To clarify and give meaning of finger pointing directly at the NEW FUHRER give the following remarks from SENIOR CIRCUIT JUDGE of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals a big weight upon the scale of that which is fair and just. Quoting Judge SCHROEDER:
“ Let me see if I’ve got this straight: in order to be grounded
I’ve got to be crazy and I must be crazy to keep flying. But
If I ask to be grounded, that means I’m not crazy any more
And I have to keep flying “. ( Paramount Pictures 1970
Catch – 22 ). End quote
Again, quoting the Senior Judge Schroeder; “ The majority thus leaves millions of veterans — present, past, and future — without any available redress for claims that they face years of delay in having their rights to hard-earned benefits determined. No one could think this is just or what Congress intended “. End quote ( underscoring supplied )
Judge SCHROEDER ends with the following statement; “ The majority’s holding thus reduces itself to a “ CATCH – 22 “. To challenge delays in the system, you must bring a systemic claim and not just an individual claim. But if you bring a systemic claim, it has to be treated as an individual claim and you must suffer the delays in the system. GET IT ? “ DUH – say WHAT ??!! end quote
Clearly, an old adage applied here, that is, looking up the horses ass and claiming to see the light at the end of the tunnel will in the end, get you no where. However, look a gift horse in the mouth, oh well, you get it, STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES !!
For those who want or should read the Senior Judge’s dissenting opinion type into the search area; Veterans for Common Sense v. Shinseki when results page comes up choose the one – www.ca9.uscourts.gov when it loads up, scroll down to page 43 or 4867 as in the upper right hand corner there is 4-digit numbers for the pages.
How is it that a soldier of the United States serving in a combat zone for LIBERTY and JUSTICE FOR ALL, comes home, needs medical help and possible entitlements from the Veterans Benefits Administration now faces the biggest fight of his/her life over those same rights he/she fought to secure on the battlefield ??? Remember veterans, BILLIONS of DOLLARS are being ripped off from V.A. DELAY, DELAY, and ha, ha, 38 U.S.C. § 511 will protect those who take away your most basic American Right, the right to Due Process of Law.
Truly, V.A. Secretary Shinseki has become the new Fuhrer. A man of honor would speak out at a PRESS MEETING, or, submit his resignation stating he will not be part of denial of Due Process of Law for this nations veterans. This officer & a gentleman load of crap is just that, a big load. I am amazed that NOT ONE military officer spoke out against this section of law. What would they tell the troops, sorry morons, when you get out of the military there will be NOTHING for you but deprivation of those items deemed orderly in a democratic society.
