Veterans Corner by Terry Richards | August 31, 2012 Why Veterans, all other Americans should Vote for President Obama? i
Rate This

by Terry Richards
Veterans Rights Advocate Terry Richards urges Veterans and all other Americans to Re-Elect President Obama and Vice-President Biden for the Greater Good of Our Country…
Simply put, here are just some of the reasons why this Author and Nationally Recognized Veterans Rights Advocate will Vote for President Obama and why all Veterans and other Americans should too?
1. President Obama is a decent and dedicated husband and father and has never had any allegations of moral turpitude made against him because there are none.

2. President Obama said he would help Veterans with more VA funding for Healthcare and Benefits by getting Congress to appropriate these funds, and he did so.
3. President Obama said he would especially help Homeless Veterans, and he did so by getting Congress to fund VA with over 17,000 Veterans Affair Supportive Housing (VASH) Vouchers for Veterans who are Homeless or at risk of becoming homeless since he has been in office – with a goal of NO HOMELESS VETERANS BY 2015.
Set forth below is my letter of endorsement I read for the Veterans For Obama News Conference held on Thursday, September 13, 2012 which further discusses the reasons I endorse President Obama.

Nationally recognized Veterans Rights Advocate Terry Richards (Center), State Senator of the 28th District of California Ted W. Lieu (Left), and Richard Weir,Veteran Field Organizer for the Truman Project (Right) endorse President Obama for re-election at News Confernce at the new Westside Democratic Headquarters in Santa Monica.

it is called COMPENSATION not a pension or any thing else but we are compensated for our service as we should be .
when I walk into the VA and give them my card, I get an IMMEDIATE,
"thank you for your service and sacrifice" and I am certain that you also receive this type of treatment and courtesy.
SO WHO CARES WHAT SOME FRAUD LIKE HE THIKS ABOUT PEOPLE THAT SERVED THEIR COUNTRY IN TIME OF WAR

Overall, the VA has operated well in the past for me. And it is doing so at the present...However, there is a trend of cutting back going on....

The people in the VA, at least most of them are courteous. Those who are not are generally weeded out. But we have a shortage of doctors in the system here....

Greetings Father Robert Dye
Peace
I am glad you clarified that up a bit. I thought I was making it a bit to simple....
I think Catholics have been "centered" on the Teachings of Jesus, while Paul was more an active evangelist, and the Protestants center more on his example and theology....
Of course that is not to say Protestants are not Jesus oriented, rather that the action, the Great Commission(as at the end of Mass) is what is taken more to task....
Its ironic, that Protestants complain that Catholics are "works" oriented, and yet take the work of evangelizing to heart....
evening Robert, we don't complain that your works oriented as you say we are too, the difference is those works don't save anyone according to the Gospel. Your faith plus works gospel is wrong.

Do you get the difference?

CONTINUED;
This points to an alarming trend within the Republican Party in which veterans are treated more as drivers of government spending rather than national treasures worthy of investment. When the debate over the Post 9/11 GI Bill picked up in 2008, President Bush and Senator John McCain opposed the legislation. While they eventually came around, one cannot say the same for today’s Republican leaders. Just last month, forty Senate Republicans united to reject the Veterans Job Corps bill, which aimed to put returning veterans to work preserving and restoring national parks.
As former President Clinton put it during his speech at the Democratic National Convention, Democrats believe “We’re all in this together” is a better philosophy than “You’re on your own.” Sadly, Mitt Romney and today’s Republican Party have chosen to take the “You’re on your own” approach one step further by applying it to veterans and military families. It’s an approach that General Eisenhower – later President Eisenhower, a Republican no less – would never have countenanced. Neither should we.
Justin Ford is the Veterans Director at The Truman National Security Project and the President of VetPAC.
preston

Probably, the issue comes down to military service. Those who have served are more likely to vote for VA issues....

Social services are the first to get cut in budgets. Generally, education is first to get cut, then healthcare.

Here is the delemma, the U.S. is moving in the direction of a secular state. Therefore, it is moving away from its moral obligations. And we must recognize which is more important: The preservation of life, or continuing on our secular course toward death.

there has been a shortage of doctors as long as I can remember in our area since it is very improvished. I remember when many of the local doctors begged me to be a doctor and they would pay for all of my expenses.

but getting back to the VA, ours are using many PAs to do the work of doctors and asking retired doctors in the area to donate their time to help with the overload of recent veterans returning from war.

Your point is clear.

But I don't think 'my world' is exposed to what you would like to call "purgatory", although it has been pondered upon, that this world - our life - is like a Purgatory of sorts.

In religion - and Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purgatory

"Purgatory is the condition of purification or temporary punishment by which those who die in a state of grace are believed to be made ready for Heaven."

I guess it is a place we all we take part in, as "grace" is subjective and not confirmed to be residing in anyone, except through their own opinion.

I'll see ya in line!

I posted all of those links to show mr fraud that he never gets anything RIGHT.

when all is said and done, I dont care who votes for who or if you even vote.

as for me, I gave my life to the Lord on 8/25/82, that experience turned me away from politics since I had lived with them all of my life.

my dad and brother was mayor of our home town for decades(between the two). my cousin was mayor of a neighboring town on the same day that my brother was elected, my dad was a judge for several years and my brother was not only Mayor but also served two terms as county commissioner before he retired from public service,which was after he had retired from a large Corp as a VP.

SO I DONT CARE.LOL

Wow....

We still have enough doctors. PAs are not used yet....But our surgical and emergency services were cut back and centralized so we would have to drive(or be driven) to a VA hospital 4 hours farther away....(It already takes 1 hour 45 minutes to drive to "main" hospital).

Good evening:
Personally, as a non-Catholic, I don't find the book of James difficult at all.

Knowing we are saved by grace through faith, we will perform such good works as God has pre-ordained that we will do as a result of knowing our salvation is assured.

Y'know, I really am getting a bit fed up with the numbers being thrown around.
.
I don't see ANY way those can be accurate.
.
True, many Protestany communities are not "connected" to one another the way Catholic parieshes are, or Lutheran, or Episcopal.
.
But I don't believe there is ANY way you can number this many different theologies or bodies.
.
It's ridiculous.
.
Yes, if you count "Buford Highway Baptist" in Norcross, Georgia as a distinct "Protestant body," and you count all similar faith communities that way, you can probably hit that high a number, but THAT'S CHEATING.
.
In terms of theology, Buford Highway Baptiast and First Baptist of Muskogee, Oklahoma are so similar that it makes no real sense to number them this way.
.
It's like arguing that the Catholic Church has 50,000 different rites withing the United States, because no priest celebrates the mass EXACTLY the same as any other priest.(It's pretty close, and probably only another priest would notice the slight variations, but they are there.) It would be a fool's argument to contend that.
.
Numbering EVERY independant Prot community as a separate denomination only serves to inflate the numbers, and make Prots look more divided than they really are.
.
I don't know the real numbers, and don't much care.(The fact that Christians are divided into just TWO arguing factions would be scandal enough.) I imagine the real number of Prot denominations probably falls between 50 and 200, and even those numbers may be way high.
.
But the 30,000 plus I keep seeing thrown around? Ridiculous.
.
If you INSIST on making much of te scandal of divisions, get accurate numbers.
.
The principle Clay has made a plea for ("At least hate us for what we ACTUALLY believe,and not some fiction!") applies here as well.
.
If you are going to criticize Protestants over divisions in denominations/theologies, do it on the REAL number of groups.
.
Not some trumped-up, exagerated number designed to make them look worse.
.
Go with truth, or keep quiet.
.

I agree.

I have been trying to say that for a long time.

Associations and conventions should not be counted as denominations.

But,for some reason,they are.

TAKE NOTE MR AND MRS FRAUD.
Beware of Speaking Evil About Our Leaders..
July 15, 2012
tags: Christian, Christianity, God, Jesus, Religion and Spirituality, Word of God.The evil one has set his traps and many well meaning and loving children of God are falling into them..
As the end times come closer there seems to be more and more speaking ill and spreading lies about the leaders of their countries..Even to the point of judging their hearts..
Yet Scripture clear states that God places all leaders into their places so that His Will will be done and we are warned in several places not to speak evil of dignitaries but to pray for them…
With this means of communication the evil one has set the traps for God’s people to stumble and fall into, for he plays with our emotions and our sense of entitlement to have our flesh bite us with the need to speak out against our leaders..
Yet several spots in scripture tells us not only to watch out for those who speak against dignitaries but warns us not to be like the world who are not afraid to speak evil about the leaders for they are the very ones that reject authority and try to persuade God’s children to speak against dignitaries instead of praying for them..
So the next time something happens within your country do not take to the Internet and post or repost against the leaders but let us fall to our knees before God and pray for them.. For this is the will of God as proclaimed throughout the Word of God, to walk in His love and grace, to speak evil of no one, and not to be complainers and grumblers as the world is for then we will fall to the ways/lust of the flesh…
Preston says.....As the end times come closer.

Where do you get that information from?

You are like most posters. You shape your personal life on what scriptures say.

I say start making personal decisions yourself. If you think about sex a lot, you are normal.

QUIT WORRYING!

sorry Robert, but I disagree,

it is not a tough one for a non catholic.

in fact, just the opposite,since our works come easily as we believe that Jesus died for us and we love Him so much that we will do anything and everything because of that Love.

and what are you referring to when you speak of the "Great Commission" when the Holy Spirit came to the disciples and Mary(this is not in agreement with what your church teaches as it beleivs that the Holy Spirit was with her when she was conceived)

tho I do agree with you, she was jsut like all of those others who received the holy Ghost, but I disagree with you that the disciples received teh Holy Ghost at that time since they ahd already receivied him when Jesus Breathed on them per Scripture

Your quote "apostolic succession is not biblical."
Oh yes it is... Acts 1: 20-26 Matthias chosen to Replace Judas” This is Apostolic succession.
20 “For,” said Peter,“it is written in the Book of Acts:
“‘May another take his place of leadership.’[d]
21 Therefore it is necessary to choose one of the men who have been with us the whole
time the Lord Jesus was living among us, 22 beginning from John’s baptism to the time
when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his
resurrection.”
23 So they nominated two men: Joseph called
Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias. 24
Then they prayed,“Lord, you know everyone’s
heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen
25 to take over this apostolic ministry, which
Judas left to go where he belongs.” 26 Then they
cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was
added to the eleven apostles.
I love how you take little bits and pieces of a verse to prove your point!

Why do you 'christians' refuse to talk about your total lack of faith or what your god really said?

He demands that you murder your daughters, if they lose their virginity before marriage!

He is not asking you! It is not a request! It is his law.

Nowhere did jesus say that god changed his mind on that issue.

You are a bunch of lying cowards.

this must be happening all over in smaller areas. we have Urgent care instead of Emergency and little to no surgery.

we only have to drive around 80 miles to go to a bigger hospital for more services if necessary.minor surgery is still done if only local anes. is used
