Arnold Schwartzneiger says "We need to create more nurses" - page 3

What are we objects? When he announced last night that he would be running for Governor again he said he was running again because "we need to create more ER Rooms, more hospitals, more nurses". I am... Read More

    I don't think people should be blaming him because of a misunderstanding of the English language. Come on now! He has, or supposed to have, some good people working for him. Obviously not. They should be checking all of his speeches and press releases before it makes him look like an idiot.What he is doing is far too late and honestly I don't know what his agenda is. He has constantly alienated himself from a variety of groups and he digs his grave everyday deeper. I, for one, can't understand why he is wasting his and Californias time in running again. I just hope someone jumps in there and gives him a run for his money.

    Quote from Nathalie
    ...................................There's a reason why there is a Nurse shortage and I think that a big part of it has to do with the fact that
    half of the people that want to become nurses are on a waiting list somewhere.
    Those waiting to become nurses, and those in school to become nurses, are the ones who may eventually become a part of the total population of nurses. The TRUE nurse shortage comes from our country NOT utilizing those of us who are ALREADY Licensed Nurses in this country. I think all of us who are already licensed and having a difficult time landing a job in our hospitals should protest as a group showing our physical presence and lending our voice to the nation so they can visualize just how many already licensed nurses are desiring jobs as nurses, yet are not getting hired.

    Many of America's hospitals deliberately choose to continue ignoring America's licensed nurses cries to work as nurses in their hospitals. Why? They know that we know the cost of hiring experienced nurses, and we both know why they continue to recruit nurses from overseas countries rather than fill those positions with nurses already living in this country. The greenback (dollar bill) is the ONLY reason this is being done.

    Excellent point


    Twice as many Californians move to AZ each year than Arizonans moving to CA. I wish they weren't moving here, myself.
    Californians are also moving to Colorado in record numbers. When I lived in Colorado a few years ago, I heard more residents of that state complain about the cost of their housing and living expenses increasing due to the influx of Californians to their state.

    I'm also hearing people complain about the new residents their states are acquiring due to being displaced severely by Hurricane Katrina. This is the saddest case of complaints ever because these people did not ask to be relocated to any other state. How selfish can those people be?

    Having choices in life can be a good thing, and having choices in life can be the cause of our own downfall. We can't blame Arnie for being goofy. I didn't vote for him for any office, and I never will. I do not believe he should have had the right to hold any office in this country due to him not being born, raised, and educated in America. Many may disagree with me on this, but that's okay to disagree........this IS America afterall.

    Yep, I can sympathize. It sucks that now that I'm done with school and just beginning to start about thinking of buying a house, the prices are insane .... they can't even build houses fast enough, you have to be put in a lottery to even be considered for a house.

    Awww....thank ya dahlin! :kiss It's rough finding a job that doesn't suck the very life out of me. All I'm offered (when I get an offer) is twelve hour nights which I absolutely cannot do anymore. I tried it recently and stayed sick sick sick....not worth risking my health status over. So, I'm still applying for dayshift or part time evenings or clinics. I won't give up! I can't give up!

    Off topic-ish, but this audience will probably understand why I find this magazine title puzzling. Ds is selling mags for school and there is a title available called "Nursing Made Incredibly Easy". Huh?!

    My ex MIL bought a house in AZ for 56,000, new, in 1992 and sold it in 1999 for 114,000.

    That increase was due to the tripling in size of that city by exoding Californians.

    Quote from ZASHAGALKA
    California is so far over its head w/ its desires for rights without responsibilities that no Gov could be successful.

    California:

    Wants all the gas and electricity it needs - but it wants all the other states to produce it and sell it to them below costs. No oil platforms off its coast - that's what the Gulf of Mexico is for. No refineries here.

    Wants to tax evil business high amounts of money to finance all its schemes - but can't understand why Arizona is the fastest growing State in the Union. (hint: California business exodus)

    Wants to be at the vanguard of changing society (stem cell research, gay marriage, illlegal alien rights, environmentaliist extremism, on and on) but can't understand why it's budget is nigh bankrupt.

    California's problem isn't its Gov - it's the idea that social consciousness and 'not in my backyard' mentality combined w/ its malicious anti-business philosophy creates a huge demand on tax dollars while at the same time denying the tax base an opportunity to expand.

    Somebody once gave me a great definition of poliltics: politics is a discussion about the allocation of resources. Just about every political calculation comes down to that.

    That being the case, the demands of the citizens of California dictate an impossible political situation.

    I said this in another thread recently: Arnold says that there aren't enough nurses to enforce the ratios, nurses throw fits. Arnold says we need more nurses, nurses throw fits.

    If you're gonna throw a fit EVERY TIME HE OPENS HIS MOUTH, then people will stop trying to figure out what you think is really worth debating.

    I'm not California bashing. And California isn't the only state where the government overpromises so that the elected officials that comprise the government can get elected. Shoot, look at the National Government, regardless the party in charge.

    All I'm saying is, what did you expect of ANY GOV when the citizens have a mentality of 'we want everything except the burdens that come with having everything'.

    Of course, Arnold knew all this going in. But so should have the citizens of the Rep of Calif.

    The only thing is, all the stuff Tim posted was wanted by the majority of Californians and voted for. So that does make a statement. . . . Not the tiny minority in my county of course. All us farmers and loggers -

    steph

    I'm sure there are lots of farmers and loggers in California. I know there are lots of farmers and loggers in the southern and midwestern areas of these United States. They do not all share your political beliefs.

    I saw your post earlier in the thread essentially saying how it would be better for California to be divided into North and South, because "our needs are different". I have to say that is pretty silly. Using that logic, you should just move to an area where farmers and loggers are the majority, I guess.

    And no I am not from California. In fact I live in Louisiana, and I *gasp* don't like particularly like Mardi Gras, seafood, or driving behind log trucks. An enigma, I tell you.....

    There are plenty of people in Northern California who oppose logging and were against succession. Don't forget that San Francisco is the most populated city in that part of the state, and as a group, their sympathies run decidely more towards the anti-logging constituency.
