I am a service-connected disabled veteran and use the Veterans Administration as my primary source of health care.
For the most part, the VA has done me well. I have mostly had excellent physicians and health care professionals attending to me. And I have been grateful to the VA for the care I have received.
But I have also been watching my level of care deteriorate.
And it is deteriorating because of liberalism.
This week is a marvelous example.
As a service-connected veteran with injuries to both knees and both shoulders, I have a significant level of pain to deal with. I am prescribed oxycodone for my pain. And of course that is a Schedule II drug that requires extra-level monitoring.
I have never ONCE been convicted for any kind of substance abuse. I have never ONCE been arrested for any kind of substance abuse. I have never ONCE ever even been ACCUSED of any kind of substance abuse.
But, you know, some people have abused their oxycodone.
So let’s treat EVERYONE like a drug abuser.
I got a phone call this week and was commanded to submit a urine sample for a drug test within two weeks of receiving the call. I’m going in today and I am pissed off about it.
Oh, if I were a welfare-sucking parasite, I wouldn’t have to submit to a drug test. I mean, they tried to do that in one state and the unholy rabid frothing-at-the-mouth fury on the part of liberals squashed that pretty fast. I mean, how DARE you insinuate that people might not be getting jobs because they’re abusing drugs, you RACIST!
But it’s perfectly okay to accuse us veterans who fought for your right to be a depraved jackass of being a drug abuser, isn’t it, Democrat?
Thanks to Führer Obama, I get to deal with that insinuation about four times a year. I was tested in November. The fact that there wasn’t so much as a trace of a contraband cream puff in my system doesn’t absolve me. Because where Democrats are involved, the last thing that matters is “facts.”
But I’m not done.
I just had shoulder surgery for my left shoulder. And I’ve been having physical therapy on a schedule of three times a week, followed by two times a week, followed by three times a week, followed by two times a week, etc. Well, I had a setback when I strained myself. The physical therapist and the surgeon saw me and told me I needed to miss about a week plus and heal up.
So I just came back, and during that week plus I’d missed, the physical therapy department changed their scheduling policy. You see, some veterans aren’t showing up for their appointments, and it cost the system money when people don’t show up for their appointments and leave medical professionals twiddling their thumbs when they could be treating patients.
So does the VA go after the patients who aren’t showing up for their appointments? Of course not. That would make as much sense as going after the actual MUSLIMS who are doing all the actual TERRORISM. So instead, they have to treat EVERYONE like a terrorist, or in this case an appointment-abusing no-shower.
It doesn’t matter that I have NEVER missed a VA appointment in my entire life.
Now I have to get ONE appointment per visit. The therapist has to spend one-fifth of each appointment writing the paperwork so I can get my next appointment. And now suddenly I can’t GET two or three appointments a week anymore; nope, I’m lucky to get ONE. And my recovery is going to suffer as a result.
So because Democrats are running the bureaucracies, we ALL get treated like terrorists. Whether we’re 95 year-old nuns in our walkers slowly making our way through the airport or service-connected veterans who never once missed an appointment (or abused drugs). We ALL get treated like terrorists who did something wrong by these power-grabbing dictators.
What is liberalism? Liberalism is the belief that everybody is “good” while society is “evil” and must be reformed and then “fundamentally transformed,” and so on the one hand they refuse to hold perpetrators responsible for their crimes or their behavior because it’s SOCIETY that is to blame, right? So we ALL get treated like farm animals while your Hillary Clintons are running around exempting themselves from the laws and regulations and policies that they impose on everybody else.
It would make sense to single out the abusers – whether the drug abusers or the appointment abusers – but Democrats are vile, wicked, depraved people who won’t be held accountable and won’t allow anyone else to be held accountable. And add to that that Democrats are fascists who want to have total dictatorial control of every system of government. And you get the perfect storm of me having my health care ruined because the system won’t hold the people who are screwing up accountable for being the ones who are actually screwing up.
Especially if they’re welfare-sucking parasites, for the record.
It’s the same thing with guns, and that’s going on right now, too. Obama just tried to do one of his innumerable end-runs around the Constitution by banning ammunition for certain types of guns he doesn’t like. It doesn’t matter if we have a right to those guns because Obama is a fascist and we have the rights Obama says we have and we’re racist if we think we have the rights the Constitution says we have. In California and other states, Democrats are releasing criminals from prison at a record rate much the way Obama has released terrorists from Gitmo at a record rate (because the fact that I should be treated like a terrorist in any airport in America doesn’t apparently mean that actual TERRORISTS should be treated like terrorist, right?). And this goes back decades, when during the 1960s Democrats declared that it was wrong to commit crazy people against their will and that the nutjobs who voted Democrat had RIGHTS, dammit. And so Democrats made it impossible to deal with mentally ill people in America.
And now they demand that we ALL be treated like criminals and nutjobs as a result, and that we ALL have our right to keep and bear arms stripped away from us.
“Democrat” stands for “DEpraved deMOnic bureauCRAT.” And they have “fundamentally transformed the United States of America” into something truly pathetic and truly despicable.
Now, excuse me. I’ve got to go pee in a cup. I’d have a Democrat take the test for me, but you know I’d fail my drug test given the fact that these same hypocrite liberals who are making me take this damn drug test are trying to get the very drugs that I’m being tested for legalized in state after state.
Especially if they’re welfare sucking parasites.
