More Bullshit and Bombings!

Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
So, besides the fun n games... and whatnot weirdness, I'm scanning the early news today, and found meselves seeing a story on the Daily Fail talking about "Ohmahgerd! COVID and No Rooms!!!" mass hysteria again over again.

Oh STFU and gimme a break...
The hospital in question is St. Joseph Hospital in downtown Tampa.  So I called them not 15 minutes ago and asked what the wait times are and how's the capacity?  Currently, as of 10:15 a.m. there's 14 people in the Emergency Room.  Wait times they wouldn't 'officially' give me, but the girl said it's about 20 minutes right now, as they're short staffed.

Takeaways from that?
They more than likely laid off a shit-ton on people when there wasn't anyone around
That the 'surge' IS going on, but NOT to the point of mass hysteria 
And that it does sound busy, but the people who're there?
I mean it's the ER... it could be -anything- from a broken finger to COVID
Heart attacks yadda yadda...
We don't know the reason the ER is flooded.

True story time.  Back in 2006 when I was home on R&R, Spawn got somehow clubbed in the head by one of the neighborhood kids... laid his nugget wide open to the skull... like bone showing.  MAD head wound.  I slapped a trauma bandage on him (Israeli compress... works as advertised) and made ONE mistake.

I should have call a Ambulance.  Instead I bundled him off to the local ER.  We got there and Oh. My. Gawd.  Talk about overrun... There were, no joke, at least 75+ people, ALL of them from what I could tell, illegals with the sniffles and shit.  Little known fact, but we got a LOT of farms here in Central Florida, and depending on the season, we usually have a huge influx of Central American pickers.  And when they get sick, they hit the local ER as they can't be turned away.  So, the wait time went to 'insane' and I did some stupid things that eventually got my spawn seen... came really close to being arrested...

But I had to do something... we were closing in on that 'window' for the ability to get subcutaneous stiches done... I believe it's 3 hours or he was risking some serious scarring and tissue death... at 2 hours and like 50 minutes I threw a holy shit fit that scared the ever-loving shit out of a lot of people.  It DID help that I was wearing, no shit three-color DCU pants, my combat boots, and one of them gawd-awful "Mercenary T-Shirts" that now looking at it is soooo tacky but was quite the fashion statement in Iraq at the time...  Went into "-RAGE-BEAST-" mode...  I ended up getting the attention of a full bird Colonel medical doctor doing his 'extra weekend work' at the ER from McDill.  To keep up with 'current' med stuff like gunshots and whatnot, the ER Docs from McDill will work the local ERs.  You could spot this guy from a mile away, as his 'scrubs' were Camo.  Very cool IMO BTW.  

I was throwing shit-fit, loud, screaming, threatening, type one each, when the Colonel came over and braced my ass "Soldier!  What the hell are you raising a ruckus in my ER!?!"  I locked up naturally... hell reflexively, and explained.  He was so fucking cool.  Dude immediately ran Spawn in the back and stiched him up his damned self, even though some minor functionary tried to take over.

"Army takes care of it's own son."

A-fucking-Men Colonel.
Bought the guy a bottle of really good hootch as a thank you.
But yeah, I mean DiveMedic has said they're getting clobbered BUT a lot has to do with staffing cuts.  Always look to the administrators of any and all corporations to save a buck for themselves if they can by cutting staff, even if they're critical staff.

So another on-the-spot update
Kabul, Abbey Gate:
Moment of the KA-BOOM!
Seems ISIS-K (gee, who comes up with these names?) did a suicide bombing at the gate that was jam packed with troops and civvies, possibly both 'Murican AND Affy trying to unass the A.O.  Maaaan... as Ole Remus, P.B.U.H. used to say "Avoid crowds."
Absolutely gorrdamned right Aye?
Now... Our Ministry of Propaganda, who never met a COVID body count they didn't like? Well, So far the count is "3 Marines Hurt"
Whereas the screen snips I took from some rando--Haji on-the-scene put up on Twitter... well, these are two screen captures... the quality, as you can see is shit, however, they sorta speak for theyselves.  The first one,  and then the second one were shot in a row, so there MAY be some overlap but hey... 
That blue bucket show how he's panning left-to-right

Dunno about you but that's some serious stacked cordwood-style pile o'corpses.
I mean sheesh... and the clip was all of 10 seconds, in a very narrow field of view?
The explosion pic?  That was a huge blast if it went off in the middle of some seriously tightly packed people.  This's the sort of thing where the casualty count is determined by "How many right feet versus left feet do we have?"  The larger number is how many got whacked.

I'll be curious to see what the final count is, and if we lost any troops... hopefully not.
Either way though, this's all on Slo.
That motherfucker is responsible.  
Wish they'd stop fucking with our troops, and just flat out proclaim "Jihad!" on our Leadershit and go after them directly.  Quit fucking around with 'we the peepul' per se, and go for the head assholes.

THAT would be entertaining, especially since the Leadershit would jump on the "They're attacking our representative values and our institutions!   They hate our freedoms!"

Uh no goys and ghouls, they hate what you have done to them to line your own pockets.  And seeings how any and all of our Leadershit haven't 'represented' -anything- "for the people" in like forever, I'm comfortable with them going directly to the White House and blowing it the fuck up with everyone in it.  And before you gas me about it, ain't the first time the place has been razed to the ground... First time in the war on 1812... in fact, googling it... well, well, well, well... guess when it was burned?
August 24, 1814
Huh... an anniversary without nary a mention anywhere...
Guess they don't want anyone getting any ideas

Jes' Sayin'
The second time it was razed was after World War Two... you wouldn't know it, but under FDR for the what? Almost 11 years and one month... (he would have had 16 years, if he'd lived, God help(ed) us I like to think...) but in that 11 years, maintenance apparently was on the 'back burner' so much that when Truman took over, the structural engineers realized that one good sneeze and/or fart could have literally blown the building down...

Truman moved into Blair House across the street, and the White House was literally gutted... as in the fa├žade was propped up to keep up appearances, but the interior?  Oh yeah man... they tore it down like completely
Case in point:
So yeah, lot of people didn't know that.
If the 'bad guys' ever were to blow the place up, I'm like 'whatever'...
It's just a building, and seeings how the DotGov ceased representing the ACTUAL people of the Untied Statz, I'm like 'we can rebuild it again... ain't the first time, probably won't be the last.'

Again, Jes' Sayin'

  1. Four Marines dead so far, the death toll is just going to go up

    1. At least a dozen now, watch the neocons try to use this as an excuse to escalate with larger numbers.

  2. FWIW - buddy who does PM on Anesthesiology machines told me nurses are quitting in droves. He works a multi-sate area in midwest to north east. His opinion was a comnbination of a fear of covid plus (maybe moreso) they were pulling in a comfortable amount of money just staying home.

    1. In John Ringo's "Last Centurion," the plague burnt out quickly after the medical people either died in place or bailed and people had no where to go.

      But more likely, people are quitting in droves because they refuse the jab. Those that didn't get fired or laid off or furloughed during the scandemic.

  3. Thoughts:
    Since the bad guys are in control, why didn't they just mortar the crowd, instead of using a suicide bomb?
    Some nurses quit or got fired for refusing to take the death jab.
    So the Lincoln bedroom didn't even exist when Lincoln was president!

  4. The good doctor quoted at the top of this article does not exist according to Health Grades

    1. Whats even more interesting is that the doctor does exist..

      So why did "Unknown" post such a obvious lie. The linkedin entry for the doctor is the very first item returned by a google search on the doctors name.

      So is Unknown a Fibber? He certainty looks stupid enough to be one.


  5. They are now saying 11 Marines and 1 Navy medic are dead. Alzheimer Joe and the rest of you liberal asshats, you own this fuckup.

  6. We are going to seems lot of factional violence between the various terrorist groups in A'stan seeking dominance. And as usual the collateral damage isn't really collateral.....but targeted victims. The Taliban may be in charge NOW but ISIS etc will start filtering into the country seeking to take it from them.

    As for hospitals and beds...... More often than not the inability to admit a patient is a STAFFING issue, NOT a lack of beds. There are STRICT guidelines on patient nurse ratios. Fail to meet that ratio and it affects reimbursement. sometimes all the beds ARE full.....but not usually.

  7. That little bulldozer in the White House? Was disassembled outside and reassembled inside.

    And Eisenhower ordered the place fixed after, supposedly, his daughter's piano fell partially through one of the floors.

    Plus, Fuck FDR the philandering asshole (he was fucking his secretary while his wife was in the next bedroom, apparently she couldn't stand old Wheels Roosevelt and it was a political marriage.

    1. Can't say I blame him.
      Ever see a picture of her?
      All those blue-bloods are inbred and it shows.


    2. Elanor was a lesbo, isn't that obvious?????

    3. i read she had a girlfriend. seriously.

  8. Nice picture of Mussolini. Photo got his good side.

    And what was that old Will Rodgers joke about the difference between a politician and a Statesman? Or his suggestion that there should be one day that was Open Season on Senators with no bag limit?

  9. Debris from White House buried under a baseball diamond in a D>C> park. Federal land cant dig it up.

  10. May these guys be in the arms of Jesus.

    I have a stupid question. I saw something about anti-mortor technology. Could some one explain what this is. I find it fascinating these kind of simple tools are still a pain in the ass like RPGs. Since I am not a Marine, God rest their souls, you can use words greater than 3 syllables.

  11. ...We are going to seems lot of factional violence between the various terrorist groups in A'stan seeking dominance.....

    Fuck, Talliban is probably making bank selling front row tickets to anyone who want to kick the shit out of the FUSA Empire. I know these tribes historically hate each other, but they also historically put that aside if they 2 tribrs hate someone else more. I imagine there are a lot of peoples the world that hate the FUSA more than each other.

  12. If it's going to burn, couldn't we first fill it with both houses, and the entire executive branch?
