    As someone who tries to be impartial and to abstain from judgment without the facts, I can tell you on the surface, based on commentary and overall demeanor, Donald Trump is an embarrassment. He may not be the man he portends, but I can tell you that his lack of reserve will cost us greatly if we elect him to represent us. He is foul, misogynistic, narcissistic and closed-minded. Make no mistake: he's dangerous. Never trust someone who prefaces every line with "believe me" or refers to himself in third person.
    "United we stand; divided we fall." No truer words were uttered. He is divisive.
    HRC, though flawed, is far preferable to the tyrant that challenges her.
    I wonder. If elected, would he refer to himself as "The POTUS" in speeches?

    Not really

    Just look at the dude who got elected President of Philippines. He was just a mayor who ran is city with and Iron Fist, You commit a crime you die.

    Now he has been elected President in a landslide by promising to eliminate Crime, drugs and poverty in his country. He still is trying to live a simple life.
    Oh you mean this guy...

    Philippines rape joke candidate: I will never apologize - CNN.com

    Philippines presidential front-runner refuses to apologise for rape remarks

    Rodrigo Duterte Sorry for Calling Pope 'Son of a Whore'

    The man made an ugly joke about a female Australian missionary who was gang raped and subsequently murdered and called Pope Francis "a son of a *****" (<------- rhymes with boar). I'm amazed at and worried about how undiscerning and easily swayed voters can be by a "charismatic" candidate who makes a lot of noise and promises to take a tough stance if they're elected. A large part of the population in the Philippines professes to Catholicism, I would have thought that comment about The Pope would have dampered the enthusiasm regarding the presidential candidate.

    Well, perhaps he was elected on his tough-on-crime policy, although it seems that some crimes are "joke-worthy".

    I can't help but notice that this complete lack of social filter, bouts of verbal diarrhea and a blatant lack of respect for women, does remind me of another presidential candidate.





    About how the media presents Donald Trump, They don't actually have to do anything. The man opens his mouth and speaks. I hear what he says. That's more than enough.

    I've thought a lot about all the "out-there" things that man has said during various speeches and interviews. I have to wonder if he himself actually even believes half of the stuff he spouts, or if his just figured out an effective way to mobilize a large part of the voters. It just seems to me that he fulfills some sort of need with the angry and miscontent masses.

    Regarding Hillary Clinton having said something disparaging about nurses.
    I won't believe it until I see some form of real evidence. I don't know the woman and I don't have a clue how she regards nurses, but she does strike me as having a filter. So no, I don't think that she'd consider it a politically advantageous thing to say, regardless of her personal position on the subject.

    In any case ANA does diddly squad for nurses and prevents anything real being done by discouraging nurses from getting unionized. Join a union.

    Lol. I am not for or against Hilary either, but the fact is that there is no reputable source backing up that quote.

    There is legal documentation, however, that Donald Trump has been accused of sexual assault against women including minors on multiple occasions. But please vote for the tough guy. He knows what to do.

    I was referring to Micheal Brown, the person who robbed and then tried to take a cops gun. Just a FYI
    Incorrect. There is no evidence that Michael Brown "tried to kill" the officer (per your previous statement). There is evidence that the officer was in fear for his life and evidence that the officer was well within reason when he thought Brown was grabbing for his gun. The jury agreed that the officer acted in fear for his life. We will apparently never know whether Michael Brown was actually grabbing for the gun, and certainly it can't be assumed that he was "trying to kill" the officer.

    It's a shame what the media has done to him. if you listened to his speech, which you probably don't, you'll recognize that that is far from the truth.
    Nope, you are wrong about me. I get my impression of his racism, sexism, and bigotry from his own mouth. I have watched his hate-filled speeches at nausea while he spoke to many unedited press conferences and I watched his half-butt attempt at a RNC convention and know him for who he is....

    So, maybe you should think more about how your information...? By the way, our country is already great and becoming greater through diversity. We do not need a totalitarian dictator/ strong-man to take us back to the days of old! The past was not not the good-old days.

    I am seeing that I have been misquoted twice. I did not write that everything is documented online. If you will read my statement again, I said that not everything is documented online. And by the way, I am not "for or against" Hillary. To be truthful, I don't like either candidate. They both have a track record of lying and cheating their way to the top. Not impressed by either candidate. It was not my intent to make this a political stand, only answering a question.
    Are to trying to say that propagating a lie about a presidential candidate is not taking "a political stand"?

    Why bother to start the thread, then?

    On the contrary, there is criticism from some in BLM because they felt more time was spent praising police than critiquing, or discussing police reform. Note that while there is BLM support for Clinton, there was also a BLM protest outside the convention.

    I'm not sure what the point of the rest of your post was. Yes, it was black mothers onstage, that's obvious and no one would deny it. What I took exception to was your description of "black criminals who tried to kill the police" when "criminals who tried to kill the police" would have been sufficient, though still untrue.

    There's also no one who denies that the killers who shot police in Dallas and Baton Rouge were black. What I and anyone else who listens will deny is that BLM advocates for anyone to kill police.

    If you look at the DNC so far they have had illegal aliens speaking on stage, and also mothers of black criminals who tried to kill the police speaking on stage. It sure would of been nice to see mothers of fallen police officers who were just recently killed in Dallas or Baton Rouge.
    None of those people were mothers of "black criminals who tried to kill the police". Even the police departments don't claim that. "Black criminals"? Because "black" criminals are worse than "white" criminals?

    I doubt the mothers of the fallen police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge are interested in attending a celebration event, scant weeks after their children were killed. The "Mothers of the Movement," as they call themselves, are not somehow in opposition to the families of the police officers. Inviting them is not a slap in the face to the others.

    And since this is a political thread... I doubt Donald Trump of today who is a sexist bigot born with a silver spoon in his mouth, has any respect for nurses. Especially since many of us are female, work for a living, people of color, and/or were not born to the upper echelons of this society.
    It's a shame what the media has done to him. if you listened to his speech, which you probably don't, you'll recognize that that is far from the truth.

    If "everything is documented online," please provide some kind of documentation of this statement by Ms. Clinton, other than the memories of a few people (who apparently don't like her to begin with). People "remember" all kinds of things, and memory is known to be very plastic. I was around then, a nurse, and a long-time "politics wonk," and I don't recall hearing anything about her saying anything like that.
    I was going to make a similar comment. Thank you!

    This is just great, unions suck, get rid of unions, sure, and the old retired nurses who worked a union job and paid into their pension can lose their pension check and become homeless. The young generation as usual, not bothering to consider the elder. Hows about when you bop into work tomorrow you lay down the law to the nurses close to retirement? Look old lady, screw you, no pension, too bad! These ARE people who collect those pension checks. And oh yes, Ill expect the chapter and verse about finances and the facts on pensions being too expensive....good luck, youngsters, I hope you are FEEDING that 401k every single check, you're going to need the money....

    Can someone tell me what a new grad (May '05) nurse can expect to make in different areas of Virginia, and who are the best employers to work for (in your opinion, of course)? Thanks.

    (I now realize this topic might not be appropriate for an open forum, so please feel free to email me at jeanette.shaver@verizon.net. Thank you!!)
    I think the topic is appropriate for an open forum. The Hospitals don't want you to know what each other make$. The hospital I just left in Arlington had new grads starting at about $23/h. up from $21. I didn't see any gender bias or any other bias for pay. Also, their night diff and weekend diff's were, on the whole, quite nice @ $4 each. Plus they have an in-house registry which allows you extra shifts at $10 bonus rate. The money is very nice, but it won't make you happy. My coworkers were the best part of my job.

    All the more reason for them to join the Food Service Workers Union and SEIU and organize for a living wage and benefits.

    The biggest welfare recipient in the US is WalMart via foodstamps and Medicaid paid to their employees.
