Pence and El Presidente are tested frequently? Now we see. There are plenty of tests for the elite to be tested frequently, but the rest of us, including nurses and nursing home patients are on our own.
If you are an average American worker, a vet, a homeless person, on Social Security, on Medicare, on Medicaid, a school child, a doctor, or a nurse; you don’t count
Look at the question a different way. Who can donate large sums of money to most Republican and some Democratic politicians? Those are the people that count.
If all those people who don’t count (you and I) vote, will Republicans ever win an election?
Putting a finer point on it, allowing this virus to kill those in nursing homes, on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid (essentially the elderly, the poor and in need) will be great for one political party. The Republicans have announced that this is their policy publicly and often. The Republican Party has not denounced these policies.
Remember Wisconsin and how the Republicans tried to steal that election by endangering the lives of the citizens by making the citizens choose between voting and the virus.
Dear Service Providers: (aka doctors, nurses, receptionists, clerks, waiters, waitresses, etc.)
Unless you are my mother, grandmother, boyfriend, girlfriend, lover, spouse, or child, you should not be calling me or anyone else in a business situation “honey”.
The reason is that unless you are in one of the those relationshhips listed above and are entitled to use that term “honey”, you are using it in a derogatory manner. It sounds like you are talking to a child not another adult or even more importantly a client.
If I were to address any female employee by the term “honey” it maight be consider disrespectful if not “sexual harassment” in the work place.
Because someone is in a less powerful position than you, it does not give you the right to call them “honey”. That is, of course, unless your intent is to make yourself feel important.
In addition, the use of these terms is unprofessional.
Thank you for giving this your consideration, Dearie.
