Please do not be impressed by NC's 50% standing in the ratings. Our new governor and his good ole boy cronies just this week voted to decimate unemployment benefits and against the Medicaid expansion, effectively dooming millions in this state to homelessness and starvation. Our charities are beyond overwhelmed because no one is contributing in this poor economy. And yet every one of these policitians will be in the front pew on Sunday. What a misrepresentation!

My employer recently instituted some new protocols (read, rules) regarding vacation sign ups. You must use all of your earned vacation time in that year or lose it. However, you are only allowed to take vacation time if staffing levels allow for someone to be off and if those covering for you in your absence are not in overtime or pulled in from the all too expensive "as needed (PRN)" pool. Since our staffing levels are always borderline below what is called for, no one is allowed to sign up for time off until staffing levels improve. And someone out there will wonder why the reporter wrote this article and how it could possibly be relevant in this day and age.

I would be interested in finding out who sponsored the research for most of these rebuttals. Each one ended with either "taking a prescribed medicine" or "visiting your doctor" or the lovely one that said to take "over the counter medicines". Instead of using a natural oil on your skin, the advice was to rub a hormone distrupting medication into your skin instead. Thinking Big Pharma is behind a lot of this..........
