In a Facebook thread I pointed one thing out

to a few teachers that were against arming teachers.


The conversation went back and forth and I later pointed out that sometimes a whack job with a gun is a whole lot better to deal with than a whack job with a truck full of explosives.

For some reason the thread disappeared. I attribute it to the truth bothering the person that started it.

A number of years ago I was working for someone else and they started playing with the pensions. here were a lot of people upset. I was union at the time and as a result had no dog in the fight.

I was asked what I thought and told them that there was a lot of emotion going on regarding pensions and they were running the risk of workplace violence which I defined as anything from a shove to a bombing. When you think about it, all it takes is a guy that thinks he has nothing left to lose and the thought of losing a pension can do that to a man, especially one with a disease like cancer and not too much time left.

I pointed out that the office building was a damned soft target, the road system in and out was only one easily blocked road. I also mentioned that the long, straight runs with 90 degree turns were perfect for a sniper and a number of other things.

The supervisor that asked me turned purple and asked me why I knew so much. I told him it was obvious.

He wanted me to think like a killer so I did and it scared the hell out of him. What he didn't recall is that earlier he had asked me to think like a mechanic and I figured out what was wrong with something.

My reward for all of this was to be put on the watch list. I later humiliated him a couple times but that's neither here nor there. The clincher was when I asked him how he felt that I didn't think he was worth the 27 cents a bullet cost at the time.

The recent shootings in Florida have made a lot of teachers upset when the suggestion of arming them comes up and the truth is that most of them can't even begin to think logically.

"Can you imagine a social studies teacher with a Glock facing a killer?" asked one.

The truth is that a social studies with a Glock at least has a chance to survive and save the kids. The hand wringing little schoolmarm has no chance against an armed assailant. None.

The debate went on until a couple of us pointed out that the truth is that a guy with a gun isn't really the one you look out for as there are actually a limited amount of casualties that he can create before he is either overcome or runs out of ammunition.

Timothy MacVeigh took a truckload of fertilizer and diesel and practically leveled an entire Federal building. He killed 168 people and injured about 680 if my memory serves me.

Like it or not, we live only because someone doesn't want us dead. If they want us to die badly enough, we're goners. A lot of people don't want to face that awful truth but they ought to face it often.

Maybe it will tend to make them a little kinder towards other people.

I'll bet you if people were kinder to the Florida school shooter then we would not be having this sad discussion.

I guess that there is another hue and cry to outlaw a popular sport/utility rifle

which is both stupid and a waste of time.

First of all if they do outlaw the AR15 and demand a turn them in it is going to be another joke.

The toothpaste is already out of the tube on this one. There are millions out there and a couple of the states have demanded they be turned in with a remarkable amount of success. The number turned in is an insult to the meanest intelligence.

What will happen is that the rifles will become contraband and therefore will be sold, traded and transferred only on the underground market.

This means, of course, there will be no control of it whatsoever.  Contraband is generally sold cash and carry to people with no regards to age. Ask any teenage pot smoker. They don't have to show an ID to buy narcotics. 

However, they DO have to show an ID to buy a legal firearm these days and because firearms are legal for people of the proper age there is a protocol sellers have to follow to stay legal.

If you are stupid enough to think that criminals are going to turn in firearms, guess again. For that matter, it you think the bulk of honest citizens are going to turn in their once lawful firearms you might look at what has happened in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. The number turned in is a poke in the eye to lawmakers. Many of them have been turned in by fraidy cat wives trying to save their husbands from themselves. I'm surprised that the number of battered women hasn't risen proportionally to the number of weapons turned in.

Then again, lawmakers are stupid enough to believe that people are going to obey any laws they enact. Yet they are too stupid to look at the drug problem. Surprise! Drug users don't obey the laws these clowns enact, either. 

You think that the bulk of people will with firearms?

HA! You should live so long!

Adam Rappon is worthless

Adam Rippon is a skater that represented the United States at the Olympics. He's a jerk.

Nobody really cares that Rippon is gay but he has to make a big deal out of his sexuality and is really quite obnoxious about it.

He seems to have forgotten the the Olympics are about sports and only sports. He was sent there to represent the country as an athlete, not to promote his lifestyle.

He wasn't sent there to be a whiny little bitch and badmouth the Vice President Pence or President Trump. He wasn't sent there to make a big to-do about being gay. He was sent there to represent the country in his particular athletic skill.

I am surprised the gay community hasn't expressed embarrassment over his actions. He's acted exactly the way that is sure to bring embarrassment onto the LGBTQ community. He's just been nothing more or less than a whiny little obnoxious stereotyped faggot. Truth is most gays hate people like that.

I do, however put some of the blame on the American Olympic Committee, though for not vetting him first. Athletes are supposed to represent the country in a good light and not embarrass it.

Frankly I wish his team mates would hold him a nice little party consisting of a blanket and a bunch of socks containing padlocks. He's certainly earned it.

When his Olympic team mates are through with him the LGBTQ community ought to get their pound of flesh off the whiny little twerp for giving them a bad name. A folded entrenching tool upside the head sounds about right.

The Olympics are on in the background

and the couple figure skating are very graceful.

People don't understand that grace like this requires a lot of strength and power.

It's one thing to watch a bunch of NFL gorillas bash each other around but I seriously doubt that a whole lot of them are capable of the grace and fluidity that is shown on figure skating events or in ballet.

Wow! I just read where

the Paycheck (Trump)president wants to undo another part of the legacy of the Food Stamp President (Obama).

Trump proposes giving actual food to people in place of EBT cards.

Of course this is an unlikely sell to get past congress but it makes sense when you think about it. It will likely lower corruption rates among the program users to a dull roar.

They can't cheat on a program like this to buy liquor and cigarettes. Drug dealers won't take macaroni and cheese for drugs.

They can't buy several large boxes of shrimp and take them down the street to the next grocer and sell them wholesale.

On the other hand, it will be a miracle if Trump can sell this to congress because it would mean a blow to corporate welfare. Stores like Walmart take in a fortune on EBT card s and other government programs.

Still, they ought to do this because the honest Joe Taxpayer deserves to not have to see someone on assistance load up on things he can't afford only to take everything home in a car that's nicer than his.

There is a memorial to the people that died on 911 in Bayonne, NJ


that a lot of people do not know exists. It is a gift from the Russian government and is called the teardrop memorial.

Here's a picture of it and what irks me is that it was given to us in 2006 but never received much publicity. 



For what it's worth, the Russians have had to deal with terrorism also.
