“As a teacher and parent who grew up 40 minutes from Sandy Hook school I was deeply hurt by this senseless act. My feelings for gun control have not changed though. This was not an act of "gun violence." This was an act of "human violence." I seem to remember over 3,000 Americans dying one day at the hands of men carrying only box cutters. Again, this was an act of "human violence,' or should we say, "inhumane violence."

With that said, I find it extremely tasteless and dehumanizing that in a time when we should morning the loss of innocent children, some people in the media take advantage of this to push their anti-gun agenda. This exploitation of a horrible tragedy shows just how disgustingly sick and inhumane some in the media are as well. DISGUSTING!”

“Suddenly this becomes a another party devide. Surely there are plenty on both sides that own or carry guns . It would seem however some on the left are hung up on the name assult rifle. The same as any semi automatic rifle that merly holds more rounds and has a millatary look. An individual can change clips or carry more then one gun. Are all the Democrates pro choice? Are there mentaly disturbed people in both parties. Gun safes and trigger locks. Education seems key. And while I am at I`ll leave it to the lefties for any misspellings, as I`m sure this will undoubtable become someones point.”

“It was an act of gun violence. Remember the equally mental Chinese guy who used a knife to assault children? Those 22 children are alive. Some of them seriously hurt, but all survived.”

“We invaded 2 countrys because of 9/11. What do you think we should do with this tragedy? Continue allowing Gun Industry to write our gun laws?”

HeatherSmith623 on Dec 18, 2012 at 21:07:32

“Except now we cannot take box cutters on planes, can we? And we all have to take our shoes off before boarding, don't we? Why is that after those crimes, we changed legislation to prevent it from happening again, but with gun crimes, its all "guns don't kill people, people kill people"”

“When would you like to have anti-gun discussion? Want to wait 5 years? In that time 60,000 more Americans will be murdered .... 12,000 a year... every year. This nonsense from American gun nuts has to STOP.”

“First of all, don't lump all Republicans and Tea Party members together. How would you like it if you were lumped together with the OCP members who committed rape, assault, and theft. Lumping groups together with blanket statements is called bigotry.

Second, Jesus was not a Socialist. He believed in individual freedoms. Socialism in our modern age is a structure designed to take from some to redistribute to others. Jesus believed in personal choice made by individual freedom, not government mandated law. He said, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's." This just meant that as followers of Christ we should obey the law.

How do I know these things? I have read my Bible from front to back and continue to read the Word. My Bible is so read it is falling apart. Every Bible reading Christian knows that salvation and God's design for man is based on freedom of will. Freedom to be saved by grace, or freedom to perish. Modern Socialism is designed to take away some of our freedoms. Even those who are on the receiving end of Socialism are dependent upon the government to take care of them and are at a loss of freedom in order to receive the benefits. The only true freedom is that which is individually enacted and pursued with no oppressing cost to others.

Jesus loves you bro.”

“Christina, read the story Your made up numbers don't even stand up against this story. It states her salary. She makes close to $12/hour. If you accompany that with the stock options Walmart offers their employees, medical coverage, and the retirement, an employee from Walmart can retire after 30 years with good security. She had been working only 8 years. She is doing okay for a cake decorator at Walmart! I dare you to find a cake decorator in a private bakery that does that well. And no cheating finding decorators in Beverly Hills or ones who make wedding cakes.

You might as well face it, your reasoning is flawed!”

“The education system keeps throwing money at the problem and IS not serving the needs of the majority of students. The answer to your question is easy. The liberal influences in our society have screwed up a generation of our youth and created a society of youth who focus on fulfilling their own wants instead of their needs.

As far as removing the behavior problems, it is not for my own ease, it is so I can serve the students who see value in their education to the best of my ability. Teachers deal with challenging behaviors weekly. This is all time taken off task from actual teaching and preparation.”

“Another lib stating what they call facts. Okay, here we go. I am calling you out! Where is your unbiased data based research to back up your claims? You know, numbers stated by an actual quantitative study. Before you state the numbers, they better be from a valid study and measure up well against the numbers for people who have not job at all. It is better to have a job and be a working member of society and get a hand up, than to be a leach on society and live off hand outs.

So, where is your facts? I challenge you, or will you wimp out and change the conversation like all libs do when they get challenged on the facts?”

“As a member of the NY teacher's union, I would have to disagree.  I am on the front line of education and the teacher's union negotiate good salaries, but also protects awful teachers from being let go.  I will agree it is not all the unions fault though.  The ACLU and other liberal entities that have taken the leverage away from parents and schools to kick out bad students is the major problem.  Teachers spend too much time with behavior management and this takes away from education.  At the price of "saving every student", we are loosing most of them.  If we could cut the behavior management students loose, then the other students will stop acting up in class.  The disrespect is horrible.  Just on Tuesday a student stood in a substitutes face at my school and called her a "fu@@er".  All she did was institute the sub plans.  The students wanted to rule the class and go to the library.  She got called that for just doing her job.  It is sick and negligent what we have allowed our schools to become.  Unions also ruined the auto industry.  If you believe that the UAW needed the golf courses and other disgusting perks they got, then you are beyond reasoning with.  ”

Christina Coad on Nov 24, 2012 at 13:01:33

“Quad, I live just outside of Flint, MI, which is home to the auto industry. The problems we have here are overwhemling due to the mass exodus of auto jobs. If the unions hadn't been around to fight for the jobs we DO have left from the industry this place would be even worse. I don't know where you get the assumption that GM paid for those Golf Courses that the UAW members played at, but they didn't.”

“If you like the 8 hour day, and the weekend, thank the labour union. If you have trouble teaching young people who have behaviour problems, perhaps instead of seeking the solution of removing them from the classroom to make your job easier to do, the answer may be, that part of your profession is to ask why there are so many children who are so badly served by the existing educational system?”

“Where are the facts?  ”

Christina Coad on Nov 24, 2012 at 12:56:22

“OK. Facts. The article says that one of the workers protesting makes $8.95 an hour. A previous article says that Walmart often trys to avoid giving full time hours, but even at 40 hours a week, $8.95 which I rounded up to $9.00 is $340 a week before taxes. After you account for taxes, even assuming that this man gets 40 hrs a week for every single 52 weeks of the year he falls below poverty level, especially if he is raising a family a link to the government page where I got the numbers for poverty level is here:

“Its simple to figure out. If these people get paid around $9.00 an hour would only make $340 a week BEFORE taxes and thats assuming they got 40 hours a week. And it's simply impossible after taxes and factoring in the fact that places like Wal-Mart rarely give full-time hours to avoid having to give benefits, especially if this person has children its basically impossible to NOT have to get help from the government”

“Ya, let's bring the Unions into Walmart and drive up prices to an already stretched economy with out of control inflation, and see all of Walmart destroyed from the inside out like the UAW did to the American auto industry, the Teacher's Unions did to our schools, and so on. Unions were a good thing at one time but abused collective bargaining over time to line the pockets of the Union leaders. The Socialist structure of unions leads to corruption.

If Walmart workers want unions, then they will push the agenda. As it stands, the push to unionize Walmart is from pro-union outsiders. It is all corrupt.”

arachne646 on Nov 23, 2012 at 14:35:36

“Excuse me, teachers' unions didn't destroy American schools, because all the other countries like Canada that surpass you academically have and will continue to have high unionization in the public sectors. Our private sector is doing better than yours, too, with Canadian democratic unions replacing some corrupt US unions in some areas. Unions are a part of capitalism, my friend, when they participate equally with corporations in a free enterprise system.”

WorkInCanada on Nov 23, 2012 at 13:45:08

“Unions are needed now more than ever. 50 years of the corrosion of the quality of life for Americans is in direct equality with the decline of Union membership.

Living wages are the only way to lift America out of it's third world chasing status. For those that don't realize the direct link between Walmart and poverty there is no hope...no proof, no facts, no reality will sway their greed for wanting cheap crappy stuff.”

Anita Newparty on Nov 23, 2012 at 13:35:15

“You know we are subsidizing Wal Mart's profits because their employees can't live on what they are being paid, so they work part time and use food stamps and other government welfare to live. So the low prices are not really low because you are paying for them with your taxes. Not to mention that once Wal Mart drives the mom&pop shops out of business then they raise prices and screw everybody yet again. But if you love paying welfare to the Walton family, then be my guest and shop there all you want.”
