So I was at the gas station today and was approached by a vietnam vet who was in need for some gas money to get home. I handed him $5 and then a
conversation ensued about how bad the VA hospitals are now, obamacare and how obama needs to get out of the white house etc etc. He said that he
sometimes wished that we the vietnamese won because many Americans these days dont appreciate what those vets fought and some died for and he showed
me where he still had an old bullet lodged in the back of his shoulder.
Then he was talking about casing ammo. I told him I knew a guy who recases ammo and also 50 cal. He said that every 50 cal rifle on the market has
been dipped in uranium so I looking to see if this can be confirmed or denied by anyone on ATS.
You got taken. first its unlikely that the guy was a vietnam vet.(or is a drug seeker and found that the VA does not give out pain meds like candy)
And the VA hospitals are a lot better then most hospitals in the US except teaching hospitals and a few very expensive private hospitals. i go to the
VA for treatment and i am a ex EMT and have transported to a number of non VA hospitals and have seen the difference.
Also i have got a lot of care from the VA.
I have had Laparoscopic gall stone surgery at a time the hospital in the city i lived in did not do them and did the old style with the 5 inch scar
and a 1+ month recovery.
I had 5 way heart bypass surgery(CABG x 5 ) and drove myself a100+ miles home a week later.
Been DXed with H.V.Casleman's disease and Sarcoidosis after the local hospital where i lived could not find out what was wrong and claimed my
symptoms were all in my head.(I have never been back to my local hospital.)
With the VA if you need need treatment anywhere in the US they have your medical records and with a few clicks on the computer they have them right at
hand and in a emergency this in its self can be life saving. No other hospital system as big has this record system.
The EPA would never allow uranium to be used like that so i give that story a big BS rating.
