Lets see here. Four Americans are killed and the next day the President describes the event as a terrorist act. If someone commits a terrorist act, one could safely assume that person to be a terrorist. So Bacon, here is test question #2. The persons who killed the four Americans would be (a.) girl scouts (b) your vicious mother (c) terrorists (d) Jehovah witnesses
Last year my operational budget was lean because outstanding accounts were not being promptly paid. One crew foremen was begging for a new truck because he claimed the old one was getting dangerous. I had the money to buy the truck, but because my operational budget was so lean and I had no way of knowing what unexpected other expense might occur, I didn't buy the new truck.
That management decision is reasonable if I think the old truck is not an excessive traffic hazard.
Since Ms Lamb could not personally keep the money, why do you think she did not spend it without hesitation? Could it be because republikans has just slashed the budget and she was being cautious with available funds?

TSF, the Republicans didn't meander into the Rose Garden and give the speech, Obama did. He didn't have the facts straight, nor did Hillary and they ended up with egg on their face. He and Hillary were still apologizing for a stupid you tube video by an American two weeks after the fact. You're still dodging the fact that Ms. Lamb clearly stated funding was there for the consulate in Benghazi, although funding across the board had been cut. It doesn't matter if the Republicans cut funding, that was a non-issue in this case, she didn't give them the money they needed and it was there. Who cut funding would have been an issue if Ms. Lamb didn't have funds, but she did, but chose to withhold them. Republicans didn't make up her words at the senate hearing, she owned it, they didn't make up Susan Rice's lies, Hillary's or Obama's. For God's sake, their words can even be found on videos on mainstream media, which is not exactly a Republican bastion.

So, in your view, Your own children are denied freedom of speech and cannot express an opinion that is different than yours? Their indiviuality is never encouraged? If they do express a different view, do you send them to the tundra region of your house, demand slave labor and food deprivation?
Arnold, we raised our children in a different time and we were raised in a different time than our children were. I agree with Silver on the fact that parents should be parents, and not your BFF. When raising my daughter, we discussed far more things than I did with my parents. I still drew the line on her individuality when my money paid for what I didn't like. At about 13-15 when "hoe clothes", you know the tighter the better, the lower cut the better and the shorter the skirts, dresses or shorts was her idea of individuality, I nixed the idea and the money to buy such. I raised her to respect her body and if you had to get a guy to look at you by how much flesh you were showing, you didn't need him and I know why he wanted you. I didn't necessarily embrace her idea of looking cool was a cigarette hanging out of her mouth at age 15 and I caught her expressing her individuality one time looking like hooker with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth and nixed that little "freedom." She had the freedom to say she didn't agree with me about curfew time, but when she was driving my car and I was paying for the upkeep of the car and gas, I felt like my freedom of speech trumped her's. She didn't have the freedom to disrespect her elders, whether she agreed or not, what could a 16 year old tell a 75 year old about life the 75 year old didn't know? We discussed religion, politics, school her goals and I listened to her opinions. I didn't always agree with them, told her as much, allowed her to respectfully tell me why she didn't agree with me, but as long as she lived in my house, she would follow my rules and when she felt she couldn't, she knew not to let the door hit her in the butt on the way out. I couldn't control her opinions or mind, but I could control who was the parent and who was the child under my roof. I didn't rob her of her opinions, but I did rob her of being the parent when she was the child. Did I do everything right as a parent, no, but I did pretty good with my daughter and she has grown into a productive, caring, respectful, law abiding citizen and I couldn't be more proud. She looks back and laughs now at her "goth" days. I took all her "goth" gear, given to her by friends because I wouldn't buy that stuff and threw it away. I took the freedom of her looking like Elvira with a cig hanging out of her mouth away from her. Never apologized, never will. I did what I felt was best. As parents that's all we can do and hope for the best.

When they were living at home, yes. They were not entitled to an opinion or "freely express" themselves. Katie and I were and still are of the opinion that our kids are exactly that, our kids. Not our friends.
Now that all four are grown, both of our daughters are married, our eldest boy just got engaged and our youngest boy is almost done with college, they are all quite capable of being able to forumlate their own opinions.
We taught them well and have no complaints. Which is the biggest reason why Katie is on board 100% with going to Singapore. Her one and only concern, obviously, were the kiddos.
Ditto with my parents. Under their roof I could speak out, but it was still their way or the highway. I wore the clothes they bought me, then when I started working, I got to buy my own. I think most families I grew up around did the same.

On your test question, you left out my mother-in-law and I believe we could have had a winner. She was a terror, so I guess that would make her a terrorist.
Gotta throw the BS flag on Ms. Lamb keeping the money due to being cautious. When there were numerous, you're the numbers guy, you know more than ONE email, asking for more security in a very volatile part of the world politically and pissed at the U.S., do you not think Ms. Lamb could have been a little less prudent about doling out some money for security? It's not like he was in Canada or Bermuda, he was in a country where we killed their beloved leader Gadaffi(? sp). TSF, please don't try to make excuses for Ms. Lamb and her disregard for the numerous requests for increased security. Again, the Republicans cut the budget, not completely and by her own admission, the money was there to increase security. I know she didn't get to keep the money. I can't wrap my head around why of all places in the world she would decided to pull a Hillary and say literally "The buck stops with me." Scrimp a little on security in Bermuda, Canada, British Virgin Islands, Bahamas etc, but not countries our country killed their "beloved leader", who years before he died whipped them into a frenzy to hate Americans, and basically gave us the finger and wonder why they attacked the consulate. Why this lady didn't take off the tinfoil hat and put 2+2 together, I'll never know. Is this best we can find in Washington to be a controller of money that doesn't understand the dynamics of how volatile we are with countries we've angered? The man didn't say he need someone to come trim the yard, clean the pool, and pick up groceries, he stated emphatically he needed more security, you know protection??

First off I am a democrat who has never received an entitlement. Second, I agree with your second statement. Third, here is a message that's not private: How about you call the number for me an tell that idiot on the other end, that he can take a number and get in line to kiss my a$$ right behind you.

I would say that is a pretty clear statement with no need for further explanation.

It was not until 2012 that Delaware became the first state to adopt the emerging nonviolent European model and pass a statute defining “physical injury” to a child to include "any impairment of physical condition or pain."[15]
Main articles: Discipline in Sudbury Model Democratic Schools and Sudbury Valley School
Sudbury model democratic schools, attended by children ages 4 to 19, claim that popularly-based authority can maintain order more effectively than dictatorial authority for governments and schools alike.
Furthermore they emphasize that much more important than the externals of order is the question of the sources of internal discipline: how does an individual come to develop the inner strength and character that endows his life with order and coherence, an independent person appropriate to a free republic of co-equal citizens, capable of making decisions within a rational, self-consistent framework—a person treating and being treated with respect?
They affirm that the hallmark of the independent person is the ability to bear responsibility and since there is no way of teaching or training another person for self-sufficiency, there is no technique for obtaining or transmitting these traits. Hence, the only way a person becomes responsible for himself is for him to be responsible for himself, with no reservation or qualifications. Thence the need to permit children, at home and school, freedom of choice, freedom of action, and freedom to bear the results of action—the three great freedoms that constitute personal responsibility.[36][37][38]

Bacon I agree with you 100% here. You said, "We discussed religion, politics, school, her goals and I listened to her opinions." This statement sums it up. These are the things that they should be allowed to voice opinions on. I don't think anyone here believes that laws should be passed based upon the opinions of children.

It would be my guess that Silver carries a different view about the free family discussion and opposing viewpoints to his agenda. He is a dictator and control freak.

Obviously, in retrospect, she should have spent the money and sent more security. One would hope that if republikans had known in advance , they would not have cut the budget either. Reality is that the budget cuts were an important factor in all this. When one gets budget cuts, that tells you that you have to cut back on spending somewhere if you want to keep your job. The woman admitted fault and fell on her sword. Hopefully, she has been fired.
But none of that excuses republikans siding with the terrorist and blaming Americans for something that the terrorist did. Aiding and abetting the enemy by making a circus of the tragic deaths of our military security personnel was a dispicable act by republikans trying to get votes. It didn't work and it serves no useful purpose now other than encouraging our enemies to repeat the act somewhere else . It just doesn't make sense.

For instance, do you think Silver would allow a child of his to like any black artist and express that love in their taste of music? Would Silver allow his child to read any political material that disagrees with his point of view?
