Regarding veteran suicides, PTSD, and disability: We spoke in person with the VA reps and psychologists at the PTSD Symposium. They know about he stigma and backlog of paying benefits. Currently they are working on WW II Veteran payments and over 900,000 benefits (we’re talking millions of dollars here) went to widows and family instead of the vet. There is not enough money or personnel to handle all the veterans requesting benefits. Videos with exact numbers coming. I have to cut down the length from 8 hours to each segment discussed with Q&A Each video segment is taking 3 hours to load. This is going to take all day to do each speaker. There are 3 speakers to panel 1. We are uploading speaker 1 of panel 1 today. There are 5 speakers to panel 2. 4 speakers to panel 3. and panel 4 is incomplete due to the fact our 32 gb card was full by that point. We have only 1 speaker to panel 4 out of 4. I think. What an undertaking, but this will help all Veterans and caregivers. http://lnkd.in/ye7Fep First 3 videos are the opening intros. They are being uploaded to http://www.youtube.com/veteranrescue right now. It will take 3 hours to complete.

Flanked by veterans advocates, President Obama signed the bill into law this morning. The “VOW to Hire Heroes Act” will provide tax credits of up to $2,400 for employers who hire veterans who have been unemployed at least 4 weeks; up to $5,600 for hiring veterans who have been unemployed longer than 6 months; and up to $9,600 for businesses that hire veterans who have service-connected disabilities and have been unemployed longer than 6 months. Though the unemployment rate among veterans of all ages is actually lower than the overall population, the rate is high among veterans of the current wars, standing at 12 percent, compared with about 9 percent for the population at large. The higher rate is driven largely by widespread joblessness among veterans under 25 years old, whose unemployment rate was 30 percent last month. There has long been debate among economists over whether tax credits actually create jobs, or simply reward businesses for hiring people that they would have hired anyway. In theAtlantic.com, Daniel Indiviglio wrote recently that the tax credits might create at most a few new jobs, but that they were mainly likely to encourage the hiring of veterans over nonveterans when their qualifications are similar. “Few employers will create new jobs from scratch just to try to bring on more veterans and obtain the credit,” Mr. Indiviglio wrote. But Mr. Indiviglio also asserted that shifting the proportion of new hires toward veterans would be a good thing by helping to correct what he called “a grave injustice.” “If these brave men and women chose not to fight for their country but merely remained civilians instead years ago, then many would more likely be employed today,” he said. That sentiment seems to be shared across ideological lines on Capitol Hill and in many business circles right now. An editorial on Bloomberg.com last week, for instance, made the case that even if the tax credits do not stimulate the economy or create new jobs, they are morally the right thing to do. “We have no illusion that these credits are going to create lots of new jobs,” the editorial said. “But they will encourage employers to favor veterans when hiring. In a robust, growing economy, that might be an unnecessary accommodation to returning military personnel. However, after a decade of brutal warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan, where fighting men and women have served grueling multiple deployments, it seems a small and entirely just recompense.” On a White House blog, a Marine Corps veteran, Justin Constantine, wrote on Monday that the tax credits were not “an overall panacea to our veterans’ unemployment problems,” but when combined with other measures, might at least make a dent in the unemployment rate. “Unfortunately, our youngest veterans are entering the private workforce at a very challenging time,” Mr. Constantine wrote. “Many of them are likely to be employed in industries such as construction, manufacturing and transportation, which have all struggled in the last few years. Further, many of these vets come from and return to rural parts of the country, and do not have the benefit of a college degree. Another critical issue is that there currently does not exist a truly effective and cohesive transition assistance program for them. And on top of all that, a staggering number of our returning service members suffer from behavioral health issues, including Post Traumatic Stress, but these issues are not being adequately addressed.” Similarly, Peter Kramer, author of Listening to Prozac, said on NYTimes.com’s Room for Debate on Monday that reducing joblessness among veterans might combat their high suicide rate. The new tax credits, he says, are “a step in the right direction.” “Study after study correlates unemployment with suicidality,” Dr. Kramer wrote. “The workplace can be stressful, but especially for the mentally vulnerable, there is no substitute for what jobs offer in the way of structure, support and meaning.” Still, the bipartisan support for the Hire Heroes Act underscores another truism of Washington politics: Congress loves tax credits, which are an easy way to show concern for large or politically potent voting blocs. In the Washington Post earlier this month, Steve Bell, senior director of the economic policy project of the Bipartisan Policy Center, called it “ironic” and “incongruous” that both parties would get behind new tax credits amid the emerging national debate over tax simplification. “Tax entitlement reform will be tougher than direct spending entitlement reform,” he said.

Hello to all my new followers and supporters!! Thank you and God Bless you!!
I get asked a lot of why I do what I do: Ms. Hubbard was raised on a small ten acre farm in the woods of Brooksville, Florida, with lots of animals. She actively cared for a variety of pets since she was a small child. These early experiences impacted her in a profound way. Later, she noticed a distinct lack of animal care in her area when owners traveled on vacation. The owners often boarded thei r pets with a vet, typically in cages. Wildcat asked, “Who wants to stay in a cage all day?” The answer – No one! She has handled horses, rabbits, ferrets, cats, dogs, birds, hamsters and gerbils. Years ago, Christi discovered an ability to catch and hold any animal whether feral or domestic, regardless of bites and claws. She’s also hand raised animal babies that were abandoned, sick or just taken too soon from their mother to ensure their health and well being. Her love of animals is partially the reason she earned the moniker “Wildcat”. She also showed the tenacity of a wild cat in her fighting techniques during her police academy training, so “Wildcat” was a natural fit. Throughout her adult life, Ms. Hubbard has gained a lot of different understanding through a lot of diverse work experiences. Ms. Hubbard has worked in Law Enforcement, and has two associates degree, one in Law Enforcement and the other in Criminology. She has earned multiple certificates and gathered a long line of military connections, which include her dad, a Marine, her nephew in the Air Force, a cousin and brother in law both in the Army. A father in law also retired from the Navy. Wildcat Hubbard worked for three years for the local Sheriffs office. For fifteen years, she worked as a receptionist, then two years as a teller. After that, she spent five years in security. She’s also done house and pet sitting and volunteering.
Today was scrub day. Take apart Bunny living area I'm babysitting and scrub it all clean. Take out 6 bags of trash. Unload, reload, and turn on dishwasher, scoop all kitty litters I'm babysitting them too, feed some mice, keep an eye on everything, oh and have breakfast. I've been up since 4 am. I'm ready for lunch. I already reduced my prices and changed my websites and Facebook business pages too. What are you doing today?
