“PURE UNADULTERATED FRUSTRATION”
by OPOVV, ©2016
“Hello, sir and dog. How are the ventriloquist lessons going? The news of the day is that we lost another Veteran, this time right in the parking lot of one of the VA hospitals. Seems he was denied ER services. And then they come out with this statement: ‘Why Mr. Kaisen decided to end his life was not immediately known.’ Any comments?”
“Hmmm, ‘any comments.’ Yes, now that I thought it through, I’ve decided, yes, I have a few comments. I’ll start at the beginning: the requirements of the employees of the VA Administration. EVERY employee of the Veterans Administration SHOULD have served and received an Honorable Discharge, although why it’s not that way is indeed a mystery, is it not? I mean, who would know more about the problems of our veterans than their fellow veterans, right?
“And then there’s this ‘bonus’ nonsense. Remember Lois Lerner? That IRS liar and cheat who wouldn’t answer questions about her public job performance? Can you imagine that? If I was a boss and an employee refused to answer any of my questions, I’d fire them on the spot. But not only did Lerner get to retire, she received a bonus to boot.
“But getting back on track: ever since Obama came on the scene, the scene changed for the worse. I ought to know since I’ve been going to the VA for 40 years. I’ve been to VA hospitals and Outreach Centers all across this country so I know what I’m talking about. Why, just recently I had a hernia and required an operation and, guess what? I was put on a waiting list of more than a year. And I almost died one day, after about eight months of waiting.
“Now this guy who did away with himself was a Vietnam veteran. So he already had a mountain of frustration piled upon him year after year after year. And then he hears about Obama’s ‘GET OUR TROOPS KILLED’ Rules of Engagement. And the animals being released from GITMO when, all along, each and every one of those prisoners deserves to be lined up against a wall and shot.
“And then he hears about the Iran nuke deal; and about Israel being thrown under the bus; and the Navy acting like a bunch of cowards, like what happened on the USS Cole. Look, I was in the Navy and I stood watch and I loaded my M1 and chambered a round and was more than ready and willing to use it to protect my shipmates.
“And he hears about that traitor Bergdahl and why hasn’t he been put against the same wall as the rest of the ragheads and shot for being a traitor. And then he hears about these hundreds of thousands of dollars these incompetent government employees are stealing – there’s no other word – from the taxpayers: from him personally, an honorable taxpayer. A stand-up guy getting run over day after day, year after year and decade after decade and it begins to wear him down, wears him down to where he’s just not able to make the lines connect; no longer can he make sense of the guilty walking free.
“He sees ‘Sanctuary Cities’ and can’t make sense of it. He knows there are MILLIONS of illegal immigrants who are offered more services and getting more help (money) than he ever did or ever could. And to top it off, he sees millions of Muslims who are also being welcomed into his country, people who would want him dead just because he’s a Christian (STRIKE 1); an American (STRIKE 2); and a Veteran who still lives his daily life according to the dictates of the Oath he took to the Constitution when he volunteered to serve his country to the best of his ability in time of peace and in time of war (STRIKE 3).,
“And then he hears about EpiPen and learns the extent of the greed in the country that he was willing to lay down his life for, and it saddens him to the point where he can’t function in the ‘Land of the Obots.’ HE knows that Obama is a Muslim imposter, nothing but a cheap-suited, de facto president: a meaningless and worthless American but a very effective agent of Islam. And he knows that Hillary would be just as destructive to his beloved country and yet he hears every day that his fellow Americans hate America to such an extent that they publicly cheer Hillary on.
“He died of pure unadulterated frustration. The cause of death was frustration; the reason for his death was frustration. He would’ve liked to go back in and blown a bunch of people away, but he knew that wouldn’t make a difference. He knew that his life – alive OR dead – wouldn’t make a difference. He was made to be a worthless human being: a veteran, the lowest of the low: “I’m sorry, but we can’t help you.’
“And then the very day he died, the American Navy destroyer, the USS Nitze, turned tail and ran away from some little Iranian speedboats. Americans turning tail and running: Vietnam all over again: get spit on; called a baby-killer; ‘We’re sorry, but you’re a worthless human being: you have no worth; therefore, we will not help you, so go and kill yourself in our parking lot. We’ll still get our bonus because we belong to a union and you can’t fire us. So the joke’s on the poor sod who did away with himself for no reason other than we get to cross him off the waiting list. We’ll list him as ‘DEALT WITH’ and get one step closer to yet another bonus.”
“Maybe some day you’ll tell us how you really feel about whatever question you’re answering. Well, folks, our time is up and so, on behalf of the crew, I’ll be wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.
“Wow, I didn’t quite expect a whole discourse. I was expecting the dog to chime in at any moment. Hey, Mr. Veteran, care to join us for a burger? My treat.”
