While some in Hollywood are focused on their own “war” injuries from “bloody, dehumanizing” online comments, Mr. T has been one of the few celebs speaking out about the VA’s mistreatment of veterans. He continues to teach fools some basic rules about honoring vets and keeping our promises.

What’s Mr. T’s prediction for anyone who allows the VA’s corrupt bureaucracy to harm American heroes? We’re guessing this:


‘Mr. T gets it’: ‘Professional pitier of fools’ weighs in on the VA scandal

  • Ghee!

    Oh, Obama is doing something about it alright. While our veterans suffer on waiting lists for treatment, the one is pushing for amnesty and telling our fighting men and women that the next big war is on climate change, or whatever the name du jour is at the moment. All the while having the back of the very man in charge of the VA debacle. Yea, obama is doing something about it alright…

            If only it were actually anger… and not mad as in nutz….

            the guy who skipped class through Harvard, so he could preen in front of a full length mirror admiring himself..

            who was handed every position he had by handlers who made opponents disappear via blackmail.. dirty tricks and media malpractice……

            we as a country had to elect to the White House….

            If this basketcase president isn’t a poster child for paying attention to whom you vote for, lest you get it good and hard…. there hasn’t been a better example.

            it’s like we collectively decided a case of smallpox was just the thing..

      • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

        You get the feeling he wouldn’t know he had a toothache if the NYT’s didn’t tell him about it….

        and he’s supposed to be their best and brightest?

        If his media worshippers weren’t artificially propping up his numbers, he’d be down in the mid twenties on job approval.. he ran and won based on an economic crash..

        and has only made it worse since.. no recovery, no jobs, no dignity after he’s gotten every world leader laughing at him..

        And I thought Carter was a disgrace…. flipsides of the same bent tarnished brass coin… but convinced he’s the shiniest one in the world…

          Hell, he didn’t even know about Sgt Tamooreesi until Fox started covering the story. Obama takes plausible deniability to an art form.

      Today he’s tackling concussions in youth sports. Glad to see he has pivoted his laser-like focus onto something so vital to our very existence.

      This scandal may be the very thing that gets people in this country to finally rise up. I hope I am not wrong.

  • waltermitty2012

    Oh, come on now. Obama’s legacy is far more important than thousand veterans waiting for treatment.

    • Ghee!

      this calls for a selfie with Shinseki to show, you know, solidarity.

      • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

        If only he was as blindly loyal to good Americans… as he is to his crooked cronies, party hacks… proggresive bags of dog snot… then, brother, sister vets wouldn’t be dying so fast on his watch..

        I guess if we vets donated to the DNC’s retirement in Jamaica fund like all his pals, he might then give a damn…

        probably not though… our allegiance to an old document, oath of fealty to it… kind of rubs him the wrong way…

        the Constitution we swore to defend is so… like 5 billzion years old… or something.

        • Ghee!

          well, when you put it like that, it makes him sound…. worse.

          If that were even possible.

          • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

            That it’s so easy to place a comment about him like that, is in and of itself an indictment.

            Does any vet really think he cares?… really?..

            I don’t know any..

            Sorry to hear that. I take the second test for the first time on Tuesday. I wish I could study more but after about two hours my mind starts to drift and it isn’t worth trying to study when that happens.

        • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

          Oh…. her?

          I wonder if she’s still cheesed after we pants’d her on her claims to being just a nonpartidsan independent, that just by sheer happenstance always took the hard left position.

          • Humanary Stew

            Goodness when did she try and claim that?

          • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

            Oh when she came on a thread about that DDT scare lady Carson… claimed she didn’t have an opinion, was looking to research it before giving one..

            after of course she insulted everyone as being uninformed lemmings who had never heard of the woman, and just running off at the mouth off a few tweets we liked…

            the irony, one leftist posted one link to claim none of it was true, which she immediately latched onto as absolute gospel… because she certainly had no opinion before resding that.. and insulting everyones intelligence.

            She may not have overtly said it in those exact words, but her point was pretty stark… that her “research” consisted of simply latching onto the first troll link, escaped her entirely…

          • Humanary Stew

            OK. I saw that thread. I remember her calling us mindless mobthink when she admitted she was going to post the very same thing as someone else.

  • USN Veteran

    as a disabled vet, I can assure you that this issue is not limited to the Phoenix VA & it didn’t just start recently. I’ve been fighting with the VA for almost 25 years now, & their policy is to delay, delay, delay, then deny, deny, deny, & hopefully by then you’ve either given up out of frustration, or died. Google Delay, Deny, & hope that you die, a 60 minutes piece from 7-8 years ago.

      Thank you for your service (wanted to say “Sir” but had no idea of your rank.).

      This is the problem with any huge government bureaucracy, And most Americans just do not understand, or do not want to understand. The no-information voter, liberals and dems are walking in lock-step right off the cliff, taking the US of A with them.

      Veterans are the highest priority, Do away with the VA. Uncle Sam should just cut the check for the bill, to the Vets’ private physician. Would be no problem either, except for all the illegals we’re already cutting checks for…. Disgusting.

        Amen! Over and again. DC’s priorities are upside down. Veterans have earned far in excess of their pay as well as our honor, respect and loyalty in exchange for our continued freedom. The least of our debts as a country to these veterans, really, is all we can afford to pay in attempt to care for their battle injuries. We are not paying our debt.

        The latter set of people haven’t even got permission to stay in the U.S., but all kinds of lobbyists and special-interest groups are lined up supporting them. Consequently, Congress and the President have been geared up to foist upon us “comprehensive immigration reform” all while the veterans languish on waiting lists.

        I’ll say again, how about comprehensive Veterans Affairs reform immediately? These DC politicians are always looking to do something. This issue unites all Americans. So, what’s the hold up?

          “Comprehensive Veterans Affairs Reform”


    • The_Kat ✓vilified

      Thank you for your service! The VA has been plagued with problems going back to the ’70s. Plenty of Vietnam vets can attest to that. Unfortunately libprogs will never admit that this is the future of Obamacare and a single payer system.

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      I remember all the vets who got sick from chemical exposure that had to fight the VA since the 70’s… some troops were actually in the field, and had defoliant dropped directly on them, breathing it in, choking on it.. and the VA resisted helping then for years..

      you can’t even imagine what possible excuse they use…. not that we ever heard one… just as you said…. delay delay delay.. run out the clock..

      thanks brother vet,.. we must have been in nearly the same time..I was luckier, what put me out of the service didn’t disable me.. took a couple of decades later for a job injury for that.

      • USN Veteran

        I was in 87-93. I blew out my knee, tore my ACL, PCL, & MCL. also tore the popliteal artery & had internal bleeding. So, my knee is ruined.

        • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

          80-82.. ear drum torn when a training explosive was tossed on top of me while low crawling through brush, couldn’t get clear, pinned in by vines. Put my head down arms over helmet, didn’t get anything but scratches, but I couldn’t hear in my left ear…just dull ringing.. my hearing was borderline when I enlisted, that injury put me out, can’t hear anything high pitched at all, mid range to low, almost half…

          I was hoping to make it a career, but the 2b reclassification put me out,.. I get by, If people speak clearly, not too fast, without any background noise, I can make out most of what’s said. But… I ask people to repeat themselves, a lot…. lol…. not so bad,.. got all my fingers and toes…

          Knee?…. oh man Brad,… that has got to hurt.. my knees are Ok, but I know guys who blew theirs out too… me, in 04 on the job, back broken in two places.. retired me after a couple years, ruptured discs, 7 vertebrae crushed.. still.. lucky enough.. I can still walk, though it’s getting harder and harder each year.

          wish you the best on your knee.. those are never fun.

          • USN Veteran

            the best to you also Mark. back problems are the worst. I hope it doesn’t get any worse

  • mrspinky85

    People keep saying the VA has been messed up for years. What generation will be the generation that says enough? I understand no President before Obama has solved the VA problem. It’s is a gov’t ran organization that the government is run inefficiently. Yet, some people think the government is the answer to our problems. What gov’t organization is run efficiently?

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      I am starting to love the idea of just disolving the VA, then opening a veteran’s billing office…. just see your doctor, have him bill them…

      no bureacracy, no VA hospitals.. just pay the bills under civilian care.

      the savings in costs of a bloated bureaucracy alone would help pay for some of the care..

      just kill the VA… before it kills more of us.

    • Michael Ruda

      I have a VA story. It’s not a healthcare story mind you, and I’m not a veteran. However I think it will show the level of incompetence we are talking about. I worked for a contractor that was involved in a renovation of a VA facility in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. It was a small renovation, under 5,000sq. ft. The VA acted as their own general contractor. Every “unforeseen situation that was uncovered during demolition resulted in delays, red tape and foot dragging. The project was delayed so much that we could no longer due the work due to escalation, meaning we had to increase our estimate do to labor rate and material price increases. From the time we started the project, the empty lot across the street turned into a 4 story office complex with an attached three level parking garage. To the best of my knowledge the project is not finished and I started on it nearly 6 years ago…….

    In part, collectivism refers to the notion that society somehow magically exists apart from the individuals comprising it and must therefore be centrally planned and directed.
