Funny shit and idiot responses.

From Mike:
This young man neither is empathetic or educated enough to have such a vocational job careing for our countrys heros who allowed us to speak English rather than german or Japannese. No pay will be ever adequate when dealing with geriatrics hence the vocational referral. People are so myopic and it is saddening. Apply where people skills are not needed like macdonalds or Pizza hut.

Fine Englush Mikey.
So in your world just because you're a "vetran" you're allowed
to grab nurses by the snatch and ass for shits and grins without worrying about criminal charges? There must be a waiting list 10 miles long for this place. Where do I signup for this place?

Not surprised. When I was a patient at Bratt Memorial, I received a great deal of mental abuse as well as removal of medication that would relieve severe pain from spasticity. It was NOT a narcotic. This was my punishment for being in so much pain from a spastic disease that I was unable to move.

Abuse of Vulnerable people is everywhere,and most of the time they get away with it--bringing up charges is hard. Watch out, friends!

Many patients complain about abuse with nothing getting done. I am glad when a charge happens.

What difference does it make BTP? Does your post have anything to do with the subject of this Topix Forum? NO.......... Just more Good Morning nonsense courtesy of the nitwit.

Will you look at this shit folks. This tard bitch hasn't posted
an ON TOPIC response since day one. "IT" finds it much easier to
mock others comments due to lack of knowledge on the subject.
It's a symptom of that Bennville Doi Di Doi syndrome.

I'm looking forward to that day when I can grab the ass of a
20 year old FEMALE and not get arrested for it.... Bring on the
dementia.....

I can tell by your response that you have zero knowledge of
dealing with geriatric patients....

Facts: Over 70% of all nursing patients are given psychoactive
drugs just for shits and grins....

Nursing homes have the highest incidence of workplace violence
towards employees than any other job in the country.... A CDC report claims that 70% of staff members are assaulted at least once per month and nursing assistants are assaulted on average 9 times per month with 50% of those assaults causing injury and 38% of those injuries requiring medical attention.... The report also claims that 40% to 85% of these assaults are never reported to their supervisors.....

Now how would you like to get your ass smacked around every day at work??????

Years ago violent and aggressive patients were strapped down in their beds, chairs and wheelchairs... Today the ADA prohibits this practice, hence drug the shit out of them.....

As a young adult, I worked in nursing homes and cared for many geriatric patients, so I do know that world. As a 50-something, I came down with a serious neurological illness that landed me in the hospital in a completely helpless, vulnerable state. I was abused by a few really nasty nurses, and had vital medications withheld which left me in severe physical pain, to punish me for not being able to get well fast enough!I also had to deal with a creepy doctor (not my own) who encouraged the nurses to mistreat me. I was a very nice and cooperative patient, not a threat to them at all. But my "niceness" made me a target for abuse. This happened in Brattleboro.

Sounds like you should have been sent to the Brattleboro Retreat and not Brattleboro Memorial Hospital.

A Penny For Your Thoughts, your experience and thoughts are not worth a plug nickel to these few but obnoxious professional internet trolls. Just read the trolls many comments. It's easy to see that they are just playing a game of LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME with you like they do with everyone else on here. To them it's all about them but actually they are nothing without you. It's really not worth your precious time trying to explain or get them to understand anything. They win by you responding. The more you respond, the worse it will get. It's obvious that they don't care or respect anyone or anything. Turn it around but not responding. Then you WIN!

The sphincter returns.

Yes, Marky, you ARE a sphincter. Actually you are the void that the sphincter surrounds.

Seems like a good time for a golden oldie hit:

SHAFT THE BLOATED BLOGGER

(Sung to the tune of Puff The Magic Dragon)
(With lyric credit to the REAl real Vermonter)

Shaft The Bloated Blogger
Lives in a tree
And wallows in his emptiness
In a land called 'Look at me!'

The intelligent forum bloggers
Would cringe when Shaft logged on
And bravely weathered the insanity
Til Shaft they knew was gone

The wise bloggers ignored Shaft
Hoping she would just go away
But Blogosaurus never took the hint, instead
Kept blogging with nothing to say

The smart opinion posters
Would wince when 'ere the saw Shaft's name
No one dared entertain the rants
'Cause its not wise to acknowledge the inane

Shaft would waste the hours
Making post after stupid post
Never realizing
Everyone knew she was just a joke

Then one day it happened
The Topix forum was no more
And Shaft that Blogosaurus
Ceased her mind numbing bore

Shaft's keyboard silenced forever
No forum to post her crap
So Shaft the Bloated blogger
Did what she does best...nap

Shaft's nonsensical posts went unanswered
Her green scales fell like rain
Shaft no longer could go out and play
Along the cyber lane

Shaft stuffed her face in sorrow
Pork rinds fell like rain
Shaft no longer had the place
Where she was a gigantic pain

Without her anonymity,
Shaft could not be brave
So Blogoppatumus that self-righteous hypocrite
Limped back to her dingy cave

Oh, Shaft The Bloated Blogger
Lives in a tree
And wallows in his emptiness
In a land called 'Look at me!'

Shaft The Bloated Blogger
Was outed on these posts
With its identity finally revealed
Shaft headed for the coast

Once its true identity was given
Shaft made a final hasty post
Then tucked its tail between its legs
And faded like a ghost

We learned its name is Marky
A pathetic loser of a man
Whose life went from the fire
Into the frying pan

Shaft came back and tried to deny it
Saying Marky was not him and such
But smart bloggers knew much better
'Cause Shaft (Santelli) doth protest too much

Shaft denies and says he's not Marky
The lousy ex-cop who is oh so fat
But the proof is in the bloggings
And as you say 'Good luck with that!'

See what I mean A Penny For Your Thoughts?

These particular trolls have been spewing nonsense here since the begining. Look back and you will see them posting under a dozen different usernames.

Topix allows these trolls to stay and say whatever they want even if it violates the terms of service, state or federal laws because Topix makes money off of them. Thats what Topix is all about.

Don't expect this to ever change.

It violates the terms of service, state or federal laws?????

What a hoot!!!!!!
Please state for us here these State and Federal Laws which are being violated, I love humor bitch, amuse me.....

Topix Terms of Service: If it upsets you that the free expression of ideas is often heated and offensive, please do not use Topix.

When "WE" first started using Topix "WE" followed with on topic responses only to be blasted with the likes of your ignorant ass attacking "US" for calling you out on bullshit comments which contained zero facts and a ton of dreamland lies....

Now it appears your controlling days are over and you are left with only BOO HOO, mommy they're picking on me!!!!!!

Elmer, Stevie, did you get your royalty check this month?????
It appears we are making Topix rich......

Marky can't cash his welfare check until the first of the month.

No wonder he's upset.
