Military Veterans who died while waiting to schedule medical appointments, what might have caused this situation.

Seems strange that there always seems to be a controversy regarding veteran medical care. During the Bush Jr. administration, squalid conditions were reported in veterans hospitals. Apparently they were then cleaned up.  

Now in Barack Obama's term, we hear reports that dozens or perhaps hundreds or maybe even thousands of veterans were delayed before being able to set an appointment. Apparently significant numbers of veterans died while waiting to either set an appointment, or to be seen after making an appointment.

I was watching David Letterman a night or two ago as he interviewed a highly decorated medal of valor when suddenly the reason hit me as to why these ongoing Veteran Medical care problems may exist. The Letterman medal of valor guest had dived on a grenade to save the soldiers around him. Mission accomplished, except for himself.

I do not recall how many surgeries this soldier went through, but it was around a 100 at the very least. Suddenly I understood the conundrum the military hospitals face on a daily basis. Intake one soldier who gave up so much, and the instinct to give them back their life as much as possible takes over.

Here is where it gets twisted. No matter how one does a military hospital budget, it may be inevitable that 2% of the patients will require 50% or more of the hospital resources. It's very difficult for that fact to be acknowledged by the bean counters and number crunchers and the result is what we get, delays for the many so the deserving few get a chance to live a semi normal life again.

Even if military hospital budgets were doubled, it still could mean that 5% of the patients require 50% of the hospital's resources, which could still mean a waiting period for others who have not been "intaked" yet.

I am very curious if the war profiteer companies ever step up and donate any of their dozens of billions of dollars in profits to help out the military hospitals in the U.S.

Is it too simplistic to correlate a solid U.S. Economy with reduced war activity?

Just going back over the past few presidencies, Is there a correlation between reduced war activity and the U.S. economy? 

Most would agree the economy was the healthiest during Bill Clinton's presidency, and for the most part, Bill Clinton stayed away from war other than the final couple of years of his presidency, and ironically, that is when his economy started to show signs of stalling.

Neither George Bush Senior or Jr. led a sustained economic growth other than having economic indicators drop so low that the rebound could be made to look like a solid economic recovery. The only perceived improvement during the Obama years seems to coincide with reduced troop sizes in war zones.

Then we have way too may wall street investment firms coming up with way too many investment schemes that add nothing to the economy but do allow them to take their cut up front. Ironically Wall Street may re-invest their undeserved profit in ways that can actually ruin the prior investment which still has to run its course, oh the irony of that.

What the media calls an improved economy and what I see as an improved economy are two different things. I see the reduction of non-renewable energy in conjunction with sustained economic activity the ideal goal. The media tends to simply view it as how much stuff got consumed and whether or not the numbers can be spun that increased consumer debt is a good thing because it is based on "consumer confidence".

Imagine if all that war money were here at home, being used for excellent health care for veterans, and perhaps several hundred thousand jobs in renewable energy creation, observation (where to place wind energy and solar cells, and installation.

Republican Impeachment Buzzards keep U.S. imperiled.

The latest conservative impeachment talk concerns the recent five for one prisoner trade with the taliban. Isn't it possible the five for one trade was tied into the upcoming reduction of american troops from Afghanistan? Is it possible the purpose of the prisoner trade was to warn the Taliban via their own returned prisoners that lower american troop totals in Afghanistan could mean more aggressive air and drone attacks, not less?

I don't pretend to know, but isn't it possible that whenever prisoner "trades" are made it is to further some type of line of communication that may benefit all in the future? It's possible right? 

If so, then why is it acceptable for republican blowhard politicians to immediately undermine any military move made by the present democrat administration? The automatic and instant undermining of the administrations actions is the very definition of a terrorist, no?

Maybe if the Republicans weren't still diverting much needed attention elsewhere back to Benghazi, they would have been included in the hostage discussion before it happened. Clearly Republican politicians have become so untrustworthy the president can't confide in them on most issues, and that is the real story behind Benghazi and the five for one prison trade.

And this repetitive cycle just means the next important issue in which republican politicians should be consulted with, will be the next important issue in which they are not consulted with. And the non-visionary republican politicians seem to like it that way since they can simply stay on the sidelines, have no real perspective, then bitch and moan whenever President Obama makes a military decision.

Karl Rove Channels Hill Street Blues for his latest tirade against Hillary Clinton.

Clearly Karl Rove wants "Fresh" when it comes to our 2016 democrat presidential candidates, but can Karl Rove pass the "fresh test" himself? 

Otherwise, what is the point of a rotten headed Rove demanding fresh anything?

At some point, Hillary Clinton supporters are going to have to start beating the snot out of Shoe Throwers, Benghazi Bobble Heads, Tea Party Puffers and Progressive Posers.

You Hillary Clinton supporters, quit being the classiest supporters among all the 2016 prospective presidential candidates. You know you are the classiest. You are the ones who are CareGivers, work a job and raise a family, have your own small business and want to treat your workers fairly, even when they don't deserve it.

The truth is, Hillary Clinton Supporters are generally the nicest people, and the poorest people as well. Unfortunately, Hillary Clinton supporters are also the ones who groan when their presidential candidate has a shoe thrown at her.

You Hillary Clinton supporters, I hope the Hillary Clinton Vegas Shoe Throwing incident was your wake up call. You can't just sit and ooh and ahh from the audience when someone throws a shoe at your presidential candidate. You literally have to kick the tar out of the person doing the throwing. 

Start a riot in protest of the Benghazi Bubbleheads, Scald the Tea Party Puffers who couldn't give a crap if 10 of their neighbors lost their homes to unfair foreclosure tactics as long as they can keep cradling their own gun, and punt the Progressive Posers back into la la land who are clueless when it comes to feeling YOUR pain.

Heck, the shoe thrower just turned around and walked out. I think she actually raised her hands to be identified, meanwhile, gasps are heard from the audience. Gasps? Are you effin kidding me? Gasps?

You women in the audience, why didn't you tackle the shoe thrower and pull on her hair and then take her other shoe off and hit her with it? 

I'm serious. 

Hillary Clinton supporters are considered a joke by the other political factions. You should be embarrassed for not rushing forward to protect your presidential candidate, and you should be mad as hell and not going to take it anymore going forward.

Millions of americans lost their homes to foreclosure after Barack Obama was elected president in 2008 and millions more CONTINUE to lose their homes because the democrat party backed a banking puppeteer who could not feel your pain and actually address the mathematical shenanigans that are robbing the non rich elite of their homes. 

Are you really going to just sit back and make groaning noises whenever someone takes a physical or verbal shot at Hillary Clinton? 

Really?

You Hillary Clinton Supporters should come to a Hillary Clinton Rally loaded for Benghazi Bobble Heads, Tea Party Puffers, and Progressive Posers who all want a piece of Hillary Clinton and have no fear that Hillary Clinton supporters actually have her back.

Do you have Hillary Clinton's back? 

If you don't have Hillary Clinton's back, then GET OUT OF THE WAY or, GET YOUR BACKBONE OUT TRACTION otherwise I'll be the one throwing the next shoe at you!

Will Tax Reform Act of 2014 do more harm than good? Will the Getty Center lose its Funding?

One proposal from the 2014 Tax Reform Act of 2014 that has apparently some in the non-profit world concerned is a proposal that all non-profit funds can only be kept for five years. I find this proposal typical of what is wrong with how the present government thinks.

Why should only the non-profit sector be forced to pay down their wealth in five years, what about applying the 5 year spend down rule to the private sector, the billionaires and trillionaires as well. This is typical rule making that may adversely affect everyone but the rich elite.

And yet, I would much rather see consumers being given incentives to pay down their debts so that they can generate more local commerce, which in turn would increase government revenue at both the state and federal level while giving more people an income stream first, than telling anyone how and when to spend their money.

In the meantime, will we be saying goodbye to the J Paul Getty Center in Los Angeles if this 5 year spend down rule becomes law?

Jon Stewart exposes Fox News Food Stamp Hysteria.

I recall Jon Stewart being one of the media in 2008 that could not shut up about the Hillary Clinton / Barack Obama nomination race and simply let the voters decide, and instead pretty much came down in favor of Barack Obama. Probably because of his audience demographics. 

But in this instance, I think his take on Fox News expose' on food stamps is hilarious. The segment about "Give a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach him how to fish, he eats for a lifetime" is priceless.

What I find disturbing is how Fox allows all of these accusations to be made without verifying if any of them are even true.

More Evidence of the Integrity of the Bill Clinton Administration (and Hillary Clinton) regarding Health Care and what to say and not say.

I believe there really was a lot of heartfelt, intelligent internal White House discussions during the Bill Clinton years in the 90's. While Barack Obama had no problem slinging out impossible promises regarding ObamaCare, the Clintons purposely stayed away from false promises. CNN exposes the difference in this article.    

I've said it before, I'll say it now. Hillary Clinton was thrown under the bus in 2008 by George Soros and the higher echelon of the democrat party because she was not going to take crap from Wall Street, and she was not going to deceive the american people over Health Care Reform.

For Barack Obama during his 2008 campaign, it seems like it really was about the sky opening up and celestial angels singing and change would magically happen, aka, saying whatever it took to get elected.

The Comedy of Rand Paul, straight from Wikipedia.

As you can see, I am crediting my source regarding Rand Paul plagiarizing several of his own speeches. I guess since I am crediting my source for this Rand Paul Plagiarizing speeches article I now cannot run for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

In October 2013, Paul was the subject of some controversy when it was discovered that he had plagiarized from Wikipedia part of a speech in support of Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli. Referencing the movie Gattaca, Paul quoted almost verbatim from the Wikipedia article about the film without citing the source.[111][112][113]
Evidence soon surfaced that Paul had copied passages in a number of his other speeches and published works nearly verbatim from other authors without giving credit to the original sources,[114][115] including in the speech he had given as the Tea Party rebuttal to the president's 2013 State of the Union address and in a three-page-long passage of Paul's book Government Bullies, which was taken directly from an article by the conservative think thank The Heritage Foundation.[116][117]  
When it became apparent that an op-ed article Paul had published in the Washington Times and testimony he had given before the Senate Judiciary Committee both contained material that was virtually identical to an article that had been published by another author in The Week a few days earlier,[118] the Washington Times said that the newspaper would no longer publish the weekly column Paul had been contributing to the paper.[119] 
After a week of almost daily news reports of new allegations of plagiarism, Paul said that he was being held to an "unfair standard", but would restructure his office in order to prevent mistakes in the future, if that would be what it would take "to make people leave me the hell alone".[120]

Now its CNN National Political Reporter Peter Hamby attacking Hillary Clinton.

Peter Hamby writes...(about a commercial showing Graham and Hillary Clinton getting along)
"But it's the first time one of Graham's opponents has tried to make hay out of his gracious attitude toward Clinton - and it's another signal that Clinton's standing among Republicans has diminished since she left the State Department a year ago and inched her way back into the political spotlight." 
Um, no it's not Mr. Hamby, that' s just YOUR deranged conclusion interjected into what starts out as an unbiased factual article that then strays into your opinionated nonsensical conclusion, being reported as fact. 

Hamby reveals earlier in the article that there are many republicans vying to win a chance to oppose Graham this fall, and that this is just one tactic that one lesser known candidate is using. 

How does this rise to Hillary Clinton losing popularity among Republicans? It doesn't mean anything other than a political strategy. For Mr. Hamby to imply this tactic by a minor republican candidate means something bad for Hillary Clinton is simply his OPINION, being reported as fact.

It's starting already. The Cable News Networks, desperate for a political battle, are apparently encouraging their alleged journalists to stoke the flames of controversy by interjecting their own opinion into their reporting. Since Hillary Clinton is considered the leader for now, she now has to put up with red herring reports that have the ulterior motive of placing doubt on her worthiness.

I would have left a comment under the CNN Hamby article but apparently the comments were closed less than one day after the article appeared. I got the notice of article from the Daily PUMA feed, couldn't have gotten it much sooner, so I am shut out of commenting over Hamby's idiocy.

Mitt Romney can't keep his stupid mouth shut regarding Bill Clinton.


Mitt Romney's revisionist history regarding Bill Clinton needs to be thoroughly cleansed. Romney thinks that Bill Clinton embarrassed the country. 

Did you all know several of the Republican 12 who went after Bill Clinton in the 90's were having their own affairs? Did you know some of the original 12 republican witch hunters had to resign. Did you know that Larry Flynt had info on some of the 12 Bill Clinton witch hunters but did not release the info. 

One of the most prominent Republicans back then did not even take part in the Bill Clinton witch hunt, aka New Gingrich, because he was involved with an intern himself!


I find it repulsive when out of touch billionaires like Mitt Romney think embarrassment matters more than intentionally and methodically destroying the middle class via absolutely unethical and ongoing parallel foreclosure practices. I find it repulsive when Mitt Romney  stays mum over the sequestration of the elderly's home equity they spent a lifetime building up and now can't access because their income is allegedly too low (it is not, but the standards have been set to make it look like they are too low).

It is this type of out touch mentality where "embarrassment" matters more than millions losing their homes that continues to disable the Republican party.
So lets just clean up Romney's contaminated bile. Bill Clinton is THE ONLY PRESIDENT in the last 90 years to LOWER his annual budget deficit for 8 consecutive years. Should Bill Clinton be embarrassed about that, Mr. Romney?
Bill Clinton left office MORE POPULAR than when he was elected and is the ONLY PRESIDENT over the last 90 years to achieve that feat as well. Should Bill Clinton be embarrassed about that, Mr. Romney?

As for Benghazi, 22 veterans commit suicide in the U.S. EVERYDAY. So explain to me Mr. Romney how Benghazi is a tempest and the suicides of 22 veterans a day in the U.S. is a teapot?

And then explain to me how Benghazi is a tempest while 911 didn't result in George Bush being grilled? The answer is as much as I have contempt for what the democrat higher ups did to Hillary Clinton in 2008, the democrats didn't go after George Bush for allowing the U.S. to be so easily compromised in 2001, yet insane Republican clown posses attempt to paint Benghazi as being worse than 911.

Attack on U.S. soil when we were forewarned, no heads roll, attack on foreign soil, heads roll. So Mr. Romney, which was worse, 911, or Benghazi? Mr. Romney, which IS worse, Benghazi, or 22 veterans committing suicide everyday in the U.S.

Krystal Ball is the latest Hillary Clinton Concern Troll, and yes, she works for MSNBC.

29 year old Krystal Ball, who claims to have been a big Hillary Clinton supporter in 2008 (lol, to that), has voiced her "concern" in an MSNBC commentary that 2016 is just not the right year for a Hillary Clinton presidency. This is known as "concern troll" commentary, pretending to want someone but then sobbing as they explain why "it just can't be, sigh".

In the past DailyPUMA has warned about MSNBC's Hillary Clinton Derangement Syndrome on several occasions. MSNBC's H.C.D.S. will also now be known as Progressive Insanity Syndrome, P.I.S. 

P.I.S. afflicts MSNBC and their inability to simply shut the f-up and let democrat voters decide who they want as their nominee in 2016. Would not surprise me if Arianna Huffington is lurking in the background, again. 

This person really hates Arianna Huffington.

Revisiting my three June 2008, PUMA blog shutdowns by what looks to be a company called Masergy Communications.

In June of 2008 many Hillary Clinton Puma bloggers had their blogs shut down for a few days. Google claimed that they thought they were spam blogs because of the links and had to review them one by one before allowing them to go back online. 

I had three blogs frozen for a few days between June 20, 2008 to June 24th, 2008. Don't recall the exact time frame. However, my stat counter at that time showed that my three blogs that were shut down had as a last visitor the same IP address, and all three blogs had the IP visit at almost the same moment in time, just before they were shut down.

The I.P. address was 64.47.55.246


Many bloggers switched to a different blogging platform in protest of the shut down of Puma Blogs. Too bad because Google does have the best and most generous RSS feed options of probably any blogging format out there.

I tried looking up Masergy Communications on muckety dot com, but nothing came up then, and nothing comes up now. However, one could muckety the executive officers of Masergy communications and and see who they are connected to. Although I am not sure they are still the same officers now as in 2008.

Would be neat to know who initiated the massive shut down of PUMA blogs at such a critical moment in 2008.

Why the loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman is more than the Sum of One Actor.


Something has been gnawing at me about the unexpected death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, and I finally figured out what it was. Besides the fact that Mr. Hoffman was in his prime, and was able to bound back and forth from broadway to theatrical movies while receiving awards in both venues, there was something else that makes his loss deeply profound for the average movie goer who never met Mr. Hoffman but enjoyed his acting talent.

Maybe I am wrong, but it seems to me that Philip Seymour Hoffman was one of the most decorated actors of our time who did not rely on guns as part of his own acting persona. Sure Mr. Hoffman appeared in movies with guns, but Mr. Hoffman as I recall was never publicized for his gun play or action hero panache, yet his characters still had relevance to virtually every movie he appeared in.

This is such a blow to people who are tired of all the gun "play" in movies. It further is a blow because Mr. Hoffman was still in the prime of his movie career and would most likely have dazzled for the next couple of decades without the need to brandish a gun.

For those of you who thought you might grow old watching an actor who rarely if ever relied on guns for his characters to have importance, you have been robbed. For those of you about to hit 50 who are tired of seeing our favorite actors brandishing guns, your future movie going choices may have just become leaner because of the premature passing of Mr. Philip Seymour Hoffman.
