Some of the main issues facing today’s Veterans shocked me a lot. Veteran unemployment is nearly twice the national average. There is a backlog of 1.2 million claims at the Veterans Administration. A third of all homeless citizens in America are Veterans. Is it ok?

Not to worry, they have great health care from what I hear.

No, it's not okay. This nation has traditionally done poorly in helping our vets. Most of the veteran problems you've noted are mental health issues. The suicide rate of vets is much higher than those who never served. Oddly, according to the study below, it's mostly the older vets who are taking their lives, not the younger

Where are the jobs? Why isn't obama bringing the sunny new day he promised?

It's not government's job to create jobs. That's a left wing myth.

That is because this nation doesn't care about veterans. If they did, none of this would be happening because 314 million Americans would be up in arms in near-revolt. But instead, the 1% of us that served are left out to deal with it ourselves. If you really want to get civilians' attention, turn their TV off and stop their welfare. I found it amazing that no one bats a fucking eye about veterans--who have actually earned their benefits--having to wait over a year for treatment and compensation, but one fucking day of food stamps not working and everyone loses their god danged mind. Shows where the priorities in this nation are.

Of course not.

Government cannot create jobs; but it can damn-sure DESTROY them, or prevent them from being created.

Which is what economically-astute critics are angry at him and his for.

Vets have put their lives on the line and they deserve much better. There should be people going to jail, not getting bonuses. Look out, obamacare will be just as bad.
