Well it's official now.

The VA is definitely trying to kill me, they are going to force me to take synthriod despite the fact I'm deathly allergic to it... and when i take it the soft tissues of my eyes and throat have ALWAYS swelled shut. But despite this, the endocrinologist says that it's physically impossible for a human to be allergic to said drug without EVER HAVEN SEEN ME. This isn't the First time they've done this... they have repeatedly sent me meds that they knew i was deathly allergic to in the past. this is what happens in socialist healthcare systems where the 'norm' for the majority of people is all that matters, so those of you who are stupid enough to think Obamacare is so wonderful, you need to realize that there are 300 million American Citizens (not counting the illegals who are required by law to treat) and just so many doctors so the rationing of care is the only way they can treat that many people. Even in the UK, they are rationing care, and news reports of patients dying of starvation and thirst while in a hospital is commonplace... so shit like this is gonna happen to you as well as the system becomes more and more overburdened. and Obamacare does NOTHING to fix the problems in this country... what would have fixed it, would to have opened up Health Insurance to be sold over state lines to allow competition between the various companies. And if my accident had happened today, i'd either be dead or have no legs since the Obamacare legislation directly says that the doctors would not be legally allowed to use an experimental procedure to safe a life.

Not only that, the weaponization of the VA, or any other governmental agencies for that matter, is so damn easy there aren't words that can explain it. We don't have any way to protect ourselves form this anymore, since even the rule of law no longer has any meanings now.

AH Map - Third Reich (German-Austria)
One of my first attempts at drawing a map... still not pleased with it. but it's a start!

Alternate History Scenario: The United States never entered World War One, thus a much different outcome that included the deportation of Hitler after his failed coup in Munich, and the rise of Fascism in Italy, Spain, France and Austria that creates a different lead up to World War Two.

Outer Right knee... the doctors used tables to close it up when they rebuild my knee. Man I hated stables.

I am a Disabled American Veteran, who has been drawing since i was two years old... after a fatal accident (a long story where I died, and crawled back despite the injuries to my body, heart and mind) my artwork suffered greatly, but just as i pushed myself to walk again when the doctors said that the reattached legs wouldn't support such a thing... every step hurts. but no matter how badly you get hit, you always get back up.

Thank you for the watch! I would also like to thank you for your service and for the sacrifice you made for people like me. Words cannot express my gratitude for what you and many before you have done. To show my appreciation I would like to draw something for you. It's the least I can do. Let me know what you would like me to draw!

thank you for your kind words Joe, i mean that from the bottom of my heart, it took me a few days to write this without tears. that's how deeply your kindness touched me... but even now, i'm still a little watery eyed. the one thing about Deviant Art that has gone a long way to helping me come out of the shadows i've been hiding in since being crippled and thrown away by my wife. so many kind people have talked with me, been grateful for what I have done in the past. as i have said meany times, i served because i loved others more than i love myself... and to me it wasn't a sacrifice. But me just doing what i felt was right. and if i could, i'd still be doing it... because keeping people safe is just a part of my nature. if you really want to draw something for me, could you take a look at Freedom Eagle and see if you can help me polish her look? i have such a hard time with drawing her wings.. and i really need to figure out how to make them look. thank you for your kindness.

You sound like a hero and a common-sense American. Though, as I like to call it, un-common sense.

Thank you for your kind words. :) I don't see myself as a hero since everything i've done any one else could have done it, all of it has just been me just trying to do the right thing. To be the best Human being that i can be. :)
