That more regulations from the Commucrats is going to save lives? News Flash, criminals don't give a damn about any laws, hence the word "criminals."
More extensive background checks will do what, make it harder for law abiding citizens to obtain a gun? Criminals don't subject themselves to background checks.
Banning the sell of online ammunition will do what, make it harder for law abiding citizens to obtain ammunition? Criminals don't buy ammunition online, it leaves a paper trail, they pay cash.
We don't need more of your communist govt, we need for the govt to stay the hell out the way and worry about things like, I don't know, say...the economy, the debt, the budget, just to name a few.
Even statistics from the FBI proves gun control laws do not deter crimes committed by firearms.
Commucrats = the blame someone else party
If you are a law abiding citizen, wouldn't that mean you are not a criminal and that you obey the law? If you are law abiding then you will have no background. So what is the worry?

Yes. No worries for me personally but why would you want more ineffective govt regulations? To make you "feel" better? Law abiding citizens who can obtain a permit now would also be able to obtain one with stricter laws but the criminals don't use the process anyways, so why increase them? You assume by passing stricter laws that it will deter crime but according to the FBI, it doesn't. It's been tried before, it doesn't work. As much as I hate the tragedies that have happened, there is no way to prevent them! None, zero, nada! There is no way to identify a criminal before he commits a crime for the first time, it's impossible.

Couldn't the same argument be used for voter registration? I don't understand how showing an ID, not even having a background check is considered discrimination; however, if you want to buy a gun, you have to give information, even your medical information and just maybe you can own a gun. I'm not talking about an assault weapon or whatever everybody is up in arms about. I'm talking about a gun, one for protection because criminals can get their guns illegally and some people do like to feel like they have at least some way to level the playing ground.
You can use the argument that voting doesn't kill people, but my argument is, make everyone have an ID and background check for everything or don't require one at all.

Tax all income equally. That means capital gains taxes .
I don't like the idea either, but if we get serious about payig off debt, that is what is will really take.

Because the top earners DON'T PAY INCOME TAX, they pay capital gains tax, and the few who do pay an income tax pass their tax obligations on to the middle class by incorporating them into the cost of the goods and services that they provide!

Well, I HAVE seen the grade inflation for children in private schools whose parents were significant donors to the administrators of the private school. I HAVE seen private school administrators pressure teachers to inflate grades of certain students. So I know it happens, frequently. Perhaps your daughter is intelligent enought to not need help,as evidenced by her subsequent achievements, and that is a good thing.
Do not lecture me about hard work. I also worked two jobs to pay for my OWN education WHILE I was in college. I was taught to work at an early age and learned to take pride in my work and my ability to do a good job.
No, republikans are not completely responsible for failures in education. But their anti education attitude is one of the biggest contributing factors.

TSF, what I have learned that is accurate is that if you want to accuse someone of something, come right out and say it. Stop pussyfooting around. Don't insinuate to me about what I did or didn't do especially when it comes to what I consider stealing. I would never ask a teacher or anyone to give my child or me something we didn't work for, that includes school grades. That's what's wrong with our society, everyone is not a winner, everyone is not the smartest, can run the fastest or jump the highest but we don't want to hurt anyone's little ego, so we give them something they don't deserve. I don't play that way, nor was I raised that way and you didn't step on my toes, you made me mad as hell insinuating that I would ask for my child to given ANYTHING she didn't deserve. No, I didn't see it happen frequently in private school. I didn't make a habit of going around to see what child was doing what in school. I worked two jobs to send my daughter to private school and didn't spend time on the gossip mill worried about inane issues of other children that I didn't have the time for and wasn't my business. Yes, I have a college degree and I worked my butt off to get it and I promise you, I didn't get any grade I didn't deserve, to include my "you'll never be a math genius, so move onto another field of science because your math grades show it."
Yes, while I know everything is multi-factorial, apparently you don't. You cannot claim/imply that today's failure in education is soley dependent upon Republicans hating education. You have pointed out all the other "factors" but for some reason, you have a real beef with Republicans and education. You scoff and scorn at those of who have gotten an education, paid for our children to be educated and done what we're suppose to do as parents to provide a solid foundation educationally for our children. Then you ramp it up a notch by basically calling me a liar or a thief about grades in school for my child. I've always been respectful to you and for you to attack me in such a childish way is beyond me.

Blame is different from the truth. The majority of that 16 trillion debt that concerns you so much, as it does me also, was already present ($10 trillion) in 2009. Another almost $2 trillion of the 16 went for INTEREST on the origional $10 trillion.
Remember when Cheany said "debt does't matter"? Turns out that it does matter. At this point , it does not matter WHO is to blame.
What matters is how we can still fix it. The only way is to RAISE taxes and SLASH spending. It will be unpleasant for all of us. The alternative is to just continue the party like there is no future and there won't be.

<quoted text>
I don't know how you were privy to information about students' grades and I don't know why you would want to know about children and their grades if they weren't your children. I would have to question the private school you got such information from and why they would give out such information.
Since you apparently know so much about children with inflated grades, during your snooping did you find out how they did on the SAT and what colleges if any they attended? I don't think there's a way to inflate SAT scores and right there is where the proof is in the pudding. I didn't contribute a penny more than the cost of my daughter's tuition because a private school, college, etc should be run like a business and if a business has to pressure people to be donors in order to keep their business afloat, they shouldn't be in business. I would hate to think my business depended upon "donors", instead we go old school and charge people for the service provided. It may sound simple, but it works for us, it should work for every other business. We're not running a charity, we're running a business therefore "donations" while the concept would be great, just isn't our way.
Speaking of my daughter, UNC Chapel Hill is not in the habit of accepting or teaching students in the medical field based off "inflated" private school grades. Have you heard of MCAT? Well that pretty much weeds out the "inflated grades of any students" and they go on from there and my daughter after testing proved she was "perhaps intelligent enough". Let me guess, you know someone who had inflated MCAT grades?

You obviously don't understand how the economy works. If you taxed capital gains at 94% who do you think would invest their money...nobody! The average annual return is only about 9.6% and if the govt takes 9.02%(94%) of that 9.6%, leaving a profit of .58%, who in their right mind would take the risk? With nobody investing their would be no retirement/pension plans. Since most businesses only make a small profit margin, without investors the cost of goods and services would skyrocket, making most everything either unaffordable or would cause companies to go bankrupt. 94% may have worked in 1954 because it was a different time and era, we didn't have all of the leftist social programs that are draining the govt of every penny! Studies show if you taxed EVERYONE 100% on EVERYTHING, the revenue wouldn't even run our govt for 6 months! WE DON'T HAVE A REVENUE PROBLEM, WE HAVE A SPENDING PROBLEM!!!!!
