I solved the problem.
All the ladies have to do is store guns in their bajingos and the government will leave them alone.

You're welcome.

Quote from: Tom62 on May 27, 2022, 03:56:55 AMI assume that nothing will change again. The conservatives want to protect schools by fortifying them and having armed guards in place. A proposal from Ted Cruz in 2013 however was filibustered by the liberals.

Yes, the right-wing solution is almost always more guns. "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." As ecurb pointed out in his previous comment, the data show more guns = more gun deaths. Who would've thought.

Ted Cruz has now branched out with his proposals. He is advocating for fewer doors as a solution to the school shooting epidemic.

Dan Patrick (Republican TX lt. gov.) has said the answer is for people to "unify in faith" and "unify in prayer."

Quote from: Tom62 on May 27, 2022, 03:56:55 AMUnless both parties start to cooperate together, to tackle the problem, more deaths will follow.


Quote from: Tom62 on May 27, 2022, 03:56:55 AMWhat also needs to be investigated is why more and more men are depressed, feel isolated and are more willing to use violence against others.

Agreed.

From the Uvalde city website: photos of all the victims. Horrific.

Both teachers were female and 14 of the 19 kids were girls.

Quote from: billy rubin on May 27, 2022, 10:54:53 AMthe uvalde thing is a mess. the cops dithered outside for an hour while the kid killed everyone, in spite of parents being right there begging them to go in.

doesnt look good for the police so far.

Yes, some dads were begging for guns to go in themselves. This is going to be a mess. I hope Biden's visit can help the community. Glad that Jill is going - she does well in those situations.

Thanks, I will check that out. I love Paris and am planning a trip there next year. We will be staying in Montmartre. The thing that struck me about Barbette's story is how different his life was from the place where he grew up. Round Rock back then was as far away from Paris culturally as it was geographically, yet he thrived in Paris in one of its most exciting times. Still, he came back when he was older and infirm, and is buried here. At the end of life, I suppose "going home" can be comforting. At least you are close to family. My conclusion is that while your roots may be in one place, your fruit and flower may flourish in an entirely different environment.

I will get the book - looking forward to reading it.

alito said it in the draft, explicitly.

abortion deprives the adpption industry of a supply of babies to market.
