Doing Vets Dirty…Literally!

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!

    I’m grateful to be an Iraq War veteren who didn’t get blown the fuck up or worse while I was over there. They surely do shit on you when you least need it.

    On a side note, you would not believe the number of shots and pills I’ve had to take since I’ve joined the military. I guess we’re Guinea Pigs for if certain things can be used in civilian applications. All I gotta say is these folks are shady sometimes, whether your healthy or sick.

    Hell I been trying to set up an eye appointment for over two months at a military facility and I haven’t gotten one yet, something ain’t right.

    I definitely have a bone to pick with the VA. My dad went to them after he fell ill on his return from a trip to Haiti. They told him that he was battling the flu and he was sent home. A few days later he passed, and during his autopsy, It was discovered that he in fact had Malaria and NOT Influenza.
