USA Patriot

Other

I love my family as well as this great country. I proudly display American flags around my home and I own too many items, which I continue to hang on to and the question I can't get out of my head is who, what, when, which, where and how does a person become a real patriot?

I am a husband, a father and extremely proud to be called UB, Uncle Bob, or GB, aka Grandpa BoB. I truly appreciate of all my blessings every day. I'm a proud American citizen, a property owner, and taxpayer. Like many of us, I'm an immigrant who entered the United States legally. My family once lived under communism in Cuba, but left all worldly riches behind and fled for a democratic way of life in the USA.

I am not a Republican or a Democrat. I have no political affiliation. I'm a Christian, but no longer attend regularly scheduled religious activities. I do not represent any special interest groups. I'm not an advocate for a specific lifestyle albeit I respect everyone.

“I know Melania. I haven’t talked to her in months, but if my gut is right, I don’t think she’s going to put up with it much longer. I know nothing. That’s just my instinct and I go with my gut and my gut’s always right. I’m just telling you, Melania’s got the worst job in the country and I don’t think she wants to do it a lot longer. I think she will do it for as long as she has to for her son, and that’s it,” Mika Brzezinski, MSNBC-TV

Hospital Carnage

Problem

At a 120-year-old Bronx Lebanon Hospital, a gunman shot several people and killed one, then tried to set himself on fire on the 17th floor, before he killed himself. He managed to get an AR 15 assault rifle inside the hospital. The questions that beg to be asked is whey is there no metal detectors at these public hospitals?

NYPD says at approx 2:55 pm a 911 call was received reported a male firing a gun on the 16th floor of Bronx Lebanon Hospital.

This was not an act of terrorism, @NYCMayor says of Bronx hospital shooting. "It was an isolated incident." http://cbsn.ws/2spZvqc
