If I prefer to go out of the United States to a country where they are actually curing cancer, that is my choice also. Don't get smart with me-you know exactly what I am talking about. If not-there is a pill for that. Again I say to you-why are we the most medicated and sickest country in the world? and everyone is clamoring for more medication and more sickness! Many people equate taking medication with getting better-as evidenced by the people of the United States, it isn't working.

Major Solheim continues to be on active duty and currently resides in North Carolina.
All thanks to the Obama Administration. Republicans argued to slash funding to help American war veterans. In fact, republicans betrayed all of our U S veterans by defeating President Obama's Veterans with Disabilities Act."Forty Republican members of the United States Senate betrayed veterans today when they decided that denying President Obama a victory was more important than spending $1 billion to create jobs for vets.

The Veterans Job Corps Act of 2012 would have spent $1 billion over five years to put veterans to work tending to federal lands, and in the nation’s police and fire departments. Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) based her plan of FDR’s Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), but Republicans opposed the bill because they said there is no proof that it would work.

Republican Sen. Tom Coburn claimed that there is no evidence that jobs for vets will work,“What we have is a bill that’s brought to the floor that has good intentions behind but shows the absolute laziness of congress in terms of really digging things out. issued their duplication report on the job training programs for veterans, four of them do exactly the same thing. None of them have a metric. So we don’t know if they’re working, and we haven’t held a hearing to find out if they’re working. But what are we doing?”

It doesn’t matter to most Senate Republicans that the CCC put 2.5 million people to work. When confronted with an actual jobs program for America’s vets, including the 220,000 who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, the majority of Republicans claimed the plan, which was already offset, was too expensive.

Bush didn’t chose to retire in a lethargic swoon to lick his wounds, but continues to challenge himself – this time by learning to paint in oils. Mindlessly doodling a year ago opened the door to all this creativity and attention – and who’d have thought?

With encouragement from friends and family and inspiration from Winston Churchill (via his book “Painting as a Pastime”) GWB decided to give art a chance. Describing to the Dallas Morning News his “great delight in busting stereotypes,” Bush added that he studies privately with an artist and paints almost daily.

What does he have to lose after being leader of the free world, the complexities of post-9/11 and almost universal excoriation in the press? Bush has the kind of thick cowboy hide a fledging artist can find useful when facing critics … or their own insecurities. His art was brought to public without his permission when a hacker sent three years worth of family photos and email to various Internet sites.

Some art writers have become unexpected bedfellows and cheerleaders of this new manifestation of George W Bush.

here's another stat for you: do you want to pay for these drug addicted morons? "Experts say most of those prescriptions are unnecessary. The United States makes up only 4.6 percent of the world's population, but consumes 80 percent of its opioids -- and 99 percent of the world's hydrocodone, the opiate that is in Vicodin."
http://abcnews.go.com/US/prescription-painkil...

Opioids are essentially legal heroine-O'bama better keep that war going in Afghanistan so he can continue to feed his people on O'bamacare.

Ever wonder why insurance costs so much? because of the people-the people in the United States are druggies-sick, infected, mental case druggies.

Many have by now forgotten the legislative skullduggery that the Democrats, who controlled both houses of Congress at the time, used to pass this monstrosity called O'bamacare tax. The Senate took a bill that had been passed by the House of Representatives, the “Service Members Home Ownership Act of 2009,” and removed every syllable. Then, the bill’s verbiage was replaced with that of a health care bill written by Democrat Senator Max Baucus with a little help from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and President O'bama’s creatures at the White House.
