Well, well, well … the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that California’s state prison population has been overcrowding its facilities and the criminal thugs incarcerated there are being mistreated and need better housing with tender love and care. Otherwise, they need to be released back into society.
There was a time when America took seriously its responsibility to incarcerate those who inflicted harm upon our society. In addition, America also took responsibility to provide our Military Veterans with proper care and services. Today, it’s the complete opposite.
Now, we give special housing and preferential treatment for those who have harmed our fellow citizens, while those who have protected and defended our nation’s safety have been cruelly banished from their rightful National Veterans Home and denied safe shelter and proper health care.
In Harm’s Way
The recent 5-4 ruling of U.S. Supreme Court Justices has ordered that facilities within California’s State prison system are overcrowded and unfit for decent care; therefore, more than 33,000 criminals need to be transferred to better facilities or released back into the same society they harmed.
On the other hand, at the Los Angeles National Veterans Home, the largest VA facility in the nation, there are 11 “vacant” buildings, a wealthy-kids’ private playground, a public dog park, a public golf course, a public botanical garden, a college baseball diamond, public entertainment theaters, used car storage lots, etc., while 20,000 of America’s Military Veterans, many who are disabled from defending our nation’s safety, are exiled and remain homeless and hungry.
Tragically, these dispossessed Veterans are forced to live on the dangerous streets of Los Angeles. Even worse, they will now have to face even more danger and harm with a surge of criminal thugs preying on them, beating or killing them over what little possessions they may have.
A Congressional / FBI Investigation
Wake up America! It’s time to demand a no-nonsense Congressional Investigation into the West Los Angeles VA’s malfeasance as well as an FBI Investigation into the actions and dealings of manipulative and coercive neighborhood leaders and the politicians who have aided and abetted in the misappropriation of Veterans sacred land that has forced thousands of disadvantaged Veterans to
become homeless. These are very serious crimes; they must be investigated and the culprits must be prosecuted. .
A Major Lawsuit
The Congressional and FBI Investigations need to be backed up by a major lawsuit against the VA and its corrupt bureaucrats for malfeasance, mismanagement and breach of fiduciary duty, and then march it all the way to the Supreme Court and see if these Judges will show the same compassion for dispossessed and disadvantaged Military Veterans as they do for ruthless, criminal thugs.
Time to Become America Again
“We the People” must demand that our U.S. Government immediately fulfill its moral and patriotic responsibility of looking out for the best interests of America’s Military Veterans.
Accordingly, we need to demand the recovery and reclamation of the misappropriated property at the Los Angeles National Veterans Home. Then, demand the demolition of all obsolete and dysfunctional facilities.
Next, we need to demand that our Government build an ultra-modern “Grand Veterans Home and Gardens” with new resident towers and dining halls, beautiful and tranquil therapy gardens, a west-coast Veterans administrative headquarters, a Veterans College, and many other quality amenities necessary to provide the best of care and services for America’s Veterans.
Correspondingly, we need to implement the Veterans “Declaration of Enforcement” with its 13 Articles of non-compromising principles to uphold and enforce the Congressional Act of 1887 and the Deed of 1888 that will ensure this sacred land will be permanently maintained for America’s Veterans.
A Prayer For America
Let us pray that the men and women who defend and care for America, never defend and care for America the same way that America has defended and cared for them.
God Bless America’s Military and our Military Veterans!
