"We have to start putting our faith in candidates, for their own merits, and not parties. "

If you don't or can't carry at work, why would you carry at a school?

Beaumont did you actually read my post, or just skim over it? What I said was, "The people who already work in schools who don't carry while at work---BECAUSE IT'S NOT ALLOWED AT SCHOOL--- would gladly carry into their school once it does become allowed." DUH..

The Tea Party has been largely hijacked by the GOP, but has produced most of the few who are willing to do what needs to be done. We have to start putting our faith in candidates, for their own merits, and not parties.

" So in this fiscal year, we would actually be looking at a $44 billion spending cut, or less than a 1.5% reduction from what federal spending otherwise would have been. It would mean that federal spending in 2013 will be about $3.553 trillion. In 2012, federal spending was $3.538 trillion. Yes, that means that even with the sequester we will be spending slightly more in 2013 than we did in 2012. In fact, we will be spending more than we did in any year in American history except for 2011 ."

I disagree. The establishment republicans wouldn't fix the problem, they'll just talk about it as a means to get elected. Just like Obama did. They won't actually do anything. When it comes down to it, very few of these people are wiling to make any tough decisions.

"You pointed out what is probably our biggest problem, who created it. It doesn't matter who created it, "

Both sides are guilty, but only one seems to be actually thinking about solving the problem.

"But a good place to start would be to end the assumption that the most efficient way to spend our money is to send it to Washigton,"

You got that right. Never understood the reasoning for this.

"Just as long as we don't have a balanced approach and raise any more revenue. "

Even taking every penny earned by 'the rich' wouldn't balance the budget.

We don't need more revenue, we need to stop deficit spending.

Welfare and food stamp rolls are up, because Obama raised the income limit to get on these programs. He wiped out all the work done to reform welfare in minutes.

We will never achieve a balanced budget until Baseline Budgeting is eliminated.

"There's not enough places to make cuts to balance the budget ,little lone start on the dedt.I agree.I've said this before. "

Yup, and you were wrong then, too.

Over $1 trillion in means-tested entitlements welfare, food stamps, medicaid (does not include VA or SS retirees).

Projected 2013 deficit is over $1 trillion.

There's your cuts.

Are you sure of that? Half the people are voting for representation that doesn't even think we have a spending problem.

You pointed out what is probably our biggest problem, who created it. It doesn't matter who created it, it's here and we have to do something about it. But I hear ideas that are more of the same, when I say do something, I don't mean more of the same.

Most people recognize the problem Grant, they just disagree on who created it and how we solve it.

First of all you can cut A LOT out of offense. But we have to start calling it that. It's not defense, we've been on offense since WW2. It's hugely expensive.

But a good place to start would be to end the assumption that the most efficient way to spend our money is to send it to Washigton, let it go through the bureaucratic process and then have our representatives beg for it back. The federal government was never designed or intended to do most of the things they do.

Out with it Grant, what exactly do you propose we cut besides defense? Let me guess, education, EPA, Medicaid, Medicare, home mortgage deduction, etc, oh and let's not forget social security. How about we just privatize everything?It's not like there're greedy people out there who would take advantage of that. Just as long as we don't have a balanced approach and raise any more revenue.

Dang Ladybug your scull is thick. Do you really think I'm the only guy who would volunteer? There are probably thousands who actually work in a school who would do it in a heart beat, many whom already carry when not at work so it's not that big of a deal. If only the hand wringing burocrats above them would let it happen. Again, oh well. I'll just cross my fingers it doesn't happen in one of my grand kid's schools, because protection right now is a joke.

Today Rand Paul announced that his Senate office is returning $600,000 to the Treasury in operating cash that they didn't spend last year. And you tell me no cuts can be made.
