Every year, millions of abused and abandoned animals are gassed to death, or chemically killed.  As usual, instead of going after the CAUSE of these claimed overpopulated animals, we instead kill off large numbers of them.  We react instead of being pro-active.

While it is true that pet owners need to have their pets spayed and nuetered, this process is so cost prohibitive in many cases that owners simply cannot afford to have it done.

The average  cost of spaying and nuetering across the country is 85.00 to 150 dollars.  The cost of euthanizing these same animals is as much or more.  Wouldn’t it make better economic sense to offer low cost spay and nueter, and avoid the costly euthanizing?

Every year organizations claiming to exist to protect animals from abuse, neglect and possbile euthansia, collect millions upon millions of dollars in donations.  Instead of funding kill shelters, would we not be better served to fund free or reduced cost spay and nueter clinics? This would reduce unwanted populations of animals that eventually are held in shelters waiting to die. I know the animals would appreciate it.

Join us as we discuss our unsavory acceptance gas chambers and other methods of killing off unwanted animals.

In psychology our belief system shapes our perceptions of the world around us, in fact becoming our very sense of reality. Our primary caregivers, most often our parents, project their view of us and their world onto us and we in turn internalize their views as our own sense of developing self and world view. In this last century the influence of mass media has also come to increasingly shape our world and self-concept. As adolescents and young adults we often change and modify our perceptions of the world based on our own interpersonal experience particularly with peers and movement to finding resonance with a more authentic, individuated self in relation to our surrounding world. But with time and more adult experience often comes an existential dilemma and/or crisis if and when we encounter growing dissonance between what we thought we…

Obama’s Doctrine of Destruction of America as we know it, and the March to a New World Order

This is a good synopsis of where we are heading and how we are getting there.

TRUTHER

We could not have a better person in office than President Obama, if you want someone to do everything he can to destroy the country that is. This President has gone out of his way to make sure not only just a few of his Socialist policies ruin us, but that his whole time in office is dedicated to the destruction of the United States as we know it.

From supplying terrorist organizations such as Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and countless other Islamic Jihadists in N. Africa, the Mid-East, Indonesia, and Europe with billions of dollars in weapons, billions in financial aid, and actual military help, to purposely busing and flying in hundreds of thousand illegal aliens per day via Homeland Security.

This President expects his agenda of anti-Americanism to continue with breaking our economy and with the EPA’s anti CO2 regulations, which are based on…

We Don’t Support the Troops…..We Support War and Corruption

According to the NY Times, all 470 senior executives at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) were rated as “fully successful” or better over the past 4 years and 80% of them received bonuses on top of their six-figure incomes in 2013. Yes, they are fully successful at Poor Management which caused the deaths of as many as 1000 veterans who did not receive proper medical care. The schedulers at the VA were “successfully” directed to keep secret waiting lists to delay medical care for sick and injured vets so that management could meet quotas which qualified them for bonuses.
___________________________________________________________

The VA paid out $2.7 million in taxpayer funds for senior executive bonuses last year. This was True Success…for VA Senior Executives. Bravo.

Gina Farrisee, the Assistant Secretary for Human Resources at the VA argued that the bonus awards were necessary to compete in tough labor markets for skilled personnel.

I find her defense of executive bonuses hard to believe as it is an employers’ market with a plethora of talented people looking for work. The Weekly Standard reports that the average federal employee made $126,141 in pay and benefits in 2012, more than double the private sector average. More “success” for Federal Employees..at the expense of the Taxpayer.

Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) says that the VA doctors have an easy job compared to their private sector counterparts. He says that the VA doctors see about 1200 patients per year, compared to private sector doctors who attend to 2300 patents per year. In Phoenix, private sector doctors do almost twice as much work while earning about half of what the VA doctors make, which is in excess of $300,000. Salary “success” for Federal Doctors.

This list names the employees of the scandal-plagued Phoenix VA facility and reveals their salaries, in a first step toward transparency:

As a result of the failed wars in the Middle East, VA expenditures have doubled over the past 12 years. The VA spent $61 billion in 2001, compared to funding in 2012 that rose to a whopping $125 billion. “Success” for the taxpayers who are bankrolling the corrupt system.

Meanwhile, the Senate is proposing throwing money at the VA problem that could cost taxpayers an extra $50 billion per year, instead of rooting out the corruption and fixing the system.

Tom Coburn says money is not the solution as the VA is expected to have $5.9 billion in unspent funds at the end of the year. He recommends that Congress provide better oversight of the VA, transparency, accountability and the firing of bad employees.

Senator Coburn’s assessment is right on target, but doesn’t go far enough. Any VA employe who committed a serious crime, especially management, should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Some “success” should be punished, and renamed criminal fraud and waste.

The objective of Congress should be to focus on reducing VA costs by eliminating war.

The beneficiaries of war are the elites who control the Military Industrial Complex. The elites and bureaucracies like the VA are enjoying the “success” of the wars in the Middle East that are profitable only to them.

The wars have brought only death, destruction and complete misery to American soldiers and to the countries that were “liberated”. American vets are committing suicide at a rate of 22 per day! US military operations are bankrupting America. Hundreds of thousands of innocents in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya have been killed as a result of US intervention. This is the real cost of war.

Beyond the Waiting Lists, New Senate Report Reveals a Culture of Crime, Cover-Up and Coercion within the VA

TOM COBURN, US SENATOR FROM OKLAHOMA 

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – U.S. Senator and doctor Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK), today released his new oversight report “Friendly Fire: Death, Delay, and Dismay at the VA.”  The report is based on a year-long investigation of VA hospitals around the nation that chronicled the inappropriate conduct and incompetence within the VA that led to well-documented deaths and delays.  The report also exposes the inept congressional and agency oversight that allowed rampant misconduct to grow unchecked.

“This report shows the problems at the VA are worse than anyone imagined.  The scope of the VA’s incompetence – and Congress’ indifferent oversight – is breathtaking and disturbing.  This investigation found the problems at the VA are far deeper than just scheduling.  Over the past decade, more than 1,000 veterans may have died as a result of the VA’s misconduct and the VA has paid out nearly $1 billion to veterans and their families for its medical malpractice.  As is typical with any bureaucracy, the excuse for not being able to meet goals is a lack of resources.  But this is not the case at the VA where spending has increased rapidly in recent years,” Dr. Coburn said.

“The Administration and Congress have failed to ensure our nation is living up to the promises we have made to our veterans,” Dr. Coburn added.  “As a physician who has personally cared for hundreds of Oklahoma veterans, this is intolerable.  As a senator, I’m determined to address the structural challenges of the Department of Veterans Affairs so we can end this national disgrace and improve quality and access to health care for our veterans.  But make no mistake.  Whatever bill Congress passes cannot ignore the findings of this report.  While it is good that Congress feels a sense of urgency we are at this point because Congress has ignored or glossed over too many similar warnings in the past.  Our sense of urgency should come from the scope of the problem, not our proximity to an election.”

Key findings in the report include: More
