VA Night-Mare in White City,OR

I've recently had to call on the Veterans Administration for some help for a very serious health issue. 

What started out Ok I thought has turned into a night-mare. Everything from the care, to the way they do their billing is just nuts. 

Originally diagnosed with this condition in January 2012 by the Portland,OR VA

I had a biopsy done, and a radiation treatment plan put in place that was done at OHSU

Later scans confirmed that lytic leasions were spreading

Second bout of radiation was done locally in Medford, OR after another biopsy confirmed same type of cancer, different spot

Then headaches started to appear. More scans revealed lytic skull leasions and Boney leasions of the ribs and sternum. 

Chemo was recommended by my oncologist from the Portland, OR Veterans Hospital in conjunction with OHSU oncology for multiple myeloma

The Portland Veterans hospital told me that the only way to receive chemo from the VA was to drive to Portland, OR once a week for 16 weeks. 

I'm still of working age. Portland is a 500 mile round trip. Do the math on the money, down time from work, and try to do that while undergoing chemo. 

I then contacted my congressman about getting my treatmeants done locally. After a number of phone calls and letters it was authorized to be done locally, but it cost over a month in delay in my treatmeants and the lady who called me back to tell me the treatmeants had been authorized locally was a total witch on the phone towards me. Talked to me like I was a price of garbage off the street for having pushed this issue. I was shocked at the attitudes displayed towards me. She basically tried to a scould me for requesting this. 

Now I'm under the care of a local oncologist. I'm having severe pain issues in my sternum. So bad it hurts to have a bowel movement. This Dr writes me an RX for pain meds, sends it to the white City VA pharmacy to be filled. The nurse from the primary care team then tells me I need to come see the Dr at the VA before they would fill my pain pill RX rather than just filling it and it will be a week for an appointment. In the mean time the pains so bad I'm having trouble breathing

There is a real problem in the culture at the VA hospital. These people don't seem to understand who's the boss here. The bosses are the Vets not the staff of the VA

The attitude I've had displayed towards me in the last few weeks from The White City VA hospital is unacceptable. Initially I had good reviews to give to the VA, but the more serious my condition becomes, I have less and less patience for their bullshit. 

America the VA healthcare system needs to just go away and vets need to be seen by private, professional healthcare providers who know how to treat patients. I'm shocked at how poorly I've been treated in the last few weeks just trying to get much needed pain medications. I honestly don't even want to return to the VA, but I won't have a choice. 

The place is fast becoming full of freaks. Everthing from tatoos, crap hanging out of peoples faces, to just an attitude of give me my check I work at the VA and I'll treat you Vets how I think you should be treated. The place has just gotten bizzzar. The culture is that of some far off left wing society where blue hair and pixey dust are normal. 

Disgusted with the VA

KBR, Burn Pits, Vets & DOD Contractors

So if the Supreme Court does say they are immune, what happens to all of us who worked as DOD Contractors who they knowingly poisoned. The proof is everywhere in letters from Generals stating the air quality was so bad there would be long term health effects, to all the guys Vets & DOD Contractors alike now showing up sick by the thousands because of this. If you're a vet you can file a VA Claim, if you're a Contractor you can file a DBA claim and get to spend an afternoon with some high priced KBR attorney slapping you around like you're some kind of criminal. Trying to build a case that the joint you may have smoked 25yrs ago is what given you multiple myeloma. It's all about getting KBR off. It's not about the truth. I'm going to tell you the truth. 

We suffered what I consider to be four major exposures

1. The sewage pit that probably 5 or 10 acres in size, maybe bigger, maybe smaller. It's a biological super stew that is on the west end of kandahar airbase. It's 130 degrees with prevailing winds out of the west, southwest. The whole base is, was covered in dried human feces. Ever surface you touch, every breath you took you inhaled human shit. God knows what decease people had or have that troops are breathing into their lungs, touching their faces, rubbing their eyes, eating food with dust falling from the ceilings of the tents that's contaminated with human waste. It's no joke that's how it was in 2003 and I believe still is today. Just google it 

2. Bottled water contaminated with tritinuim. The EPA say it causes bone cancer. While I was there we had an incident where we were drinking off pallets of bottled water for a week or so. Then one morning we woke to find yellow caution tape around the pallets with skull & cross bones sign telling us not to drink the water it was highly radioactive. I only ever saw one little story about that in the Stars & Stripes saying that the system of randomly checking the safety of the water was working. My question is how many of those contaminated pallets of bottled water got through, considering I now have bone cancer which the EPA says can be caused by tritinuim, which is what the water was contaminated with. Go figure 

3. Depleted uranium dust from armor peircing munitions & up armor on vehicles. Uranium is radioactive. The whole dam place is a dust bowl. How many millions of those rounds were expelled? Common sense tells you the place is covered in uranium dust. We were there. We breathed the air. Now we have all kinds of weird cancers, but they have to study this problem to see if that's why thousands of us are coming up sick with cancer. 

4. Last but not least but probably the most significant contributor was and or is the Burn Pits the military uses to dispose of all the waste from the base. The military has everything and that's what went into the burn pit "Everything". The air quality was so bad there were days you'd vomit. Sometimes the fumes would even drop you to your knees, your eyes would water, your nose would burn and run. This pit was and or is located on the south, southwest side of the base with the prevailing winds out of the west, southwest. This pit was and or is set a fire every night. It burns all night and smouldered all day with fumes and smoke drifting all over the base. It was were we lived, it was where we worked. You couldn't escape it even if you tried

So my high priced whatever the fuck your name was KBR attorney who spent four hours slapping me around trying to pin my illness on my former military service of 30 something years ago, or the joint I may have smoked 20 something years ago somehow gave me plasmacytoma that's progressed into multiple myeloma where now I need chemo therapy and a bone marrow transplant in hopes I might live. Fuck you KBR attorney. There are thousands of us and someone's going to pay for my healthcare and that of all the others and compinsate us for what you stole from us. Our lives. What's that worth. There not enough money to compensate us for the years taken from our lives, the hardships this negligence has placed on our families both emotional and monetarily. Take you paycheck My KBR attorney. Sleep well...We didn't all just wake up one day and decided to be sick and then blame someone. I was diagnosed, then went to the internet to research my illness. That research led me to a website Then it clicked as to what is the most likely source of my illness and the illnesses of thousands. Common sense tells any normal thinking person what's happened. Is it KBR's fault? I don't know & I really don't care who's "Fault" it is. The fact is DOD Contractors who are mostly veterans themselves are being kicked to the curb in all the proposed legislation proposals. I'm not going allow this to happen. We will be care for and we will be compensated for the negligence. By who? I don't know, but I think it's unbelievable that all of us are getting fucked because of the negligence of whom ever decided to burn toxins, and put a sewage pond in such close proximity to the base. It was and is pure stupidity. Funny these days think of the stupidest thing that could be done in a situation and the government and the military will do it. Then throw in the greed factor of corporations that will do whatever to profit. It's a dangerous mix. Wars a dirty business I understand, but incompetence and knowingly, recklessly, and needlessly endangering the lives and health of people is unacceptable. Someone's responsible.

Putin on Muslims


Vladimir Putin on Muslims


No wonder he was selected by Forbes as the most powerful person in the world!! This is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin. I would suggest that not only our leaders but every citizen of USA should pay attention to this advice. How scary is that? It is a sad day when a Communist makes more sense than our LEADERS but here it is!!!!


Vladimir Putin's speech – HIS SHORTEST SPEECH EVER.


On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:


“In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim's then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law.


Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.


When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.”


The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.


If you keep this to yourself, you are part of the problem!

How Stupid Are You America?

How stupid do they think we are? Evidently they think you are stupid enough to believe this. I find it totally insulting that they think I am that stupid. The problem is I'll bet half of America may buy this bullshit. I promise you If I sent "You" an email and it landed in "Your" inbox,unless "You" or some one else trashed or deleted it "You" now have that email. So don't pull this bullshit the Lois Lerner emails have just magically   proofed into fairy dust and are now scattered by the wind and never recoverable. Get everyone's email she corresponded with. You'll find those emails, I promise you. If I had the money to put up I'd  pay at least a million in a reward to ever produced them. You?

Don't want to Kill You Buzz This 4th

My wife came home pissed. She went to the store to buy a few groceries this evening. There was a woman in front of her swiping her SNAP food stamp card trying to get cash with no purchase. The woman then got angry when the clerk told her she couldn't do that. She then grabs a pack of gum off the stand, throws in on the checkout and says "Fine let's just make it easy" she then swiped her SNAP card to pay for the gum and requested $25 cash back, and got it. 

Is there something wrong with me that I think this is outrageous?

Has this country completely lost it's mind?

Is this realy the country you want to live in? One where you buy the groceries for your family and two others?

I mean this place is a total friggin shambles and we will be lucky if we survive the mentality of I'm taking your stuff and giving it to someone else. 

Why the hell work?

That's the attitude that's been fostered to people about 35 and below. They're simply a product of a public school system that's been used by the left to indoctrinate the youth

It's not a new tactic. The NAZIs used it quit effectively. 

If you don't see how utterly sinister the federal government has become. God better help you, because no one else can. You're ass is blind as a bat and crazy as a rat.
