Monday Humor? Obama Warns Trump On Use Of “Executive Orders” at The “pen and a phone” guy is telling Trump to do as I say not as I do. Quote from Obama: “Keep in mind, that my strong preference has always been to legislate when I can get legislation done. In my first two years I wasn’t relying on executive powers because I had big majorities in the Congress…..even after we lost the majorities…..I bent over backwards consistently to try to find compromise and a legislative solution to some of the big problems that we’ve got.”

Equal Pay Day This Year Was April 12th. The Next Occupational Fatality Day Will Be On Feb. 19, 2027, by Mark J. Perry, at carpediemblog. Over 90% of the top 20 most dangerous occupations are filled by men. In 2015 there were 4454 men killed in fatal occupational injuries compared to 367 women. This doesn’t seem fair. What can be done to have a more equitable distribution of these deaths?

This chart from carpediemblog (here) shows the 20 most dangerous jobs.


Notice police and sheriff’s patrol officers are in 19th place, and fire fighters are not in the top 20. Should we call  people who are in the top 18 most dangerous occupations “heroes” for performing the jobs in the fields they freely decided to enter? Could these people also be considered “first responders”. Aren’t farmers, roofers, miners, refuse collectors etc responding to people’s demands?
