BarkingUnicorn: They're not homes for homeless veterans, they're NURSING homes for veterans!


I was under the impression that California was building these useless old farts McMansions with large teevees and refrigerators and stuff. That's what the headline says. Are you saying subby is illiterate?

Aikidogamer: Weaver95: technically, that would be everyone on the north american continent who isn't native american. you're gonna have to narrow it down a bit.

Natives are technically foreign invaders too...crossed a land bridge. They get good and pissed when you remind them of that fact.


Just like white supremacists when you remind them that everyone's originally from Africa.

Foreign invaders

The Native Americans would have to leave too because their ancestors came from Asia. They just immigrated a wee bit earlier than the rest of the world. That leaves nothing but animals. Wooly animals.

namatad: MaudlinMutantMollusk: never an envisioning of having a continuous supply of wounded veterans, and states felt obliged to their residents who volunteered.

WHAT THE FARK
The only reason that we currently have such a large supply of wounded soldiers is because of two incredibly farked up wars started by W.

Korean and Vietnam were a cake walk in comparison.
Toss in the insane expense of not having a draft and using contract labor instead???
Shudder
What a complete waste of life and money.

/We need a new amendment. Any time an american is deployed overseas (war, peacekeeping, whatever) it is required that there be a draft and that all children/grandchildren/aunts/uncles/cousins of congress (of proper age) be deployed first.
/no deferments - period. they can peel potatoes


What the fark are you talking about? Iraq War II and the Afghanistan campaigns are the least bloody major wars that the United States has participated in in history. Modern medical and battlefield trauma care, combined with rapid evacuation of casualties to Level 1 Equivilant surgical intervention centers and, once stabilized, transfer to definitive care in friendly territories have reduced the mortality rate of injured American and NATO soldiers to around 2-3%. You have a better chance of living in that combat zone after a major, life threatening traumatic injury, then you do in the United States.

Vientam had 59,000 Killed in Action over 8 years of combat. In 10 years of operations, only 4,400 people have been killed in Afganistan.

Is this the same California that banned "Meals on Wheels" after making it a crime to give any form of aid to the homeless, or is this the same California that is allegedly filled to the brim with "left-wing liberal pinkos?"

Why do people keep saying things like this? Most of us aren't descended directly from people who stole land from them ol' Injuns. I'm pretty sure most of us have ancestors who came to Ellis Island (or similar), asked the first people they saw "Hey, it it ok if we move in?", heard "sure, come on it!", and weren't "invading" anything. I'm also pretty sure that the "actual" homeowner never said "Hey, get out of my house" - and so, after a couple hundred years, I'm pretty sure most of us have some kind of universally-recognized squatter's rights by now. ;)

Weaver95: ah yes, but according to some radicals (one of which is in this very thread) we need to completely cut ALL funding to those places because there MIGHT be someone there who isn't a veteran.


WE'RE ONLY ALLOWED TO ASSIST A SELECT GROUP OF HUMAN BEINGS AND THE REST IS FOR SALARIES! *sigh*

It's like we forgot why we created buildings and plumbing and A/C power and made up money as a convenient way to fund the necessary gathering of materials and labor.

Hint - It wasn't to make fat, old thieving bureaucrats rich. Remember, y'all. You can't spell 'bureaucrats' without 'rats'.

When your society has become enslaved by the things it created to serve it, your society has jumped the shark.

Bad planning. It's like the trailer trash guy who saves up for a classic Jaguar. Then can't drive it because the maintenance is too expensive.

FTFA: "The state budget signed last week by Gov. Jerry Brown sets aside $4.2 million to operate the homes over the next year, enough money to "ramp up" staffing, Arteaga said, but not enough to serve any residents."

Why does that sound familiar?

Oh, and the followup.

Be specific ... or be a pre-emptively defensive thread sh*tting Fark Independent, who's ready to nail himself up.

I'm guessing the latter.

WTF was that?
