Why are just the Statues of the Southern leaders of the Civil War being torn down:

Why are just the Statues of the Southern leaders of the Civil War being torn down. Why aren’t the Northern leaders of the Civil War also torn down. The Civil war was never about slavery but rather about greedy northerners angry because Southerner’s were pay freight charges or tax’s. The Founding Fathers also owned slaves, so why aren’t they being taken down also. This is a list of the Founding Father’s who supported and this can be found in Google.
· George Washington.
· John Adams.
· Benjamin Franklin.
· Thomas Jefferson.
· Alexander Hamilton.
· James Madison.
· John Jay.
· Patrick Henry.
So why is Southern statues and the Confederate Flag coming under fire and causing so much hate and violence? Further why aren’t the African Americans here in the United States standing up and protesting for the freedom of their brothers and sisters in bondage, and be tortured, raped and murdered in Africa and other third world countries?

THE FOUNDING FATHERS AND SLAVERY
, Although many of the Founding Fathers acknowledged that slavery violated the core American Revolutionary ideal of liberty, their simultaneous commitment to private property rights, principles of limited government, and intersectional harmony prevented them from making a bold move against slavery. The considerable investment of Southern Founders in slave-based staple agriculture, combined with their deep-seated racial prejudice, posed additional obstacles to emancipation.

In his initial draft of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson condemned the injustice of the slave trade and, by implication, slavery, but he also blamed the presence of enslaved Africans in North America on avaricious British colonial policies. Jefferson thus acknowledged that slavery violated the natural rights of the enslaved, while at the same time he absolved Americans of any responsibility for owning slaves themselves. The Continental Congress apparently rejected the tortured logic of this passage by deleting it from the final document, but this decision also signaled the Founders’ commitment to subordinating the controversial issue of slavery to the larger goal of securing the unity and independence of the United States.

I Hate Old Age, Sickness & All That It Brings With It:

I don’t feel sorry for Jerry Lewis, or any of the rich senior citizens who live into their 90’s.  They have round the clock caregivers who take care of their every need, however for the poor it another ball game altogether.  Mother Teresa once refused a patient pain medication instead telling the patient that his pain was Jesus kissing him, to which he replied “Would you please tell Jesus to stop kissing me”.  For a senior citizen living below the poverty line Asthma, Bronchitis and COPD are no fun things to deal with anymore than Chronic Fatigue and full blown depression, all of which strips away the quality of life of the sufferer.   Locations like Morrilton AR and environments, living with family members and being unable to bath because of Chronic Fatigue and COPD all play a roll in aggravating depression.  Point that out to people in this nowhere hell hole town and they just tell you “If I hated Morrilton that bad I’d get my ass of out it”.  Well my reply to that is “By God my ass was out of it, and out of Arkansas as well, more times than I care to count”.  When people from Morrilton found out where I was the evil from Morrilton reached out and fucked up every God Damned thing, until there was no other option other than to come crawling back to Morrilton, where I am not really wanted but merely tolerated.  Why can’t I just die and get out of everyone life so no one has to be bothered with me anymore.  My roots are not in Morrilton, most of my immediate family are dead now and people here refuse to believe Psychic Vampires controll this evil rotten little nowhere prison town.  People like me are written up as psychotic and delusional, evil lives and thrives in this miserable little hell hole town.  When people like me are no longer useful, we’re killed off through disease, in piecemeal no less.  Than let death come and take me, for I’m strictly fed up with being locked into Morrilton and barely able to even go out of the house, guess the God Damned Cowardly Doppelgänger or the Psychic Vampire is to God Damned afraid of running into me now.  All who read this will think me just another one of those crazy Vietnam veterans, until it happens to you and by then of course it will be to late.  Bring on World War III and bring an end to this unholy world we are all existing in, the rich get richer and the poor get shit all over.  Veterans live on the streets in poverty and their children draw fat monthly checks from the VA because of them, as do the the assisted living centers and the veteran gets maybe 95 dollars a month if he’s lucky, everybody makes a dollar off of the veteran, except the veteran him/herself, we’re fucked out of all of the money.  The only thing welcome in the GLBTQ community is our money.   As for the gay veteran well we’ve never been welcome among them, nor are we even welcome in the Bisexual community, least ways I’ve never been welcome among them, most assuredly not welcome among the straight community.

2017 And Still No Really Big Earth Shaking Medical Breakthroughs

Posted by R Gilbert on January 6, 2017

Here we are going into 2017 and still no really big earth shaking medical breakthroughs, none that I’ve been aware of leastways. Disease is still with us as is AIDS, Cancer and the big diseases and Chemo Therapy is still “Death In A Bottle”. Extraterrestrial space aliens still haven’t come forward and went public, nor given us any really useful technology.  Self-driving cars are still in the experimental stage, nor has the flying car become a practical reality, & economic collapse or WW 3 still hasn’t happened.  Scientist have now discovered the so called “Element 115” 2003 which Bob Lazar first spoke of in the 1980’s and “supposedly” at that time was nothing but a hoax and Bob Lazar was nothing more than a crackpot. Transparent Aluminum first talked about in the movie Star Trek The Voyage Home also 1980’s is now a science fact, there are no aliens from outer space & officially UFO’s still don’t exist.  No one quite knows what is going to happen when Mr. Buzzard Elect takes office, and that’s if the Buzzard even does take office (and no I didn’t care or vote for that “female demon creature” who won the popular vote either).  Most Americans are royally POed because they feel Russia rigged and/or meddled in the election, but feel it’s perfectly OK for the US to topple, assassinate and/or meddle in the elections and affairs of governments in other countries, extremely hypocritical if you ask me. 
The Department Of Veterans Affairs is still just as corrupted as it’s even been.

And in the words of one Sonny & Cher “The Beat Goes One”

I Added A WiFi Card To The Maximus VIII HERO (Z170)

I added a WiFi card to the Z170 today, which I ordered from NewEgg. GIGABYTE Model GC-WB867D-I (ver. 2) Bluetooth 4.0/WiFi Expansion Card Installation time took 12814255_10153874110636900_3840221822910428938_nabout three minutes and required plugging it into one of the three PCI slots and securing it with the thumb screw.  After powering up the Maximus VIII and installing the included driver, plus restarting the Z170 the wireless portion hooked right up to the Internet.  Not thrilled with that 30 to 35 degree Celsius temperature reading though. My contact in Louisiana, tells me that’s about normal for the liquid cooled systems.

Veteran Denied Care, Commits Suicide In VA Parking Lot:

rndr_670x300A 76-year-old veteran of the United States Navy committed suicide outside of a New York VA hospital after allegedly being denied care.  On Aug. 21, Peter A. Kaisen, who served in the Navy from 1958 to 1962, shot and killed himself outside the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center after he was allegedly denied care by the facility even though he was a recurring patient.  “He went there for help with depression,” Thomas Farley, a friend of Kaisen’s for 40 years, told Fox News. “That was his last hope, and he didn’t get any help.” In the 1960s, Kaisen was injured in a car accident while working as an officer for the Long Beach Police Department. His injuries left him permanently disabled and he required constant medication. Sources told The New York Times that before taking his life, Kaisen was upset because the VA hospital would not allow him to see an emergency-room physician for a mental health condition. “He went to the E.R. and was denied service,” one person who currently works at the hospital, told the paper. “And then he went to his car and shot himself.”

Primary Reason Why Veterans Aren’t Awarded Service Connected Compensation:

Posted by R Gilbert on July 24, 2016

The primary reason why veterans aren’t awarded Service Connected Compensation is the first person, the adjudications officer is writing lies about the veteran.  My own experience is hearing loss and even though I’ve attended every hearing exam the VA has set up for me the adjudications officer is writing I haven’t attended them.  I was informed this by one of the VA personal in the Atlanta VA Regional Office whom I talked with by phone, and who also blamed Congress for all of the trouble with the Veterans Affairs Department.  I am damned dismayed officials in the Veterans Affairs Department are blaming Congress for what they themselves are responsible for.   Merely thinking a veteran for their service isn’t good enough and to me its an all out insult & a cold slap in the face by VA officials.  VA psychiatrist aren’t even allowed to fill out the forms for a veteran who is experiencing PTSD, another cold slap in the face.  Call the Under Secretary’s cell phone number cell# (513)509-8454 and leave a message or send him an email message robert.a.mcdonald@va.gov and complain, those people on the adjudications board are directly responsible for veterans being denied compensation and extreme severe reprimands should be either written against them or they should fired.  Something else a veteran might wish to consider applying for is Veterans Aid & Attendance, a single veteran who needs help in dressing, bathing, and in home care can draw $1788 dollars per month tax free.

Washington (CNN)The former head of the Veterans Affairs office in Phoenix, who was fired in the wake of the VA wait-time scandal, could find an easier path back to her old job because of a decision by Attorney General Loretta Lynch.  Sharon Helman, who is suing the federal government to win her old job back, is arguing that a key portion of the reforms passed in the wake of the scandal is unconstitutional and denies her an important step to appeal her firing. Lynch alerted House Republican leaders Tuesday that the Justice Department will continue fighting against Helman’s reinstatement but is ceding that important argument to her.  I note that the scope of this decision is narrow. Although the Department of Justice has decided not to defend (VA reform law) against the Appointments Clause challenge in this case, the department will continue to defend the vast bulk of the statute,” Lynch wrote in a letter House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy Tuesday. The letter was obtained by CNN on Wednesday.

Personal Note:  People this is why The Department Of Veterans Affairs and the VA Healthcare System is so screwed up and has reached such a disgraceful state of affairs, why veterans are dying, because Neanderthal Buffoons like Sharon Helman and criminals are given back their old jobs to continue on with their incompetence and criminal conduct.

New VA watchdog pledges more transparency:

WASHINGTON — The new inspector general at the Department of Veterans Affairs is hoping to quickly repair the office’s image after nearly two years of criticism for cursory investigations and 635981646445829028-Michael-Missal-1secrecy.  Michael Missal, who began work last Monday, said he plans to reach out to veterans’ groups, Congress and others to let them know his door is open and he plans to be more transparent.  I feel very strongly that the public has a right to know the work of the VA IG’s office,” Missal told USA TODAY in an exclusive interview, his first since taking the job.The inspector general is an independent authority responsible under federal law for rooting out fraud and mismanagement at the VA and keeping Congress — and therefore, the public — “fully and currently” informed. But USA TODAY investigations found that his predecessors failed to release the findings of 140 probes of VA health care and sat on the results of 77 wait-time investigations for months.  In one case, an investigation found doctors at a VA Medical Center in Tomah, Wis., prescribing dangerous amounts of opiates. The IG briefed VA officials on the findings but didn’t release a public report, trusting they would fix the issue.  Five months later, a 35-year old Marine Corps veteran, Jason Simcakoski, died from mixed drug toxicity as a patient there after doctors added another opiate to the 14 drugs he already was prescribed.  Missal said he plans to look into that case and why the report wasn’t released.

On a personal Note:  The next Department Of Veterans Affairs IG Buzzard to scream for more money to funnel under the table and into his own nest.  See’s All, Knows All, Tells All, Eats, Sleeps, Shits, Farts And Solves Absolutely Nothing.

Salt & Pepper Mills

Posted by R Gilbert on April 30, 2016

91lXR-MPB2L._SX522_I first ordered this Lux Moderne Salt & Pepper Grinder Set, I’m not thrilled about having to invert the mill to grind the salt or $_1pepper, unlike the Oak wood mill which doesn’t require me to invert it to use it.  I’ve been watching a ton of cooking videos on YouTube, and noticed that quite a few of the cooks use wooden Salt & Pepper Mills.  So I ordered this Oak wood salt & pepper mill from eBay and it will be arriving on or about May 5th.  Can’t wait to see how it holds up grinding The Spice Lab’s Himalayan Coarse Grinder Sea Salt, which I’ve also noticed a good many cooks on YouTube use in their cooking presentations.  As for the salt itself, I would have to say it holds it’s on against regular powdered table salt, so I ordered two pounds or 1 kilogram, and if you aren’t familiar with kilogram measurements then don’t feel alone neither am I  and was obliged to look it up on the web before ordering it.  Stay away from the wooden salt/pepper grinder pictured at right its inferior to what is actually pictured.  I contacted the seller and they emailed me a return UPS shipping label.  This one is definitely heading back for a refund, you don’t actually get the one pictured what you do get is one very similarly made, still different from the one in the picture just not with the high gloss shine like the one in the picture.  UPDATE:  I decided to keep the wooden salt & pepper grinder, after a little experimentation, I found the grinder works out fairly well, although not as good as the Lux Moderne Salt and Pepper grinders pictured at right.  I also like the fact the Lux has a glass bottom and the contents are clearly visible.
