In the Bunker

We all know what happened this past weekend. You'd have to be living under a rock to not know a basket of deplorables showed up in Charlottesville, VA this past weekend to protest the removal of a confederate statue. Things got ugly; with Nazis and KKK and White Supremacists - oh my! - it's certainly not surprising. What should be surprising (but - sadly - isn't), is how our supposed "president" handled it.

You could've gotten whiplash listening to his comments on three successive days. First was the "both sides are to blame" non-condemnation. Next came the specific calling out of Nazis. Finally, he finished with "good people on both sides". Good people on the Nazi side? Really?

Ask a Vet

Good Morning.

From time to time, we tend to get wrapped up in current events here at AAV. We'll go back to basics this morning and take a look at an actual veteran's issue.

It's long since out of the headlines, but every day approximately 20 veterans still commit suicide in these United States. What's becoming more disturbing these days is that more veterans are choosing to drive to a V.A. facility and finish the deed in the parking lot. It almost sounds to me like a final, desperate cry.

Never Forget? We Forgot.

It's been said that when Nazis are framed as just people with differing political views, then we are normalizing genocide.

Every day, we move farther away from the horror of World War Two and the Holocaust. Every day a Holocaust survivor passes away. Every Day a WW2 Vet dies.

Uh....I Got Nothing...
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 08/13/2017 14:21:53

So, I had plenty of great ideas for today's blog. How "both sides do it" and of course, it's all Obama's fault. But instead I think I'll just watch cartoons and put this here. Because I've surpassed SADNESS and already in ANGER mode.

Chaos Theory
Author: TriSec    Date: 08/12/2017 10:25:00

Dr. Ian Malcolm: There. Look at this. See? See? I'm right again. Nobody could've predicted that Dr. Grant would suddenly, suddenly jump out of a moving vehicle.
Dr. Ellie Sattler: Alan? Alan!
[Jumps out of the vehicle]
Dr. Ian Malcolm: There's, another example.
[laughs to himself]
Dr. Ian Malcolm: See, here I'm now sitting by myself, uh, er, talking to myself. That's, that's chaos theory.

The Fallout
Author: Raine    Date: 08/09/2017 13:16:31

I am, once again at a loss for words when it comes to what is happening to our country -- and the world. What 45 said yesterday was indeed dangerous and scary. He's as recklessly impulsive and irresponsible as Kim Jong Un.

Good Morning.

It looks like there might be things happening on the Veteran's healthcare front. A breathy tweet from Dear Leader is extolling the virtues of some recent proposals and technology solutions. I mean, really. It's going to be the best VA we can possibly have.
