Obama pushes new veteran education executive order
Politico44 ^ | 4/27/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 04/27/2012 11:30:37 AM PDT by ColdOne

"But as some of your comrades have discovered, sometimes you are dealing with folks who aren't interested in helping you," Obama said — recounting the "appalling" recruiting practices of some schools that have gone so far as to enroll brain damaged veterans.

"The executive order I"m about to sign will make life a whole lot secure for you," Obama said. "And a whole lot tougher for those who want to pray on you."

The details of the executive order, announced Thursday night, include provisions designed to give veterans more information about student loans, cracks down on online and on-base recruitment and gives veterans a path to file complaints.

Yet the Veterans Administration refuses to put veterans first in their procurement process.

“...who want to pray (sic) on you.”

Seriously? From Politico?

“cracks down on online and on-base recruitment “

So it makes it harder for veterans to figure out their educational opportunities??

“But as some of your comrades have discovered, ......

“The executive order I’m about to sign will make life a whole lot secure for you,” Obama said. “And a whole lot tougher for those who want to pray on you.”

‘Comrades!’ cried an eager youthful voice. ‘Attention, comrades!
We have glorious news for you. Big Bro’ has spoken! Let it be writ! Let it be done! Stinking skunks and jackals, running holy hyenas and religo-vultures will no longer pray over our retired comrades. We have won the battle!
All over Amerika this morning there were irrepressible spontaneous demonstrations when veterans marched out of factories and offices and paraded through the streets with banners voicing their gratitude to Big Bro’ for the new, happy life which his wise leadership has bestowed upon us.

Ha ha ha ha. Silly serf, laws are for the little people.

Now back to the article: What the hell kind of Kenyan commie English is this? will make life a whole lot secure for you

And a whole lot tougher for those who want to pray on you.Is this a stealth Tebow ban? Or is preying reserved for corpse-men.

I'm not big on being a grammar copy but this is from the Pres__ent. The Ineptocracy is running rampant lately.

“And a whole lot tougher for those who want to pray on you.”

"recounting the "appalling" recruiting practices of some schools that have gone so far as to enroll brain damaged veterans. "

Is it that the veterans are so brain damaged that they don't know what they are enrolling for.

Or does Obama just not want brain damaged veterans to excercise their brains with schooling?

“The executive order I”m about to sign will make life a whole lot secure for you,” Obama said. “And a whole lot tougher for those who want to pray on you.”

Is that anything like ‘Prey on you’?

This entire paragraph is bizarre. I”m? A whole lot secure? Pray on you?

I would assume so, but it is an interesting freudian slip.

Perhaps I have too much faith in our military, but I cannot see that they will be hopelessly swayed by his pandering.

Yes, it is so darn appalling that a college accepted my “brain damaged” warrior hubby. /sarc

As for the student loan thing...I don’t know of any soldiers who needed to take out loans, especially not ones who have returned from war “less than whole”.

I guess he just wants to throw our wounded soldiers out with the trash.
