A bus load of wounded soldiers arrived last night. There were a lot of helicopters overhead. We don't know where they are going to put them all. The surgeons are working around the clock. There are no available beds. There is a shortage of nurses and aides. A friend of mine had to go to Fort Meade this morning for surgery, otherwise she would have waited three months for surgery here. A marine was told if he needed an MRI, he would have to go to camp LaJuene in North Carolina. This is happening while they are being forced to close this place down and merge with Bethesda, which also has a shortage of operating rooms and beds. Are we finished yelling at each other over healthcare reform? Does anybody remember there is a war going on?

This boggles my mind. What is wrong with the people in charge? Are they all morons? There are times when the all-might buck needs to take a back seat or get thrown off the bus altogether, and this is one of them. I'm going to bitch to the Commander-In-Chief and anyone else I can think of. Bastards.
