I am reading this wrong or are they advocating digging into not only having access to your mental health history but your medical one as well? So they will suspend HIPAA when it convenient for the government to do so?
One thing that I believe we all concur with is the tragic loss of life due to gun violence in the last six months. However, I still allude to people committed these crimes. Granted the weapons were part of the equasion but cannot be solely regarded as the main reason for the occurance. As I previously stated, the list contains many opportunities to infinge on privacy without needing much latitude to do so. The violence in our country is a result of our current society's lack of moral compass. This coupled with the desensitivity to violence. Lastly, we have forgot that we have duty to be our brothers keeper. As with many problems in our country, we have a huge stake if any real change is going to happen
One of my huge concerns is granting my doctor the ability to ask if I have firearms in my home while treating my sore throat. This has the potential to be sorely abused. Consider the fact that the way doctors will report this will directly coorelate to their own beliefs. Scary stuff folks
The 4.5 billion wasted on this could have been used to hire retired policeman and sheriffs to protect the schools of the innocents and reducing disaster to a minimum. This only exacerbates the problem!
"The violence in our country is a result of our current society's lack of moral compass."
That one sentence pretty much covers the reality of where we are at this point in time.
These executive orders will further allow the breakdown of the order in which our government was intended to function.
Huge sums of money will be wasted by these executive orders.
We will lose more of our rights in the process.
You cannot legislate morality.
You can legislate immorality.
America's moral slide continues in decline.
Jimmy, little harsh even for you...However, like it or not or whatever you call it. "We the People" are the root of the gun violence. Saying morality is a part of the issue is a true statement. with that said,being a member of a church does not make you morale... as all of us have seen differntly at one time or another. My version of the good old days is our fellow man actually being part of the human condition and at times being our brothers keeper. A tirade of new laws is not going to fix the violence. Until we as a country start policing ourselves there will not be much of change. You can take all of the guns in the world away however, you can't take crazy away; they will just find another vehicle for which to commit their despicable acts.
24. Starting with Obama, all ex-presidents and their spouse will have secret service protection for life instead of the normal 10 years.
"Now THAT, HMJC, is HARSH. Pure good ole day passing judgement hatefilled harshness."
It's what they do, JM.
JM,please don't construe my comments as personal. If they were received as such that was not my intent. Just trying to stay objective in relation to the blog topic. I have never had the illusion that all will concur with my opinion. I do enjoy objective dialouge minus personal attacks. Thanks
