    Presidential Election 2020

    I really hate that it's this early and I'm sure it won't get much talk until the time approaches, but lets get it started anyway. First turning backwards to the invention of the political meme 15 years ago with Howard Deans scream. LOL https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/meet-the-press/howard-dean-s-scream-turns-15-its-impact-american-politics-n959916?fbclid=IwAR0kAJcaY8YxTlci_Yga0QJ63MmqeFniIvS487N9nHwYqHJ021gpcppuwrQ

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    Definitely a Trump cheerleading article. But it's an opinion piece. Wasn't she stunning in her sleeveless dress as reported by right wing media? https://dailycaller.com/2019/03/18/kimberly-guilfoyle-stuns-in-sleeveless-yellow-dress-during-palm-beach-trip/ Oh but https://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=6986019&page=1

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    Ignore the quote above, I meant to quote SCDude. Is there one person on this thread that they say they are wishing the economy to fail? We want the President defeated in 2020 but not one person on this thread are saying they want the President and thus the economy to fail.

    Media behaving badly

    Not sure about this source, but speaking of propaganda. As a world traveler myself I do CNN and no they don't focus on how "great America is" but do seem to report the stories going on more on a world focus than US focus. I mostly watch BBC World and they seem to do the same, rather than focus on how great Britain is they just report what's going on around the world. I'm not sure about this source though, but I'm putting it out there. https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-suggests-us-should-form-state-run-global-news-network-2018-11?fbclid=IwAR0u88ciKvVNwoaR4QySatmiNf4K_JRUl_NeO8ZiBR8MJz-1KPQS-P0oKi4&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=topbar&utm_term=desktop&referrer=facebook
  6. Ted, what a blessing it is to be so loved, with loved ones so close. Thanks for sharing your experience. I wish you peace in the coming days and months. Working my "bad week". Got a lot done yesterday, not sure what I'm walking into. Census was a bit low last week due to surgeons going on vacation and Spring breaks.

    Media behaving badly

    I think that lies the problem "Fox News" of all sources is calling other news sources biased when they are nothing but a wing on the right wing Republican Party and President Trump. It seems that's part of their agenda to show that Trump is good and other news sources are biased and even fake news. What one could call biased, another would call "reporting the truth". I have to agree with the sentiment that NYT and Washington Post, and even CNN are decided anti-Trump by reported TRUE more often that not that paint Trump in a negative light in both news and analysis/opinion pieces. He gives them so much to work with on a daily basis that it can hardly be ignored. Both sources have over the years have looked at what's going on politically and in the White House for many years and have reported it and analyzed it for good for bad. Are they reporting things that wouldn't have been reported years ago? Sure, but Trump is pretty unique in how he behaves. Never before has a President re-tweeted Fox News so much, and perhaps never before has NYT and Washington Post been no negative. Neither perhaps are false in their reporting.

    My sincere condolences to Ted at the loss of his father. Glad you made the decision to spend more time with him these days not knowing it would be so close to the end. Big fat hugs and love. Nel, sometimes I hear complaints of "nothing being done" such as the tech that always called in on my Sunday, and what we don't see behind the scenes is they are adding nails to the coffin and documenting. The key is to not be silent and hopefully eventually behavior will change or justice will occur. Good for those nurses for standing up for themselves. If you remember I made a stink a few weeks ago that I told a doctor we didn't have a nurse to take his admissions that day and I wasn't taking any. A tech and an RN appeared later, but I was chastised for telling the doctor this. No worries. Not sure how it is in Kentucky I think if you show up with the intent to take an assignment, even if you refuse it, it's abandonment if you leave. Unions don't help. We need a national ratio law and they need to stick it and if this means not taking admissions they aren't staffed for just because it brings the investors money too bad. Don't me started. Joe, good luck with everything. Today is the usual Tuesday off. Floor cleaning, laundry, yoga, cooking. I actually enjoy the day of solitude. I forgot my bowling ball last night at bowled horrible with a house ball the first game but better the last two which we won. Have a great day.

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    You have to look at it from Trump supporter's view and how and where they get their news. https://video.foxnews.com/v/6015541493001/#sp=show-clips
  10. I thought I would create a thread where we can talk about what he's currently up to. No particular topic but one that's ongoing with what he's doing and saying. I'll start with this speech on Black History Month. Seemed very narcissistic, immature and disjointed. He went off topic to make a slam against CNN and their "fake news". Trump used a Black History Month speech to talk about himself, how he did with black voters, and CNN - Vox

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    To continue since the time to edit is past. I was talking to a patient watching Fox News, he was signing some bill, actually she talked and I listened "I like Trump, he gets things done and all Obama did was play golf and ruin the county". She really didn't know that Trump has played more golf and that Obama left the country in pretty good shape for Trump. It's not my place to ruin my rapport with patients and speak truthfully. When what a distorted version of reality all because she watches Fox News.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I'm looking at Trump's Twitter and dozens of tweets are merely re-tweets of Fox News. If one could look back years ago at my posts here when Obama first became President and I saw the negativity Fox News threw his way, I fully understood they are a wing of the Republican Party and how powerful they were. Never before have I realized how true that is until Trump got elected. Obviously it's my opinion and how I see the world. https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/17/media/donald-trump-fox-news-media/index.html

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    I've said it before, as long as the economy keeps going as it's it Trump will reap the benefits. He can look all heroic and demand GM keep plants open (those people have jobs elsewhere in GM and it is a free market capitalist economy isn't it?), and and toot his own horn. Rightly so I suppose. https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/18/politics/cnn-poll-trump-economy-tech/index.html

    Good Morning! Joe, hope you don't have a crazy day and the interviews get situated well. It's a bit chilly for this this time of year. Only 61 at 9:00AM and barely going to make it to 70. Been readying about the flooding up north, so I won't complaint. I'm back to feeling normal. Went to hot yoga last night and have been eating well. Got a bit done this morning already. Cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen and finished mowing the back yard. Other goals include going to the gym and doing some laundry. Bowling is tonight. Hope everyone has a great day.

    Presidential Election 2020

    That's a big one. My very religious aunt says it's the #1 issue with her. She doesn't care about anything else Trump does but she can't vote for anyone that would kill a baby after it's born. My tongue is still bleeding from biting it.

    Don't forget the "they are coming after your guns and you may as well stockpile guns now" fear based rhetoric. Also the "socialism never works" angle.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    A couple of rants against SNL, a comedy variety show. Which is all over the place suggesting the FEC or FCC look into collusion with the Democrats and Russia. Again with the idea of fake news and of course tooting his own horn because he's winning. All over a comedy variety show, that he calls "one sided media coverage", that other Presidents have ignored or laughed at.

    Media behaving badly

    In a series of Tweets President Trump obviously is siding with the TV hosts despite even Fox News pre-empting Judge Pirro's show amid the controversy. Not even mentioning that there might be a problem with their stance or what they've said, but it's just fake news media trying to take them down. This is the President of the United States.

    Good Morning! Herring, I enjoyed the video of John Denver and Perlman. Two faves. Joe sounds like a good day. Glad your nephew did well and that you were there to support him. BC, exhausted hearing about your projects. I want a new kitchen in the worst way but have to start over saving it since I just spent all my money on those damn dental bills, air conditioner and water heater. It's always something. But al lest I'm out of debt. Glad that you can support your community with a vigil because we all are one. NSIME, short term memory deficits in the elderly can be something. I took care of a 95 year old man this week just like that. Kept asking the same questions, kept pulling off his hip dressing and multiple IVs. "Oh I'm in the hospital? Why am I here? Where are my clothes" over and over. I called the building he lived in spoke to management, it's an senior only apartment place but independent living. They said he had no next of kin on record for many years. He told me he was married twice and had no children and outlived all eight of his siblings. Two MDs had to sign his surgery was medically necessary. I would presume with 8 siblings he would at a niece or nephew or several but no one ever came around and he was alone. One neighbor came by who drove him to the store for groceries begged us not to send him home. Social worker had to use some sort of "social worker decision" to place him in a nursing home. The apartment (of which he remembered his address well) said he was not allowed to come back as his place was a total disaster and he couldn't live alone. Such a sad situation. Also took care of a 86 year old dementia that did the same thing in keeping track of her son's every move.. "Where is Ed?" her son who was by her side much of the time "I'm right here", but had to leave to work after two days. Occasionally she would ask for her deceased husband. Personally, I'm not getting old. Felling well, just still tired. Can't shake this fatigue. Slept another 12 hours off and on. I should be totally rested but am not. Hopefully, I'll perk up as the day goes on. No big plans but would like to tackle mowing the back yard.
  21. Agree with everything. It was her that said "The Left pretending I inspired a mosque massacre..." I will say the left is strongly reacting to the massacre, so I suppose it's important for the right to make the left look silly to spin it to say we blame her.
  22. I don't think people are really blaming Trump or Owens for the shootings in New Zealand, anymore than Jodi Foster can be blamed for the shooting or Regan by one of her fans, but is embarrassing to think about our President was mentioned in such a manifesto of hate as an inspiration. I'm also not liking how Trump is handling the situation. He really should have sounded a bit more tough as when he talks about how Christian persecutions and massacres should stop. He's the representative of us ALL and words matter.

    Saturday 3/16

    Nel, shocking they would fire the sleeping good tech but not the lazy one. Maybe the good one has been written up for this before? Hope work treats you well. Ted, don't let me be your inspiration. I worked three weeks of overtime an feel like crap. Have a good shift. Joe, glad that job opportunities are on the horizon. Good luck. Dianah, that is an amazing amount of support for the injured man. Hope he continues to improve. Hering, Perlman is so talented. I used to listen to a lot of classic music in the 90's and liked him. I've moved on back to listening to pop/dance music which has always been my favorite. BC, enjoy the day. I think I would have opted out of going to the airport that early as well. I was in bed a whopping 15 hours. Went to bed with a fever but it's broke and I'm feeling better. Still fatigued. 2nd time this season this has happened. I'm sure working overtime under stressful conditions didn't help matters. Today I'm just giving myself permission to do nothing. But do have to wash the sheets and will putz about some. Hope everyone has a great day.

    I think I'm just about at the end of my rope...

    I went to counseling a couple of years ago and I remember saying the same thing "I should be happy....but I'm not, I'm anxious and depressed". I'm not saying you need counseling but that it brings back memories. I think the first step is doing what you're doing and just acknowledging and accepting these as they are. You husband sounds depressed from his pain and illness but he has to be the one to take care of that. Start simple and just think of one thing you can change, or one thing you can add to make your life less stressful. Just one simple thing like going for a walk, taking your kids to the movies. Reaching out to your family and planning something. I know you're just venting and not looking for advice. Good luck with everything. I think we all come to a point in life where we stop and reflect and don't always like what we see. All the best.

    Good evening. Had a long and tiring 3 day stretch but glad it's over. Clocked in about 50 hours this week. No more overtime. I'm feeling horrible, like I've been hit by a truck.
