If Bowe Bergdahl was truly held captive in Afghanistan for 5 years, why wasn't he used as Muslim propaganda ( as a war protester or converted American Taliban fighter for Islam) or subsequently beheaded as other American hostages? As a known deserter, why was he promoted to a (Sgt.) non-commissioned officer? Major Gen. Robert P. Ashley is a career intelligence officer who has served in numerous intelligence functions during his career to include assignments at Fort Bragg, N.C., Washington, D.C., Fort Gordon, Ga., MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., Izmir, Turkey, as well deployments to Bosnia-Herzegovina, Iraq and Afghanistan. He has held command positions at the company, battalion and brigade levels and served in senior intelligence positions with the Army Joint Special Operations Command and the U.S. Central Command. He comes to Intelligence Center of Excellence from being the senior intelligence officer in Afghanistan. http://www.svherald.com/content/news/2013/04/20/351644 Ashley was promoted from Colonel to Major General in the same three years as Bergdahl while overseeing Bergdahl’s desertion status! Coincidence? Why all the promotions for being a captive/deserter/traitor and those overseeing the episode... keeping silent and being rewarded? Just asking the Who, What and Why questions too!
Good Compromise.... as long as Big Insurance still gets its cut of the Healthcare pie to maintain their record profits for their Executives and investors....

As the New York Times observed in February 2012: “In another curious twist, insurance companies, which battled Mr. Obama over health care in 2009 and 2010, are now urging state officials to set up exchanges. They generally prefer state regulation, and they stand to gain because the United States Treasury will send subsidy payments directly to insurers on behalf of low-and moderate-income people who enroll in health plans offered through an exchange.” Hey, what a deal! It affords a guarantee of perpetual business on the government dole. There should be little wonder then why Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts which played a central role in the passage of RomneyCare filed an amicus brief in support of the law. The organization claimed that it “remains firmly committed to the 2006 health care reform and the individual mandate, and believes that the closely related reforms enacted by Congress in 2010 will further advance economic and social goals.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pg7xhTyOtAk Bill Moyers on Max Baucus and Senate health insurance reform bill + Forbes Analysis http://www.forbes.com/sites/larrybell/2013/11/19/insurers-who-slept-in-the-white-house-must-now-make-their-own-beds/?utm_source=followingweekly&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20131125
Alexis de Tocqueville once said, “The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.” “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money” Alexis de Tocqueville "Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him, better take a closer look at the American Indian." - Henry Ford

No one says anything about age discrimination....Why? if you are over 50 and have been downsized, outsourced, merged and/or acquired by another company, your chances of getting comparable employment is zero.... regardless of your experience and/or education!

Very well said.... and in a simple paragraph! The question is, who do we trust and who do we believe?

Thank You Thomas for your inciteful wisdom. Packing the Judicial system with Progressive/Liberal Federal justice appointees is our immediate challenge. If the People's referendums and State rights do not prevail, our Republic will be lost... unless we can call a Constitutional Convention. Michigan has given us a 2/3rd's Majority to go forward. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/04/02/rare-option-forcing-congress-to-meet-change-constitution-gains-momentum/
