Nurses Executive Branch/Cabinet

  1. With all the topics we've covered here on, I thought that it would be interesting if we were to Nominate/Elect nurses to the following based on their postings.

    Secretary of the Agriculture
    Secretary of Commerce
    Secretary of Defense
    Secretary of Education
    Secretary of Energy
    Secretary of HUD
    Secretary of HRS
    Secretary of the Interior
    Secretary of Justice
    Secretary of Labor
    Secretary of State
    Secretary of the DOT
    Secretary of the Treasury
    Secretary of VA
    Surgeon General
    Chief of Staff
    This should be interesting.

    Excuse me but I nominate chas for chief of staff.
    I'd make him president but I think he has ethics would never stoop to Clintonisms.

    However, Kewl has potential, and he is a cut to the chase decisive kind of guy.

    Eeeeeewwwww, who would want to??!!

    Anyway, canoe, I kind of think you wouldmake a good pres, always seemlevel headed!

    I nominate NRSKaren for Dept of Health & Human services(no offense to the above nominated!)

    I nominate myself for HUD, Lord knowsI have sent Adult Protective services to enough homes for a million diff reasons! And, and a HOME care nurse.

    I am nominating DPlear for DOT, he should do well on his new Harley!

    Brandy is an excellent choice for Ed, though, I may put her in energy, have you read that girl's schedule?? She should bottle that energy!!

    I can't explain why, maybe b/c of her patriotism, I would put nurs4 in Dept of justice. It just hit me when I read the list.

    And Lois Jean for sec of Agriculture, b/c she has her feet firmly planted on the ground (hahahaha LJ!)

    And wildtime should be in dept of labor, don't you think? He is very pro-union, if I am not mistaken, and though I am not pro-union, I think his heart and spirit are in the right place in fighting for the rights of nurses. (OK Wild, don't say I never said anything nice about you! )

    Betts: What a great idea!

    Hoolahan, I accept the nomination. Agree with your tweaking of Betts choices. Wildtime hasn't been posting lately...has mellowed too. Think that nomination for Dept. of Labor should go to JT for outstanding nursing advocacy and understanding of union organization activities and if not accepted then to Jenny P.

    Secretary of Interior goes to P_RN. Knowledgeable about the "inside" of the human body especially neuromuscular and skeleton systems!

    Secretary of Treasurer to Canoehead. Level risky investments there.

    OK already! Remember my learned colleague's that I'm relatively new to this board and as such do accept minimal tweaking if given my choice for Secretary of Education. (lol)

    I confess that there are several parts of this Constitution which I do not at present approve, but I am not sure I shall never approve them. For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged by better information, or fuller consideration, to change opinions even on important subjects, which I once thought right, but found to be otherwise.

    Since I do not find Monica Lewinsky attractive, and would not like dealing with the press (too apt to spout off without thinking) I decline prez nomination, but accept Sec of Treasury. But as is customary you can start the investigation for embezzlement in about 4 y. (Not before then please) and you can contact me on my new beach house in FL.

    NRS Karen should go for education, she is committed to raising concioousness on this board, we should give her a wider audience.

    fiesty gets to be Attorney General I think she has some people to roast on a spit.

    I neglected too establish the 'Parties'(since this is my thread). whereas 2 individual's from each party nominate their candidate whom has no choice as to accepting or not(heehee) and the Sergeant At Arms; I nominate CANOEHEAD; oversee's and keep's account of the nominee's.


    Student = A current student
    Graduate = A first year graduate
    Proctor = Two too Ten Years
    Mentor = Eleven + Years

    All above must be in a Health-Related Field or Work within the confines of same. ie: Dietary in Nursing Home or Hospital, Housekeeping, etc...

    I am a Mentor ( thats 1 Canoehead) lol

    Hum.....parties a good idea but you need a combination of YOUTH and EXPERIENCE to become a true winner!

    Our Mentor catagory would sweep away many of the "TOP" candidates from other parties as it stands now but we need the speed of youth to help that final race at the end before polls close.

    So far Mentors have:
    CEN 35
    NRSKarenRN.......BUT, I could sneak into the Student Party since matriculated in MSN/FNP program!

    Do you really think so with the caliber (Brandy) of students? LPN's, RN's, continuing their ed could also fall in this group but make any changes that you like.
    * See Quote* I'd hoped for a larger[LARGER] turn-out, meeting of the minds so too speak; breaking barriers...
    Don't say it!!! I know...I

    Party Chairpersons (report to Betts) needed to send nominating ballot to Canoehead.....
  14. by   nurs4kids guys are too funny!!

    As I inhaled my cigarette, I nearly choked on my nomination for Surgeon I guess I'd better decline that offer

    Hoola, funny about that Justice Dept nomin. I'm a firm believer in justice and fairness. My husband and best friend are always threatening to KILL me because I can always see both sided of an issue, even if it involves me. I can understand why they feel that<wispers..I don't always admit seeing both sides here, ruins my rep >

    okay, my nominations:
    Secretary of Commerce : kewlnurse..tobacco commerce, that is

    Secretary of Defense out bin laden!

    Secretary of Education: BRANDY, DEFINITELY!!!

    Secretary of Energy: NUR20..did you see what she wants for xmas??

    Secretary of HUD : Suzy..I love her view of welfare.

    Secretary of the Interior : debbye..probably an awesome designer

    Secretary of Labor : kday...her OB skills are

    Secretary of the DOT : NOT dave, he bought a Harley for gods sake!

    Secretary of the Treasury : Who was it that supposedly made $92k working regular time, last year in texas?? I like their math

    Surgeon General : Prn, definitely..a walking anatomy class
    Chief of Staff : Brian..does a good job managing
