Dayum... didn't know I was that fat... but hey, I agree with your point. Truman was one of the sorriest SOBs to occupy the White House. I hold him in the same contempt as Bush Jr... two unprepared imbeciles who had no value for humanity. But as you said, we were helping the French rather than taking the reins. That said, the blame for the war lies with LBJ for lying us into it and Nixon for keeping it going.
not sure where the fatso came from - one of those buzz fart moments - truly sorry(not so much for the comment as for a buzz gone wrong!!(<:)

Physical suffering and the VA bureaucracy tend to change one's outlook on life... and everything else.
Carlton,
Speaking of the VA bureaucracy, I don't know if you've heard of Tommy Sowers - he's a fairly new man near the top of the Veterans administration. He is from Rolla. Within the last year or so, Obama appointed Sowers as the Assist. Secretary of Public & Intergovermental Affairs at the Dept. of Veterans Affairs.

This is a young man WE MIGHT WANT TO KEEP AN EYE ON! He is a very very intelligent & has seved in Iraq & I believe was injured while on tour of duty there.

Anyway, He's earned a PHD and had been working as a professor here in Rolla at the University of Science & Technology - but quit that position to run (unsucessfully) against Jo Ann Emerson for her seat in the house of representatives in 2010.

Recently I saw him intervied on tv - and he is QUITE IMPRESSIVE! He has a sincerity & caring that really shines through on the screen. He is pushing hard to have all VA claims comuterized to speed up the procces of getting benefits. It was brought to attention on that show - that claims filed by computer have a quicker response than those who are handled the old fashioned way on paper.

On election day in 2010, Tommy Sowers was standing outside at the polling place where I voted (here in Rolla) and I had an opportunity to have a good conversation with him. It is amazing how his sincerity & goodness shines through.

He is the type of person that really makes such an impession on you that you don't forget. I never will forget seeing him standing there greeting people carrying a big American flag.

His family is well known here in Rolla. His grandfather started the newspaper here in Rolla & run it for 40 year, then his son (Tommy's uncle ran the newspaper for over 20 years). My oldest son has worked with his family for years.

Anyway, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if we don't see Tommy Sowers in congress - or in some other high capacity in goverment someday soon. It is so very obvious that he has the intellect that few politicans seem to have these days. He also has the caring & the sincerity. Sort of like Pres. Kennedy, Clinton & Obama...

Why don't you check him out on the internet...

Dough Boy,
This conversation is over! Talking to you is about like trying to talk to a rock!
Alumni,

There you go again. Running away from the issue instead of meeting it head on.

JFK had many affairs when he was in office. It is well documented and even the main stream media admits he has his affairs.

I applaud JFK and his older brother Joe for going into combat during WWII instead of using the family political influence to get a nice, soft, cushy job in the Pentagon or some place else stateside. Of course that might not have jived with the plans that their father had for their political careers but that doesn't matter. They served and faced the hell of combat. I tip my hat to them for that.

You have dressed JFK and his family up as some sort of demi-gods when in truth, they were simply people. They had their good points and their bad points.

There is your truth Alumni. Why can't you accept it?

You could have made a much shorter post by saying this:

He is a liberal progressive who totally agrees with me on everything.

I must admit…

John F Kennedy is on my top 25 list of favorite dope headed whore mongers. After all, he did try and invade Cuba after Castro took over…

Well, he didn’t really try, but he did allow a bunch of Cuban Patriots borrow some landing craft and get slaughtered in the Bay of Pigs.

What can I say? The man did his best. I can see Sir Lancelot doing the same thing.

Comrade,
It's obvious you're WAY TOO YOUNG to realize THE CUBAN MISSILE RISIS WAS THE MOST DANGEROUS MOMENT IN U.S. HISTORY!!!

That's right, the IF the cuban missile crisis been fully executed, it's a possibility that NEITHER YOU OR I WOULD EVEN BE ALIVE TODAY! Had it been mishandled - we could have easily been involved in a NUCLEAR WAR WITH THE SOVIET UNION in 1962!!!

But, first let me ask you, why do some people judge the Bay of Pigs as JFK's fault? Shouldn't the blame fall on Eisenhower?

Kennedy was only following Eisenhower's plans as recommended by his chiefs of staff! Then when it failed & they wanted air support - naturally, JFK declined! Cuba was a Soviet ally. Would you really have wanted to risk Soviet retaliation???

Do you not realize the Bay of Pigs was Eisenhower's idea from the get go (he planned it all out). Eisenhower wanted to estabish a legitamate government in Cuba.

But just like Nixon AUTHORIZED the moon landing - that doesn't mean Nixon gets credit for it! Neither should JFK be blamed for a plan that Eisenhower initiated.

Yes, JFK inherited Eisenhower's plan, but in the beginning, he did not fully understand the ramifications of executing the plan. He soon realized he'd been suckered into a pool of quicksand and he backed out as soon as he realized he was in a position he would have difficulty expaining or extracting from.

Yes, while JFK cannot be blamed for the Bay of Pigs situation - JFK certainly gets credit for SAVING THE U.S FROM THE POSSIBILITY OF NUCLEAR WAR & quite possibly the very lives of many us Americans...

Alumni,

You are something else. I made two posts about talking the truth and you evaded answering either one. In one of those posts I even complimented JFK and his older brother Joe and you won't dignify that with a response. That is called duck and run.

I am interested in knowing one thing. Why do you persist in trying to insult me by calling me Dough Boy. considering the term Dough Boy was given to the American fighting men of WWI, I am honored to be called Dough Boy

- hey, you are trying a logical approach - remember the other party of your conversation - she doesn't believe in half of the bs she puts on here - she said long ago that she loved to piss people off (maybe not in those exact words)- she was out of touch when growing up on Jefferson and is still out of touch - for some, the light never comes on!!

Tiger,

I honestly don't remember saying that she doesn't believe half of what she says. I have asked the question, "Are you so naive that you honestly believe that?" I was seeking confirmation that she really believed what it was she said.

How will this impact the old Negro population?
Will they be able to understand the new rules?
Want to cut costs. Deny medical care to illegal
aliens. They are bankrupting our hospitals in the
southwest. If our government had any balls they
would withhold any aid until bills for their
citizens care is paid.

Moltke,

You asked a good question but shouldn't it be how will it affect all American Elderly?

I can't agree with denying medical care to anyone, legal or illegal. What I would recommend is to hold them financially accountable. Don't let them fade back into the woodwork. Have them pay at least a certain percentage of their bill instead of letting earn money here and shipping it back "home" where that is.

Tiger,

I guess I am bit of an optimist. I would like to think that I could people on here who can honestly enter into debate of an issue,discuss it honestly without the name calling, personal attacks, and bullying. Perhaps we could find a solution or at least agree on a potential solution that we could, all of us, contact out elected officials and promote to get them to try to take it further.
