YOU HAVE to wonder why it took another school shooting to get two good ideas like arming trained teachers and stopping the sale of “assault rifles” to 18-year-olds on the national agenda.
The teachers would be volunteers and many have prior law enforcement or military training. This isn’t handing a loaded .45 to your second grade teacher and wishing her luck.
I know of at least a couple of districts where the “Guardian” program is at work successfully.
IF AN 18-year-old wants to play with an assault rifle, there is a better way to do it. The Army recruiter is open for business.
NOTICED where Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has filed some more charges. I would not be surprised if the truth ever comes out, both the Trump and Clinton campaigns played touch and giggle with the Russians.
We all know the adage about no smoke without fire, but I wonder if in this case someone tossed a dirty diaper on the campfire.
TWO cars are 100 yards apart, traveling in opposite directions on US 59 at 70 miles per hour. If one veers into the other’s lane, how long do they have before impact?
THOSE OF YOU who live in Texas can still vote early through this Friday, March 2, for the March 6 election. This is a great way to exercise your franchise.
Vote early and avoid the lines Election Day.
JUST WONDERING: If the FBI and other agencies of our government have done such a good job of protecting the US from terrorist attack since 9/11, why can’t they stop these armed attacks on schools?
JOKE DE JOUR: Russ and Sam, two friends, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons, watch the squirrels, and discuss world problems.
One day Russ didn’t show up, but Sam didn’t think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something. But after Russ hadn’t shown up for a week or so, Sam really got worried.
However, since the only time they ever got together was at the park, Sam didn’t know where Russ lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him.
A month had passed, and Sam figured he had seen the last of Russ, but one day, Sam approached the park and lo and behold, there sat Russ!
Sam was very excited and happy to see him and told him so.
Then he said, “For crying out loud Russ, what in the world happened to you?”
Russ replied, “I’ve been in jail!”
“Jail,” cried Sam. “What in the world for?”
“Well, Russ said, you know Sue, that cute little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where I go?”
“Yeah,” said Sam, “I remember her. What about her?”
“Well, the little gold-digging witch figured I was rich and she filed rape charges against me. At 89 years old, I was so proud that when I got into court, I pled guilty.
“So, the judge gave me 30 days for perjury.”
