    arnold speaks pretty well for not having english as his native language. jump on him politically if you disagree with what he stands for or you are opposed to his actions, but not because he was gramatically incorrect. i have much respect for him. he is the american dream. look at where he started, and where he is now. pretty impressive, even if you don't like him.

    I first got my R.N. license. There was a shortage of nurses then.
    In about 1983 there was still a shortage and hospitals were laying off R.N.s.
    For 28 years I have witnessed a constant in the profession, a shortage.
    Today, I work as a clinical instructor for a LVN program. The main reason
    we don't have a greater number of student's is we do not have enough
    instructors. So, as far as I have been able to see this shortage has lasted
    through more Republican administrations than Democrat. And' yes I too am
    sick of those Hollywood types telling me what I need, especially Ronald
    Ragan and Dennis Miller.

    it's spelled ronald "reagan". arnold probably would have written the same thing. i have respect for what you said, i am just pointing out how easy it is to make a grammatic error, just as arnold did. we all do, and english is probably most of our first language.

    If every immigrant to this country could be brought here by Joe Weeder
    they would all live the American Dream. Given a job, place to live and
    possibly all the pot he could smoke, let's not forget the steroids, and all
    he had to do was lift weights and plug his sponsors product. He really worked hard to get ahead.

    We ought to send this thread to Arnie himself. It should be a good wake up call for him. See what is really on Nurses minds!!!! I would love to see his reaction and what he would do about it.

    I wish I believed it would faze him in the least, but believe me, it wouldn't. You should hear some of the stunts he's tried or is trying to pull against police, firefighters and teachers in our state.

    Actually, he freely admits to have smoked pot. Just google Arnie and pot, and you'll get loads of hits.

    My problem with him has nothing to do with smoking pot thirty years ago, but the decisions he's been making in the here and now.
