In the wake of the Newtown, Ct. shootings, calls for more restrictive gun laws abound. All these are 'feel good' or 'see what I did' types of laws. None will prevent the tragedies that have occurred from happening again. These laws will only affect the law abiding citizen. What is the answer? I do not know. What I do know is that anybody who wants to kill somebody will find a way to do it and use whatever means it takes to do it. I do not recall these types of events happening during my youth. Rather than coddling our children, maybe a good spanking might eliminate these gruesome events from occurring again.

A look into the future...

8 years, Romney & Ryan. 8 years, Ryan & Rubio. 8 years, Rubio & ???. You get the idea. Hopefully by then Obama's just a bad memory.

Re: The Left

"As the country's first African-American president, Barack Obama had the chance to lead poor African-Americans out of poverty by encouraging them to embrace the principles that would allow them to become self-reliant instead of stoking envy of the successful. He had that responsibility. He has failed to live up to it. That is a tragedy, not only for him, but for those he left behind. Envy has never created a single job, put a family back together, encouraged a man to provide for his children or endowed young women with the kind of self-regard that would encourage them not to create children they too often neglect. The state of many poor African-Americans remains how it has been for years -- too many fatherless children, too many uneducated, hopeless women and too many men in prison. President Obama might have done something about that beyond more government programs and handouts. ... Addicting more and more people to government and the view that others owe them a living is the worst form of covetousness. In case the president missed it in Jeremiah Wright's church, there's a commandment against coveting your neighbor's property."

Let's be fair...

"The president says one thing and does another. He boasts of how the U.S. auto industry has rebounded, expresses concern for the middle class, and appeals for fairness. But his rhetoric is contradicted by how his Administration treated salaried retirees of auto parts maker Delphi Corp. in 2009. We're confident our two year old federal lawsuit (in which the government refuses to participate in the court-ordered Discovery) will prove that his Administration influenced the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation to unnecessarily seize our pension plan in 2009. Then, his Auto Task Force picked "winners and losers" by giving GM enough bailout money from taxpayers so the automaker can "top up" the lower government pensions being paid by the PBGC to union represented Delphi retirees but not salaried retirees. He thumbed his nose at middle class retirees like us in a process that was not only unfair, but also illegal. We can prove that no taxpayer monies are now needed to restore the pensions we earned."

This make sense. This rather brilliantly cuts
thru all the political doublespeak we get:

. U.S.Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
. Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000
. New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
. National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
. Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

*Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:

. Annual family income: $21,700
. Money the family spent: $38,200
. New debt on the credit card: $16,500
. Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
. Total budget cuts: $385

Got It ?????****

*OK now Lesson # 2:
Here's another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:
Let's say, You come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup
in your neighborhood...your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.

What do you think you should do?
Raise the ceilings, or pump out the shit?
