I believe that the US military should be a lifetime occupation starting with the
enlistment and ending only upon death. I believe that the businesses of America
should pay for all expenses by a tax on business activity related to America.
Actually, I believe that every American should have the same
benefits except that the benefits start at birth.
The best way to solve the problems of our military veterans is to STOP creating
veterans. I prefer the method of elimination of war, as opposed to the other
option of not letting them come back alive. War is the
no-holds-barred killing of the people of other nations whose leaders are
interfering with our business interests. War between nations is a totally
uncontrolled competition because there is not a superior government to make and
enforce rules for business competition. If we didn’t have a federal
government, wars between the states would be just like the wars between nations.
We don’t have to wait for Jesus to come back. Wouldn’t
it be great if we had part of the work done for the one world government when he
What a wonderful, compassionate way to handle these problems. This is the way
all courts should be run. Like veterans, the main driver behind those who commit
crimes is drug addiction and mental illness. This is widely known among
prosecutors, judges, courts, lawyers, everyone in the system. Yet the wheels of
change to confront the obvious still move slowly, because of vested interests.
Well done to everyone who makes this program work.However, beware
of the false narrative being pushed by some to claim veteran status when they
are not. Also, the efforts of some others to paint all veterans as "damaged
goods" or "baby killers" as part of an anti-military agenda.
The assertion in the story sounds bogus to me and should be verified as to
the original source and validity of the data. "Of the 2.6 million
soldiers who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan over the past 14 years, the
judge pointed out, half have mental and physical impairments to deal with and
one-fifth of them have PTSD." We need to see some proof of this before
accepting it, although special treatment for true veterans is still a worthy
effort.The vast majority of all veterans served honorably, with no
mental health of substance abuse problems. In fact, they bring a wealth of
experience with tremendous responsibility, good decision making, and an
exceptional work ethic, and live sober and drug free.
That is awesome. Wish we could do this with more offenders. I wish these vets
well. I hope they find jobs so that they can continue on their path.
