    Concussion hearing.
    All right.
    Why don't they have a hearing about those poor souls in Philly and what kind of reform is needed for the mentally challenged who are in desperate need of competent supervision?

    And please, please please throw LL in jail...please!

      The President is promoting hiring of veterans, because they have served their (our) country, and sometimes it's hard for them to get hired. Let's face it some employers don't want to hire someone who may now be handicapped. Some of these men and women my find a lot of doors closed on them and the President is only trying to assist to open the doors, which he should do. And yes I am a vet, so to all of my fellow vets HAPPY VETERANS DAY 11-11-11.

    Hi.
    I used the same word, "competent," regarding such supervision on the other thread.

    Bring all the troops home. 150 Soldiers that will be left behind to work Foreign Military Sales for US Embassy in Iraq are being told there is no living space for them at the Embassy. Send the Soldiers home and let the 15,000+ civilians living at the Embassy work Foreign Military Sales to Iraq. Military Families have sacrificed enough!
