Military Terror Hits US Cities As Veterans Banned From Owning Guns?

VA doctor asked disabled veteran if he owned any guns.

(PHILADELPHIA, PA) - Robert O'Dowd 2012 I was asked by a VA doctor last week if I owned any guns. I said, “No, but I know how to use them.” He was typing into a government database when he asked the question. I don’t know if my flip response was typed into the database.

The middle age male doctor reminded me of a Nazi scientist (not kidding): Just firing off questions like “is there any mental illness in my family? Was I sexually abused as a child?

Wrongful Deaths at the VA: VA Pays $200 Million in Malpractice Claims

If the "troops" are so important, why does it take the US Gov't so long to act?

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - VA hospitals When the wrongful death malpractice claims at the Phoenix V.A. Hospital hit the news it was all about Phoenix...Phoenix...Phoenix with 40 dead veterans waiting for a diagnosis, not even medical care, which would have prolonged or saved their lives. The report includes information from about 175 VA Hospitals and found that almost all of them had dozens of inadequate care and wrongful deaths. All of this should NOT be happening!

The V.A. has paid out a high amount for their medical malpractice claims but it seems to feel that it is someone else's money. None of the malpractice doctors have paid out a cent which seems to be a gross and bad disincentive!

VA Medical Malpractice with Death: They are killing our Veterans!

Are our VA hospitals equal to NAZI death camps?

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - American flag A recent expose’ of at least 40 medical malpractice deaths at the Phoenix Arizona VA hospital brings to the forefront the fact that VA medical care is more dangerous than combat itself.
