And remember, the Sidwell School where FUBARack's children along with others from Big Government elitists and their crony capitalists have 11 armed guards on duty to protect those "special" children. Those 11 are regular staff of the school and do not include secret service agents. [An article was on the Drudge Report yesterday credited to Breitbart.]

Cuban Peete...really?? Let's remember that the children of politicians are an obvious target so having this level of security for them is more than reasonable. Plus it's been in practice during all administrations for the past 30 years. Drudge Report is an extremely biased and asinine organization and offer little solution for any real issue; they make their money by stirring up the masses to maintain the division (R's vs D's)...

There is nothing special about politicians that gives their children rights that other children do not have.

Politicians are not aristocracy. They are merely our employees.

You're right. On paper they do serve the public. But do they ever act that way? That's why I think it's important to ensure that the public is armed. And tragedies like school shootings only give politicians an excuse to disarm the public. The other tragedy is that the public is usually complicit. That's what an overly emotional response will do. There's a place for emotions, but politicians are never above exploiting them.

Mother...quite the contrary, politicians (congress et al) represent the 'aristocracy' and, therefore, benefit by association (and contributions). Power and money run this country, and the children of 'politicians' are exceptionally vulnerable to kidnapping for ransom/extortion purposes...that should clear it up for you

Really, Charlie?? So where is the 'fault' of my comment that makes me an idiot in you eyes?? Calling someone an idiot, especially without a comment of fact, reflects only on you...

The objection is not to the children of the influential being well guarded, the objection is other 's children not being permitted armed guards even if they are volunteers and/or teachers who are licensed to carry.

As a candidate for president of the United States, it is incumbent on me to make a statement regarding the Sandy Hook massacre and to explain how my policies would help prevent other such massacres should I become president. As I discuss this sensitive topic, it is also incumbent on me to sound more rational and articulate than the incumbent. That will not be difficult.
 
As president, I plan to attack the issue in two ways. First, I will use the bully pulpit to influence voters and state lawmakers. Second, I will take direct action to influence...
