Members Handbook: The Rules, or just a Guide?

Mac finally got his new phone working, and his old number ported over to it. He called me to day and we talked about a lot of stuff.  One of the things I was shocked to hear about was that the administration of this place doesn't think Members should know what is in the member handbook. At least that is what it seems to be telling us.

Mac, who was kicked out on the 10th of October for his first offense, told me that just a week or so prior, new handbooks came out for the members. And that if a member wanted one, they had to go sign for it.

Sign for it? If the information is critical, and the member should know what is in it, then shouldn't the administration issue copies to each member?

Is this "members handbook" a guide, or the rule? If it is the rule then every Veteran at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans has a inherent right to know what is in the booklet, and should have been issued a copy of the latest edition, IF what is inside is what the administration was going to operate by.

But as we all know, this administration does what it wants, to whom it wants because it has no consistent policy enforcement. Nor has it ever been held accountable for its actions.

I hate to say this.. but it is now quite clear to me, Michigan will be the second State of the Union, (following California) who will be admitting that it cannot or will not care for its Veterans.

Shame on us all.
