Are Our Rights Being Infringed Upon?


You decide.

It's simple enough, people!
Have you read the Second Amendment?
Well, here you go:

Amendment ll
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

football...



Due to the screaming downstairs, I think the Baltimore Ravens just won! Yeah!!! (although football isn't really my thing...at all;)

Kelp



  Mom and I get on our little kicks. This time, we are in to the Bulk Herb Store! A fascinating thing, I assure you. Being healthy and making your own tinctures, poultices, and other strange concoctions are going to be our new hobbies. So, if you don't care for the smell of earthy things, I do not recommend that you come to our home!
  We haven't gotten too many herbs yet...start small and get information...don't just dive in! This is something that takes real effort on my part. When I get an idea, I tend to delve into it with full force. Then, I don't always finish what I start. This is definitely a character flaw that needs fixed!
  So, back to healthy living, have you heard of kelp? Well, it is a type of marine algae (a.k.a. seaweed), it contains folic acid, vitamin K, magnesium, calcium, iron and other trace minerals and it is rich in iodine.
We use a bit less than one teaspoon of kelp powder in a smoothie.You may want to start with an even smaller amount.  
Everyones body is different. You might want to use 1/2 of a teaspoon or even 1/4 of a teaspoon.
It's green and tastes nasty, but, I hear that you acquire a taste for it! I pray it's true, because it tastes like saltwater.  To health!

Should we have the right to bear arms?


Read this:
2nd Amendment no longer needed?

One of the most interesting quotes that I have read on gun control: “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.” ~Adolf Hitler

Thomas Jefferson: “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.” (emphasis mine).



Would you care to argue with me on the fact that we need our guns?  I didn't think so.
