At this time, it must be pretty stressful to be a fact checker for politicians. Among President Obama's State of the Union and all the Democratic and Republican speeches going on during this primary season, a lot of "facts" with dubious origin are being bandied around. Donald Trump by himself probably gives at least one person a career, constantly sifting through his closed-minded comments looking for actual facts to dispute. The good news for these fact checkers is the political primaries will soon end, and then their lives will be a little easier.
A lot of us though, are stuck with the same level of stress in our jobs day in and day out, and for the most part we hopefully learn to deal with that stress in a way that leaves us mostly sane and content. Some jobs are obviously more stressful than others, and every year those jobs are analyzed. It might be that our jobs put us in danger, make us wish we were paid a lot more money, or expose us to people we would rather not be exposed to. In 2016, though, new challenges will arise, causing stress levels to increase for some occupations and decrease for others. This list will look at some jobs in the United States that will most likely be very stressful throughout 2016.
15 Hosting the Academy Awards
14 Air Traffic Controller
13 Event Planner
12 Emergency Dispatcher
10 Social Worker
It takes a very brave soul to help people who resent being helped, but unfortunately many people who need help from social workers aren't really receptive, especially when the social work has to do with people's children. Back in 2005, a Child Protective Service worker was attacked with a machete in Washington State when she tried to rescue three children from a neglectful father (the previously mentioned machete-wielding maniac).

1 United States Soldier - First Line Of Defense And Offense
With humans having a marvelous knack at figuring out how to kill each other in more efficient ways, being a soldier is always not only the most dangerous job but also the most stressful. When we have an opponent like the Islamic State, our soldiers are in intense danger with little hope to find a peaceful resolution. ISIS is a doomsday cult masquerading as good Muslims, but they want to die in battle and take as many people (Muslim or not) with them as they can. We should, as a country, hope to fight violence with love, and convince our enemies to stop being so damaging, but in this case, violence may be the only solution. A lot of terrible things are in store for our soldiers in the next few years. We need to support them in their and our time of stress.
