A dozen or so "nurses" hold pathetic anti-Arnold protest in Chicago
My title again! MSM report actually titled "Chicago Protesters Greet Gov. Schwarzenegger".
Schwarzenegger was in the city to attend a private fundraiserevent at the Chicago Hilton and Towers, but several local nurses protested outside the facility... The local nurses are supporting their California counterparts who say Schwarzenegger may try to privatize their pensions...
The reader is invited to try to count all of the nurses shown in these photographs. It looks to me like there were a dozen there, but some people might be able to spot one or two more.
I note also that all of them appear to be carrying the same printed sign. And, I wonder if it's entirely accurate to simply refer to them as "nurses." While the article does mention the American Nurses Association, wouldn't it be more accurate to describe them as nurses who are members of nurse's unions or of membership/lobbying groups like the ANA?
And, note that the ANA has 150,000 members and is only open to R.N.s, yet our own Census Bureau is eager to inform us that there are 2.4 million R.N.s in these United States.
