Elections have consequences. This is the consequence of electing the dishonorable junior senator from Illinois to be the President.

The leader of the nation's largest veterans organization says he is "deeply disappointed and concerned" after a meeting with President Obama today to discuss a proposal to force private insurance companies to pay for the treatment of military veterans who have suffered service-connected disabilities and injuries. The Obama administration recently revealed a plan to require private insurance carriers to reimburse the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in such cases.

Got that? If you're in the military and get hurt on duty, Obama wants your private insurance to cover the cost of making you whole (or as close to whole as possible) again. This is why the Democrats must loose Congress in 2010, and this piece of slime needs to be chucked out on his ear come 2012.

Added bonus: the book turned me on to a group called The Cruxshadows. Here is the song mentioned in "Von Neumann's War". Citidel
