    Unlike modern Mennonites the cave men, living in conditions where privacy wasn't really possible, had plenty of observable examples. Also, while I sure cavemen had plenty of their own dogma, it was...

  9. Rumors about Jahi coming home are false
    It is so disgusting, embarrassing, and frustrating that things like are allowed to happen. Who cares what her mother rejects and doesn't reject? Why does the mother's opinion matter? If she...

    In my area we have many Mennonites. They receive a decent basic education, but nothing about sex education. Not even "this is how your body works" education. It is completely up to the parents to...

    I got a good chuckle in A&P when a young woman was incredulous to learn that there were three openings to her body in her peri area. The urethra came as a complete surprise to her. She lived to her...

    Wow! You left a paying hospital RN job for 5 months of unemployment then a job at a LTC? I think YOU might be oversensitive. I can understand looking for another job due to the unit culture, but to...

  16. All Men Shift
    I don't disagree. However I do find it very interesting that even in nursing men are paid more on average than women. Significantly more. There was an article in AJN a while back that pointing this...

  18. Nurses Masquerading As Doctors (INSULTING)
    Ya you are right. However there are some checks and balances. In most cases the little guy gets screwed. However with such a blatantly unethical strategy the hospital is really hanging it's butt on...
