I grew up around veterans and saw how badly they were treated by American society after the Vietnam War.  I have always supported veterans and veteran causes when and where I could.  For years I have quietly promoted the Wounded Warrior Project to help people become aware of the organization.  I will no longer do that after reading this article.  What they are doing is unbelievably unethical and irreverent to the veterans whose needs will never be fully met by our government.  http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/05/04/wounded-warrior-charity-unleashes-hell-on-other-veteran-groups.html
What happens when a non-profit that was started to help veterans becomes the neighborhood bully?

Search engine optimization has migrated from the special study of fringe lunatics and digital marketing mavericks to the 1-slide presentation in the board room. We see fewer “SEO specialist” job listings and more job listings that combine SEO, PPC, and…

Set aside your lists of “Google Ranking Factors”. Set aside your expectations of “rankings”, “traffic”, and “conversions”. Just look at your Website and ask yourself, “Of all the sites I look at every day, is this one the best I can find?” Before we get down to the checklist you’re all looking for, I want to make sure we all understand together that the less interested you are in your own site and content the less interesting they will be to others. We call that the “Intrinsic Signal”, because it’s the same no matter where you look for it: in your cooking, in your dancing, in your driving, in your charitable work. The less interested you are in what you are doing, the less successful you will be at doing it.

You're just a damned fool if you still believe that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/16/world/cia-is-said-to-have-bought-and-destroyed-iraqi-chemical-weapons.html?_r=1
The purchase plan, which began in 2005 and involved a secretive seller, yielded at least 400 warheads, some containing the nerve agent sarin, officials said.

I swear, it's like the news media fired all its experienced reporters and hired brain-dead political zombies.  No one remembers 2500 chemical warheads, some still filled with viable sarin gas, that ISIS seized last year.  It's a good thing they're not WMD because otherwise someone would be in danger.  It's dumb crap like that which sets me on fire.

I have been here several times over the years. Rarely have I had to wait long, usually only when a lot of people were sick with flu and colds. The front desk staff behave professionally but do not engage in chit chat with the patients. The quality of care may vary by doctor and workload. You CAN request to see a specific doctor but you should call ahead to see when the one you want is available (by day) as the doctors may alternate between offices. The best times to go are during "off" hours. Most people see the doctor early in the morning, around lunch time, or late in the afternoon. They will email your prescriptions to your pharmacy. Only had a mixup once and they straightened that out as soon as I brought it to their attention. They can do some diagnostic testing on-site and usually get other test results back within 24 hours. I am pretty sure a lot of local people use this facility as their regular doctor's office.

Very good dining experience. The food was well-made and lacked that bland Americanized quality so much "Asian" food has at mass appeal restaurants. They make the food the way they learned how in China. As Chinese buffets go, this was probably the best I have ever eaten at. I'll go back again.
