I mean, realistically, that one guy wasn't going to be able to stop anything, which is why everyone should shut up about their idiot fantasies of arming school teachers.

Apparently, the school resource officer got there in 2 minutes and waited outside for 4. The shooting itself lasted only 6-7 minutes.

The whole "alpha wolf pack" thing is actually based on very dated science! The original research was on a captive wolf pack in the 40's, but studies since then on wild wolves have found a completely different pack dynamic centered around family, not "alpha" machismo shit.

The most fun you'll ever have is mentioning this to a dog trainer who likes to alpha roll and idolizes Cesar Milan.

yo where's that really good article highlighting how while conservative idiots going to colleges solely for trolling gets all the "Muh Speech!" attention, the corporatization of higher education does a whole hell of a lot more to crush leftist speech.

You mean Don Moynihan's piece?

He is a pretty awesome Twitter follow, btw. Also lol at how much of an old pandora is about Twitter.

Fuck every dumb fuck whoever said, "It's illegal immigration we have a problem with, not legal immigration!" forever and ever, amen.

His question was also "what about putting a bunch of armed ex-vets??" so if CNN screened out that dumb as fuck question, good for them.

every veteran is literally chris kyle and is a super great sharpshooter pew pew pew pew


(btw i mean the chris kyle that chris kyle was before he was shot by a bad guy with a gun even though he had a gun himself)

Chris Kyle was a god damned psycho who made up shit about sniping people from the top of the Superdome after Katrina and some shit about a gas station fight that definitely never happened.

Chris Kyle was also a Bad Guy with a Gun

I know. That's why I didn't say he was the good guy with a gun. :smug:

Anyway I'm glad that the people who are saying it's a mental health problem and that people with mental illnesses should be preemptively locked up are also the ones saying we should arm veterans, a population known for having lower than average rates of mental health problems.

I almost feel bad for him but then I remember how much this fucking coward deserves it:

I mean it's great and all that whenever some idiot comes up with this super awesome idea, they're assuming that every teacher is physically and mentally fit to be carrying a fucking gun and be ready to use it appropriately when the reality is there are a bunch of people out there teaching who can never be trained enough to do this.

I mean jesus christ, my mom taught pre-K at a daycare until she was eligible to retire and go on Medicare. At the time she retired, she had pretty severe osteoarthritis that made it difficult for her to get around. At work, she was responsible for more and more kids each year, and the managers had cut back staffing so badly that they couldn't get coverage for bathroom breaks during the day. They just told their staff to pee before opening and then hold it until their break or the end of the day because lots of them couldn't actually get breaks or coverage during nap time. So yeah great give a 60-something year old woman with mobility problems a fucking gun when she's never even touched one before and tell her she needs to know how to use it well enough to defend against an active shooter. All for like $15/hour. lol.

Whenever I think of this brilliant idea of arming teachers, I think back to Mr. B, the band teacher who would get so worked up that his face would turn red like a tomato and how he'd bang his baton on the music stand so hard that he'd break it and was constantly replacing them.

Or the other band teacher who was ancient and couldn't conduct without massive tremors.

Or that calc teacher of mine who had very severe mood swings and extremely sensitive hearing and who would stop class to yell at us about how college professors will fail you and not put up with your whispering in class.

Oh or the guy who got arrested for having sex with a student.

Or the other guy who got arrested for having sex with another student.

Or the Latin teacher I had who used to smoke pot at home with her students and who showed up after winter break with stitches on her head because she got trashed and fell and hurt herself "but if anyone asks, that's not what happened, guys."

Or the linguistics professor I had who reportedly threw a chair during a faculty meeting.

Or the professor who was born in the 1930s and could never remember who I was despite meeting with me repeatedly.

Or the other professor who was an alcoholic with severe emotional problems.

Oh yeah or the anatomy tech who was just exposed as a pedophile.

And if we're going to extend it to TAs, there was the grad student/TA who used to surreptitiously cut women's hair on the bus and got caught putting bodily fluids in their drinks at the cafeteria. And the guy who tried to light his girlfriend's hair on fire.

But, anyway, think of all of the extra work the lawyers would have if this country were dumb enough to do this!

remember when college kids with a stockpile of firearms and ammo took over federal land for days because they were upset?

also i don't want this good post to be overlooked and the thing it's about to be forgotten.

this actually happened! angry white small government zealots staged an armed takeover of a federal building because they wanted to like illegally graze their cattle or some shit. and they got acquitted lol.

The illegal cattle grazing was actually a separate example of separationist extremists pointing loaded firearms at federal officers and also getting away with it.

i feel vindicated that my strong dislike of this obnoxious bow-tie-wearing classmate of mine 10 years ago was totally justified:

Whether interference changed the outcome of the election is basically unknowable and isn't really the most important question to be asking, especially since you'll never reach a satisfactory answer.

this isn't going to stop people from acting on the assumption that it was super effective, is my concern.

Why is that a big deal?

The degree of success of the interference doesn't change the fact that it was an aggressive act by the Russian government that deserves a diplomatic response of some kind and some introspection on what we can do to root out the ratfuckers in our shitty ass dumb government who happily played along.
