Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

When Right-To-Work Is Wrong and Un-Libertarian
"Employers own the wages they will pay and the sites where work will be performed under such contracts. So itís their right to dispense the wages and make the sites available specifically to union members, just as itís their right, more generally, to trade with anyone they choose.
When a legislature interferes with voluntary employment contracts, it infringes peopleís freedom to bargain with their own labor and possessions. Treating this kind of interference as acceptable means licensing arbitrary interventions into the market by politicians, who are ill-equipped to second-guess the decisions made by the real people making work agreements with one another."

"This is not to say that unions are always good. It means that, when the state isn't involved, they're private organizations that can offer value to their members. In fact, I found the NWU (and UAW) helpful for a while, primarily through the benefits the union offered and through the NWU's advocacy on the issue of electronic rights for written material at a time when the Web was first creating a host of new opportunities for writers and publishers alike. Eventually, the value of the benefits petered out for me, and then-union chief Jonathan Tasini's habit of veering into Albert Shanker-ish territory finally put me off enough to quit. But I can imagine re-joining a union under the right circumstances. I can also imagine resenting being forced into a union if I found out that it was a condition of employment in a desired job ó but I also chafe against drug tests, sensitivity training, and some of the other conditions I've encountered over the years."

I kinda had to feel for the kid in opotus the other day...growing up in a world of machevellian extremist government regime, could not have been all to pleasant for a kid at times.
As we may have witnessed briefly the other day.
"Suffer not the little children".....
When I saw the silently scrolling names of those children on my TV screen yesterday evening, I was reminded of something written 2000 years ago by one of the Ancients. Can't remember the name nor the exact quote as written but, if I may humbly try paraphrasing, it went something like this:

Life is full of tragedy but the most tragic of all is not sickness nor death and loss in battles. Although these are truly tragic, the supreme human pathos, the ultimate tragedy is that which could have been but never was.

Those kids could have been _______. Fill in the blank. They are paths not taken.

There is always a fly in the ointment, though. Someone telling jokes at a funeral. A drunk hitting on the bride. A war protester at a veteran's funeral. A President as Publicity Hound off the leash.

After seeing maybe 20 news reports on the Newtown tragedy, I found myself increasingly irritated with the Boy Messiah's face on my screen. I said aloud "This is about the children and their parents. The community's loss. It's not about you, you jerk!"

The Liberal media keeps plastering the airwaves of the Boy Messiah and I'm no longer watching the media. I can mourn in private without the Jerk-In-Chief interfering. STFU, Boy MEssiah!

The Democrats need to remain in control of people like you that aren't as fortuitous,or educated as they are.This is used as a tactical advantage to manipulate poor people with the Liberals and their clever guise of falsehoods,and promises of thngs like a great new Obama cell phone that can start your car if you need a jump start!

This is an exclusive part of the Democrat party;CRIMINALS!

4 dead heroes Obama refuses to acknowledge because he is the great WAR President that lead a ground pounding unit behind HIM with an extraction team!

Sure moron, this guy was armed with an assault rifle and wearing body armor. A civilian with a hand gun wouldn't stand much of a chance and would have more than likely hit more children. In August police min NYC who are trained and required to be regularly recertified with their weapons shot an armed man and in the process shot several bystanders.

No, talking about kids who appear odd to responsible adults.
With all due respect, that's a pretty vague and rather empty statement. It's also pretty assumptive to assume that all adults are "responsible" just because they are of supposed adult age in years.

Just look at this instance that's plastered all over the media now.

In a sense, they are, since so few people understand the disorder; and even fewer know the difference between it and the syndrome. But dang, it sure adds another layer to the story. Seems it doesn't matter anymore whether it's true or not...
And any one who has ever had any experience remotely, in even just knowing some one that may be afflicted with such, should realize, sudden outbreaks of violent behavior, is certainly not unheard of.

Kids fare far better when they're not spoon fed hearty supplies of sugar coated crap, on wholly dependent,
"other peoples hard work" and/or givverment enabled spoons. They learn to realize early on then, the givverment and OTHER peoples hard earned dollars, are NOT there for just their subsistance, there's NO such thing as trees that grow dollars or FWEE endless supplies of them and that the world does NOT owe them a living, but rather instead, opportunities to EARN it themselves.
NOt to say that we should just let people struggle themselves for the basis needs in life, but we do them NO favors, when we go beyond and create masses of the unrealistically dependendant, with unrealistic realities, as well as UNfair expectations of others.
IMHumbleO--Anyone who would like to try and say otherwise, should be viewed with great skeptisism, especially when using terms like "responsible adults" because "responsible adults" Know BETTER.

Sure Libtard. By your Libtard math, you think it's better to have 26 stone cold dead than to have people injured?

I prefer that they change the laws so people who have nutjobs in their house cannot have guns. These Democrats in the "rich, lily white Democrat town" knew their son had a mental disorder. Of course you dumb Democrats like the thread gun nut Old Raider don't like that because you have a higher percentage of mentally ill people on your side.

Oh well, at least Obama is going for a photo op on Monday, a good news cycle day. As President Axledrod said, never let a good disaster go to waste to further our agenda.

let's see...

26 dead to a couple of injured people? Hmmmm....

You are a complete and utter moron, dweeb!!!!!!!

Ever wonder why they call it poliTICS?(aside from the obvious given meaning).

Give me humble and realizing of ones own limitations of being merely human any day. To vault any one person to a position of some sort of all knowing "God-like" figure is in itself, sickening...almost have to feel sorry for opotus at other times too, because of some of that type of thing that has went on. How unfair (and WARPED) is THAT to any one person as well.

I hope the media (or politics) will not impose any further hurt, on those already suffering the worst hurt imaginable, imposed by someone else, and not anything of their own doings, and may they find some sort of comfort and strength in knowing that many indeed, truly mourn with them.

Even if you believe, as most Americans do, that the Second Amendment grants Americans the right to bear arms, one must also acknowledge the right of other Americans to not bear arms and be safe.

Where are the voices for those who choose not to ó or are not old enough to ó own guns? Are the gunless to have no advocate? Will our politicians forever cower before the gun lobby?
