Have you never held a job? Almost ALL employers expect sick notes from the doctor, especially if you are out for more than one day! And there is a very good reason they do this…employees take advantage of sick days if they do not!
In the 30+ years that I have been either an employee or an employer, I have never been required, nor required others to provide a doctor's note.
Is this a union thing?

It isn’t difficult to get in to see a doctor for a minor issue, there are little walk in offices all over Canada in their malls. They are a bit like the ones that Walmart used to operate. In about three hours you can get care for minor issues, but if you need anything more, the wait can be dangerously long. Someone I knew in Canada went through THREE surgeries on his shoulder, because he could not get in to see a physical therapist after each of them and his shoulder froze back up again each time. There are more MRI machines in Vermont than in all of Canada, so if you need something more than an xray or simply CAT scan, you are in for a LONG wait…or you can pay cash or purchase private insurance and go to the front of the line. Both are becoming very popular in Canada.

Anyone who has watched Obama schmoozing people out of big bucks for the last eight years knows what a self promoting grifter looks like…and it doesn’t look like Sarah Palin!

Yes, Van Jones admitted while doing an interview on CNN that after they heard and saw the response her convention speech received, they were ‘shaking in their boots terrified of her’ and they put out word that she was to be taken down, no matter how hard they had to hit or how big the lie had to be.
 February 17, 2015 at 6:06am
Absolutely they feared her! Van Jones, one of Obama appointees that had to resign due to his association with extremists, said, “”Sarah Palin, people forget, she had the Democratic party shaking in our boots in 2008. She came out, she gave that speech at the convention. That was hands down one of the best convention speeches, not by a woman, by anybody in 2008. People were running for the hills.” – Van Jones while on CNN
After many years of bashing Sarah Palin, Van Jones broke down at the end of the segment and confessed the motivation for the many years of Palin bashing committed by Democrats and their operatives, admitting.. “Now it can be told! We were scared!”-Van Jones while on CNN

Yes, we gave Republican’s an historical win, but they still do not have the votes to over ride a presidential veto, so they are doing the best they can, which is keeping him tied up in court and passing bills the American’ people want signed into law and make Obama risk vetoing them. We need to make sure that we give them the presidency and a veto proof Congress in 2016 and if they don’t do what we wan then…fire the whole lot of them!

Wow, all of a sudden I have a craving for some fresh made chocolate chip cookies…and you bet I’m gonna lick the beaters just like always!

Not sure what you mean by Rush asking for trouble by ‘throwing’ money around like that. He is a very wealthy man and if he choses to tip accordingly, I admire him for it. Or perhaps he was eating with a crowd, as he does quite often, and the tip wasn’t just for one meal. Just because this waitress is a brain dead liberal, does not mean his generosity to those who work in the service industry is a mistake.

Yes, the police would want to know who the child belong to, but the reasonable assumption would be that, since she is asking the state to help her determine the father of her child, that she did not have a clue that the child was not hers…in fact, the assumption would be that she did not know the blood type of the child in her custody until after the test was performed and she received the results. But no matter what the results of this question, there are better and FAR more appropriate ways for genetics to be taught to impressionable teens!

Yes, the correct answer is that the child is no hers, but that could easily be because of a screw up at the hospital. The question does NOT say that she knew the blood types of the men she pointed out to be tested, it merely says their DNA was tested after she pointed them out as potential fathers. In fact, you cannot even assume from the question that she knew either her own or the child’s blood type BEFORE the test was completed!

I guess I don’t understand the conflict. I’m 57 and remember making a paper bag into a Valentines Card holder and getting and giving a card to everyone in my class….and each of my children ALWAYS gave cards and received cards from everyone in their classes! Have we actually become a society where a children’s card exchange has become a competition of popularity instead of a friendly way for everyone to have some fun? The only thing I object to is the teacher actually needing to remind parents that a Valentines day card exchange is meant to give everyone a bit of fun, not just a select few! Oh yeah, and the fact that apparently it is now the parents job to write the names….it used to be a way for the children to get a bit of writing practice!

Why on earth are you whining about BANNER not getting enough attention? There are real problems in America! This administrations spokesperson just said that part time jobs were a GOOD thing and something to work towards since part time work gives people more time to spend with their families! We are living inside their insanity and you are upset because people could care less about whether a BANNER got talked about on the news?

ROFL You really have your head up Obama’s rear, don’t you! Obama interviews with O’Reilly every time he needs a distraction from something! This is at least the 3rd interview and may be the forth time he has gone to O’Reilly to get a boost in the polls over a scandal or help with his re-election…right now he is just trying to bring his poll numbers up so Democrats don’t continue to hide when he shows up in their state!

Sorry, Zipit, but healthcare and medical insurance is now more expensive and difficult to obtain than ever before!

I wonder what she thought 911 could or would do…other than cut her hair? If it is a big enough emergency to call 911, it is a big enough emergency for them to cut her hair to release her, they certainly aren’t going to take the go cart apart!

Not if I’m on the jury! The lady has obviously had long hair her whole life….by now she should know that certain activities require her to pin it up securely or cover her hair with a ‘sock’ or other secure cap. Of course common sense and our judicial system don’t often meet!

Guess you turned your liberal blind eye to all the death wishes that liberals like you have sent to George HW Bush and Barbara Bush when they were in the hospital recently! BTW, how do you know Michelle hasn’t killed anyone…you can’t believe a word either of them says and for all we know she had tons of late abortions when she was young, after all, we know that they don’t like the idea of being ‘punished’ with a baby! Both she and her husband certainly support it and surely they aren’t hypocrite enough to support something they wouldn’t do themselves!
January 7, 2014 at 5:11pm
LOL, that will be NEVER! The private security, salary, benefits, housing allowance, library allowance, private office allowance, plus everything that has been kicked back into offshore accounts from the big donors he paid back with his fraudulent solar energy loans will support them very comfortably in any lifestyle they wish for the rest of their lives! And you better believe they will suck up the maximum allowed, just like the Clinton’s did…no going home an living modestly as the Bush’s did for Obama and Michelle!

There is a major problem with your conclusion…A&E is not going to be the one that comes out on top in this. They are going to lose their one and only money making show and the Robertson’s are going to move on to another station, perhaps even BlazeTV as Glenn Beck has already offered them a time slot. The country is on the Robertson’s side. While I do not even agree with what he said, I absolutely defend his right to answer a question (which was set up to start this whole controversy from the very beginning) about his personal beliefs, honestly, without risking losing his livelihood. It isn’t as if he called for gays to be destroyed or even said he hated them, he merely stated his opinion about sin when asked what he believed was sinful behavior!

Catty, why do you think a lot of the information in Obama’s book is wrong? It is because he had to change the facts in order to ‘fashion’ the identity he wanted the reader to see! So he LIED about his past, he LIED about his father, he LIED about his Kenyon family and made them into something they were not, something he WANTED them to be because he didn’t like the identity he actually had…one where his father was a drunkard and a woman abuser and didn’t want anything to do with him…and his mother was a Marxist who also wanted nothing to do with him so she sent him away and then allowed her parents to hand him over to a pedophile, Frank Marshall Davis, to abuse him! It is no wonder Obama felt the need to invent a loving father who died before he could come back and take Obama away from it all!
