HOW THEY VOTE
https://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes
A mal-intent may be removed from Congreff by a vote of 2/3 of his fellow thieves; but there are so many of them. And "it is dangerous to right when the government is wrong" ~Voltaire. So best to catch them at election time with voting records.      www.senate.gov/CRSpubs/ee067ba0-db71-4394-9a37-453316aeb453.pdf

UDHR: Universal Declaration of Human Rights
1948 (signed by every President since)
UDHR at the United Nations:
UDHR Article 2. Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.

Good Man President Jimmy Carter on UDHR and USA violations of UDHR
www.nytimes.com/2012/06/25/opinion/americas-shameful-human-rights-record.html
By JIMMY CARTER - JUNE 24, 2012: "While the country has made mistakes in the past, the widespread abuse of human rights over the last decade has been a dramatic change from the past. With leadership from the United States, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted in 1948 as “the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.” This was a bold and clear commitment that power would no longer serve as a cover to oppress or injure people, and it established equal rights of all people to life, liberty, security of person, equal protection of the law and freedom from torture, arbitrary detention or forced exile.

The declaration has been invoked by human rights activists and the international community to replace most of the world’s dictatorships with democracies and to promote the rule of law in domestic and global affairs. It is disturbing that, instead of strengthening these principles, our government’s counterterrorism policies are now clearly violating at least 10 of the declaration’s 30 articles, including the prohibition against “cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment." ~Jimmy Carter



My Opinion on 2 things: 1) The government needs to study and follow UDHR universal declaration of human rights (posted at the UN); and 2) needs to concur with what is taught in education in the social sciences, Sociology 101, Anthro 101, Psych 101, (2 of the 3 are required for graduation: associate degree, bachelor degree, or higher; trade and religious colleges do not follow the same guidelines, their units maybe be transferable, but not in the social sciences) else Congreff would not behave like like they do. With no proper education in the social sciences, some of the simplest things that everyone who is educated knows, have been ignored and opposed based on whims and assumptions, not education. It is an embarrassment to the educated; and a 200 year step back in human rights progress.

For instance: all 3 social sciences 101 courses across the country teach that "most homeless people do not deserve to be homeless but were just victims of circumstances" (there are no homeless in Sweden, everyone has medical care, they are all taken care of). "Men and women are equals except for special considerations during pregnancy."


UDHR Article 25.
(1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
(2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.

While some people in Congreff want to be able to fire women who had children out of wedlock, grow up, people like that should not be in government


Give people rights then take the rights back right away is not OK, in fact its another attempt to violate UDHR in this case Article 11.
(1) Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence.
(2) No one shall be held guilty of any penal offence on account of any act or omission which did not constitute a penal offence, under national or international law, at the time when it was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than the one that was applicable at the time the penal offence was committed.


Just think in terms of UDHR for a few minutes, while considering what is going on in the Republican Party for a few years now, they are challenging every aspect of UDHR trying to tear it down, when its already signed for, and its basically just like the Bill of Rights, just like the Constitution. If they stand against the already accepted UDHR they risk standing against the Bill of Rights and Constitution, as they are basically the same. Technically they might be considered Traitors, except for intent, I think it is just lack of proper education. I have written NV Congresswoman Dina Titus who is a former ULNV law and government professor, urging her to pursue getting essential educated information to all members of Congress, such as "most homeless people do not deserve to be homeless but were just victims of circumstances"; and "Men and women are equals except for special considerations during pregnancy.", etc. They must be informed that this is taught in all colleges across the USA.

WATER the worlds #1 issue:


but its Underground where you can't see it, and even though they know what goes on, no one wants to do anything about it, because you can't see it visually; and something needs to be done, in the country and in the city



LAOC WATER: Los Angeles / Orange County
uses 1/3 well water from wells around the area, but in times of drought, they use up to 2/3 well water (I would think with 12 million people, the wells would be long dry?)
Be you from the city, with wells all around; or from the country where everyone has a septic tank and a well, and so do the neighbors on down the hill, well, septic tank, well, septic tank, well, septic tank,.....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_in_California#Groundwater

https://www.drweil.com/ says that he himself drinks distilled water and cooks with distilled water. However, I am concerned about the source of my distilled water "Wells, Phoenix AZ", is that City Wells? just downhill from Phoenix?

There is no substitute for water, water not only hydrates but it pH balances.
WATER DAILY: Merck Manual pg 664 lists 1 quart minimum, however, 1.5 to 2.0 quarts is highly advised, and 2 gallons and above, exceeds the body's ability to excrete water. (2 quarts = 1/2 gallon)

These 21 senators voted to oppose the McCain-Feinstein amendment on torture, which explicitly bans the CIA from using torture.
Torture is already illegal by world law at the United Nations UDHR "Article 5. No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment."

"Here are their names:

  • Jeff Sessions of Alabama, a former U.S. attorney and state attorney general
  • Tom Cotton of Arkansas, an Iraq War combat veteran
  • Michael Crapo of Idaho
  • James Risch of Idaho
  • Daniel Coats of Indiana, who is not expected to seek reelection
  • Joni Ernst of Iowa, who has served more than two decades in the Army Reserve and National Guard
  • Pat Roberts of Kansas, a former chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, which oversees the CIA
  • Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Senate majority leader
  • David Vitter of Louisiana
  • Thad Cochran of Mississippi, a former Eagle Scout and Navy veteran, and current chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee
  • Roy Blunt of Missouri
  • Deb Fischer of Nebraska
  • Benjamin Sasse of Nebraska
  • Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, who said during a congressional hearing into the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal, “I'm probably not the only one up at this table that is more outraged by the outrage than we are by the treatment.”
  • James Lankford of Oklahoma, who holds a graduate degree in divinity and was formerly an evangelism specialist for the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma
  • Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who is seeking the GOP presidential nomination and worked to strip federal courts of jurisdiction to hear cases from Guantanamo Bay detainees
  • Tim Scott of South Carolina, an evangelical Christian who is opposed to abortion, gay rights, stem cell research, and euthanasia, and once fought to install the ten commandments outside a municipal building where he was an elected official
  • John Cornyn of Texas, a former state attorney general and associate justice of the Texas Supreme Court
  • Orrin Hatch of Utah, who called Jay Bybee, a primary author of Bush era torture memos, “one of the most honorable people you'll ever meet” while defending him against torture critics who wanted to remove him from a federal judgeship.
  • Mike Lee of Utah, who has opposed extending controversial portions of the Patriot Act as well as the indefinite detention of Americans in the War on Terrorism
  • John Barrasso of Wyoming

The wrongheaded votes cast by these Republicans should not be forgotten. Challengers should question their moral fitness in future primaries—many reside in states filled with Christians whose faith teaches that torture is an abomination. And anytime one of these Senators seeks higher office, is considered for a presidential appointment, or seeks a leadership position on a committee related to national security, he or she should be pressed about his or her position on the abuse of prisoners. If unwilling to condemn torture in speech and deed, all “nay” voters should be denied any role that puts them in a position to enable torture in a future panic."

Nuremberg executions at the end of World War 2:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_executions






www.archure.net author: I am a non-partisan Liberal, and my family was best pals with Ronald and Nancy Reagan. (My mom once worked for Nixon, he was nice to me when I was a kid, US Senator retired Harry Reid used to look after me when I was a kid, he took me to an arcade, I met US Sen CA Diane Feinstein a could of times, sat in on an intro class session with the very qualified US Congreffwoman NV Dina Titus, gvmt professor, and wanted to take the class except for fiscal concerns (the college demands money). I met Bill and Hillary when I was a future presidential prospect (high IQ), the Reagans said they had nothing to do with it, but I was disqualified for saying I would refuse to go to war. Bill Clinton went thru the same questions and told them he would go to war, but confided to me that he lied to them, he would not go to war, and didn't (good man, and Hillary gets credit for supporting him thru the White House). I think the #1 issue is Water, drinkable? water. #2 Population #3 Education, Congreff needs it, as some of their actions are contrary to what you learn in college social sciences; psychology, sociology, and (the core) anthropology. I used to listen to the Reagans talk astrology, such as "producer Joe, is popular now with venus retrograding back and forth, but in a few months when saturn nears his 10th, he is going to consolidate and drop one of the shows" that kind of talk. I used to tell Ron he should be President, because he had saturn in the 4th house, and if he can do it, I can do it, I have saturn in the 4th also (when I was age 7, but I knew them all my childhood); but I would not want to be president, crummy job, take garbage all the time from the opposing party, have to travel all over in sitting duck one, and privacy in the White House? But if I were president, I would hang out at the United Nations all the time. Make lots of friends. I think Bernie would have been ideal, but years ago I encouraged Hillary to run and promised her and Bill, I would vote for her, and did, even though I met Donald Trump when I was a photographer, he was nice and asked for my vote, but I told him of my promise to Hillary, but Trump was very nice. I am appalled at some of what he said in the pre-election, but if that's what it takes to get elected? the 48 Laws of Power. Actions speak louder than words. I am hoping that his good intentions has or gets some good education in the social sciences, he should have, congreff should have, advisors educated in the social sciences (from non-religious colleges who do not teach proper sciences, the Church used to be the leader in science and education, 1000 years ago, and they want everything to stay the same, the earth to remain flat). With the Separation of Church and State, an education from a religous college might not properly qualify a person for government work (while a religious education should be considered for other careers), is my opinion. By the people, of the people, for the people; government is here to help, structure society, for the good of the people, not for the exclusive filling the pockets for a few. We need a world that is good for Everyone. We should look at the other countries of the world to see what they have to offer? Sweden has the best health care, and no homeless, they take care of people, some countries have better education policies, some have free college. We are way down the list on education #24, but #1 in military.
