    The service organizations are quite experienced at filing VA claims. Reach out to the DAV, PVA, or AmVets. The PVA usually does spinal cord injured vets but I know people who they have represented who weren't paralyzed. Their service officers are usually excellent.

    Not a new movie but I didn't see it posted here. I recently watched this movie and found it a bit disturbing (made me examine my heart/take stock and see some of my selfishness in decisions I make). It is interesting to see him struggle with his selfish desire to climb without safety equipment against the risk to his loved ones of dying in pursuit of his goal. A few times in the movie even the camera men had to look away in fear of watching him plunge to his death.
  3. I like how they want to move us further left while acknowledging that one, of a bunch of democrat run cities in ruins, is their target for "leftover funds". Gavel campaign spokesman: "....all leftover funds will be donated to get Flint clean water,”

    I was so pissed by the time that movie ended I wanted to dig Johnson and Mcnamara back up and kick their ass just for good measure. As many of them pointed out, that was a complete shit-show from the beginning. Respect for the men who fought with their hands tied behind their backs! I became an AF pilot because of those men who fought in Viet Nam. In 1973 as a 10 year old I got to sit in an F-4 (18th TFW deployed) at CCK Air Base in Taiwan and speak with one of the pilots and it was game on from there.
  5. "I'm going to ask you for the fifth time to stop calling me a man, because quite clearly I am not." Well actually it's not clear at all dude.
  6. Actually he is (not even close to a conservative - but maybe partially a modern day repub). We're screwed from everywhere. As mentioned if Congress had the stones to do their job and if the Prez had the stones to veto a bill he didn't want, we'd all be better off. At least then the government would be doing its job as far as process anyway.
  7. Holy S&*t I'd throat punch my mom if she gave me that name and at the first moment possible go to court to legally change it to a real name. What a tool.
  8. You're a medical doctor and also an enlisted Army Reserve dude? That seems like a weird/unusual position. And, yes it seems this is perfect timing for you to go for your wings.
  9. And Willie was a gold mine for local talent, but the above still happened at times.
  10. Lord Ratner, any issues with getting it set up. I'm on Total Wireless now and have read about tons of issues with Total Wireless SIM compatibility with the Pixel devices

    And, when did Admiral James Greer become a standard civilian and convert to islam?
  12. 2, and I would say that in spite of that trend we are better off now. Most scholars agree that FDR's policies (well intentioned as they might have been) prolonged the depression.
  13. Yes, many of the things you list are definitely towards the socialist end of the spectrum and I agree that not all of them are bad (the highway system for example has been beneficial to the whole country and every citizen supports its existence through fuel taxes (consumption tax not a tax on labour). Others on the list would probably be better served with private entities being paid directly by the citizens for services rendered (some utilities are even private companies here in TN). Schools should definitely be taken over by private organizations and controlled at the local level rather than federal or even state. There's a reason your average Catholic/Private school kicks even the best public school's ass in every measured category (immediate accountability to parents). Since the 1910's and definitely after FDR (1930's on) the country has trended significantly away from the idea of free markets with oversight by government to the idea that government (legislators) should control and tax to support most aspects of our lives (while at the same time legislators are passing the buck of actually legislating). Legislators write laws like the ACA, Federal Tax Law, etc that have no real substance and then rely on federal and/or state employees in the appropriate agency to write the regulations and policies we all have to abide by. I know the legislature has to delegate some tasks (procedures maybe?) for actual implementation, but not the whole ball of wax like they currently tend to do. But, I'm as far right politically as JFK so am considered a right winger today.
  14. Part of the definition of socialism pertaining to implementation - "policy or practice based on the political and economic theory of socialism." So yes, government taking/confiscating money from citizens (taxing their labour) and using it to pay for education, health-care, (insert pet program here) is absolutely in line with socialism. (Tax policy is a different discussion but does come into play) The government or community at large might not actually "own" the education system or healthcare system but by taking our money and buying it they are absolutely "owning" it, as the definition goes on to read " owned or regulated by the community or government as a whole". We are so far down the path towards complete socialism it frightening. The policies and practice of socialism isn't an ON or OFF switch, its gradients and we all know it.
  15. Wow, talk about overreacting. If he called a bone smuggler a "faggot" that might have been a little bit inappropriate, but some things are faggoty and need to be called out.
