Homeless Dumping continues this time "a Quadriplegic" as Bush cuts health care once again!


Homeless Dumping continues this time "a Quadriplegic" as Bush declares great economy and cuts health care once again! What the hell?

I really find this disgusting! I say it often but I refuse to believe that our social system is so problematic and obviously so but Bush ignorantly goes on TV and says "his" economy is in great shape. As he did again in pushing his 2008 budget, he goes on to propose another cut in Health care and the needy, his so called unfunded liabilities. This is abhorrent and unconscionable.

The last time homeless dumping was an issue I posted a story on it in hopes of making it an issue here and getting some traction with it.
I have to wonder who all these people are that he is surrounded by that are cheering him? Where does he find all these wealthy and millionaires besides creating them and perpetuating them by giving them back their tax contributions? He is not talking about my economy when he brags about how good it is.! Last fall when I first wrote about this I used this one small example of homeless dumping and our problematic health care system to illustrate why we had to get back Congress. It is painfully obvious that it does not matter as long as the chief idiot is in charge.

In the past I have posted as others have done, on how bad things are getting for average Americans. In the past I have posted on the nightmare of healthcare for average Americans. This following story though absolutely astounded me but what is the answer? It is not right to throw those medically in need on skid row if they do not have insurance. What do we do? Authorities had launched a criminal investigation last October into suspected dumping of homeless people on Skid Row after police witnessed ambulances leaving five people on a street there during the weekend.

The city attorney's office was reviewing police videotapes and photographs of the five suspected dumping cases to determine whether the patients were falsely imprisoned during their transfer and whether the hospital, Los Angeles Metropolitan Medical Center, violated any laws regarding the treatment of patients.

What the hell is it all worth? It continues and this is only one area in the entire country? Today I hear this: This is even worse! How friggen low can they go and get away with it?

A hospital van dropped off a paraplegic man on Skid Row, allegedly leaving him crawling in the street with nothing more than a soiled gown and a broken colostomy bag, police said. Witnesses who said they saw the incident Thursday wrote down a phone number on the van and took down its license-plate number, which helped detectives connect the vehicle to Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center, the Los Angeles Times reported on its Web site.

 Detectives were mortified as I am and I am sure you are too but again, what the hell is it worth? Their is no mission around and I know from the last story that it was investigated but how the hell do they get away with this and how the hell does Bush get away with calling his mess a success?
