What is the medical diagnosis when your blood boils every time you read about the Veterans Administration? I ask because I have that condition. The latest outrage comes from the VA health center in Albuquerque, where dozens of veterans who tested positive for colorectal cancer were not informed in a timely manner, putting their lives at risk. Three of them waited for three to nine months before being informed, and a fourth was never told at all and only discovered he had cancer when he went to a doctor for the pain. Of those four, two have already died.
If you are thinking of withholding your vote from Trump or helping Hillary win by voting for a third party, and all the arguments about the economy, the Second Amendment, the Supreme Court and the rest haven’t swayed you, then please consider this: Hillary represents a continuation of the current Administration’s VA practices. Trump has vowed to reform the VA and put our veterans first. And we know that he’s an expert at saying, “You’re fired!” Isn’t it long past time we had someone who will put that skill to use on the VA?
The Washington Post asks the question that’s keeping Americans awake every night in a cold sweat of fear and trepidation: “Is my dog’s Halloween costume sexist?” Before you despair at your fellow Americans’ insane priorities, read the hilarious comments and be reassured that this lunacy has only infected people who write for the Washington Post, not (most) people who read it.
The final revisions for second quarter GDP growth are in. The economy officially grew at a whopping 1.4%. That keeps Obama on track to become the first President in history never to preside over a single year of GDP growth above 3%. Plus, while Hillary Clinton demonizes corporations and promises to soak the rich with new taxes, corporate profits over the past four quarters have declined by 4.3%. She also promises to supercharge the economy with four more years of the same liberal nostrums of taxes, regulations and government spending that have given us one of the weakest recoveries from a recession ever. Investors Business Daily points out that it’s the slowest of the 10 recoveries since World War II. If Obama’s recovery had even matched the average of those recoveries, the US economy would be $2.2 trillion bigger than it is now.
And yet, liberals keep pumping out memes to share around Facebook that try to convince us that Obama’s amazing record on economic growth outshines even Reagan’s. No, not by a longshot. A farmer can brag that his corn is growing, but if it only grows three inches in a year, everyone’s going to starve.
Remember those media reports about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu being booed by the crowd at a performance of the Broadway musical, “Hamilton”? Well, turns out there’s video of his arrival in the theater, and I'll bet you a Hamilton that it proves otherwise:
