No, I just love common sense. Something we lost somewhere along the way.
Can you imagine early Americans mowing down people with assault rifles - even if they had them back then?
Those weapons are meant for wartime. What other purpose could they possibly serve in the hands of private citizens?
Let's just legalize rocket launchers.
Government is supposed to exercise common sense - which big government doesn't. It can't micromanage common sense.
Imagine it? I'm looking forward to it. I agree rocket launchers should be legalized as well.

Shouldn't those kind of weapons be banned in every state?
I kinda knew what they were, by the way. Just never understood why they were part of the second amendment if legal anywhere.
Absolutely not. The term is vague and ill defined. It could lead to all but single shot weapons. People who claim to want assault weapons banned are just ignorant of the weapons.

This fiscal cliff crap is way over-hyped.

Let's see the rich are in danger of losing their precious tax cuts and the media is controlled by the rich, hmmmmm

Let it happen put tax rates back to what they were during the Clinton administration and cut military spending.

Do it!

It's not going to throw us into a recession any more than the tax cuts for the rich help the economy.

Let it go already.

Don't know if this Topic has been discussed and haven't been on in approximately 2 weeks ( though I'm sure my "Screen Name" with the United States ISP has. demwit o'boyo & accomplice suki tawdry ).

24 States have now adopted "The Right To Work".
Legislation.

While Labor Unions once had a place and purpose in American Business: IE: Child Labor Laws, Safe working conditions and environment, they have out lived their usefulness. We now have Laws to oversee, regulate, protect the above mentioned.

Obama needs to stop sticking his nose into the rights and power of The State(s). Doesn't he have enough FEDERAL issues to take care of.

Course he's Campaigning for The Unions because they are a strong voter base; an arm of The Democratic Party.

He'll probably send his racist Attorney General, Eric Holder to claim this Right To Work Legislation is racist and discriminates and disenfranchises minorities.

The only people who have been discriminated against and disenfranchised by The Unions are those who want to work WITHOUT having to join a Union.

And once a Company/Business becomes Unionized, that Company/Business signs its decision making process over to The Union, ergo The Union is now running that Company/Business. Well, frig that.

The American Worker should have a choice.
The Democrats and its Unions, the party of the oxymoron "tolerance and diversity", don't want to extend CHOICE. Because The Unions want their cut, and The Democrats want their Vote.

This Legislation is fair. If a worker wants to join The Union, join. For those who don't, they no longer HAVE to. C'est la vie Unions.

Don't know WTH Union Members are protesting about.
They're not losing anything. Let The Unions compete in the open market. If the question were to be asked of one getting ready to go into, open a new Business or Company ~ If asked Union or Non, the answer would always be Non.

Choice was between the President Obama and Romney.
If you feel Romney was a good choice
nominate him again in 2016.
