    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Don't Vote "Blue No Matter Who", Vote Anti-Establishment No Matter Who I was so disgusted after the DNC's successful, traitorous campaign to defeat Bernie Sanders and foist a second tier candidate such as Joe Biden on party supporters, that I had to distance myself from politics for a while. Come November, although Biden will certainly be the 'lesser of the evils', let's not delude ourselves into believing that he is anything but a mediocre, corporate politician for which considerable doubt exist regarding his mental capacity to conduct office. I suggest instead that we unite in bringing back our long absent middle class, protecting our most vulnerable populations, and wresting our basic freedoms back from the wealthy, privileged oligarchs-vote Anti-Establishment!!

    What do you INTENSELY DISLIKE?

    I intensely HATE that the wealthy and celebrities have access to COVID-19 testing while the rest of us have nothing!

    Impeachment

    Maybe for the same reason(s) that the Mueller investigation results were kept off limits and how the numerous Trump scandals and controversies have been effectively buried by his fixers.

    What do you INTENSELY DISLIKE?

    His impetus for doing so (lifting restrictions) is motivated less by his concern for the nations' health and more by his upcoming reelection bid and the fact that six of his highest grossing properties have been shuttered due to the pandemic.

    Presidential Election 2020

    I don't refer to COVID-19 as "Trump's virus". I refer to Trump himself as a virus, infecting America and causing disease, upheaval, and unrest!

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Statistical trends are often misinterpreted, skewed, or fail altogether to factor in important variables that play pivotal roles in depicting the country's true economic picture. Sadly, the lived reality for many Americans does not reflect such a 'rosy' picture of financial security and millions are left behind, struggling to just live hand to mouth. Trump's economic policies, by and large, have not been favorable for the middle class. Even if our economy was as robust as the Trump cult believes, with all of the environmental depredations, what will be left of the earth for future generations?

    'Successful' is a relative term and I'm curious what your definition might be? As I see it, the hallmarks thus far of his administration are; having colluded with foreign despots, having reversed a number of significant environmental protections, having gutted important regulatory agencies and social programs that serve as safety nets for our most vulnerable citizens, appointed high level positions to completely incompetent, GOP campaign donors-i.e. Betsy DeVos, Gordon Sondland (which compromise our national security), failed diplomacy, and generally acting with a complete lack of civility or decorum. 'Successful'? Sure, in the cult of Trump or to one of his many sycophant plants?

    After watching Trump's speaking engagements and hearing his many comments, early on, I made up my mind that this man is a dim bulb. He comes as uninformed, inarticulate, coarse, confused, and honestly, just dumb-such an embarrassment to our country.

    Yes! I feel that any reported uptick in the economy or in the national employment numbers, are either happenstance or are spill over effects from previous administrations. I'm not convinced that DJT, having lost millions, filed bankruptcy numerous times, and been involved in the establishment of a sham university, has any real business acumen, diplomacy, or negotiation skills. 'Art of the Deal"; What a fraud! All this man has is a lot of money and 'fixers' at his disposal.

    Leaving Nursing?

    Thank you No Stars-your response actually helps a lot! Though it’s certainly hard work, I think it would I would much prefer bagging groceries, stocking shelves, sorting mail...for a change and not have the constant worry/stress of caring for sick patients. I thought I was the only one!

    Leaving Nursing?

    I know this topic is sometimes addressed on the yellow side, but asking here; Does anyone ever think of transitioning out of nursing altogether to another career/job? Do you personally know of or heard of any nurses who have? In five-six years, though I won't quite be at retirement age, I'm seriously thinking of hanging up my hat and doing something completely unrelated. Then, I'll have been an RN for almost 35 years and although I've been blessed and nursing has been pretty good to me, I'm tired and really think I would prefer something else that is less stressful, more predictable, and that I don't take home with me. I know that my salary (and likely my Social Security) will take a hit and not sure I could afford it but....? Ideas...thoughts...regrets?

    Older nurses chasing the carrot

    Hi Ted and thank you for the welcoming response. Like you, I would also love to retire sooner rather than later and enjoy whatever time I have left. Though I don't have any definitive plans, I do have several ideas that I am considering. The first would be that I could go back to travel nursing again but this time, taking long stretches off in between assignments. That being said though, I've kind of grown tired of nursing and all of the responsibility, stress, and worry. Though no career is perfect, I find myself dreaming of a mundane, predictable job that I didn't take home with me every night...barista, stocking shelves, mail delivery..... I stay with nursing because of the money and insurance but if Universal Healthcare were ever implemented, it would be an absolute game changer! Though somewhat radical, there's always retiring and becoming an ex pat in a country with a cheaper cost of living and where the dollar goes further. At any rate, good luck with your plans and keep us informed:)

    Doesn't it just speak volumes that a repeated draft dodger (5 military deferments), ridicules a Purple Heart decorated veteran (Lt. Col Vindman) about his manner of dress and speaking? Just one example of many of his being completely unfit for office. My question; as leader in chief, doesn't all of this collectively rise to the level of 'conduct unbecoming'?

    Sadly, hoping for another, albeit sham, impeachment, is pie in the sky. With DJT's wealth, power, and influence, I don't believe there are any actions (crimes) that his fixers couldn't make go away and now he's been emboldened and validated thanks to his GOP criminal accomplices.
