Everything Else / Snow, Glorious Snow...
« Last post by M1911A1 on Today at 03:37:15 PM »
It’s snowing…big, fat. soft flakes that are sticking well.So far, about an inch.

Our bigger stove is eating wood wholesale, but the whole house is nice and warm.
It’s the view out the windows that is cold, not us.

The birds and squirrels seem to be taking it well.
Even the three hummingbirds which are wintering over with us seem to be OK.

Very soon the whole island will look like a powdered-sugar-frosted Christmas cookie.

And also pretty soon I'll have to trudge out to the post-box to get our mail (shi-v-v-v-er)...

Well I read it and it is so right on.
This should be required reading for everyone, as the title says:
There’s a Way to Stop Mass Shootings, and You Won’t Like It.

Have you noticed how "In Your Face" those young students are when being interview on TV? They are to the point of being belligerent, in their mannerisms and speech, and outright demanding. These kids are getting now where with their attitudes.

We had 2 kid, with autism, in our church congregation. One left to move to Mississippi. Guys, they are very hard to have conversation with, in fact almost impossible to hold a conversation with. One lived down the road from us and I even took him to church services on several occasions. Yo could speak to him and he would answer, but have no rebuttle in any form. I made it a point to speak to him, but don't know how much good it ever did.

He think and calls himself Jedi, something or another, and speak fluent Spanish. His parents said the shrnk said to let him do it, so he has assumed that name totally. It is very hard situation with them in dealing with them.

Some reports say Cruz has autism, among other mental problems.

One can assume the with the attitude you see displayed in those interviews, those kids, in that school, are not going to make any effort to include anyone, with problems, into their inner circles. Just watch those interviews and see for yourself. They are totally "In Your Face" communicators. It is hard to see how they are going to get anywhere with that type of attitude.

Here's an essay that's well worth your time to read.
It's a really, really good suggestion about putting an end to the "nutcase" violence we've been seeing.

It's probably easier to find that single shooter quickly, and trap him immediately, if you have lots of people looking for him separately, all at the same time.

A bit off topic, and, I realize I'm opening myself up to flame attacks, but, can someone tell me WHY these single-shooter events require a hundred LEO's with automatic weapons, armored vehicles, and air support?

Where's "Martin Riggs" when we need him?

So, how many people are killed because of drugs (illegal or otherwise)? How many from vehicle accidents (or  otherwise), medical malpractice, and let's not forget about abortions and political ambitions, yada, yada, yada.

Here's a little tidbit for ya.  We all know, here on the Forum, that there are firearms on Orcas Island, and I am sure that there are probably firearms on the other islands as well.

Read through the link. Then, please tell me what rates higher - 'incidents involving a motor vehicle' or 'incidents involving a firearm.'  In fact, on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate incidents involving a motor vehicle a 10. Incidents involving firearms would not even register on the scale.

http://sanjuanislander.com/news-articles/law-enforcement/sheriff-s-log/26286/sheriff-s-log-dec-20-26-armed-standoff-loose-cow-email-threat.

Blaming firearms, since we have 'obviously violent guns' is akin to blaming the sidewalk that killed the person who just jumped 5 stories to his death. 

I have more, but must get back to work.
