“The Art of Fighting without Fighting”

All you movie buffs out here will recognize the line above from Bruce Lee’s epic, “Enter the Dragon.”  Bruce Lee, John Saxon and Jim Kelly’s characters had just flown to Hong Kong and boarded the ship headed to Mr. Han’s Island for the world’s greatest karate tournament and fights.  Anyway, Bruce Lee is challenged by a bully to fight on the ship.  His challenger asks, “What is your style anyway,” to which Bruce responds, “The Art of Fighting without Fighting.”

So how do we fight injustice like the VA’s Senior Procurement Executive, Mr. Jan R. Frye’s arbitrary and capricious abuse of power in totally ignoring and disobeying Public Law 109-461?  Apparently Mr. Frye thinks he is above the law.  Others have wrongly believed they were above the law, only to find they are not.  The question is what are we going to do about this abuse of power and the crushing impact it has on the “Veterans First Contracting Program” at VA?  Allow me to suggest that we use “The Art of Fighting without Fighting.”

We have elected officials that represent us!  They have the power, the means and the access to quickly influence, change or stop this kind of non-sense.  Since none of us can directly take on Mr. Frye and his anti-Veteran actions, let’s allow our elected officials to work on our behalf.  Allow them an opportunity to earn their pay.  Allow them an opportunity to show us why they should continue to receive our votes.  Give them a call, write them a letter, send them an email or whatever you have to do to, but do something to make them understand your displeasure with these events.  This kind of behavior is totally unacceptable, especially from a fellow Veteran.


See you on the high ground!
