Where Do Vets Stand on Shinseki?

Out of the total group polled, only 17 percent believed that Secretary Shinseki should resign. A whopping 60 percent said he should not resign, with 23 percent saying they weren't sure yet.

The American Legion has called on Shinseki to resign. As of yet, I don't believe they asked their members if they agreed. So, we decided to. Of those on our list who also are members of the American Legion, only 17 percent backed the Legion's call for Shinseki to resign. Sixty-four percent said he should not resign, with 19 percent saying they weren't yet sure.

And of those who receive care at the VA, again, there was no overwhelming call for Shinseki to step down. Sixty-two percent said he should not resign. Twenty-four percent said they weren't sure, with the remainder, just 14 percent, saying he should. That's interesting, in that those who actually receive VA care are the least likely to say Shinseki should resign. Listening to the news, you would think that those who get VA care would be up in arms, with torches and pitchforks, calling for Shinseki's head. That just isn't the case.

Even some Democrats are becoming ankle biters...

USA Today
May 21, 2014

The president promised to hold those responsible accountable, which perhaps made his praise for VA Secretary Eric Shinseki, the man ultimately in charge, awkward. After Obama praised the former Army general for pouring his "heart and soul" into the VA, one of his fellow Democrats, Rep. John Barrow of Georgia, suggested it wasn't enough.

Fellow Georgia Democrat Rep. David Scott followed with a floor speech in which he called for Obama to fire Shinseki and expressed dismay that president was showing "no urgency."

"Unfortunately, this administration has fallen short in providing the kind of care that our veterans have earned," Barrow, a perennial vulnerable Democrat, said in a statement. "While I don't think a change in leadership will immediately solve the serious problems that plague the VA, I do think it's time to give someone else an opportunity to lead the agency and begin the rebuilding process to ensure these issues never happen again."

Maybe we should have elected one of these two Democrats instead.

Even more bad news on the horizon...

Washington Examiner
April 29, 2014

Disillusioned with President Obama and distrustful of Washington, the youngest of voters are leaving the Democrats and turning to the Republicans, another danger sign that the Senate might be ripe for the GOPís taking, according to a comprehensive new Harvard University poll.

The poll done by students with the John F. Kennedy School of Government's Institute of Politics also found that young Democrats are far less enthusiastic about voting in the midterm elections than Republicans and that only one in four younger voters even plan to vote in the fall.

"Climate with a tax." Will have to remember that one.
Thought what I posted the other day - if liberals can't control it, they tax it - was pretty clever...
...but yours is better.
Well Australia has a new PM who is a tea bagger in disguise and he has tried to drop the carbon tax there 2 times already and the people won't let him.

Something you might learn from that, he was elected by default because the non conservatives self destructed changing leaders every other month and so he was elected on a belief he might bring stable government. Only his ideas belong in the 1950's much like your own and everything he tries gets blocked in the upper house. How many countries in the world would people come out protesting on the streets to keep a tax, well they did there.

Sonic shouldn't read the liberal squawking points to learn history.
The 9/11 Commission Report is easy to find.
He might actually learn what really happened.
And no one could have possibly known the day, time or targets even if bin Laden had sent Bush a memo the attack was "imminent" personally.
Tough to reconcile that with the facts of the time.

So... have you found bushie boy's report on the wmd's in iraq?

"He didn't fire Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki. Firing Shinseki would suggest he was actually taking responsibility, rather than just talking about taking responsibility.

That same tea bagger PM in Australia closed down the climate council in the first week he was elected because he didn't believe in climate change. This was an organisation of experts established to advise government on what steps they should take in addressing it.

The day he closed down the organisation, millions of dollars in donations come in from the Australian public to keep it going and still exists today.
So like tea baggers everywhere, it's a species very much in danger of extinction.

People also protested in the streets for Prohibition, Jim Crow Laws and racial lynchings.

If some one else does it, it must be good, right? Europe taxes itself into bankruptcy and you jerks are all for it. Now...yer against austerity. Hee, Hee. You guys are freakin' juvenile crazies.

Why do you Progressives always follow anything that moves like a newborn chick does?

Fox News anchor arrested at Minnesota airport

ST. PAUL, Minn.(AP)-- Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett was arrested at a Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport bar on Wednesday for refusing to cooperate with airport police who were called to the scene, an airport official said.

Jarrett was taken into custody at around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal, Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan said. He said the officers reported that Jarrett seemed intoxicated, acted belligerent and refused to follow orders.

Jarrett, 59, was booked into Hennepin County Jail on a preliminary charge of obstructing the legal process by interfering with a peace officer. His bond was set at $300.

A court appearance hadn't been scheduled, and it wasn't clear late Wednesday whether he had been released.

A Fox News spokeswoman, Irena Briganti, didn't immediately respond to an after-hours email seeking comment about the arrest.
