Re: “Arming teachers: Part II

Yeah it's a simple solution in the same sense that it should be simple to feed all of the hungry people with all of the food that gets wasted. But it isn't that simple, is it?

I actually agree with all of the reasons you've all stated for why it's a terrible idea to arm teachers. But I can still admit that if a shooter is in my school, I'm going to wish that I was armed. And, I can say that I would wish that for the classes that my 6 and 9 year olds currently attend.

Here's the thing. If a shooter comes into our school, I'm going to put myself in between the shooter and my students. As proven by every school shooting so far, teachers tend to do that. For myself, I'd like to have a fighting chance. To call me stupid for that doesn't make your position any more righteous.

Again, I hope it doesn't come to pass that we arm teachers, but if we do, I'll probably be one of them.

Re: “U.S. attorney announces federal gun, drug charges that involve gangs blamed for Power Ultra Lounge shooting

Dang DBI, where do you get that? They're going after actual organized crime after a lengthy investigation, what would you have them do different?

Re: “Over the hump open line

Speaking of Russians, have you guys seen the stories about conservatives in a twist over Twitter's suspension of Russian bot accounts? Apparently, lots of right-wingers woke up to find themselves short a few thousand followers after Twitter shut down the suspect accounts. Sad.

But on an optimistic note, maybe this really does mean that our country isn't quite as divided as some believe. If much of the crazy vitrol isn't actually coming from us, then we may not be quite as bad off as some seem to think.

Re: “Over the hump open line

In another segment, they played tape of Franklin Graham saying, after Trump was elected, "something was behind this, and I think it was God."

Nah brah, that was Russians...

Re: “Over the hump open line

A report on NPR earlier said that when the tapes came out in 1989, Graham "couldn't remember" those conversations, but expressed regret anyway at what he "apparently said."
