Burned Out

              Physician burnout is on the rise.  I’ve seen statistics that claim at least one symptom of burnout in 46-54 percent of doctors.  Critical care and emergency room doctors experience the most, according to one Continuing Medical Education report I read.  The symptoms of burnout include emotional exhaustion, depersonalization (the sense of not being completely present), and a sense of reduced personal accomplishment and quality.                And, the numbers are rising.  Only 13 percent of doctors reported burnout in 2013, but that number rose to 46% in 2015.  The most recent issue of Psychiatric News asserts that burnout has grown to 54 percent this year.  Obviously,…

The Grain Elevator

“I’ve got to haul a load of grain into town. Who wants to come?” asked my father. Almost always, the answer was: “Take me!”   In the days of my childhood, we didn’t get off the farm that much and the ride into town was always a welcome diversion. Sitting in t…

Complexity and Consideration of Compensation

There is a new book that has sparked my interest, titled "The CEO Pay Machine." In 1978, an executive at a large American company was compensated at 26 times what the average worker was being paid. At present time, that compensation has exploded to 300 to 700 times what the average worker is paid, o…

Congress Retaliates!

Retaliates indeed.  Not against Russia.  Not against Trump.  Against its own citizens. Congress passes 419-3 for new sanctions against Russia and reinstates the cold war.   If you are not convinced now that there is a serious problem in the "establishment" . . . aka Congress, not…

Synchronicity - great minds think alike?

I am an antitheist and have seen no evidence for the existence of any deity, yet I find myself strongly attracted to many natural phenomena, such as sunsets, starry nights, trees, rocks, seascapes and mountains, in what I experience as a ‘spiritual’ connection and I am a great believer i…

The Oldness of the Corrupt

The corrupt Deep State/Shadow Government is not new.  It got its legs with World War 1.  Business began to supply both the Brits and the Germans in 1914 finding war to be most lucrative.  Business did the same in the 1930s and again found WW2 great for the bottom line.  No wonder…

WHITE LIVES MATTER

A young woman called 911, to report another woman being assaulted in the alley behind her home. When she saw a patrol car, she ran out in her PJ's to report what had happened. The officer sitting in the passenger seat shot her in the stomach and killed her! That seems to be the factual summary. Ever…

The Case for a Free College Education for All

  Bernie Sanders called for a free college education as a means to attract younger voters.  Many on the left have reasoned that since those with a college education earn more, a free college education is a means to eradicate welfare. Just educate everyone for free and poverty is solved. &…
