    Impeachment

    Senate and House Republicans, as well as Trump supporters, don't care if he broke laws or engaged in extortion. They don't mind that he turns his back on our allies, cozies up to dictators who assassinate their citizens and who most definitely don't believe in democracy, or tells lies on a daily, prolific basis. It must be because they don't care about truth or morals or respecting the constitution (unless a Democrat is in power, and then it's suddenly important to them). They don't care if he hires white supremacists or homophobes to direct policy or if nearly everyone who surrounds the president is implicated in crimes or quits because they can't in good conscience work for such a corrupt administration. They don't care if rogue soldiers commit atrocities-in fact, many go on to cheer when these war criminals are pardoned. They don't mind if the president says former POWs are not heroes because true heroes "don't get caught". That's because they don't really value the actual sacrifices made by principled and loyal soldiers, no matter how loudly they scream when black athletes take a knee. They obviously don't mind that the same person who said POWs are not heroes never served because he paid someone to manufacture a bogus physical condition to help him avoid service. The only reason I can come up with for why so many people are not only tolerant of this man, but support and cheer any act of this president, no matter how despicable, is that they share these values. Many must also be racists, homophobes, and selfish isolationists; they must be people who go about their lives "taking liberty with the truth" on the regular, so none of this seems out of whack to them. There is no way a person could be okay with all of this unless they are also lacking in the same principles of honesty, morality, and humanity. Like attracts like, and here we have our reason why anyone would support an administration that so brazenly engages in lawlessness, corruption, hypocrisy, and greed.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I don't think it's particularly notable that he had an unscheduled doctor's visit. We all have to head to the doc now and then when something pops up. Doesn't mean it's anything significant.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Your post is so disingenuous. You refer to Obama's "lie," but say that Trump "takes liberties with the truth." No, he LIES. On a daily basis. Anyone who tries to sugarcoat lying by using any other language is being dishonest themselves. And no, when he says he will do something I absolutely cannot "take it to the bank." He has made promises he hasn't kept. He waffles back and forth on various issues. And beyond all that, he is completely and utterly morally bankrupt.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    As to corruption, watching this crapshow that is the Trump administration and certain members of the GOP is like watching an episode of Hoarders. There is so much to wade through, you really don't know where to begin, and you're certainly not sure where it all ends. This is the "outrage fatigue" that has benefited Trump. Under every rock is a scandal/outrage/violation of law and constitution. Where does one even begin to prioritize?
  6. Don't think I'm reading anything into what he's saying as those were his words; plus when you start a thread on a message board you are literally inviting comment, and not everyone will see things the same way. But, as I'm NPO today for a procedure, starving and dealing with a headache from no caffeine, I'm perfectly willing to admit it's possible I'm just being a grump.:D
  7. Did I say it was "a problem?" :)
  8. Right...you've been married for 11 years. This sounds like a girl he knows from work who "doesn't want to date" him, correct?
  9. my own husband of 23 years doesn't know what i'm thinking 80% of the time, and we are very close. this is a girl you know but have not dated, correct? that statement strikes me as a little odd and creepy. maybe it's because i'm npo for a procedure later in the day and haven't had my morning coffee, but i'm not seeing the charm in this post as those before me have. though i must say you must be quite infatuated if you even like the way she picks her nose.:eek:

    Can a fat nurse be a good nurse?

    I find it interesting that most people have no trouble acknowledging that the skinny, sedentary guy/gal that we all know who eats like a pig and never gains an ounce "just has good genes," or "a fast metabolism," but many of these same people will deny until they are blue in the face that the opposite could be true as well. Apparently genes, hormonal imbalances, and individual metabolism only applies to the "naturally skinny" folks. I've always been fairly thin, and while I try to exercise and eat right, I don't fool myself that I am somehow just more disciplined than my heavier friends. It's just the way my body is naturally wired. I can influence it to a small degree one direction or another with lifestyle choices, but for the most part, my weight has a "set point" that it wants to maintain.

    Can a fat nurse be a good nurse?

    Improper staffing is the source of most of the serious problems in health care facilities, imo. With proper staffing, you would have improved morale, health, and RETENTION of quality nurses. Improved staffing would result in better patient outcomes, fewer errors, and huge gains in patient satisfaction. I could go on and on, but the powers that be are shooting themselves in the foot by thinking in the short term (immediate cost cutting) rather than investing in their future by paying for adequate, quality staff.

    To All the Heavy Nurses

    there is no proof in the research that high cholesterol causes heart disease. sounds crazy, right? well, the more i read, the more disgusted i get with the way research has been presented to the public. if you look at the data, patients with heart disease have cholesterol numbers all across the board: high, low, average. also not ever proven in the data is that saturated fat consumption causes high cholesterol or heart disease. if you can get heart disease regardless of your cholesterol level and saturated fat intake, then it seems pretty obvious that cholesterol is not the causative factor in heart disease. more and more it is appearing that inflammation may be the problem. even the famous jupiter study, whose grand results were completely exaggerated by astrazeneca (the maker of crestor and sponsor of the study), admitted that it was some mechanism affecting inflammation, and not cholesterol levels, which explained the statin crestor's effect on heart disease, mild though it was. there are two books written by esteemed cardiologists out right now which both debunk the cholesterol myth: the great cholesterol con by dr. malcom kendrick and the cholesterol delusion by ernest n. curtis, m.d. so yeah, eat your butter. it has no effect on cholesterol or your heart, and contains no dangerous trans fats.

    Darn. The link no longer works. She must have had quite a reaction to her video.

    Ever since he went into histrionics over his hemorrhoidectomy complications and subsequent "mistreatment" by ER staff, I have had a hard time taking him seriously on any subject.:rolleyes:

    Every time he did the Deep Throat "follow the money" thing I just about died laughing. Yes, it's a lot of "food for though.":p I just keep on reading more. I want to know the truth.
