<quoted text>According to Mr. Romney, IIRC,'you deserve the education you can afford'. It's all about priorities: do you 'save' for your kids' college educations, or do you spend what you would otherwise be saving to pay for their orthodontia and guitar lessons now?(Do you invest in your state's college savings plan, or that offered by your employer?) Do you pay close attention to your child's interests, and do your best to encourage them to pursue same, or do you 'decide' for your child that traditional higher education is the only option?
Parenting is not a cake walk, and kids are not gingerbread men.
No, it certainly is not. It's a misconception that affluence insures against the ills that befall our children. I don't know the stats but there have been quite a number of suicides by young people who one would say "but he had everything" as if that is the answer. Mental illness and depression have no boundaries; there are no magic wand cure alls for those that suffer from it and the prescribed anti depressants are experimentally handed out; see how this works for you, if not, try this etc and then sometimes they work and sometimes they backfire and make the person worse.
Personally I don't trust those meds and would advise other forms of getting well besides drugs.
Americans want instant solutions to everything, a happy pill if you're sad, a sleeping pill, diet pill, etc. I think people should excersise more and eat properly. I'm not discounting that clinical depression exists. Many people just abruptly stop taking them, often causing havoc in their minds.

You are touching on an excellent point. Our kids are exposed to violence at a very young age from watching TV and playing games.
The "Savior" Democrats however would "NEVER" go after their cash cow and buddies in Hollywood. The Democrats act as if violence in movies and on TV does not exist.
The Democrat is incapable of logic and seeing past the end of his nose. The Democrat is also lacking in principle and ethics. He ignores negative factors and implications if it suits his NAZI agenda. He even propagandizes news like the NAZI and fascist governments do.
Benghazi was a text book example.
How much violence do you think the average 'cave-child' was exposed to?

I'm thinking "QUITE A BIT" myself. Funny thing though, they didn't have political parties, because they had tribal councils...

We're still cavemen, Waxy. We just have iPhones and inter-continental ballistic missiles now.

The more things change, the more things stay the same, eh?

The NY Daily News, NYPost, NY Times, Daily Mail; all posted the same photo of the boy from a few years ago. The older brother said he had not seen his brother in 2 years, parents divorced in 2008, both parents educated and pretty well off, father remarried. Sounds like a nice family, the boy had either a personality disorder and or autism. Sad all the way around.

<quoted text>Gee Whiz Ben, what is your definition of a semi-automatic weapon? We'll give you time to look it up, if you don't know?
Definition: Semi-automatic guns are those which fire the round in the chamber, extract it, eject it, and load a new round into the chamber each time the trigger is pulled.
Revolvers and bolt action rifles take more time to fire and have less ammunition in the magazine. These characteristics do not restrict gun owners using guns for self defense but allow more potential victims to escape in attacks when used on unarmed citizens.
What's your point?

There is absolutely nothing in the 2nd amendment that gives average citizens the right to possess guns. Only the members of a well regulated militia, i.e the police and military, have the right to possess guns. 44.44% of Supreme Court members agree.

NBC’s Pete Williams reported Saturday on the Today Show that Adam Lanza was allegedly involved in an altercation at Sandy Hook Elementary School the day before the shooting.

Attempting to answer the question of why Lanza may have chosen this particular school, Williams stated that it has been confirmed now that Lanza’s mother did not work full-time at the school, despite previous reports. However, officials told NBC that on Thursday, December 13, Lanza was involved in an “altercation” at the school which involved himself and four other staff members. Of the four, three were murdered in yesterday’s shooting spree and the fourth is currently being interviewed by federal and state investigators.

Williams said though we still don’t know the “substance or nature” of the argument, the staff member’s testimony might be an “important piece of information” for discerning motive in this
case.

Nobody needs a revolver or bolt action rifle or any other gun in their home. Both the Sandy Hook shooter and the Portland Mall shooter stole their weapons from "law abiding gun owners". If the "law abiding gun owners" did not have guns in their homes, neither of these tragedies would have occurred. It's time for America to get rid of all these guns.

Our kids are not afraid to go to school because of the threat of gunmen. They're afraid to go to school because their teachers have no recourse to inter-class bullying, stultifying boredom, or mandatory curriculae. Their peers are time-bombs, their 'counselors' are bean-counters, their teachers are automatons, their Principals are giant walking feet of clay, and their parents are oblivious.

It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world.

The nation is sick due to the additives, preservatives, sugars and other poisons put in today's food by giant corporations like Mcdonalds.

Trust me - a coalition of 'average citizens' in my neck of the woods, will be a well-regulated militia in a matter of days, if not hours. We don't just own guns here, we practice using them. And if nothing else, the people on my block (there are 3 families) are a community. We know what it means to work together.

We're not afraid - we're circumspect, observant, and prepared.
