Veteran Found Dead On VA Property


"In 2013, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs released a study that covered suicides from 1999 to 2010, which showed that roughly 22 veterans were dying by suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes."

Usually they let us die in our homes... Someone actually got an appointment or did he die there to make a statement about the government shirking on the deal.

I was going to note that at least being found dead on their property is more direct than being found dead on a govt rationer's waiting list.

FWIW, when I first became a RCG member, somebody posted in the US about twice as many people "successfully" commit suicides, as are murdered. I asked him where he got that statistic from, and he posted from either the US census or CDC. I checked and he was correct. I thought it was a strange statistic because I hear every day about people being murdered in the US, but rarely hear about suicides.

Below are some more US suicide statistics I think I remember correctly:

Women are about 4 times more likely to have attempted suicide
Women are more likely to attempt suicide between ages teen and thirty.
Men are about 4 times more likely to "succeed" at committing suicide.
Men are more likely to commit suicide between ages 40 - 70

There is a serious problem with suicide in this country, 40000+ a year, and steadily increasing every year.

Those others are usually found dead in their beds in a for profit hospital waiting to find out if their for profit insurance will cover the procedure!

I wonder if those who despise profits save any money from their earnings, as that would be "profit". Maybe that explains why such a large portion of the population have no savings - they hate profits!

You seem ok with the concept of people dying simply because they can't afford the exorbitant costs of healthcare ?
