“There are two sides here. Obama who wants to keep the printing press going which will make the deficit about 20 trillion when he leaves office. He does not care that at some point US money will become worthless around the world. Then when people stop buying our debt, he will be out of office making millions a year on speeches.
The Repubs try to be conservative but that is hard to do when 40% of the country are takers and not makers.
It is a dileman!”

“OK how about getting serious about having every single gun purchase,including giving a gun to a friend, family member or stranger go through a serious background check. How about any person that has mental health issues that could put someone else at risk be flagged an not be allowed to buy a gun. How about we stop selling military type weapons to the public. You want to play with them join the military. How about we start teaching the younger generations that guns do not solve problem and are only to be used in situations of life and death. How about not buying guns form manufacturers that make guns for 5 year olds. Children need to be children and not think about learning how to kill. There is time enough as they get older.”

“Our local media stated that people who worked there where cicilian employees. This was suppose to be military facility with classified information.
Don't we use those in the military anymore.
We have money for outside hiring but not for military spending.”

rob000000 on Sep 17, 2013 at 13:26:02

“They are mostly civilian employees for the Department of Defense and the Department of the Navy--an indispensible component of the DoD team. To a lesser extent, civilians are also present as contractors, and it was this category to which Mr. Alexis (the shooter) apparently belonged.

The government civilian employees bring expertise and time-on-target that uniformed service members typically cannot. Having uniformed service members do the work of DoD civilian employees would tend to degrade their warfighting skills over time.

Aside from tthe immediacy of this shooting, the bigger question is how much we should rely on contractor support. Contractors fill important gaps, and they often employ highly talented, former members of the military. But as we've seen with Alexis and Snowden, they can also be the chink in the armor.”
