Acting Secretary Sloan Gibson visited Albuquerque on Thursday with high praise for the VA hospital´s staff. He said the staff "reacted properly" when a veteran collapsed in the hospital´s cafeteria and later died. Jim Napoleon Garcia, 71, waited half an hour for an ambulance to take him 500 yards away to the emergency room. He received CPR on the floor during that time. "As I heard what they did and I stood there and looked at them in the eye, I was very proud. I´m very proud of what they did," Gibson said. "I´ve never had to do something like

I have a serious question....does anyone work for the government that has any common sense? I have young grandchildren who would react to a serious situation better than these people did. What blows my mind is that they are proud that they did the "right thing" and the person died as a result. Who are these people? Do you have to have a lobotomy to be qualified to work for the government? It sure seems like it. If not that then possibly have to fail an IQ test?

Sorry for a second thought. This new VA secretary seems to be as good as the old sec.If Sloan had a loved one die on the floor of a hospital, we would not be hearing "reacted properly". Is anything an outrage anymore?Other than the Redskins of course.

There´s been a story in the news and on Facebook about a Vietnam Vet who lost both legs above the knee, whose wheelchair broke down in a Lowe´s. He´d been waiting forever for a new one from the VA. Three Lowe´s employees situated him in a chair and proceeded to rebuild the wheelchair immediately with parts they had at Lowe´s. The man left the store in a rebuilt chair, and the employees told him they were honored to have helped.

An ambulance to go 500 yards? These people are insane. How can the staff have reacted "properly" when the result is that the veteran died? "The operation was a success, but the patient died." Obama´s mentor was Alinski. The mentor for these people is apparently Kafka.

In summary...A government run hospital with government paid employees had a veteran die in their cafeteria and their boss is commending them for their efforts. Next patient!

Barak Barfi, a spokesman for the family of murdered journalist Steven Sotloff, accused the Obama administration of using Sotloff and fellow journalist James Foley as “pawns,” and reported that some of the “moderate” Syrian rebels sold Sotloff to ISIS on Monday’s “Anderson Cooper 360” on CNN. Barfi said that based on information from “sources on the ground,” “we believe that the so-called moderate rebels that people want our administration to support, one of them sold him probably for something between 25 and $50,000 to ISIS, and that was the reason that he was captured.”

When police found Ali Muhammad Brown, he was taking a mid-afternoon nap under a tarp strung between two trees, just a few hundred feet from a private road that runs along the first ridge of the Watchung Mountains in West Orange. A gun was tucked in his belt, his notebook diary nearby. He was living off bananas and other fruit. It was July 18 when Brown woke to several West Orange police officers with their guns trained on him. He surrendered without a fight.

Using his verified Twitter account, horror novelist Stephen King singled out the Tea Party for a lecture about Christianity as it pertains to the ongoing crisis at the Mexican border. "Revised Tea Party Gospel," King wrote in one tweet, "´Suffer the little children come unto me. Unless they´re undocumented kids from Central America.´" As of now, though, despite his vast wealth and land holdings, there are no reports of King offering to personally care for or allow any Central American border kids to take refuge in or on his property.

LIVINGSTON, IL – Homeland security, the US Customs and Border Patrol and other police agencies swarmed Livingston, Illinois. They all parked in the field of a grade school. The peacefulness of the town of 850 was broken by all the excitement. The law officers would not comment about their operation, even to the school superintendent and they were using the school district’s land. The site became an immediate attraction for citizens who say the officers were hospitable, inviting the kids to check out the choppers up close.

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and
