Secretary Eric Shinseki has stepped down as head of the Department of Veterans Affairs. We'll talk about what went wrong.
Jay Carney is leaving as White House Press Secretary.
And, it's Friday. Your calls.
VA Secretary Eric Shinseki resigns. Will this make the Department of Veterans Affairs better ? Will this have any long term impact at all. No, this only matters in the world of politics. No one is talking about any real long term plans to make the VA better. There has been many problems with the VA for many years. The government is just not capable of giving vets the care they need. They have shown this time and time again. We just can't keep waiting on the government as they keep trying to get it right. 10 years from now I'm sure we will be talking about the problems with the VA. They are only two ways to make the VA better.
Number 1 - Do not tie down the vets to VA hospitals for care. Vets should be able to go to any hospital , any doctor at any time. And this should not costs the Vets any extra money. This should have always been the way the VA worked.
Number 2 - Fire everyone at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Staff the VA hospitals with military personnel. Make the VA a division of the Department of Defense. This would streamlined paperwork and processing time.
I think these are the only two options. I don't think anything else will make any difference.

In February, the new secretary, Robert A. McDonald, asserted in a nationally televised interview that the department had fired 60 people involved in manipulating wait times to make it appear that veterans were receiving care faster than they were. In fact, the department quickly clarified after that interview, only 14 people had been removed from their jobs, while about 60 others had received lesser punishmentsNow, new internal documents show that the real number of people removed from their jobs is much smaller still: at most, three.New York Times

For more than 20 years I have been exploring out-of-body and keeping my finger on the pulse of humanity’s awakening from an angel’s eye view. When I first began writing publicly in 2002 it was to deliver a series of messages from the Angels of Peace who inspired us globally to broadcast a single prayer/message to the world: CHOOSE PEACE NOW!
At the time, the angels said that they were coming to protect an emerging grid of Global Peace Consciousness that began to strengthen after the 9/11 event. Broadcasting this message is a way of sending an angelic invitation to link up with this emerging Peace Grid that has continued to grow and evolve ever since.
I was further involved with helping to anchor these energies through a series of conferences for the proposed U.S. Department of Peace and, in 2007 I traveled to Iran as a civilian diplomat with a friendship delegation organized by the Fellowship of Reconciliation. Of great interest to me are the fragile peace potentials in the Middle East and elsewhere that are steadily gaining momentum towards an effect of global transformation. My life is dedicated to nurturing these peace potentials to fruition.
In 2005 a council of Ascended Masters appeared in my meditation and asked me to start offering readings to people and they immediately began connecting me with people that felt drawn to receive the wisdom and energy that they have continually placed in my heart. I am honored to serve in this way and to help bring people closer to their guides and to realize more of their potential.

Ann Dunwoody became the U.S. Army’s first female four-star general. She commanded over 69,000 people and an annual budget of $60 billion. She was in charge of the the army’s total global supply chain. Her new book, “A Higher Standard”, talks about her years of service, her pride for the army, and her principles for leadership. She is a delightful person and this is a friendly conversation but she identifies serious problems in military procurement. She expresses the United States has a serious and growing national security problem because of our inadequate industrial base. She is also concerned about the waste in procurement and tracking army purchases. She had to step over command to bring modern tracking systems to the military. One of the first projects to tackle was the “iron mountain” – the term for 40,000 shipping containers in Iraq that the military didn’t even know what was inside. General Dunwoody also talks about the ethics crisis in the military where hubris and entitlement attitudes are affecting military integrity. She also talks about how the military could save money if Congress was less erratic, how one-year of public service for all eighteen to twenty-eight year old Americans would serve them well and serve the nation well, and how undeclared wars are difficult for our democracy and our military.The Tim Danahey Show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective. The show does not espouse a political agenda. Danahey’s strength is to take complex subjects, talk with experts and make them comprehensible and entertaining for average listeners.
