"Why we make more sense than Washington" Re-enacted Daily.
From WAR 360 Arizona needs not look far afield to see our own Senator
McCain has gotten himself deeply involved in all manner of wars:
economic, terror, and drugs. Not to mention controversy and accusations
from mudslinging anger tantrums to greediness, to dirty tricks with
fake Secret Service agents… up to & including the serious charges
of treason and acts involving foreign agents and patently criminal
conspiracies. My own gripes with John stem from his abusive attitude
& rudeness exhibited publicly at a Tombstone, AZ "Town Hall
Meeting" with John. It grew to frustration with the Senator when he
failed to assist this veteran with a single phone call or letter. But
compared to the continuing mountain of evidence against John, a
preponderance of which is very damning, my problem is just his neglect
& abuse of me & my case and missing about $100,000 in Veteran’s
benefits I should have continued to receive. His position on the DRUG
WAR and his other character flaws make it a difficult position for me,
wishing to be a fair journalist, a reasonable veteran, and providing an
honest journalistic service to the community he is supposed to
represent, here in the border war zone we call "The Gunbelt." This
includes discussion & research into how the "drug war" impacts life
in the smuggling corridors, how Border Patrol operates in our back
yards and ranches, and what we can be aware of in similar regards and
related issues, so we can continue to protect our Rights to Quiet
Enjoyment [a legal term] on our own Private Properties. We also want to
keep the deserts & mountains safe and accessible, and ourselves and
our guests unrestrained, unimpeded, and FREE to enjoy this beautiful
area in PEACE.

a new mission for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and argued

to receive care at private, for-profit hospitals — in other words, an
