I will bet you, for most of you, that if you go home in the next two weeks while your members of Congress are home, and you look them in the eye and you say, ‘What is your positive replacement for Obamacare?’ they will have zero answer.
The RNC has released a new ad featuring President Obama consoling Nicole Hockley, a mother who lost her son in the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, after Senate Republicans successfully filibustered bipartisan gun reforms that would have extended background checks.
I feel like writing about compression, so hopefully some guitarists out there will read this and make use of my sagely wisdom.
I’m sure you’ve seen one of these little boxes at the local guitar shop with only two or three knobs and words like “Attack” and “Sustain” written on them. Surely they can’t be very useful, right? Maybe you’ve even plugged one in and, to your surprise, it didn’t DO anything. Compression has got to be one of the most simple effects, but still it continues to confuse and elude all of us gearheads. In this article I’m going to explain what a compressor does and why you should have one in your rig.
We need to pass an amendment to the Constitution that applies term limits to every political position, appointment and job both big and small.
We should eliminate any and all public sector pension plans.
We should eliminate all public sector unions across the board.
All forms of federal lending and loans should end.
We should have an open forum online or otherwise that shows a proposed bill in simple language for the public to read before it is passed…just like Obama said he was going to do, but didn’t.
We should allow Congress and the state legislatures to overturn Supreme Court decisions with a three-fifths vote.
We should write an amendment to limit the seizure of private property by any form of government.
We should write an amendment that allows the states to overrides Congressional decision by a majority vote in two-thirds of state legislatures.
We should write an amendment that allows the states to amend the Constitution with a two-third majority of the states.
We should build a physical border and strictly enforce our immigration policies.
We should reform our immigration policies to make it easier, cheaper and straightforward to become a US citizen.
Voter Identification should be mandatory across all states.
After abolishing the Department of Education, we should turn over all education decisions to the state governments, which in turn should turn everything over to the districts, which in turn should turn everything over to the individual schools, which in turn should turn everything over to each individual teacher.
Anyone should be able to attend the school of their choice regardless of residence.
We should allow citizens opt-out of paying property taxes if they choose to enroll their children in private school.
The FCC should be abolished.
We should decriminalize drug use and drug ownership.
We should end the war on drugs.
We should remove any affiliation between marriage and the government in any aspect or regard.
We should allow all freedom of religious expression in any form of public property or event regardless if it offends someone. If it does offend…too bad.
Now for a couple of my own personal ideas…
Fist fighting should be a fair way to settle differences.
Liquor stores should be open as early or late as they want.
There should be no more building codes or standards for anything. I should be able to use the light bulbs of my choice; build my house anyway I so choose; and be able to sell my property to someone regardless of any requirements or standards it does or doesn’t meet.
You shouldn’t have to register your vehicle unless you want to have proof that you own it, just like any other form of property.
You should be allowed to own any type of firearm you so desire without obtaining a special stamp or obtaining any special permission.
