What is a rainbow nation? How does this affect the United States? How will it be affected in the future?
A rainbow nation is a nation of more than one race, color, or religion. This is what the United States was created for a long time ago. The original reason that the United States was settled. It was for religious freedom. If you look at the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights you will find this. The first Amendment of the Bill of Rights says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise therefore; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
So what is the current administration doing? When President Trump tried to do a ‘ban’ on people who are from certain countries – he was violating the first amendment! The very thing that he said he would defend! The reason that he did that was to cause fear of a group of people. Fear is a powerful thing and a dangerous thing.
If you look at what has happened in the past with Germany, you will see that it has happened before and nearly destroyed the country. We are there again. We have power that others don’t.
If we look at the Constitution of the United States we can see how we can fix the issue. In the Constitution of the United States it says in Section 3: “The Senate shall have the sole power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present. Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.”
Why is this one important? We are supposed to be a rainbow nation. No person is above the law.We have a problem when you read on CNN’s new app that one religious group is being targeted for hate. This is something that is happening. There was an article about the Jewish Community being scared due to the fact that so many bomb threats were being called in (http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/28/us/bomb-threats-jewish-centers-jcc/index.html ). These are people that are in the United States and have the right of the First Amendment to have the freedom of religion.
What can you do? Get a copy of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and all the Amendments that have been added to it. If you have a Windows 10 computer you can get a copy for free from the Windows Store. Learn it, and make your elected people know that this is what you hold them accountable to.
Do you have to be related to someone to be family? Could it be a friend that is like a sister or brother? Can a neighbor be that close?
Yes a neighbor and a friend can be close enough to a person to be family. Blood ties don’t always tell the truth. I have neighbors that are closer to me than my own family. I am famous for adopting people and Rain and John are two of the people in my apartment complex that I have done that with. We seem to get along, they understand the way that I think and the fact that I am challenged and I have been able to help them when they have problems that they need to talk about, or a shoulder to cry on.
John is one person that I don’t have to worry about complaining how I look due to the fact that he is blind. He never complains about the food and has more than once said that it is really good.
Rain and I have both had challenges in our live and we are able to understand how the other person feels when times are hard. We have had our good times and our bad times but each time the other needs an emotional shoulder to stand on, we are there. It has been that way since I first met her.
More and more I don’t see people helping each other and it pisses me off. Why can’t kids see past the most recent game on their phone. I have seen teen age kids that won’t help someone with getting their groceries up the stairs because they aren’t getting paid for it. I have had young kids say they will help me with mine IF I give them a six pack of soda in payment.
That is not the way that it should go. It should be due to the fact that they want to help someone out.
Am I strange for feeling this way? Am I wrong for feeling this way?
Would you be willing to do anything for this country? Would you be willing to give the ultimate sacrifice for it?
I have heard the current President of this great land say that Senator John McCain is not a hero. My problem is that the current President has never served in the military. He says that Senator John McCain is not really a hero due to the fact that he was captured during his time in the military. Understand this, a hero is a person who has the choice of being able to go home or stay with their troops. Senator McCain knew that due to who his father was, he would have been used as propaganda if he left his troops. He made a choice and stayed.
While Senator John McCain was suffering, the current President was getting waivers to prevent from getting drafted. He said he was in school and had bad feet so he couldn’t serve in the military.
I was able to. I am a female and have had a hard time but I will still stand by my country. I have seen the pain and suffering from a person who has too much power. We have been there before and have said never again. Now we have a person who wants to put us in the same problem as before.
NEVER AGAIN! This should be more than a set of words but a reminder of the past.
Do you have to spend a fortune for white teeth? Not really sure, but this is working for me. I am a smoker and have bad teeth due to medication that I am taking. I don’t have dental insurance so one day I had a bad toothache and I know that cream of tartar works for bug bites and other types of infection on the skin to remove it by ‘pickling’ it.
I brushed my teeth like normal and then did it again with cream of tartar. The pain was gone and within a few days the infection was gone too. My teeth were getting whiter as well.
Please,IF YOU HAVE DENTAL INSURANCE GET YOUR TEETH CHECKED AS YOUR TEETH ARE IMPORTANT.
This is a way to help keep them whiter without the chemical process that others use.
This must stop! The attacks against people of ‘Non-Christian’ religious beliefs must stop! The religious beliefs of a person are not to be stepped on. The destruction of cemeteries, bomb threats, all the crap must stop.
The freedom of religion is one that we have from not only the Constitution of the United State, but also something we were born with. I don’t see why people feel that attacking someone due to their religious beliefs is something that is safe to do. I am tired of Trumps lies. Now we are seeing the effects, with the hatred and destruction of people’s property. Why are people not understanding that the B.S. that is coming out of Trumps mouth and see the truth.
The people who are doing this need to stop! There is no reason to attack someone due to the religious belief. The fact is that the white power movement is claiming that there is a white genocide happening and there is NOTHING HAPPENING OF THE NATURE.
This is supposed to be country of the free and religious beliefs are part of those freedoms.
Make it stop by passing the information along.
