Screwing the Vets -- Again

Over at Main and Central, there's a link to a blog post on Low and Left that contains some shocking information:

Lt. Gen. Terry Scott (U.S. Army, ret.), who is Chairman of the Veterans' Disability Benefits Commission (VDBC), wants to study vets who get Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) as well as VA compensation. The goal is an offset (reduction) in payments to veterans. The VDBC's charter doesn't allow this, so, in an unconstitutional move, he asked Congress to interpret their own law, to give him permission to do this. And, unbelievably, he's got that permission. Veterans...it's time to get angry.
Thanks for serving your country, and don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out to your freeway onramp with your "disabled vet will work for food" sign. Fuckin' A it's time to get angry. These fuckers think they can get away with anything and the veteran community will just roll over and take it.

Fuck them. This is a bunch of bullshit and we're not going to take it.

You can reach General Scott by email at veterans@vetscommission.intranets.com, or by phone at (202) 756-7729. Let's show the bastards that we still serve our country and our fellow veterans.

This is more evidence of these right-wing bastards screwing over the military with the help of these General officers. These sellout Generals are promised big corporate deals to go along with this criminal Republican cheney/bush administration and screw over the Enlisted Men and Junior Officers they are sworn to look out for.

It's not surprising. A former army chief of staff told Dumsfeld that he needed a larger entry force to adequately occupy and he got retired. Then we heard about transport vehicles without armor, GIs having to purchase their own body armor. Couple all this with the administration's attempt to attack worker's rights to overtime pay and about 10 other different attacks on the middle class...it's sad, but it's just not surprising at all.

HMC_LAVADOGS, how many deferrals did cheney get?

I believe it was 5, as DICKHEAD cheney said "He had other priorities at the time." The criminal repubnican fuck!
