What it really does is to allow all the Feds to track vets online, to track them at home, at work and to pick them up for psych evals at any given time, especially if they seem to be gaining traction in sending messages of dissent against the Obama regime.

Yeah, Veterans’ mental health is SO IMPORTANT to Obama, that he concocts this EO 2 months out from election day.

What a phony creep.

The VA already has lots of mental support available right now. When calling to the local VA clinic, their options menu asks “if you are having thoughts of harming yourself right now, dial _ “.They realize that suicide is a HUGE issue.

Typical Obama pandering crap, hoping to “sequester” more dissidents under the guise of “helping” them.

Communist SOB. Straight out of the Mao handbook.

As a Vet, whatever the motivation, improvement in VA abilities to provide much needed services is not a bad thing.

He’s rounding up vets right now under phony anonymous fear statements, now he’s just allocating money to expand that ability.

Not “unexpected” like everything else these days. Barry and the ‘RATS think all military people and their families are crazy and need psychiatric help.

Getting rid of this entire sub-standard organization,the VA that is,which seems to be completely corrupt not to mention how invasive of Veterans privacy they’ve become would be a great step for this country.

Otherwise replace it with something else and launch an investigation in the people who are working there.They are doing an enormous disservice towards the taxpayer and the people who’ve served this country.

Otherwise you will never replace a decent living environment,which this country doesn’t seem able to provide in the post-Bush years,with a shrink.No matter who or what he works for.

Because the minute they avail themselves of it, their 2nd Amendment rights are terminated.

He’s the one who needs access to mental health services.

There is a hook in that. When one applies for mental health services, one loses their Second Amendment rights.

This is all BS. I work for a veterans group.

This is all going to support the bloated govt... in the name of veterans. The money goes to agencies and the contractors NOT the veterans.

Obama cut GI bill and combat compensation in 2009 and 2010...this is money that goes directly to vets and not a govt agency.

Please dont let this go on unchallenged.

The Aurora, Colorado theatre shooter was working on a team of six people developing drugs to manipulate the brains of returning combat veterans with PTSD.

Apparently they are satisfied with the test results.

As a veteran, NO Way! I recommend all veterans and active duty do NOT have anything to do with this. The left is using it as an excuse to take away our rights to own firearms. Piss off government!

The words “Executive Order” mean loss of freedom in our republic.

The current president apparently thinks he is a king, or chief in some thirdworld rathole.
