Many people choose to express their opinon on gun laws. While everyone is entitled to their opinion, most of these opinions are based on emotion and are not based on fact. Recent events in America have many liberal people clamoring for more gun laws. They believe that guns should be taken away from citizens and they hope that this will keep them safe from harm. What they fail to realize is that most gun violence is committed by criminals with illegal guns. They fail to see that these criminals do not pay attention to laws. For this reason, it is obvious that more laws will not protect people from gun violence.
The citizens of America that enjoy having guns point to the Second Amendment to the Constitution, that guarantees them the right to bear arms. Some anti-gun folks say that this only applies to muskets and the type of weaponry that was available during the day that the laws were created. They say that the founding fathers could not foresee assault weapons and other weaponry. They fail to realize that this amendment was created so that the citizens of the nation could protect themselves from tyranny. These founding fathers had recently overthrown a tyrannical government and knew a day would come when the government they were creating would need to be overthrown. For this reason, they explicitly stated that the citizens should be allowed to have arms in order to fight and defend themselves.
Another interesting fact about this debate is that the states with the strictest gun laws seem to have the most gun violence. The state of Vermont has very lax gun laws and has very little gun violence. You can even conceal and carry a gun in Vermont without a permit. Of course, if most people own guns and you never know who may be carrying a gun, you are less likely to commit crimes. Hopefully, the other states will follow the lead of Vermont and allow their citizens this basic right.

Everyone is entitled to their own political opinion, but there are times when you should keep it to yourself. If you are engaged in a healthy political debate with a group of people who follow current events and enjoy talking politics, you’re among a crowd where it’s safe and appropriate. However, if you are at a family gathering where strong political opinions tend to ignite fights and arguments, it might be best to keep your opinion to yourself.
Sharing your opinions in the workplace might not be a great idea either. Unless you work for a particular candidate or cause, you are likely to have a diverse workplace where everyone holds different opinions. If you get too emotionally involved in political issues at the workplace, you risk alienating people who feel differently, including your boss.
Social networking sites are a popular place to air political grievances. Statements, videos and news articles tend to go viral within minutes of being posted. You should feel free to share your opinions on Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms, just remember not to make things personal. If you are willing to post something inflammatory or controversial, you have to be prepared to hear from people who have opinions on all sides of the issue. Decide whether you are just sharing information or purposely provoking a debate.
When you have a strong political opinion and a bunch of facts to back up your opinion, you are probably anxious to share it with others. Just remember that some venues and audiences are more appropriate than others. Keep your opinions out of places where you will only cause harm, hurt feelings and fights. Enjoy political debates among people who are willing to talk about different sides of the issues, and remember that everyone is entitled to think whatever they want.

Obesity is an increasing health problem around the world and especially in America. In one recent study it was estimated that around 69 % of adult Americans are obese or overweight. The consequences of obesity in America include serious health problems, such as type 2 diabetes that is becoming increasingly common.
What Causes Obesity
Lack of exercise and the popularity of junk food are some typical causes of obesity in America. Many people’s lifestyle involves driving everywhere: driving to work, driving the kids to school and driving to the shop. Choosing to drive even short distances means that you get very little exercise naturally. Giving up the car at least for short trips, and walking or cycling instead, would be a great way to introduce some physical activity into your life. Physical exercise is necessary for losing weight and for preventing many health problems, such as back pain.
Obesity and Health Problems
Food portions in restaurants are often large. Today most restaurants serve bigger portions than before, and if there is a lot of food on the plate, it is easy to continue eating even after you are full. Junk food, processed food, ready meals and snacks are popular, and these contribute to the obesity problem. Fatty foods, foods full of sugar or salt, and foods made with artificial preservatives are common even in families. Children are becoming overweight or obese too, which creates health problems already in childhood.
Obesity in adults is connected to many health issues, such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and even some types of cancer. More children are being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes than before. Crash diets are not the solution, so the best way to prevent obesity is to choose a healthier diet every day and to do some physical exercise daily.

Losing weight is hard for the average person. The result is many of us spend a lot of time trying to find solutions that fit out lives, our fitness level, our discipline and even our pain threshold. But, with all the diet reviews out there, how do we really know who to trust? Luckily, there are some telltale signs, so look out for these the next time you are searching.
5 Things to Look for in Diet Reviews
1. Are the promoted eating habits healthy? Drastically reducing a food group, giving up solids, or sticking to one type of food is often a red flag since it cannot be sustained. Additionally, these types of diets will often lead to weight gain right after stopping.
2. Do the claims seem exaggerated and unsubstantiated? No diet can claim that drastic weight loss is a typical result of all participants. That said, be wary of anything guaranteeing a large amount of weight loss in a short amount of time, especially when no physical activity is included.
3. Can you find information elsewhere? If all the details come from affiliates, paid marketing and the diet’s blogs/sites then you should proceed with caution. These are often unregulated, and safety may not have been accessed.
4. Is the information on the product label sparse or vague? If the maker is secretive about what you are ingesting (especially in the case of pills, powders etc.) then it may not be a good idea. You have to know what you are using to know if it is safe, effective or worth the time and money.
5. Is the review paid for? People who share diet reviews for affiliate reasons often have no experience with the diets no matter what they claim. Reviews coming from actual users are often much better so look for forums or message boards as well.
