Former Secretary of the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, Eric Shinseki, has resigned. The treatment of this man by the Congress and the President is unacceptable. His resignation will do nothing to solve the VA's problems. General (retired) Shinseki is a 4 star general and a former Chief of Staff of the Army. Our generals and admirals are far better people than most members of Congress and the executive branch. Shame on the politicians for persecuting such a decent man.
Thought?

You're right, he's just a convenient sacrifice to throw on the altar. The bottom line is that the two wars we started post 9/11 have created a massive demand for veteran medical care, and America's most powerful men have never legitimately cared about the well being of veterans or soldiers. They're simply a commodity to be used.

You never had to work under his command. I was at the Pentagon while he was deputy chief of Staff, Operations and Plans for the Army. Talk about a lack of coherence of command!

I smell a skunk. Obama repeal didn't work.
Benghazi gate is a waste of time
gun walker false flag didnt work
IRS gate didn't work
80+ months of slander, co*kblocking obstructionism didn't work

Everything these zero integrity Conservatives have been fabricating to drag Obama through the mud has not worked

Even Karl Rove and the Romney boys trying to rig the Ohio ballot didnt work

Now VA gate.

And every bit of it because these whiners cannot accept that they are getting thrashed.

And still they are trying to steal elections.

they have co-conspirators in the form of our fifth column of moneymen, as well as durable legions of low-information voters who consistently vote against their own economic interests just to stick it to people they don't like.

...and I still wonder what connection Fox News has to McDonalds and how much bonus the typical McDonalds manager gets paid to blast the Fox News propaganda machine into the ears of little toddlers all day long.

I was working as a contractor in the Information Management Support Office, Deputy Chief of Staff, Operations and Plans (DCSOPS) for the U.S. Army when Shinseki was the DCSOPS. I never saw any coordination between Shinsecki, Gen. Otto Gunther, the head of DISC4, or between DCSOPS, DCSINT, DCSLOG, and DISC4. My assigned duty was as an information architect. The information architecture group was responsible to documenting the layout of the LAN within DCSOPS, was well as the WAN between the DCSOPS offices at The Pentagon, Ft. Belvoir and Ft. Leavenworth. We were also responsible for specifying what hardware and software were to be deployed within DCSOPS, as well as DMS. We were also tasked to report on any type of new technologies that would be of use to DCSOPS.

In addition, I was tasked to investigate systems to archive all data on DCSOPS servers and workstations, as required by the National Archives and Records Administration.

Additionally, I was tasked to maintain a database of any and all Year 2000 issues that would affect the daily operation of DCSOPS, as well as any and all security issues with Windows NT4.

Where I ran into trouble with DCSOPS was with Year 2000. DISC4 was responsible maintaining that database. Whenever an issue would come up on whether this item needed to be reported, I would call on DISC4 for clarification. Every time I called DISC4 for further guidance, I would get a completely different answer on what to report. When I would call someone else within DSCOPS and IMSO, I would get nothing but silence. It got to the point where I sat down with my supervisor (she who would later betray me to DISC4, IMSO and ALL of their vendors) and made the decision to report everything in this database. Well, as Y2K compliance began to wind down, this stupid ass Aspie caught hell from every one in DCSOPS and DISC4 for reporting everything, when the only thing DISC4 wanted was any and all hardware that could not be made ready for Y2K.

There's a lot more bullsh*t that went on in that office I got blamed for, where I could not get any kind of guidance, but I won't bore you with the details.

Read the start of my reply again. I was employed as a civilian contractor. I came to that job straight from the GPS program office at Naval Research and Development Division Detachment--Warminster, PA.

No problem. With my health as bad as it is (type 2 diabetes, as well as hypertension and high cholesterol, in addition to anxiety, bipolar I and ASD), you can understand now why I no longer seek work in any government entity. Upon looking back, I'm glad I never got the position at EPA. Of course 9/11 had a lot to do with that, as I was supposed to interview at EPA on 9/11/2001.
