So what your REALLY saying here is that it is ok to make any allegation and then not show something to back it up?
it's not actually 'baseless', however i don't feel compelled to try and prove..(anything to you)
Well as knowingly posting FALSE information on ATS is a violation of use, AND that making potentially harmful statements against someone publicly, in a mass media environment COULD legally be construed as SLANDER and/or LIBEL, you would think that the FIRST person that would care is the person making the accusation...for their own credibillity and protection.
'bush bashing' was implied. my point is 'WHO CARES!'
First off, prove my facts wrong about the opening LIE that was spewed to slant this thread with. If you do, ill publically state a retraction. ill never come back to this thread deal?
the bigger problem i have with your OPINION is that you think everyone must share it.
OH REALLY? Explain this statement then
bush bashing has nothing to do with starving, freezing homeless vets, which is what the thread is about.
Now go back and re-read this entire thread and count the # of times that Bashing Bush has come into play here....damn man its printed for all to see, why cant you?
Bush's budget is a priority list, and veterans aren't on the list.
If you claim my information that counters your opening LIE is propaganda and/or false...PROVE IT.....How is asking and asking and asking for you to provide MORE info about your allegation trying to silence you? Id say that was rather engaguing to try and get more input from you not less.
you are pushing Bush propaganda - and trying to silence the opposition.
I see, so because you dont like the source, the information there MUST be false eh? What kind of Homer Simpson logic is that?
you use bad sources
type of name calling...it indicates you cant do more than take a cheap shot because your argument has no defense.
And im not here to swallow blatant LIES either.
Im NOT here to defend BUSH!!!!!

For 2006, the budget requests total resources for the VA Medical Services appropriation of $22.4 billion, an increase
of $659 million ($25 million in appropriation and $635 million
in collections) over the 2005 level. This includes $19.8 billion
in appropriated budget authority and $2.6 billion to be collected
in the Medical Care Collections Fund.
The budget request also includes a comprehensive set of
legislative and regulatory proposals that will continue to concentrate
VA’s health care resources to meet the needs of our
highest priority core veterans—those with service-connected
conditions, those with lower incomes, and veterans with special
health care needs. These proposals are discussed in the
Medical Services legislative proposal section.
Medical Services.—Provides for a comprehensive, integrated
health care delivery system that addresses the needs of eligible
veterans and beneficiaries (except non-service-connected
veterans and veterans exceeding the income threshold) in VA
medical centers, outpatient clinic facilities, contract hospitals,
State homes, and outpatient programs on a fee basis. Hospital
and outpatient care is also provided by the private sector
for certain dependents and survivors of veterans under the
Civilian Health and Medical Programs for the Department
of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA).

NONE of the programs for vets or s.s. or medicare, foodstamps or welfare were EVER ment to be or become the SOLE means for someone to survive on...they are measures that are to help ease the burden, not replace other forms of "coverage".
Anyone that expouses the government funding entire coverage is looking to socialize the system.
