    Vacation Destinations!

    I am a traveling man! In my short amount of time living I have traveled extensively. My best holidays were hiring a car and traveling the Tuscan region of Northern Central Italy. From Como to Florence in Winter. Hitting Milan and Genoa on the way down to Sienna and Pisa and then across to Florence. The food was spectacular and I took in a few soccer games as well. What was your excellent vacation?

    Majorie Taylor Greene, New Episode!

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/04/us/politics/marjorie-taylor-greene.html So I have been waiting for someone to put this up and no one did so I had to! I've been watching some of her old social media posts and I can tell you personally the Dems are making a huge mistake here. MTG is by far the most entertaining political personality in years. She's almost in Palin's league. She's absolutely hilarious and the Dems are doing a serious disservice to the entertainment of the American public. She's bat *** crazy!! Around the bend, crackers, nuts, and I honestly believed if the Dems hadn't done this, she would have single handedly brought down the republicans.

    I always look for the funny side of things especially as I mostly work in Psych and Sub Abuse. What happens on your floors? Or even every day life?

    Topical News

    Update on the Google and facebook post! Australia’s move to tame facebook and Google is just the start of a global battle! It's about time to regulate these irresponsible behemoths! If I was the French or Australian govt I would have imposed humongous taxes on both Google and facebook ONLY! I would have baited them into filling a lawsuit for discrimination and then subpoenaed every last document or policy they have re discovery! I would have exposed every last one of their executives and not be remotely interested in a deal or settlement! Zuckerberg especially I would have broken and put him in jail eventually! I know that these strong words will invoke blowback, but Google dominates advertising re meta tags and you have to pay Google to play. facebook does exactly the same thing and both have no regulations. As a business owner, I use both and believe me you can't complain. There's no one to complain to! Admittedly both have there uses, but they break every antitrust law in the book and like Murdock, weild too much influence for democracy to work!

    Are you not missing the point? Kids, babies are not in their mother's arms. Do you have any idea how terrified they must have been? I don't presume to judge what the parents did, I only know that I can't stand to see a young kid suffering. I left medical nursing because of working pediatric oncology and listening to pastors stating that it was God's wishes but I also couldn't stand to see innocent children in pain and being so strong. I have the benefit of having an amazing childhood and I wish all children could be equally blessed, so it really, really bothered me hearing of the situation and then having it confirmed and knowing that the originators of the policy couldn't even have bothered to take extensive research, to make sure those kids were always connected to their loved ones. And that some kids are still not able to see their parents because Trump's people were so callous re keeping information re the parents whereabouts. That speaks volumes to me! Volumes!

    Do you remember when you were a child? Could you bare to be separated from your parents? I still need my parents. Dude, there's nothing more cruel that I can imagine, than taking a young child away from their parents. When you were scared as a child, didn't you run straight into your parents bed? Can't you remember what a reassuring world it is knowing that your Dad is there to protect you or older demonic sister 😂😅🤣. She really is totally scary is my older sister! Dude, your family is your life when you are young.

    So it's really all about the headline, isn't it? If the headline catches your eye, you engage? What's the point of superficiality? You hopefully don't treat people like that, do you? I really hope you don't dude, because you will be missing out a lot. Beerman, you have to engage with the context of things to understand them. Anything else is not only disrespectful, it's just rude. I read all of your posts just because you are so different. I don't understand why you think the way you do and being blinkered means that you miss everything going on around you. That's why they put them on horses!

    This is specifically for you! Read and see if you can distinguish what constitutes animalistic behavior? Our supposed fundamental distinction from “beasts, “brutes” and “savages” is used to divide us from nature, from one another and, finally, from ourselves. In Plato’s “Republic,” Socrates divides the human soul into two parts. The soul of the thirsty person, he says, “wishes for nothing else than to drink.” But we can restrain ourselves. “That which inhibits such actions,” he concludes, “arises from the calculations of reason.” When we restrain or control ourselves, Plato argues, a rational being restrains an animal. In this view, each of us is both a beast and a person — and the point of human life is to constrain our desires with rationality and purify ourselves of animality.

    Beerman, are you sure you understand what happened or the implications or as I previously implied, do republicans actually care about anything? Dude, people actually tried to overthrow a legitimate election! Which part of democracy don't you understand? Peaceful transfer of power! Don't you understand that is the CRUX OF A DEMOCRACY? Consider NO ONE ELSE in the history of America ever considered INSURRECTION as a viable alternative, except Trump! Jesus,man! He had a Mob storm the Capitol to see if he could take over the country! Would you be upset if China or Russia invaded the country and tried to take it over? Beerman, NO ONE but a stone cold CRIMINAL would even possibly THINK LIKE THAT! Normal people don't entertain such thoughts if they understood what this country is all about!

    Well I think with the anonymity, it allows people to clarify their opinions better and you are not distracted by extraneous things like looks, smells etc. I'm a reader, so I find the written word easier. Different opinions challenges your own thought processes especially if they are structured and logical. It expands my horizons.

    I really like the difference of opinions! People tend to be more honest when anonymous. It works for me because I never share anything with anyone but I feel comfortable letting people in my life and knowing it can't be used against me. I like the variety of articles especially since I have relegated myself to Psych and Sub Abuse mostly. I also like that people share similar views to my own again because I don't share, it becomes difficult to get feedback from others. It's actually very freeing and I look forward to doing something other than reading, except when I am working of course. I tend to go out and have a few pints, if I am not at my parents being fed by mother or at my older sister who doesn't feed me, but I get to play with my nephew and nieces. Yeah, I like allnurses 👌👌.

    Beerman, can I ask you a simple question? Why do you think Republicans do not want democracy? I mean if everyone was allowed to vote, doesn't that allow majority rule? Then when the Republicans win again, they control everything! Isn't that what democracy is about? I mean there are some Democratic regions gerrymandered and voter suppressed, don't you want those regions to allow fair and equal representation? Why won't Republicans allow everyone to vote and the most votes wins?

    facebook reverses ban on news pages in Australia! Update on facebook's stance re Australia ban. I think facebook had to capitulate because they bluffed and it was called! They realized that if Australia had stayed their course, it would mean that the rest of the world would follow suit. What do you think?

    Have you ever been in charge? Can you be everywhere doing everyone's jobs? He delegated, was given reports likely, had to finesse the information to give hope and make do with what he had available. Trump never had any vaccines or plan or anyone responsible except useless Kushner as we all found out after the election! People were on their own and 500k deaths later, now we have some political opportunists.

    The golden first year?

    I would also look around at work for a competent experienced nurse who appears sympathetic. They are very easy to spot. They are kind and pleasant, always has a good word and reassuring, DOESN'T GOSSIP, goes about their day without problems and gets along with everyone. Then use your 23 yr old charms. Do not be disengenous and manipulative, your goal is to make a friend, so you need to be honest up to a point until you get to know her better, and ask for advice re problems you would have previously thought of and prioritized. Genuine ernesty gets you credibility and help most times. Ask her what would she do in your situation KNOWING THAT HOW YOU FEEL CURRENTLY is only temporary. This is an easy hypothesis to test. Order something you really want from Amazon or a meal you really like and see how much better you feel. This proves that it's work that's responsible for how you are feeling. Knowing this should interlectually help you to understand that when you overcome work wobblies, you would be fine. All feelings are temporary and should never be relied upon until you test them.

    The golden first year?

    It's your mindset. Personally, what you consider insecurity, I consider poor attitude. You are in the brilliant position of being a nurse! All you have to do to get any of the preceptors to like you is to get stuck in. Make a commitment to learn and work. No one ever refuses someone who's willing to work and ask questions. Get some review books. Read. Get the theoretical going so when you get on the floor, it's just applying that knowledge based on what your preceptors want. Take notes of what you don't understand and go home and review. Ask your preceptors precisely what they require of you and do it! It's not rocket science. Trust me, once you begin understanding what's going on and what's required of you, you will be fine. And think about your qualifications and what it means. You can move to any state or any country and it's transferable! Few jobs offer that. Not even Drs have that privilege.

    Which Nurse are You?

    17) Quiet Quincy. Just there to do my shift and go. Mostly work per diem about two shifts weekly, different places, so it's not necessary to get involved. I do about two travel assignments per year of 13 weeks each. Still no reason to get involved.
  25. Yes, but won't he be reincarnated here 😅🤣😂? Does he owe taxes if he's reincarnated here? 😱😁🤔
