Heroic veteran from Oregon shooting just glad he’s not in VA hospital

From The Duffel Blog.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Real-life hero and Army veteran Chris Mintz, who took seven gunshot wounds while protecting classmates at an Oregon college last week, says he considers himself truly blessed to get treatment in a civilian hospital.

“As I got in the ambulance, I kept thinking to myself, ‘Dear God, please don’t let them take me to a VA hospital. I don’t want to die waiting for treatment,’” Mintz told reporters from his bedside at Mercy Medical Center, where nurses actually check on him periodically to ask whether he needs anything, such as a blanket or a snack from the cafeteria, and bring it back to him within minutes, despite him not filling out the proper DA-7022 Form, Meal Replenishment paperwork. “When I think about my brothers and sisters in arms that started waiting for Veterans Affairs service before I was shot, and will still be in the waiting room after I’m discharged, I have flashbacks of my week-long VA eye exam.”

In recognition of Mintz’s heroism, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter offered to transfer Mintz to any active military hospital of his choice for continued care, sources confirmed. “No thanks,” Mintz reportedly said, according to an unnamed physical therapist who started working with the Army veteran almost immediately after a doctor requested his services instead of waiting for paperwork to make it through the system over a period of five to seven months. “If I can’t stay in a civilian hospital, just go ahead and drop me off at my car and I’ll drive home.”

While many have speculated about the VA’s response to Mintz’s statements, the department has so far remained silent. When reporters attempted to reach the VA for comment, they were put on hold, then after a seven-hour wait, the line was cut off.

Mintz, who has shown never-ending selflessness, says that he hopes to recover soon.

“The faster I’m out of here, the faster I can start repaying them for my GI Bill,” Mintz said. “After getting dropped from my classes because I have not attended over the past few days, the VA wants its money back.”

There is nothing in particular to editorialize about, so I’ll just wing it.

BIG SIS’ HOMECOMING DATE

Go ahead. Roll your eyes and keep scrolling. Most of you stop here for Chrissy’s in depth posts on matters of Faith and maybe the funny crap I post. The long and short of it is this: aside from my fishing partner I have no friends. I have always considered you as friends I’ll never meet. A very large part of my life has been wasted. The only thing I can look back at with pride are my two girls. During the most important times in their youth I was busy taking care of myself first and foremost. Now they’re grown and have children of their own and I’m trying to make up for some of the irreparable harm I did by neglecting them for so long.

After 40 years of smoking two packs of cigarettes a day my cardiologist gave me two choices: quit and enjoy your grandkids a little longer, or keep on and probably not see them graduate. Quitting cold turkey was a easy proposition. I don’t carry a lot of pictures in my wallet because there’s no one to show them to. So I do it here. Those little ones are the only reason I have to keep going.

Thank you for your patience.

Fact Checking Planned Parenthood’s Media Spin

Planned Parenthood and its lapdogs continue to parrot the lie that the undercover videos released by The Center for Medical Progress were “deceptively edited” and “highly doctored.”

These videos, of course, were the ones that exposed Planned Parenthood’s participation in the illegal and morally repugnant harvesting of fetal body parts for profit.

Partial birth abortion

Each time an edited video has been released, the full length footage it was cut from has also been publicly posted as well. https://www.youtube.com/user/centerformedprogress

Two different digital forensic companies have analyzed the CMP footage and reported that:

– all the videos are “authentic and show no evidence of manipulation or editing.’”
– footage missing from the shorter videos was of “non-pertinent” events like bathroom breaks.
– none of the edits or cuts in the shorter videos distort the meaning of the conversations depicted.

Planned Parenthood’s Mammo-sham is well depicted in this quick video.

Richards also continues to spout the 3% lie. An examination of Planned Parenthood’s financial records shows that 96% of pregnant women who go to Planned Parenthood do so to have their babies killed.

Lawmakers are considering canceling Planned Parenthood’s government subsidy and giving the money to the more than 13,000 comprehensive health care facilities across the United States that serve women, without doing abortions.

As long as abortion is legal, Planned Parenthood can continue killing babies for profit. But the loss of taxpayer funding might mean the PP honchos now pulling down half a mill a year might have to cut back on their life styles. Say … opt for Toyotas instead of Lamborghinis?
