Links: 2010-03-01 – Obama is not FDR, George Soros, gross misconduct and more

A few words about the last link.  When I checked, there were 600+ comments on the post about the Washington Hospital Center firing nurses for the “gross misconduct” of missing work during blizzard conditions.  The comments were running 9 to 1 against the decision.  I applaud the outrage people are finally showing for the callous way in which corporate employment policy is practiced in the United States. People need to get off the couch, turn off their “American Idol” and “The Bachelor” mind-sucks and take a stand.
