Coming from a multi-generational military family, he is absolutely right that this is not enough. I don’t like unions or the way they do business but I do know from a Veterans perspective, you cannot support your family like this and the psychological impact will be more detrimental to go into an unskilled, menial job, causing more strain within the family unit as a whole. When a service man/woman enlist, they are made promises of things the VA will provide to them for their total sacrifice to the Armed Forces. When a service man/woman gets to the end of their service and attempt to access those things that were promised to them, they are refused and rejected by the very system that made those promises. Do you know that all the VA clinics have armed guards in them “for the safety of the staff.” The reason they have to “protect the staff” is because the Veterans are put-off, ignored and demeaned when they attempt to access services. Is this the best America can do? Is this how we honor the promises made? I love Walmart but wake up. The wives of POTUS and VPOTUS need to make a REAL effort to partner with employers that can offer decent paying jobs with benefits where the Veterans education, skills and experience can better be utilized. I believe our government has been attempting to indoctrinate America using the model of the Peter Principle and having our Veterans working at Walmart clearly perpetuates the dumbing down of America.

You’re right. It doesn’t say “no” celebration. It says “excessive celebration.” Tell me how a finger point is excessive? It’s not like it was his middle finger. People need to get a grip!

If the playhouse has to be taken down, it is the father’s fault. He was told when he started it that he couldn’t do that. Ignorance is no excuse to do what you want. I am from Ocala and have lived in the historic district and what kind of idiot does not look into what is acceptable in a neighborhood BEFORE you lay your money down. Let’s hear it for personal accountability and the lack thereof this couple is teaching their child.
