Great Model Railroad ...Museum of Science & Industry ...Chicago Illinois...Whin in town...see it!!!

And See All the Sites in Chicago, the Lake Front is beautiful.!!!

If you didn't know it ......Chicago borders on Lake Michigan. & the parks and beaches are incredible!!

My father took to the museum there 70 years ago. If in Chicago, go to this museum if you have the time. Yes, it is worth the
expense of going in. Wonderful museum and very large with lots of exhibits. Yes, about science and all kinds of science.
It has an old main street, baby chicks hatching, and many other exhibits. (as well as a great model train exhibit)
And a tour through a coal mind and a German U Boat submarine.

About the 2nd Amendment to the Constituion....

2nd Amendment:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Keep in mind this one truth. There were no police forces in the U.S.A. at the time that was written. "A well regulated Militia" was the local "Police Force.".......and another very important point.........

The writers of the Constitution of the United States were very bright, but they had no idea what the future would hold.
Guns were very expensive then. No mass produced products in factories. NO TV, NO Mass Media, NO GUN SHOWS, NO THIS
AND NO THAT. PEOPLE RODE AROUND ON ............HORSES.........IF YOU COULD AFFORD ONE..........
NO RADIO, NO CARS, NO TRUCKS, NO RAILROADS, NO THIS, AND NO THAT.


PICTURING THE LATE 1700s ---AIN'T EASY....guns were expensive and only some people could afford them.

Also, education was very expensive and not for everyone. Imagine the fastest way to go was a well equipped sail boat.
But you cannot imagine that. Oh...got to add this..........NO TELEPONES, CELL PHONES, NO PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, NO PUBLIC
EDUCATION ...(OR very rare)...Food was very expensive. work was 6 days a week, no unions, no labor laws. etc. etc. etc.

If you can't picture the times when the U.S. Constitution was written, I am not sure you can criticize the writers of the
2nd Amendment. Get the picture....nope...............well.............

No Proof at all.......I am speculating that Justice Department will get Donald Trump.

Further, Trump will be found guilty after a lengthy trial. .................

NO PROOF AT ALL...JUST A ...'SPECULATION.'

Very Sad & Horrific Sentences about U.S.A. Compared to Other Countries.

I Found them researching Chelsea Clinton.... Very important first 7 words, 2nd sentence)
_______________________________________________________________________________

Clinton hopes that by the time her children become parents, things will be different. American women today are 50% more likely to die in childbirth than their mothers, according to a study published by Harvard Medical School.

“It’s upsetting that things are getting worse,” she says, noting that our country is also “failing” women when it comes to paid maternity leave.

According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the U.S. is one of the only developed nations that does not require employers to provide any paid leave to new parents.

“Ideally, I’d like to see four months paid leave,” Clinton tells TODAY.com. “It’s really important to be able to provide that time and space that a new mom and her baby need. And we should have it for everyone, whether you're an hourly employee or a salaried employee. It's an investment in the future of our country."

About Stuart G

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.
