The U.S. needs to treat it’s war veterans better. I’m watching a CNN story about the VA hospital in Miami that put thousands of veterans at risk for HIV and hepatitis by not properly cleaning water pumps used in colonoscopies. I’m no medical expert…but to me, that sounds like something that was up people’s stankin’ asses was stuck up other people’s stankin’ asses with no regard for individual asshole well-being!
All doo-doo butt jokes aside, this is horrible, unacceptable treatment for soldiers who fought for our country. The United States has a really sad history of not properly caring for it’s veterans after they’ve spent time in some of the most extreme and traumatic circumstances imaginable. I live not too far from Walter Reed, and I’ve gotten used to reading messed up articles about that place and seeing protesters outside. Not that the good done by hospitals like these is taken for granted…It’s just that if anyone has earned the right to first-class, top of the line treatment, it’s veterans.
I’m getting off my soapbox now, but if there is one lesson to be learned from this(other than take care of our vets), it’s to make sure that you tell your doctor to double-check the cleanliness of any ass-related instruments! Even if you have to bring in a briefcase with rubbing alcohol, Purell hand sanitizer, Febreeze, Lysol and some Flintstone Vitamins, do what you gotta do. It’s better to have an insulted doctor than an infected butthole!
