alternatives to guns

I am wondering why eveyrone is debating putting guns in the schools instead of thinking of alternatives. It seems to be a can of pepper spray would have been much more effective to disable a shooter than a gun. Especially if more than one had pepper spray. I am sure there are many other alternatives but no one is thinking outside the box.

This is a succinct recounting of events prior to the arranged Mortgage Crisis of 2008, which demonstrates the co-operation of elected officials participating in Covert Fraud Protection for the benefit of themselves and those in power. In reality, fraudsters are not confined to a particular political party, but are motivated to garner for themselves as insiders, The New Commonwealth.

Just Who is Saying : "God is Not Allowed in Our Schools" ?

There is a forwarded email making its rounds in the Internet that says: ... "Dear God: Why do you allow so much violence in our schools? Signed, a concerned student" .... Dear Concerned Student, I AM NOT ALLOWED IN SCHOOLS Signed, GOD."

twenty six children shot to death

Last week, twenty children and six adults were shot to death in an elementary school. In the US, there are eighty-five gunshot wounds every day. Currently, we average forty-six thousand gunshot deaths per year, and that number is growing at a rate that, in a few years, will surpass the number of automobile deaths.

dividends are NOT just for the rich .......

Thom, I love your comments and the way you evaluate important subjects. But sometimes you are missing the mark and when you say that only the rich pay taxes on dividends you are Wrong. I am retired and live on social security and a small pension. I also earn dividends from my small stock portfolio which hovers around $100,000. If you support higher taxes for millionaires earning more than $250K or $500K a year, then make the same comments about earned income from dividends.

Walker relies on Mining because he’s too stupid to cultivate a climate for knowledge based or other cleaner industries.

If you were a member of, say, a Fortune 500 Firm looking to relocate your firm and Walker or Kleefisch approached and after about 3 seconds you realized they had the business prowess and intelligence of a kitchen blender, would you re-locate to Wisconsin?

Americans REACT...

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
