"A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation's capital right now," he said at the time. "They are gathered together for the White House Correspondents' dinner -- without the President. And I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from Washington's swamp, spending my evening with all of you and with a much, much larger crowd and much better people."

 as usual you skirted around the point of the post.  

 

so youre ok with the 'state' deciding when you die?  youre ok with the 'state' putting guards at your door preventing family from taking you to another doctor for a 2nd or 3rd opinion or 

even for just taking you home to die in the comfort of home and family and friends.  oh yeah....i remember! you do NOT value life.  gotcha!

 Italy wanted to try. Germany said if he was there a year ago he would be home now. I don't know, think they should have let them try.

Doctor Group Releases Astonishing Research on Firearm Suppressors

 Share on Facebook Tweet Email Print

Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership (DRGO) has released research that recommends use of firearm suppressors as a critical health intervention to prevent hearing loss from gun use:

Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership (DRGO) has released a white paper, prepared by highly credentialed subject matter medical experts, that provides supporting information for the proposed Hearing Protection Act of 2017 (H.R. 367 and its companion bill S.59), which are being considered to aid in protecting the hearing of hunters and recreational firearms users.

The causal relationship between loud noise exposure and irreversible hearing loss and chronic tinnitus have long been recognized by medicine and the U.S. government, DRGO said.

The document cites the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communicative Disorders (NIDCD) as well as academic studies and publications which collectively provide a preponderance of evidence supporting the need for greater access to and use of firearms suppressors.

Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership strongly supports making firearm suppressors readily available to the public as a critical health intervention to prevent Americans hearing loss, said DRGO Project Director, Dr. Arthur Przebinda. Reducing barriers to firearms suppressor ownership and decreasing the likelihood of gunshot blast noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus in tens of millions of U.S. firearms owners will have no material impact on criminal firearms use.

More from the Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership (DRGO) position paper on firearm suppressors:

Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is a real public health problem:

The causal relationship between loud noise exposure and irreversible hearing loss has long beenrecognized by medicine and the U.S. government.

NIHL is permanent and untreatable. Prevention is the only possible intervention.

Demonstrable need:

NIHL is the most prevalent service-connected disability among Veterans.

Per the CDC, 15% of adults aged 18 and over (or nearly 38 million American) have hearing problems.

Over 100 million Americans who own guns are at risk for gunshot-induced NIHL. Auditory injuries are sustained by bystanders the same as by shooters.

Nearly all gunshots exceed the noise threshold for instant damage to the hearing cells of the inner ear. And their explosive blast generates 1,000 times the force on the eardrum than the noise itself.

Benefit of suppressors:

Muzzle blast sound levels from most firearms range from 140 to over 170 decibels. 120 decibels is considered the maximum safe level for short exposures (the intensity of a car horn 3 feet away). Ear plugs and/or ear muffs only reduce noise by 20-30 decibels.

Evidence supporting the need for greater use of firearms suppressors comes from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communicative Disorders, the Centers for Disease Control, as well as academic and military research.

Muzzle-mounted suppressors are vastly superior to ear protectors, providing 50% greater noise reduction.

Only suppressors can make most modern firearms safe for hearing, as noise at gun ranges routinely reaches 160 decibels.

Conventional ear protectors deafen the wearer to external sound. Suppressors facilitate clear verbal communication between shooters, increasing safety.

Restricting suppressors is a longstanding obstacle to hearing safety:

Listing suppressors in the 1934 National Firearms Act for no apparent reason made them extremely expensive and difficult to acquire here. They are readily available to gun owners in much of Europe and in New Zealand, where firearms are more strictly regulated.

Suppressors do not promote crime:

Suppressed gunfire is still very loud, about 120 decibels. There is no evidence that commercialsuppressors increase the danger of criminal shootings. Single-use suppressors can easily be made at home.

Criminals want easily concealed weapons; suppressors may double the length of handguns. Illegal suppressor use is extraordinarily rare, and is prosecuted at a rate of only 0.02%.

What do you think about this subject?

Would the use of firearm suppressors reduce hearing loss among gun users?

It's like you read my mind Stan!

I was thinking we should have a special section just for weapons, that way when someone wants to make a thread about a particular model of gun, knife - ect. it has it's own thread. The same goes for gun laws and such.

I was also thinking of doing a computers / electronics forum for phones, software ect... I have already got a few threads to put in the computer forum that I can fish out of the MBTP section.

Do you think it would be worth setting up these two additional forums in the VDO off topic section?

Ohio Bill Bans All Abortions, Declares Unborn Babies as People Under Law
State Micaiah Bilger Mar 20, 2018 | 5:20PM Columbus, OH

A new bill in the Ohio legislature would ban all abortions in the state by recognizing unborn babies as people protected under the law.

Sponsored by state Reps. Ron Hood and Nino Vitale, Ohio House Bill 565 would prohibit all abortions in Ohio, ABC 6 News reports.

The goal of this bill is to first of all continue to get the word out that life does begin at conception and move the debate in that direction, and to protect unborn Ohioans from being aborted, Hood said, according to The Hill.

We make it very clear in the state of Ohio we consider the unborn child a person just like you, me or any other person that has a right to life, he continued.

Abortion activists with NARAL quickly blasted the legislation, claiming it is unconstitutional.

Anti-choice extremists from the Ohio Statehouse to the White House are lining up their dominoes to topple Roe v. Wade and punish those who seek or provide abortion care, said Kellie Copeland, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio executive director, in a statement.

According to The Hill, the bill does not include exceptions to save the life of the mother, and would make abortion a crime.

Abortion groups have succeeded in overturning similar laws in court. In 2012, the Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down a similar personhood bill as unconstitutional because it recognized unborn babies as human beings who deserve the right to life.

Though these lawmakers have good intentions to save unborn babies lives, personhood legislation, even if upheld in court, may not make abortions illegal. When considering a Missouri statute in 1989, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist ruled that the personhood statute was nothing more than a statement of position that had no bearing on banning abortions or even limiting them in any way.

The state of Missouri had approved a statute saying, the life of each human being begins at conception and unborn children have protectable interests in life, health, and well-being. The statute required that all Missouri state laws be interpreted to provide unborn children with rights equal to those enjoyed by other persons.

Follow LifeNews.com on Instagram for pro-life pictures and the latest pro-life news.

The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri struck down that provision and the abortion limits, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit affirmed and ruled they violated Roe.

The U.S. Supreme Court then ruled that it did not need to consider the constitutionality of the laws preamble, defining personhood at conception, as it could not be used to support any abortion laws that conflicted with Roe. Chief Justice William Rehnquist wrote the decision and Justice Anthony Kennedy joined in the opinion. Ultimately, the Supreme Court upheld the personhood language Missouri used decades ago but did not allow it to ban or even limit any abortions.

Therefore, most pro-life groups believe one of the keys to ending legalized abortion is overturning Roe v. Wade. The current Supreme Court justices are highly unlikely to do so, with conservative-leaning justices holding four of the nine seats.

President Donald Trump promised to nominate pro-life justices to the high court, but he would need to nominate and the Senate would have to confirm several before there is a chance of Roe v. Wade being overturned.

The sysadmin let it expire, its not serious. It is an opening for hackers, but what are they gonna do in 9 days?its an easy fix, but I dont think they give a fuck anymore.

 

if youre worried about it, run a deep scan with your anti-malware and antivirus.

White House Correspondents Dinner: Conservatives walk out as Michelle Wolf brutally ridicules Trump and aides

yahoo.com

 

Mike Allen 22 hours ago

Media hands Trump big, embarrassing win

Comedian Michelle Wolf smiles at the camera

Host Michelle Wolf at last night's White House Correspondents' Dinner. 

 

The White House Correspondents' Dinner ended with a barrage of vulgar anti-Trump jokes by comedian Michelle Wolf, who attacked the appearance of White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who was sitting with her at the head table.

 

What they're saying: White House officials in the audience thought Wolf's patter went too far, and thought the attacks on Sanders and Kellyanne Conway were too personal.

 

Be smart: That creates a new hurdle for the White House Correspondents' Association to lure President Trump, who has snubbed the dinner the last two years.

 

The reaction:

 

ABC's Jon Karl, a WHCA board member, said on "Good Morning America": "I think the comedian crossed the line and this went from poking fun to being mean-spirited."

Drudge's banner headline: "SMUT STAND-UP SHOCKS DC!"

Trump tweets: "While Washington, Michigan, was a big success, Washington, D.C., just didnt work. Everyone is talking about the fact that the White House Correspondents Dinner was a very big, boring bust...the so-called comedian really bombed. [Fox's] @greggutfeld should host next year! @PeteHegseth."

Why it matters: If the dinner can only attract liberal presidents and liberal comedians, the conclusion is inevitable.

 

Reality check from Jon Favreau, Crooked Media co-founder and "Pod Save America" co-host:

 

"Comedian ends comedy dinner by saying that Flint still doesnt have clean water, an attempt to point out Washingtons continued neglect of people who need help. Washington responds with a rigorous debate about the tone and civility of the comedians jokes. Perfect."

"I really dont know if I can handle a week of fighting over a comedy speech at a dinner."

How things went off the rails:

 

The Gridiron Club, which hosts another major dinner for Washington reporters, has a rule for its roasters: "Singe, don't burn."

And one guest told me a good rule of thumb for comedy is not to attack how people look or who they are.

Wolf an alumnus of "The Daily Show" who has a Netflix talk show coming May 27 didn't follow either of those, and said after an anatomical joke: "Should've done more research before you got me to do this."

She made several uses of a vulgarity that begins with "p," in an audience filled with Washington officials, top journalists and a few baseball legends (Brooks Robinson, Tony La Russa and Dennis Eckersley).

Among the printable jokes:

 

Just a reminder to everyone: Im here to make jokes. I have no agenda. Im not trying to get anything accomplished. So everyone who's here from Congress, you should feel right at home.

"I'm 32 years old, which is an odd age: 10 years too young to host this event, and 20 years too old for Roy Moore.

"It's 2018 and I'm a woman, so you cannot shut me up [applause] unless you have Michael Cohen wire me $130,000. Michael, you can find me on Venmo under my porn-star name: Reince Priebus."

"It is kind of crazy that the Trump campaign was in contact with Russia when the Hillary campaign wasnt even in contact with Michigan.

Wolf was panned by journo-twitter:

 

CNN's Jeff Zeleny: "It was an embarrassment in the room and surely to the audience at home."

N.Y. Times' Maggie Haberman: "That @PressSec sat and absorbed intense criticism of her physical appearance, her job performance, and so forth, instead of walking out, on national television, was impressive."

N.Y. Times' Peter Baker: "I would vote to leave the comedy acts to comedy shows and stick to journalism at journalism dinners."

Trump held a counter-programming rally in Washington Township, Mich., where he said:

 

"You may have heard I was invited to another event tonight, the White House Correspondents' Dinner. But i'd much rather be at Washington, Michigan, than in Washington, D.C., right now that I can tell you." [Cheers]

Something new from the rally ... In addition to "Lock her up" (still a thing at Trump rallies), the crowd chanted "Nobel!" when Trump talked about North Korea.

Correspondents' association president Margaret Talev standing under a banner that said "CELEBRATING THE FIRST AMENDMENT" began the evening by saying:

 

"The journalists were celebrating tonight help keep our democracy healthy."

"We reject efforts by anyone, especially our elected leaders, to paint journalism as un-American, to undermine trust between reporter and reader, to cast doubt on the relevance of facts and truth in the modern age. An attack on any journalist is an attack on us all."

"This isnt about protecting the business of journalism. Its about protecting the rule of law."

The bottom line: Watch for big debate whether to end the dinner as we know it, and whether some news organizations announce they will no longer attend.
