From Buffalo NY.
A Buffalo, N.Y. community activist who is well known locally for pushing for a highly restrictive 2013 gun control law has been arrested for — wait for it — carrying a gun illegally at a public elementary school.Experts Increasingly Contemplate End Of Smoking
ATLANTA (CBSMiami/AP) — Health officials have begun to call “end game” on cigarette-smoking in America.
They have long wished for a cigarette-free America, but shied away from calling for smoking rates to fall to zero or near zero by any particular year. The power of tobacco companies and popularity of their products made such a goal seem like a pipe dream.Guns, ya gotta love guns. Even if you don't own any you gotta love them. What other inanimate object brings out such blatant hypocrisy in the bed wetter class?
"Community activist" is code for communist member of democratic party, grievance agitator, a professional member of the left wing nut, busy body association. He is a
How does a mind like this work? "Guns are bad". "Guns at school are bad". "Lets pass a law keeping people from taking guns to school". "Now when I go to school I'll be the only one with a gun, this is good".
I'm not saying people shouldn't have guns at school. I think they should. Teachers should have guns. Parents should have guns. If the kid is over 18 he should have a gun too. Let everyone in a public school carry a gun. It's a public school. Everyone who loves their kids got them out 20 years ago. If not, and the parents think its safe, let them send their kids there. It's not my place to say they can't.
For what its worth, I think the police responded correctly. They called out the SWAT team, the military grade equipment and were ready to shoot on sight. Good for them. This is the correct response for any time a
He wanted it to be a felony to carry a gun into a school. Let's see if he does any time for his crime.
Smoking. Holy crap are cigarettes bad for you? I hadn't heard the news. The "experts", (how does one become a smoking expert, don't you have to smoke?) are now contemplating the end of smoking. Well whoop de do! Despite what they are saying, this is bad for America. Let's break it down. Social Security was based on everyone dyeing between the ages of 55 and 65. That's why they picked 65 as the retirement age. The government didn't save or invest any of those SSI taxes they collected. They spent nearly all of it on high end hooch and hookers for congressmen. The rest of it they wasted.
In order for social security to "work" (other than in the sense it bilked generations of Americans into paying into a system from which they can't hope to receive a substantial benefit) people have to die off in large numbers BEFORE they reach age 65. That's how it works. The government collects money that they never intended to pay back to you, you die and they keep spending other peoples money, all in the name of providing for you. It's a freaking brilliant con, unless of course people quit smoking and live longer. If that happens social security goes broke and all those old people will have guns and they won't be happy.
Which is why we have to legalize pot. If the broke boomers can stay high then maybe they won't notice that the checks aren't coming. Marijuana has more cancer causing chemical per oz than a box of cigars, or so I'm told. Maybe if we hurry up and get everyone smoking pot, instead of evil tobacco, we can save social security.
