    President Trump National Scandal

    Rush Limbaugh I don't know about any of you guys but in times of pandemic I would rather have someone lead according to what the experts in science are saying.

    Let me give you the typical response. "And they said Clinton was ahead in the polls when she lost" just so we have it.

    Expected and predictable response talking about the Democrats delaying the process. My post was about the signing and showing a professional and united front when presenting it to the American people. The final version, delays aside was bipartisan. Of course people will complain about any cuts in the future. Duh. After his revenue decreasing and deficit increasing programs people have complained about his proposed budget cuts now. Certainly will in the future. But perhaps he'll be thrown out of office and we won't have to worry about that but we can discuss it next year. Maybe the Tea Party will rise up again and protest the staggering spending package that Republicans voted on 100% and so gleefully presented without Democrats present.

    You're right. She's out of f's to give and showed that when she ripped up his speech.
  5. Good Morning! Thanks for listening yesterday and thanks Stars for the note of support. Back for more today. I'm frustrated we still don't have the parts to do the rapid covid test and we're having to send out but a local hospital with a rapid test is helping us. I really think the patient we had is negative, just a gut feeling, but also frustrated they waited days into her admission to test her instead of at the door. Anyway, hope everyone has a great day. My anxiety level is up, and I'm taking my medication to help sleep, but it's not off the chain up. I'm off the weekend and really not looking forward to the solitude. But these are the times we live in, the cards we are dealt. I'm quite thankful for many many blessings and thinking of those struggling and hurting.
  6. Good morning! Stars, so sorry to hear about Nannie's episode. Herring, glad to hear the gang is doing well bowl movement wise and keeping up with one another. Ted, sounds like you're making the best of a staycation. Loved the music. BC, there's a box at the top of your post and not sure if you were saying anything there, hope you're hanging in there.J22, doesn't sound acceptable that you don't know what you're working. I understand these are strange times, but hopefully they'll be better organized. Not much to report here. Got a lot of housework done yesterday. I enjoyed the quick yoga class and I know enough poses to not have to look up at the screen all that much, but the instructor is some eye candy. The city and county issued a stay-at-home order. We don't have many cases but people are not social distancing properly. It's going to be 90 this weekend and I read on WaPo that heat and humidity may be an unfavorable environment for Covid. Not enough evidence out there but hooray for global warming. 90 is really not the norm for late March. I told best friend that with the stay at home order and me working in a hospital that I would see him on the other side of this. He's such a good influence on me and I'll miss our talks and hope that in solitary my anxiety doesn't get the best of me. Hope everyone has a great day.

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/25/politics/donald-trump-gallup-approval-polling/index.html In times like these I think it happens. George W.'s approval ratings went up to 92% at one point after 9/11. Still, I think Trump really is having a moment and he could really shine and be a good leader if he wasn't Trump. But still happy the country is leaning towards approval. We need confidence right now.

    In the meantime, Trump's approval ratings up. With 60% (not impressive to me, but shocking) approving of how he's handling things. https://news.gallup.com/poll/298313/president-trump-job-approval-rating.aspx?utm_source=twitterbutton&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=sharing

    Trump's Tweet regarding Mitt Romney's negative Covid test. In the middle of this, this is how he behaves.

    Point well taken BC. BF and I take it very seriously even if we aren't in "shelter in place" mode. No further comment. I will most likely if and when I take care of a rule out patient tell BF I won't come over. Our unit is a "clean" one, but things will change. When I was picking up a prescription I saw the CVS had a good supply of TP. I didn't need any so left it for others. Went to the grocery store there and they had a few packs of beans and I am now well stocked and probably won't have to go to the store for a while. Stopped by the beach where a public area right up to the beach was open and there were just a couple of people there maintaining distance and we sat and talked a while. Was nice to get some fresh air and stare at the beach. I did a six mile walk. Did a yoga session that was on Amazon Prime. Not very long but was nice to stretch some with some instruction. I liked the instructor and bought a series of five classes that are a bit more intense than the free one I watched. I hope to keep it up until I can go back to the live classes.

    However, if the feds are sitting on a stockpile of these things they need to release them. But the private industry will see to it they try to fulfill their orders for this stuff as fast as they can, not only because lives on the line, but because they can make money.

    Sorry I was too late, but I edited my response but will stand by what I left.

    We are a capitalistic society and if for sure companies that see green $$$ certainly are going to step it up to meet the demand as fast as they possibly can.

    Good afternoon. Joe, that's too bad about the lay offs. Glad you survived. Herring was does "my sister is doing the OC" mean? Stars, how can 78 degrees possibly be classified as "hot". Sorry you're not feeling well. Dianah, glad the son is improved. BC, glad your friend is maintaining. Seemed like a fair amount of traffic when I got off work. Wonder where everyone was headed. I do know the grocery stores are still mobbed, like people really don't have their supplies by now? Huge lines before they even open and they head straight for the toilet paper aisle. SMH Soon we're going to hear grocery store workers are getting sick. Our Covid-19 patient is on the vent and not doing good. He's much younger than me and had recently been traveling. Apparently the nurses let his wife FaceTime to see him but she can't come in and she's quarantined. How horrifying it must be to see him on a vent and sedated and not be there. The governor suspended elective surgeries are we are now just regular med-surg and telemetry unit. We had only 11 patients when I left. Apparently on my day off they admited a r/o Covid patient to our unit but she was moved to the unit where we are trying to keep them all contained (until there's too many). We can have no visitors. One of my patient's daughters tried to tell she could come in because she was her mother's care giver. I said "you're mother takes care of herself and just broke her leg. Please stay home. I will not allow it." She complied. She was just a nervous nellie and we had a nice long talk about things. Most people are being very good and compliant with the rules. I saw the cutest couple on the parking deck across the street holding up signed "We Love You Dad" "Get Well Soon". Their father was a patient one floor above us in rehab. Such a touching moment in these times. Must be hard not to visit your loved ones in the hospital. Take care guys.

    Okay, I'll give you this. It did slow the spread. My comment was "how did this work out" and it really hasn't worked out well. Not sure we took much advantage of the time to prepare as the news of full of nothing but hospitals and nurses complaining of lack of supplies and preparation. And during the time we could have been preparing it was "this is nothing but a weapon against Trump, their new hoax" and we lost precious time. https://www.theday.com/columnists/20200318/elci-wuhan-flu-more-accurately-names-virus-and-what-it-means I'm not going to bicker over Trump calling it "the China Virus" anymore. Not going to play the blame game anymore either. Trump made some missteps but to say he ignored the disease and did nothing is not true either.
