Fiscal Cliff

Well, falling off the fiscal cliff and having taxes go up and pin--pointed spending cuts automatically taking affect might hurt, but the alternative of doing nothing is going to bankrupt our country sooner or later. So, since congress can't rationally decide what to cut maybe automatic spending cuts is the way to go. It for sure doesn't look like congress is going to do their job and make the hard decisions that need to be made. Not by Democrats or Republicans.  (Dec 28, 2012 | post #1)

School Security

Congressional efforts to pass more gun control laws to ensure heightened security within our schools is not the answer. The answer is more armed security within the schools. Criminals don't abide by gun control laws anyway. In addition, limiting magazine capacity on weapons won't work either because a nut case, goofy enough to shoot children within a school, will only carry in more magazines along with their weapon(s). The answer is, even though we don't as a society want to admit it, is we will eventually have to post armed security guards within all the schools to ensure the safety of the children in the building. It's discouraging to know that we'll have to do this, but that's what our society has succumbed to.  (Dec 28, 2012 | post #1)

Marijuana - Richlands, NC

It would bring in much needed tax revenue into the state of North Carolina, and it could be regulated just like liquor. Marijuana, today, in our nation's history, is where liquor was during prohibition. We are wasting a ton of tax money keeping this vice illegal, even though a majority of Americans' consider it to be a benign vice.  (Nov 23, 2011 | post #6)

How would you balance the budget?

I can't understand how we can be financially hurting so bad here at home, yet we continue to give money to country's who's loyalty's to us are questionable to say the least---like Pakistan. There's no way, unless your completely naive, that anybody would believe that the Pakistanis, especially their intelligence service didn't know Osama Bin-laden was in their country. Come on, he built a (6) million dollar compound and they didn't know he was there. Ye, right! Balance some of the budget by foregoing giving money to country's that are not aligned with us as allies. For example: Pakistan, Egypt, Libya, and the Palestinians. Furthermore, we should stop funding the United Nations. Heck, half the member country's of the United nations could care less about America or its' needs. Why throw money at an organization that has done nothing to stop despots like Saddam Hussein, Venezuela's Chavez, or Iran's leader Ahmadinejad.  (Oct 7, 2011 | post #3)
