Old (2012) But Incredible Reading

Rate this question




The above url is a link to June 19, 2012 Hearing before the Committee on Veterans Affairs.

In particular the coments made by the Hon Bob Filner, California, ranking. Are very critical and downright nasty.

This is 100 plus pages of banter that explains what a mess VA is and how futile it shall be.

Enjoy, SL

Great! No sooner than I posted the above link The Hon Bob Filner / Mayor of San Diego gets over a dozen sexual harrasment charges filed against him.

Mr Filner is now the Mayor of San Francisco? I think or maybe he recently resigned.

We interviewed him many times at SVR when he was Chairman of the H VAC. I dont recall which radio station we went through...maybe some of his interviews are in the SVR forum here . And his H VAC hearings might still be on line.....

I recall him telling VA (VBA) that Congress would get them all the money they needed to do their job right....

(I think it was when the former VA Sec was pissing and moaning over Shreddergate at a HVAC hearing trying to blame it on lack of funding which wasn't the problem at all)

Now they get bonuses whether they do their job right or not. :wacko:

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

It is a very slow climb to the top of the cliff.

His recent actions are a Joke. So if you fall off that cliff, it only takes a second to hit rock bottom, The place where he is now.

A Veteran is a person who served this country. Treat them with respect.

A Disabled Veteran is a person who served this country and bears the scars of that service regardless of when or where they served.

Treat them with the upmost respect. I do. Rejection is not a sign of failure. Failure is not an option, Medical opinions and evidence wins claims. Trust in others is a virtue but you take the T out of Trust and you are left with Rust so be wise about who you are dealing with.
