What The Fuck Has Obama Done So Far? - November 18, 2010, 09:45 AM

What the fuck has Obama done so far?

Just a few,

-Created more private sector jobs in 2010 than during entire Bush years

-Provided travel expenses to families of fallen soldiers to be on hand when the body arrives at Dover AFB

-Reversed the policy of barring media coverage during the return of fallen soldiers to Dover Air Force Base

-Provided the Department of Veterans Affairs with more than $1.4 billion to improve services to America's Veterans

seems pretty opposite to that thread about "taking away pay from soldiers...." huh.

It really tickles me when people claim that Obama and his admin are the worst. What? How do you arrive at that conclusion. Probably not the best...I'm sure not the worst. that being said I've only be alive since Regan....and I was a baby when he was in his last days...


What do you value more? Life or Image?

I question the veracity of 1.

2 is true

3 is not a good thing. There should not be media coverage of that.

4... well... yes, but with no oversight for the money and a shithead for a VA leader, the department hasn't gotten any better

Bait post is bait.

4 pages minimum. Will end in someone's feeling getting hurt and a diatribe on slavery at some point.

(1) He saved more than he created. Net, net - not really a bad thing because you cannot conjure up a plethora of new privatize jobs in a recession even with government projects because so much of our manufacturing base is now offshored.

(3) Disagree. The government should not be allowed to white wash and censor war. This is a painful reminder that there is no spawn point.

(4) I couldn't disagree more vehemently. My father is currently under partial VA care as he awaits a suitable match for a kidney (double failure) transplant. They flew me and him up to their main transplant center in Pittsburg earlier this year, put us up in a hotel, paid for our cab fair from the airport and back, and gave us meal stipends.
He receives regular check-up appointments from Reed and the VA center in DC in addition to a plethora of meds at no cost.

On top of this the VA is taking the reigns as his primary provider. He gets eye exams, heart check-up, colonoscopy, prostate exam, and blood work all at no cost.

Is the VA is a perfect system, no - we have our challenges at times, but then what healthcare system is unless you happen to have a Cadillac HMO/PPO policy.

Personally, I couldn't be more pleased and grateful for the VA. Without the VA system, I would be making the hard choice of either watching my father die or driving myself into liquidation and probably personal bankruptcy trying to help keep him alive.

Whats a guy suppose to do when he inherts 2 wars, a failing economy, and a record deficit.....not to mention the fact that the entire republican party is working, with no compromise, to make him fail. I dont agree with everything he is doing.....but my god, the country is going to hell in a hand basket because we cant get our government to work. I say fire them all, get some young blood in there, limit terms, and get the large corporations out of their pockets...then we might get some where

I have received shit so far. Why does our military complex and the welfare complex need to get all the benefits.
