How does the PC world of being #PoliticallyCorrupt work?
#SchoolShooting delivers message that the people have little power over schools.
That is a full load of #dumbedDown #BullS #Manure that our government officials want us to believe.
#WeThePeople possess far more power over our governments than we ever imagined. It's about time we start to properly exercise that power.
Not disciplining people #Rewards their #BadBehavior as it tells the person that what they do is accepted by society.
#OneRoomSchools force students to get along with people of all age-groups, education-levels, and personalities. It also encourages students to come to the aide of others being bullied. All that along with students slower in one subject are frequently exposed to the subject with questions from other students that might help clarify that subject for that person.
If it takes a community to raise a child in good standing with that community; it also takes that community to produce criminals by not properly punishing bad or otherwise undesirable behavior.
The community (parents, siblings, friends, neighbors, teachers, and churches, among others) all possess responsibility for stopping bad acts of others. But.... when all those persons act badly toward an individual, in increases that person's likelihood of being a bad member of society -- just like the community they grow into. This is not always the case, in either direction. Some, with all going in their favor turn out bad and those with nothing in their favor turn out good.
The us importance of #IndividualChoice
#ParklandShooting article by mother, she states, "it truly took a village to raise him into a school shooter, I can't say [the shooter] killed my daughter, [the community] killed my daughter." Well mother, welcome to your community. YOU help raise that school shooter as well.
Question is: How is our #VotingSystem Compromised?
These united States of America present a rather believable #illusion of a #democratic voting system.
There are many forms of #Democracy as there also are many form of #Republics or #Dictators
The Democratic voting system established in these united States of America is not the #Plurality we exercise where whoever or whatever is on the ballot simply get one more vote than the competition; though that id one of the definitions that existed for the word plurality from 1756 and 1785.
Fortunately, from both sets of dictionaries, there also exists this definition for 1756 defines PLURALITY: "The greater number; the majority."
The voting system established in these united States of America for the people comes from this statement in The unanimous Declaration of the united States of America; "Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed." CONSENT from 1756 defines as "The act of yielding or consenting." Since the contract demands the act of consent, when there is a known number of voters (registered voters), whoever or whatever is on the ballot must receive the majority of the total number of registered voter's consenting votes, or the agreement is in the negative. Thus another definition from 1756 for To CONSENT "To be of the same mind; agree."
Yes, our voting system is compromised and severely corrupted.
Our own government destroyed our designed Democracy to ease the path by which corruption enters and stays within government. They do this -- an we the people allow because of our ignorance-- by not counting the vast majority of registered voters who do not go the polling stations. Therefore, they did NOT-Consent and non-consent is a valid vote.
Once we begin counting every registered voter's vote -- consent or non-consent -- well over 98% of the people in our elected offices cease to unlawfully occupy our government offices -- for lack of consent.
Statistics don't #Lie -- #Liars use Statistics
Apparently @realDonaldTrump started a new political trend. Speaking like real united States Americans who, from time to time, tend to cuss up a storm.
When selectively used, and not simply used to #BePopular various swear words can be very effective in delivering a message.
The question the user must ask is When is What word appropriate, When and Why is it being used before Whom?
If a person delivers the exact same words to very different audiences the results will also differ. Thus Statistics NEVER Lie. Liars USE Statistics.
#Statisticians know that the results of a survey depend upon two very important elements"
Let's talk about two fictitious alcohol survey/statistics
Survey one in both instances asks the same question; Is alcohol consumption beneficial?
Both surveys each ask 100 people from several different locations.
Survey ONE asks 100 people exiting from various alcohol-serving establishments (bars, restaurants, liquor stores).
Survey TWO asks 100 people during a church service at a variety of churches, alcoholics meeting and such.
As you would expect, the famous "9 out of 10" people in each instance are likely to produce quite the opposite results.
People can make any survey reveal any result they get paid to produce, by simply asking the "proper" set of people. So, the next time you see or hear someone using "statistics", ask yourself about the types of people asked, the question/s asked, etc.
The Centuries-Old Debate Over the Supremacy of #State v. #Federal #Powers
Apparently, a lot of underhanded activity was going on among the people we credit with being our nation's #FoundingFathers
In order to dissolve political powers of the colonies from Great Britain, the political leaders need to present to the people who would die on the battlefield a worthy objective -- worthy enough to get them to risk Life, Fortune, and Honor. That instrument, a binding contract titled, The unanimous Declaration of the united States of America,
To hear varied stories of each of the representative-signers of that Contract, as well as the representative-signers of our nation's two successive constitutions, which are The Articles of Confederation (1778) that was replaced by The Constitution for the United States of America (1790), they create a great design and plan for our nation and our governments. This got large bodies of people to risk and in many instance lose their Lives, their Fortunes, and their Honor defending that design -- all for nearly nothing as many of those signers immediately began returning us to the same described tyranny and despotism detailed in The unanimous Declaration.
Regardless of what those signers intended, the content of the contracts they signed on behalf of the people of these united States of America remain #BindingContracts among all united States American even today.
The unanimous Declaration concretely and unquestionably (that is unquestionably to an honorable person) declares that the governed people are the supreme authority over our governments. This would be, more precisely stated, the body of registered voters are the supreme authority over their respective levels of government (city, county, state, national/federal, etc.) Thus, #ThePeople are the #LeaderOfOurNation and the government officials are the people #Employees
To the original question: State v. Federal Supremacy?
The correct answer varies depending on whether it is the governments, the constitutions, and/or the laws that are under investigation.
The Constitution for the United States of America creates a #CircularSolution
Our nation's constitution, in Article 6, creates The Supreme Law of the Land. Its four elements are:
Every elected (legislative, executive, judicial), nearly all appointed (judges), and some hired government officers (police) swear an oath to The Constitution for the United States of America over and above the President, Governor, Legislators, and Judges. This makes The Constitution for the United States of America -- our nation's or the Federal Constitution Supreme over the State Constitutions, State Laws, County Laws, as well as City & Town Laws.
The only authority Supreme over the US Constitution is 3/4's of all the States' governments when they act in accord with The US Constitution's Article 5 -- The Amendment Article; which gives the States -- when unified for the purpose -- supremeacy over the federal government's powers.
This makes the federal/nation's government the servant to the States generally as authorized by the US Constitution.
The States, and all other smaller political jurisdictions become #SubjectTo the #Just and #Honorable powers #delegated to the federal government. None of the smaller political jurisdictions can pass laws that violate the nation's constitution or that violate the #ConstitutionalLaws made by the US Government.
WHEN the federal government exercises any power, passes any law, creates any office, etc that the US Constitution does not #SpecificallyAuthorize it is the States' duty to unify,and when 3/4 of the States agree; they amend the constitution to stop those unjust acts of government. The States may also unify in prosecuting all federal government persons who violate the US Constitution. The People of these united States of America may also do the same, not only to the Federal Government people, but also to the State Government people, County Government people, and the City/Town Government people.
The later part of Article 6 of the US Constitution tells us that "any thing in the constitution or the laws of any state to the contrary, notwithstanding". It is referring to being contrary to what it had just previously detailed as The Supreme Law of the Land.
When we look into the US Constitution's Amendments 9 & 10 we see an interesting relationship.
Amendment 9 deals with the people's rights that are not specifically enumerated/listed in the US Constitution. All of those unlisted rights are totally off-limits to all governments (city, county, state, and federal) from violating. That is -- until the specific right is listed in the US Constitution to allow government some expressly limited power regarding that right.
Our rights are superior over government powers.
Amendment 10 goes into detail regarding the supremacy of states powers over federal powers with respect to the US Constitution.
Though the powers are circular in argument, they really are clearly defined.
In this way, each of the larger-political jurisdiction that is created, it is created to serve the bodies that create it. The creators of that larger political jurisdiction retain responsibility for controlling it as well.
All of that, ultimately comes back to the people who are the final judges of all levels of government.
#PresidentialCandidate #MelodyCromby and comments I come up with being somewhat forced to listen to her sermon
The evidence tends to point towards that Jesus (or at the very least so many self-proclaimed followers) actually being the devil they claim to reject.
Curious: could it be that the bible is presented to reverse the names of the charaters of the #god with that of the #devilSerpent ?? It certainly would explain a lot of oddities.
"MY!!" #FirstAmendment Right
When anyone proclaims that they have the RIGHT to say what they want to say, and to say it as loud as they possibly can; they inevitably reference the US Constitution's #FirstAmendment -- all the time totally ignoring other people's #NinthAmenmentRight to not have to listen to the #ExcessiveVolume
Then, someone will claim that Amendment 9 makes no such claim.
Amendment 9: "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."
I know that I possess many other rights not listed in the Constitution and/or the Declaration. Among those many unlisted rights are; the right to sleep, the right to reasonable quite or to be free of excessive noise/speech in public places,
Why do people who claim to exercise Amendment One have to use such deafening volumes, especially with such a small crowd? What about people in the public place who do not want to hear the excessive volume in other parts of that same place (a public park for example)?
Two specific recent instances include #CODEPINK #DISRESPECT other people with #ExcessiveVolume -- and their "reasoning"?
The person for Code Pink claims that they were recently at an event where opposition had loud megaphones blasting them in the Code Pink people's ears and #Police would do nothing. Supposedly because #DC has no #NoiseLaws ---but they do. An officer came to enforce them.
Code Pink proclaims that they did not like it when other people blasted them with excessive volume -- so now they seem to assume that it is perfectly O.K. to subject others to the same #torture
My parents taught that 2 wrongs do not make one right. CodePink lives by the eye-for-an-eye (or rather ears in this case).
When we #Repeat against us and force them on other --- we ARE THE PROBLEM!!
The only way to #StopTheCycle is to Stop The Cycle!
The other incident is #MelodyCromby #Evangelist #PresidentialCandidate who, after I asked her to turn down her volume thought I was trying to stop her from saying so many things of which I disagreed. I told her that I never suggested she shut off her megaphone or to not say what she wants --- but to merely turn it down to reasonable volumes based on the size of her audience (about 5 and less than 10 at that time).
The immediate audience-size should the volume. It should not be the desires of the speaker to reach every person in the universe at the same time to dictate the volume of their free speech.
A good measure, in my opinion, is that if you have less than 30 people, you should not need a megaphone; but if you do; people halfway across the park, who are more than 75 feet away, should not be able to hear you (and if they do, it should be silent enough they have to strain to hear it).
We live in a #MeSociety for certain.
Man proclaims about how great our united States as a nation is - compared to Nigeria
The #UnConstitutional Use of #PoliceDogs
Police Dogs, when used in public places, to "search the air around people, place, or things" literally requires the #SearchWarrant required by The Constitution for The United States of America, Amendment 4. This action is a #GeneralSerach by government officers, of which the police dog is one.
The dog, is the #witness and must be called to the stand to testify, as per #Amendment6 of the US Constitution. Just as the #PoliceOfficerHander cannot testify for any human witness -- nor can that dog-handler #Lawfully testify for any other witness; including the dog.
One #US #SS officer claimed that the "impeccable track-record" of his dog was good enough to be admitted into evidence in all future cases. That would be the same as admitting the honest track-record of a police officer as evidence who was caught and/or accused of committing a crime.
The #TrackRecord speaks only of past conduct. It is not reliable for present or future conduct. We know this as fact, because there are many education, medical, police, government, parents, and others who live relatively pristine lives, and then, in a moment of weakness, the assault (sometimes #sexually, sometimes otherwise) the people with whom they were entrusted.
The Constitutional Use for police dogs would work in this manner:
Aside from that, the Constitution must be amended to allow for the use of #NonHuman government officers.
The #PeoplesRights are unlimited with respect to what we can claim as a right. Our rights are limited with responsibility regarding to what extent we may honorably exercise a desired right.
#GovernmentPowers are expressly limited to those the people specifically grant to that government. If a new tool or weapon becomes available for possible use by government, it must be amended into the US Constitution to allow government to use that new tool or weapon.
The people may not want our governments to use certain tools.
In both regards, the morning constitutional toilet stop, and a constitutional convention accomplish the same things. They both tend to remove the contaminants from their respective bodies.
Now, do you see why government officers do not want Constitutional Conventions?
#Farmers headed #BellyUp
Long-term #Tariffs tending to #bankrupt farmers as they take out more loans that they will be unable to pay when things ease up.
Sounds like a #developer has plans to acquire lots of soon-to-be bankrupt farms.
The Government works for the #people and spend our money. When did they get lawful authority to spend it all?
#Obama but he is not alone. We have #government #Congress
I think the hashtags tell the story sufficiently.
But; most of all, we have ourselves to blame for letting them.
Corporate leaders loose their 'balls'
#Walmart should put screws to government for not properly enforcing #Amendment13 which would reduce all crime in these united States of America. If they teamed with the #NRA for this perspose they could actually help this nation in a big way to help us get some Clean Honest Government.
#Government uses #corporations to disarm people.
#BorderWall project to #agressivelySeize #privateProperty and ignore #environmentalRules ??
Seem encouraged by possible promises of #pardons for any potential #wrongdoings all of which, if true is #treason if done and and is an act to #conspireTreason if story is true.
Initial promise was to make #Mexico pay for wall. Not to make people in these united States pay via #tarriffs or other #tax
If #Trump speaks and people take him seriously enough to carry out his words -- he is not joking, unless Trump himself, at the time he speaks the words tells people he jokes -- not after he gets caught having spoken the words and others begin acting as though he ordered it.
It matters not "what #supporters want" especially if those wants violate #constitution
The promised #pardons are useless, and Trump, if he grants them can be prosecuted for his acts of #treason by instigating #civilUnrest
If the reports are falsely reported by media; @realDonaldTrump can sue media for #defamation #slander etc. because it negatively impacts his ability to do his job properly.
Too bad that billionaire did not get out much and talk with people who do

If you compare an enclosed stadium that seats about 20,000 people to that of Earth: and set the stadium thermostat to minus 32 degrees Celsius, so that a frost settles on the seats. The cooler will be set to pump out the exact same BTU regardless of the ambient temperature change.
Now, add 100 people each hour to different stadium locations, each group as far apart from each other as possible.
Clearly these people are dressed for the temperature.
Thermometers placed throughout the stadium to measure temperature variations.
Taking about 200 hours or 9 days to complete.
Hot foods and drink brought in by others to simulate heat from industry and other animal life.
The first 3 or 4 days will see minor increase in temperature. As temp rises, people begin shedding layers of clothes, exposing more body heat. The digestive process also creates heat.
Each human is a 37 degree Celsius, mostly self-sustaining thermal rod.
At some point, before the end of the last day of the experiment, the temperature will either be comfortable or getting too warm.
You get the picture. Add a solar-simulated heat source for 1/3 to 1/2 of each day while the cooler pumps the exact same cooling BTU and it gets hotter for longer even faster.
For comfort; Fresh air circulation removes high levels of CO2 because the actual plant are not there.
Earth moves about in our solar-system, which creates what we call annual solar-seasons.
The Earth solar-system moves about in our galaxy, which also impacts Earth's temperature range for extended periods.
The galaxies move about within the universe and the universe within The Totality. All of this impacts Earth's average temperature, for the better or worse.
What is a #SignatureBallot ?
Simply, a Signature-Ballot is a ballot that is circulated like a petition to get signatures from registered voters who consent to the actions detailed on the Signature-Ballot.
The biggest difference is that; as opposed to a petition that is intended to get an item on a ballot; the Signature-Ballot is the actual ballot where people sign their Consenting-Signatures to acknowledge they authorize the actions detailed on the Signature-Ballot to be carried out by the person or people named therein.
There will be few posts for the next few weeks.
More and more #PreCrime #Arrests
Sounds more and more like #MinorityReport
Also sounds a lot like using the government to take #vengeance on others.
Call the #Cops -- they'll arrest anyone for any reason. Well, except when it is one of their buddies who committed the crime.
Cops are not the same as Honest Constitutionally-Knowledgeable Police/Peace Officers.
#Cops or rather C.O.P.S #CashOrientedPoliceServices
Peace Officers will take and investigate their badge and gun buddy or their mother or a known criminal with the same lawful/constitutional process favoring neither over the other.
When the government officer gets the report that someone may be about to commit a crime; the government has sufficient information to do surveillance on that person for an extremely limited time of say three or four days.
If the person in question makes no attempts to commit the crime reported; than it may be the result of a revenge or vengeance report. At this time, the person reporting could be investigated for filing a probable false report.
We must stop allowing our governments to be used for personal and corporate #Suicide and #Revenge by #Police
Can a candidate satisfy the #NRA and #GunControl groups?
For anyone who truly know the #USConstitution the answer is absolutely yes.
With proper enforcement of #Amendment13 the #ExecutiveOffice can also fully protect #Amendment2
Simply by actually #PunishingCrime via proper enforcement of Amendment 13 one reduces all crime and protects Amendment 2 far fuller than at present.
But still tracks but just does not report to advertisers?
Sounds like the #PerfectStorm for FACEBOOK to report fake trumped up numbers to advertisers to justify their ads rates.
And we are supposed to trust one of the #SocialMedia giants reported to manipulate information.
Sorry FACEBOOK, I personally would like to trust you and GOOGLE over the government, because the government has proved themselves so untrustworthy. But seems like the both of you share the same boat with government and many other not so trustworthy enterprises.
Anyone who #freezes water in a filled and closed container knows that #water #expands as it freezes
If 3/4 of #Icebergs are under water, it only reason that as that ice melts it will create space for the 1/4 of the iceberg that is above the water to fill when it also melts.
Snow and ice in the mountains is more likely to to fill valleys and low spots first as it melts, refilling aquifers before heading out to sea (so to speak).
Also, consider the growing population where on average, each adult human contains about 11 gallons of water. Human population is expected to go from the present 7.7 BILLION to about 11.3 BILLION in 2100. That is 3.6 BILLION new people in less than 100 years.
Multiply that 2.6 x 11 gallons = 28.6 BILLION gallons of water.
This does not take into account the vast billions of gallons of water that our food supply uses and stores (whether animal or plant).
If the article that claims 58 Billion tons of Ice melted equals about 8.3 pounds per gallon of water from the Arctic and I'm not even going to embarrass myself with the math; but the way the cycles are going, there is likely to be very minimal global flooding. Certainly the weather patterns will and are presently changing. Some areas are getting more pleasant and other more miserable (one way or the other).
I get curious about all the #doomsayers and what is their political agenda? One certain motive is to unjustly increase taxation.
#MrTrump could you tell me where in the #Constitution it even authorizes #Congress to tax #Wages / Payroll?
#Amendment16 is not that grant of power. Amendment 16 only authorizes the tax of #Income -- NOT Payroll or wages.
Wages, by common-use definition, are the #Compensation for labor.
#Income according to the same dictionary, with respect to #labor is the #Gain whic proceeds from labor.
The #employee almost never gains financially from the employment. The #employer almost always gains #financially from the employees labor.
The financial loss suffered by the employee (the gain #profit by the employer from that employee) is #deductible as a loss on any true #TaxableIncome
#RealDonaldTrump if you intend to give the working class the best #TaxCut you constitutionally possess the power to do without #Congress -- Simply properly #Enforce Amendment 16 -- it ain't gonna hurt Congress to cut ALL #UnnecessarySpending and there are billions of those dollars each calendar quarter. Not a #temporary but a reasonably #permanent #TaxCut
It's time for you to help deliver the power over government back to the people as you seem to have promised. I hold you accountable.
Everyone possesses the exact same list of possible rights from which to choose and exercise. Some us us choose some of the same list of rights but each of us set a varying degree upon which we either exercise or value those rights.
When I read an article that states, "conservative religious leaders... hoped [Trump would] oppose abortion an rein in the LGBTQ-rights movement" those #Conservative #Religious leaders also want government to rein in the #ReligiousRights and the #ConservativeRights as well.
No one that I know about is forcing any conservative religious people to exercise a right to be one of the LGBTQ people. Nor do I see people who truly are #ProChoice forcing people to either have an #Abortion or to go #FullTerm and have a #LiveBirth -- Yet I do see many "conservative religious" people trying to force their personal choice if rights upon all others as their #ReligiousMandate
When any of us wants the government to trample the chosen rights of another, simply because we disagree with those rights, we tell the government that it is perfectly O.K. with us for the government to trample our rights as well -- BECAUSE THE LIST IS EXACTLY THE SAME.
If the government is to take money out of the abortion end of things, the government MUST ALSO take the money out of the live-birth end of things as well -- and let both sides fund their own children or abortions.
Another interesting element of that article claims that #HHS #HealthAndHumanServices allows waivers to #StateContractedFoster agencies in #SC to deny services to #SameSex and #NonChristian families.
So only "Christian" are going to be allowed to propagandize children in the government-run foster-care industry?
"Christians" must be so desperate to grow their numbers that they have to kidnap children because people have seen the fraud and deep-deception in the lives of so many #FakeChristians that so few people want to participate in the religion willingly.
My parents, both claiming to live the Christian lifestyle taught me not to do as they say, but to do as they do. They also taught me that if I were to live the true Christian lifestyle, people would come to me and ask me how to get what I have. And for a few years, I live that lifestyle, only to learn that my parents did not. They, instead of relying on the god they worship instead relied on the government and others to supply needs for the family.
I left all religion behind, realizing that the "gods" never do for humans those things that humans can do for themselves. If we want any form of "heaven", it is our hands that will make it happen. We already see the hells that humans can cause -- all we have to do is focus on the good we can do -- then do it.
Does that mean the #People of Norfolk or the #Politicians of #Norfolk?
I'll bet it's the politicians and not the people who want the statutes removed. It certainly appears that way with respect to #Charlottesville -- according to the same article where the City Council wanted the statue removed, but citizens sued the the city (politicians, I hope).
According to the article, the City Council of Charlottsville blames the statue of General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson for the deaths and injuries at the Charlottesville protest with the #UnitedTheRight rally.
It would be nice if the #VirginiaStateSupremeCourt had several still-living brain cells among them. But I seriously doubt it after I read parts of the #VirginiaStateSupremeCourtRules that prohibit the Constitution from being used in front of Jurors to prove that a law violates the US and/or the VA #Constitutions -- as the rule states; "discussing the law might confuse the jurors". That right; it might confuse the jurors to the point of realizing that there are a lot of laws that violate the constitutions, the jurors might actually call a #SuperGrandJury to investigate the #Treasonous and #Tyrannical acts by the various #LegislativeBranches with Virginia.
From a news article: "suit argues [insert names of schools here] violate the rights of African American students by forcing them 'to champion a legacy of segregation and oppression in order to participate in school activities'".
Notice that the claim is that the school's respective names are violating the student's rights. It does not claim that any teacher, coach, administrator, etc. forces the students "to champion" segregation or oppression -- but it is the schools names.
The suit continues with; "[The school names] violate the First Amendment's guarantee of being free from 'compelled speech' and the 14th Amendment guarantee of equal protection under the law".
Once again, the suit -- at least according to the article, does not name any person who forces the students to say anything improper, racial, congregationalist, or oppressive.
As for Equal Protection under the Law? What about those students who happen to like the name of the school -- or at the very least find no offense in the names themselves? What about their equal protection?
If the students and/or parents do not like the name of the school --- DON"T SEND YOUR KIDS THERE!!!! because you violate the rights of those who could care less about the name.
By the way, for #HashTagging purposes: the School names are #LeeDavisHighSchool and #StonewallJacksonMiddleSchool
#KaitlinBanner needs to study The Supreme Law of the Land, which includes The Constitution for the United States of America. So too des the #NAACP for such a #FrivolousLawSuit
#TomHarris you should grow some courage and knowledge and defend your schools and your community.
Do an of the #unitedStatesAmericans know what it is supposed to really look like?
Being out in #LafayetteSquare in #WashingtonDC since July 9th 2018; I've seen plenty pf protesters chant "This is what democracy looks like".
Exercising #FreedomOfSpeech is #NotDemocracy though it is enjoyed under a properly run #Democracy that controls it #RepublicGovernments
#Registering to #Vote also in NOT the Democracy designed for these united States of America.
The proper exercise and enforcement of our Democracy in these united States demands that our votes get properly counted.
We "enjoy", if you will; the #IllusionOfDemocracy and the #IllusionOfRepresentativeRepublics -- as we enjoy the #IllusionOurVotesMatter
#Illusions ? Yes!
When the Democracy demands that every registered voter's vote be accounted for as #Consent or #NotConsenting with #ConsentOfTheMajority of the total body of registered voters being necessary -- when the majority refuse to even go to the polls to consent to anything or anyone on the ballot our system has become so #corrupted that we allow our politicians to create a fluid, continuously moving #Post (as in #FirstPastThePost ).
That post was well established and fixed at 50% of the total number of registered voters. The first person who gets just one more vote past that POST wins the race because no other candidate can even get to that post of 50% after that.
One would think that our politicians would become satisfied to have to get 50% of the majority of the total number of registered voters who go to vote fore the #LesserOfEvils -- but even then, they found it difficult and many time impossible to even get past that post.
What did they do? They effectively removed the post so that whatever candidate gets just one more vote than the other in the race -- that unqualified candidate gets sworn in. And if we talk about #Referendum or #Initiatives ballots; many city councils or other political bodies at county, state, federal levels simply discard the voters' decision and make it what thtey want anyhow.
Well #KremlinAnnex #SOSAmerica2019 #MomsDemand and #realDonaldTrump the solutions for #DrainingTheSwamp are here. @RealDonaldTrump who can constitutionally drain THAT swamp the quickest with a #ConstitutionalExecutiveOrder could do so in less than 3 months -- if done correctly; or the people can do it over the next several election cycles ( a couple or more years).
Is it more -- or less racist to have the statute of #Confederate items in a public place or is it #Racist to put up a huge sign to Mark The Arrival of #Slaves?
If the Confederate statutes are supposed to be racist against people of #DarkerColor -- why then wouldn't the big sign in Virginia that marks the arrival of slaves into #Virginia be considered as racist against people of #LighterColor ?
Personally, I find neither of the reminders of our nation's past -- as #Reminders -- to be offensive. My #Offense grows when we refuse to learn from our nation's past and we insist on continuing RACISM whether it be #WhiteAgainstBlack or #BlackAgaintWhite or any other shades or cultures or nationalities.
If we take down our reminders of our past...
If we forget our past mistakes...
...We doom ourselves to REPEATING the evils of our ancestors no matter the color, creed, religion, race, etc....
