Cancer And War, They Both Suck

In this week’s video installment post I got two installments that encapsulates the spirit of courage and sacrifice, blubbering is allowed.

First up is a work by a group of nurses who work in the cancer ward at Minnesota’s hospital, where the stars are the patients themselves, roll it;

Angels of mercy, is spades. What could be tougher then working in a ward with dying kids? Fortunately those new oncology drugs was being fastracked by the FDA. Gone are the days of phase III clincial trials and 10 year waits, who days a government agency can’t get something right?

The next entry is another edition of one of my favorite themes. Believe it or not, we are still at war, our soldiers are still dying, and military families must still endure extreme hardships, but sometimes they get back a little something in return;

A mother re united with her son would emotional no matter what the circumstances, but a military mom living in a nation at war takes on a whole new meaning, US out of Afghanistan now.

Next week I’ll do something more humorous, maybe something along the lines of Obama praising the new Obamacare website as being just an all around smashing success, that would give everyone a laugh.

    Like if they finally give in and recognize that the only folks capable of running it and making it work are Halliburton.

    At least Haliburton will not abuse the system as bad as these government types are and will be doing it.

    Maybe Obama can get Halliburton in to delete the 5 billion lines of computer code….

    Halliburton pleaded guilty to destroying evidence after the April 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster – the company destroyed computer simulations it performed in the months after the accident, simulations that contradicted Halliburton’s claim that it was BP who had not followed Halliburton’s advice. BP had employed Halliburton to oversee the process by which cement is used to seal pipes in oil and gas wells, thereby preventing leaks. Government investigators had ordered companies involved in drilling the well to preserve all relevant evidence.[48] Halliburton director Anthony Badalamenti in Texas has been charged for deleting data related to the deadly BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in September 2013.
