In the news….

  • Bullet Proof White Boards
  • Fireworks not reloading supplies
  • Majority of Americans NOT disappointed gun control bills failed…huh what? How to reconcile the two polls?
  • Judge skeptical of request to dismiss “Fast and Furious” lawsuit.
  • What did the President know? And when did he know it?

 

Bullet Proof White Boards – personally, I think it’s a great idea.  Though I’d recommend larger boards on the hallway side wall.

In the past I’ve discussed a few strategies in how teachers can arrange their room in order to provide protection and increase the safety of their classrooms.

Fireworks, not reloading supplies, appear to be the source of powder for the Boston bombers.

Majority of Americans NOT disappointed that the gun control bills failed. How did we go from 83% of Americans favoring background checks to 39% “happy or relieved” that the bill failed?

Of the 40 percent who followed the vote closely. 31% were happy, only 22% were angry.  I think this points to the key demographic. Basically, pro-gun has 60% of the “we care” vote.

Interesting, the article points to American’s inate “Libertarianism”. And this is why I think the Republican party keeps failing. They don’t understand that while baby boomers may care about social issues.  The 40 and under, are far more concerned about liberty and equality.

Republicans JUST DON’T GET IT!!!

What did the President know and when did he know it?

Sure seems like the FBI has dropped the ball in this case. Maybe even more than once.  Perhaps we should ask the mysterious Misha if the FBI ever had the ball?

(Will we see the media handle President Obama as they did President Bush – doubtful. Even though President Obama has far more in question. President Bush hadn’t even been in office for a year when 9-11 happened. President Obama is in his second term.)
