Stone City, Iowa
I am a Veteran.
As a Soldier, I took an Oath.
"I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."
In the National Guard, they also take a similar oath.
"I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the State of (STATE NAME) against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the Governor of (STATE NAME) and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to law and regulations. So help me God."
An Oath, I haven't forgotten, like some veterans.

Things You Might Want to Think About
In our country, the state legislatures use to elect Senators, so the Senators were beholden to the state's interests.
This meant, the senators from Missouri watched out for Missouri's interests, and the senators from every other state watched out for their state's interest. Plus, this meant the rural voter counted as much, if not more, as the city voter.
Latin America might want to model the countries on an older version of these United States.
A guy by the name of 'Killer Mike' did an interview. In the interview he advocated for African-Americans to own firearms, especially AR-15s.
Several days later, he allied himself with a group of people that are trying to take firearms away from blacks and everyone else.
Needless to say, ...
Killer Mike, you are mistaken. You can't support the march and blacks owning guns. It's impossible to do both because these marchers want to ban all firearms.
Bet Y'a, ...
I know where he lives
All I have to say, ...
Only if these United States (along with Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, and Brunei) allows them, can China control the South China Sea.
The Electrical Grid
Whether the attack is physical, cyber, military, or some other event, our countries' electrical grid is vulnerable.
This attack could kill millions of people because you and your family rely on electricity, transported across the electrical grid, for almost everything.
In other words, ... You have been warned, again.
Does a news article need to be completely false, partially wrong, or just a little incorrect to be considered 'fake' news?
'Cause Texans don't need a 'gun license.'
The Germans have been teaching their children about the Holocaust for generations, the official intolerance of the Nazis, and the dangers of anti-Semitism.
All those so-called immigrants are undermining those efforts and other efforts, too
Let me see, take part in a demonstration against heavily armed people with a group of people that want the heavily armed people to attack them.
Mix in a few terrorists, with the crowd.
Sounds like a great idea to me, ... Not.
In a society protected by the law, everyone is, relatively, treated the same.
This means, Ms. Hillary Rodham-Clinton would be facing prison time, along with Mr. James Comey.
Believe it or not, there are people that dress up as military veterans. These so-called posers try to convince others that they were in combat, deployed with elite units, or ...
It seems some other posers are trying to take away your rights.
Not everybody that stores shoes, has back-up computers, multiple phones, and ... a lot of other stuff are preppers.
Sometimes, they are ...
A Qualified Person
We ran into this when I was a school teacher..
We weren't getting any qualified black people applying for teaching positions because they didn't want to put up with black people's bullsh*t, much less their children.
I guess that means, ... 'Darker is better' is racist, too.
Dang, ... She really needs to quit skipping school because Ms. Emma Gonazlez might have learned a little Cuban history, especially the last 50 or 60 years worth.
Damn if you do. Damn if you don't.
Either way, ... They should have picked 'Freedom.'
"How did we get here, and what factors are working against us. I have a few things: ..."
"It’s just a cosmetic fix that won’t work."
"I really think it’s important to underscore that without bullets a gun is just a hunk of useless metal, and a would-be killer lacks the means to actually kill or maim,"
"For reasons based purely in preparedness we need notes and coins that work without electricity."
"Blue voters moving to red counties and states and turning them blue actually has a name: The Locust Effect."
"Obviously….The best thing to do to combat chronic abusers and disregarders of the law(like the law against Murder) is to……..pass another Law!…..Genius!!!…… but before we pass this law we’re going to denigrate the memory and curse ourselves by exploiting the death of 16 of our fellow students for a few Facebook likes and some media attention….and look how well civil rights abuses as it concerns firearms helped to protect me and my friends in Paris!!!!! This almost sounds like the plan of like a kid maybe like a high school student….!. Oh wait that’s right…. The Whitney Houston song about letting the children lead the way wasn’t actually had operating paradigm for life…..And when the truth don’t line up with your bullshit narrative just hold your breath and stamp your feet and refused to except it…. then take multiple days off of school playing hooky at the expense of 16 of your classmates blood….!…. it might be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic and disgusting……As the survivor of a mass shooting I can tell you from first-hand experience that all of you protesting and taking days off from school insult the memory of those who were killed and abuse and insult me and every other lover of liberty by your every action…..Long Live Rock’n’Roll….. and may everyone of these disgusting vile abusers of the dead live as long as possible so they can have the maximum amount of time to endure their shame….and be Cursed…."
"Or have the Clintons won lifetime immunity from prosecution for any criminal offense simply because Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election?"
"What would happen should immoderate weatehr strike major grain-growing regions of the world?"
"We’re so far from having any intelligent public debate about these issues that the events now spooling out will completely blindside the nation."
