In our eleventh episode, Eric & Mike discuss ACTA protests overseas, states coining their own money, and cyber
defense. They also discuss the sixth and seventh sections of Article I. The Prep School lesson is about first aid.
ARTICLE I (SECTIONS 6-7) RESOURCES
The Senators and Representatives shall receive a compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law, and paid
out of the treasury of the United States. They shall in all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be
privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session of their respective Houses, and in going to and
returning from the same; and for any speech or debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other
place. (Speech or Debate Clause) – (Gravel-vs-US, ,408 US 606, 1972)
No Senator or Representative shall, during the time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil office under
the authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the emoluments whereof shall have been
increased during such time: and no person holding any office under the United States, shall be a member of either
House during his continuance in office.
All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur
with amendments as on other Bills.
Every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a law, be
presented to the President of the United States; if he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with
his objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the objections at large on their
journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the
bill, it shall be sent, together with the objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered,
and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a law. But in all such cases the votes of both Houses
shall be determined by yeas and nays, and the names of the persons voting for and against the bill shall be entered
on the journal of each House respectively. If any bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days
(Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a law, in like manner as if he had
signed it, unless the Congress by their adjournment prevent its return, in which case it shall not be a law.
First Aid Item Checklist
- Carrying case: Any type of case that you have around the house (even an old purse will do). I prefer to use a small
plastic toolbox. It's light and portable and won't cost you more than 5 to 6 dollars.
- Band-aids: include 12 to 18 band-aids of various sizes
- Adhesive Tape: Include 2 rolls of tape. 1 roll should be ½ inch and the other should be 1 inch.
- 4 X 4 gauze dressings: include 12 of these individually wrapped sterile pads.
- 2 X 2 gauze dressings: include 12 of these individually wrapped sterile dressings.
- 4 inch Roller Gauze (Kling): Include 4 rolls
- 3 inch Roller Gauze (Kling): Include 4 rolls
- 2 inch Roller Gauze (Kling): Include 4 rolls.
- Ace Bandage: Include 1 - 4 inch roll. This can be used for strains and sprains and also doubles as a pressure bandage
to control bleeding.
- Ice Packs: Include 2. These are used to help reduce swelling.
- Steri-Strips: 1 package. These are also known as Butter-Flys, Adhesive Sutures, Adhesive Closures.
- Betadine Antiseptic: 4 oz. bottle or 12 individually wrapped swabs.
- Neosporin/Bacitracin Ointment: 1 tube. This is a topical antibiotic.
- Cortisone Ointment: 1 tube. This is especially helpful with any contact dermatitis (i.e. poison ivy, oak)
- Benadryl tablets: 1 package, 24 tablets, 25mg/tablet. This is an over the counter antihistamine that will help
control allergic reactions(Be sure to read and dispense as per the directions on the package)
- Eye wash: 1 small vial. I prefer a normal saline wash, but any type will do (i.e. Visine, Clear eyes)
- Bandage scissors: 1 pair. Do not let your household scissors do double duty. These scissors are blunted and won't
inflict any further injury.
- Forceps: 1 pair disposable splinter forceps (Tweezers)
- Sutures. Learn how to suture a wound now. There are videos on the internet.
- Quik Clot: at least two packages. This will help stop heavy blood loss in the event of heavy trauma like a cut artery
or gun shot wound.
- Tourniquet. Also used for heavy blood loss. A tourniquet should be used only as a last resort measure to stop massive
Always include a good first aid manual in your kit. Also, print the telephone numbers to your fire department, police, poison control office, and your doctor on a label and affix it to the inside cover of your first-aid kit. That way they are always handy.
