    Re: The American Legion Strongly Opposed to President's Plan to Charge Wounded Heroes

    As a veteran my first reaction to this was "what the **** are you doing Mr. President?" I am hyper sensitive to any mention of messing with veterans benefits. I agree with most of those here that these benefits were absolutely earned and very much deserved. However after reading much about this issue I don't think there was anything nefarious going on. I just think that Obama floated a very bad idea that someone in his circle of advisers concocted and pitched to him as an "everybody wins" type of thing. I seriously doubt he dreamed this up himself. His commitment to this idea was obviously very weak as it was dropped rather quickly. It also faced by-partisan opposition which is very important considering some of the retarded bull**** that was being slung here about the left hating our troops (a big "go **** yourself" to the haters on that one). Now we can speculate why Obama backed off so quickly, and I know that we will all have our opinions. It has definitely made me look at him with a more critical eye, but I'll live.

    Regardless, it was dropped and that is very important. Our vets deserve the very best we can give them, without question.

    And a big shout out to my man jallman...I think I may have reached close to double digit thanks in this thread because of your work here. You know why. I laughed my ass off at a couple of posts in particular. Thank you good sir!
    Trump Derangement Syndrome, or TDS, affects millions of right wing Americans. Symptoms include frequent use of "whataboutisms," irrational rants about how the DNC, GOP, MSM, FBI, NSA, CIA, and FB are all conspiring to get Trump, blaming Obama and/or Clinton for things Trump has done or is doing, and a bizarre admiration for Vladimir Putin. Known TDS vectors are Fox News and the @RealDonaltTrump twitter feed.

    Good job aps.
    Please prove your assertion above. Give us links with percentages. Also define the concept "virtually the entire" so we can be clear.

    Thank you.

    All you need to do is show you understand the concept of socialized health care. But you won't because you can't.

    And because of that, my position and opinion of your position stands...no matter how much bluster you post. You still lose.

    What I find interesting is that most folks, left and right, are pretty unified on this issue. The VA is a socialized health care entity, one that our military and veterans absolutely deserves, and Obama's plan was idiotic and should, under no circumstances my put in place. I think those on the right should keep in mind those here on the left who supported the military in this situation, just as those on the left need to keep in mind those on the right who showed no hypocrisy in their position.

    Could I also point out, though, that those on the right under no circumstance believe that this should be extended to the entire country. We would like to pay for our own healthcare in the civilian world.

    Absolutely...and thanks for adding that. I forgot to put it in my post. I would venture to guess that some lefties would agree with this. I, for one, do not believe that non-military citizens should be entitled to the same benefits as the military. If you want them, put on a uniform and serve your country.

    And I would like to add, non-partisan of course, that Obama has finally kept a campaign promise of bringing dems and repubs together here by "floating" this rediculous idea.
