  • Where’s Hillary?

    Why isn’t Hillary speaking about the indictments? Why did the MSM not mention Hillary was cheated? I contend they know there is a dirty bomb coming with Hillary’s name on in. But I was surprised that the MSM mentioned the DNC hack as a way to cripple Trump. Apparently they have not heard that Buzzfeed is being sued for defamation of character (dossier) and the DNC has been subpeoned for proof of the hack. The DNC is not cooperating......hmmmm

    The reason they found there was "No Indication Russian Meddling Impacted Election" is because if they found that it did, then they would also be force to admit that MSM meddling influenced the election.

    Why are we not looking to our military for strategies on how to defend our schools? They are the ones who have the training - no one else does. Shouldn't our focus be on the defense of our schools? How many military personnel have been on TV to be interviewed? None. Some areas to be assessed: 1) location 2) building lay-out 3) who has access (list of problem individuals) 3) personnel available to look, listen, report 4) response to an invasion Every school community has a large pool of willing individual volunteers who could give some hours to patrol each...

    I don't know. I'm asking. I graduated high school in 1964. During the entire time I was in school Wikipedia reports that there was one incident where three people were killed in US schools, and none where two people were killed. There was an average somewhere between one and two incidents a year where one was killed. Guns were MUCH MORE AVAILABLE then. Schools had rifle teams. I shot an untethered .22 at Coney Island. I shot guns at Boy Scout Camp. Anyone who thinks that more gun restrictions now would help is oblivious to this. We also played with...
  • Vanity: Japan's "Solution" to School Violence - Corporal Punishment

    Rush played a clip where someone said that Japan does not have school shootings because they don't have guns. I have an alternate reason: In spite of it being technically illegal, Japan allows corporal punishment. The threshold of what makes it illegal is much higher than what it would be in the US. From Wiki: Japan Although banned in 1947, corporal punishment is still commonly found in schools in the 2010s and particularly widespread in school sports clubs. In late 1987, about 60% of junior high school teachers felt it was necessary, with 7% believing it was necessary in all...
  • Retired Police: Protect Our Children!

    There is a great army of patriots that need to be patrolling our schools: They are retired police officers. Just in Westchester County NY alone there are hundreds of retired officers that would would patrol our districts... minimum wage! The police officer would be carrying a firearm and not known to any employee of the school district to deter the potential threat. It is a simple deterrent that will make sure the potential threat will be met with equal deterrence. Makes me 😊!

    So, I drained my battery and got a jump start. Fantastic! I can get back on the road! Wrong! The warning light for ABS module (AdvanceTrac®) and the electric power assist steering came on and I had no power steering. No problem, I went home and began researching what the problem might be. Maybe it was a short?

    The Right Scoop ^ | SooperMexican
    Bartiromo and Newt say Hillary should already be in prison, and Newt admits that he’s very disappointed in Sessions. Again, I think there’s gonna be another push to fire Sessions in favor of someone who will slap every Democrat with charges of collusion, election interference, and insulting Trump. Nunes is already implying that there’s corruption at the DOJ….
