School employees are not federal employees. They are employees of the local school system, administered by a local school board.
Fair enough. There is a slight difference. They get paid by federal money so I conencted the dots that way but it's technically state government
Make no mistake, they are public employees. The same rules and regulations apply.

I really don’t think you understand how business works. One companies can’t afford to give unskilled workers livable wages. Second you’re not supposed to be making livable wages working at McDonald’s. I worked at Target for a bit at 9 bucks an hour in no way did I believe my work is worth 15 bucks an hr sorry. Companies pay for what they need. Unskilled workers ain’t one

Exactly East couldn’t have said it better myself. That’s something neo cons don’t get you can’t fix a region of the world that can’t handle freedom. They need to want it

Why do you think I put offensive in quotation marks? And why do you assume I’m a racist. You know what they say about assuming it makes an ASS out of yoU and ME.

F the EPA. His little pond in no way effects public health. It’s just more strong armed tyranny. And they have the Gaul to do all this when they crapped all over Colorado with that mess
I agree.. why aren't they being fined billions for releasing millions of gallons of heavy metals into the river. Does anyone realize how many people were affected by that. I wrote to my Senator and demanded that the EPA be held accountable! The EPA has outlived their usefullness!
Its not just the constitutionality, its that the EPA acts without any laws passed by congress.
The EPA has a mandate over large bodies of water and "navigatable rivers". Ponds are way beyond their mandate as passed by law.
The Utopian dream of progs control of everything we do. This bunch of hitlers is way out of control and we need someone in office who is not sold out to the enviro wacko's

They stray more into politics than they should. Schillings original tweet wasn’t incorrect anyway just “offensive”
DLV/ How was it offensive? He simply pointed out that a small number of evil people can take control of their entire population. If in your racist mind you choose to think he compared all Muslims to Nazi's, thats a problem with how you hear things, not with what was said.
Why was it offensive ? Because it's true ?

I know appalling right. Thia goes to show the bible correct when it says people’s minds and hearts are desperately wicked.
watch, out DLV.
that statement, on it's own, looks a little heretical ;)

I’m not a fan of a national gun registry becuase I don’t trust the government. Perhaps a private registry? It’s certainly worth coming up with solutions because if I was a gun seller. I would feel awful if a criminal got my gun and shot someone. This is worth brainstorming. Fact is background checks are used for a lot of stuff and I don’t see an issue with conducting on everyone trying to get a gun it just shouldn’t be difficult if you pass said background check.
Native- a background check doesn’t infringe on any rights. Don’t exaggerate for effect. Infringing on rights would be preventing law abiding citizens from getting guns.
Lloyd- no one who keeps the law all their life becomes a criminal over a waiting period. And I’m not even for a waiting period honestly because it’s not necessary if you pass a check. You may need a gun asap for fear of your life. You are also exaggerating for effect.
I can tell you this criminals getting guns legally and doing nothing about it is not a solution. Think harder

How in the bloody hell are any of those three winning against trump or Carson or Cruz. One is a socialist, one is an insane liar and the other is a complete fool. Really?!?!
 August 27, 2015 at 9:28am
I’m fine with basic background checks to make sure it’s harder for criminals to get guns legally. Background checks are performed by everyone. Banks do background checks on a person to see if they can afford a loan. Hell dads probably check somewhat on their daughters boyfriends haha. What I’m not ok with is making it difficult for law abiding people to get guns
Well, most states already make it difficult for people to get guns. Any assaults on the 2ndA are racist, sexist, and homophobic. So it's good to see the leftist toads for what they really are.
As long as we don't discuss illegals and gangs, but continue to bash law abiding tax payers, the progs keep on keeping on.
How would you accomplish this without a national gun registry? Assuming you are talking about Background checks for individuals selling to individuals?
DLV, do you really think criminals are going to be affected by background checks ? If so you are foolish indeed. Background checks are just a baby step down a slippery slope. Anti-gun people are very patient. It is like the frog in the pan, then the fire is turned on and the water slowly gets hot and the frog gets cooked. SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. Where have you heard those words before DLV.
The Simpsons, from "The Cartridge Family" episode:
HOMER [at a gun store]
Oh, I don’t need anything like that… yet… Just give me my gun.
(He tries to take the gun.)
I’m sorry, but the law requires a five-day waiting period. We’ve got to run a background check.
Five days? But I’m mad now! I’d kill you if I had my gun.
Homer was a perfectly law-abiding citizen. He had no criminal record. He was also, of course, a cartoon character, but I wonder how many scenes like this play out every day with real "law-abiding citizens" who actually become criminals in virtue of too-easy access to guns?

Do you think a background check would have stopped this guy?
A private registry would be just as bad as a goverenment registry.
For one thing liberals would either take it over or start their own and then use it against conservatives and anyone else who they decided was their political enemies.
"I can tell you this criminals getting guns legally and doing nothing about it is not a solution. Think harder"
So- should we have background checks for potential martial arts students to see who is a bully to ban them from learning to be worse bullies who could more easily hurt and/or kill their intended victims?
Who gets to define; Law Abiding People? Or, redefine it, as the case may be?
Lloyd that was well put, and I fear your 1A has caused criminals to act. If we had a 6 month wait on your posts, it would have to save some chillrens.
A private registry won’t work.
The government would need access to the registry to enforce a BC law, which defeats the purpose of it being in the private sector.
On top of that, what would stop them from saying “hand over the registry?”
And how would background checks stop a criminal selling a stolen gun to another criminal?
The problem is that common sense gets dumped when the government gets involved. Banks were forced to make loans to people who couldn't afford a house.
I was subjected to a background check when I purchased each (yes, several) handguns and I have no problem with that.
I am against, however, the reporting of depression issues that prevent a person from buying a gun IF THE DRUGS ARE WORKING. Just because someone needed help, or still needs a drug or might need help shouldn't be reason to ban them.
A watch list needs to be set up where a doctor can place a person on the list when they are dangerous and then remove them from the list when they aren't anymore.
The watch list would prevent them from buying a gun before a review. If a psych. doctor reviews them and gives the OK then take them off the list.
So is the whole 'waiting period' thing a state by state issue? I live in Missouri and when I went to buy my first handgun ever a few years ago (I grew up with and always bought rifles before), I picked it out, filled out the paperwork, and they just did some kind of electronic verification thing. I walked out the door with my new handgun from a well-known store. Nothing shady about it.
I know that everything here has been moved to records being kept at the Sheriff's offices which may be a difference too I don't know.
Background checks are de facto gun registration. If everyone was packing, as it is very citizens duty to do, then no background checks would be needed, dirtbags would be more hesitant and when they do attack everyone will be able to put them down
So no national gun registry, but you many of you support a mandated e-verify system. Lets pick and choose what liberties we're ok with tossing out.
What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you get? Not so long ago, when felons were released from prison they got back their horse, gun, and a few bucks and were okay so long as they didn't do anything else illegal going forward. Our Constitution also makes it illegal to create any "privileged class", which is exactly what any and all licenses and permits do, hence they are actually illegal. Banks are private concerns who can decide who they do or do not wish to deal with. Our rights come from God, since before the time of man made "laws". Dads are justified in doing whatever they need to do to ensure the well being of their children, but again, this is a matter of free association rather than "rights".
LLoyd If simpson is your idea of a law abiding citizen then you must not be a rational person.
unfortunately, men will constantly, slowly push for more and more and more... it never works. common sense is not so common and is completely non-existent with politician's.
3 or more waiting periods have been shown to cost innocents lives. there was several recently who were threatened went to get a gun and were murdered before the wait was over. often domestics so the dem war on women got some more
Do not assume that people who suddenly go off and on a shooting rampage have any negatives in their backgrounds. For example we had an Army psychiatrist with all the credentials anyone could ever hope for as well as intensive background checks start shooting soldiers on a military base. Many people really do need to have guns. Having knowledge that many people are armed keeps crime down as criminals do not like taking risks. We will simply have to lose a few innocents now and then as the alternative is worse.
ANY background check ONLY effects law abiding people. NOT lawless , deranged or sick people. Get a grip. If a person wants a gun, knife, axe, baseball bat, hammer or anything else to kill another human being, they don't have to go through the government ways to get them. They can get them on the streets. True "gun control" is controlling your own gun. Period. Every idiot out there things a law will make a difference. Grow up.

Except for the fact we were all assured polygamy incest and more would not be next. Lies of course. All of this is just blasphemy to the highest order
These people have a deeply held religious belief. Xtians want to say they have a right to deeply held religious beliefs as a reason to persecute others yet they are more than willing to persecute the Mormons. What?

Is he covering up if he knows the bible? You decide
I think it's pretty obvious. I doubt that Trump has ever even opened a Bible, let alone read the whole thing.
Religion is between a person and their Creator. It is the business of no one else. Those who go around beating the Bible are often the least Christian.
Who cares??? I like the Bible but can't pull a verse out of the air!! Only the religious fanatics of Beck, Inc would even think to post this. The ENTIRE WORLD IS ON FIRE....Here's a guy who can't help right some major wrong and Halperin who is no Conservative and Father Beck want to play gotcha games???? Vomit. Vomit.....vomit. Beck is so obsessed and I now believe jealous of Trump. He used to be the Pid Piper until he went uber religion. I can't name averse but JEALOUSY AND HUBRIS are two of the 7 sins!!
John 3:16, seems to be one of the most important and revered. I still remember it from Sunday school and that was ages ago. I know you’d have no problem rattling off a few. And really is there anything personal about that for a Christian? I think not. At least I'm an honest non-believer.
DLV. I would be hard pressed to spit out a verse on the spot. I think his answer was fine.
Ok Romans 8
I don't recall the exact verse, but the golden rule also seems important. Of course, I think Trump's golden rule is those with the gold make the rules.
His remarks on 'the Bible' are too close to pelosi's on 'the word' with as deeply ignorant an answer to cover
I am surprised that he did not say John 3:16 from seeing it on a sign at a sporting event.

Putting their lives on the line fighting enemies before they harm us. In this day and age you don’t need an army. Just one person can do a lot of damage. I’m not saying invading countries is fine but when people are actively trying to kill you have to work against their base of operations.
Do you really think those north Vietnamese were innocent? They brutalized the south. The Vietnam war was horrible becuase or was a giant waste of blood and treasure not because the commies were innocent

First of all saying Toby has no talent is a matter of opinion plenty of people like his music. I’m not a huge country fan but not an idiot thinking just becuase I’m not a Toby fan he has no talent. Secondly, even if it was pre arranged so what? You have your opinion about the military other people have theirs. It’s not government worship it’s about thanking those who put their lives on the line. I can tell you’d be a person spitting on Vietnam vets. Shameful
