Only Uneducated People Favor Arming Classroom Teacher With Weapons–Concealed Or Otherwise

Here are the problems with this very old and discredited NRA idea, which of course is now being pushed by the extremely-limited capacity of Donnie’s brain (we’ll pay teachers bonuses if they agree to conceal carry in the classroom!):

1. Most shootings start outside or in the halls outside of classrooms. How many would-be gunfighter teachers will actually get sufficient training to calmly take out their concealed piece and calmly wait for the actual shooter to enter their classroom? How many teachers don’t even have enough time for basic lesson planning and grading papers now and parent-teacher conferences now? What if the teacher has their gun pointed at the door and they not so calmly shoot the first person(s) who comes through the door–like a panicked student frantically attempting to find a safe place to hide from the real shooter? This WILL happen.

Picture this: you’re a teacher in a classroom. Outside you hear the string of loud, concussive cracks of high velocity rounds being being fired outside your door from an assault rifle. You hear people screaming, crying, moaning in pain, or dying. You fear that shooter will either fire through your classroom door (or through the door of the classroom closet you’re hiding inside) and then burst in spraying bullets across the classroom or into that closet. He quickly points the rifle barrel at you and it’s still smoking and you know he’s already killed unknown numbers of people. And you’re holding a six-shot revolver or a semiautomatic handgun and in your stress and panic and fear maybe your aim is off and you shoot the door or walls and windows or students not hiding under their desks, but the shooter doesn’t have to be so accurate with his semi or fully automatic weapon and he kills you and others in an indiscriminate spray of high velocity bullets in less than a second. Are you willing to bet that there’s a 100% chance in that instant that you’ll take the shooter down before you’re taken down? You could lose a ton of money in Vegas along with your life in that classroom taking that bet. And what’s more, the chances are excellent you’ll miss the shooter but hit and kill other students in the classroom in your panic and rush to fire your weapon. And just imagine if you’re an elementary school teacher…

2. Stats say that it’s more likely a barely-trained teacher who got their Donnie bonus for carrying a concealed weapon in the classroom is more likely to be shot and and have their weapon taken by the shooter or some other untrained student,. In either case, innocent people will still die and you more than likely will be one of them.

The clearly sane and adult answer is that all assault weapons and high capacity clips and magazines must be banned and those bans strictly enforced. Background check laws must be strengthened and enforced. All weapons and ammo dealers and sellers MUST be federally licensed, All records of gun sales must be entered into both BATFE and FBI computer systems for future accessing for crosschecks and ALL private weapons and ammo sales banned, including at gun shows. In this way if it’s discovered that a weapon previously legally purchased was sold illegally to someone who committed murder and/or wounded people with it.

3. Remember how George Zimmerman got away with killing Trayvon Martin using the Stand Your Ground defense–or how countless white cops get away with killing unarmed black people with the officially-sanctioned law enforcement version of that law? Think of the classroom shootings of students by teachers that WILL occur because an armed teacher felt physically threatened by a loudmouthed teen who stood up a their desk–or made a move to stand up?

4. Teachers are overloaded with work now. In addition to their teaching responsibilities they’re now required to be psychological diagnosticians, behavorial counselors required to enforce and update individual learning plans or individualized educational plans for SpEd students or for those with acute behavioral problems to different state agencies and departments.

And now idiot Donnie and the others on the NRA payroll have the BRILLIANT idea to add being an armed security guard to their classroom duties? Yes, the top 1% have paid out A LOT of cash to have the lunatics running the asylum that once was the United States. This is an election year. We have to come out in numbers high enough to offset the GOP election fraud and Russian hacking that will be out in full force come November

Republican Voters Love Their Monsters In Alabama

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/dec/09/roy-moore-praise-putin-russia-alabama

Donald Trump is not the root of the problem that’s sending America to hell. These stupid, moronic, phony Christian people from Alabama in this video who are so easily manipulated by monsters like Trump and Roy Moore are at the root of this country’s problems. They’re the smiling, thoughtless masses depicted in 1984. The monsters of the world like Putin, Trump, and Roy Moore are good, decent people to be admired because they’ve been told that by the monsters themselves.

They believe evil is good because they don’t recognize it as evil. They believe that even if a political candidate is really a pedophile it doesn’t matter because he’s one of the them and the Democrat isn’t. They believe Trump is one of them because he speaks their language in simple, visual terms they can comprehend. You will never change the minds of such people because their simple minds, once set, will never change. And these are the people that vote in the same Republicans year after year who screw these simpletons. The Republicans could bludgeon these people to death, all the while spouting quotes from the gospel, wrapping the baseball bat in barbed wire and Jesus, and these simpletons would smile as they day, believing it was God’s will and that the Republican is just returning them to their Heavenly Father.

And that’s how monsters like Donnie and Roy Moore manipulate these people. The problem with the Democratic Party is that it has never understood these people and never will. They will never understand their simple minds and will never learn how to talk to them. The Democrats don’t even know how to talk to their own people anymore.

And so…we have this. Trump, whose popularity is the lowest of anyone whos’s sat in the White House over the past several decades, will remain there because that’s where the GOP wants him. Roy Moore will be elected because he’s a God-fearing Alabamian, while his Democratic opponent is a godless demon. These Alabamians love Putin because he’s not a Communist, just a Russian leader to be admired because Trump says he’s an ally of America. They detest and fear politicians like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren because they’re told by the monsters that they ARE communists and socialists committed to destroying America by turning it communist and socialist.

The Democrats helped create this. The GOP exploits and perpetuates it. You can’t fix stupid, but stupid will create a lot of damage that may also never be fixed. And there’s not a thing any of us can do about it. It’s God’s will.

The Buying Of The Democratic Presidential Nomination And The Selling Out Of The Democratic Party

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/brazile-hillary-rigged-dnc-against-bernie/ar-AAumfqZ

It really doesn’t matter how Donna Brazile is framing her role in how last year’s Democratic primaries went down, and I’m not giving her a pass in that role. She helped Clinton attain the nomination as surely as the DNC did, which in fact Brazile took over as interim chairwoman in July 2016. Facts is facts. though, and the facts (OK–allegedly) are these: Hillary Clinton through her campaign bought and paid for the Democratic presidential nomination, along with funds provided by the DNC (via Debbie Wasserman Schultz). How ironic that Donnie essentially did the same thing on his side but using other people’s money and virtually none from his own campaign finances, which were relatively minuscule.

Clinton’s problem was that she didn’t have enough money to buy the election, which is besides the point because the Russians wouldn’t have sold it to her at any price. But now Bernie’s motive in knuckling under to the Clinton campaign now becomes understandable and forgivable. After Brazile told him about that August 2015 which gave Hillary Clinton control of the DNC and therefore the entire party and nomination, Bernie saw the game was rigged against him. He had no choice but to fall in line like the good foot soldier they had made him, throw his support and voter base her way, and hope for the best. Unfortunately for him and all of us, the election was already rigged for Trump by the Russians. (If anyone still doubts this, continue to view and listen to that vile scum. There is no way someone that inarticulate and that stupid could ever be elected president because NO ONE that inarticulate and stupid has EVER been elected president in our lifetime. And that includes George W. Bush, who was appointed president in 2000 by the Supreme Court and beat out John Kerry in 2004 by some very questionable vote tabulating in Ohio. But that’s a whole other story I’ve written about at length over the past years.

I have no idea whether Bernie was surprised, gratified, or dismayed by the number of us liberal Democratic voters who refused to march behind him last November. But in an un-rigged election Clinton had more than enough popular–which also translated into electoral votes–to win the election. Show me where in modern times the candidate with three million more votes lost in the electoral college fair and square. It didn’t happen because it’s never happened.

But I admit that all of this is as may be, which means meaningless. Bernie is once again an Independent, as he always intended to be had he lost the nomination. The Democrats are as polarized in fractionated (yes, the definition of that word provides the exact imagery I’ve intended) camps as the Republicans. The difference being, the GOP virtually controls the entire political process and the corporate media in this country. And the GOPers who oppose Trump are dropping out of their political careers like flies on a rotting corpse. But the ones who take their place will continue to march in goose step, I mean, LOCKstep behind whoever is in the White House. So don’t be expecting any major Democratic victories next year or in 2020, much less a unified Democratic Party. That was the price we all paid for the Clinton presidential nomination.

Trump Is A Sideshow Distraction, The Kochs And Their Ilk Are The Real Danger To Our Democracy

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/kochs-want-to-kill-this-senate-rule-heres-why/ar-BBDKsge?li=BBnb7Kz

I’ve been saying this for months now. The Republicans already control Congress, the White House, SCOTUS, and have gained virtual control of the election process nationally and in most states.

Now their bosses, the Koch Brothers and others like them, having targeted the federal judiciary system. If they are successful, the Democrats will never, ever win back anything again and no “liberal” laws will ever be enacted. Those in effect now that the Kochs oppose will be struck down in the lower courts or be declared unconstitutional by the Koch employees on SCOTUS.

Stop focusing exclusively on the idiocy of Trump. It’s now clear he was intentionally put into office not only to do their bidding but mainly as a sideshow distraction.

The Kochs and their ilk have been pursuing this complete takeover for the past 45 years. They’ve been unwittingly aided and abetted by the neoliberals who seized control of the Democratic Party: the Carters, the Clintons, the Obamas, the Nacy Pelosis, the Debbie Wasserman Schulltzes, the Chuck Shumers, the Harry Reids, the Heidi Heitcamps, the John Warners, the Joe Manchins, the Jon Testers, the Chris Dodds, the Barney Franks, the congressional Black Caucus who backed Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, etc.are all responsible for this. All the center of right gutless wonders who converted the Democratic Party into the Republican Lite Party.

We’re now paying for the fixation on building their own financial success as they pursued business-friendly legislation and warmongering at the expense of working to help make this country and the lives of the people who voted them into office better. If the Republicans are successful in further marginalizing and castrating the Democratic Party into total governmental impotence, then it will be our children and the ensuing generations to come who will continue to pay the price as well. I place full blame for the current state of this country, not on the Republicans but on the Democratic Party who enabled this to happen.

 

When It Comes To The Democratic Party I’m Beating A Dead Donkey

I just reviewed my most recent Farlefty.wordpress.com blog posts. I’ve been doing a lot of Democratic Party bashing. The reason for this is that I am unmitigatingly hostile towards them because they–Pelosi, Reid, Wasserman Schultz, Obama, the Clintons–got us into this mess where the Republicans have taken over and Trump was enabled to gain the presidency by election fraud and voter suppression. Bernie Sanders never had a chance, not with the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign running the show. The Dems have been so focused on being Republican Lite with the veneer of liberalism that it turned off the Liberal wing and never, ever gained traction with Republican voters, and way too briefly with Independent voters.
Obama squandered his opportunity to unite and fix this country by just being another neoliberal Democrat. Most voters felt he was elected in a bait-and-switch campaign and never forgave the Democrats for pulling such a mass deception on them. Doubt my word? What happened in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016? Obama was reelected in 2012 only because most voters hated Mitt Romney more. But the Dems continued to lose out on regaining the House in 2012 and then lost the Senate in 2014. The massive political hemorrhaging of the Dem Party continued in 2016 when they finally lost it all. So, in essence, I continue to beat a dead donkey.
ALL of this could have been avoided if the old guard Dems were tossed by power enabling the Party to finally turn Left and start pushing and passing LIBERAL legislation that the polls continue to say that most Americans want passed into law. The Dems failed us by continuing to fail themselves. And now they’re history, folks. The GOP controls the entire political game for top to bottom, from the corporate media to how elections are run and how votes are counted–or left uncounted or even uncast. It even controls the Supreme Court. And this is why I will remain hostile to the Democratic Party. The Republicans are now the only game in town and you can bet they will never allow any other party to set up a winning game of their own.

Hillary Clinton’s Attack Dog Surrogates Continue To Rip To Pieces The Corpse Of The Democratic Party

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/sanders-responds-to-ongoing-probe-into-wife%E2%80%99s-2010-bank-loan/ar-BBDaY8h?li=BBnb7Kz

This story clearly illustrates how the Democratic Party is permanently fractured and is done being a political party of any consequence due to the continued attacks of the Clinton surrogates (why does Hillary Clinton continue to encourage her attack dog surrogates to go after Bernie and his wife? And why should she still need surrogates? Her political career is over), against Bernie Sanders. Sally Albright proves by her slam against “progressives” that Hillary Clinton has never been a progressive, let alone a liberal. And Peter Daou, like other Hillary surrogates, took a swipe at Bernie without bothering to check his facts first. It’s this divisive scum of the Democratic Party that show why they lost the presidential election and will continue to be the cause of the Democratic Party losing every coming election until either they’re all purged from the party or an actual Liberal political party is created.

Unfortunately there is no organized political party to mount any kind of strong political opposition to the Republicans. Fortunately, the GOP is at odds with itself as well. Unfortunately, it’s on a much smaller scale and will most likely be healed over after/if Trump resigns the presidency. Temporarily, but long enough to continue to win elections from here on out.
