National Defense? You mean like the Pentagon, the feeding trough for corrupt politicians and their friends to make millions while the boots on the ground in harms way make less than minimum wage? I don't think so.

As far as the troopers, law enforcement is not a commodity which can be purchased. Comparing them to a commodity like health insurance, and health care is not apples to apples. Health insurance can be very easily be purchased without government involvement by those of us who choose to work, therefore earning money to buy things like health insurance from many providers in the private sector.

Chuck, Can you give me one instance of the government (local, state, federal) sticking their nose in, and improving things?

Another irresponsible misguided editorial. You advocate moving responsibility up the chain of command. Perhaps it should be moved right up to Eric (thank god he's leaving)Holder, the most biased unfit AG the country has ever seen. Holder had the unmitigated gall to run to Ferguson after the criminal Michael Brown attacked officer Darren Wilson. Did he meet with officer Wilson? Of course not, his warped agenda took him to visit "community activists" and other rabble rousers, rather than visiting the officer who had his face bashed in by a criminal who was obviously trying to kill him.
The further up the chain you go, the more politicized and removed issues become. The local level is by far the most accountable to the people, and issues should stay local.

Editor, Can you back up the following statement you made with facts?

"The officers died as the result of one crazed individual with a gun and a warped mission. They did not die, as some have asserted, as the result of any individual's political policies or from citizen activism in the aftermath of police shootings in Ferguson and Staten Island"

When Cuomo was questioned about his foolish dictate, he replied " I've traveled this whole state, from Staten Island, to Queens, to The Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan, I've never seen any farms or farmers.

Everyone has been shouting peaceful protest?????? Here's a peaceful chant from one of the protests "What do we want..... dead cops" I must have missed the "peaceful" protesters in Ferguson who peacefully burned buildings and looted, or maybe the peaceful protesters who peacefully assaulted the NYPD officers on the Brooklyn Bridge, and on and on and on. No matter how you try to spin this, the blame clearly lies on the shoulders of Obama, Holder, De Blasio, and Sharpton. The idiot in the White House could have diffused this from the start if he kept Holder in his cage, and clearly stated that Michael Brown was a criminal who got exactly what he deserved.

As far as the murderer being insane, he probably was, and he was egged on by the anti police sentiment coming from the four stooges mentioned above.

ChuckD, Sharpton can spin this however he wants, but the blood of the 2 NYC officers is on his hands, as well as on the hands of De Blasio, Obama, and Holder.

I'm with you Albright, I'd invite you to barbecue, but my deck is covered with a 1 & 1/2 feet of global warming!

Don Cooper........ ARE YOU SERIOUS????? Are you honestly advocating handing over more money to politicians???? How about giving whiskey and car keys to a teenager, do you advocate that as well???

Governments, especially the federal government take far far too much of our hard earned money as it is, and they've proven time and time again that they are extremely poor stewards of our money. If the federal government ran the Sahara Desert, in 6 months they'd be out of sand.

As far as the "science" of the hoax called global warming, the only science that is settled is that snake oil salesmen posing as scientists need a boogeyman to scare the feeble minded so that they may continue receiving government funds. If it wasn't for government funding, these otherwise unskilled "experts" would have to get jobs, instead taking up space in academia .

Great letter Mr. Dickson. Unfortunately it falls primarily on deaf ears. The American public is too fat lazy stupid, and intellectually shallow to grasp the concept of "representative republic" They know the life story of the latest Dancing with the Idols, they know how fat the Kardashens rear sides are, they know the shoe size of the world series pitcher, but they don't know who their congressman is. Don't even bother trying to explain how our government is supposed to be structured, you'd get more attention from them if you were explaining the length of time it takes string beans to grow.
