I am against Gun Control, but I see no need to have Assault Weapons in the private sector or 30-round clips. As somebody said , those have no use other than to kill People. I don't see banning those as Gun Control...I see it as Common Sense!
A ban on them was allowed to expire not too long ago, did you notice any difference when the Ban was in force, other than it seemed that we had fewer Mass Killings?
Isn't that the goal, to have fewer Mass Killings...and isn't that a small sacrifice to make if it stops even one Mass Killing?
You Wannabe Rambo-types can get your kicks with some other method of "pretend" killing to make you feel Macho!
I do'nt own a gun.Do you have a problen with your Drone killing King and his asault on the kids in other lands.He should be impeached but there is no one with the balls to do it.
I think it discusting how the King has his executive order to guard himself and family with armed guards and we foot the bill.How arrogant and self serving as usual.

Yep! Just proves how many Paranoid Freaks there are in this Country that MIGHT, I say MIGHT be capable of doing the same thing!

I'd also say that it makes a good case about why we might have a real need to ban Assault Weapons and huge Ammo Clips! What are the odds that all of these People are mentally stable and rational thinkers...not very good, would be my guess!

His responsibility is to protect the People in this Country and if you don't think that he and his family need to have alot of protection....and I'm not sure that he and his family have anymore than any other President has had, then, you just haven't paid attention to all the Death Threats that have been made and some ever tried, while he was campaigning the first time! Some of the Threats have been made right here on Topix, against him and his Family.
If you begrudge that, you must be saying that you wouldn't care enough about your Family to protect them, either. You're just a real Champ, aren't you? <s>

Folks, you need to read this Article. There are some payments mentioned in it , that the Gov't. makes each month, that I hadn't even thought of.
You want to know what your Tax Dollars go for, well here is a partial list...very partial, but surprising nevertheless.

In 1984 my wife were one of about 15 teams on a dedicated run that went from Port Huron, Mi. to Laredo Tx and back. I believe you said you worked for Chrysler. Then you should know about this. Our job was to pick up a load of engine blocks and heads fresh from the foundry. We transported these raw parts to Laredo where they were loaded on Mexican trucks and shipped to a town south of Mexico City(the name of the town escapes me) where the milling work was done on these heads and blocks. They were then brought back to Laredo and reloaded on to our trucks and we too them back to Port Huron. After arrival there these same parts were then reloaded onto Canadian trailers and transported to another small town in northern Ontario and there these engines were assembled then brought back to Port Huron where they were shipped to American plants to be installed in cars. This was cheaper than paying American Machinists and assemblers union wages to build these engines. This run went away when Chrysler started having the blocks forged in yet another country losing more American jobs. Now tell me how good the unions are for America. Union workers only care about how much they can get for themselves no matter what affect it will have on the overall economy. Union officials are do not care about the workers. They only want more members so they can get more dues to pay their 6 and 7 or more figure salaries.And if they cant get the money any other way they rob the pension fund.
Ya know "NTMD8OR", the more I read your post, the more I understand your position as a Republican that is so anti-union.
First you know for a fact, I never ever said that I worked for Chrsyler......this was said just to get your point out. Your point being; in this case was you were probably one of the first Republican/anti-union to outsource American jobs to Mexico, and you had no problem stuffing that cash in your pocket. You had no problem sleeping either.
Later this crude type of outsourcing, was later refined by a guy with the name of Willard Romney.

Here is what austerity advocates believe:
Problem: A world economy in deep recession.
Cause: A monetary crisis and a near collapse of the U.S. Banking system as a result of a housing bubble disaster.
Result: loss of demand for goods and services, the collapse of the value of real estate, high unemployment, falling consumer spending.
Solution: Take a trillion dollars a year out of the economy to balance the Federal Budget.
Ludicrious. The way to get out of a recession is to increase the monetary supply, not further constrain it.
We have a front row seat on austerity, as European countries spiral downward under a misguided effort to balance their budgets in a severe recession. It will take decades to undo what the E.U. has foisted on countries like Greece, Spain and Italy.
The time to address debt and deficits is when the business cycle is expanding, unemployment is low, wages are increasing,and consequently tax revenues are growing. That economy can stand cuts in government spending.
Unfortunately, when a robust economy returns if it ever does.....Republicans will want another tax cut instead of a balanced budget and paying off of the debt.
Spending (wasting) money that doesn't exist - other than when printed by the Fed out of thin air - is the CAUSE of debt! The 'front row' we are sitting in is one where we watch the abject failure of the Socialist-Democracy governmental model.

Big, bloated federal governments with Keynesian aspirations ALL are debt-ridden.

Again, the problem is debt -$17 trillion for us.
Cause - spending too much money
Keynesian response: spend more money

Quit trying to say that federal spending more is the answer. It simply does not work...Japan from the 1990's to now is an example; Europe presently is an example; and closer to home: Obama's $787 Billion "Spendulous"..er 'stimulus'- WHAT did it get us? Where are the jobs? Where is economic growth?

Here are the words of someone you may know concerning debt:

"The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents Ė#43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back ó$30,000 for every man, woman and child. Thatís irresponsible. Itís unpatriotic."

-Barack Hussein Obama, April - 2008

He lambasts Bush, et.al. for $4 trillion in debt added in 8 years - and he has added $8 trillion in 4...and plans ever and ever higher increases in spending - adding even more debt.

Interesting what the left will support. Would you be so enthusiastic about unilateral action and the Executive branch 'creating law' with no regard for the rest of the government if GWB were still in office?

Great post, but you are wrong about one thing: She doesn't THINK! This person has no intelligence whatsoever... can only copy and paste others.

You think all republicans are tea party members when in actuality, the Tea Party is a small minority in the Republican field.
You actually think for some reason that Fox News rules all the republicans. That is like saying The View rules all liberals. Republicans think on their own, not from what a tv entertainment channel says.
All of your posts contain at least one lie and many stupid comments.
You post links to blogs and editorial sites claiming them to be valid news articles and expect nobody to notice.
The fact is you could tax the wealthy 100% and you wouldn't get a dime of it and the country wouldn't benefit one iota from it. It might make you feel better, but the overall result would be nil.
You claim to possess all this extensive political information and have tons of experience in all things government related, yet you spend all your time posting on Topix. Here's a reality check for you, reading Topix posts all day gain you no knowledge and could basically cause you to go brain dead. Which we all already see the effects of.
Based on all these things, I doubt there is anyone reading your posts that actually think you are smart or wise. In fact, you give all the traits of some redneck woman that has been out of work a while and unmarried and mad at the world so you have to blame somebody other than yourself for your predicament.
If you are so adamant about changing things in the world, go out and do it instead of wasting every minute of your time calling everyone a Teapublican and stating Fox News is poisoning minds. You are simply not smart enough to sway anyone's opinion and the character you demonstrate on your posts doesn't earn you much respect. In other words, all this time you spend on Topix is simply in vain.

I would suggest that you read the Article before you start running off at the mouth and condemning something that you obviously haven't read!
And another thing, a Nation's economy thrives when money is in circulation...IN CIRCULATION...not sent to Iraq, not spent on 2 Wars, not hoarded by the Super wealthy, not stashed in Off-Shore Accounts to avoid being taxed, but IN CIRCULATION IN THIS COUNTRY!

When People don't have any money to spend or, in the Super Wealthy's case, either spent on other Countries or, invested in the Stock Market or, deposited in numerous Banks...the Economy suffers!
A NATION"S Healthy Economy REQUIRES that Money be IN CIRCULATION! It is not like your Household Finances! A NATION'S Economy and what it takes to make and keep it healthy is totally different than your Household Finances or your Business Finances, but People like you, just CANNOT get that through your thick heads!
MONEY MUST BE IN, AND KEPT IN CIRCULATION and the more money in curculation, the Healthier the Economy, PERIOD!

The Dems had the majority the first two years of obama and look what it got us, OBama Care. Do you really know how many taxes are in this bill?
Yep....we got a Republican healthcare solution created at the Heritage Foundation...and Republicans have been pi$$ing and moaning about it ever since.
Punch a few keys and check how much money has been wasted in the House on 20 some-odd votes to repeal it.
Democrats wanted single payer, Medicare for all. We got the Republican plan and we reluctantly accepted that. Republicans won the skirmish and have been acting like spoiled children ever since.
I know the tea party version of healthcare consists of two rules.
1 Don't get sick.
2 If you do get sick, refer to rule number 1.
Unfortunately, those without health coverage do get sick, and they suffer, and they die.
I have listened to the complaints about Obamacare until I am ashamed of some of my fellow Americans, who would put a few pennies of tax on their dollar above the value of a fellow American's life.

Yeah Sassy, I read some of the article, it also included a NRA Gun game for kids 4 years and up........when I was 4 I had a "cap gun" and I thought I was cool.
As far as MONEY IN CIRCULATION IN "THIS" COUNTRY, you are spot on. We need to get this money to all of the real small businesses(less than $250,000).

It obvious you never studied economics. When you run out of money do you quit buying until you get paid or do you just spend more because that will help you in the long run. Oh, you put it on a credit card so now your in debt. When you max out the card, you go bankrupt. What happens when you go bankrupt? Everybody loses if the country goes bankrupt and it is going in that direction.
How can a government which does not function on the gold standard run out of money ? How can a government that is not on the gold standard go bankrupt ? How can a government that has the world's reserve currency do either of the above ?
The answer is it can't. This is not 1970 you know.
I know enough about economics to know that government does not, nor has it ever functioned like a business....government is not a business.
What is obvious to me is that you have never studied history. The great depression ended because of government borrowing and spending on a massive scale.
We will soon see a complete turn around by Republicans on how government spending affects the economy.
I predict we will see Republican members of congress take to the floor and make the case that cuts in defense spending by government will be DEVASTATING to the American economy. This will show everyone what hypocrites they really are.
You can come back and remind me if I am wrong, but I won't hold my breath.
