The Atmosphere Today

July 27th, 2016

the ozone today over antarticThis weeks Blog was supposed to be titled the “The Ozone Today”. I thought it’d be a page full of doom and gloom so imagine my surprise when I found out that the ozone’s on the mend. As matter of fact it should be totally restored by 2050. I’ll be 82 by then if I can quit smoking and not die of lung cancer I’ll be here to witness it. The ozone is thinnest where the blue and purple are and thicker where there is orange and red.

A little more on the ozone: The name comes from the Greek- ozein- to smell. Passing electricity through oxygen produced a slightly pungent smell thus it’s name. I thought it was ozone because there was a zone above the Earth where O3 collected. It is that too. Approximately 12 to 18 miles above the Earth where it absorbs ultra violet light. Other sources state that the ozone is between 6 and 30 miles above the Earth.  At ground level (the Troposphere) O3 is an irritant to the respiratory tract. Good ozone takes its place in the Stratosphere; the layer above the Troposphere. Above that is the Mesosphere, then the Thermosphere, and the outermost layer is the Exosphere. These 5 layers make up the Atmosphere. Ozone in the Troposphere is created from the interaction of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This creation comes from automobiles, factories, paint, hairspray, etc; even some plants. Ozone is created in the Stratosphere when sunlight brakes apart O2 molecules leaving two individual oxygen atoms which recombine with other O2 molecules to form O3. O3 is destroyed by the reactive gases, hydrogen, nitrogen oxide, and those containing chlorine and bromine.

the atmosphere today polar bearAnother problem with our atmosphere is climate change. Global warming is said, by some, to be balderdash. I for one believe in the phenomenon. Could it be that all the carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), and methane (CH4) that we’ve dumped into the atmosphere for 150 years has no effect or consequence? These and water (H2O) are greenhouse gases. The greenhouse effect is a good thing. It keeps us from freezing but you know what they say about too much of good thing. These molecules do absorb heat and we are producing way too many of them. My climate here in New England doesn’t seem to be getting any warmer but the winters are starting later and ending later than they used to. That is climate change. “But global warming isn’t about the orbit of the planet.” These types of things could be effected by climate change rather than the orbit of the planet. Global means that some places may get colder as cooler air and currents are forced from one place and into another with the bigger picture being a warmer planet. the atmosphere today human elementA little out there in in left field is “The Rule of Governing Energy” on “The Human Element” page. Not only does it mean that the fully aware and awake human element can control the elemental make of our atmosphere it also means that we could colonize and control the atmospheres of every planet in the Solar System. For now we should focus on reducing our carbon footprint and other pollutants. Of these sinners I am chief (gross polluter) but it takes education and money to live green. Other than that it would change the face of our economy which isn’t bad thing but there’s many a powerful person rich by fossil fuel consumption. My bid for the economy is Occupational Parenting. There isn’t a better focused everlasting economy. A certainty is that it would focus on our children’s environment and  their children’s children domain.

the atmosphere today space junkSpace Junk: To the right is a picture of all the debris around our planet in our atmosphere. Among the 2,271 (in 2013) satellites there is more than 170 million debris smaller than 1 cm (0.4 in), about 670,000 debris 1–10 cm, and around 29,000 larger debris are in orbit. As of 2009, 19,000 debris over 5 cm (2 in) are tracked (Wikipedia). As the planet dies will the wealthiest people turn to space to live; the same people who contributed most to it’s death. In the future will there more to fear from the sky than ever before? Will satellites be armed with lasers or Direct Energy Weapons (DEWs). It would be as close to Zeus hurling a deadly lighting bolt from Olympus as one would care to imagine. This isn’t as paranoid as may sound. Direct Energy Weapons are expected to come online in the mid 2020s. To me that means they already exist. In keeping this about our atmosphere what would you think about a planet floating around in all that trash if you were a neighbor? There goes the Galaxy right? Headlong into the space age and we don’t even know how to clean up after ourselves. We definitely would have benefited from some better parenting.

the atmosphere today nuclear meltdowmWhat else is happening out (up) there? Contamination of the atmosphere with dust and particles is a serious problem, both locally and internationally. Industrial processes and explosions may release harmful particulate matter into the atmosphere, depositing the dust over wide areas and then spreading it around the world when it reaches the upper atmosphere. This is of special concern when winds spread pesticides, radioactivity or other dangerous material. Contamination from pesticides has been found in the arctic and radioactivity from nuclear accidents, such as Chernobyl and Fukushima, spread over large areas. This whole paragraph while plagiarized “Problems That the Earth’s Atmosphere Faces” has some important information about things we do here on Earth that effect our protector, our atmosphere.

It’s a short Blog this week and it wound up being doom and gloom but as long as there is there’s hope for any issue you can think of. There’s never a time to give up and ample time for change. Until next week; keep your homes well.

Blog – Zika 7/20/2016

If you’d rather not leave a comment or just don’t have the time please click the like button at the bottom of the page.


July 20th, 2016

The Zika virus gets it’s name from the Zika forest of Uganda where the virus was first isolated in 1947. In 1950 it was known to occur in a narrow equatorial belt from Africa to Asia and has reached pandemic (world wide in this case) levels in 2015 – 2016. While there is no vaccine for the illness the symptoms, which can be very mild, may be treated with acetaminophen. The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) issued a travel alert for the following countries which I’ve taken from Wikipedia – Zika fever.

  • Cape Verde
  • Many parts of the Caribbean: Aruba, Barbados, Bonaire, Cuba, Curaçao, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Jamaica, Martinique, Puerto Rico, Saint Lucia, Saint Martin, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Sint Maarten, Trinidad and Tobago, and the U.S. Virgin Islands
  • Most of Central America: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama
  • Mexico
  • Several Pacific Islands: American Samoa, Fiji, Kosrae, Marshall Islands, New Caldonia, Samoa, and Tonga
  • Most of South America: Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, Suriname, and Venezuela

Columbia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, and Jamaica officially advised women not to get pregnant at this time.

Zika type mosquitoesZika originated in a monkey, mosquito, monkey cycle. I do not know how it became a human, mosquito, human cycle; possibly mutation. The CDC states that it’s not in the later of the cycles in the continental United States. Our 1,306 cases are sexually transmitted cases. We have the Zika virus and  we have the types of mosquitoes that carry and spread the virus but in order for the Zika virus to become mosquito borne it must accomplish a time sensitive task. The mosquito must bite an infected person within the first week of the infection. Then it must live long enough to bite an uninfected person. This must happen several times. The fact that so many other countries and territories are mosquito borne it appears that it may be the writing on the wall. The U.S. and it’s territories have 4,211 cases. The Aedes agypti spreads the virus and the Ades albopictus carries it (the locations of each are in the maps above).

Zika coupleIt’s well known that males can infect their partners. It’s not known that females can infect males. This report shows that a man can get Zika from a woman. But what if he was bitten by a mosquito in the week preceding his illness and just forgot or maybe didn’t even feel it. This report stands on nothing but his and her personal testimony. I don’t know what the findings will eventually be but I hope that men can not catch it from women because it would decrease the spread. Casual sex between a couple of people is no big deal. They’ll be sick a few days and in 2 weeks almost no-one will be able the virus was ever there but there are those for which Zika is a living hell.

Zika microcephaly babySome infants and their parents have to be going through the most disheartening experience that they’ll ever have when finding out their baby has microcephaly. Microcephaly is when the infant undergoes abnormal head and brain development. The mom and dad will need lots of extra help and lots of extra strength. With Zika the child could have mental and motor function disabilities. They could suffer seizures or dwarfism but most notable defect is mircocephaly. It’s up to everyone to do whatever they can to reduce the incidents of Zika whether they’re expecting or not. I’m going to start taking more precautionary measures than I normally would. My State, Connecticut, is fairly high among reported cases of Zika. We own 2% of the continental United State’s cases. That’s 30 people. You can check your State’s numbers here. With Brazil as an example, I can tell you there were 2,782 suspected cases of microcephaly in 2015 compared to 2014 – 147 and 2013 – 167 cases.

GBS (Guillain-Barre’ Syndrome has also increased which can lead to death. During the 2013 – 2014 outbreak in French Polynesia there were 42 cases reported in 3 months as compared to 3-10 cases annually before the outbreak. GBS causes the immune system to damage the peripheral nervous system.

DY580H Mid adult man lying in bed looking at thermometer readingIf you think you may have Zika, the symptoms are similar to dengue fever, you should see your doctor about further reaching implications. There is no vaccine so some would say that’s useless advice but I think others would like to monitor it. Fever, rash, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain, and headache are all symptoms. There’s also things you my want to do to prevent Zika. This is also from Wikipedia – Zika fever.

  • Cover exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants
  • Use an insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE), or IR3535
  • Always follow product directions and reapply as directed
  • If you are also using sunscreen, apply sunscreen first, let it dry, then apply insect repellent
  • Follow package directions when applying repellent on children. Avoid applying repellent to their hands, eyes, or mouth
  • Stay and sleep in screened-in or air-conditioned rooms
  • Use a bed net if the area where you are sleeping is exposed to the outdoors
  • Cover cribs, strollers and carriers with mosquito netting for babies under 2 months old.

18 international companies are in the race for a vaccine. One company, Inovio Pharmaceuticals got the go ahead to start human trails in June of 2016. An FDA approved vaccine may be a decade or more away. Other experimental methods are being applied to the scenario. Genetic modification to the mosquito so that they can’t transmit pathogens is one method. Another is infecting the mosquito with Wolbachia bacterium to reduce vector (spreader) compliance. Finally a Gene Drive which aims to sterilize the male mosquito, reducing the population.

Zika long sleevesOccupational Parenting would surely have it’s workers out with strategies in every home for the alert level they want to follow. They’d be answering questions like “Do we really have to wear long sleeve shirts and long pants in the heat of the day.” The WHO (World Health Organization) would probably set minimal guidance requisite which is international law when there is a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. How would they enforce such laws? This is where we as Americans have to keep our eyes wide open. Laws based on everyone’s collective well being should be carried out but if a little old lady in Florida says “I don’t want to where a long sleeve shirt. It’s 90 degrees”. Zika insect repellentIs someone now or ever going to force her to put on a long sleeve shirt at gunpoint. Maybe it would be the United Nations or even the American police. We’re not at that extreme but it’s good to think of it so that we may steer away from it long before it gets here. Obviously the woman would offered every other option to include air conditioned clothing (I think it’s in our future) or mosquito repellent. If she still didn’t comply shed have to go under house arrest. Her choice of her house or a government owned house where she will stay until the mosquito population is no longer a danger or she’s willing to put on repellent or a long sleeved garment. If the garment posed risks to her such as heat stroke it will be waived but weighed against even one infected mosquito bite, against even one baby born with born with microcephaly or other abnormality, and the number of people who want it waived. Occupational Parenting  is an economic system that seeks the well-being of the children first and never seeks to infringe upon individual’s rights or the Constitution. The person who says “I don’t want to protect myself against mosquito bites. Ain’t my kid,” would definitely no longer be acceptable and still that dickhead would have the same options as the sweet little old lady. Governing should be all for one and one for all. Until next week; keep your homes well.

Blog – The Police Shootings In Dallas And More 7/13/2016

If you’d rather not leave a comment or just don’t have the time please click the like button at the bottom of the page.

The Police Shootings In Dallas Texas And More

July 13th, 2016

The Dallas shootings MicahI can not agree with vigilantism, anarchy, or hate crimes. Micah Xavier Johnson was a cop hater pure and simple. The position of Police Officer is one of honor and integrity. A position where perfection is expected. There are more than 30,000 arrest every day that are lawful. It is the backbone of civilization. That being said, the system needs to be policed and it’s going to take Caucasian people to do it. The shootings of the 5 police officers in Dallas is unforgivable and if not blown up the assassin should gotten the death penalty as all murders should. There is however got to be no doubt reasonable or otherwise. This does not exclude police officers who are just as capable of murder as anyone else. As a matter of fact police and politicians should be held to a higher standard and harsher penalties. If they can’t accept that they shouldn’t be running for office or joining the force. Also they should have a bigger pay check. At least the police should. They need their pay to reflect the expectations placed upon them. They need more and continuous training while working fewer hours. Most people can’t be at their best after working a week of 12 hour shifts and we need the best to be at their best. It is a matter of life and death.

The shooter in Dallas, Micah Xavier Johnson of Mesquite Texas, received his due punishment and anyone else on the trigger should receive the same. We have to protect those who protect us provided that’s what they’re doing. Protecting all of us not just Caucasian or African American or any other ethnicity. I really don’t want this to be a black, white issue but it’s in all of our faces.

the dallas shooting african american crime rateThe crime rate for African Americans is off the charts. Does that include ethnical (for the lack of a real word. Race should be as positive a word as competition.) bias? Yes at every turn but I agree with Web Du Bios that the real issue is the end of slavery. I support this with the Rule of Anatomical Gender on The Human Element page. And the only way out of the stagnant pool of water that is the African American crime rate is is the Rule of Socialized Genetics also on The Human Element page. Caucasian Americans have their own set of socialized genetics to deal with. Some have an enormous ball and chain of bigotry in their genes while others are filled with anti-slavery deeds and sentiment. At any rate these attributes are embedded and woven into everything we do including the criminal justice system. The criminal conviction’s and incarceration of African Americans gives them less equity in society; the lowest paying jobs, broken homes, and corrosive heterogeneous communities (Homogeneous communities have less crime no matter the ethnicity) which result in more criminal convictions. African Americans are 3% more likely to be arrested and serve a 10% longer sentence for the same or lesser crime than that of Caucasians. Some say that those numbers are too low to be concerned with but would you put a trickle of gasoline on a fire?

the dallas shootings thomas jeffersonAfrican Americans would not be a free people today without the efforts of many, many Caucasian Americans like Thomas Jefferson (left) and John Quincy Adams. There are many, many more less renown fighters for African American freedom. Growing up I was paralyzed by bitterness, hatred, and bigotry. I had no comebacks to some intentionally mean spirited “black jokes” and being flat out called nigger, porch monkey, spade, and even a threat to my 13 year old sister to have a cross burnt on our lawn. I had some Caucasian friends, still I was an island and just wanted to avoid at all cost the fact that my skin was brown. While laying on a beach with a Caucasian buddy of mine a Caucasian person said “Why do you people lay out? You’re already black”. Feeling like I didn’t have the right to live, I was at a loss for words. My buddy shot right back, “Why do you people lay out to get darker in the first place”? I was filled with a joyous relief. It was the first, with one other time, and the last time one of my Caucasian friends came to my rescue in such a way. It was wonderful. Many times I had my Caucasian friends apologize for some Caucasian person being an asshole but it’s just not the same. I’d usually just say “It’s OK. It’s not you saying it”. All that to say Caucasians need to say more to other Caucasians. Make it of the utmost importance to not be grouped with the minority of true bigots. This gets very sketchy when it comes to family ties and those ties should not be broken but there should be no mistake that you as a Caucasian support the pride and well-being of all other ethnic groups (Not terrorist organizations). This is a shout out to the “white persons”. It’s the only way the system has ever changed or ever will in the near future.

the dallas shootings Philando-Castile-Alton-Sterling-678x381What about Louisiana and Minnesota? Was this police work at it’s best? No and Alton Sterling and Philando Castile had to pay the price; the death penalty. I watched the videos several times. In Louisiana in the first segment of the video it appears that Alton’s right arm may have been going for a gun. For some that’s enough to use deadly force but it’s not enough for the law.

Wikipedia- Deadly force, as defined by the United States Armed Forces, is force that a person uses causing, or that a person knows or should know would create a substantial risk of causing, death or serious bodily harm or injury. In most jurisdictions, the use of deadly force is justified only under conditions of extreme necessity as a last resort, when all lesser means have failed or cannot reasonably be employed.

One officer had his knee on Alton’s left arm leaving only his right arm to be restrained by the second officer. It’s clear to me that they could have disarmed him without killing him. By the time shots are fired he’s no longer resisting. One officer was left with one arm to restrain and he didn’t do it. If one police officer can’t restrain one arm I question all of police training. I think the officer intended (or contemplated) to kill Alton because he thought he could do so without accountability. If that is the case it was murder and should be punishable by death.

The shooting in Minnesota isn’t as cut and dry. It could be a miscommunication. Philando Castile was shot four times by a St. Anthony police officer. Diamond Reynolds, Philando’s fiance’, claims that the officer instructed them to put there hands in the air and that they complied. She says he then instructed Philando to get his license and registration and that he was reaching for his wallet. While reaching for his wallet he told the officer that he had a firearm. She began to yell “He’s licensed to carry” and the officer shot him four times in the arm (obviously more than just his arm). Is Diamond lying about the sequence of events? The officer states that “I told him not to reach for it. I told him to get his hand off of it”. Did he really give the instruction? Did he give Philando time to follow the instruction? Was the instruction clear and concise? Who said and who heard what could have been lost in the heat of the moment. She could have been yelling “He’s licensed to carry” at the same time as the officer was saying “I told him not to reach for it”. All indicators suggest that Philando Castile would have complied with police direction, had it been given or if he’d have heard it. I wonder if the officer was not the voice of authority during the incident. In the Army they say, “Sound Off” and we know to say it loud and say it like we mean it. In this case who knows what was said never mind how loud it was. The testimony of a bystand as to what should have been heard for quite a distance would be good to have. The officers involved were Jeronimo Yanez and Joseph Kauser. Yanez was the shooter. Jeronimo Yanez is also not white.

the dallas shootings scalesWe shouldn’t settle for “Well the system’s not perfect.” We have very real deficits in this Country one leaning on the other like a  house of cards. We have a Country that’s run by “We the People” (arguably), we need an economy based on “We the People”. Occupational Parenting doesn’t leave “have nots”. Everyone who wants to be is a “have”. Some folks earn more and some less but there’d be no working poor. How much would sociology, psychology, and education advance toward fixing our broke dick and rigged system? How different would police training be? And what would be the difference in African American crime statistics? It would be unrecognizable compared to what we see today. Power and political awareness back to the People. Until next week; keep your homes well.

Blog – What Does The Second Amendment Read? 7/6/2016

If you’d rather not leave a comment or just don’t have the time please click the like button at the bottom of the page.

What Does The Second Amendment Read?

July 6th, 2016

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. (Ratified December 15th 1791)

To me the argument about what the 2nd Amendment reads is just crazy. The right of the people to keep and bear arms is just that. Why would any part of the Amendment undo any other part of the Amendment in any way. Also folks argue “well the forefathers really meant this or really meant that”; an equally unstable argument. The people in our forefather’s time were doing exactly what our forefathers intended in their time and it was a lot less regulation than today.

My brother is one of the best arguementalist that I know and he argues that the Second Amendment doesn’t give the individual the right to keep and bear arms. He says only the people in a well regulated militia have the right to keep and bear arms. He uses the Articles of Confederation to define what a “well regulated militia” is. You may read his email if you choose (Jamison’s Entry).

What does the second amendment read militia (1)I argue that the Articles of Confederation is not a dictionary first of all and it’s a superseded document. It’s instruction to the use of firearms is part of why it was replaced. This is taken from the Wikipedia page in my brother’s email.

“Antifederalists feared what Patrick Henry termed the “consolidated government” proposed by the new Constitution. They saw in Federalist hopes for commercial growth and international prestige only the lust of ambitious men for a “splendid empire” that, in the time-honored way of empires, would oppress the people with taxes, conscription, and military campaigns. Uncertain that any government over so vast a domain as the United States could be controlled by the people, Antifederalists saw in the enlarged powers of the general government only the familiar threats to the rights and liberties of the people”.

what does the second amendment read nuclear warheadsThough I’m sure our forefathers foresaw the evolution of warfare they probably didn’t plan on nuclear warheads, and RPGs. The armored tank may have been foreseeable but not realized. The American people could not realistically defend ourselves against today’s military if the government went imperial and commanded a lock down. We can however die trying. what does the second amendment read americn empireTo meet the concerns about a totalitarian government anyone can start a well regulated militia to defend the freedom of the United States; “The People” already being armed. “Well regulated” is to say the Amendment is not in support of anarchy or vigilantism. “We the People” is all the people not just rich civilians, government, poor civilians, or military but all of them combined.

For the sake of my brother’s argument I’ve taken the definition of well, regulate, and militia from the Random House Webster College Dictionary. Jamison argues that the use of words in that day differ from the use of the same words today. While there may be some truth to that, I have to say it’s not a different language and by his argument the entire Constitution as well as any other writings of the day would all have to translated into a modern tongue to be of any use at all.

Well: 1. in a good or satisfactory manner: Our plans are going well. 2. thoroughly, carefully, or soundly: shake well before using. 3. in a moral or proper manner: to behave well . 4. commendably, meritoriously, or excellently: a difficult task well handled. 5. with propriety, justice, or reason: I could not well refuse. 6. with favor or approval: to think well of someone. 7. comfortably or prosperously: to live well. 8. to a considerable extent or degree: a sum well over the amount agreed upon. 9. with great or intimate knowledge: to know a person well. 10. certainly; without doubt: I cry easily, as you well know. 11. with good nature without rancor: he took the joke well. – adj. 12. in good health; sound in body and mind: he is not a well man. 13. satisfactory, pleasing, or good: all is well with us. 14. proper, fitting, or gratifying: it is well that you didn’t go. 15. in a satisfactory position; well off: I am very well as I am – interj. 16. (use to express surprise, reproof, etc.): well there is no need to shout. 17. (use to introduce a sentence, resume  conversation, etc.): well it is time to go. – n. 18. well-being; good fortune; success: to wish well to someone. – Idiom.19. as well, in addition: also; too. 20. as well as, as much or as truly as; equally as: witty as well as kind. 21. leave well enough alone, to avoid changing something that is satisfactory.

Regulate: 1. To control or direct by a rule, principle, or method. 2. To adjust in accordance with some standard or requirement , as of amount or degree: to regulate the temperature. 3. To adjust as to ensure accuracy of operation: to regulate a watch. 4. To put in good order: to regulate the digestion.

Militia: 1. A body of citizens enrolled for military service. called out periodically for drill but serving full time only in emergencies. 2. A body of citizen soldiers distinguished from professional soldiers. 3. All able-bodied males eligible by law for military service.

I had at one point found a definition that included “forces to rebel against an oppressive government”. Definitions that include that aspect of militia seem to be suppressed on the internet at this time. Lol

what does the second amendment read fat cats playing chessNow that we’ve defined a well regulated militia, does the 2nd amendment read that “only a well regulated militia can be armed?” No, of course it doesn’t. But it does read that a well regulated militia of the armed citizens is the only way to preserve freedom. In this day if the Government, bought by big business, distinguished itself from “We the People” in an oppressive manner we would need as much of the military as possible to stand with “We the People” to preserve the freedoms and rights that we do and should ferociously protect. I for one have served to protect the interest of this Nation which I can freely criticize on subjects of war or any manner of corruption. I’m grateful to be able to say we’re stupid for not implementing Occupational Parenting decades ago. (I type stupid for the sake of my cynical readers. It’s really a sleepiness.)  I think ,can express, and can protest to the view that politician’s bank books should be totally transparent while serving in office. Just think do all the offshore investment opportunities set up conflict to the American interest. The potential is sure. That may be considered in another Blog. We can (although not advisable) call the President an ignorant nigger with the Governmental protection to do so. I love this Country and I do not think Barrack Obama is an ignorant nigger or anything close to what that would describe.     

what does the second amendment read self defenseI unfortunately have Schizo Affective Disorder and can not own a gun. I wish this was not the case but it’s something I just have to deal with. I do believe in extensive background checks (not extensive waiting periods) but the rights of people to own and carry firearms is not to be infringed. If we elected a President and Congress that just went really badly we wouldn’t do away with democracy? No. We’d vote in new leaders. Far more people are killed by knives than guns but we’re not going to do away with knives. Ask yourself why is there even an Amendment about guns. There’s no amendment for knives. The early American Government wanted a measure of freedom that could never be made illegal and it’s all about the protection of citizens of the United States. If everyone in a mall was carrying a gun the damaged from any psychopath would be greatly reduced. This is not vigilantism. It’s self defense and anyone who would outlaw self defense is a spineless worm and fearful overlord. I can’t buy a weapon to defend myself but I want to be surrounded by those who can.

what does the second amendment read overdoseGetting rid of guns won’t stop suicide nor will it stop homicide. Get rid of guns and the number of stabbings is sure to increase; the number of overdoses will increase. I think using the pain and suffering of a family who has become victim to a shooting is certainly governmentally unsound and it’s morally disgusting. To every upside there is a downside. The downside to the availability of guns is the horrible shootings that fill our media far to often. I’m not sure about this writer’s numbers but I really do think there’s an upside to gun ownership. Fact Sheet: Guns Save Lives speaks more about that upside. There’s the opinion that the downside outweighs the upside in Ban the Second Amendment. The numbers in the two article don’t jive so someone’s lying through there computer keys or the data can just manipulated to get whatever result you want.

what does the second amendment read teaching childrenI definitely am a person for the People and I want every American under the Sun to be a part of that People. I want what’s best for us and more so our posterity. I like to mention Occupational Parenting in every Blog. It is an economic system not a political system. Within it is room to honor every word of the Constitution. I am a person that looks to the future quite a bit and the future I look to doesn’t outlaw everything that can be dangerous. It teaches the young how to coexist with all the dangers they may encounter. We teach the young to be a cracked and fragile island amongst an ocean of tsunamis and hurricanes. When we see that’s it’s not well we increase the size of the cracked and fragile island. Somewhere in the Universe this will not be so. Until next week; keep your homes well.
