Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Another debate like the last one and the media’s empyreal Obama will be tarnished beyond polishing.
Was thinking more middle-schoolic actually ; )
And I am praying for several more just like it! A+++
Shift diff for nurses in this area is a whopping $2/hr. so it’s hardly fair compensation.
My point being, that a lot of professions are more like vocations because people do have to give up a lot to practice them and they are rarely compensated financially unless they are surgeons. So it does kind of burn to see how many holidays other jobs get and how salaries don’t seem to reflect the true value of the work. Factory workers vs daycare workers, whose job is really more valuable? Hard to say, but the pay gap is enormous.
Again, one knows going in what is required. The world is full of injustice I suppose obams could be persuaded to REDISTRIBUTE holidays aka mandate employers to give all the same days off.
Home at last-did two little estimates, ran to the store and helped a neighbor put up as couple of moveable barricades as a potty training aide for her new puppy-
Obama’s empyreal pretentions
Have gotten him into a mess-
He just looks pretentious when
He tries hard to impress
There simply is no substance
Behind that phony veneer-
He’s not impressing many with
An elevated nose and a sneer
But he continues the charade
As he totally ignores his job
Will he go to Hawaii after November
Or back to Chicago and the mob?
Last year, when our daughter came home to be in her best friend’s wedding we bought it and watched it. Bridesmaids was hysterical!
Have you heard the one from Romney’s garbage collector. Shame on Mitt for never hugging his garbage collector. Shame shame shame.
You can’t polish a turd.
