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.

2014 has been a rough year for military personnel and members of the veterans community. The year began with a budget crisis, following a government shutdown and over five years without a signed and approved Federal Budget. And while some sense of fiscal responsibility seems to have finally come to the White House and Congress, things for those who still serve, and have served, continue to go from bad to worse. Forced drawdowns of active-duty military personnel continue, despite escalations of enemy action in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. The Department of Veterans Affairs, despite the firing of its top leadership and years of saying that they are, "working the problems," in fact was proven in 2014 to be a criminally corrupt and morally bankrupt organization totally failing in their chartered mission. And as if to punctuate the continuing downward spiral for individuals who serve and have served, service/veterans benefits continue to be eroded in the Fiscal Year 2015 budget, which offers only a paltry 1% pay increase to those who go into harms way for America.
To get a better sense of just what military personnel and veterans will be facing in the coming year, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@Greshamj01) for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest co-host this week will be journalist Donna Lyons. Herself a military/veterans spouse, Ms. Lyons writes extensively about the service/veterans community, and has her own intriguing observations regarding their present day experiences and service. Callers are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions to Mr. Gresham and Ms. Lyons, in an hour that we are dedicating to those who serve, those who have served, and those who will serve. Please join us.
Why does the administration treat our military veterans like human garbage? Every year on Memorial Day and Veterans Day, Barack Obama and our other politicians make very nice speeches, but the truth about how they feel about our veterans can be seen in how they are treated every single day.
In the United States today, there are well over half a million veterans that have been waiting for at least 125 days to have their benefit claims processed. Many of them will ultimately have their claims sent back or denied just so a government employee somewhere can get a bigger bonus.
Meanwhile, conditions at VA facilities all over the country are absolutely abysmal, and many veterans have to wait more than half a year just to get an appointment at one of those facilities. Once you start looking into how this country really treats military veterans, it becomes easier to understand why 22 military veterans commit suicide in America every single day.
Our vets have a higher rate of unemployment, a higher rate of poverty, a higher rate of homelessness, a higher rate of depression and a higher rate of divorce then the general population. It is a crying shame. One of the ways that any society is judged is by how it treats military veterans, and the truth is that America has failed miserably. This has been particularly true since Barack Obama has been in the White House..
On any given night, approximately 200,000 military veterans are homeless in the United States
In some areas of the country the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has been caught banning the words “God” and “Jesus” during funeral services for veterans.
The federal government is increasingly labeling military veterans as “potential domestic terrorists” if they express viewpoints that are critical of the government. The following is from a recent article by John Whitehead…
We are a group of disabled Veterans who are active advocates for the rights of veterans who have served in the United States Military and their families. We advocate for the rights of veterans. We talk to the the politicians who want to talk to us and we promote Americanism.

As Americans we have experienced the changes in this country that frankly are now beginning to have citizens of all ages disenfranchised about the direction this country is taking politically. The slow agonizing erosion of morals, values and Christian religious freedom should be a priority and a form of disaster control for all Americans. But to do so first We The people need to completely understand the years of conservative silence that attributed to this spiritual decay. Years after L.J. served his country with the Army Corp of Engineers, He found myself compelled to write a book pointing out to the reader where and why America went wrong which started most of the deep rooted problems. America should face the Dragon of Liberalism and truly understand what actually politically transpired in the 1960s. These ideas used in this book are spoken from a war veterans point of view as it pertains to the political hoax portrayed on the people that has not been faced, once understood it will light a new way of the future.
Most companies set goals, but not all companies can successfully implement their goals. For corporate initiatives to be successful, the corporate goals need to be shared with the rest of the company to establish division, department, and individual goals.
The idea seems simple enough but keeping the goals relevant to the corporate initiatives as they trickle down through different channels of the company can be difficult. Goals can become loose, irrelevant, and meaningless if not done correctly resulting in wasted time and initiatives not being achieved.
For companies that already have a culture of goal setting, you’ll learn techniques for setting and achieving goals that go beyond the basic SMART methods.
If your company is not in the habit of setting goals or is just starting to think about them you’ll find this information useful in making a case in favor of goal setting.
Well, its not not surprising, but it it is sad and horrible. The current anti-authority(police) climate has turned into an even more dangerous climate for police officers. Today I willie will not spend time assigning blameto individuals but explaining the bigger picture and offering much needed solutions.
On Today's Episode, you will meet…(Anjolena North)
Anjolena North is A LIVING MIRACLE: in her early twenties she had a near death experience as a result of a clinic's accidental over dose of Penicillin that resulted in Anaphylaxis shock.
Inspired by her 2 1/2 year old daughter while watching her play dress up with her dolls, the birthing of a MULTI-Simplicity Fashion Design Concept called "MULTI" dress with MULTIPLE wares was born.
She shared her Multi-Simplicity Concept fashion with a major Department Store chain, which resulted in a modified version of her Multi-Simplicity Fashion Concept that helped to make Retail History and increasing the company's REVENUE SALES of OVER $150 million dollars which had never happened before as reported by NEWS Media.
The concept evolved and inspired products like: 3-in-1 use Mr. Coffee, 3-in-1 use video camera, 10-in-1 use Can Opener, a Fashion piece created by a Famous Celebrity having 13 styles, 18-in-1 use kitchenware blender, and many other personal and house hold multi use products...
