Let's talk - should Seniors carry weapons?

There's a public concern that senior citizens carrying a (gun) weapon maybe more dangerous than the potential violent crime it was intended to circumvent. This is predicated on that a senior may have cognitive impairment or dementia, may have diminished eyesight and hearing, or may just shoot themselves. More than 8,200 older adults committed suicide using a gun in 2016, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

But for the senior carrying the weapon, he/she feels independence and control in a world where they might otherwise feel powerless; most criminals can interpret physical weakness as an opportunity to advance their status quo. Few unarmed senior citizens can fight off a single younger, stronger, and faster attacker, even if the attacker is unarmed.

I personally don’t think criminals target senior citizens, but I do think senior citizens are better targets for obvious reasons. I have to agree that carrying a (gun) weapon today is more to my advantage than it perhaps would've been when I was 40 . Finally, if you are able to cognitively understand a threat and have the ability to use a gun to defend yourself, you are probably good enough to carry a weapon.
Let’s talk democracy functioning in a constitutional republic….

The ubiquitous meaning of democracy and republic depicts how two completely opposite entities, which are not absolute, can’t exist or are incomplete without each other. These forces are opposite and yet complementary, and share an interdependent relationship, for without democracy, there would be no republic, and without a republic, no democracy.

Usually, democracy is associated with functional aspect of an object and has more energetic qualities, e.g., moving, ascending, expanding, bright, progressing, active and hyper-functioning states. The republic, on the other hand, is associated with the physical form of an object and has less energetic qualities such as stillness, descending, contracting, cold, dark, degenerating, latent and under-functioning states. It’s two halves that together complete wholeness. And, to maintain the overall balance of the whole, as one aspect increases the other must decrease.

Gradually, this logic was developed into a system of thought that was applied to all areas of our government – Judicial, Legislative and Executive Branch. Democracy functioning in a constitutional republic is a symbol of American philosophy that ensures the government is effective and citizens’ rights are protected.
Let's Talk "Training Trump"

In my opinion, the root to all of Trump’s problems is due to lack of proper training for the office of President. So, in order to assure that we (as a country) continue to get the highest quality of work possible from Trump, we to provide him a program of Special High Intensity Training (S.H.I.T.). And because we don’t believe he has received his fair share of S.H.I.T. on the job, he will be placed on the top of the S.H.I.T. list for special attention. He needs more S.H.I.T. than any other President in our history.

If you consider yourself to be trained enough already, you may be interested in helping us to train him. We can add your name to our Basic Understanding Lecture List, Special High Intensity Training (B.U.L.L.S.H.I.T.)

All questions will be directed to our Head of Training (H.O.T.S.H.I.T.)
Is Trump Correct?

Is Trump correct in reducing US global involvement? Since 9/11 we have spend over $5.9 trillion on wars abroad that have resulted in the deaths of 500,000 people (only 6,900 US military personnel, 7,800 US contractors), according to a published report by Brown University. The report, reveals that some 370,000 people have died directly from violence related to US wars, which 250,000 were civilians. In addition, another 10.1 million people have been displaced. Keep in mind that the $5.9 trillion spent on war-related expenses were paid exclusively by borrowing which increase our national debt. Maybe for once, Trump is correct!
Abolish the Electoral College

Electoral College as a process in electing the President of the United States is an ideology that has proven to be flawed because it is structured to favor the small states. It encourages candidates to seek voters interest in a few states and ignoring the greater country's population. It's not me who says it, but research the data yourself! The solution of trusting the state more than its people is very irresponsible. People do not want to be govern this way - when forced to accept a system imposed on them by an authoritarian state. Under this system, we are not equal as the Socialists like to say. Let us be concerned with promoting democracy rather than the inequalities of a republic state when electing our Presidents.
Should Mexico become 51st US state?

Yes, for three major motives. First, Mexico as a coastal state would expand our Pacific and Atlantic seaports and global trade, thereby, as a new nation benefiting from the combine GDP (USA 19.39 trillion and Mexico 1.15 trillion) and its potential growth. Furthermore, our future retirees would gain some nice vacations spots like Cancun, Cozumel, and Puerto Vallarta; places for Generation X, Y and Z to retire too (which would alleviate Florida’s retirees overcrowding problem). Tequila will be less expensive! Additionally, new businesses that cater to tourism and travel infrastructure development would spread greater into Mexico state from the millions plus of international visitors vacationing in Baja-California annually, thus, providing better living conditions for its indigenous people. Mexico as a US state would immediately become a popular tourism destinations - similar to Hawaii, our 50th state, when it accomplished statehood.

Second, current US-Mexico border is 1,933 miles or 3,100km long, whereas Mexico-Guatemala border is only 541 miles or 871km long. A report from HLS cited that over $30B is spent on the US-Mexico border operations. By creating a shorter border, having a US-Guatemala border, you would reduce the cost of border operations by three-fourth ($22 – less time, energy and personnel to protect and/or build a wall. Also, Mexico as a US state would add 1,964,375 square-miles of landmass (about three times larger than Texas) where solar energy and other renewable resources could be fully research and developed in Mexico state desert. The development of this industry and the build out of its infrastructure (similar to Australia solar industry) would provide more schools with light and air conditioning, more hospitals with modern equipment to preform emergency procedures and save lives, and more stores with food to purchase to live a healthy life style. And, constructing prosper living environment may decrease the migration problem.

Third, access to 129M people - human asset/capital. Human capital is really the most important resource in any country because people come with a diverse set of skills, knowledge and experience. Regardless of a country or an organization automation plan, human resources are still needed because without it, all other resources would be difficult to operate and/or manage. To ensure human resource are effective contributors to overall GDP growth, the new nation (USAMX) we must invest in their education, training and provide enhanced benefits. In most cases, people in the workforce who have a higher education will often have larger salaries, which means they will be able to spend more. Allowing Mexico to be the 51st state, we can begin to foster a culture where 129M people will feel less desire to migrate because their lives inside and outside of employment are respected and valued. This can be achieved by simple granting Mexico US statehood.

Finally, sure there are those who believe it would be a bureaucratic nightmare; that there is constant drug wars by the cartels and that they control everything; that it would not change or reduce the immigration problem; and, it would make US per capita shrink and make us look poorer. All of these problems are “made by people” and it will take people to correct them. Bottom line is that the task will be problematic and intolerable but never impossible! The benefits far outweigh the risk of not undertaking the task.
