Disabled Vets and what our President thinks of us.

The earlier blog post with the title "Disabled Vets and what our President thinks of us." is based on false information. The quote that Ramon D. Mireles attributed to President Obama was created by comedian Jon Stewart on Comedy Central, and the words were NEVER UTTERED by Our President and Commander-in-Chief.  Ramon should have checked his sources before posting this politically motivated falsehood.
