Mark:

"Robert: You lie. I figured out what your dad does. He works as a technician for his reserve unit. Which is a pretty cushy job."

Obviously you haven't served in the last 10 years.

"And a job he would not have taken if his time in the reserves was as horrible as you state."

Or he was that desperate for good paying work. Nothing useable outside the military.

"In my reserve career I have seen many a reservist covet those jobs. The pay is good and you do have full federal benefits."

Yes you do, thus why he took the job... Crushing debt caused by saving my mothers life with seeking medical care without health insurance gave my father no alternative.

This is why unlike my father, I won't start a family without a usable set of skills that can be used anywhere in the world. (I learned from both of our mistakes)

"You are also building two federal retirements. Your military reserve retirement and your GS retirement. Which means your dad will possibly be making more money when he retires than he does working."

Sadly no. He is being forced to accept medical retirement and will lose his GS job before his twenty years on the job.

The only good news is that my mother retains insurance through his medical from being retired on a medical issue relating to the war.

We are still fighting to get him his 100% disability through the VA. Our (the Va and other) math shows that my father will only make 2/3-4/5 of what he earned last year.

We'll survive, hopefully someone picks up one of my books... 

Would be nice to get the money from reserving the rights to the book as a movie. (where the money is for the other 99% of writers... Not the actual movies but endless limbo of being paid royalties for the rights to make your book into a movie)

Mark, you can tell when he is lying, just watch for his posts. Honestly, blocking him was like a breath of fresh air. All he did was fill up the screen with repeated lies.

"Robert: Your mother works at a gas station? From your earlier posts you mother is so sick she cannot work any more. This is the reason you live in the basment so your farther has enough money to take care of her... You lie."

You people must have the shortest memories possible. I have seen 3rd graders with better attention spans than you.

My mother was and is sick. But because of surgeries and medical care which she was provided in part due to ignoring what we could afford and going into many thousands of dollars of debt which we couldn't pay back before my father obtained his government job which enabled us to pay the debt back. (thus trading his health to pay for the debt) And the medical insurance his government job provided, my mothers health improved enough that she could work.

You have been told this multiple times, you simply choose to forget it when you wish to take poorly made attacks upon me.

VA:

We are in this economic mess only because people like yourself have chosen to expect the common man to be able to magically stand on their own... The common man has never in all of history been expected to stand on their own.

Your wealth is based only upon the government providing welfare to the people. If it stops, because you don't want to pay taxes anymore... No one will be able to buy anything, managers will be unemployed as their stores will close and the people will turn to the government to provide.

You will either forced the government to become socialist if we are lucky, communist if we aren't.

Or worst, you will encourage a radical to take power and promise things he/she cannot provide without total war. Such leaders will only bring devastation upon this nation, the likes of which we haven't seen here, but Europe has.

You have never met desperate people. I have. You haven't ever met people who would kill you for the cloths on your back, I have.

These people aren't so desperate because they didn't have a strong work ethic, they became so because of people who would have them work harder for less until they became broken and could no longer work hard enough and were tossed out because their employers threatened to fire them if they reported the work place injury and then fired them anyway after a point in time which the worker couldn't claim the work place injury.

I have seen it myself in a grocery store, my mother works such a job in a gas station and my father has worked for factories which would lose (death) one to two workers a year.

You would have the government agencies which come down on such employers gone, because you don't want to pay taxes. Such employers would only make the work place more dangerous, work loads heavier and days longer.

You need to learn what shoveling sixteen tons of coal is like every day.

If your household should grow, and you have to put kids thru college, and you haven't gotten a raise, you will have to make cuts to your entertainment budget and just about everything else.

I wrote: "... once again Google turns up page after page of right wing nut blogs repeating the story. No actual quote from Debbie W-S, no complete menu, .."

Note that this is about the Congressional cafeteria "story" you relayed. I didn't quibble for a minute about the million or so spent at hotels by the Biden excursion. Just that it doesn't seem to be a bit "newsworthy".

Yes, it's very hypocritical of the right-whiners who bitch about lax security when something bad happens.

Taking a sliver of facts, devoid of context, virtually never creates a worthwhile discussion. I've never quoted a dailykos. Don't think I have ever seen it or know what it is. There's only one of me, so "you guys" doesn't actually address me.

"VB, once again Google turns up page after page of right wing nut blogs"

My Federal Budget office signed, dated and detailed expenditure authorization which noted the number of rooms, room nights, total charges (in GBP) and purpose of the visit (VP visit) wasn't good enough for you? The FBO is now a "right wing nut blog"?

Look dude -

You guys post shit from the dailykos all the time. Like many blogs, the quality of analysis and opinion ranges from total vile shit to absolutely excellent, but the very left wing bias is there.

When you post things from the dailykos, I never take the cowardly way out and say "Well, it's from the dailykos, so it's obviously left wing propaganda". No. I take the time to actually look at the numbers and analysis and see if it checks out.

You aren't doing that. You are dismissing the information because of who you're hearing it from, with no effort whatsoever being made to actually challenge the information.

I could just as easily say "Well, it's from Outdoors, so it's obviously left wing" and dismiss it. But no. I give you the respect to take what you say seriously, especially when it's quantifiable facts that you are discussing.

So come on. Be fair. I am tiring of this crap.
