Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

How are you? I am fine. Well, that's not really true, I am far from fine. For years I remained silent as my friends, friends parents, uncles and aunts bought and played video games like Call of Duty. I never played, never found the idea of simulating killing people all that much fun. Assassins Creed, Grand Theft Auto, I see the ads on TV and wonder what have we become? The other day I saw a commercial where some young men chased each other through some city streets shooting each other with their cell phones. I guess simulating shooting somebody is different from actually doing so, but is it that far removed?

I don't know. I do know that I don't want anything this Christmas. I only have one Christmas wish:

Instead of leaving presents, can you take them away? Take all of the games where somebody simulates killing another human being, even if that human being is considered a "bad guy." Take them to the North Pole and put them in your fireplace, and make them disappear.

And while you are at it, can you also take any guns that are not locked up tight with you?

Thank you, Santa and have a Merry Christmas.

 

Your friend,

Everyman

EMS Staffed by Nurses
Notice the company name: Stat TRANSFERS. Trying to insinuate that I'm insulted because nurses are doing horizontal taxi runs is specious at best. And for the record, the hole being filled by CP programs is a hole that nursing created. Tough shit if they feel threatened.

[…] and “shares” generated by it as justification for your words then the post “EMS staffed by Nurses” was a huge success. I actually saw that picture a while ago and stored it in the old noggin until I […]

EMS Staffed by Nurses
I've heard many EMS workers complain about the new "extended care services" that may be coming at us. A few have said, "I will leave EMS if that happens." Now they're complaining about Nurses doing it? I'm about serving the community we live in, not just the adrenaline rush. Yes, the pay sucks, and Medics…

EMS Staffed by Nurses
To Rick, Nurses have degrees and paramedics do not? This statement and lack of knowledge is why paramedics do not get the credit they deserve. Both RN and paramedics can obtain Associates and Bachelor degrees. Here in Texas, paramedics work in ERs and have the same duties as nurses. With proper training each can do…

EMS Staffed by Nurses
Haha, well I guess you could take that "staffed by nurses" statement as as either a warning or selling point. The thought that paramedics are somehow more adept at providing independent care isn't well founded. Nurses can function off standing orders just like paramedics. Nurses have been providing pre-hospital care in the HEMS and CCT…
