    Green Mother, we hear and feel our sister Green Mother's pain and sense of betrayal she has suffered. We want to validate it. We are with you and we are with all our brothers and sisters who are not alone in feelings that the nation that has put you and many of our other brothers and sisters who put you in harm's way has abandoned you to a bureaucratic nightmare of benefits and treatments withheld and delayed by heartless bureaucrats, while too many of us are being stepped over by the well heeled.

    A disabled vet buddy of mine who has been on outdated medications, that he was put on by the American government's doctors and when he got to Europe, his European doctors put him on updated medications which had the effect of immediately ameliorating his symptoms that he had needlessly been suffering under. To be clear it's not the fault of the American government's physicians that the federal government wouldn't pay for updated medications.

    The problem is the political will to provide current gold standard medications isn't there. But members of Congress and their families from the same government doctors always get the gold standard of treatment and medication for themselves and to hell with the American veteran, who has been overlooked and stepped over by the well heeled American population, whose very freedom was defended by the veterans that they are now stepping over with inhuman and indeed callous disregard, in what must be seen as a final act of betrayal.  

    You ran into a hardcore progressive whos just another working stiff with an MBA degree & vociferous labor union supporter
