Just a reminder that here in the US the Red Cross offers a combined CPR/AED course which is well worth the time. The instructional video with the HeartStart is good but the course gives some hands on use of the AED. It would also be good for one to have CPR training if one owns an AED.
Don't be fooled by this call for infrastructure spending, the guy you quoted is a notorious big spending politician. Obama and his buddies supposedly spent $1T on infrastructure which actually went mostly to support their union friends, i.e. teachers unions, bailing out UAW union, and public employees unions among others. Obama has increased our national debt by over $8T since he has been in office so I'm skeptical that he can spend more money wisely.
Hi Keith, thanks for the reminded. Indeed, everyone should check http://www.redcross.org/ for nearby first aid traning. The AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is simple enough to use but you should still get at least a basic CPR class.
I dont actually have a problem with spending as long as its done right and to benefit people, rather than doing it do benefit personal friends or themselves directly. Unfortunately, that happens a lot all over the world.FerFAL
