Say NO to gun control

One of the first thing dictators do when they take command is remove the publics ability to defend itself.

These school massacres occur because the government has violated the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution by declaring "gun free zones."

These "gun free zones" violate the second amendment just as "free speech zones" violate the first amendment. When you remove a persons ability to defend themselves you essentially sentence then to death at the hands of these killers. If only one person was armed and ready to shoot that killer, we could have avoided this whole tragedy.

One such example was the Appalachian School of Law shooting where students who were armed and had concealed carry permits were able to subdue a shooter.

It is clear that the second amendment must be defended, for the public safety.

Monsanto corn causes kidney and liver toxicity

A type of genetically modified corn, produced by Monsanto, has proven to cause kidney and liver toxicity as well as hormonal changes in animals; this corn, MON863, was approved for human consumption in 2006.

Here are just some of the findings:

Male rats lost 3.3 percent of their body weight and their internal dietary chemistry was disturbed. Female rats lost 3.7 percent of their body weight and their triglycerides increased 24 to 40 percent. Triglycerides are fat deposits in the blood stream.

Again, this corn was approved for human consumption.

Approved in the United States, Canada, China, the E.U., Japan, Mexico and The Phillipines.

Feel sick yet?

Well, if you eat Monsanto corn, you just might!

Let's get this show on the road!

Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution
"The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."
The procedure:
Impeachment resolutions, written by members of the House, are turned over to the House Judiciary Committee which then decides the validity of the resolution, the claims within and whether the claims merit a referral to the House for a formal vote.

The House then votes on whether to hold formal impeachment hearings, a simple majority is required to proceed.

If a majority approves the measure, the House Judiciary Committee conducts and investigation to determine if enough evidence is available to warrant indictment of the President. Formal articles of impeachment are drafted, including the specific charges that are supported by evidence. The Committee must vote on each article of impeachment in order for them to be sent to the House floor.

The House votes on whether a trial in the Senate is necessary, this requires a simple majority.

If a majority approves the articles of impeachment a trial is prepared in the Senate with special members of the House acting as prosecutors.

With the Chief Justice presiding, a formal trial is held in the Senate. The President may be represented by any person he wishes. The President's presence is not required for the proceedings.

The trial may be held on the Senate floor or in a Senate Committee, which would report all matters to the Senate floor.

The trial is held, witnesses are examined and cross-examined, all questions from Senators are submitted in writing.

After the evidence and arguments are heard, the Senate deliberates in private and finally holds a public vote on whether to convict or acquit the President. A 2/3 majority is necessary for a conviction.

Personal Update

Wow, time sure does fly.

Anyways, I am suffering from a cold, I always get this way in the spring, I don't know why. This morning I woke up wheezing and coughing and I had a stuffed up nose. Thankfully I took some medication that should clear this up.

Next, about this site:

I changed the layout, it was originally designed to work with an 800x600 resolution but this did not allow me to make maximum usage of the space, plus I wanted to add some material but it would not fit. I now have a flexible layout, it will work in both large resolutions and smaller resolutions.
