    BTW, I heard some shows have decided not to air re-runs of The Cosby Show and probably ever again. Does this mean that Cosby is going in the same way that Jimmy Savile did in Britain? For anyone who doesn't know who Savile is. He was a children's TV host as well as a host of Top of the Pops as he was considered an icon and was even knighted by the queen but a year after his death in 2011, the shit hit the fan once people learned he had sexually assaulted children. His tombstone was removed and everyone wished he'd never existed.

    Three million more votes for Clinton than Trump was a step in the right direction too, and look where that got us :P

    For some reason this lyric from the Oingo Boingo song "Insanity" popped into my head when you said that:

    The white folks think they're at the top; ask any proud white male
    A million years of evolution, we get Danny Quayle

    Shooting at Sante Fe High School near Galveston TX. 8 confirmed dead, possibly 10 dead, keeps climbing, multiple injuries, shooter is in custody; shooter used a shotgun which isn’t regulated; somebody pulled an alarm (conflicting reports but several students saying they saw the shooter do it), some students stating that it didn’t sound like a normal fire alarm, they didn’t know what to do. This high school put out a memo after Parkland saying it was going to install several security officers but not sure if that ever happened. The gunman walked into an art room and began firing.

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/santa-f...tream-updates/

    After 9-11, we immediately made airports safe with increased Federal security.

    I’m certainly no Trump fan, but he said that during early reports while it was unfolding and, to be fair, the term “not looking good” is an old and formerly commonly-used colloquialism that was a nice way of saying “grim.” If somebody was dying, you didn’t answer “How’s he doing?” with “He’s dying;” You said “It’s not looking good.”

    I still use the term, myself.

    Trump’s response since that initial response was much stronger, stating the need for more security in schools and the need to keep guns out of the hands of people who want to harm themselves and others.

    Note that authorities have now also located explosives in and around the school and outside the school premises and are asking residents to report suspicious items. A second person of interest has been taken into custody.

    People can call out for gun control all they want, but culture is as much a part of it as being able to get guns. Violence is fetishized in this country be it through audio/visual media, hunting, or just a part of what people think their lives should be like. NOTE: I'm all for more gun control, but I don't think it's going to magically solve all the problems.

    It's certainly better than doing nothing at all. Maybe it won't, but we won't know if we don't try. Maybe it will work, maybe it won't, but doing nothing at all isn't gonna fix jack shit

    I keep seeing messages about how "libs forget the real problem is mental illness!" and the only thing I can think of is ol' Ronnie.

    Side note: so nice to find an article from 1984 talking about it.

    I wanted to reply with "why not both" (firearm legislation as well as mental health help) but then I saw your list of contributors... are you really blaming movies/music/shows and hunting as reasons we have gun violence problems? Because I'm pretty sure that's complete shit.

    Thank you, WaPo, for that subheading. I would have been confused otherwise.

    You know that if they hadn't written that though, the right would be screaming about how the liberal mainstream media is lying to you and trying to make you think that it's more dangerous to be a student than a soldier. That subheading is the journalistic equivalent of the "contents hot" warning on a cup of coffee. It's so you can say "I told you so" to idiots who are too dumb to understand anything.

    If it came across as blaming some of those things, it was not my intent. People are responsible for their own actions and if watching a movie is what sends someone over the edge, they were going over that edge regardless. What I was trying to say is that our society seems to have a fascination with weapons and I 100% believe that it contributes to the violence that we see.

    It’s a disconnect from compassion, from reality, and the system is so Big it does nothing to protect children.

    If I had children in school right now, I’d HOME SCHOOL them.

    If you can’t afford it or can’t hire somebody, get sterilized.

    Because the System is no longer protecting your child against:

    * Bullying
    * Sexual assault
    * Bullets
    * Bombs
    * Inadequate education

    I feel awful that my first reaction to the news today was:

    *shrug*

    Don't get me wrong...if I take the time to read any interviews with anyone or to sit down and really process what has happened today, eventually it'll hit me to the point that I start to feel genuine grief for others. But to be completely and depressingly honest, my immediate thought when I see news like this these days is "oh, again? what a surprise."

    Is that tweet a few hours after the shooting better?

    "America is blessed with extraordinary energy abundance, including more than 250 years worth of beautiful clean coal. We have ended the war on coal, and will continue to work to promote American energy dominance!"

    That's the fucked up thing... an empathetic person, by this point, is going to lose their mind if they allow themselves to fully process how horrifying and tragic this is when it's happening ALL THE TIME. Every time another story about a school shooting comes up, it just feels surreal at first.

    One official blamed the school shooting because school had too may entrances and exits. As long as the people in power think that way, the only question you need to ask yourself is where and when will the next shooting occur.

    Something tells me that that official wasn't the fire marshall.
