When seconds count, the cops are only minutes away.
I was sitting here this morning at the Worldmark timeshare in Vegas meandering here and there on the MacBook Air over what “everyone” seems to think is the waning end of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency in general (see what happens when you get too exuberant, too quick?) and flipped on the TeeVee.
It defaulted to one of the news channels—don’t remember which—and it soon became apparent that it didn’t matter which. They were all streaming the same greenish baby poop emanating from of the mouths of children at Douglas High School expressing their feelings. Well, duh. They just experienced a traumatic event where 17 fellows died, and amazingly, with zero competent protectors on hand to actually protect them from a lone crazy, a fellow student.
Where were the parents? Where were the cops? Is that a double “loophole?”
Were they waiting in line at the Starbucks drive thru and donut drive thru, respectively? Or, maybe they were at important jobs in the quotidian quest to sustain unsustainable lifestyles where, part of the style of most lives includes bearing children that comes with a simple deal, in exchange:
- You protect, nourish, shelter, and educate them during their dependent, formative years.
- So that they become competent adults in their own right who go and do likewise, in their own right.
Instead, we see a massive default on the core human job of always imperfect, but nonetheless decent parenting. It’s been a thing for a few million years, now. What’s the problem? Distraction?
Momma bear knows how to raise baby bear.
Check into it. Good parenting. It’s a real thing. And when leftist and Democrat political activism attains such an evil level that that they secretly feel glee after each of these horrendous events they’ve been prime movers in creating for political gain, we see what looks to me like a breakdown in social fabric—and what’s more societal fabric than raising, protecting, nourishing, and sheltering your children? Children in general, really—we all adore them. It’s not political football, folks. It should be something visceral, for all human animals.
In short, the leftists and Democrats have made political pawns and acceptable expendables of school children. Because they are evil beyond core evil. Sorry, there are no exceptions unless they wish to plead encephalitis. But no social breakdown, no cost in young and unprotected lives is too great in the quest to get back at white dudes like me who like their guns and who are highly competent with them. I grew up with them all around me.
They want to mold American men into Euro pussy boys. They’ll have to go fuck themselves because it isn’t happening. The good Euro genetic stock—including my dad—left that wanker paradise decades ago. (I know there are exceptions.)
So here’s what we’re left with.
On the one hand, you have all the news networks live streaming children who’ve suddenly become masters of public policy, as though it’s a State Of The Union Address.
On the other hand, you have The Usual Suspects, including the President, offering “legislation.” Again. So they’re placating the tykes. Of course. It’s no different that placating a leftist or Democrat. Even though Donald gives lip service to smarter people in saying, paraphrasing, “not just feel good, but effective,” in the end, it always amounts to just more restriction on the vast majority of folk who own the 300 million guns in America and does nothing to the crazies but show them what they have to do to get around the new “law” in order to do what they’re going to do anyway, which is find a way to kill a lot of people quick and make the evening news. Lot of ways to do that.
It’s tough to come to a final but rational realization that nobody on the political gridiron truly wants a way to seriously deter such events, because they are political gold or crypto capital for everyone. Gets them on TeeVee.
…In the end, I can be a bit less brutal to the kids. I understand they hurt. Jesus. But they are asking the wrong questions, looking in the wrong places, and are demanding the wrong measures.
- They should be taking their parents to task for placing them, involuntarily, in a place that’s a known defenseless shooting gallery target by political purpose and design.
- They should be asking “why have you made us such a rich target for crazies?”
- They should be asking “why, if you have armed and competent protectors in so many places, we can’t have any?”
- They should be asking “why is the majority of armed competent police and sheriff being used to conduct street and highway robbery to raise revenue?”
So perhaps, being optimistic by nature, trying to hide it, the kids serve a role.
Perhaps, parents, adults, and politicians should feel embarrassed. They certainly should and the solution is simple. Install competent, armed protection in schools. Pay for it by ceasing to pay bloated administration to the tune of wasted billions nationwide.
Final thought: stop taking knives to gunfights. And, “legislation” is less effective than knives, in gunfights.
