Shinseki’s falling on the sword was pure “symbolism” …a transparent attempt to distance Obama from the real crisis at the V.A….but a good place to start… 

  The problem is rooted in unionized government employees at mid-management levels.. those who draw large salaries and bonuses …. those who rely on union assurance that their jobs are secure regardless of inadequate performance.

  That problematic circumstance coupled with throngs of government bureaucrats , leads to hopelessly inadequate healthcare that plagues our veterans today…  (a preview of your own future healthcare under Obamacare.)

  If you want the true story of what went wrong at Veteran Hospitals , talk to the folks who’ve been mopping their floors for twenty years.. They know the tyrants… the ego inspired slackers who allow the atrocities to continue..They know the conscientious workers , and the unionized dead-wood..

We  News Network viewers are being bombarded with snippets of character assassination directed towards Gwyneth Paltrow’s comparison of her life to that of a combat soldier….. comparing rude inflammatory comments on Twitter to the destructive assaults by enemy combatants.

   I could not pick Gwyneth Paltrow from a mug-shot line up or a tabloid cover…..in fact, I had to Google her name for the correct spelling , but I doubt seriously that her statement was a literal comparison.

  How many of us have made the statement that married life is like living in a war zone.. ?  That’s called an allegory…not presented in a literal sense..

 She may be guilty of being blonde , or perhaps using a poor choice of words , but I doubt that she believes bad tweets are comparable to road-side bombs or incoming rounds…

 Why is her statement anymore inflammatory than Hillary’s spontaneous remark…” What difference does it make anyway ?”

  For me , Paltrow gets a pass.. she’s never experienced combat … or  seldom slept in anything less than a five-star suite…what would she know about war anyway ?

  Let’s get to the true crises at hand… issues like Obamacare , unemployment , immigration reform , or the true scandal at the V.A.

Tommy Tomato …

 May 30th 2014 ….marks the day of the WINNING entry in the 4th Annual First Fruit Contest….with the first ripe tomato in Montague County.

   This year’s winner was a “sleeper ” , a dark-horse , a man of the cloth…a NON-Fenoglio.

 Nocona’s own Tommy Lamascus has fenoglioed the Fenoglios… He’s the winner of an all-expenses paid trip to Caps Corner, where he’ll spend three luxurious nights in Mrs. Durham’s Country Store…

Asylum under siege..

 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Transgender people receiving Medicare may no longer be automatically denied coverage for sex reassignment surgeries, a U.S. Department of Health and Services review board ruled Friday in a groundbreaking decision that recognizes the procedures as a medically necessary and effective treatment for individuals who do not identify with their biological sex.

 

Ruling in favor of a 74-year-old Army veteran whose request to have Medicare pay for her genital reconstruction was denied two years ago, the agency’s Departmental Appeals Board ruled that a three-decade-old HHS rule excluding such surgeries from the procedures covered by the national health program for the elderly and disabled was unjustified.

“Sometimes I am asked aren’t I too old to have surgery. My answer is how old is too old?”

  What could I possibly add to that…dumbfounded…disgusted .

Montel’s Manifesto

 Allow me to preface the following change in direction by saying I have never been a fan of Montel Williams…but all that changed in a ten-minute time frame..

   Little did I know that he is a twenty-year veteran of the military…and less I knew of his deep-rooted patriotism concerning the V.A. scandal that has surfaced at (some) facilities in recent weeks..

  He’s arm flailing mad….that our veterans have been slighted by the very nation that they so gallantly served.. He’s freakin furious…

  Montel’s demonstrative….infuriated…animated…outraged…he’s reading the riot act to any government agent that makes the ill-fated mistake of entering his vocally dominated space..

 Veins are standing out on his glistening shaved-head…in defense of all who stepped forward to answer the call… Montel’s a mediator for everyone military, from E-1’s to Full Bird Colonels… He’s going to bat for American veterans…

  Guess I never saw that man on the “talk shows”..he’s no stuffed shirt.

Cobbler Caper……

     As a belated anniversary present for my aging bride , I accompanied her to the Doctor this morning for a steroid injection in her hip..

  While sitting in the waiting room , watching the large hand make a couple of laps around the dial , it occurred to me that a primary suspect in the peach theft case lives just beyond the hospital property… I’ll do some investigative leg-work… Columbo without the coat..

 Adding to my unfounded suspicions is the fact he has a plank privacy fence around the back yard… as though he has something to hide…The cedar planks lining the alleyway are unusually tight… and a minimum of six feet tall..

  I strolled along the length of his back fence …squinting and straining for visual access thru a gap in the boards…when suddenly as I stepped forward , a change in elevation allowed me to peer over the top…

   Surveying side to side , I saw no visual indication to further raise my suspicions of his guilt…perhaps he’s innocent of all charges… I instinctively glanced down at my feet before stepping off whatever had allowed me to peer over the fence…

 Much to my amazement I was standing atop a humongous pile of discarded peach pits and peelin’s……. Case closed…

  Apparently the world is filled with guys suffering from sexual confusion…torn between the ideas conceived in their own minds as to which gender they find more attractive or stimulating than the other…

    I’m here to help…. When was the last time you saw a lady in stiletto heels hock a big loogie on the sidewalk or pick her nose in public … guys do it all the time…

  How often do you notice a lady belching like a tug-boat at the dinner table ?… it’s primarily a guy thing..

 When was the last time you saw a girl kick a stray dog ?…or throw her drawers in the laundry room floor ?…how often do they go for days without brushing their hair or their teeth ?…..or sit for hours in their skiveys watching ESPN ?

  If McDonalds menu and cheap beer comes to mind as a fantasy date , you may be leaning towards hairy legs and Copenhagen between the sheets..

  If you’re a guy , and you find any or all of the afore-mentioned attributes sexually appealing , it’s time to exit the closet !  Something ain’t quite right !
