Our gracious Federal Government has deigned to allow its subjects the ability to obtain plumbing fixtures and appliances for common use. However, because our benevolent leaders are just and good, they require through force of gun, that such privileges of modern technology be limited to only those that meet strict water and energy consumption requirements. https://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?SID=48f64e166fe3561666f871e521996e13&mc=true=se10.3.430_132=div8

My first gun proposal - It shall be the responsibility of the authority declaring a gun free zone to secure the site from unauthorized people carrying guns. Any breach of this security shall: subject the authority to a minimum fine and any liability arising from their failure to protect the individuals in their care; rescind the gun free zone until further measures are taken to ensure the security of the individuals in their care.

RobBlair comments on Dec 18, 2019:
I'd be in favor of requiring drug prices to match across international lines. If you sell the drug for $2,000 in the US then you must sell it for $2,000 to the other nations or have your drug penalized with a tariff equal to the difference. What currently happens is the drug companies cover their R and D for the drugs in the US market and then look to the international markets to just cover production costs. This even creates a gray market where people in the US can purchase their drugs from Canada for a cheaper cost. I also like the fixed cap on costs for medical insurance. Imagine that conversation "Aunt Edna has reached her medical cost cap for this year. Come back next year and we'll finish the operation."

RobBlair comments on Dec 17, 2019:
"Men who sleep around are viewed as heroes or lovable rogues," - feckless, unfounded, and immature comes to mind. Sure we men have a strong desire to obtain sexual conquests, but we do well to not define ourselves by our short term desires alone. I believe the noble and most satisfying goal for most men is best imagined as a grandfather at a table set for a feast, next to his wife and surrounded by his children and grandchildren. A life of short term sexual encounters delays the time to establishing a marriage, damages the ability to commit, and communicates the desire to gain short term satisfaction over long term gains.

Candidates and large publishing companies (Facebook, Google, TV, etc...) should be held responsible for the accuracy and timeliness of this information. Fix Our Broken Elections - Gerrymandering is a non-issue, but it should be recognized as part of a political process. I don't care how often you call a committee independent or transparent, it won't be. The idea that people don't participate in the primaries has an obvious solution. I'm not in favor of automatic registration or automatic vote from home. I like the civic nature of the community coming together to vote. In any case, these issues can be decided on a state by state basis. An 18 year term limit is hard to disagree with. Government should not be involved in election funding. You like a candidate, you fund that candidate. Enforce the Rules - Super PACS that finance or oppose a candidate should somehow be disclosed on that candidate's financial sheet. Ex. If an anti-2nd amendment lobby is targeting a candidate that candidate and his opponents should have that shown on their opensecrets sheet. If documented as such, I don't care if they coordinate. Dinesh D'Souza was sentenced to 5 years in jail for campaign finance violation. I want the federal government's role in this restricted, not exacerbated. One thing to keep in mind, 100% of the News network time during elections is effectively someone's campaign being financed. Maybe the solution is to ditch the whole campaign finance garbage and go back to holding our candidates responsible for the promises they make when being elected?

RobBlair comments on Dec 17, 2019:
"Since 1947, the Muslims of India have been distinguished by their widespread refusal to embrace radicalization." Fact Check - False https://www.brookings.edu/articles/terrorism-in-india-and-the-global-jihad/ "Christians and Hindus in India have always had cordial relationships. I believe the relationships are still very cordial. And it is not Hindus who persecute Christians. Let me be very categorical about that: it's a particular group of people who subscribe to an ideology called Hindutva. They are the ones, you know, persecuting not just Christians, but basically all minorities that are different from them. So that would be the Muslims. That would be the Christians. That would also be the Sikhs, in sporadic incidents. And that would also be the Communists, who actually subscribe to no religion at all. And that would also be the Dalits, you know, who are the Untouchables. So the Hindutva group, the people subscribing to this particular ideology, are really the ones I would say who are unleashing this wave of violence in India." "Hindutva is a political ideology. It's a fascist ideology. It believes in one nation, one culture, one people. And it borrows directly from Hitler and elevates Hitler as one of their heroes. They believe in the final solution. These were the forces that killed Mahatma Gandhi..." https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2019/may-web-only/india-modi-elections-bjp-christians-persecution.html I agree that Modi and the Indian population is heading in a dark direction, but I also would like to see less whitewashing of the radical elements of Islam. There is an obvious subset to Islam that moves people towards evil.

RobBlair comments on Dec 16, 2019:
https://ustr.gov/trade-agreements/free-trade-agreements/united-states-mexico-canada-agreement/agreement-between Article 16.2 - Nothing in this Agreement prevents a Party from applying measures to regulate the entry of natural persons of another Party into, or their temporary stay in, its territory, including those measures necessary to protect the integrity of, and to ensure the orderly movement of natural persons across, its borders, provided that those measures are not applied in a manner as to nullify or impair the benefits accruing to any Party under this Chapter. ... 4. No Party shall: (a) as a condition for temporary entry under paragraph 1, require prior approval procedures, petitions, labor certification tests or other procedures of similar effect; or (b) impose or maintain a numerical restriction relating to temporary entry under paragraph 1. 5. Notwithstanding paragraph 4, a Party may require a business person seeking temporary entry under this Section to obtain a visa or its equivalent prior to entry. Before imposing a visa requirement, the Party shall consult, on request, with a Party whose business persons would be affected with a view to avoiding the imposition of the requirement. With respect to an existing visa requirement, a Party shall consult, on request, with a Party whose business persons are subject to the requirement with a view to its removal. Hmmm... So the Fed maintains power of immigration except with regard to the temporary stay of "business" people. (There is a list of what is considered business people). So unaccountable government entity can - (e) adopt and update the Rules of Procedure and Code of Conduct applicable to dispute settlement proceedings; and modify any Uniform Regulations agreed jointly by the Parties under Article 5.16 (Uniform Regulations), subject to completion of applicable legal procedures by each Party My head hurts. Would love to burn this thing. I think its right to be suspicious but I also suspect that your charges overstate the unaccountability concern. The threat to dispose of this agreement by congress will always be available except that our congress is comprised mostly of wood.

He replied: "100 percent," according to emails McHugh gave to the SPLC and then CNN." - "Miller responded with a link to an article on an extremist website that promotes the racist "great replacement" theory" Gee I guess we should take CNN and the SPLC's word that Miller a super bad guy.

Capitalism - an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market - Merriam Webster definition Private ownership of property (capital), and the ability to voluntarily exchange property at a value freely determined by the parties represented. The value is often moderated by competition by other parties in a free market. - My definition Destruction and Theft of Native Land - Theft is not capitalism. The owners of the land were not compensated. Not Capitalism. Slavery - Effectively, the theft of a person's labor. Not capitalism. Colonization of Africa - See above two for aspects of colonization that are not capitalism. Investing in railroads, infrastructure, mining of resources, etc... can be aspects of capitalism, but I don't see an obvious detraction to those aspects. Maybe something regarding environmental concerns, but that is a bit far. Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire - 146 workers died in a fire. These workers didn't volunteer their lives in a free exchange and I would reject the argument that the company wanted their lives. This was an accident. Now the second time...

Eight Marxist Claims That May Surprise You
RobBlair comments on Dec 12, 2019:
1. He recognized the success of capitalism (ie he opened his eyes) 2. Capitalism through trade (which he calls exploitation for some reason) will tie and change every country 3. Capitalism brings constant change that will, over time, dispose of distractions and reveal our true needs. (this is actually interesting so I'm probably not interpreting it right) 4. The middle class will disappear into the poor class (this is completely wrong) 5. He opposed vast collections of private property but suggests that there is some low threshold of ownership that may be appropriate (this of course is bupkis. There is no threshold that exists against enough demonstrated need. With time, the rich are lost and you, the peon, get labeled rich) 6. He called voluntary labor involuntary 7. He suggested that labor will be slaved to each laborer's skill set. The button presser will only be a button presser (dead wrong) 8. The Marxist movement requires revolution. This namby pamby bloodless negotiation stuff is rubbish (revisionist). - see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revisionism_(Marxism)

President Andrew Johnson (an anti-slave Democrat who replaced Lincoln - the first Republican president after his assassination) was mostly charged with impeachment by congress for firing his Secretary of War, which Congress had specifically passed legislation to prevent from happening. He narrowly avoided removal from office.

RobBlair comments on Dec 9, 2019:
From laws on TV censorship, anti-sodomy, anti-pornography, our crappy blue light laws, etc... I remember a time when I was in favor of these things. I do find myself questioning what to expose my 6 year old to at times. But, as a general rule, I think exposure followed by discussion is better than shielding. Of course I want to shield him from porn. That is quite the addictive drug and if I can keep it from him until 12 or so, I will consider it a win. All in all, I'm satisfied that government is no longer the blunt object used on these cultural items. These things should be left to discussions over the heats and minds. I will, of course, disagree regarding abortion. One of government's functions is to protect life. Struggling through a porn addiction is way better than being snuffed out before even being given a name and a birthday. As a minimum, under our Federal system, it should not be a garbage judicial law from on high that dictates every states stance on this. It is appropriate to be fearful over the power we place in our idiots in DC. But, properly confined, those idiots serve a necessary purpose. The first purpose should be life.

Keep talking about it. What does the Quran actually say? Why is war so prevalent around predominantly Islamic nations? Where do we look to see Islam peacefully integrating with Western culture? US identity is around the right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. How does that work when your faith teaches that some people should be executed, women require twice the witnesses to counter a man's false accusation, etc...

It has been suggested that Roberts has been swayed by public demonstrations in the past. The advantage for colleges with reputations like Georgetown is they can choose to grab the higher IQ students. What they do with the higher IQ students ... One of my favorite lines from a recent Ben Shapiro speech was criticizing Boston University's Department of Economics who had graduated Congresswoman AOC.

'Your right is someone's responsibility.
RobBlair comments on Dec 8, 2019:
As adults with free will, responsibility and authority should not be separated. In short, the "right" to health, is really a duty that societies may choose to shoulder. That duty would then require proper funding and support to survive. This kind of right, where a good or service is promised, is usually differentiated from other rights, that typically reduce the power of government or others to impose their will on another individual. The first is often referred to as "positive" rights vs the other as "negative" rights. Here's a humorous PJ O'Rourke article on negative/positive rights. https://americanconsequences.com/negative-rights-vs-positive-rights/ In all cases regarding positive rights/duties the following concerns should be addressed: 1. Why should the government be involved? Government is notoriously expensive, inefficient and authoritarian (they have guns and jails) compared to the free market. But, a free market for emergency services requires forethought on behalf of the hapless customer. Also, it is not acceptable, as a society, to allow people to die when a routine service can be provided to repair the person. 2. How is corruption mitigated? Accountability is required. Audits should be performed and people who are not doing a good job should be fired. 3. How do you keep politicians from using this program to buy more votes? If you love lobbyists then ignore this. 4. What penalty should be applied to those who abuse this system? 5. How do you allow for future advances in technology to navigate around this embedded government system?

So the democrats are all upset that there aren't any people of color running for president now that Kamala has dropped out (of course we're excluding Gabbard, Yang, Castro, Booker and 1/1024th of Warren). I thought, "Hey guys, orange is a color too!"

I found this one shared by my severely disabled friend. Would you sympathise with her sentiment?
RobBlair comments on Dec 6, 2019:
Target of Bigotry/attacks - includes just about everyone. Just born babies I think still get a pass. Target of deportation - sure. Not being illegally in my country can be considered privilege. It's also, for most people, a choice. Being a legal immigrant exposed to deportation is usually limited to criminal behavior. Also, mostly a choice. Target of genocide - a violation to the right to life. Call it out and I'll be happy to join with you against it. "Its hard and exhausting to bring up issues of oppression" Bringing up generic issues of oppression is very easy. It's only when you start talking specifics when you lose peoples' votes. What's tiring is when people take a position based on faulty information and then pretend its the other peoples fault for not agreeing with the supposed oppression. Here's the rest of her post - "And when you read the critiques of the march from other progressive women who didn’t feel represented, don’t get defensive or discouraged. Activism needs critique. We need to ask ourselves where we were as Flint’s water has been poisoned, or where we were when Philando Castile was killed, or John Crawford or Eric Garner or Charleena Lyles. If the women who showed up at the march would show up when people of color are murdered, it would stop. Intersectionality means showing up even when the issues don’t affect us directly. Stay awake and stay active. We need you so much right now." https://motherwiselife.org/to-my-friends-who-are-sick-of-politics/ "Flint's water has been poisoned" - hard not to call this a complete lie. The source water for Flint is somewhat acidic and was typically treated until the local government decided to be cheapos and not treat it. Then the acidic water flowed from the street pipes into the house lines that had yet to be upgraded to copper or PVC from the original lead. The lead pipes "melted" into the houses water supply and contaminated it. Perhaps you can say the house owner or the house pipes "poisoned" Flint's water, but it didn't. At best, it just poisoned the house's water. Just looked at the Castile case yesterday. Pulled over on a traffic violation, announced to the officer that he had a gun, proceeded to go into his pockets while the officer yells at him to not reach for his gun. Officer sees his gun and shoots him. Very sad and yet the presumption of racism is unfounded. John Crawford - just looked it up. His actions seem indefensible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvgQ1AHYgTg Eric Garner - Refused to cooperate with arrest and dies due to complications due to an illegal choke hold and poor health. Also very sad and not evidence of racism. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24PAhUhnACo Charleena Lyles - Crazy woman attacks cops with ...

Said another way - "We are driven by self-interest, it’s necessary to survive. But we need wise self-interest that is generous and co-operative, taking others’ interests into account. Co-operation comes from friendship, friendship comes from trust, and trust comes from kind-heartedness. Once you have a genuine sense of concern for others, there’s no room for cheating, bullying or exploitation." - Dalai Lama and - "No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable." - Adam Smith and - "To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man." - William Shakespeare or similar - "Self-interest is not myopic selfishness. It is whatever it is that interests the participants, whatever they value, whatever goals they pursue. The scientist seeking to advance the frontiers of his discipline, the missionary seeking to convert infidels to the true faith, the philanthropist seeking to bring comfort to the needy - all are pursuing their interests, as they see them, as they judge them by their own values." - Milton Friedman And in opposition to - "Self-interest is the enemy of all true affection." - Franklin D.

I would place credit card data under the presumption of privacy. As a matter of fact, this is considered Confidential Personal Information and should be redacted from public records. Government obtaining this information without warrant is unconstitutional (like phone call records). Perhaps Wexler could organize a list of elected officials to forward an anti-2nd amendment amendment. I'm sure we'd be happy to put their names on local billboards in their constituencies.

RobBlair comments on Dec 5, 2019:
"I have observed this in my experience of slavery, - that whenever my condition was improved, instead of its increasing my contentment, it only increased my desire to be free, and set me to thinking of plans to gain my freedom. I have found that, to make a contented slave, it is necessary to make a thoughtless one. It is necessary to darken his moral and mental vision, and, as far as possible, to annihilate the power of reason. He must be able to detect no inconsistencies in slavery; he must be made to feel that slavery is right; and he can be brought to that only when he ceased to be a man." - Frederick Douglass, former slave, Stalwart Abolitionist, Great American Treasure
