About Eddie

Bio

Ello, I'm an EMT-B from southern California. My name is Ed. And yes, I am semi nude in my profile picture.

An idea worth spreading

That we need to be colored blind. That we need so see past and learn form our differences. That skin tone is just melanin derived from genetics and not a way to divide us. That ones sexual preference doesn't lessen or make them better it simply makes them a human. That we should not argue wether we believe in Yahweh, Allāh, God, Buddha, or none of them. Wether that should simply except and learn these difference. Not become "tolerant" because tolerance is to endure one another we don't need tolerate one another. We to tolerate things that bug use or things we need to deal with. Instead I purpose we become informed of one another and respect each other. So that we can focus on progressing ourselves and make a better future. So from now on I don't want anyone to see me as just a black man or just an atheist. I want people to see me a s just a man.

I'm passionate about

Rights, for everyone no matter the race, sexuality, or religion. Imagination, curiosity and everything needed for a great idea.

Talk to me about

Anything, I'm open for debate, discussion, conversation or lecture. Being open makes me feel like I am ready to learn. And I like learning.

People don't know I'm good at

I have never great at anything in particular ,but I have an exceptional mind on learning new skills that won't be great at but descent at.

My TED story

Got addict to the videos.

Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law is unconstitutional and thus illegal
are you obliged to retreat when attacked? You're not obligated to retreat if attacked. Its Simple something you may perceive you as a threat you can take it down with any amount of force. is it ethical or not? It's not at least not in a country with a well trained police force like U.S. o we need to minimize "overall" harm, if such a thing exists at all? they're more than one way to defend yourself without killing

Actually most states in the U.S. require a permit a to carry hand gun but not all require a person to register the a gun. While I agree with Andrea that I'd rather have professional people with standards carrying a gun and make judgement calls ,but I also think that if a person is in a dangerous area with a high crime rate and tons of unsolved cases; should be able to carry weapon if its registered and permitted.

While agree I with you the mere presence of a weapon does increase the likely hood of violence. But the thing is almost every state in the U.S. has lower or higher gun control. The Law in question is in florida and a few other states. This is a disgusting law allowing people to become vigilantes and make any given situation. But it doesn't affect the U.S. society as a whole. But if the mere right to own a gun makes the U.S. a violent society by that logic Canada as well is violent society because they too have similar law to the U.S.'s second amendment. While firearm related homicide was 60.2% in 2009 and 32% in Canada. Are you still willing to claim that the mere right to ownership of weapons breeds a violent society?

That the U.S. my home is becoming more and more "Unconstitutional". That we keep making these laws that impede our rights and perverse the ideas that our country was founded on. And case hasn't made it to the Supreme Court its one the state level. It was taken out hands of local prosecutors and police hands to try and calm a racial unrest that it has caused. I figure the issue over (SYG) is that of one of gun control. This issues is one big one that divides the U.S. politically, some saying we need less gun control making it easier to get and own a gun, and others fighting for more gun control trying to make sure the wrong person can't get one.
