Loss of all personal freedom. - page 8
I am just wondering but as a veteran who fought for his country. Then went to college to become a nurse. How does everyone feel about the loss of personal freedom in healthcare. Hospitals that test... Read More
May 14"Skinheads" here where I live are really "only" shaved-headed, tattoo'd, tobacco-spittin', beer-swilling, Bubba-Rednecks. Granted they are not an especially fun crowd to be around en masse; they do have some of the same prejudices as the neo-nazi's, but I don't think they are as quite as extreme as those White Power Militias. Mostly mouthy morons of breath-taking ignorance, minus the organization power. Still could be dangerous, for sure, if boozed up, but as individuals, overall, fairly spineless.
May 14Quote from RunnerlivesThere ain't enough of us to go around.So when all employees in this country have to be female 20 to 30 year olds and weight 125lbs with blonde hair and blue eyes cause it's apealin to the person doing the hiring and it looks professional. Your good with that?
May 15Quote from FlatlineThat's true. However, how many people think of "good" skin heads when mentioned?Please do not confuse skin-head for neo-Nazi, different subcultures. Some skinheads may be neo-Nazis but not all and definitely not the majority. Most are apolitical but there is a very large group who are far left anarchists, socialists, or even anti-fascist.
I'm willing to bet not many.

May 15Your personal freedoms are not being taken away. You have the freedom to do as you see fit, and live a lifestyle you see fit..
Your personal freedom does not include working ANYWHERE you wish. You have to follow the rules policies, and regulations of each jobsite.
Do not like the policies? Work somewhere else.
May 15Quote from st3muellerExcept the Voting Rights Act which made poll taxes and literacy tests illegal wasn't passed until 1965.Correct.
"In 1960, when I came out of prison as an ex-convict, I had more freedom under parolee supervision than there's available to an average citizen in America right now... God almighty, what have we done to each other?" ~ Merle Haggard, an American country singer
The youth doesn't know what freedom means. They are too accustomed to being bound to know the difference.
Betty Friedan didn't publish The Feminine Mystique - which detailed the repression of women outside of the domestic sphere - until 1963.
Kent State was in 1970.

May 17How can you expect a patient to follow your advice to not smoke and maintain a healthy weight, if you don't yourself. We set examples and that example shouldn't be "do as I say, not as I do."
May 17Quote from mmutkSurprised to hear this post from someone in the military. Sounds very political.
If an employer doesn't want to hire you because you failed your drug test or you weigh 500lbs it's their choice.
I take it the OP is not a fan of being in a 'right to work' state.
It's not a "right to work" state where every one has a right to work regardless of Union affiliation. The term you are looking for is "At Will Employment state" in which an employer can choose to hire or fire someone for no reason whatsoever. It is then up to the employee to contest if they feel they can prove discrimination based on being in a protected class.

May 17Quote from Redhead,RNActually patients are about 28% less likely to quit smoking if their healthcare provider smokesHow can you expect a patient to follow your advice to not smoke and maintain a healthy weight, if you don't yourself. We set examples and that example shouldn't be "do as I say, not as I do."
May 20Quote from FlatlineDid you really just compare Black Panthers and socialists to neo-nazis? How are they even on the same level when one is the result of being oppressed and murdered without impunity, while also being treated as though they're subhuman. The other is somewhere in the middle of trying to do what's right while being semi selfish. Then you have neo-nazis who don't like anyone who doesn't have the same skin tone as them, hate the government, and are often prone to all out anarchy, up to and including death. Yet you put them all in the same basket. Amazing!Please do not confuse skin-head for neo-Nazi, different subcultures. Some skinheads may be neo-Nazis but not all and definitely not the majority. Most are apolitical but there is a very large group who are far left anarchists, socialists, or even anti-fascist.
Just as the Black Panthers and socialists have become more centrist and accepted in society I can foresee one day the neo-Nazis leveling out and being accepted.
Sounds crazy now but could you imagine what someone would have said about communists in the 50s or 60s?
May 29Nicotine gum will adversely impact my ability to practice? I think not...this is a combo morals clause and we do not want to insure you clause.
And weight is off limits being legally protected? Nicotine is more addictive than carbs.
