How about this for a new idea ?

24 Jan

When C.S.I.S or Homeland Security  (depending on which country you happen to be living in) find and detain a terrorist individual or force from another nation within our borders attempting to perpetrate some sort of bad act they are held without the sort of rights which regular people have. This is only right for if they were to be released they would simply go back to attempting to damage our nations once again. There have been countless occasions when terrorists have been caught trying to do extremely heinous acts, and there have been those who were not caught and have managed to complete their missions… We all know what 9/11 means, before that date if you were to simply state that combination of numbers to someone it would have meant absolutely nothing.

Our nations are still fighting a seperate war within our borders and for some reason we seem to give these terrorists all the rights that regular citizens are given. I speak now of GANGS; these violence seeking, murderous thugs think nothing of taking up arms to kill others. They have no remorse when an innocent is gunned down and seem to laugh at the law knowing that the various rights afforded citizens will set them free. In fact it takes a great deal of work for law inforcement to actually put some of these arrogant, lawless, ignorant killers behind bars. They play the system to allow themselves the least amount of jail time as is possible.

We need to toughen the laws regarding violent crime a great deal. The three strike rule needs to become a single strike rule should the person be a proven Gang member. THE VERY SAME LAWS WE ASSERT ON FOREIGN TERRORISTS WE NEED TO SPREAD OUT TO COVER THE GANGS OF OUR TWO NATIONS ( America and Canada ). Any Gang member caught in possession of a firearm should get life without parole, the reason I say this is because you can bet dollars to doughnuts that the perp was not going to use the weapon to dig a patch of soil. Some say that to adopt measures such as this would fill corrections facilities too quickly. I have a very simple answer to this, BUILD MORE FACILITIES WITH THE FUNDS CAPTURED FROM DRUG BUSTS.

Drugs captured should no longer be destroyed but rather sent to special drug companies where they can be broken down into the medical use drugs that can be destributed to the V.A and Homeless at no charge to cover properly diagnosed illness.  There are a great number of small solutions which put together would make a big difference however first we need to stop the scurge of the Gangs who rule most of the large cities in both of our nations…..Twitchel

The Gross need of revamping to the 2nd Amendmend in the 21 Century

5 Jan

The Second Amendment was written in the middle of the 1700’s at that time the armed forces of America was not the largest force under Arms in the WORLD. When the charter was constructed the collection of states needed everyone to be ready for a day when they might be attacked by someone. That is why the Amendment was placed in the Constitution, things are most certainly different now therefore the second amendment needs to be revamped.

There are shops in America selling arms almost on every corner, this practise is over zealous and leads to the statistic which I quote next. America TOPS the list of nations when it comes to deaths caused by firearms, that could be murder, suicide, or accident. The U.S.A has topped this list for so long that the list now is compiled by the C.D.C  (center for Disease control ). The only nations who even come close are those which have huge Gang War problems such as Mexico, and Brazil and they are even lower than America.

The U.S.A = 14.24 gun deaths per 100,000

Brazil is second = 12.95

Mexico ( with all its gang violence ) = 12.69

The lowest nation in the study was Japan with a miniscule rating of  0.05 and that must have been an accident, my nation of

Canada was a lot higher than Japan but we came in with a score of 4.31.

Some of the most ridiculous things I see present in the U.S is to start with the availability of such things as Semi Automatic Large Caliber weapons which can be turned into fully Automatic man killers with a simple change, this modification can be found on the Internet.  More over I must ask the question, Who needs a 50 Caliber rifle to go hunting or shoot at sheets of paper at a range?  These are weapons of war in fact the U.S Army use these things as snipers weapons in Iraq and Afganistan. I doubt a squirrel needs such a bullet to put it down. The same thing goes for a number of hand guns, some of them are simply too large to be worthwhile and only stroke a persons ego not protect them.

People in America state that they NEED guns to protect them from bad guys, and that to take away their weapons would only leave weapons in the hands of villians. Truth is that if the 2nd amendment had been taken down 50 years ago most of the tragedies we hear about these days would never have occured. The facts are simply this if the law regarding guns were to be taken down and arms were taken away. Laws regarding the use of arms in the perpetration of a crime would also need to be changed a great deal. In my mind if the guns were to be taken from law abiding people and a crime was commited using a gun, the criminal would be shot on the spot by the officer who attended the scene. Accidents would be a different case, but an accident is an easy thing to seperate from a crime i should think.

If we can stop a number of suicides simply by taking the guns out of the hands of some people then we have done a wonderful thing, some will find another way and that cannot be helped. However some will be stopped and that is good, as for the accidents well that simply speaks for itself.

the job that nobody SHOULD want…law enforcement

28 Dec

It is the kind of work where the employee will never become rich, in fact the wage is only average at best. The employees face danger every single shift and many have died in the line of duty. The average constable does not do glorified work in fact most of the public see them as an impediment to their daily lives and treat the on duty officer with disdain and a terrible attitude. If we look logically we will find that from the time the regular officer, whether he is driving with a partner on a beat in a particular area, or is walking a beat alone, or with a partner until the time they arrive back at the station house to punch out at the end of a shift are subjected to the very worst of what society has to offer.

A policeman is not called because someone is having a wonderful time. The Police are not called because there is no social problem to see to. NO, the police are summoned because the very worst members of society are acting outside of accepted social standards. That could be Junkies, Drunks, Prostitutes, Domestic Abuse cases, It could be because the people involved had used a weapon of some kind to subdue someone they did not like, that could mean that someone is dead. They might be called to a D.U.I where the chance of someone being killed is far greater, possibly a child.

If the police officer is working in the lower 48 states ( America ) then there is a number of other possibilities going all the way out of normal to include Terrorist attacks such as the events of 9/11. That isn’t to say that we here in Canada are immune to these outlaw acts however up until now we have been lucky.  Another thing that the law enforcement officers of America have to contend with far more than the members here in Canada do are Fire Arms Charges, for a great deal of social and cultural reasons beside the 2nd Ammendment which has done the U.S no great good at all. Canadians tend to think of Fire Arms a different way than do our neighbours to the South. The Cowboy element is not present here and anything that can eject a bullet is given a great deal more respect by all even the people who want weapons and see that as their right.

It is really quite amusing how people vilify the police who enforce laws; all the time they look down on them and jump to conclusions UNTIL they require their services. Then the very same people who were spitting on the officer the night before will be crying out for their help the next day. They will recieve that attention because they are citizens and are entitled to it, the night before will be forgotten because it has to be. I ask you to honestly answer this question WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO DO THAT?  My answer truthfully is that I might have a hard time arriving at the address within the required time.

So, next time you get pulled over for a ticket, and they ask to go through your car. Next time the police stop you and ask you some questions, try to think beyond what is happening at this very second.  You may fit the vehicle description of a murder suspect. There may be other things going on in the neighbourhood which you are not aware of.  Try to smile, take a deep breath and help the officer get through the affair, I am sure he would love to be doing something else to.  You never know later in the night you may be reaching for a phone to call those three digits 911 after which you will count the minutes which will seem like hours and you will be pi**ed off because you think that the average nine minutes took too long. Remember they are not sitting around waiting for your call they are busy. Probably dealing with stupid junk like a Domestic Disturbance, or a drunk who should have known better. However that is why they get paid the measly wage they do get paid…..Praxada

 

 

 

When Will the American Public Ever Learn

23 Dec

Next year will see yet another election year come to America and even now the Republicans are busty trying to find a candidate the American public will stand behind. When NewtGingritch is top of the short list I can safely say that the party is headed for a long and protracted decline all begun by George Bush and his disgusting fiscal policies prior to 2008 and the take over of the Democrats.

The major problem for the Democrats is that they have had only four years to undo and repair all the damage of so many years of Republican leadership. The idea of simply piling Tax cuts upon Tax cuts for the idle rich top two percent going back so many years all the way back to Clinton is simply illustrating how idealistically backrupt the Republican party really is. They have not been able to come up with a single new idea since that last Democratic leadership of the Clinton’s.

The Republicans even took this morally bankrupt idea to their bailout of Wall Street when they simply handed over the money to the banks with NO oversight at all. Simply believing that they would do the right thing was tantamount to allowing criminals out of jail believing that they would change their ways now that they have seen what prison is like.

It was the very same banks who had caused the fall of 2008 in the first place that Bush gave the money to and they were supposed to lend the funds out to the average man in order to stimulate the economy…All they stimulated was their bonus cheques. It used to be that Lawyers and Jounalists got the rap for being the most morally bankrupt. Now Investment Bankers take that title running away and with just cause. Almost every one working on Wall Street has caused harm to someone in the States. Capitalism as a pure model of Economics is DEAD!

Of all the G8 nations after the 2008 debacle, it was Canada who came out functioning the best, and why was that. We came out on top because we simply do not allow sub- prime mortgages. When I first heard of Sub-Primes I was so upset that I posted on many Republican Chat sites regarding the idea of Sub Primes and I stated that these sort of Mortgages would cause great damage to the American Banking system. What I did not know at that time was how invested the European Banks were in this corrupt concept. There are still a number of economic concepts which are just as corrupt and are still in use today…DERIVATIVES: Micheal Moore did a documentary on these and the Sub Prime situation I thought it had its points however M.M tends to overplay various points in order to sell his various movies.

The Dem’s have only had four years so far to correct all the decades of foul play that the Republicans have accumulated. That is not nearly enough time to correct the deeds and give America back to its people in better shape than it was. The biggest problem is that Americans in general are a group of INSTANT GRATIFICATION voters.   The slogan which broadly illustrates the average voter in America is ” WHAT  HAVE YOU DONE FOR ME LATELY”.  They want all the goodies which a good government should afford them but they do not want to pay for them in the form of taxes.

In Canada the five major banks are legislated by the Government ( no cost to the public ), Health Care is taken care of by the Government, we do have to pay a small fee in most provinces. There has been a lot of negative hype regarding our health system and wait times…My mother suffered a stroke this spring she was treated within minutes, my father has alzheimers and has oh going health needs which required him to be in hospital for over six months until they found a permenant placement for him in an extended care facility. the whole thing didn’t cost our family a single penny. Myself, I have medical needs which require that I take close to a dozen different medications, between the government and a supplimental coverage which I pay every three months of three hundred dollars. I do not pay anything for my meds and I can pick up what I need on a twenty four hour notice.  If there is a problem I can work with the pharmacy until things are sorted out, i never miss out on my medications. THIS IS THE OBJECTIVE AMERICA SHOULD BE HEADED TOWARD however with a Capitalist agenda behind everything it will never happen i fear.

I do hope that Americans are wise enough to re-elect President Obama once more he deserves the opportunity to work toward his health care and other kinds of policies including closing Qantanamo Bay.  Be aware America that the Republicans are not interested in increasing the quality of life for the average American, all they want is to give money to the top 2% yet again, after all it is from that percentile that they get the money to run for Senate / Congress / The House for yet another term…
