Welcome to Hollywood and Happy Halloween
On Halloween day CNA nurses handed out 5,000 masks of Arnold Schwarzenegger to locals in need of a last-minute costume in San Francisco, Sacramento, Fresno, and of course on his star of fame in Hollywood. The masks are stamped with a bar-code and marked “Property of” one of the major corporate donors—such as ChevronTexaco, FOX News, or Ameriquest—that are funding Schwarzenegger’s special election this November 8th. The masks are part of a broad-based campaign by the nurses to let the public know just how scary Schwarzenegger’s initiatives really are and to encourage all voters to vote NO this November 8.
The following entry is from an RN who took part in the Hollywood give-away.

The perfect place for Arnold's star, in front of the wax museum. Fake is the idea here. Unbelievable were the three Arnold warriors there to protect Arnolds star from us scary nurses. Honey we heal and advocate not desecrate. They even accused me of not being a nurse. Well I just got off a three night stretch of 12 hours shifts at Good Samaritan, San Jose neonatal intensive care unit and flew out as soon as I got off work. My time card can vouch for me. When was the last time one of them took someone's pulse?
