Tony Cartalucci - Just a Lousy Journalist? His writing focuses on the International dimension; the foreign interference in Thailand. While there is no doubt that no nation is an island and foreign groups with their own agendas interfere in all nations for their own personal ends, Tony has been very selective in which foreign groups he writes on, what their intentions are and who they work with in Thailand. I write now to expose some of the glaring omissions he has purposefully made and encourage you to ask; What groups does this foreigner in Thailand belong to and what is his agenda?
On that date, President Franklin Roosevelt signed into law P. This massive program, more than any other program save the interstate highway system, would shape and define postwar America.
The bill was begun under the shadow of tragedy. It was important for a nation as militarized as the United States during World War II to readjust to a civilian economy as quickly and painlessly as possible. Furthermore, returning veterans needed, if not deserved, government support in the often brutal readjustment to civilian life.
The bill contained three important programs. The most famous of these was its education program: For many returning soldiers, it was the first, and only chance, to get a college or university education.
This led to an academic flowering in postwar America, creating some of the most important minds at our service. Engineers, scientists, doctors, lawyers, politicians, judges, and even actors and directors were created thanks to the largesse of the GI Bill. An important note, the bill provided that the government reimburse colleges directly.
This led to universities hiking tuition bills to Washington, widely perceived as tuition fraud. Sincethe education program consists of stipends paid directly to veterans for their expenses. Returning veterans were entitled to low-interest, zero-down payment loans for homes and businesses—an unthinkable prospect today considering the cause of our current economic woes.
For the first time, veterans can buy a home for their families and start businesses with help from Uncle Sam.
From to2. The last provision is notable not for its use, but for its lack of use. Remarkably, less than 20 percent of returning servicemen opted for this program, as most already found employment or used their GI benefits in higher education.
Korean War and Vietnam veterans made even more use of their GI benefits: The new program greatly expanded previous endeavors, especially in regards to education. It provides free education to any public college in the state that a veteran resides.
Even for a fiscal conservative like me, the GI Bill was, and continues to be, an important element not just for American education and economics, but also as a measure of our values.
Some opponents of these bills use the same argument for welfare reform. Handouts induce indolence, laziness, and dependence on government benefits. This is not any other population. Believe me, they worked for those benefits.
For centuries, the battlefield soldier was cannon fodder, often literally.
After the smoke cleared and the army disbanded, a veteran had no options other than to pick up the pieces of his life. Often, the long absence and horrors of combat were so unbearable that a former soldier could never function in society as he did before—and no one was there to help.
Yet here, we saw things differently. I have yet to see another country devote so much of its public funds to the support and readjustment of its former defenders. The United States, for better or worse, is a country derived from the blood of its veterans.James Michener as a child.
