    GOP truly has become a parody of themselves

    Agreeing with you, I"ve never understood why VA facilities pay so poorly. There are obvious exceptions, but you get what you pay for with staffing at these places, and the mismanagement should be criminal in some cases. Do some reading on the new VA facility in Denver that went a DECADE over...

    GOP truly has become a parody of themselves

    I live in an area where this is a huge problem and we struggle to deal with the complexities of this issue, thank you. I volunteer at a local homeless shelter and understand firsthand some of the nuances involved here. I don't need to hear it from anyone, I see it around me every day. There...

    You really don't have a feel for this issue at all, do you?

    I'm about as sold on 'polling numbers' as I am advice from the CDC at this point.

    The Biden Administration Thread

    Huh? You're pontificating on his motivations for weighing in on this issue. I'm only guessing at what those reasons might be.

    Covid-19

    Guy comes in with a T12 burst fracture from auto accident. Admitted because he's going for Kypho the following day. Answers 'Yes' to runny nose question. Tested, he's positive. We had this exact scenario last Thursday, and no, COVID had nothing to do with his hospital admission or condition...

    Covid-19

    Well you kind of buried your own lead there, lol. Like I said, I haven't followed this closely, merely responding to what I've seen here about the EO. I'm honestly not aware of the 'thousands of people trying to become teachers in Oklahoma right now'. That seems rather strange, but I'll...

    Covid-19

    Hey, it's tempting to work a 13 week contract and make 9 months salary, take 3 weeks off and spend it in Mexico, or wherever, and alot of people are doing that. The saving grace for those us needing people is that most travel companies require you to go back to work after 3 weeks or lose your...

    Covid-19

    Good lord Karen, it sends a message that we're in a global pandemic and that maybe some different solutions or ideas might need to be explored. You're really ratcheted up over substitute teachers here, wow.

    Do you honestly think most subs really advance a kid's education? I mean, friend of mine in the Carl Albert district was telling me how they'll take just about anyone. Feels like you think substitutes are irreplaceable and integral.

    That was my point about the subs. It's not like they actually are an impactful part of a student's academic progress and that nobody else could fill that role. Most districts are desparate for any subs they can get.

    Covid-19

    I think we're clearly learning that our experiences are different everywhere in dealing with this. We're fortunate, in that we have one of the healthier populations in the country. A common thread we're all experiencing, though, is staffing. People have left healthcare, retired early, or...

    Covid-19

    This strain is coming for everyone, seems pretty clear. The data from S. Africa & the UK is very encouraging, and pretty much follows what one of our infectious disease docs told me when Omicron was first appearing in S. Africa.

    Covid-19

    No, I don't disagree with that at all. That's going a long ways to connect anything to COVID, and you know it.
