This guy makes me ill. Attacking vets with PTSD?

"Michael Savage recently launched into a fiery rant against those who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, arguing that the "celebration of weakness and depression" has undermined the United States and its military."

Vets deserve and have earned everything they get. No one in the military "celebrates weakness and depression" that I know about.

This kind of blaming of vets is disgusting.

    The ultimate responsibility for PTSD is squarely upon the politicians who put the members of our military in harms way.

    I agree totally.

    The vets should get the best of care; be it physical, mental, emotional, spiritual or psychological. They have EARNED it.

    I do not know much about him, but it is reported he has never served in the military.

    To believe that that the numbers that are coming back and claiming disability are all legitimate is ignorant. All must be vetted and those looking for a free pass must be weeded out.
    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.

    As with any human system there will be people who try to defraud and cheat.

    However, I believe that number is very small and there is already a very rigorous system to assess claims (I worked for the VA for 7+ years as an RN) In my opinion, there are many more vets who are deserving and have earned benefits which are being DENIED than there are those who are trying to cheat.

    And I do believe all vets have earned our thanks for their service.
