There is nothing wrong with this app concept. Guess what, there are consequences for action or inaction. This is another means to making sure kids (they are children) understand this point. Scalese ha more »

You don't get it. He's saying she has her job b/c of her looks rather than her competence. Whether it was 15 lbs or 50 lbs, the number is irrelevant. He contrasts Andrews to women sports personalities more »

Did you miss the part where he bashed liberal intolerance on campus? Only in your warped pathetic existence would you take every position (however illogical) that the big bad liberals are taking away more »

Being a junkie irresponsible father is not the same as beating the kids - possibly to death. What an ignorant statement.

For all you hard a**es who applaud this note. Did you stop to think this shouldn't be a note. It should at least be a phone call to discuss the situation?

Why don't you start a company and try that policy out and see how it works. I'm sure youll do rally well with recruiting.

Uh, does that apply to elementary school too? Middle school?
Please identify a society where they're getting good primary school results through online only schooling.
Just a thought.

Bubalouie 1, name 1 instance where a mass shooter was stopped by a concealed carry citizen.
It takes a lot of training to handle a firearm in a crisis situation with innocent bystanders all around.

Things can be done. But dont' fool yourself into thinking they're cure-all solutions to the society we live in. Why don't we start with banning assault weapons? I like the odds of that kind of polic more »

It's a blog, not a research paper. Most (but not all) have underlying data sources that you can google.
I doubt you would take the time to review and understand the data even if he did post sources.
Posted 12/20/2012 12:52:04 EST
Maybe there are no cure-alls for mass-murders. There is strong evidence to say squashing the most rare, aberrent and horrible behavior is really hard to do. So, I find a lot of value in shooting down more »

Well, focus group of 1. Congrats. I'm sure you're well positioned to speak for emotional responses of all 6-7 year old chlidren.

Oh, the NRA advocates gun safety programs.... Well, that makes everything OK. If we allowed folks to own RPGs, I'm sure the NRA would have an RPG safety program and argue that it's absolutely within more »

You mean the NRA is completely populated by liberals? Wow, I didn't know that...

So you have data on the mental health of all these killers? Or your memory is the basis for good policy decisions? Trite commentary, huh... How's this for a point - there is no easy, silver bullet s more »

What a jerk. The myth is that lazy people who make up solutions while driving and call into talk-radio don't actually have ideas that are good policy. Yes, knee jerk thinking doesn't usually produce more »

Fox did not narrow the issue to school shootings alone. He used a definition of mass murder for which there are more statistics. If you want to narrow the issue to mass shootings at schools, you're p more »

What else does the world look like in your fantasy life of conspiracy theories.
So, let's be honest - you're full of it. BTW, I voted against Obama.
Posted 12/20/2012 12:36:45 EST
Uh, it's pretty valuable to burst the balloons of people who knee jerk come up with solutions that might feel good but don't work and have tons of unintended consequences. You on the other hand made s more »

Plenty of facts. No solution? How about this - there are no easy, completely effective solutions that don't have unintended consequences. Also, it's a blog. Are people only allowed to post fully de more »

Look, in every comparable western country our rates of gun violence are WAY higher in general.

Sorry if he bursts your bubble that there are all these completely effective solutions with no unintended consequences. He does advocate measures like gun control and renewed focus on mental health b more »

Dude, he's saying that these are not simple, completely effective solutions. He says that common sense gun control and mental health care initiatives are worth doing largely b/c they benefit society. more »
Posted 12/20/2012 12:28:09 EST
I'm all for gun control, but to call the 2nd amendment irrelevant is tough to substantiate. More importantly, you'll never get policy enacted that treats the amendment as irrelevant. Start with some more »
