No one’s personal blood is “banked;” it still goes into the blood supply. You just get credit for it.

Betcha the elites blood is banked prior to surgery.

I’m talking Bush, Gore, Clinton, Romney, Gates, etc.

It’s just the peons (way too many of us mind you) who have to play roulette with the blood supply.

I stored my own blood for my surgery. Yes, you can donate your own and request it. My doctor insisted that I do an autologous donation. I saw the pints myself in the OR.

You're simply wrong. Look up autologous blood donation. If self-donation is a one-for-one exchange, what would be the point? And why would there be a specific term for it? The blood is already available -- you don't need to build up blood credits. Not yet, anyway. Maybe it's set out on a still-unread page in Obamacare.

I'll do the legwork for you. Assuming "FW" is Fort Worth, here is a quote from nearby Carter BloodCare in Bedford, Texas:

"Q: Can I give blood for myself?

"Yes. It is called autologous donation. Autologous means "self donation" and refers to donating blood for your own surgery. This is a decision that you and your surgeon must make together. An autologous donation can only be drawn with an Autologous Donation Request Form that must be completed and signed by your surgeon. Once the form is completed, you may contact our Special Donations Department at 1-866-525-3378 or Metro 817-412-5308 to schedule an appointment at a Donor Center (Monday - Friday) near you."
