A considerable majority of Americans believes that Veteran's Administration hospitals and other military health facilities are not giving wounded Iraq war veterans the quality of care they deserve.Hum....
The latest poll from the Harvard Opinion Research Program at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the Harris Interactive® polling organization finds that 62 percent of Americans believe medical care for returning wounded U.S. soldiers from Iraq isn't adequate. In the same poll, 65 percent said that mental health care for returning vets was substandard, according to a HSPH news release.

So why didn't these welfare statist buy decent medical coverage plans? rather than expect that the Welfare State was going to provide a Nanny to take care of all of their little itty bitty job related issues.
Also, why is it that some 60 plus percent of americans feel that some how the Government should be the people providing these Extra Rights And Privileges and thus unbalance the market place with Brutal And Jack Booted Governmental intrusions into the free market?
Maybe it is time to have a national discussion about why we do not hear any complaints from the Valiant War Heroes of The Black Water Army, or the Karl Rove Armoured Flying Saucer Korp, but we are constantly hearing the whinings and snivelings from these so called veterans....
For our slow readers, would this be a bad time to park your Ass in the Way Back Machine to the starting days of PTSD, when the DSM-IV was just getting their grip on the reality that what ever one calls it combat fatigue has unpleasant side effects. But of course, to visit this part of the debate would mean raising socially impolite questions of The RINO who are all now hoping that by playing their Pro-Vet Card that no one will hold them accountable for the fiasco of their Pro-War Posturing.... Not to mention the Marvels of their Prior Positions on Combat Related Trauma as it has, AGAIN!!!! come back to Bite Them In The ASS!!!
