Crime: Reaction in official circles to the Newtown school massacre has gone little beyond mindless demands for gun-control measures — which criminals always evade. The government already controls too much. James Madison warned that in establishing a free government, "the great difficulty lies in this: You must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself." Thomas Jefferson warned that "free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy, and not confidence, which prescribes limited constitutions to bind down those whom we are

There´s nothing any government or legislation can do to stop an evil man with nothing to lose. They´ve always existed and always will. All we can do is hope we never cross one.

Either do away completely with public education and put it back in the care of churches (like in the early years of the United States), because the muzzies will do that anyway. OR, make principals of schools take weapons training (like all Wardens do even in minimum security institutions).

I favor doing away completely with the DOE and all state owned, state run schools of any stripe. Whaddaya think about THAT!

#2, once the principals are trained in the art of defending their charges, we can then train those who supervise children at other places they gather that might attract nuts with weapons - you know, little league coaches, ballet instructors, cub scout leaders, Sunday school teachers, etc. Training principals and school administrators is a bad idea. For starters, they are educators, not Matt Dillon wannabes. Something has to be done but not that. We as a society have to change. I am not willing to have my future grandchildren living in a country in which everyone who looks out for them is packing a weapon.

Immediately, without further cavil, appoint a security officer, well armed, to every school in the nation! Well-meaning teachers and administrators, even if trained and armed, won´t do the job. At the moment of confrontation a Socratic dialogue with a would-be murderer, likely with a rational teacher, would be suicidal. The primary defender, the security officer, must shoot first. Former military or police officers, experienced with firearms, are necessary. Consider armed administrators or teachers as back-up.

How about eliminating the "gun free zones" since all of these mass killings occur in these areas. A person that has had the training for a concealed carry permit should be free to go anywhere. An armed security guard at a school is simply an easy first target and then the killer has free rein for a few minutes to do whatever.

This will be an opportunity for the teachers union to step up and fight for the safety of staff and students and to get help for mentally ill students.

#2 training should be voluntary, not mandatory. We would want someone that is capable of killing the lunatic, without reservations, in order to save the lives of the children.

#3 appears to be suggesting teachers or administrators are not trainable. I disagree. And I would have no problem with my grandkids beings armed and fully capable of protecting themselves. My 7-year-old grandkid has already been taught how to safely shoot a .22 rifle. His training will continue until he is an adult.

#4, I agree.

Reid: Bundy Supporters
Are “Domestic Terrorists”
KXNT 100.5 FM (Las Vegas), by Chucl Meyer    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 6:11:02 PM     Post Reply
Supporters of Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy have been called domestic terrorists by Senator Harry Reid. He made the comments during an appearance at a Review-Journal event, and repeated them, saying “what happened there was domestic terrorism’ The government says Bundy owes more than a million dollars in grazing fees and fines stemming from a 20-year dispute over trespass cattle. After obtaining court orders and beginning a roundup of cattle more than a week ago, BLM backed down, called off the roundup, and returned the cattle, after armed supporters of Bundy converged on the area. Reid says Bundy is a law breaker. He says

Flat on his belly in a sniper position, wearing a baseball cap and a flak jacket, a protester aimed his semi-automatic rifle from the edge of an overpass and waited as a crowd below stood its ground against U.S. federal agents in the Nevada desert. He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy´s Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management. The rangers had rounded up hundreds of Bundy´s cattle, which

A Washington woman has come under fire over claims her PTSD caused by online harassment and Twitter trolls is equal to that of military veterans. Melody Hensley was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder 16 months ago following online abuse, which she says is the result of her being an outspoken feminist and atheist. She caused upset to many military veterans and their families and friends when she claimed her PTSD from Twitter trolls was as bad as mental anguish suffered by those who do active duty. Ms Hensley, head of an organisation promoting secular ideas, has suffered from PTSD for more than

GOP fears executive

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) is warning the Obama administration to not issue an executive order requiring that all new guns be made with biometric technology, such as finger-print recognition or bracelets. Cornyn raised the issue in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, who in testimony earlier this month highlighted biometric bracelets and fingerprint identification as a safety issue. “Your testimony has raised serious concerns for my constituents given President Obama’s track-record of acting beyond the scope of his legal authority and your hostility to the individual right to self-defense under the Second Amendment,” Cornyn wrote. “Is the Obama administration currently exploring

Al Gore on Climate Change: ´We

Honolulu Civil Beat (Hawaii), by Chad Blair    Original Article

The man who was almost president graced Honolulu with his presence Tuesday and walked us through a "seminar of sustainability." By turns a university professor, a wry observer, a recovering politician, a joke teller and a Southern preacher, Al Gore fired up an audience of thousands at the Stan Sheriff Center to believe that global warming can be stopped. But it´s possible only if each of us does our part. "Ultimately, we are going to win this thing," he said, one of many statements met with hearty applause. He also managed to repeatedly gush over fellow Democrats Neil Abercrombie and Brian Schatz, who

Dozens of Widows Dropped from Health

Over two dozen widows in Alabama were dropped from their health care plans due to Obamacare, WHNT reports: "More than two dozen widows who were married to retired Madison county employees, lost their health insurance coverage earlier this year. And now one commissioner says it´s time to give it back to them. The change was sparked by the new federal health care law, but whether or not coverage can actually be restored really isn´t clear," said the anchor. Says the reporter, "Madison county commissioner Roger Jones says no one realized just how much the new federal health care law would change

Vice President Joe Biden joined the popular photo-sharing website Instagram on Wednesday, posting photos of himself in Pittsburgh for a speech about job-training grants and his first selfie with President Obama. "Found a friend to join my first selfie on Instagram. Thanks for following and stay tuned. –VP," read the caption for the photo of Biden and Obama in what appears to be the back of a motorcade. Boston Red Sox baseball player David Ortiz snapped a selfie with Obama at a White House event and tweeted it to his followers earlier this month.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
