    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!!

    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:)

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    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'?

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    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.

    Questioning Pete Buttigieg history?

    Yes, Indeed! Like so many politicians and a few of my former nurse managers; talk but never give a straight answer-obfuscation!

    This is the first priority for sure, then the difficult work must begin of overturning the many destructive policies passed by this administration and restoring much needed environmental protections. Lastly, abolishment of the electoral college, which makes impotent the true will of the voting public.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Department of Justice, Office of Government Ethics, FBI, Inspectors General, White House Counsel's Office, Government Accountability Office, State Attorneys General... Although some of these are offices are advisory and some are investigative, I am gobsmacked that all of them have failed to take action to address this president's egregious, criminal and reprehensible behavior. Then there were the impeachment proceedings which were the epitome of a 'dog and pony show' and an embarrassment to the intelligence and sensibilities of the American people.

    Agree! Not to be too melodramatic but there are indeed many disturbing parallels with our current administration and the totalitarian state of Germany beginning in 1933. The 'boiling frog' scenario comes to mind and somehow seems apropos.

    Questioning Pete Buttigieg history?

    I absolutely agree. If the presidential race eventually comes down to a 'lesser of the evils', almost any candidate would be preferable to the dangerous criminal, megalomaniac GOP incumbent.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Lil Nel, what I personally struggle with and will never, never be able to get my head around, is how Trump could possibly still be in power. Looking beyond all his hate mongering, lies, deceptions, power grabs, scandals, criminal acts, and controversies, how have we, as a nation, allowed this president to remain in office? To me this is the more disturbing and pointed question. Why hasn't some federal regulatory arm removed him or why haven't the citizens all taken to the streets in mass protest? It's all too surreal, like the dream state has become reality, like up is now down, right is left.... Sadly though, the average citizen is so marginalized and disenfranchised in our government today or too busy working two jobs and caring for a family. What to do? Sad:(

    Questioning Pete Buttigieg history?

    While I respect Mayor Pete's service to country and the fact that he is trying to make his way as an openly gay man in the midst of a sometimes hostile and homophobic Penceland (Indiana), I find myself unimpressed with him as a presidential candidate. During the Democratic debates, like a true politician, he repeatedly restated the questions and then proceeded to talk around them, effectively saying nothing substantive or original. I also don't feel that he has the experience or preparedness to run the county but then again, neither did W or DT. Does anyone else feel this way?

    This act was a new low for our country. To give this racist, misogynist, homophobe, lying, Republican tool (Rush Limbaugh) the Congressional Medal of Honor, should be a personal affront and moral outrage for every American-unbelievable. And then there's his handling of Eddie Gallagher, the Navy Seal officer responsible for numerous war crimes, some on innocent noncombatants. Next, he'll be giving some posthumous award to Josef Mengele.
