Are you concerned about the welfare of our people and our country?
Anyone that knows me is very much aware that I love this country very much…as well as the wonderful people that populate the United States of America.
In a time when the “Military Draft” was in effect I volunteered to serve in the U.S. Army and served my two year commitment as a patriot. My sacrifice was very minimum compared to that of many soldiers that I see returning from service…having lost several limbs and in some cases their ability to function as normal human beings for the rest of their lives.
And as I think about this tragedy then I hear about some 500,000 to 900,000 returning wounded soldiers who have had pending medical claims for months and years which are overdue in processing by the Veterans Administration. This gets very little media publicity and government attention towards resolution. This week the Army announced that the Walter Reed Army Hospital Warrior Cafeteria would be closed on certain hours and days which would require amputees to negotiate wheelchairs approximately 1/2 mile to receive any kind of food day or night, much less the same food as they enjoy today. Fortunately, due to public outcry the Army reversed this decision on the same day. Then we have the terrorist shooting massacre under trial classified as a workplace event. Due to this government decision, the victims are not entitled to receive hospitalization, care and other benefits they would receive if the event were classified as it really is…an event of war. When we add the tragedy of Benghazi to this list, it seems that we have a total transformation of our military happening before our eyes. The leadership of our county have the opportunity to correct all of these mistakes.
It is for reasons of loving this country and being very concerned about the real status of at least 50-60 million people who are suffering financially, job-wise, emotionally and in many other ways now…that I feel that I must speak out and express my concerns and recommendations for improvement very clearly. I am a “conservative” politically…I believe in living according to the Constitution, with minimum government and minimum federal spending, effective and legitimate social programs, a balanced budget, and protection of our country from foreign invasion….as well as from internal invasion. Many of our countries societal principles have been destroyed for a variety of reasons and our country’s future is being gradually destroyed by many special interest groups.
Since I choose not to discuss these political views on this news publication, I elected this week to introduce my second publication called “The Conservative” which you can find at www.lawattorneylegal.com. I invite you to visit me there and participate with me if that is your choice. If not, then I respect your rights to your opinion not to do so. My position is that every day I watch on TV and listen on the radio to many points of view. By so doing I feel that I have an understanding of many sides of an issue and why people think the way that they do. I invite you to read my point of view and enter into constructive conversation if you choose.
With this information I again invite you to join me on “The Conservative” at www.lawattorneylegal.com. I enjoy this “Dan Norris Blog” very much and will continue to post frequently. Again I encourage you to leave me messages on the “Leave A Reply” section below. If you enjoy any of this material please let me hear from you.
