Re: Politics

Yes, it is his job to head into the school and address the shooter. You are paid to protect the students of that school, you enter that school and deal with the shooter (a line in Billy Madison float through my head. I left out the swearing). That guard is armed for a reason. Get your ass in there ...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

This kid had some sort of clear mental defect that made him want to try to kill as many people as possible. The rifle he was able to buy facilitated that mass murder. Obviously we should seek to identify people who are a threat to society, but to me, it is his access to the weapon that seems the mo...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

The form in question. I forgot all the places one could misrepresent and know that mental health, drug use, etc. are not in the database checked, its the honor system folks, for honorable people, just like gun free zones are for honorable people. I can see opportunities to misrepresent all the way d...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I would also not answer the phone if you don't know the number. Bingo. Everyone l know and expect phone calls from is in my phone. Their name pops up when they call. If a call comes in with just a number (no name) I never answer. The only exception is if I'm expecting a call at a particular time fr...

Phone Spoofing Problem

Not to divert but this is Random Thoughs, OK? I have received several calls from people who said I phoned them. When I explain that I did not call them some get very vulgar toward me but one man told me someone is spoofing my number and calling other people with it as it happened to him previously a...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Yes, I've filled out the firearm background check, as I've noted about a dozen times, and it is not onerous. It is simple, asks simple questions that I can't quote, it's been a while since the last time. But, anyone can lie about a question and the background check only does a police search so your ...

Re: Wrestling

Rumor has it J ason Nolf is jogging at practice and wanted to wrestle against Buffalo last Sunday afternoon. I think he may be questionable for the Big 10 conf. championships but again he may wrestle a few bouts then exit and prepare for the NCAA's. They, the NCAA's, are in Cleveland this year, driv...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Like I said, if the background check for a gun is not as simple as my wife's state background check for work and can be manipulated by a form, then people getting through who shouldn't is a feature and not a bug. There is no reason to overly complicate the process unless you want it overly complica...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Carl Appreciate your comments. But, sorry, I don't buy this for 2 reasons. First, a background check that is reliant on how you fill out form is not a check. And, I'm not aware of it being reliant on your answers for any other area. When I got a background check at work, they took my driver license...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

The ruling to redistrict went to the SCOTUS and they refused to entertain the arguments. This specific map did not and I supposed the Republicans can try to challenge, but I doubt that is going to get them anywhere. The SCOTUS already took the position once this was a state law issue, and the new m...
