In the 58 yrs I’ve been around I have been watching the american people and I think that they are losing ALL sense of REALITY! I feel sorry for the people that believe ANYONE should own an assault weapon, because our constitutional rights guarantee it, and they are only used as hunting weapons they are sadly mistaken. Being a Vietnam vet I know they are only designed for the use of hunting HUMANS. Our background checks fall seriously short when evaluating whether or not someone should be allowed to even own a weapon! I have 2 people below me in this apartment building, with documented mental issues, and they are allowed to own pistols! I feel I need to put armor plating on my floor to protect me. They have semi-automatic handguns, with a round IN the chamber on the dining room table daily! Documented MENTAL issues? Really? I would rather count on our ALL VOLUNTEER FORCE and the capabilities the U.S. has to keep ALL of us safe! I have NO problems with personal security weapons, but only to those without mental issues! PLUS people who allow their weapons to be stolen should ALSO be prosecuted! And, I could fix the murder ate by taking absolutely guilty people and letting the victims family break 1 bone each month televised! No doctor, 1 bone per month. Let pending criminals watch that and see if the murder rate goes down!
Next issue: We (The U.S.) has an overabundance of “THIEVES” in it! I have lost count of all the cases of theft from the “PEOPLE” of the U.S.. I’m tired of the slap on the wrist that they get. Restitution is a joke and Jail won’t fix it either. What’s the answer? Deport them to where their ancestors came from because the good people of the U.S. don’t want them? The Economy? No because all of the corporate people make millions off the poor peoples backs. Why not create a limit for the privilege of living and earning in the best country in the world? The president makes 440,000$ per year, Could you live on that salary? How about no one gets to keep more than 440,000$ per year and contributes the rest to the benefit of the best country in the world! The worst slums in the U.S. (Washington DC or Appalachia) wouldn’t exist!
We should fix our foreign oil dependency as well as use our highly intelligent minds to branch out to other resources. We should create new modes of transportation not dependent on oil! Greed stopped development didn’t it? ALL of you know this!
Next issue- Our society has lost sight of REALITY! people are more worried about people talking about them and how we (Americans) perceive obese, gays,CD’s and all the other categories there are out there! big IS BEAUTIFUL, gay IS OK!. really? If I had to go to war again I do not want a woman or a gay in a foxhole and have to depend on them. I have to watch what I say and defend them to the hilt! Count on them not to RUN?
Next issue: Monitoring our phones and stuff! It is a good practice because we can catch the idiots in our midst before anyone gets killed for a misguided belief. If you aren’t doing shit like that then the only issue is what is the info being used for? Legislation can fix that. I’m doing whatever I want and as long as I live by the rules who cares? I want a RECALL election on ALL members of Congress, The House and the Senate. The past years there has been nothing but kicking the can down the road about the budget. How many trillion dollar weapons platforms do we really need?
That’s just a sample of the reforms I would do to make this country great again! I couldn’t make everyone happy but that’s what democracy is! If nothing continues to get done the UNITED STATES will fail fairly soon!
