Wednesday Morning

By Remy Benoit

From MSNBC, Newsweek, and Jonathan Alter National Disservice.

Mr. Alter seems to feel that Veterans have no problem 'making their case.' If that was so, the VA would be properly funded and administered. And, we would not be looking at these numbers from the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans. You also might want to talk with a "Senior" about their new prescription plan.

WHY Veterans should have to 'make their case' at all is sad commentary on the nation. They served.
They deserve to have our part of that agreement fulfilled. They were there for us. We need to be there for them.


PARALYZED VETERANS OF AMERICA 2006 ANNUAL TESTIMONY PRESENTED BY RANDY L. PLEVA, SR., NATIONAL PRESIDENT BEFORE THE SENATE COMMITTEE ON VETERANSÂ’ AFFAIRS MARCH 9, 2006.


Iraq War Veterans Organization Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD.

From the Christian Science Monitor and Tom Regan Report: Iraq war costs could top $2 trillion New study takes into account long-term costs of healthcare for wounded soldiers.

From CNN Hussein calls for Iraqis to fight.

From the AP and Truthout Feingold Assails Dems on Bush Censure.

There are many positions on many issues today. For those of you who do not know of Howard Zinn, well, you may find his work enlightening, frightening, disturbing, but Dr. Zinn does make one think. From Common Dreams, The Progressive, and Howard Zinn Lessons of Iraq War Start With US History. Online Works of Howard Zinn.

And then there is Eric Alterman's book When President's Lie. Or, Richard Reeves, President Nixon: Alone in the White House.

From the Progressive viewpoint Center for American Progress.

From the Neo-Conservative Viewpoint New American Century Statement of Principles. Mr. Cheney, Mr. Rumsfeld, Mr. Wolfowitz, among others, are signatories to these principles. See bottom of page.

As responsible citizens of a democracy, we are called upon to be informed. That is a lot of work, granted, but how much is your freedom worth to you? Take the time to learn enough to vote wisely.

Think of it this way. When your children were small, you got the best baby car seat you could manage, the best food, clothes, baby sitters, and education for them that you could. Those we elect to office are truly acting in loco parentis, in place of the parent, for your children's, and their children's, future. What candidates do you truly trust with that enough to sleep well at night? Information, study, questioning is the key to understanding, and easy dreams.
