Ok, here is the thing, when it comes to gun control and the entire debate, here is the thing: All rights in the bill of rights have limits. No right
is unlimited; there is a line in the sand, which once crossed ceases to be protected. And when it comes to gun control, and the entire second
amendment, the conversation needs to change.
There are parts of the country, programs and things that the other parts of modern day America, that we all enjoy that have a strong socialist
background. And as much as many would say that they do not like such, the reality is that they would cry foul if they are not getting or benefitting
from those programs, or the results of those programs.
I think that they need to tighten the controls on food stamps. And start to shrink where such can be used, to remove it from areas like say a
The problem is that the way that such is determined is not realistic, nor does it paint an accurate picture of what a person really should be paid,
for doing 8 hours of work. Many are looking at the fact that often those who are skilled and can not get a job in their chosen field, often end up
having to take a basic job, but the pay is not there for them to be supporting and self sufficient.
While yes, it is almost 2019, however the policies, both public and private have not been updated. And while yes that the country has had its first
black president, the issues that were there before, are still present, just now more in the light of day, and out of the darkness. Racism is still
very much alive, well and kicking in the USA. And it is out in the open. I agree public housing is a trap. But until policies, like say the Red
Line of a neighborhood, is changed, it will never get better, and will continue.
These people, the ones from Central America, seeking asylum in the USA, as much as many would not like, is a mess, that is from the US policy when it
came to Latin America. It was a result of the economic, strategic and national security policy from years past, that is now catching up with the
country. Should we just ignore it cause it is unpopular, or take responsibility for the mess, and work on fixing it and cleaning up the mess.
No, the statement about illegal immigrants is very much correct. Those who came to the new world, were never invited to be here, not by the native
peoples, and when they got here, it devastated the population, the inhabitants here often kicked off of their land, swindled, killed and their way of
life destroyed. And many of them later on, did not want to deal with the US government, and the broken treaties are still present. Funny you mention
the jobs how people would go out and take them, yet there is no news on people making a bee line to say the agriculture area of the country, to
harvest the food we eat. And most people I know don’t want to scrub a toilet.
The statement I made about Pro-choice stands, it is about controlling women. To make abortion illegal as many would want, would result in the loss of
freedom and right that is present. And like painting a floor, the argument that is presented by those who are anti abortion, have no viable options.
And the things that were mentioned, needs to be in the conversation.
The President set some lofty goals, and as much as new infrastructure, and even maned exploration to MARS, however, that requires professionals who
are trained and know the advanced mathematics, and physics. Engineers, doctors, and other professionals who have the skills to make that happen.
While I do agree about the trade schools, but those are too far and few between. And colleges far out number them. Those cost money and if the
country is going to modernize and push back into the forefront of innovation, then such needs to be in the budget and that comes from the Taxes.
However, if we look at the national budget, the country is not geared for that and that is what needs to be changed. Why are we supporting Israel
