"But when it's all said and done, nothing will be fixed - because no one really has the guts to do it."

As usual.

It is very hard for me to refrain from commmenting on the blurbs Cone puts up - as someone who has never served in any capacity and thinks he understands what is going on. Yes, it IS shameless.

Hearings will be held. The most horrifically injured patients will be paraded for the TV cameras. More good taxpayer money will be thrown after bad. And the Bush-bashers will come out of the woodwork (gleefully ignoring how long this stuff has been going on).

Deaf, Dumb & Blind Clintonista Donna Shalala is on the case. Are they *&^*$ kidding?.

But when it's all said and done, nothing will be fixed - because no one really has the guts to do it.

"More from Kevin MD. From Orin Johnson: "'o all the liberals who see the Walter Reed scandal (rightly) as an example of government failing its people, why do you insist on foisting such a system on the whole of the American public?'"

Exactly.

God help us all if the "progressives" get their way with health care in this country.

Regarding the shameless politicing over the Walter Reed revelations:

what else would we expect from hypocrites who really are not interested in supporting the troops, unless it can be manipulated into political gain?

Dale (formerly of SouthGate News) dropped this comment on "Hospice of Randolph" when I'm fairly certain he meant to put it here:

"I had been in Puerto Rico for three days when I felt sick and went to the dispensary. There I was not allowed to see a doctor but given a handful of antiacid tablets for my upset stomach.

I rested uncomfortably during the night and nade a trip to the bathroom to reguritate. The next morning I went back to the dispensary and after refusing to leave, a doctor diagnosed me with acute appendicitis and told me to go to the Army hospital.

When I asked how I was supoosed to get there, I was informed that was my problem. The ambulance parked outside was reserved for officers, their families, and emegencies.

I went to transportation as I was told to see the master-of-arms who told me I had to go to the dispensary. There I was again told it wasn't their concern but up to me to find my own way to the hospital.

I went to the base commanders' office and was told that they couldn't help me. I had to find a friend to take me.

I again went to the master-of-arms and asked for a ride to the hospital and I was told that if one of the drivers would agree to take me, at the end of their shift and on their own time, I could ask.

After waiting five hours, I finally managed to talk one guy into giving me a ride, at a cost of twenty bucks.

At the hopital I was prepped for immediate surgery and the orderlies handled me very gently as the slightest jar could cause my appendix to burst.

After my operation, I was disciplined for missing work. In the following years, my superiors (for lack of a better word) couldn't understand my distain for the military. I did my job and did it well because the lives of others depended upon it but I was relunctant to follow military protocol.

I have the higest respect for military doctors but not for the system they have to work under."

There are several ways to deal with people like Cone.

One way is to ignore them and their warped egos that cause their equally warped perception of and adaptation to reality.

Another way is to expose them for who and what they really are.

Sometimes it's just not worth the time and effort to respond, even when they are factually wrong, or are flat out lying.

Sometimes it's not worth even acknowledging their nonsense.

Sometimes it's just amusing to destroy their easily fractured arguments and talking points.

The key point to remember is that vary few (save themselves and their various entourages) take them seriously at this point.

They've been busted.
