I don't have a document to read.

House conservatives (click here) say they have the votes to bring down a Republican plan to replace Obamacare, threatening a core piece of President Donald Trump's agenda and sparking a frantic, 11th-hour pressure campaign by the president and House GOP leaders.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), chairman of the arch-conservative House Freedom Caucus, claimed Wednesday that 25 of his colleagues would reject the House's health care plan, exceeding the 22 Republican "no" votes necessary to block the legislation. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has scheduled a Thursday vote on the bill, but several Freedom Caucus members and their Senate allies urged him to postpone the vote and go back to the negotiating table....

Thank you. The country thanks you. The best person to speak to ANY weakness in the ACA is President Obama. Ask him.

No one said the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was perfect. No one claimed that. However, IT WAS NECESSARY.

Hold a closed session and allow President Obama speak to his observations and frustrations with the ACA. He was challenged by some of the provisions. I am confident he has a critique no one expects. Minority Leader Pelosi should set up a closed session of the US House to invite President Obama to speak regarding the ACA. I am confident he holds no malice to any member of Congress and would be willing to do such a presentation.

Therefore, what?

..."My wife told me I'm supposed to do this." (click here)
In the wide-ranging interview, Mr Tillerson said he had been due to retire this month after spending more than 40 years at oil giant Exxon Mobil. He turns 65
on Thursday.

"I was going to go to the ranch to be with my grandkids," he added in the interview, as he returned to the US from Beijing....

Below is the sea surface temperatures of 1998. June 6, 1998 to be exact. So many media folks look to the red color to determine talking points. Le Nino, La Nina and all that mess.

Below is the sea surface temperatures from 2017. Kindly look not so much the red color, but, the blue and purple colors. In the southern hemisphere where there is an ice continent, Antarctica, differences of both images are discernible. Now mind you this is not one hundred years, not a millennium, but, simply 19 years, nearly two decades.

To the lower right in both images is the "Peninsula." The Antarctic Peninsula has lost considerable ice during that period of time. The loss of the Larsen Icesheets have been alarming during that period of time. The reason for the loss of those ice sheets is obvious to me. The WATERS of the circumpolar circulation caused the loss of the ice sheets. The waters in 19 years obviously have gotten warmer.

Warmer circumpolar water. The entire circumpolar is freezing. Make no doubt the waters are freezing, especially in an Austral winter. YET, in 19 years the waters have warmed enough to cause destruction of significant and important icesheets. That is serious. Very serious.

I want to look to the Arctic Ocean. The North Pole. Antarctica is the South Pole.

The frigid waters of the Arctic Ocean is descending to lower latitudes. Why? The ice of the ice ocean is melting and being carried further south. The ice of the Arctic Ocean is KNOWN to be melting. MELTING means there is a release of temperature. The Arctic Ocean is warmer today despite it being at the top of the world. The air water interface between the ICE CAPS and the tropospheric gases are resulting in far warmer waters. A warmer Pacific and a warmer Atlantic also contribute to the warmer circumpolar waters, however, the air is just as instrumental in melting the ice thermostat of Earth.

As a Secretary of State I fully expect, not his wife, but himself to bring about an end to the anthropogenic warming of Earth, "OUR COMMON HOME."

There is a charasmatic movement around the globe to empower radicals. It is dangerous and citizens need the tools to save their own lives.

To the left is a splint to hold a leg still while transporting to care. The point is bandanas are invaluable in FIRST AID (click here - this distributor sells them for 80 cents. I don't know the strength of the cloth - gender was not a consideration).

In the picture to the left is a good method of SECURING A TOURNIQUET. Once the bleeding is stopped the tourniquet has to be secured. The picture illustrates a way of securing a tourniquet TO SAVE A LIFE and stop the loss of fluid. 

One of the things noted in "First Aid Courses" (click here) is that tourniquets need to be opened to allow some circulation DEPENDING on the wound. It allows oxygenated blood to flow to the NORMAL TISSUES.

Tobias Ellwood, center, a Conservative member of Parliament and Foreign Office minister, helped an emergency services team attend to an injured person,

...One precursor to the tourniquet (click here) was the use of tight bandages placed proximal to the point of surgical amputation. Most commercially manufactured tourniquets are designed for quick application, usually within 60 seconds. A tourniquet replaces the need for direct pressure, additional bandages or a second care provider during transport....

AED's look differently depending on the manufacture. Like candy bars. Marathon Energy Bar (click here)  look different than a Hersey's Shareables (click here). No different with AEDs. They work the same but they look different depending on the manufacturer. The buttons that have to be pushed by laypersons should be standardized by manufacturers, but, that would require legislation and the current DC administration and congress haven't got a clue. Besides there are these invisible political rules that dictate no interference in private industry. Not that standardization would save lives or anything, right?

There are large vessels in all extremities (legs and arms), the neck and groin. Pressure on the neck and groin is needed to stop bleeding to facilitate a rescue. That pressure has to be significant enough to stop the bleeding.

It all depends on where the wound is and how much fluid is leaking out because of a hole in the body's "integrity." A fully intact body has 100 percent integrity. Burns and wounds changes that integrity. Wounds' leaking of fluid should be stopped as close to the wound as possible.

Civilized citizens of any country will recognize their need to be SMART about violence and/or tragedy in day to day life. 

Learning online or through a book is the beginning. Hands on application of SKILLS are best if time and money is available to citizens. Basic First Aid used to be taught in health classes in school. It is a good idea to bring that back. AEDs for high school students is now part of everyday life. They should be familiar with such devices. Younger people in primary school understands very well the human body is not perfect and can be injured when they fall or bump themselves in play. They will understand CARE can be applied SO THEY FEEL BETTER and THOSE AROUND THEM.

Civilized people are not stupid. They can learn laypersons' knowledge to save their life and the life of others.

Defeat attackers by ending the deaths.

Tobias Ellwood, (click here) a minister in the Foreign Office, tried to save the life of the stabbed police officer by giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, but the officer died.

Attackers act out violence against society because it accomplishes deaths. These injections should be available to the public as well as emergency personnel. Gun shots kill because of blood loss. CPR does not work when there is massive blood loss.

The average response time of emergency medical services are not instantaneous and fluid loss is vital to stop. If severe bleeding is occurring it has to be stopped first by tourniquet or such a device as this. The people know CPR and they know how to use AEDs, at least some of them do, but, on one focuses attention on fluid loss. CPR and AEDs will fail if there is severe blood loss.

Day 2

Humor laced theory is not a Supreme Court Justice.

I still don't know who "What's his name?" Is.

His past is what brought to this point. His past is how he is measured. The Supreme Court is not a reform movement. Gorsuck is being omterviewed for a promotion not a new country; although with Trump administration that is questionable.
