Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

this is the part where those who didn't vote for Obama and warned about ObamaCare being bad for businesses and the economy get to sit back and say, "told you." it is just BEGINNING, and by the time the full disastrous effects are realized, Obama's 2nd term will be over.

Anyone working 12 hour shifts is disturbing (and there's a LOT of people in a LOT of other professions that do), even if they do so by choice.
One overlooked culprit in the world’s obesity epidemic may be the alarm clock, according to Till Roenneberg, a professor at the University of Munich’s Institute of Medical Psychology.
He studies “social jet lag,” a term he coined, perhaps not surprisingly, on an airplane. But unlike the jet lag you get from shifting time zones, social jet lag is the chronic clash between what our bodies need (more sleep) and what our lives demand (being on time). And his research suggests that it’s playing havoc with our biological clocks.
In a study, published in May, Roenneberg and colleagues analyzed the sleep habits of more than 65,000 adults. Two-thirds of them suffered from social jet lag, experiencing at least a one-hour disparity between how long they slept on workdays and weekends.
The researchers also found that, over the past decade, people have been going to bed later but still getting up at the same time, losing about 40 minutes of sleep on workdays. They are also spending less time outside, which could account for why their circadian rhythms have become so late.
Previous studies have linked sleep deprivation with excessive weight, but Roenneberg’s team concludes that it isn’t just how much sleep people get that matters—it’s how much they mess with their internal clocks. For every hour of social jet lag accrued, the risk of being overweight or obese rises by about 33 percent. Obesity results from a host of influences, but Roenneberg says “one contributing factor is not living according to your biological temporal needs.” No one knows the precise mechanism, but other studies suggest that lack of sleep causes higher secretions of ghrelin, the appetite hormone, and a reduction of leptin, the satiety hormone.

You can tell the nice ones with some actual real compassion for humanity from the not so nice ones though (in any profession)...just as soon as they open their mouths--BIG difference in what comes out of them (respectively)!
Another "expert" that probably has never worked even 6 hours straight, so what does he know about 12?

As an intern, knowing nothing, I worked often more than hundred hours a week. On days of call, we started a 0700 AM, was on call until next AM, then left home at 3 PM. Try to complain and your "evaluations" would stink.

Liberals always talk nice and expect docs to be their very serfs 24/7, being told by the government how they can not unionize, go on strikes or even walk out. Such is (was) life as MD. This, combined with the majority of ER patients thinking I was only a rich, out of touch and lazy p.o.sh. Made every day another "go and get beaten up" time.

Like a friend of mine jokingly said: Difference between an escort and a physician?

Escorts have better hourly pay and more like their jobs!!

Sen. Jon Kyl, R.-Ariz., says that Republicans are hesitant about extending the payroll tax holiday, a provision that many economists say will spur hiring.
“The payroll tax holiday has not stimulated job creation,” said Kyl while on “Fox News Sunday.”“We don’t think that’s a good way to do it.”
Do you really think Conservatives will support a tax cut that ONLY helps working people? Get real!
Why not reduce or eliminate the payroll tax permanently, and do the same with Social Security benefits?

He calls me "son" too. Oddly enough. But since he won't come close to admitting his side was just as much at fault leading up to the economic crisis, his denial that I'm a woman isn't all that surprising.

My God, you right whiners are uninformed.

The payroll tax cut, reducing the SS tax, was ust a mechanism to ensure the tax break went to working Americans.

The loss of SS income due to this break was replaced out of the general fund.

SS lost NO funding.

No. Just curious. You don't think all 18 deaths happening in one just state is a little unusual?

Actually - and this just occurred to me - it happened in the state where the only version of Obamacare was supposed to make health care better.

I find that even more unusual - and rather disturbing.

That is the sad part. By the time the full effect of Obamacare takes hold Obama will be retired living on the public dollar forever and now have free Secret Service for life. Provided, of course, they don't try to change the constitution so he can run as long as he wants. Change the constitution? Naw they wouldn't want to do that? This country is so screwed!!!

"Real Carol"???

You mean there is only ONE 'real Carol'??

So why did you reply to 'Carol' from Alabama??

Busted again, rookie!!

Seems Dave and I really got inside your very small head today and rearranged the limited furniture there!!

Looks like you're the one who gets the 'Carol's confused. You just proved it!!

All those other women with the name are 'fake Carol's'??

""Carol is a very popular first name for women (#18 out of 4276) and also a very popular surname or last name for all people (#17414 out of 88799).(1990 U.S. Census).

Better call all those Carol's and tell them they're fakes!!

ROFLMAO!!

Wow, Dave and I make you look the chump on XL and Cabinet posts and you go off making stuff up.

Typical for a wingnut caught in lies.

You never were very good at this. Call Gunner for help!! You need it!!

Well, have fun pretending to be me again today. If it gives you the kind of attention you need, I mean.
