Is Paul Ryan Trying To Get a
Section 8 Discharge From Politics?

Canada Free Press, by Mike Henkins

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 1/5/2014 3:13:58 PM

The award winning sitcom M*A*S*H of the ‘70s and early ‘80s was based on a surgical unit in Korea during the Korean War. One of the characters was Corporal Klinger, a soldier who dressed in woman’s clothing hoping to convince the Army he was insane and therefore would qualify for discharge per Section 8 of United States Army Regulations. I mention this because it is the only explanation that fits Paul Ryan’s agreement to cut military veteran benefits or, at least, the only acceptable explanation for veterans and the Republican Party base. In December of 2012, Paul Ryan (R.,WI) and Patty Murray

Comments:
Another indication that todays Republican party is not conservative, but merely the party of crony capitalism.

Ryan made a pretty good public display of committing political suicide by helping the Democrats squash already vested veterans retirement benefits. Unless he and the Republicans get that provision repealed, service members and veterans would have to be out of their minds to vote for him.

He can forget about Hispanics going out of their way to vote for him if he abandons his principles and facilitates a liberal Democrat amnesty. All the Democrats have to do to block any very unlikely Hispanic voter switch to the Republicans is put up an ethnic candidate against Ryan. Then he can say bye bye permanently.

As much as we all liked him as VP candidate, he has been showing his true colors over the past year. He is nothing more than an establishment republican.

He needed to choose between the conservative base and the establishment. I guess his money is on the establishment winning the intraparty war.

We will remember!

I realize that once Romney picked Ryan as his VP, Ryan´s Sainthood among the moderates here was established. But can one of you please defend these cuts? And defend the fact that Ryan even worked with that horrid Patty Murray, the woman that called Osama Bin Laden a hero for his good works at home. I´d need a shower just being in the same room with her. It´s just so wretched and disappointing that he could sit down with this creature and give her the one thing Democrats have wanted to get their claws on for decades. They´re still laughing at him I´m sure. What was he thinking?? And crickets from all his supporters here.

Here is my probably unpopular view.

The Dems demanded compromise -- or else nothing happens -- and Paul Ryan fed them a poison pill. They jumped on it and now there´s backlash. Everyone is awake now.

The COLA cuts for Veterans is just a bridge too far and has pished everyone off. It´s sacrificial on Paul Ryan´s part, but it´s like overstepping bait that the Dems took.

I think Paul Ryan will suffer some short term damage, but an awakened conservative and moderate electorate is a small price to pay for some temporary damage to an otherwise excellent Paul Ryan.

We are "MisUnderEstimating" Paul Ryan.

Paul Ryan fed the dems a poison pill in the compromise.

Now John Boehner needs to ensure Bayrock, Harry, and Nancy publicly eat the poison pill.

I disagree #10. The Veterans, their loved ones, and all those who support them are angry. I don´t think the establishment GOP and moderates could care less because anything Ryan does is gold. Oh and I´m sure the anti-military element on this forum are happy about these cuts.

Do the so-called establishment Republicans care more about the troops and veterans, or how much expensive military equipment that their big business constituents can sell to the military services?

Ryan´s action on the issue of veterans pensions should give you a good idea.

What do Canadians know, eh? Paul may have been pressured but he wasn´t being waterboarded. He threw the Rats a bone and can save his rear end by saying he gave in so we can use this highly emotional issue as a major opportunity in the upcoming campaign to reverse it and give these vets a retroactive increase. Do you think that will get the military vote? It could be a stroke of genius or a stroke of stupidity on Ryan´s part. I will just wait it out.

If this is a "poison pill" why is Ryan still eating it? Even some Democrats are trying to undo these cuts while Ryan continues to defend them. He is a fool committing political seppuku to the plaudits of our friends from the GOP suicide squad.

Paul Ryan´s doubling down continues as it is the only way to keep the poison circulating. If people are not talking about it, the issue goes away. Paul Ryan is one of the few on the right that has the strength to carry the Krypotonite.

Ann Coulter was recently interviewed by author, journalist and talk radio host Howie Carr on his program; her commentary was pure establishment balderdash. Ann may plead hyperbole, but her sentiment is readily apparent. Among the pearls of wisdom: Carr: “Who are you for, for president right now, Ann?” Coulter: “Um…well, don’t tell’em, but I’m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest; flying out, kidnapping him, and depriving him of sleep, food and water until he agrees to run again.” Carr: “You’re kidding.” Coulter: “No” Carr: “You really want him to run again?”

House Speaker John Boehner’s top allies are racing out the door to retirement, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday. Top Boehner allies that are retiring in 2014 include four committee chairmen: Reps. Mike Rogers (R-MI) of the Intelligence Committee, Buck McKeon (R-CA) of the Armed Services Committee, Doc Hastings (R-WA) of the Natural Resources Committee and Dave Camp (R-MI) of the Ways and Means Committee. One of Boehner closest friends, Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA), is retiring this year, and another—Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID)—may lose his seat in a primary in Idaho against conservative Bryan Smith.

During the debates surrounding the adoption of the Constitution by the several states, one commentator observed that "the government should be so small that it doesn´t matter who wins." Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment. Gone are the days when GOP leaders would defend valiantly the principles of limited government, the rule of law, and the rights and duties of individual

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

Trey Gowdy is a busy guy, and an up-and-coming senator says he should be on the Supreme Court. ? Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company. Gowdy entered the House in the 2010 Tea Party wave along with three other freshman South Carolina Republicans: Tim Scott, Jeff Duncan, and Mick Mulvaney. The four were nicknamed

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

Russia’s invasion of Crimea is a tipping point event that will further spur the American oil boom. The European Union (EU) and United States in 2008 threatened to slap economic sanctions on Russia for invading Georgia. But after a while the criticism faded and threats of sanctions were quietly dropped, because the EU is almost entirely reliant on Russia for energy supplies. A similar situation is unfolding today as the EU and U.S. are again making empty threats that they will stop exports of Russian oil and gas as punishment for invading the Ukraine. But due to the latest humiliation by

House Speaker John A. Boehner, who has tangled repeatedly with the right wing of the Republican Party, has not been invited to this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, a major snub at the annual gathering and a sign of the top Republican officeholder’s struggle to find common ground with grass-roots activists. People familiar with CPAC’s planning, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity, said the American Conservative Union, which hosts the event, never sent an invitation to Mr. Boehner, in part because it wanted the focus this year to be on leading conservative thinkers at the grass-roots level and not

As a result of all this, Burton was supposed to have stood trial on the 18th February 2014 at Birmingham Magistrates´ Court. However, that court appearance has been postponed for seven weeks.

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
