Shinseki and Obama vs Veterans and The American Taxpayer

Eric Shinseki is surprised and appalled at the systemic lack of principles among so many in the VA leadership. Obama is to have a ‘serious conversation’ with Shinseki.

    Denise Williams

    Born and bred in Chicago, now living in the wilds of far suburbia. I'm a Gold Star Mom, a wife and step-mom to two terrific boys. My views are generally politically and socially conservative, though I am far from a Party line Republican. I believe in this country, our Constitution and above all, in the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I believe our government is supposed to serve the people, not tell them how to live. To me, this is just common sense, but since it seems to be a minority opinion, it has become "Uncommon Sense".
