SATURDAY UPDATE: The White House said President Donald Trump held a meeting to discuss the Department of Veterans Affairs while at Mar-a-Lago Saturday night. “This evening President Trump had another meeting, including dinner, concerning the Department of Veterans Affairs and how to turn it around for the benefit of our great veterans,” the White House said in a summary of Trump’s day. “Great progress is being made and will be reported on in the future.” Trump had said Friday that the meeting was scheduled for that evening at his “Southern White House.” A White House spokeswoman later told The Palm Beach Post

Yet the noose-media would have you believe every trip to Mar-a-Largo is a vacation...

I sure hope he can get the VA straightened out.I am friends with a couple that are so frustrated by the health care the VA is providing the husband. For over a year he has been dealing with driving to Richmond( a 4 hour one way trip) and now they are saying that MAYBE he doesn´t have MS. The trips are costly in gas and tolls and the days are exhausting, usually a 16 hr day that includes travel and appointments. The poor guy is totally exhausted for a week. He is in his early 50´s and has always been active. Not only does he need quality healthcare but also some help monetarily because the visits cost out-of-pocket.

Sorry for the second post. I have assisted in a small way with 3 sets of round trip tickets for the toll on the bridge-tunnel. Those tickets were given to me for use when I was visiting my terminal husband in the nursing home in Virginia Beach. I did not use them all and I asked the lady that provided them if I could re-gift them to this couple. I am in no position to help them monetarily so I help them by giving them homemade breads, garden vegs, and anything else I have that they could use.

#2&4, I believe your friend should insist getting private care at a local facility. The VA can provide this to him/her. I suggest that your friend contact their congressional representative and make this happen. The VA will hold out providing the private service to our vets for job security. If your friend gets a run around, send an e-mail or call the Director of Veterans Affairs in DC.

President Trump can turn around the VA starting with this Step 1:

Get rid of the union and make the VA a Right-to-Work agency.

Does anyone ever remember Smidgen actually working on any of his weekend jaunts to the nation´s golf courses? If he did anything official at all, it was a fund raiser, just so he would be able to get US to pay for the trip.

Lesson for everyone, in and out of government: if you are ever invited to an afternoon working meeting with President Trump, you might want to bring an overnight bag, because you´re not leaving until problems are clearly identified, solutions crafted, and implementation plans worked out.

Can´t any of you see the entire VA issue is nothing but a political emotion maker for the right? The Deep State uses the VA and us vets in the exact same way Jesse Jackson uses racism; an issue that will NEVER be solved because it gets YOUR votes when "conservative" Senator X and "conservative" Representative Y vows to "clean up the VA." If it ever is fixed, their vote getting issue is lost. It needs to be gotten rid of. It´s a false promise and nothing more and many of us vets are sick and tired of being a "conservative" political football. The VA is the way it is BY DESIGN and will NEVER change as long as there is much fretting and strutting over the political issue it maintains. And, we´re also tired of something else; the meaningless "thank you for your service" as if your thanks makes any difference at all. It doesn´t and it´s condescending so please knock it off.

#10, thank you for the insight about how the “Republican” pols use the VA just as the “Dhim” pols use the Black community. I had never thought of it in the terms of a never-ending problem vote-getter.

As to the “thank you for your service” I can see where it is totally fake, especially those coming from the Progressive Socialist crowd in their snotty condescending tone. However, I had an experience while I was Trumping that grabbed my heart. I was making copies of our first debate party at a local copy shop. The man ahead of me had an array of military photos from the mid 1960’s with lots of palm trees. I asked him if he had served in Vietnam. He said no, he was in Central America fighting Marxist guerillas. I thanked him for his service. He was surprised and a bit taken aback. He said that no one had ever said that to him before, and he was most grateful.

#10 – you are my favorite pessimist, but don’t make the mistake that all veterans find the “thank you for your service” as an empty phrase. God bless you, Mrs. G2P, and all out veterans.

MAGA

#2: Tell your friend to call Veteran´s Choice (866 606 8198) and arrange to see a private physician locally. He qualifies if the closest VA facility is over 35 miles away.

I´m not a shill, just another vet trying to help out.

Anecdotal, no. 3 but telling, never-the-less. I have a "Retired USAF" decal in the rear window of my pickup. Went to the local supermarket and when I returned to my truck with a bag of groceries a 20-something guy was waiting by the tail gate. Don´t know how long he had been standing there, but he asked if it was mine and when I admitted to it he offered his hand and thanked me for my service. I hardly think it was condescending or meaningless on his part, considering he waited for me. Me? I appreciate it, although I´m also a little embarrassed. I figure that all my service entitles me to was my active duty pay and the retirement checks i receive every month. The government does still owe me the supposed " good" VA care that was implied while I was on active duty however.

I´m also a vet tho not a retired one. I only spent 8yrs on active duty and 6 more as an active reservist. However, even tho I´m allowed to use the VA medical system, I don´t.
And the reason is because since I joined the USAF I´ve heard horror after horror story about the VA medical system. I even have a friend that was paralyzed from the waist down due to them injected a medicine into his spine in order seen if there was any thing wrong with his spine. Turns out that the medicine was outlawed in Europe back in 1949! So, I avoid the VA like the plague. I´m on Medicare part B and have another plan that picks up the slack that part B doesn´t cover. It´s pretty expensive, but I manage.

My reply to #2 was based on the information provided. Measured and accurate. I have elderly neighbors in need. Instead of suggesting they call the government to solve their problems, I pitch in, in any way necessary. These are fine, proud people who have raised their families and grown old and infirm. They ALWAYS try to pay, I never accept. I simply say, "You´ve done your job, now it´s time for me to do mine." Last summer, we buried one of them.

Charity is sorely lacking in the world today. I try to remember that God has been a helluva lot better to me than I´ve been to him. Even if I wanted to, I wouldn´t list the things I do to help. It takes the blessing out of it.

BTW, #2 is a fine example of a real neighbor, humbly doing her level best. I simply don´t want to encourage people to rely on the government for everything.

One other thing: I have received more damn chicken soup, cookies, brownies, lasagna, etc..., than I know what to do with. Always accepted with a smile and a thank you, plastic container returned within the week. Those desserts may kill me, but I refuse to waste anything.

Just shooting off my mouth.

Veterans Administration should sell all its hospitals and release all its physicians and nurses and convert the VA benefits to private insurance so that out vets can obtain services at the health care facility of their choice, governed by insurance coverage paid for by the VA for each veteran.

The VA is just socialized medicine. Lower quality of care at higher cost, with a layer of bureaucratic fat.

#3,#20- Just as some say a glass as half-empty, others say it as half-full, the perception of people varies and chances are many Ldotters read #3 as an intended form of kindness—as a suggestion for people to help others because there are, sadly, some individuals who would not consider offering a helping hand. Enjoy the reciprocal goodies!

#2,#4- Such compassion is sorely lacking in today’s fast-paced society and is treasured by recipients and believers. Blessings for “walking the walk” as revealed in Scripture, “As you do unto others…” (Matthew7:12, Luke6:31)

#14- Heartwarming account. Blessings for your USAF service.

My heartfelt sympathies to #2´s friend. Maybe the local Congress person can help.

President Trump is a workaholic. The scene might change but he is ALWAYS working. Compare and contrast to the former WH occupant who famously showed up for work at around 10, knocked off for his long lunch (where he usually enjoyed his fav $100 a lb. Kobe Beef hamburger) and knocked off early to prepare for his constant parties with his celeb. pals. Then there were his lenthy, frequent vacations at the nation´s most expensive watering holes, and his 300+ rounds of golf. Not at all surprising that the two actualities of the work ethics of Mr. Trump and Mr. Obama have been successfully swapped by the dishonest media.

Industry Analysts Say Whole Foods’

New market data has somehow managed to make Whole Foods’ beleaguered lot look even worse. On top of reports last week that rival Albertsons was sniffing around Sprouts Farmers Market, an upstart organic grocer and wellness store whose prices are about 19 percent cheaper on average than Whole Foods, there are now some new numbers suggesting the high-end grocery chain is also still hemorrhaging shoppers. Foot traffic has dipped once again, Barclays analysts note, straight-up describing the magnitude this time as “staggering.” Technically, it’s 3 percent, which can make “staggering” seem a little far-fetched — until you consider it translates

The evidence is now clear that the White House and Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, have worked together to halt what was previously billed as a sweeping investigation of Russian interference in last year’s election. “We’ve been frozen,” Jim Himes, a Democratic representative from Connecticut who is a member of the Committee, said.The freeze started after last Monday’s hearing, where James Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, revealed that the F.B.I. has been investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia since last July. Comey also said that there was no evidence

Matryoshkas are Russian nesting dolls. Inside each doll are several others smaller but identically shaped characters until you get to the smallest one inside. Studying what we have learned of the timeline -- and we still don’t have the entire story -- we see Wikileaks, the smallest, at the core, and Obama as the largest piece in what is the most historically outrageous misuse of the people and institutions of government for partisan advantage.

Devin Nunes just set the cat down among the pigeons. Two days after FBI Director James Comey assured us there was no truth to President Trump´s tweet about being wiretapped by Barack Obama, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said Trump may have had more than just a small point.The U.S. intelligence community, says Nunes, during surveillance of legitimate targets, picked up the names of Trump transition officials during surveillance of targets, "unmasked" their identity, and spread their names around, virtually assuring they would be leaked. If true, this has the look and smell of a conspiracy to sabotage the Trump

The story that Trump’s budget would kill the Meals on Wheels program was too good to check. But it was false. It made for great copy — irresistibly clickable and compulsively shareable. “Trump’s Budget Would Kill a Program That Feeds 2.4 Million Senior Citizens,” blared Time’s headline. “Trump Proposed Budget Eliminates Funds for Meals on Wheels,” claimed The Hill, in a piece that got 26,000 shares. But it was false.

The chances of that happening are approximately zero, but Trump can meet his critics partway.

Whatever else one can say about President Trump’s so-called travel ban, it has ignited a fabulous feud among the riders of the 9th United States Appeals Circuit. One has called the whole case a “folly” and likened it not just to a dog being wagged by its tail but also to a St. Bernard “being wagged by a flea on its tail.” It’s hard not to imagine that, from the high bench, the sages of the Supreme Court are enjoying the spectacle.

"Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes." Nunes caused an uproar last week when he told the press that he had seen intelligence showing that members of President Trump´s transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations — without first discussing the information with fellow committee members.

Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said.

New market data has somehow managed to make Whole Foods’ beleaguered lot look even worse. On top of reports last week that rival Albertsons was sniffing around Sprouts Farmers Market, an upstart organic grocer and wellness store whose prices are about 19 percent cheaper on average than Whole Foods, there are now some new numbers suggesting the high-end grocery chain is also still hemorrhaging shoppers.

The party didn’t just lose among rural white voters on Election Day, it may have failed to capture them in its pre-election polling as well. Many pollsters and strategists believe that rural white voters, particularly those without college degrees, eluded the party’s polling altogether — and their absence from poll results may have been both a cause and a symptom of Donald Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton in several states.

On the same day that the House of Representatives canceled its vote on Ryancare, Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks filed a simple one-line bill to repeal Obama’s signature health care law. The Huntsville Republican titled the bill ‘Obamacare Repeal Act.” It is short and to the point, AI.com reported. “Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill reads.
