That's an extremely poor analogy in my view, as it relates to experience only, and you're essentially saying that the only valid evidence is anecdotal evidence. Do you believe you have to have given birth yourself to be a good obstetrician? To have had cancer yourself to be a good oncology nurse? To be a priest to have an opinion about the church? A Minnesota meteorologist would give me a better understanding of hurricaines than the Florida bank clerk, who may be able to describe his own experience and nothing more: both points of view valid and complementary to each other.DeMaxx said:. My analogy would be like someone writing a book on how it feels to live through a hurricane when they live in Minnesota and have never been near a hurricane. If you want to know it feels to live through a hurricane ask someone that lives in Florida not Minnesota.
I see so many threads where people just come in to start an argument. If thats someones reason. Then thats not intelligent and i don't welcome it. DeMaxx
Naughty Nurse raised very valid points which your fellow countryman was unable to address, instead dismissing him as an "English nurse" rather rudely, as if being English meant he had no right to comment (he doesn't have to live in the US to have an opinion on US domestic politics - enough of you United Statesians comment on Europe, often incorrectly, but you're entitled to your view since in Europe we genuinely believe in freedom of speech and don't just pay lip service to it); and I don't get his point about Naughty being a nurse. As a nurse he's an educated, professional person. I've worked in the UK health service - they have a highly educated nursing workforce, usually educated to masters level. Perhaps unlike your intellectually insecure compatriot, Naughty doesn't feel the need to boast about his university attendances in his profile.
