No. Trying to understand why you would post a link to something you do not agree with. I can think of no reason why that would make any sense. I suspect you just read it quickly and thought if it makes me look bad, you would post it regardless of whether it might be true or not. It came from USA today. After reading it myself, I am surprised such a reputable news source would publish it even if it was clearly stated as someone's opinion.

You seem to think your opinion is the only one that matters. I see your posts as just an attempt to sway public opinion in your anti-American socialist favor.

No. My opinion is not the only one that matters. But you linked to a post that was a newspaper article that said it was an opinion. And it was quite easy to prove that opinion was factually wrong.

I certainly do not feel I have a anti-American socialist view point. But like the majority of Americans I am strongly opposed to our current president with his views based on the many many lies that come out of his mouth on a daily basis.

In my email box on 4/4/18:

********************************************************

Fellow New Yorker,

Last fall, I pushed for legislation to close a loophole to ensure domestic abusers are required to surrender all firearms, not just handguns.

Thousands of you signed our petition, and I am happy to say our efforts have paid off. Over the weekend, I signed into law a bill that will remove firearms from those who commit any domestic violence crimes.

The link between domestic violence and gun violence is clear. Research shows when a domestic abuser has access to a gun, the homicide risk goes up 5 times. Removing guns from domestic abusers is a common-sense measure that will save lives.

The recent wave of mass shootings in our country is horrifying, and the federal government’s failure to act in any meaningful way is unconscionable.

Our gun laws are already the strongest in the nation, and with this legislation, we are going even further and will continue to lead the fight to end gun violence. Help share the good news.

I thank you for your advocacy and your support.

Sincerely,

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

If Mueller recommends impeachment, as now seems a good possibility, is that an anti-American socialist outcome?

Excuse me while I get back on topic ! Today's news, China going to online schools. Can't have school shootings if there ain't no schools.

So you are recommending a solution by the world'd biggest communist country and you accuse me of being a socialist?

Let me remind you that the US is failing when it comes to education and China will soon be the world's largest economy. China will someday OWN this country. Besides if the idea works who cares where it came from. You are a socialist but most of all you are a pompous, narcissistic, socialist.

These Charts Show Why China’s Economy Won’t Overtake America’s Anytime Soon

Nevertheless, the prospects for China’s economic growth are brighter than America’s; over time, China is likely going to continue to rise relative to the U.S.

The key lesson from 2016 is that this trend is no longer going to be smooth and steady &#8213; it might take longer than analysts currently expect. Going forward, there could be more years, similar to 2016, when America’s GDP grows faster than China’s. The 2016 reversal, along with potential for further weakness in the yuan, will push back estimates of when China’s dollar GDP will surpass America’s. It is likely to occur sometime between 2027 and 2033, not between 2018 and 2026, the prevailing forecast.

In other words, the U.S. will likely remain the largest economy in the world for at least the next 10 to 15 years.

That's if you really believe the US economy is doing as well as they say. Have you noticed that nobody talks about inflation anymore even when food and everything else costs twice as much as it did 10 years ago ? Minimum wage hikes,health insurance premiums doubling, loss of high paying manufacturing jobs, property taxes keep going up.Collage tuition at $40,000 to $60,000 a year, school taxes going through the roof and the only jobs available pay $20,000. Look at Seneca County, every small business is looking for help but nobody wants a low paying job in retail but they really aren't qualified for anything else. This country is failing faster than you think !

One of you mentioned getting back on topic? I reference back to March 9, 2018 when this thread was created, somehow the fact that students, parents and concerned citizens came out in throngs to protest gun violence but now observe a narrative resulting in an speech on economy? Maybe we are conflating the two but either/or reveals record gun violence while our economy took upon it self a record budget deficit, amazingly two factors that Republicans wish not to talk about.

Ya Maybe you are right.

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/cbo-forecasts-the-return-of-trillion-dollar-deficits-2018-04-09

The Congressional Budget Office on Monday forecast the return of trillion-dollar deficits in 2020, in the nonpartisan agency's first budget update since the enactment of President Donald Trump's tax cut law last year and the big spending bill this year.

Being an engineer we wouldn't expect that you would get the connection between gun violence and school safety. In case you haven't noticed bomb threats seem to be on the rise. Guns are just one of a number of issues pertaining to school safety. Online classes would be an answer and are becoming more popular with colleges and universities. You claim to be an expert engineer but can't grasp the fact that gun violence in schools wouldn't exist if there were no schools.
Also the fact that China is now the #2 economic world power it would be reasonable to assume their system of education works and our decline may indicate that we may be doing something wrong.

Being an individual with common sense and comprehension, it's clear and quite evident that there is something afoul going on in your life. For what ever reason, you're looking for some attention because the thread was created on the topic of gun violence but you've offer one solitary off the cuff remark which has no relevance to the subject at hand, along with your last remark, please make the connection of approximately 40 posts pertaining to youths and guns and maybe you can equate that one economic rebuttal as being relevant.


March for Our Lives Rally...yeah, I see the common thread (No pun intended" whistle

The fact that you are addressing me indicates you missed something. I suggest we consider online schools like China and Kyle made it an economic debate. So your common sense and comprehension let you down. crazy

LOL, apparently I've made your day Sir by responding to one irrelevant individual who is wishing and hoping for some type of attention, well, you've garnered it by reminding me of mental health and it's relevancy to gun possession. My youngest Grand is 8 years old and Papa would be very disappointed in her if she mimicked your actions, entirely inappropriate for someone your age.

Addendum, I deem it unacceptable to laugh at your immaturity, my BAD!!!!

I don't know Formermac at all. But I admire the posts he sometimes puts on here of how proud he is of his children and grandchildren.

Living in China is not easy. When there are more than 1.5 billion people like you in a country with no social guarantees, you don’t have a choice other than to fight and claw your way up. Chinese kids, though, are quite ready for such a challenge because their hard work starts with the very first year at school.

I used to work as an English teacher at four different schools in China, and it’s very interesting for me now to compare the European and Chinese approaches to education.

1. Many Chinese schools don't have central heating so both students and teachers leave their overcoats on in the winter.

The education system is based on verbatim learning. Children just sit and learn lots of material by heart, while teachers demand automatic reproduction without really caring about whether their students actually understand what they say.

Chinese children study for more than ten hours a day.

Many schools take corporal punishments for granted
