Americans are now told what they can eat, drink, work for wages and where they can live. It will include us all when the new Constitution is written by the Supreme Court

Obama’s precidsessors, including George Bush, have destroyed the education system I enjoyed in my life. We now have the most radical and socialistic higher education system in the free world. Step 6 now controllable by the federal government. Eventually all education including text material will be 100% government controlled.

Destroying our religious freedoms has been underway for many years. Obama just kicked it up a notch and the Supreme Court is happy as a group. Hopefully you read my two previous articles about our Supreme Political Court.

Creating class warfare was the easiest task for Obama as he can scream racism as our first black President. Clinton tried but was too dumb to understand its value.

You can easily disagree with my conservative views and but you can’t change actual facts or erase history. By the time Obama leaves office he will have done more damage to Americans freedoms than Hitler actually did to the German people. Radicals are the enemies of all humanity.

“SCOTUS” OR “PCOTUS”????

SCOTUS, The acronym for the Supreme Court of the United States has been in use for several years, apparently among young people who don’t know that S. CT has been the abbreviation in use for generations, if not centuries. Merriam-Webster.

I used to respect this group of nine supposedly honest, ethical, educated jurists who are appointed to evaluate legal disputes and render decisions based on the law, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I am also well-educated, a successful businessman and apparently spend more time watching the destruction of our freedoms than all nine of them. There is one major difference, I am not, and never intended to be a lawyer. I lost respect for and I have little confidence in any lawyer who has to be a politician to make a living. This brings me to explain my word, “PCOTUS” which is the correct definition of what used to be our Supreme Court. These nine people no longer deserve to have the word “Supreme” as any part of their title.

PCOTUS, my acronym for the Political Court of the United States which should be the official title. Seeing this court diminish into nothing more than rendering political opinions that help the political part they support. I have read the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and understand the laws of the land. These documents are not mysteries written as a novel to see if you can solve a crime. I will admit some laws like the Affordable Care Act, (ACA,) currently under review by “Pcotus” is one of the best mysterious documents ever produced by any Congress.  Year by year the army of Congressional lawyers who suck on the government teat astound me in how they have mastered the art of distortion and secrecy in laws that the average American would never understand. It appears that over my lifetime Law Schools must have included courses in “Chicanery”, “Political Justice” as well as “Distortion”. It appears that some law schools have also included lying, misrepresentation and unethical methods. I have several grandchildren who are lawyers and let me be clear that my feelings about lawyers is focused on those elected or working in any government position. Even though some these grandchildren are Liberal, it appears they have the ability to make an honest living. They all have enough common sense to know right from wrong.

The current case regarding the ACA is just another screw up by the lawyers who wrote the act and the 100% democratic vote to enact it without even reading the words. It is no secret that Obama and every Democrat would abolish all State laws if they could. It would not surprise me to see Obama try to do this by executive order.

PCOTUS has been reviewing this document since it was published. The Progressive-Liberal race to Socialize our Republic found the perfect “Dupe” in President Obama to finish off the socialization of medical care which was the dream of Hillary Clinton 25 years ago. The only roadblock the Democrats have had for the past several years is that they can’t get at least five Justices on the “Political Court” to change the Constitution to support mandatory Socialism. Even many of our Republican Presidents have been supporters of this change and some running now just hide behind smoke screens to get elected. We will likely see the “PCOTUS” ignore the law again as they have done previously when Justice Roberts sold out and ignored States Rights in a previous decision.

These Justices are holding lifetime jobs, make rather nice salaries for working about three months a year and at least four of them just ignore the laws of the land. Just because Obama ignores the laws we have four Justices who just vote as a block to support his agenda. The media has already ruled that any decision that makes Congress fix the mess will be unfair to too many people. Compassion is not a government decision, it’s either lawful or unlawful.

If President Obama and the 100% Democratic vote to create the ACA was wrong then Congress must fix it themselves. Sadly politics used to be limited to two legs of our government, the Legislative and Executive branches. Laws are now enforced as fairness rather than what is right or wrong under the law.

Now that I hope I have your attention let me introduce you to the current “PCOTUS” members. To make sure you see no age bias I am older than all nine of them as I will be 85 on August 31st. Statistics that I will share have thankfully not caught up with me yet. None of us have a contract for our lifespan and I am blessed. I hope and pray that the Justices are also blessed. Ruth Ginsburg (82) was born March 15, 1933. Antonin Scalia (79) was born March 11, 1936. Anthony Kennedy (78) was born July 23, 1936. Stephen Breyer (76) was born August 15, 1938. Samuel Alito (65) was born April 1, 1950. Sonia Sotomayor (60) was born June 25, 1954. John Roberts (60) was born January 27, 1955. The baby, Elena Kagan (55) was born April 28, 1960. I have one daughter older than the last four and two more children older than the last three.

I did some research to let you see how comfortable you feel having elderly (65+) Justices. Americas leading causes of death after 65 is; 1. A Heart Attack, 2. Cancer, 3. A Stroke, 4. Is a tie, COPD and Diabetes. 5. Pneumonia/Influenza. The health issue that scares me the most is Alzheimer’s. I read that roughly 19% of men will contact this horrible disease if they live long enough. It is only about 13% for women. Based on the mass of five to four votes to decide whether something is lawful or un-lawful tends to reflect that we likely have some Justices who might be having problems.

Every employee that is over 65 and draws a check from the government should have to be tested for Dementia and then once every year if they continue to serve. If all 535  members of Congress were made to take this test, regardless of age, we would not have to worry about term limits. I doubt that half of them could pass 12th grade exams.

If none of the PCOTUS members die before or after the next President is sworn-in, the balance of power in this Court will change the course of history. If the Progressive-Liberal democrats, likely Hillary Clinton, is our next President there will never be another conservative government elected. We have seen what our hate-filled President and a conservative Congress have accomplished, “Nothing”. This will be the end of our two-party government as the rules to elect our President will be changed to eliminate the weighted Electoral College method.

I suppose I should just ignore what is happening, live out my days ignoring the loss of freedoms we have already given up. That is what most Americans seem to desire including some in my own family. That will not happen as long as I am alive and I do hope my heirs have a better life than I have lived.

I proudly display my Conservative views with a bumper sticker on my car. It has a picture of an Eagle with the following words;

“I WILL FIGHT SOCIALISM UNTIL HELL FREEZES OVER, THEN I WILL FIGHT ON THE ICE!

Harvard Graduate??????

Harvard educated First Lady Michelle Obama reminded attendees of a naturalization ceremony Wednesday that the Founding Fathers weren’t born in America. 

The ceremony for 50 new U.S. citizens was held at the National Archives in Washington, D.C                                                                      

She said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence, “It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history, and like the 50 of you, none of them were born American – they became American.”                                                

Excuse me?                         

Did she actually mean that those who signed the Declaration of Independence and participated in the drafting of the Constitution were not born in America?  

Benjamin Franklin was born in Pennsylvania.

Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James Madison were born in Virginia. 

John Adams was born in Massachusetts.                                              

Only eight of the 56 were not born in America.                         

Surely she knew this.                                               

But, then again, maybe not. After all, is she really a Harvard Graduate?  

“Life’s tough, Pilgrim, it’s tougher when you are stupid”. John Wayne                                       

I received this message from an unquestionable source and it reinforces my perception that our First Lady must have studied “Harvard Beets” instead of American history anywhere. Even if one of her supposedly highly educated and expensive staff prepared her speech, a Harvard graduate would have known it was just another lie to confuse new citizens. In fact the new citizens should have known this if they are qualified to be Americans.   

If she did graduate from Harvard I question whether I would recommend their school to anyone. I am sure biased newscasters from MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, Juan Williams, Bob Bekel and Alan Colmes will refute this story, if ever asked. Well maybe not as they all may also be Harvard graduates. If any of them ever graduated from anywhere might be a better question? Most likely they also work for the national Democratic Party.

Our First Lady practiced law before her law license was revoked. God help the clients she serviced. Mull this thought over as it has several possible scenarios you might come up with. Lying must be a prime required subject in every law school and everyone in Washington today did not graduate from Harvard. The all do pass the test of being proficient liars.

Hillary will do much better with all of the national networks as they all will be owned by the Clinton Foundation by then. I hear they are bidding on buying four seats on the Supreme Court from the Democratic National Committee. She will be able to add a couple of more Progressive-Liberals in the next 8 years and who cares. I do!

WOW – THINGS DID GET WORSE!

You may have noticed that I have not written an article since April 27th. Spring is my favorite season so I decided to ignore the news for a few days and see if things improve. Week before last I spent the entire week with my friend, John Sommers, in his boat fishing no farther than 1000 yards from our house. When he returned home to Baton Rouge I spent all last week playing golf six straight days. This morning I tuned in on Fox News and today’s headlines and “surprise” our six years of bad news just got worse.

Sitting in a boat or my golf cart these several days I had day dreamed that with Eric Holder gone the Obama designed plan to use racism to divide Americans would ease up.

Wrong, the Mayor went berserk and the Chief Prosecutor of Baltimore filed murder charges against six police officers for apparently allowing a drug dealer to kill himself without taking time to investigate facts. To make things more intense and stir up Obama and Eric Holders war against police officers nationwide, Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings again went ballistic. This all happened so fast Al Sharpton was so busy stirring up hate in Ferguson Missouri he missed out fanning the fires in person.

Elijah screamed so loud he flushed out our new US Attorney General, Loretta Lynch who immediately repeated Holders over-reaction of investigating the police in Missouri by creating an investigation of the Baltimore police department. These six police officers will eventually be freed but their lives have been destroyed by our hate filled raciest President, Democrats in Congress and the out of control and leaderless Justice Department. The sad part is our Political Supreme Court just watches this madness and does nothing to stop the racial wars and the designed plan to incite people to kill police officers. With the killing of two police officers in Hattiesburg the headlines today reported that makes forty officers killed this year.

America has no leadership or common sense anymore and it will be several months before we have a chance to wave goodbye to Obama. Unfortunately the Republicans will slaughter each other and it’s a cinch that Hillary Clinton will increase the race to Marxism.

Unfortunately my dreams that Juan Williams and Bob Beckel would not still be on Fox News was just a dream. I am waiting to see when Obama will report that the storm that hit Myrtle Beach and the tornados that hit Texas and Oklahoma in today’s news was a result of global warming. He will blame the Republicans for their refusal to let the United Nations govern the United States and the weather.

Although today’s news headlines do not focus on Obama and John Kerry’s desire to allow Iran to accelerate its ability to make nuclear weapons it does have some new twists. We are still racing to make Cuba a friend again. Kerry is off to Moscow to kiss Putin’s feet for some secret reason. President Obama’s unsolicited plan to host a middle-east Gulf summit will not be attended by the Kings of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

We can all be assured that our President has now pissed off every nation on earth that were our friends and it appears that by the end of his Presidency he will have pacified every enemy we ever had. One thing is certain, he has destroyed America’s images of being a peaceful and world leading democratic Republic form of government. He has incited more unrest in America and the world than anyone in history. If we do have another civil war in America, he will have succeeded in his designed desires.

Fellow Americans we are in trouble, if you are happy with watching this self-destruction just keep the Democrats in power. Sharia law is coming and for all of the women who keep the Democrats in power, Burkas will be uncomfortable in the summer.

I may just stop reading the news and only fish and play golf full time. This will make the Progressive-Liberals happy I am sure. Comments????

APRIL “FOOLS” DAY – A NEW HOLIDAY!

I AM STARTING A DRIVE TO MAKE APRIL FIRST A NEW HOLIDAY FOR EVERYONE BUT GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES.  A DAY TO GIVE EVERYONE ELSE A FULL TWENTY FOUR HOURS TO REVIEW GOVERNMENT PERFORMANCE OVER THE PAST YEAR. I HOPE THE MEDIA WILL HELP GET THIS NEW HOLIDAY APPROVED AND HELP WAKE UP ENOUGH AMERICANS TO DEMAND “COMMON SENSE” RETURN TO WASHINGTON. SOME STATES NEED A SIMILAR PROGRAM FOR THEIR OPERATIONS. 

TO START THE PROCESS I WILL SHARE FACTS I RECEIVED THIS MORNING FROM CONNIE E. THIS HIGHLIGHTS SOME THE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY TO PROMOTE GOOFY ISSUES TO CREATE HATE AND DIVIDE AMERICANS  EVERY WAY THEY CAN.

TAKE A LOOK AT A FEW FACTS  ABOUT SOME THINGS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS CREATED OVER THE YEARS. WE HAVE A FINE WEAPON NAMED THE “TOMAHAWK” MISSILE. HOW ABOUT THE “APACHE”, BLACKHAWK”, “KIOWA”, AND “LAKOTA” HELICOPTERS. OBAMA ACTUALLY USED THE OLD WORD WE HAVE HEARD FOR YEARS WHEN PARATROOPS JUMP, “GERONIMO” TO NAME THE MISSION TO KILL OSAMA BIN LADEN.

NOW WE HAVE THE BUFFON’S IN CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE “CZARDOM” SCREAMING TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE WASHINGTON “REDSKINS”. 

PLEASE SEND ME YOUR FAVORITE EXAMPLES OF US GOVERNMENT EVENTS THAT CAN BE SHARED AS EXAMPLES OF TRYING TO DIVIDE AMERICANS AND WASTE MONEY. I WOULD HAVE LISTED “HOW TO DESTROY GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS”, BUT THE FOOLS HAVE FINALLY AROUSED THE ATTENTION OF THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA.

THE WHITE SIDE OF THE STORY

My friends Mike & Emma Cobb sent me the following message that has no source identified. I do not know how or if Pat Buchanan actually wrote this as a letter, published it as an op-ed or actually broadcast it on his CNN show but the message is factual and represents many Americans views. The Democrats will scream that Obama is no longer running but then neglect to say who is running. How soon people forget that Clinton was called our “First Black President”. He was just a tool for his Marxists and beloved wife Hillary and her radical friends to do the same things Obama has done. If you think Obama is a radical put on your seatbelt as Hillary will skip Socialism and finish the Progressives goal to make America a Communists society. Then you will no longer own anything. Racism is the only way they can divide America and they have perfected the way to use it. Laugh now but when they take your savings and property your kids can shed the tears.  C Brewer

THE STORY

This is the reason CNN has dropped Buchanan. It’s like Newt G. Said, “you’re not supposed to bring up uncomfortable Facts.”

Finally………….It is Said Publicly. I have never seen the white side explained better!

Pat Buchanan had the guts to say it. It is about time!!

BUCHANAN TO OBAMA

By Patrick J. Buchanan

You say we need to have a conversation about race in America. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to…. This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard.

And among them are these:

First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. Jeremiah Wright ought to go down on his knees and thank God he is an American.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks — with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas — to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??

Obama talks about new ‘ladders of opportunity’ for blacks. Let him go to Altoona? And Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for ‘deserving’ white kids…? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America’s fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?

Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?

As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?

Is Obama aware that black-on-white rapes are 100  times (1000 %) more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times (1390 %) as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena. And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites that are real, we hear nothing.

Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago. This needs to be passed around because, this is a message everyone needs to hear!!!

OK……….will you pass it on? I did but will you?

Because I’m for a better America. I am Not racist, Not violent, We just want peace, Just not silent anymore.

In GOD we trust

Obama, said today “race relations is better now, then when he took office 6 years ago”. 

I think he went the psycho mushroom festival in Colorado today.   ANON

AMERICAN VETERANS CARE – RED TAPE AND DISCRIMINATION!

THE US GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE ASHAMED.

I sincerely hope this article makes you sick. The only people we have treated worse than the Indians, including illegal aliens, are our military veterans. I am extremely qualified to state the facts and verify the specific facts documented in the letter I ask to post as I am a veteran of the military. I am not a veteran of any combat or foreign service although I have likely visited and worked in more foreign countries, thirty-two to be specific, than 96% of every lobbyist, Congressman or the White House “Kingdom”. I volunteered and with my parents approval, I joined the US Navy Reserve in 1947 when I was 17. The Korean War seemed imminent and I volunteered for active duty in April 1948 and was honorably discharged on August 30, 1952. I had to serve an additional year as all enlistments were extended during the Korean war.

I only ask one time for any federal veteran benefit, some help with some uninsured drugs, and it was denied because I was earning more than the current poverty level. I did earn a military funeral but I have ask my wife not to even notify anyone from our government except my Federal Entitlement benefit that used to be called Social Security so they will not harass her. Writing this blog demands that I read facts and when I read a copy of this letter in our weekly local Sabine County Reporter, it disturbed me deeply. To even think we treat our veterans worse than illegal aliens is unbelievable. In essence an eligible veteran is treated worse by our government than the Democrats and illiterates (some are not both), who never worked or intend to work and draw welfare.

Even Medicaid is more responsive as the new VA Choice Card. The fact that all doctors in rural areas are not qualified is just another bureaucratic waste of time and money. The fact that our only hospital director or Board had no information is just another way to deny veterans benefits equal to aliens. They should be given the same benefits as I receive with Medicare and the government should pay their deductibles and premiums that I have to pay. Shut down the Veterans hospitals or make them available to everyone. Set the veterans free from oppression.

Please read this and pass this on to everyone you know. The really sad part is that the media, including Fox, has reported this change as an added benefit to our veterans. For Gods sakes how can what this letter describes be viewed as an improvement of any kind.

Bob Kustermann  is a good friend on mine along with all of the other veterans in Sabine County Texas.

Dear Sir,

I am writing to ask for your help with the new VA Choice Card. I received mine about a month and a half ago and called the number that was on the card to make sure I was qualified for this benefit, which it turns out, I am.

I live in Hemphill, Texas with the nearest VA clinic in Lufkin, Texas, approximately 60 miles away. The information I received indicated that if you live more than 40 miles from the nearest VA clinic or your VA appointment was more than 30 days away, you could see a local doctor.  The VA also indicated that our local hospital, Sabine County Hospital, and local doctors are currently eligible to participate. 

When I first called, the VA asked for my information and said for me to call back in 7 days  to see if I was qualified.  The VA then informed me that if I needed an appointment with a local doctor to call them back and the VA would set up the appointment.  The VA then informed me it would take another 7 days to get this appointment approved, taking 14 days from the initial call to just schedule the appointment, not yet seeing a doctor for treatment.

One of my concerns is that I am required to have a physical exam twice a year.  In order to accomplish this I must travel the 60 miles to the Lufkin VA clinic two weeks in advance of my physical exam for blood work, and of course the 60 mile return trip, for a five-minute lab test.  I then have to make the 120 mile round trip two weeks later for the physical exam.  Many of the veterans I help in Sabine County cannot either physically make the trip to Lufkin or cannot financially afford the trip.

I recently was granted the opportunity to make a presentation on the VA Choice Card to our local Hospital Board.  Hospital Administrator Diana Taylor informed me that she has placed several phone calls and sent two emails to the VA within the past month requesting forms and other information to become eligible to participate in the program, but has received no response.

It is my understanding that there is only one local doctor that is eligible to participate in the program, but getting in to see him is a very lengthy process requiring the veteran to phone the VA and request an appointment with the local doctor; the veteran is then required to call the VA back in 5 to 7 days to find out when the appointment is scheduled with the local doctor; the appointment will likely be scheduled around 7 days away, with the total days spent now at 12 to 13 days; if a prescription is written by the doctor, it takes another 7 to 10 days to receive the medicine in the mail, making the total time thus far 19 to 23 days.

Common sense tells me that if a veteran has to wait up to 2 weeks for an appointment and 3 weeks before receiving medicine from the onset of their condition, the likelihood of the condition worsening, or become fatal, is a real possibility, requiring additional, and likely, more intense medical care.

The bureaucratic strings attached to the VA Choice Card are NOT helping veterans, but merely painting over and covering up systemic problems in a widely documented troubled agency.

Any assistance you can provide, not only to me but to all veterans to expedite their receipt of quality healthcare will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Robert Kustermann

I ask that you send a copy of this letter to every Congress Person, Governor, State Representative and Senator if you can get their address. Knowing Bob for many years and the hundreds of hours of community service he and many other veterans provide are vital for our rural County. My personal thanks to them all for all of their service.

WASHINGTON WITCHCRAFT- PART TWO

How man people listened to Hillary Clinton dance around the fact that she violated federal law by using a personal E Mail account all the time she served as Secretary of State representing the United States of America. Remember she is the likely Democratic candidate for election in 2016 to be President of the United States. She is a lawyer, wife of William Jefferson Clinton who served eight years as President of the United States.

I have followed the history of her activity and politics from the time her esteemed husband served as Governor of the great State of Arkansas. Her short-lived position with the Department of Justice made great credits for he resume when she was fired.

What really blew me away in her interview was her response that she had no second thoughts because others had done this in the past. Now analyze that simple revelation, “others have done it.”

Looking at history “others” have committed fraud, others have lied, others have evaded income taxes, others have accepted unlawful foreign money, others have been dis-barred and lost their law license, others have pardoned convicted felons, others have been impeached by Congress, others have committed adultery, others have committed voter fraud and I feel sure this list could involve more illegal activities.  One of those others, Richard Nixon, actually resigned from office when he was caught red-handed stealing and hiding opponents records.

We all know that her husband should have resigned but Democrats can escape punishment in America. When you look at what the others have done, Bill Clinton has actually done most of the actions. In fact Hillary has already committed several of these “other”actions all by herself.

If anyone who believes one word the Clinton’s utter will be anything that helps anyone other than themselves they are morons.They perfected the art of lying to a level unprecedented until Obama elevated lying to a new plateau well beyond their comprehension.

The really sad statement she made while running for President against Obama was her specific statement that the Bush administration violated the same laws she violated later. If there was a picture next to the definition of the word “Hypocrite” in the dictionary it would be a picture of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

If Hillary is nominated by the Democrats they have scrapped the bottom of the barrel searching for a “leader”. The only Democratic Presidents in recent history that might be worse leaders than the Clinton’s would be Lyndon Johnson and Obama. They all make Nixon look like a saint. At least he had the gonads to resign.   

Politicians are no longer expected to obey the laws and far too many Americans really don’t care.  I do!

GOVERNMENT SERVICES?

Has anyone experienced a massive increase in junk calls recently? Before you waste a lot of time this article might save you a lot of time. We are senior citizens who have earned the pleasure of sleeping later than normal who are sick of being awakened with a telephone call, often before 8am. The reverse of this is what is described as a Robocall we got recently at 9:45pm on a Sunday evening. These Robocalls are actually computers designed to call your number and when you answer there is no one there but shortly you receive another call from a person who knows you are home.

By the way the National Do-not-call list, provided by our Federal government is a waste of time like every other bureaucratic mis-managed service available. You have to register every year and it is worthless help. On February 19th I tried to see if another state agency was any better and sent the following message to the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUC).

“Starting at 8:04 this morning we have received 10 calls from 877-218-4381. It rings 4 times and hangs up. We are elderly and in addition we get 4 to six calls from various charities and as late as 9:45 last Sunday night. We are on the no call list and this is disturbing us deeply. It there anything we can do to stop this or should we stop our phone service that will not allow our children to check on us? Surely there must be a simple way to stop this intrusion? We could use cell service but unfortunately living close to the Louisiana border on Toledo Bend Lake we do not get 100% service and virtually none inside our house”.

I have tried to get some help from the PUC regarding the lousy electric service we have with the Deep East Texas Electric Co-Op for several years but the PUC is as useless as the Do-Not-Call program. The following is my rapid response, likely a prepared answer, with the errors you can see.

Subject: RE: Question

Mr. Brewer:

Thank you for contacting the Public Utility Commission of Texas. The No Call list is intended for legitimate Telemarketers that are selling goods or services.

If you find that you receive solicitation calls from telemarketers you may file a complaint. If the calls you are receiving are exempt from the No Call list(Debt Collectors, State Licensees, ect.) or are “scams” or harassing  you may contact the Attorney General of Texas at 1-800-621-0508 to file a complaint.

To file a No Call Complaint with the PUCT please provide the following information:

  • Your name, address, and telephone number
  • Telemarketers Name(if available) and telephone number
  • Date and Time of Calls

I responded with this short response; “I thought this was a complaint?” The following was their response.

Thank you for your recent correspondence. If the calls referenced in your initial email were made trying to sell you a product or service, please provide a description of the solicitation along with your address.

If the calls were harassing in nature( scams, hang ups, ect) you can report the calls to the Attorney General’s office at 1-800-621-0508.

Feel free to contact us if you have additional questions.

Sincerely,                 The same address was affixed.

Pay particular attention to the response from the PUC in red above and think deeply what they ask for you to do to file a complaint. The most impressive thing I noticed was the consistent misuse of the term “ect”, even my spell check shows the misuse. It is obvious that they are telling me if I have a complaint to contact the Attorney General of Texas to file a complaint. I have wasted enough time in the Federal/State bureaucracy’s. They are useless.

In the last 48 hours I have received calls from; 952-204-9839, 409-684-2209, 267-295-6632, 214-390-3145, 728-504-1509, 877-283-4162, 877-238-6733, 699-289-7430, 484-273-0072, 484-273-0072, 922-951-3210, 678-899-6533, 877-218-836, 786-284-5092, 520-448-8183, 415-802-2946, 817-717-9891, 409-625-4658, 609-208-7430, 504-272-2635.

We seldom answer any call if they don’t identify who they are. We have answered calls from insurance companies, charities, the Republican National Committee whose calls were not blocked by the Do-Not-Call program long after we re-registered again this year. Why do we have to re-register is a mystery but so is every aspect of our Federal government.   

I also have a fax line and so far I get few calls on this line. It has the ringer turned off and I don’t put ink in the printer. I had one sales call on this line while I was typing this article.

Surprisingly I get twice as much spam on my E mail accounts than irritable calls on my phones. Without any government meddling or control I can just hit a button on the PC and the caller who issues spam is blocked forever from sending me anymore spam. Fast, effective and free from government intervention and control.

But fear not my friends as this freedom is short lived as it was announced just this week that our “regulation gone-mad- government and our President” has decided that the internet needs to be controlled by the government. Read the following link and get ready for more spam you can’t block when the idiots get control of one more freedom. In fact the prime reason for the FCC regulations move is to immediately block people like me from expressing my opinions anymore.

I hope you are pleased with our bureaucracy today, I am not. I have run out of government agencies to help me stop harassment by telephone. I just ordered a blocker to stop the Robocalls but the government will probably outlaw them next.

Oh, we got our first irritating call today at 7:34am  from someone named “Willcox at 520-254-0154. This will be the first number I enter in the new blocker when it arrives Thursday. I will also send a copy of this post to the PUCT so they can correct their form letters.
