Ok, here is the thing, when it comes to gun control and the entire debate, here is the thing: All rights in the bill of rights have limits. No right is unlimited; there is a line in the sand, which once crossed ceases to be protected. And when it comes to gun control, and the entire second amendment, the conversation needs to change.
There are parts of the country, programs and things that the other parts of modern day America, that we all enjoy that have a strong socialist background. And as much as many would say that they do not like such, the reality is that they would cry foul if they are not getting or benefitting from those programs, or the results of those programs.

I think that they need to tighten the controls on food stamps. And start to shrink where such can be used, to remove it from areas like say a convenience store.

The problem is that the way that such is determined is not realistic, nor does it paint an accurate picture of what a person really should be paid, for doing 8 hours of work. Many are looking at the fact that often those who are skilled and can not get a job in their chosen field, often end up having to take a basic job, but the pay is not there for them to be supporting and self sufficient.

While yes, it is almost 2019, however the policies, both public and private have not been updated. And while yes that the country has had its first black president, the issues that were there before, are still present, just now more in the light of day, and out of the darkness. Racism is still very much alive, well and kicking in the USA. And it is out in the open. I agree public housing is a trap. But until policies, like say the Red Line of a neighborhood, is changed, it will never get better, and will continue.

These people, the ones from Central America, seeking asylum in the USA, as much as many would not like, is a mess, that is from the US policy when it came to Latin America. It was a result of the economic, strategic and national security policy from years past, that is now catching up with the country. Should we just ignore it cause it is unpopular, or take responsibility for the mess, and work on fixing it and cleaning up the mess.

No, the statement about illegal immigrants is very much correct. Those who came to the new world, were never invited to be here, not by the native peoples, and when they got here, it devastated the population, the inhabitants here often kicked off of their land, swindled, killed and their way of life destroyed. And many of them later on, did not want to deal with the US government, and the broken treaties are still present. Funny you mention the jobs how people would go out and take them, yet there is no news on people making a bee line to say the agriculture area of the country, to harvest the food we eat. And most people I know don’t want to scrub a toilet.

The statement I made about Pro-choice stands, it is about controlling women. To make abortion illegal as many would want, would result in the loss of freedom and right that is present. And like painting a floor, the argument that is presented by those who are anti abortion, have no viable options. And the things that were mentioned, needs to be in the conversation.

The President set some lofty goals, and as much as new infrastructure, and even maned exploration to MARS, however, that requires professionals who are trained and know the advanced mathematics, and physics. Engineers, doctors, and other professionals who have the skills to make that happen. While I do agree about the trade schools, but those are too far and few between. And colleges far out number them. Those cost money and if the country is going to modernize and push back into the forefront of innovation, then such needs to be in the budget and that comes from the Taxes. However, if we look at the national budget, the country is not geared for that and that is what needs to be changed. Why are we supporting Israel again?

Yes, they do. The right to free speech does not include the right to yell the word "FIRE!" in a crowded theater... because doing so incites a panic that becomes physically dangerous for others. The right to freedom of religion has limits when it crosses the line into human sacrifice. The freedom of the press has (or at least used to have) a limit that forbad intentionally false reporting.... because that would be slander.

Gun control has a similar limit... when one pulls the trigger and harms another person without just cause.

And none of that justifies the removal of any gun rights. The line you speak of has already been firmly established in law. Murder is illegal. Anything more is an attempt to infringe the right, specifically prohibited by the Constitution. So if you want more gun control, amend the Constitution. That's how you change the conversation.


There are parts of the country, programs and things that the other parts of modern day America, that we all enjoy that have a strong socialist background. And as much as many would say that they do not like such, the reality is that they would cry foul if they are not getting or benefitting from those programs, or the results of those programs.

I stated as such.


While yes, it is almost 2019, however the policies, both public and private have not been updated.

Fine, then let's work to update them. Most of what you speak of is simple legislation which the Congress and President can change easily enough. However, change will not happen, cannot happen, never has happened, when one side demands the whole pie while the other side gets nothing.

Not everyone lives in the same socio-economic reality you do. When people realize that and accept it, maybe we can move forward. Not before.


And while yes that the country has had its first black president, the issues that were there before, are still present, just now more in the light of day, and out of the darkness. Racism is still very much alive, well and kicking in the USA. And it is out in the open.

Of course it is still alive. How do you get rid of a critter? Certainly not by feeding it. Every false accusation of racism is feeding it; every attempt to paint an entire group who have been free and equal under the law for so long, as helpless and indigent, is feeding it. That's what the laws do and that's what leftist policy does. During the 8 years of that first black President, people were told that a dispute with policy was racist, when it was obvious it was nothing of the sort. That is how you grow racism.


These people, the ones from Central America, seeking asylum in the USA...

... are not American citizens. They are also not seeking asylum. Asylum is fleeing government or widespread persecution for specific human rights, and wanting more money is not among them. We have a government that should look out for our interests... they have a government that should be looking out for their interests. If their government fails, it is not our government's place to take them in, unless you want our government to overthrow their country. I do not.


No, the statement about illegal immigrants is very much correct. Those who came to the new world, were never invited to be here, not by the native peoples, and when they got here, it devastated the population, the inhabitants here often kicked off of their land, swindled, killed and their way of life destroyed.

I proudly state, even though I take no advantage of the fact due to my lack of personal knowledge of the culture, that I am a descendant of those native Americans. The Trail of Tears runs within a few miles of my home. Do you not think I know about that? Do you not think I hang my head whenever I think about it, out of sorrow for a culture destroyed? Yet, I cannot bring it back. Neither can you. It is done. I see no wisdom... but much foolishness... in trying to do the same thing today to different groups, which is the end result of much of your proposals.


Funny you mention the jobs how people would go out and take them, yet there is no news on people making a bee line to say the agriculture area of the country, to harvest the food we eat. And most people I know don’t want to scrub a toilet.

The MSM does not determine reality, as much as they would like to. And whether one wants to do a job is irrelevant... I have worked at many jobs in my life that I did not want to do. Sacrifice is good for the soul.


The statement I made about Pro-choice stands

As does mine.

As to the trade schools, I never said we did not need white-collar professionals. I simply said not everyone wants to be a white-collar professional. That is a true statement; I have a son who is quite happy and very successful in blue-collar work. One is not exclusive of the other; we can have both trade skills and professionals... indeed, we need both in order to be economically viable. I can sit down and create marvelous things using prototype techniques, but that does not make them available to the masses; that requires people who can actually make the things I design in the quantities needed. A physicist needs room and equipment to work, as does a doctor. Those requirements require trade skills to make into reality.

The lack of schools you mention are a result of too much emphasis being placed on University education over the past time period. If we change our perspective on that, trade schools will increase. And none of that requires even a change to law... just a change in public attitude. Why not do the easy tasks first? Then we can see about the harder tasks.

The fool ignores a flat tire to concentrate on designing a more efficient motor.

Each to their own regarding firearms.

Thinking what happened to Oscar Pistorius, and I'm glad I don't have any.

But people in certain jobs or the farms, I'm for it.
