Americans shall be required to submit to a background check to exercise a right already guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment while any foreigner shall be allowed into America without submitting to a background check.

There is a sweet irony here. However, I see more regulation just around the corner and a new environmental move to ban lights at night to cut down on “pollution”.

I agree, their solution always involves more government rather than less.

What's wrong with light???? I have a better solution, stop making fixed nitrogen from air. This would reduce the food supply below that which is needed to sustain the current world wide population, thus cutting the burden by about 2-4 billion people. Resources would explode (relatively) and we would prosper - just like after the black plague reduced the population and increased supply for those who were left.

Another solution would be for those that propose this type of thing to volunteer for euthanasia. However, I doubt they would be willing to be the ones to follow their own ideas. Kind of like those billionaires on the left that say they want their income taxes increased. They are free to send in as much extra as they care to. Problem is they don't care to.

With a little thinking they could aim lights better. Light pollution is a constant peeve of mine. The sports park the city rammed down this neighborhood has big lights that shine right in the windows, and they "forget" to turn them off.

Now they are finding out that the new LED traffic lights don't melt frost and snow, so go blank in storms. And they don't just replace worn out lights or bulbs, they take down good new ones and install the new expensive ones.

Same for street signs; someone figured out small case letters are easier to read than the old all capitals, so instead of using the new style when replacing signs, they took ALL thenm down and put up new ones

Isn't the old saying: "Penny wise, pound foolish"?

just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they are not watching you

I like the idea of aimed lights. Hadn’t thought of that. A redesign of the security light should help.

The world needs a huge war, plague or natural disaster.

99% of all Lawyers give the other 1% a bad name. What I find hilarious about this is they are such an arrogant bunch, that they all think they are in the 1%.

Billy. You are free to off yourself. One less mouth for Mother Nature then eh? That would be fully consistent with your view. How strongly do you believe what you said?
