You're the one telling us that two shot kids is reasonable.


You're the one equating "outside the scope of <something being discussed>" as "reasonable". I never said that. I never implied that. You're engaging in cheap rhetoric at best.

"Exclusively" has a pretty specific meaning, genius.

You're the one wholesale dismissing two shot kids.

Have we discussed this, yet? Link

The linked article wrote:
The gun lobby argued that last week’s shooting was stopped by an armed school resource officer, proving that “good guys with guns” can prevent tragedies. But the St. Mary’s County sheriff’s office confirmed on Monday night that the 17-year-old gunman who opened fire at Great Mills High School actually died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The gun side is trying to spin it as, "he shot himself because he knew there was a guy with a gun a-comin'!"

Eh, maybe. It seems like it's pretty common for murderers to kill themselves after they kill the women who rejected/broke up with/backtalked them.

That was the same song and dance a few years back at the Clackamas mall shooting. Except then, even more ridiculously, the shooter supposedly saw a gun, left, went down some stairs to another level and then shot himself. Which doesn't strike me so much as a "Oh no! A guy with a gun!" as it does "Well, time for me to end this whole thing as planned".

Of course, even "a good guy with a gun stopped him" is secondary to "Uh, a kid got access to a gun and took it to school and shot a couple people".

Yeah, two shot to death is not an easy circumstance to spin, unless you just really want it spun.

What's a few children with bullet holes in their faces when the rest of the school is only traumatized? THE SYSTEM WORKS.

Can we convince them all to be the binoculars dude or minesweeper guy?

True story: When I was a kid, I was convinced that mortar guy was actually shining a flashlight down a map/document tube. It made no sense but that's what it looked like to me. I guess I thought he was telling the rest where to go? Uh, without taking the map out?

My brother and I used to throw those little firecrackers into their midst. Kids are GHOULS.

I'm surprised we didn't send little plastic dog tags to their little plastic families.

Usually only the dead are tallied as part of the Body Count. So I think the gunman being the only body to count is a good thing.

I don't consider any part of kids getting shot in school a good thing.


So if they'd been shot somewhere else, it would have been fine?

I'm pretty sure we were discussing school shootings.

If anyone is still deciding on what to do for lunch, between 1100am and 0100pm Little Caesers is offering a free Lunch Special because of something to do with March Madness.

Oh, that wasn't the time, that was the number of Palestinians that have to be killed before it becomes newsworthy.

Republicans: Oh you're worried about increased automation jobs lost due to corporate consolidation? That's just capitalism. Winners and losers. You don't see any buggy whip factories these days, do you? When it's all done by robots, everyone can just learn to be a robot repairman.

Also Republicans: OMGZ These Amazon people are ruining all the stores with their new fangled interwebs thingies! They must be stopped!!! Trump sez so!!!

In Houston, Texas, three people were playing with a couple of guns at a gas station and one of them got shot in the head. Clearly if one of them had a secret gun then none of them would have been playing with them.

One of the idiots playing with the guns stopped the other idiot that was also playing with a gun from injuring the gas. Good guys with guns, yeah!

So liberals prove they're just as deprived as conservatives as one of them shot up Youtube over their removing of some vegan meal videos.

A woman, who also has a very muslim-y sounding name. It's like the conservative talking heads won the lottery.


NPR played some audio from a mini-rant on Youtube. Sounded like she was mad that her workout videos were flagged as inappropriate or something, reducing her advertising income? I couldn't understand much of the audio. Just something along the lines of "my videos are only workout videos".
