Americans intent on ensuring a school massacre like the one in Newtown, Conn., never happens again could learn a lot from Israel, where the long menu of precautions includes armed teachers. The Jewish state, which has long faced threats of terrorist strikes in crowded locations including schools, takes an all-of-the-above approach to safety in the classroom. Fences, metal detectors and armed private guards are part of a strategy overseen by the country’s national police.

It makes sense. Now the bad guy breaks into a school and begins to shoot children. Someone calls for help to that other people can bring in weapons to take the bad guy out. Why not have the weapons already there. For each minute the police aren´t on the scene, more kids die. If all of the teachers were armed, all those kids would probably still be alive.

Even if 10% are armed, that would give terrorist of any kind a pause.

I wonder how well this will work in the US schools with the education school graduates we have. I don´t think the teachers in Israel struggle to discover the motivation of armed intruders before firing.

If the Joos in Israel are doing it, no worries--Bill Ayers and the education experts will denounce it as anti-Islamic and it will be duly banned.

Two year compulsary military service in Israel. Teachers are all trained in weaponry. The urgent need for constant protection yields a watchful teacher!

Someone earlier today said on the radio that teachers were there to teach, not carry guns.

Okay, I have no quarrel with that. They´re not there as defenders of the children. Only as unbiased, monotomatic, instructors.

That stipulated to - Don´t teachers have a self preservation gene in there somewhere? Teachers are targeted too, in these shootings. Don´t the teachers have a desire to live?

Maybe not. Maybe teachers, like so many over regulated worker-bots, are nothing more than biological automatons, emitting and serving thoughtlessly at the behest of the ELITES.

The U.S. could learn a lot about school security from our friends the Israelis. The Israelis have had to live with the threat of terrorism for years. Gun-Free zones were a stupid Liberal idea from the start. Criminals are attracted to gun-free zones.

Secret US-Iran talks
set stage for nuke deal
Associated Press, by Bradley Klapper*    Original Article
Posted By: Leopardtwo- 11/24/2013 9:44:18 AM     Post Reply
Washington — The United States and Iran secretly engaged in a series of high-level, face-to-face talks over the past year, in a high-stakes diplomatic gamble by the Obama administration that paved the way for the historic deal sealed early Sunday in Geneva aimed at slowing Tehran’s nuclear program, The Associated Press has learned. The discussions were kept hidden even from America’s closest friends, including its negotiating partners and Israel, until two months ago, and that may explain how the nuclear accord appeared to come together so quickly after years of stalemate and fierce hostility between Iran and the West.

Annapolis City Council Considers
Stripping Mayor´s Powers
Baltimore Sun, by Colin Campbell    Original Article

Annapolis Alderman Ross Arnett insists the City Council´s decision to take another look at making the mayor´s job a more ceremonial role has nothing to do with party politics. But if the Democrat-majority council acts to remove the mayor´s power, the timing will coincide with the election of Annapolis´ first Republican mayor in nearly two decades, Mike Pantelides, who defeated the incumbent Democrat, Mayor Josh Cohen, last week.

The gun owner next door:
What you don´t know about
the weapons in your neighborhood
Journal News [White Plains, NY], by Dwight R. Worley    Original Article

In May, Richard V. Wilson approached a female neighbor on the street and shot her in the back of the head, a crime that stunned their quiet Katonah neighborhood. What was equally shocking for some was the revelation that the mentally disturbed 77-year-old man had amassed a cache of weapons — including two unregistered handguns and a large amount of ammunition — without any neighbors knowing. “I think that the access to guns in this country is ridiculous, that anybody can get one,” said a neighbor of Wilson’s who requested anonymity because it’s not known whether the gunman,

Jersey town adopts schoolhouse glocks

The leafy, well-heeled New Jersey suburb will station a permanent armed cop in each of its nine schools starting Jan. 2. It’s apparently the first district nationwide bent on packing heat in every schoolhouse since madman Adam Lanza gunned down 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14. “We’ve made a collective decision as a town that we need armed security in each of our schools,” Mayor Jonathan Hornik told The Post.

NYC Marathon Won't
Be Held Sunday: Mayor

The marathon will not take place in storm-ravaged New York City this Sunday, Mayor Bloomberg announced late Friday. Bloomberg had defended his decision to hold the 26.2-mile race as scheduled on Sunday, although many New Yorkers complained it would be insensitive and divert city resources at a time when many are suffering. Bloomberg earlier in the day said the marathon would "give people something to cheer about in what has been a very dismal week for a lot of people." But after growing criticism, the event was put off. "The marathon has always brought our city together and

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The Folly Of The Bundy Ranch Rebellion

The Federalist, by Grace Olmstead    Original Article

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
