Letters to the editor for aug. 11 space exploration, veterans, guns and more beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf

Within NASA, there is a subterranean internecine warfare between two groups who beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf have very different objectives that could cost american taxpayers vastly beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf different sums of money. One group are the scientists at the jet propulsion laboratory beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf in pasadena, california; the second group are the “space contractors” at houston and the kennedy space center. JPL is the group that has given us, among many others, the mars rovers, cassini, juno, new horizons and the james webb space telescope. All of these missions have produced an incredible amount of beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf science and knowledge regarding our universe and solar system in beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf comparison to the dearth of science obtained by manned space beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf missions, like the international space station, championed by the “space contractors,” and at a fraction of the cost. Then why, one should ask, does our government insist on going back to the moon beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf with manned flights, and then to mars? The answer is that, like the military-industrial complex, there is a space-industrial complex that lavishes politicians with what amounts to bribes beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf in order to fund these incredibly expensive manned space missions beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf that produce little in the way of actual scientific discovery.

I cannot understand the acceptance of trump by the active, former and retired military veterans. Here is a president who has draped himself in the beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf american flag, constantly lies and declared himself the greatest patriot of all beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf time. Trump didn’t serve in the military due to bone spurs (he cannot recall which foot), which appears to be fraudulent and paid for by his beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf father. Claims the bone spur X-ray is not available. Trump has declared he would have served if he “liked” the war. Really? He believes that standing for the national anthem is being beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf brave and a hero.

Trump’s mighty rhetoric is not bravery. Veterans are being asked to stand with him, but if we look to our left we see neo-nazis and to our right we see red-necked racists. The president attacked the late sen. John mccain for not being a hero. No, a hero is a man flying missions over north vietnam beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf dodging SAMS and not one trying to guess which foot beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf has the bone spurs.

Did veterans really serve our country for a president to beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf suggest if you disagree with him that “you can go home”? This is a racist’s statement! This man is terribly flawed, but I do admire the fact he knows his audience. Trump doesn’t think much of us (believes we’re stupid) and I can understand why. I have never seen a person who lies about everything beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf and yet vets adore him. Before some trump worshiper attacks me as being unpatriotic, I served as an army pilot in vietnam and was beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf recalled to duty in desert storm in saudi arabia. Imagine the president, donald jr. Or eric serving like you and I. Never happen!

Mr. Will chiles’ letter: "to the people of the buckle of the bible belt" apparently has one purpose, to use the bible against the christian community seeking to beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf shaming us into being receptive to the millions of illegal beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf aliens crossing our southern border. This argument has now become a common ploy attempting to beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf persuade and deceive christians. Even the title seems sarcastic.

Only one person, jesus, was in danger because he was born a king, a threat to king herod. Wise men from the east had just presented wealth to beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf this poor family that lived in a town far from beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf friends and family. An angel commanded them to flee to egypt until herod beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf died, after which they returned to their hometown. So you see, it is not a parallel to contemporary issues.

In reference to the july 30, 2019 article, “new building codes proposed,” there were some significant details left out. The 2018 international residential and commercial construction codes are an beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf important improvement over the outdated 2006 and 2012 codes the beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf city of springfield is currently using. According to the midwest energy efficiency alliance, funded by the U.S. Department of energy, a home built to the requirements of the 2018 code beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf will use 20% less energy and save homeowners $408 per year in energy costs for a 2,400-square-foot home compared to the 2006 code. Incremental costs are below $2,000 and the payback period would be about 4 years. These figures are specifically calculated for the springfield area, taking into account the cost of building materials, HVAC and appliances. Commercial buildings would use about 14% less energy on average. Homes and buildings would be more resilient to extreme weather beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf conditions, more comfortable temperature-wise, provide healthy indoor air and be affordable to heat and beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf cool over the long term.

The home builders association has drafted an alternative proposal which beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf rolls back wall and ceiling insulation from current required thickness. Insulation is one of the least expensive ways to seal beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf a house from outside air infiltration. It is very expensive to install after a home is beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf built. The HBA has eliminated the blower door and duct leakage beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf tests which are critical assessments of the tightness of the beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf building’s envelope. Visual inspections are not adequate to detect air leakage or beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf infiltration. The HBA has reduced the quality of windows and lighting beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf requirements of the 2018 code, both significant in reducing energy use. The building services department has, for the most part, accepted the HBA’s gutted draft proposal while ignoring the many local voices, including builders, landlords, the drury university architecture department, the O’reilly corporation, sun solar, the U.S. Green building chapter, MSU green student alliance, the white river group of the missouri sierra club and beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf others, advocating for adoption of the full, unamended 2018 codes.

The city of st. Louis has adopted the full 2018 codes, and columbia is set to do the same. The entire state of illinois has adopted the full 2018 beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf code. The trend throughout the country is to use the latest beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf materials and technology in constructing homes and buildings to reduce beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf the use of fossil fuels. The city of springfield has required that its buildings be beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) certified. It follows that springfield residents should be able to purchase beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf a new home, rent an apartment or new building with the confidence that beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf utility bills will be affordable, the indoor air quality healthy and the inside temperature uniformly beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf comfortable. One of the single most common reasons for foreclosures on beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf homes is excessive utility costs.

I don’t agree that it is a constitutional right to own beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf any weapon that can be manufactured. When the second amendment was ratified in 1791, muskets were the firearms of choice. There was no standing army and little law enforcement, thus, in a crisis, people were expected to respond in a “well organized militia” bearing arms, as the state would not supply weapons. The second amendment certainly did not anticipate rifles that can beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf mow down 30 people in 30 seconds. Freedoms of speech, religion, etc. All have legislation that refines and clarifies them. But not the second amendment. The republican political silence after every single mass shooting is beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf deafening. Our leaders may voice platitudes, but they have legislated absolutely nothing regarding gun control, background checks or gun safety for 25 years despite the beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf increasing frequency and severity of gun violence and mass killings.

Our president wants us to fear the caravans, as immigrants are “murderers and rapists.” not one politician spoke against his statement that “only in the panhandle” can people “shoot” immigrants. In fact, most of trump’s audience laughed at that statement. It is certainly not a joke to continually vilify a beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf group of people. Some mass shooters have even used trump’s words in their manifestos. Our citizenry and politicians accept and often think it is beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf funny that our president repeatedly fans the flames of fear beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf for political gain. I find this distressing, especially as it is easy to move from fear to beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf hate.

In 2015, 13 U.S. Senators took the time to write ezpawn of texas, missouri-based bass pro shops and nebraska’s cabela’s. (bass pro shops acquired cabela’s in 2017 for $4.5 billion.) the senators asked the retailers to voluntarily close brady law beck’s anxiety inventory test pdf loopholes in gun sales. They noted that walmart voluntarily closed the loophole in 2002. To this day, the U.S. Senators never received a response to their letter.

What kind of gun owner does the three-day check in the brady law attempt to block? Firearm sales for anyone who has: spent year-plus in prison, a domestic violence conviction or restraining order, or is a fugitive from justice, known drug addict, commitment to mental institution, foreigner without documentation, soldier dishonorably discharged from military or a felon.
