Screwing the Troops
What Else is New?
April 4, 2013
For a country always at war, the United States is remarkably not interested in taking care of soldiers it has broken in its wars. Having bankrupted the country, Washington sinks every available penny into the two purposes of the military: funneling money into the arms industry, and fueling imperial ambitions, in large part of pasty fern-bar Napoleons at National Review and Commentary.
The Veterans Administration is way back in the chow line. It doesn’t work very well. As best I can tell, nobody cares.
It costs roughly a thousand dollars retail. For a blinded vet, most likely of slight education and no resources beyond his VA compensation, this is a lot of money.
A small group of veterans picketed outside the Canandaigua VA Hospital Wednesday afternoon. They were protesting the closing of VA hospitals across the country. They say those that aren’t closing are being sold off or leased to outside interests, depriving veterans the treatment they have earned.
Displaying the American flag upside down, however, is considered by some to be disrespectful.
“We’re not disgracing the flag but telling the public be on the alert,” said Gene Simes, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. “This is a distress call.”
…..Meanwhile, the Tea Party remains completely divided, un-funded, without direction, largely unaware of the pure massive evil it faces and in a word, impotent. The kinder-gentler nature of the Tea Party movement is in way over its head in the battle with the massive evil empire of international socialists they face and the sooner they recognize this reality, the sooner they can self-correct and become a viable resistance.
Where are the huge corporate sponsors behind the so-called patriot movement, the only resistance standing between American freedom and a socialist abyss? Where is the huge international support from people all over the world that recognize the reality that if America is no longer free, freedom will exist nowhere on earth?
And why have so-called patriots allowed themselves to be divided between more than twenty-thousand competing groups, leaving all of them completely impotent against a very well organized and funded enemy of their country?
Do patriots really believe that this election or any other will turn this country around and head it back towards individual rights over collective rights, freedom over the false promise of free-stuff for all? Do patriots really even understand the battle they are in for the future of freedom, or the evil nature of their enemies?
Dr. Josef Mengele was known as “der Weiss angel,” or the white angel, at the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland during World War II. His white lab coat caught the fleeting attention of dying “patients” there, as he prepared and executed his grotesque genetic experiments on them. One wonders what historians of the future will call the doctors at the Veterans Administration who are poised to perform their own genetic experiments on a captive population.
The VA recently launched a massive medical data collection effort called the “Million Veteran Program,” run by Doctors Timothy O’Leary and Joel Kuppersmith at the Veterans Health Administration, Office of Research and Development.
The good doctors are gathering genetic information from one million former U.S. service vets — soldiers, sailors, and airmen. They are pressuring the veterans who use the VHA health services – at about 500 hospitals across the U.S.. – to give blood samples. During every routine visit, and also by phone and mail. The blood samples, once obtained, are then placed in cryogenic storage in a huge bio-repository on the East Coast. These blood samples contain the soldiers’ own DNA – the code of their genetic makeup.
To what end?
That’s the million dollar question about the million veteran program program, isn’t it?
Why would the U.S. government want a gigantic database of genetic information about a million American service veterans?
