?The Game of War? WTF?
By Bob Patterson as told to Belle Starr, Outlawyer

When a physical therapist says to you "we better take a break you're turning purple", that indicates one of 2 things: you should take a break or it's time to take a selfie.

(Naturopath Note: Turmeric and also Taurine are neuroregenerative and BioPQQ is energy (mitochondrial) regenerative. Tell a Doctor would you, the nurses are aware and interested.)

Rehabilitation after a stroke makes it hard to find a scapegoat (Lawyers are terrible stenographers!) Realizing the amount of exertion it takes to make gains in the rehabilitation process has brought home one point in particular with a vengeance : the kids who were sent off to war with stirring music playing and patriotic phrases echoing in their ears, were the victims of a bait and switch because lately our physical therapists have been telling us the vets are not getting the amount of support and therapy that was implied in the stirring political speeches that were given to increase their enthusiasm for their military adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The image of them standing at attention in dress blues contrasts sharply with some images of learning how to ambulate with artificial legs

Conservatorships for profit - mills for millennials, real estate brokers and all the charlatans to make money warehousing people and they do it "ex parte"- without you (a vet in the hospital or in jail) to lose all rights and ability to control their own finances despite being able to, maybe with difficulty, make their wishes known. The ex parte situation would find a certain Harvard professor of Physics with the first name "Steve" incompetent as he can't feed himself or talk on his own without electromechanical assistance.

Bottom line, don't be surprised with an executive order, for your own good, to impose conservatorships on us all when we go to sleep (and whether you wake up is up to your conservator). " a kinder, gentler, administrative Khymer Rouge?

Hint to "THE" assignment desk @ The NYTimes : conservatorships for profits, cradle to grave care (according to what you need least) and they keep your cash. Orphans if not previously aborted, prisoners (those who don't get to learn to steal and lie in schools), disabled, elderly".sleepers and those in pharmacomaland (OH OH OH)

How many are vets? How many consigned after they are no longer commercially viable to the nightmare of a paupers' asylum where it doesn't matter if you have dementia or not, you will wish you did, so as not to go mad.

See a Patient Advocate at your local VA to get on Veterans Choice Program (Google hint choiceact) : they have to refer you out for services that cannot be supplied within 30 days at the VA hospitals and affiliates. VA Choice is a game changer for our suffering vets, we, both my intern and I, surely hope.

(Patriotic Aside: This "Summer Intern" served in The Peace Corps in Ethiopia in the eradication of smallpox. No good deed goes unpunished - benefits?)

Ads for video games are part of the deception. having legs blown off by an IED is a real life, not a digital life, experience.

(History in a Nutshell: Massacres are documented back to 5,500 BC! Google hint: Schoeneck-Kilianstaedten)

Selling the video games to kids and leading them to expect a similar level of enjoyment from deployment to a combat zone as the ultimate level of the video game is the ultimate hypocrisy.

Ads for goods that don't deliver is an american tradition, isn't it.? Breaking contracts made with citizens is a generational pastime of congressional effietes.

Advertising can be manipulative. Think of the deceptions caused by fitness training sites. For example, anyone who has dabbled with weight lifting to help with weight management knows that ads seen at the beginning of May promising to help clients to get in shape for summer at the beach are not realistic. If they really wanted to help their customers wouldn't it be more realistic to run ads between Christmas and New Year's Day urging people to commit to a program of working out at least three times per week which would probably begin to show some results about the beginning of May?

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
