    I see very ill and dying elderly and not so elderly every day since I work in the medical field. I have been working in this area for less than 3 years and it is beginning to depress me. I am also frustrated about being underpaid and having very few workers benefits. There are many jobs that require a lot less training and skills that pay about five dollars and hour more than certain technical areas of the medical field.

  • How do I tell my mother-in-law that I really can't eat her cooking. It is super unhealthy.?

    I do not want to offend a sweet elderly person but I cannot continue to eat her cooking, It is a "heart-attack-on-a-plate." The amount of fat in her cooking is way beyond what any human should consume.

  • Is congress powerless over where and when the President sends troops to attack?

    Since the President is the Commander in Chief, what if the President, (whoever he or she is), becomes mentally unstable and issues orders for a military attack while in that condition? Is there no one who can legally stop it in time? If not, doesn't the Constitution need an amendment?

  • How do I find out the nutrition info on wafflehouse food?

    Wafflehouse does not publish the nutritional value of their foods, it seems. I wonder about the fat that they use to grill with and cook eggs with.

    I am refering to the TASK MANAGER on my home computer. I have windows XP. I probably downloaded spyware in some of the "FREE" stuff that is offered. I do not want to shut down something that my PC really needs to run and cause myself problems. What happens if I do shut down the wrong process running?
