    As a Vietnam vet, I qualify for VA medical benefits. They set me up with a series of appointments for tests and said I would hear from them. Then I received five containers of pharmaceuticals in the mail, drugs with horrific side effects which I immediately returned unopened. I just received a bill from the VA for over $400. As for the drugs, they tell me I can’t return them and they can’t stop sending them until the prescription runs out in 2 years.

    I don’t expect to be rewarded for serving my country. But I don’t expect to be punished either.

    In addition to the drugs, I was prescribed and issued glasses, which I have returned three times because they make my vision worse. But I have to pay for them anyway (not the glasses themselves but the eye doctor charges $50 per appointment).

    I will never go back to a VA hospital again.

    ““When I was your age”…”I had to walk five miles to school in the snow, uphill, both ways.""

    And I was thankful to do it. Yes, THANKFUL."

    Being cute with someone’s name does not constitute a valid or cogent argument for or against anything.

    You want to give non-violent (mostly drug) offenders what amounts to a death penalty?

    Your tongue may be in your cheek, but it is not noticible because your head is so far up your ass it doesn’t show.

    Yeah! As we used to say in the military—BOHICA.

    Bend Over, Here It Comes Again!

    That’s the problem…they are not even supposed to be leaders. They are our representatives. Leaders are part of dictatorships. At least, according to our Constitution.

    “Obama stating that you can not go back to the statue quo means what? "

    What is a “quo” and why did they make a statue of it?

    " @Harleyquinn

    I think of your posts as examples of “stream of unconsciousness”."

    Good one! Actually, Joyce’s Molly Bloom made more sense than this guy.

    “Of course Food Stamps and SNAP contribute nothing whatsoever to personal responsibility and self reliance. But they do generate votes for the democrats and that’s what the handouts are all about.”

    As you do unto the least of these, you do unto me.
