A medic story: A child's amputated hand and an Ahole doctor

Max and I were working 18 Boy one night when we received a report of a "severe laceration on st. Nicholas and 155 street. So we fly over there. We pull up and there's about 30 people screaming from a window on the third floor. We grab our trauma bag and as soon as we enter the building we hear people screaming and crying. We rush up and are ushered into an apartment. Max is in front of me and I'm behind. As I walked in a guy grabs me and pulls me over to the refrigerator and opens the door. Looking in I saw something that, even with my experience made me a little woozie: it was the hand of a child, palm down amputated at the wrist:

Max yells out: "Rocco we got to get the fuck out of here!"
" I know. I'm just putting the hand in ice". Well not in ice itself. I asked for two plastic bags. I put ice in one then the little hand in the other (my heart dropped when I picked it up. It was mangled terribly) and died it tight and placed it in the bag. then me and Max took off for Montifiore in the Bronx, a replant center. We get there and run in and begin tell the story. While I'm telling it some piece of shit doctor comes sauntering over and in a girlish voice says to my " All right, lets calm down here". I couldn't help it "Calm down? You ever look in a refrigerator and see a child's hand in there, asshole?". I mean I was steaming . I could have kicked his ass right there. Fortunately one of the nurses come running over "In here guy, hurry!". Turns out the asshole doctor was a gastroenterologist doing a consult in the ER! That's when Max pulled me physically out of the ER and the gas doctor took off to see another asshole
We find out later they were grinding meat and the kid stuck his hand in. So punish them for not keeping an eye on the kid? Looking at them as they watched them crying over their son I guess the were punished enough.
So we left the emergency room, Max sweating from head to toe and my heart broken and at the same time seething with rage. That was over 30 years ago and still if I ever ran into him in the street, I would run him into the street

Israel's Unique way of spoiling paradise for martyrs

Imagine your a supposedly successful suicide bomber in Israel. "Ah, my contribution to the destruction against those damned Jews is done" you shout in glee.And there before you are your beautiful 72 virgins, all ready and willing to grant you anything your evil heart desires. You choose one and approach her. She begins to disrobe. You reach out to touch her! All of a sudden someone taps you on the back. You turn and to your horror and see that it is Satan himself in all his malevolent glory with a big smile on his face. "Before you start to enjoy yourself look up, there's something I want you to see" states The Prince of Darkness with a booming laugh". With a sickly feeling of terror (no pun intended)  you look up what do you see? Your family, father, mother, siblings, pet hamster all being dragged from their home. screaming, fighting, pleading but to no avail. Next you hear a rumble and over the hill comes a bulldozer.Within minutes its job is done, your…

Breaking News Update: National Parks: Strange Disappearances Especially Children That Vanish Into Thin Air

This is a post I had written several weeks ago. Well Breaking News: CNN reporting that a child has been found after being lost in the woods for 3 days. Incredibly the child told authorities A BEAR! kept him company the entire time!
Since the inception of the National Park System was established more than 140 years ago our parks have grown from 1 to 450. They represent millions of square mile of scenic beauty, quiet, and escape into solitude. You can also swim, hike and disappear. Disappear? That's right, disappear into thin air. Not only adults but especially little children many of whom all it takes is a parent to bend and tie their shoe, look up and the child is gone. Not just gone but disappeared. Calling the child's name frantically, running in circles, screaming, nothing works. I means how far can a 3 year old child go so quickly? How about if I were to tell you 5 miles away, up a shear cliff, dead and stuffed in a tree?
Or there you are walking down a clear path on a br…

Trump Elected With Help From Pelosi and Schumer

Although it is obvious that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and others seethe at the very idea that Donald Trump is President of The United States but what they don't get is that they are some of the main forces behind Trumps victory! The American people got tired of the herd of political hypocrites, liars, thieves and just plain bums that were running our government. Americans got tired of all the indecent sobs that claimed empathy with the "people", like Nancy Pelosi who's $140,000 salary has miraculously mushroomed into a $200,000,000 fortune. Schumer, who spoils every Sunday morning with some inane announcement of outrage regarding, who knows, the ice at Rockefeller Center is really is 32.1 degrees instead of 32 degrees and vows to use every thing in his power to see that the perpetrators are brought to justice.
Americans have been getting sicker and sicker of the fact that their government was not for the people but for themselves. What American felt any, any ki…
