90% or greater census (occupied beds) has been the SOP business model of every hospital I've worked at since 1979. The crisis is the staffing shortage, which worsens every year. "Do more with less!" Cross-train ward clerks to do phlebotomy! Train nurse assistants to clean rooms! Give nurses and CNAs twice the number of patients to care for, while increasing the amount of documentation necessary for CYA! Charge nurses are bed wranglers and staffing patchers. We've come a long way from those sappy Burger King homages to frontline heroes of healthcare (I warned them that they would revert to expendable bedpan slingers the moment the narrative shifted sands...)

I used television as white noise for years after my Dad died---24/7/365---turned it off at the beginning of the COOF psyop, "People can NOT be buying this B.S.!" Apparently, they WERE becoming sheep! Americans! Since it obviously destroys intellect and critical thinking skills, I turned it off forever...

"If we can't cheat and get our way, we'll cheat and runaway!" Go on a terminal hunger strike! That will really show who's boss! (special elections for each martyr's place)...

Ah, Hillary's benign, folksy-sounding, "It takes a village" horse manure when leftists feel confident enough to let the veil drop---not supplemental parents, replacement governmental ones...

They have the votes, but still need a quorum---hence, (D) illegal emigration, The Snit Fit Diaspora (temporary, alas...)

"Mom! You don't have to fake leprosy this year! Gayle's banning us!" "Praise, God!"...

Sounds like Phase II: The Political Career, opening salvo ("If Trump can do it, anyone can do it"---or Steyer-Bloombergitis: money and power translating to power of money Power. He has less charisma than either, but twice the ego...)

I would ravage empires, cross burning wastelands, scale ice-covered mountains to procure a feline. Luckily, I just have to step outside (in waders) and select from the eight abandoned litters on my front porch, usually with Mamas-in-tow, every 4-6 months. ;)

BUY CATS??? Hahahahahahaha. Sorry. Been a devout, practicing Cat Lady since I was 5 years-old---I've never even MET anyone who bought a Cat. People are insufferable, self-absorbed and intellectually lazy (so are Cats, but they want to be left alone, to eat and to sleep. My spiritual totem animal...)

She seems very happy with her life choices---blooming with joy, as it were. Um...

That boombox-over-his-head thing was over thirty years ago (cute has a definite shelf-life)...

Blended families! I can tell you are fiercely rejecting their emotional enticements. Me, too (if total subjugation is resisting? ;)

Kittens are my crack cocaine and I'm proud, proud to be a Cat Lady---my life's ambition at 5 years-old was to be a Cat Lady, with so many Cats that small children would run past my house in terror. Only 5 and children aren't even bemused, but otherwise: ambition achieved. Green-with-envy: enjoy! ;)

Get FDA to yank NAC (N-acetyl cysteine) off the market because it strengthens the immune system against free radicals (been sold for decades) and helps fight viral infection...

Clinically speaking, probably blue balls. I was told many years ago, by a reliable source, that that can kill, if left untreated ;)...

It only took the F.B.I. 17 years to arrest the Unabomber and he didn't have social media. Mad sleuthing skills (and a brother willing to dime him out)...
