To me, this man, Sheriff Joe Arapio, is one of the most honest, most straight-shooting politicians (sheriffs are elected, right?) to have ever offered a suffering America a fresh breath of honesty and directness one would associate with an intelligent cop.
So, Sheriff Joe.. you would definitely be welcomed up here in Northern NYS, the FREE. LIBERTY-LOVING part of NY.
I would add to that we are the most litigious society in the world's history. With 4.4 percent of the world's population, we literally have 75 percent of the lawyers. You think this doesn't drive up the cost of medical care? My cousin is a pediatrician with a sterling record, and yet his malpractice insurance is around $150,000 per year. Add to that the cost of his office and staff. He has to make around $300,000 to break even. Then there is the matter of insurance that is available in some states and not in others. I remember a few years ago, a very good Dental plan was advertised on TV. When I called to purchase it, I found that it was not available in my state. Drop the barriers and let the insurance companies compete across all state lines. I paid higher insurance because more affordable policies could not be sold in Georgia. This is ridiculous.

I was rather dismayed to see Trump use the Coast Guard Academy commencement address, to whine about himself, specifically, the unfair way the press and others are treating him. Not only are these self inflicted wounds, they're exaggerated as well. He went so far as to claim that he's been treated worse than any President in history, an exaggeration like the one where he had the largest electoral win of any President in history, or the largest inaugural crowd in history. It might have helped him if he'd actually read any of the history he's claiming to have exceeded, but that's another story.
I don't recall Trump having been accused of not being a natural born American, faking his college transcripts, or of being a Muslim, do you? Come to think of it, Trump himself is the originator of some of those accusations against the previous President. Is this Karma maybe? In any case, the striking thing, beyond the exaggeration, is that Trump is responsible for his wounds, and no one else - the press just has the audacity to repeat the stupid things he does and says. He has a staff of justifiers and explainers, doing their best to spin his lunacy, but within 24 hours, he undoes all their hard work with the next tweet or interview.
Perhaps, Trump is NOT involved with Russia, but the folks in his circle cannot make that claim, and only an idiot would not be aware of what his people were doing. That means, either Trump is a total idiot, or he's complicit, take your pick. Trump made the claim that he was elected to look out for the forgotten people, but his actions forgot all about them too, as all of his actions served himself and his corporate friends - and no one else. So, he's being treated unfairly - by the media pointing out his failures to keep his promises, repeating his outrageous claims, and giving a voice to all the lawmakers fed up with his foolishness.
Had he believed that the President should be respected and revered - he might have kept his mouth and his twitter account off of the Previous holder of that office. What goes around comes around, no? He can whine all he wants - but it was HE who shit in his own pool.

Dear Michael: Truer words have never been spoken! At age 84 I have witnessed everything you mentioned in your post. May God bless you! Snoopy
According to Glaucon: (My comments in italics "My Republican friends most important goal seems to be to insure our fellow humans don't get food, clothing, shelter or health care "they don't' deserve." Do you think Mother Teresa might have a different "most important goal?" Just you. You're the only one who doesn't deserve to "get food, clothing, shelter or health care" in this whole world. Mother Teresa didn't like you either. She even said so on her death bed.
"At the end of our lives, we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made or how many great things we have done. We will be judged by ' I was hungry and you gave me food to eat. I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless and you took me in. Mother Teresa?" There are those among us who have received many diplomas, we have made lots and lots of money and made some of the most breathtakingly great achievements. In doing so, we have enabled ourselves to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and house the homeless. You, on the other hand, have done none of these things and shall only be judged on your monumental failures, of which there are many.
"The last time I posted this kind of question, many responded with rage, and personal attacks. Why do you suppose I received that kind of responses. I received no responses in support of Mother Teresa and why do you suppose I didn't?" Because you are a lowlife hack who is trying to leverage the good name and monumental achievements of a good christian woman who would be spinning in her grave if she knew what you were trying to do with her untarnished legacy. She is truly a saint. You, on the other hand, are bereft of redeeming qualities. That's why.

I was walking along, smoking a cigarette. Some guy came up to me and asked if I had a smoke. I said no. He didn't take kindly to this, so the idiot grabbed my arm. Surprised, I turned and knocked his arm away. This really seemed to upset him. I went into combat mode. As he started to swing on me, my right hand was already taking a position in front of my face. His fist met my palm, which held onto it. I immediately grabbed his wrist with my left hand, bringing his elbow against my ribs, up near my armpit. I pivoted to my right with everything I had, and the guys elbow bent in a way nature never intended. Fight over. I think it lasted 5 seconds or less. Now, I'm no tough guy. This is a little maneuver that I have practiced many times. I'm not that fast either. I'm not sure what clued me to the fact that he was about to swing on me. Must have been something subliminal. This just goes to show that a little preparation can go a long way in a violent encounter. Don't be a victim.

IN THE 60'S WE LOST OUR INNOCENCE. "Us" by Paul Genova
(Mr. Paul Genova has been President and Chief Operating Officer of Wireless Telecom Group Inc. since June 30, 2016).
I haven't said too much about this election since the start....but this is how I feel....
I'm noticing that some folks aren't graciously accepting the fact that their candidate lost.
In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those of us who voted for Trump.
Some of you are apparently "triggered" because you are posting how "sick" you feel about the results.
How did this happen you ask? Well here is how it happened!
You created "us" when you attacked our freedom of speech.
You created "us" when you attacked our right to bear arms.
You created "us" when you attacked our Christian beliefs.
You created "us" when you constantly referred to us as racists.
You created "us" when you constantly called us xenophobic.
You created "us" when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.
You created "us" when you attacked our flag.
You created "us" when you took God out of our schools.
You created "us" when you confused women's rights with feminism.
You created "us" when you began to emasculate men.
You created "us" when you decided to make our children soft.
You created "us" when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.
You created "us" when you attacked our way of life.
You created "us" when you decided to let our government get out of control.
You created "us" the silent majority.
You created "us" when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.
You created "us" when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.
You created "us" when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.
You created "us" when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn't remove your hat during our National Anthem.
You created "us" when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.
And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up. And we did it with ballots, not bullets. With ballots, not riots. With ballots, not looting. With ballots, not blocking traffic. With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of "us".
"YOU" created "US".

Thank you! You brought to the forefront valid issues that needed to be pointed out.
I just wonder if folks fear for their gun ownership rights, would be as frenzied, if there were no NRA? There has never been a single piece of legislation proposed that would eliminate gun ownership, not from any lawmaker from any party, yet, every piece of legislation designed to keep legal firearms out of the hands of illegal people - has been met with a frenzy of NRA propaganda - and led to markedly increased gun sales - and NRA income.
It's becoming pretty clear that all threats of gun reductions or limitations, are manufactured, false flag events - to increase gun sales and NRA income.
We're being played here folks.
