Another example of the Obama administration and the EPA not caring about our constitution. Even when the courts rule against them they don't care and go on doing what ever they want. 
The Environmental Protection Agency says it is going forward with a new federal rule to protect small streams, tributaries and wetlands, despite a court ruling that blocked the measure in 13 central and Western states.

+Allen Massi kin Yaa'àanii You are guilty of discrimination against the remainder of the federal government by only describing the EPA as a bunch of lying crooks!

TSA is another example of how our federal government is incapable of doing anything right. With a 7 billion dollar budget during recent tests the TSA failed to find and stop weapons or simulated explosives 95% of the time. The head of Homeland Security stated that numbers like these never look good when taken out of contents. He is just another example nit wit presidential appointees. How the hell would a 95% failure rate look better in any context. How much do you want to bet they will be asking for more money. 
A DHS investigation found security breaches that allowed undercover investigators to smuggle weapons through checkpoints at dozens of U.S. airports.

Well Dah. Any moron knows this with new reports of incompetence and corruption coming out almost daily. And what a waste giving the VA another 16 billion dollars. All it is being used for is adding additional layers of red tape and hiring more union civil service employees and we already can see the wonderful job these union civil service employees are doing.

"Regardless of what the House's position may be, we have an obligation to deal with the Patriot Act," the Kentucky Republican said. "And we're going to deal with it this week. And it's my view that letting it expire is not a responsible thing to do."
McConnell needs to let the stinking Patriot Act die. The only things the patriot act have done is to allow government to spy on Americans, allowed the government to grow bigger, and given the president his own private army to do with what he pleases without consent of Congress.
McConnell needs to change his party affiliation to democrat or resign. What in the hell were Republicans in Kentucky thinking when they reelected this dumbass.

Why the hell is the US defending its self to the UN. The UN is nothing but an anti american organization that we are stupid enough to pay for. The UN needs to go to places like the middle east, Africa, and Asia and deal with those countries with governments that don't believe in human rights. Oh damn I forget those are the countries at the UN running the show and attacking the US.

As a minority I'm damn tired of People blaming everyone but the criminals for their crimes. Treating us like we are to stupid to get a job, not commit crimes and need others to takes care of us, is the most racist crap I hear of. BS, and the UN can kiss my ass.

So much for the VA policing itself and canning people responsible. Is there any wonder why new cases of fraud, abuse, and negligence come out on almost a daily basis. It is time for the federal civil service system to be totally dismantled. All services should be being provided by the public sector with the government providing oversight. Union government employees can't and won't police themselves with veterans and the american public paying the price.
I rant continuously about the federal union government employees but I have never once had anyone defend them. If you union government employees truly believe you are performing a service for Veterans and the american people then defend yourself because as far as I am concerned your silence confirms my belief that the federal civil service system has become a form of welfare and the employees are a bunch of incompetent, lazy, frauds that are stealing from the american people every time your paycheck goes into the bank.

South Dakota has not forgotten. They fly the POW-MIA flag above their own.

When Karen and I visited South Dakota last fall, I was wondering why the UN flag was flying all over the place until I finally figured out that it was their state flag!

When all of this came out I said the only thing that would happen was that the VA would ask for more money so that they could hire more union government employees. Well guess what 
House Speaker John Boehner tore into Veterans Affairs leadership Wednesday, alleging that nearly a year after then-Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned amid the scandal over veterans care, his successors have done little to fix the agency -- or even discipline those involved in the wait-times crisis.

Another case if government employees showing how much they care about the people they were hired to take care of and then only apologizing after they were caught in a lie. 
News & Features. Hospital apologizes to veteran after telling him to call 911 when he couldn't get inside. May 12, 2015. SEATTLE -- When Donald Siefken drove up to the Seattle VA hospital emergency room earlier this year with a broken foot, all he asked for was a little help getting inside.

This article is bullshit propaganda! Claiming that sense 9/11 Muslims have put out statement after statement condemning extremist violence. Where are these statements, who published them or read them in other forms of media or even posted on the web. I haven't seen them and I'm willing to bet that the vast majority of Americans haven't seen them because there haven't been but a handful.
