baker act and the 4th

the 4th amendment to the US Constitution

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Today we watch Mr. Trump in yet another meeting  with lawmakers  at capital . they were discussing ways tostop the next school shooter . there was a a bunch of ideas discussed  a lot of good ideas , and then while they were discussing  the Baker act , which is  await to put  someone that is  not psychologically stable  into the hospital for 72 hours  with or without their permission , president Trump said  something that is bothering a lot of us . he said that  if a person is Baker acted  they should st take their weapons and worry about justice later .

Now  since we know that  a person is going to do a school shooting is not in their right mind, once the person is Baker acted , law enforcement would go before a judge in an ex parte and provide compelling  evidence  either  by  the shooter’s writings  showing  that he will commit this act , or a doctors note staining the person is a danger to themselves or others . At that point the judge would then sign a warrant for the temporary seizure of his firearms until a full hearing can be held as to if that person can get the weapons back. As judges are on call for search warrents this should not be a big deal to be done with in the 72 hour period.

This is about the only way that this could be done legaly in my opinion. If this procedure is not in the bill it should be thrown out.

My latest worries


Hi all, I am starting to get really worried. I am looking at all the gun-control stuff and figuring out that we are like a frog in water, and that water is getting hot. We see every day how the federal government is making laws to make our lives better? First they took away handguns to anyone under 21, now they are starting to talk about taking away, either all guns, or certain guns for anyone under the age of 21. Guns like the AR 15 and so on. You know all the scary looking guns that are no more than what you used to shoot at cans.

When are we as a people going to understand  the reasons that our forefathers made the amendments and the Constitution .in the case of the second amendment it was to protect us  and our state from all enemies  both foreign and domestic.  I realize we just went through a tragedy  and emotions are high.  But we must remember not to act in haste  and make waste.  If we whittled down all the little things to nothing  then there is nothing left.  Background checks, licensing, okay.  But to limit us in the weapon choices that we have would be to take away our ability  to defend ourselves and our state .

I am asking everybody to keep an eye out our local legislatures  or state legislatures and our federal Congress  and president to make sure that  in their zeal  to protect children  (great reason to take away our  rights, the children ?) They do not exceed  the Constitution.

Thank you and God bless



on the Broward Valentines shooting

I know this is a futile request, but I am asking. Please don’t start jumping to conclusions and blaming this that and the other thing has caused the broward shooting until we know the facts.
I have already started to see posts blaming the NRA , our gun control laws and all that. There is no need yet to join in like a lemming.
I pray for all those that lost their lives in this shooting, and pray more for all those students that witnessed this horrible event. May the good Lord take the dead unto his arms and may the Lord help those wounded to heal, in body and mind.
In Jesus name, I pray.



Today at the UN the representative for the DPRK said Mr Trumps words at the UN make it necessary for the DPRK to Bomb the US. the wreckless words of Mr Trump have made the irreversible mistake of making our rockets visit to the entire US mainland inevitable

"None other than Trump himself is on a suicide mission."Moments ago at the United Nations, North Korea's Foreign Minister assailed President Donald J. Trump, warning that the American leader had made an "irreversible mistake."

Mr Trumps speeches

Hi All;

I think I know one small problem that the left has so much trouble with. I think like myself and many others Mr Trump either has a case of add or adhd. This would account for the way he talks in public. He knows what he wants to say, but fails to get his point out the way the left can understand because his mind is racing and onto many other subject while he is talking. Mr Trump is not a good public speaker, but, some like me can understand what he meant cause our minds are racing too.

For example his last speech at the presser.  He said there were many fine people there protesting. his mind raced and he forgot to say that They were not affiliated with either group. IMO: ADD would explain his bad public speaking. He has so much to say that while he is saying it his mind has gone on to the next part. speech to him is too slow for the mind to concentrate on. I admit I am not a great writer of my thoughts, due to the same problem. I mean typing is way too slow even at about 100 wpm. I loose track of what I want to say too fast. This appears to happen to the President too.

So next time you want to admonish the President for something he said. Look at what he was trying to say, not what he may have skipped in what he was saying. Look for the context. Yes the struggle is real for us that have this minor problem. But that’s ok, we will eventually get our message across. Maybe not as well as some but, we will get it across.

BTW: it took me 20 minutes to write this out and I know it is not well said.


Charges of Racketeering

after watching how the congress has been acting since the 20th of January, I am wondering if there should be charges of racketeering brought against the Democratic party. It would appear that the leaders of that party have conspired to wreck the country. How is it that NONE of the members of that party have voted for anything? Even with a bill that was designed to be favorable to the Dem party, the best they could all do is vote PRESENT?

This is the first time that I can remember that NO Dems have even voted across party lines. in almost every vote before this year, there have been at least 2 or 3 dems that have voted the other way. Why none now? What does the leadership have on them? What have they threatened them with? Seven months and not a yeah vote from any of them? We all know there are moderate and even conservative dems in the party.  So how could the party get them all to vote the same? Not even a good word for the President being allowed to be said? This is not right. out of almost 150 members not one dissent? Not one word to prop up the country? Just this whole resist thing?

I pray that voters remember what the Dems have attempted to do to this country. Trying to tear it down all due to the fact that their candidate lost the Presidency. They are acting like children.

who’s the boss, a joke

The organs of a body were fighting over who should be boss.

The brain said, “I should be boss, since I control what the person thinks.”

The hands said, “I should be boss because I do almost everything for the person.”

The legs declared, “I shuld be boss since I carry the body and all the weight is on me.”

So they went on, each stating their qualities and uses.

Then the Asshole spoke up, “I think I should be boss, because..”

He had not finished when everyone else started laughing at him. “You, an asshole, be the boss? You gotta be kidding!”T

he asshole was very unhappy, and he closed himself up.The body soon suffered a terrible constipation, and the organs could not take it anymore.

“Ok, ok, you’re the boss!” they gavein.

So the asshole became the boss of the body.

The moral of the story: You don’t need brains to be a boss, you just need to be an asshole.

On the Castile shooting

After watching the police car video, I can now make an opinion on this shooting. While the left and BLM will obviously try to do their best to put their slant on it, As an outside observer here is my thoughts.

I watched as Castile say he had a gun. Then 2 seconds later I watched as the cop says get your hands from your pockets multiple times.

In this case It is my opinion that Castile was too stupid to live.  Anyone trained on gun carry knows once you tell the officer that you are armed you are to keep your hands on the wheel and in plain sight. Then follow the officers instructions. Typically this will be to get you out of the vehicle safely, and disarm you.

Mr Castile did none of that. Before the officer could get him out, he kept reaching for his pocket, This to an officer, is reaching for your weapon. In this case the officer responding within his training and shot the suspect.

This should be a lesson in what NOT to do at a traffic stop. To all those that are calling for the officers head. Stop. Look at the whole of the video. then decide if that officer had the right to the actions he had to take. IMO he did. And I would expect any officer to respond in the same way.


( a note: I write these posts to my blog so as to make it easy for me to respond to articles that are spewing the same falsehoods over and over again)



Twitter Becoming a Safe Space?


I was reading the latest memo from twitter about making itself better. I noticed a few lines in it that seem odd, like this one –

“We’re also working on ‘safe search’ which removes Tweets that contain potentially sensitive content and Tweets from blocked and muted accounts from search results.”

Potentially sensitive content? wtf is that? A tweet about the president enabling a travel ban, because it hurts someone’s feeling? Or me disagreeing with something someone said?

Here’s another –

“Our team has also been working on identifying and collapsing potentially abusive and low-quality replies”

What is low quality? Does this mean if I misspell a word or forget to capitalize it will be put in the bucket of undesirables?

While I applaud the actions of getting rid of multiple accounts used for abuse, These other steps seem to be odd, And leave me to wonder that if I decide to make a tweet opposing the left will it be put in the undesirable bin? Thus making sure that I am not seen by the people I am trying to reach? These actions appear to fly in the face of the opening statement –

“Making Twitter a safer place is our primary focus. We stand for freedom of expression and people being able to see all sides of any topic. ”

how can you stand for freedom of expression and still censor that freedom by following the actions you are taking? Are not the people that read the tweets not capable of glossing over the tweets that they find offensive?

To the @twittersafety folks. IF you are going to make these changes, please at least make it an opt in not an opt out option. And consider that some of us are at least smart enough to filter what we read and continue the ability for the freedom of speech that you claim to want.
