I would be careful what you post here or anywhere else on the internet about
the VA.You could possibly lose your job,your insurance and pension.
Second, unless his employer has specific rules regarding internet use while not on the clock, he can say what he wants.It's called the First Amendment, freedom of speech.
Second,a lot of businesses are using peoples' internet usage against them. example...anything you post on facebook,twitter...can be used against you! Our U.S. constitution is being destroyed and it is just a matter of time before we lose ALL of our rights.

Sorry it took so long to reply. But from coming to the VA everyday for about 6 months now. The place is more like a hang out than a actual hospital. Armed guards at every entrance. Most of the people that are coming for the ER are people coming in for drug abuse. But only a short walk from the ER is the closed in pharmacy where VETs are walking out with bags full of meds and then falling asleep on the chairs. There is a rule here that if you get caught sleeping you get kicked out. (because most of the time they are not sleeping but nodding out).
I can tell you that there is a big street drug problem here from all the heroin bags i see on the ground. The gaurds care and some of the staff seem to care but the doctors here sprint from door to door trying to avoid the people. I see most of the same people here everyday, as I said its more of a hang out.
Oh and they have a starbucks!

I work in a building, ask me stuff.
I see lots of people on here that are scared to give an opinion because they might misspell or use "there" in the wrong context.
