In September I wrote about a national shame – a dishonor so profound, that I called on Americans to stand up and vocally condemn unspoken orders to our military to turn their backs on systematic abuse of young Afghan boys by repulsive adult males in power, even as children were being raped by the very people with whom we were supposed to be working and cooperating!
Today, I have to write about another stigma – a black eye on the very foundation of our nation that, as a veteran, I’m embarrassed to even broach.
“A nation is judged by how well it treats its veterans.” — George Washington
You would have to have been hiding under a rock with the rest of the maggots to have missed or downright ignored the scandals that have plagued the Veterans Administration over the past few years.
Secret waiting lists that resulted in veterans dying while waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system and several other VA hospitals.
More than 300,000 veterans died while waiting for the VA to process their applications… waiting for stalled applications in the VA’s byzantine bureaucracy.
Unnecessary veteran deaths due to shoddy patient care, mismanagement, and outright incompetence.
All these stories are inexcusable, sad, infuriating, horrifying, and heartbreaking. Our nation sent these men and women to war – to get maimed both mentally and physically – and shameless, heartless bureaucrats neglect them and steal from them.
Such was the case of Diana Rubens and Kimberly Graves – two
VA officials pernicious swamp sows – who not only didn’t do their jobs, but manipulated the system to give themselves positions with less responsibility while siphoning six-figure salaries by forcing lower-ranking regional managers to accept job transfers against their will and stole $400,000 from the VA in relocation expenses.
This is a national shame. This is fraud, waste, and abuse at some of the highest levels of government, even as the VA struggles to take care of the troops it exists to serve. And yet…
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia is refusing criminal prosecution of Rubens and Graves.
The U.S. Attorney’s office said it has “referred the matter to the VA for any administrative action that is deemed appropriate.”
Administrative action? For essentially stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from America’s vets? For abusing their positions, for screwing with others’ careers by forcing them to accept job transfers against their will? For corruption? Fraud? Abuse of authority?
And worse yet, after the two corruptocrats were “demoted,” for their wrongdoing – if you can even call it that, as they were still earning six-figure salaries each – the demotion was rescinded, because someone buggered up the paperwork! These imbeciles can’t even get that right!
The lack of accountability and utter incompetence is beyond appalling.
Instead of working for the very men and women who work to defend this country, they steal from them.
Instead of helping those who have sacrificed for this nation’s safety, they profit at the veterans’ expense.
Instead of working to support the troops who come back traumatized, torn apart, maimed, and emotionally wrecked, these two odious, arrogant gargoyles sat around on their cellulite addled asses and collected hundreds of thousands of dollars from America’s taxpayers.
The rot and corruption at the agency that is tasked with taking care of our veterans is reprehensible, and the government’s refusal to hold these and other crooked reprobates at the VA accountable is inexcusable. The fact that they still have jobs is appalling, and since the US Attorney’s Office is refusing to prosecute these two toads, chances are they will be issued an administrative slap on the wrist and allowed to quietly retire with all their benefits.
Is it any wonder Americans are sick and tired of their unresponsive, unaccountable government? Is it any wonder government bureaucrats are a national (extremely unfunny) joke?
They are stealing from American veterans, and they are stealing from the American people. They are a disgrace, as is the entire VA for doing nothing and continuing to pay these two malignant warts on the ass of humanity!
Dear Cabbies –
I have used your services on many occasions… well, if you can call the malodorous, third-world careening through the streets of DC and Northern Virginia a “service.”
Yeah, I’m talking to you idiots, who can’t be bothered to use deodorant on a 100+ degree day, who drive around with the windows closed all day, blasting some savage ululation that passes for music in your world, and who take the longest way possible to get me where I’m going – whether because you want to charge me as much as possible, or you’re just too stupid to pull out your goddamn Google Maps on your phone. Yeah, I’m talking to you.
Today you decided that you would protest. You didn’t protest any infringement on your rights. You didn’t protest injustice.
No, you’re much more noxious and evil than that, you pernicious cockgobblers.
You protested innovation. You protested competition. You protested choice – the ability of your customers to choose the service that best suits their needs. You, in fact, protested freedom – the freedom your customers are entitled to – the freedom to choose with whom they want to do business.
You pitched a hissy fit, because you couldn’t compete with companies like Uber and Lyft. Your noxious, gag-inducing jalopies and your lack of knowledge of the environs, and your inability to abide by the traffic laws, which you apparently just take as nothing but suggestions, and your nauseating lack of regard for other drivers as you lurch in and out of traffic on the local roads, couldn’t possibly compete with the clean, polite, accommodating Uber, whose well-dressed, eloquent drivers are there within minutes, know the area, and get you where you need to go quickly and without drama.
So instead of improving your services, learning how to drive and taking a goddamn shower, you protest the very existence of the competition and try to destroy it.
And in the process you cause gridlock in what already is the most gridlocked city in the nation, you assholes!
You think that endears you to us?
You think that will make us, the customers, use your services – force us to conform to your mediocrity?
No. Ain’t happening.
You certainly will not hold us hostage to your pathetic inability to provide a quality service.
What you will do is piss us off and ensure we will never use you again. I, for one, will make damn sure that if I need a ride, I will call Uber or Lyft. I will make damn sure that none of you pernicious dickwaffles ever get my business again.
Others feel the same way I do, apparently.
Uber DC spox tells me they saw “a dramatic increase in signups and rides today.”

You offer shitty, overpriced non-service. You stink. You drive like monkeys on meth. And instead of improving your service to compete with these other organizations, you union thugs want to hold us hostage by tying up traffic in what is arguably the most gridlocked city in the United States?
Here’s hoping your worthless asses go broke.
If one of you worthless shitslurpers ever offers me a ride, all you will get is a big, fat finger.
There’s not a whole lot I can say right now about this story without unleashing a torrent of obscenities so severe, my screen will actually shatter.
(CNN) – At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list.
The secret list was part of an elaborate scheme designed by Veterans Affairs managers in Phoenix who were trying to hide that 1,400 to 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor, according to a recently retired top VA doctor and several high-level sources.
This is criminal. This is enraging. This is twisted and sick.
Worse yet, the sociopathic cuntwart who runs the Phoenix VA not only knew about this secret list, which was designed to falsify information about waiting times at he Phoenix VA, but she defended its use!
She defended the practice that covered up the scandalous wait times at the VA – for veterans who have earned the care, and who were proud to have served their nation – and KILLED THEM.
According to [Dr. Sam] Foote, the elaborate scheme in Phoenix involved shredding evidence to hide the long list of veterans waiting for appointments and care. Officials at the VA, Foote says, instructed their staff to not actually make doctor’s appointments for veterans within the computer system.
Instead, Foote says, when a veteran comes in seeking an appointment, “they enter information into the computer and do a screen capture hard copy printout. They then do not save what was put into the computer so there’s no record that you were ever here,” he said.
According to Foote, the information was gathered on the secret electronic list and then the information that would show when veterans first began waiting for an appointment was actually destroyed.
“That hard copy, if you will, that has the patient demographic information is then taken and placed onto a secret electronic waiting list, and then the data that is on that paper is shredded,” Foote said.
“So the only record that you have ever been there requesting care was on that secret list,” he said. “And they wouldn’t take you off that secret list until you had an appointment time that was less than 14 days so it would give the appearance that they were improving greatly the waiting times, when in fact they were not.”
This deplorable procedure was confirmed by other VA employees, and one even wrote an email, telling Phoenix VA Director Sharon Helman that this practice was morally and ethically repugnant.
“I have to say, I think it’s unfair to call any of this a success when Veterans are waiting 6 weeks on an electronic waiting list before they’re called to schedule their first PCP (primary care physician) appointment,” the e-mail states. “Sure, when their appointment is created, it can be 14 days out, but we’re making them wait 6-20 weeks to create that appointment.”
The e-mail adds pointedly: “That is unethical and a disservice to our Veterans.”
No shit! Really?
Helman apparently thought nothing of it. When CNN requested an interview, she ignored them, and then sent an arrogantly dismayed response about how shockingly “disheartening” these allegations were, and how she is “open to any collaborative discussion that assists in our goal to continually improve patient care.”
You know what would improve patient care, you rancid cockholster? Your immediate firing, charges of goddamn murder and fraud, and your immediate incarceration in PMITA prison (for those of you who don’t know, it’s Poke Me In The Ass prison). You want collaborative discussion, you fetid ass jizz gurgler?
Here’s collaborative discussion. Let’s figure out multiple ways for you to get violated in prison. I’m sure the inmates can find plenty of sharp, rusty objects to shove up your useless ass.
Here’s hoping you become a cum dumpster for every unwashed, syphilitic hobo and a receptacle for every piece of garbage and get stuffed with used tampons, toilet paper, snot wads and every other imaginable piece of refuse like a stuffed turkey in every foul orifice you own. You have earned the most painful exit out of this world possible in the country’s worst, most violent and dangerous prison, you fraudulent, lying, sociopathic cunt. And I hope if hell does exist, there’s a special place in it for you – a place where you’re repeatedly flayed by rusty sporks and dipped in hydrochloric acid, only to be healed, flayed again and dunked again so you feel unimaginable agony for eternity.
You will have earned it.

My latest for JPFO.
Once upon a time, there was this agency. It was created in the aftermath of a gargantuan tragedy in a country whose enemies supposedly hated it for the freedoms it protected. The country decided to do something about this “freedom hatred,” so it created an agency that terrorized little children, victimized the elderly, stole money and property and molested passengers in airports nationwide. That’ll show ’em! They can’t hate us for our freedoms any longer! See? It’s all for your safety!
