Most Democrats will agree that the 2nd amendment guarantees guns for hunting. Some will concede that the 2nd amendment provides for the right to self-defense.

Few Democrats understand the idea of a gun as an equalizer— In the event that you are to be victimized by someone with a gun you want a gun of equal or greater power. Most will acknowledge that a stranger might victimize someone with a gun. Some will acknowledge that a friend or family member might victimize someone with a gun.

It is ludicrous, however, to assume that people have the inherent right to protect themselves from a tyrannical government. “Not in 2018″. “That would never happen”… However, on Wednesday, President Donald Trump said “Take the gun first, go through due process second,” Such an action by the government would not only violate the 2nd amendment, but also the 4th amendment.

People have the rights to defend themselves and their liberties; for freedom is not granted by nor can it be rescinded by the government. The Bill of Rights is a statement of rights that we hold to be endowed upon us by our creator.

If we can freely disregard any of our RIGHTS as outdated why not disregard all of them?

For the record, Obama disregarded the Bill of Rights as well. Off the top of my head, Obama violated the 4th, 6th, 8th, and 10th amendments of the Bill of Rights.

FDR violated many with the imposition of internment camps.

Lincoln violated many with the declaration of martial law.

Just because someone may have an immaculate reputation, it does not mean that their actions should not be questioned or there Patriotism was unwavering.

Not only that but as an even bigger slap in the face, he told DIANNE FEINSTEIN (yes, you read that name correctly) that Senate leadership should amend her national “Assault Weapons” ban into existing legislation that seems to be moving in the Senate!
To make matters even worse, Congress is caving.
And some members of Congress — including some Republicans — are actively supporting these insane gun control bills.
If you can’t tell already, we are under attack from all sides.
The anti-gunners are salivating at the chance to have a Republican president and Congress annihilate the Second Amendment.
We can’t let that happen.
We need you to take action NOW and tell Congress and the President that the MUST uphold the Second Amendment by shooting down any and all anti-gun bills that come their way.
The future of our fundamental rights depends on you.
Stand up and Save the Second Amendment!

Judging yourself and having doubts about your own actions is a sign of mental health. The smarter or more mentally healthy someone is the more they are self reflective . The most successful people have the highest metacognition . The only people that don’t doubt themselves are psychopaths that’s a fact. I can tell you that every Super successful person who has a clear vision of what they want still has doubts. I think many people look at people that have clear goals and feel like they don’t have doubts or fear, they do ! I know people feel they can’t achieve their vision because they have doubts and they are too weak. They feel like they should have absolute certainty all the time and that is the only way they can achieve their goals. They feel like their doubts disqualify them from happiness and success . It is the opposite belief is hanging in to your dream when you are filled with doubt . Every person who has achieved a goal has fought their doubts , it’s not that they don’t have them it’s just they choose not to focus on them. This is where the learned tools come in to play , writing, goal setting, generosity, meditation or reading a page like this everyday , these are the tools anyone can learn to suppress your fears and doubts and think about what you want. But understand that doubt is normal , you are not flawed or weak or unworthy if you feel it . The more you want something the more doubts you will fight . It’s a balancing act you have your dreams on one side and doubts in the other , if you do nothing , take no actions your doubts will win, negative thinking will win. But if you do something , take some action consistently toward your goals you will tip the scale of belief in your favor . Success is having big dreams and also big doubts but you move forward just the same , you don’t lose faith and you don’t give up .

So glad to have seen this product in the works for many, many months and finally a reality.

This is a major step forward for patients who need reliable, non-emergency medical transport, and a cost cutting measure for the healthcare industry.

Missed appointments open up a huge risk factor for those who are most troubled by chronic diseases and major illnesses, as well as cause missed opportunities for other patients to be scheduled into those time slots ahead of time and evidently a less efficient and successful day for those respective medical staff who all work together to achieve one aim: getting the patient seen and well taken care of.

Looking forward to the first major impact that HIPAA compliant Uber Health brings in making this solution ubiquitous from city to city, across the US.

An article about projected improvements in health care. In the discussion about what these guys will address to “transform health care” they listed “several key areas” they would like to address. Fourth of five was “Promoting Healthy Living”. Hoping they are not in order of perceived importance. At least they included it!

First sentence under that heading was encouraging: acknowledging that “90% of health care spending was on chronic diseases that could be dramatically reduced with healthier living”.

But then they went on to say:
“Some 40% of Americans never get their prescriptions filled, and 40% of those who do never get them refilled, says Andrews of the HealthTransformation Alliance. Perhaps Amazon can find technological ways to nudge people to take their medicine, eat healthier and get care when needed.”

Hey, if people ate healthier and moved more they may never need prescription meds. That would really disrupt our current system which relies on lots of patients and is pharmacy driven.

a) When the flight attendant tells you to turn off your phone in-flight and you refuse, instead deciding to argue, curse them out, and continue to stay connected……you can count on two things: 1) head of the line privileges off the flight and 2) an escort by people in uniforms. I would also venture to guess that you probably won’t make your connection so you might want to conserve your battery to make a call and let someone know you won’t be home at the regularly scheduled time……

b) There is a limit of one carton of cigarettes per adult over 18 when you enter Mexico (even though there is a Duty Free shop when you arrive that sells them super cheap so those who smoke are encouraged to purchase). HOWEVER, if you purchase more than one carton (or bring a carton and purchase a carton) you will get fined for that extra one – to the tune of about $250.

c) People aren’t the only ones who like the beach…..raccoons do too – and they <3 it even more when silly tourists feed them, which makes them continue to hang out near people. Obviously these people don’t realize that, in addition to rabies, raccoons also carry two other diseases – roundworm and leptospirosis – that can be transmitted to people and pets.

d) Some people just don’t get that whole “anything 3.5 oz or more of liquid must go in your checked luggage” thing. If you buy something with liquid after checking your luggage in one location that you can carry onto the plane – be it a soda or a bottle of vanilla extract (great option in Mexico, by the way) – and then you arrive in the US where you have to go through Immigration and Customs which involves getting your luggage and rechecking it, you will HAVE to put that bottle into your luggage or you will LOSE it when you go back through Security. Simple as that. And NO, it doesn’t matter that you have a friend that works in Customs…..five states away.

President Trump, in a pointed response to the uproar over charges of domestic violence by two top aides, cautioned Saturday that lives can be shattered by a “mere allegation” and asked whatever happened to “Due Process?”

It was his first tweet on the topic since he lauded his ousted staff secretary, Rob Porter, in brief remarks to reporters in the Oval Office Friday. He emphasized that Porter, who was forced to resign, had said “very strongly” that he was innocent.

The hour later, White House speechwriter David Sorensen also resigned over domestic abuse allegations. Sorensen has denied his wife’s claims.

Trump on Saturday redoubled his measured response to such charges, noting how damaging allegations can be.

“Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation,” he tweeted. “Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused — life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?”

Trump did not mention Porter by name. Nor, like his Oval Office remarks, did he mention the ex-wives who went public with the charges of domestic abuse.

In response, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., took to Twitter to blast the president’s position.

“Women’s lives are upended every day by sexual violence and harassment,” she wrote. “I’m going to keep standing with them, and trusting them, even if the President won’t.”

The president’s comments Friday were the first time he had spoken publicly about Porter since the allegations surfaced Wednesday in a report in the British tabloid The Daily Mail. 

Trump said he was saddened by the charges but pointed out that Porter has denied the accusations.

“He also, as you probably know, says he’s innocent and I think you have to remember that,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office in an unscheduled photo-op. “We absolutely wish him well, he did a very good job when he was at the White House.”

Those pleas of innocence come despite public accusations by Porter’s former spouses, including one who produced photos of a black eye she said Porter gave her while in Italy. In a written statement sent through the White House press office Wednesday, Porter said he took those photos, but that “the reality behind them is nowhere close to what is being described,” he said. He did not elaborate.

Trump has long cautioned against jumping to conclusions in cases of alleged sexual misconduct, including those directed at him by more than a dozen women.

In December, White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders briefed reporters on Trump’s views after three of his accusers called on Congress to investigate his past behavior.

Huckabee noted that Trump has denied the women’s allegations, that any incidents took place a long time ago and that voters settled the discussion when they elected Trump.

“(Trump) thinks it’s a good thing that women are coming forward, but he also feels strongly that a mere allegation shouldn’t determine the course,” she said. “In this case, the president has denied any of these allegations.”

In November, Trump also cautioned against rushing to judgment toward Roy Moore, the then-candidate for the Senate in Alabama who had been accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl and sexually assaulting another teenager.

“He says it didn’t happen,” the president told reporters at the White House. “You have to listen to him, also.”
