whiny beaches

Here's the problem; You are addressing the issue from exactly the direction they choose. Try focusing on the mental health aspect. They can't argue against that Dr Feelgood issue.

Keericed ! Need I spoon feed you as well?

narciso,

Well TM, the problem is they never actually look for a solution, the venn diagram from Columbine on, through the last half dozen incidents including probably today would suggest mental health protocols are the problem, but they don't fit the agenda.

Ignatz

Tell me again why I should listen to somebody this effing stupid?:

As the months unfolded, it became clear that even though thousands of people were being added to our database, we were missing thousands more. Now that we’re hitting the one-year mark, the full extent of that deviation is clear: The CDC counts about 32,000 people killed with guns each year, while Slate’s database only has one-third of that. Why the huge discrepancy? Earlier this month Slate launched an effort to categorize the gun deaths in our system. That effort verified the source of the discrepancy: suicides. We’ve missed nearly all gun-related suicides, because our information is based on media reports, and the media typically avoid reporting on suicides.

If they were capable of shame they would have quietly folded their tent on this issue when they realized their stupidity and gone onto something they know at least a little about like bong hits and STDs.

Rob Crawford

This would close all the special consideration retired and off-duty police get, right? Because every gun control law I've ever seen exempts them.

If so, it'll never happen. Gun grabbers depend on the police unions supporting their laws, and anything that puts the police on par with the average citizen will be soundly rejected by the unions.

narciso,

Well you remember Rob, in the mad stampede in NY, they did exactly that.

whiny beaches

"anything that puts the police on par with the average citizen will be soundly rejected by the unions."

An interesting idea, but how does it work extralegally? There's always been a sense amongst LE that they are exempt from the same laws/codes they impose on those under their thumb; us.

Their social club membership usually has codes of conduct that are not that dissimilar from codices of Hells Angels Charter in the 60's.

You place an awful lot of trust in the Club you don't belong to.

Beasts of England

'...categorize the gun deaths in our system.' System? Their spreadsheet is a system? lol

narciso,

They do seems to have an interesting methodology, no one told them, corollation does not equal causation,

Rob Crawford
You place an awful lot of trust in the Club you don't belong to.

WTF are you talking about? Did you even read what I wrote?

The wacky signer could have jabbed a pen into O's neck Joe Pesci style in about 0.4s and no gun could have stopped him.

And now for something really important: Saban staying in Tuscaloosa. Sorry Horns...

Yea, beasts!

So tell me again why it's a right to VOTE without an I.D. but the RIGHT to KEEP and BARE arms requires a background check?
Slate? Anyone? Buehler?

It's a quiet night Gus.

squaredance

Well they are just warming up.

See here .

It really is only a matter of time before the disarm us. They really have too.

Do you really think that the GOP will stop them?

The coup is [proceeds apace. The GOP has given away the game this week.

(And Bloomberg was elected as a Republican, no less).

What a mockery we have become.

Eric in Boise

I'd pay really good coin to witness a beer summit between Dana and
squaredance.

Gus

Dana is a WINE SPRITZER girl.

BR

Following on after AnotherBob's in a previous thread about the strange death of HI Health Dir. Fuddy - this from ABCNews:

She was doing fine out of the airplane.

9 people on board, all survived except her.

Uncanny, just last week I was thinking Obama should retire on Molokai.

BR

Very odd. She was in a life jacket floating with the others. How could she just "let go"? Hope she left a witnessed letter somewhere safe in case of death.

Danube on iPad

"It really is only a matter of time before the disarm us."

Squaredance, you stupid shit, take a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut.

BR

And why is the NTSB so quick to say they won't inspect the plane. Or look for her body for an autopsy.

Beasts of England

I really hate not to fan the flames of a good conspiracy theory, but why would someone want to get rid of the health director now?

BR

Ha, BoE, because I said it's time that TK be vindicated.

Actually, there could be many reasons. Perhaps Fuddy regretted and became talkative.

BR

Conflicting reports on Fuddy's body:

"[Rev. at] Killilea said Fuddy's body was taken to the settlement's care home where he held a prayer service for her. Her body was later taken to Molokai General Hospital."

Star Advertiser 12/12/13

This seems to contradict what the Rev. Killilea is reported to have said in the ABCNews article - that her Assistant, Yamamoto told him he was holding her hand in the water as they were floating and then she let go. Unless he meant she died while floating.

Beasts of England

True, BR. But as I told a buddy the other day who still loves the fake birth certificate idea: even if they proved the Hawai'i certificate to be fake, displayed a real Kenyan CLB, found Lucifer to be his grandfather, and showed him to be half-Martian; he wouldn't be removed from office. Ain't no way.

BR

Straws add up.

Beasts of England

If only, BR. No one would be happier than me.

BR

Also, the longer he stays in office, the more he discredits the -isms and allows time for those who are saveable by having their noses rubbed in it.

BR

It's as if he was artificially inserted into the time track to attract and concentrate the poison all in one place to fast forward to the cleansing. God is getting impatient with the lilliputians :)

Gus

DoT, the glove are off.

Gus

Half Lucifer?? Hahahahahahahaha. One ounce black equals ALL BLACK. One ounce of piss in milk equals ALL PISS. The complete Orwellian absurdity of what we are facing, and yet BARELY a ONE is fighting. Ted Cruz is CRAZY!! Sarah Palin said that their were DEATH PANELS!!! GASSSSSSSSPPPPPPPPPP. There are VERY FEW among us, who have balls!! I have balls. DO YOU??

Miss Marple

Good morning. Snowing here again.

It's not even officially winter!

I see Twitter has restored the former blocking method due to a massive protest.

centralcal

MM: restoring the blocking on Twitter is a good thing, I think. Besides having it used on me (Mr. Fournier), I have used it once or twice for what seemed like dicey, x-rated follows - probably spammers.

I see Fournier in my timeline this morning, so wonder when the "block" kicks in again?

Miss Marple

I don't know, centralcal. I read a story about it this morning so assumed it had already been restored.

Now I am NOT blocked by Fournier, with whom I have a cordial but prickly running debate. I have a list of people who have blocked me (most stemming from the primary battles of 2012). Brad Thor, Dana Loesch, Jake Tapper (THAT guy from early in the Obama 1st term. He does not tolerate criticism well) and John Podoretz.

I have only blocked 2 people, both of whom were psycho lefties.

Thor took exception to my disdain for Rick Santorum. Loesch didn't appreciate being reminded that she attacked Romeny long after he had the nomination so she shouldn't keep carping that he wouldn't come on her radio show. Podoretz was also in the primaries, but can't remember why.

narciso,

Well I'm always skeptical of Tapper, for longstanding reasons, Podhoretz was always carrying the Top Men's talking points, Loesch
was maybe too zealous on behalf of Akin, then again we still needed to defeat weasel McCaskill.

centralcal

Ah, yes. John Podhoretz. I "unfollow" him every now and then - he is one I can only take in very small doses. lol.

Tapper is very thin-skinned, so it doesn't surprise me that he has his finger poised on the "block" feature. I don't follow Thor or Loesch.

I figure I hit a nerve with Fournier. He was tweeting rapsodically (not a word or spelled wrong?) about Obama's inequality speech and how it "echoed" other famous, well know speeches. I merely asked him if echoing was like copying? WHAM! Blocked.

boricuafudd

BoE
Why now? Let me list the reasons if you want to believe such things:

To change the subject, get people talking about a conspiracy

To discredit anyone that suggest or covers the story as a conspiracy

To bring back the birthers to the forefront and see above

To send people down another rabbit hole

Those are a few reasons that I can think up right now, I am sure we can think of many more. All of them beside the point as if, there was any evidence that Obama was not born in Hawaii it is long gone. That is not to say that I believe that only that this is chasing a rainbow.

One other thing if evidence was unearthed, does anyone think that there is the will in Washington to do anything about it?

peter

rhapsodically you left out the "h" cc@8:36

Thanks, Peter!

But they don't want to do it, Janet, not even trim it at the edges.

peter

I received a letter from my kids' school district- well one of the dozens of administrators. It is so funny to read. The entire district is liberal, and the confusion inherent in this writer's mind comes through in the letter. It starts out with an homage to Mandela. Then, apparently, because Commie Core is creating havoc in the schools, goes on to a confused rant about how the district is committed to Commie Core principles, but is experiencing difficulty due to an "uneven rollout." It's just like Obamacare is a great idea; just the implementation is bad. Aaahhh libs, you can't live with them and you can't shoot them.

Extraneus

One other thing if evidence was unearthed, does anyone think that there is the will in Washington to do anything about it?

I'm not a birther, and don't get involved in the arguments, but I think it would be great if some evidence were uncovered and the whole country found that, in the ridiculous swoon over this fraud, we'd accidentally elected a foreigner. It doesn't matter if anything legally was done to address it. Just the egg on faces would be worth it, and his name would go down in history as an acronym: One Big Ass Mistake America.

narciso,

If they realized what was going on, they would meltdown like Harry Mudd's androids.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

Exactly right, Extraneus.

Obama is such a liar. Here's that Selma speech, posted by libs, that is full of lies. Phony accent, lies,...& the people sitting there are just nodding their heads & sayin' "amen" to a bunch of lies.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdYByptC8mY

a comment at the video - "Oabma is lying. The 1959 airlift was organized by Tom Mboya, and airlifted 81 Kenyans, including Obama Sr. The Kennedys did not get involved until July 26, 1960...after Obama Sr was already in Hawaii. The Kennedys donated $100,000 to help with the second airlift. The Selma march across the bridge took place in 1965. Obama was born Aug 4, 1961. Do your research. The above are facts that prove Obama is a liar. I am glad this speech was put on you tube...it exposes Obama as a liar."

narciso,

They still insist there are five lights, Janet only the full clockwork orange will work.

boricuafudd

Extraneus-

I agree but this is another reason why I feel that should such evidence exist it will not not see the light of day, not for many years.

The amount of deception, collaboration or just pure willful ignorance that would be required will touch many people, powerful people.

Not to mention the damage that it will do to the country, not to say that he is not damaging enough. But I could see constitutional challenges to anything that he signed as President, for instance.

Threadkiller

The Founding Fathers wrote the eligibility requirements with the express intent of allowing a nation to throw egg in the face of a foreigner.

I imagine the school admins would not be too happy to know you understand CC better than they do.

I received a copy of a letter yesterday from the head of one of the largest companies to a state governor. It informed him they would not be hiring employees from that state if they did not get back on board with CC.

Especially meaningful as I am reading the 1939 book The Vampire Economy at the moment.

No it's not, TK, the problem lay in what he lectured on at Chicago, what he did as a community organizer, that should have kept him out, but McCain dropped the ball,

I'm not a birther, and don't get involved in the arguments, but I think it would be great if some evidence were uncovered and the whole country found that, in the ridiculous swoon over this fraud, we'd accidentally elected a foreigner.

He'd just say he didn't know. "My mother always told me I was born in Hawaii because she knew I would be discriminated against in racist American if I was a foreigner."

boricuafudd

Narc

Absolutely, but not only did McCain dropped the ball but the media helped to concealed everything or to downplay it.

What grates me the most was he was re-elected after, by then nobody cared. Now many are saying if we only knew, it was there all the time no one was listening.

narciso,

Our local Top Gal scribe in my fishwrap, Dockery, reads the script so well, it must be method,

Don't give them any ideas!

Though if that were to happen, I fear that there are many who would see that as a legitimate excuse. Not only that but would defend him on that basis.

We have a LIVE STREAM of the Nelson Mandela funeral and memorial posted now on Common Cents:

No you don't. A "live stream" is what happens when you run video as the event is taking place. Even with the Einsteiniean rejection of simultaneity, that's not a live stream unless you are at least 65 billion miles away.

Which would be too much to hope for.

"Perhaps Fuddy regretted and became talkative."

I imagine you'd feel a teensy bit better if there were a shred of evidence of that having happened.

Consider: the conspirators are so clever and so omnipotent that they can arrange the crash of a Cessna with ten people aboard, have all ten survive the crash, but poor Ms. Fuddy perishes in her life jacket. Just don't ask them to build a website.

Danube on iPad

"But I could see constitutional challenges to anything that he signed as President, for instance."

And you would see them summarily dismissed by every court in this land.

narciso,

A fair point, only statements say at the AFLCIO, or SEIU or at fundraisers, like 'the bitter clingers' statement really count,

narciso,

Reception from the Oort cloud, is not that sharp, Charlie.

Danube on iPad

"To change the subject, get people talking about a conspiracy"

Right. Just watch, as all the news media cease coverage of Obamacare and focus, laser-like, on the conspiracy.

"To discredit anyone that suggest or covers the story as a conspiracy"

They do a pretty bang-up job of that on their own.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

Good Lord, ChaCo, what's your problem?

If the title of Orwell's book were 2014, Winston Smith's MiniTru assignment would be at the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia, shaving tenths off historical temperature records and eliminating any references to the Medieval or Roman warming periods from historical records.

The SkyDragon may be in worse shape than Obama. Changing the name to Nessie and diving for the briny deep doesn't appear to be working.

"HONOLULU (AP) — After a 70-year-old Hawaii man survived a flight that crash-landed in Hawaii waters, he swam about a half-mile in 6-foot waves to Molokai's rugged shoreline, thinking the eight others aboard the small commercial plane were fine bobbing in their life vests, awaiting rescue.

C. Phillip Hollstein Jr. said Friday he was surprised to learn later that one of the travelers was killed, Hawaii Health Director Loretta Fuddy. The others on board suffered only minor injuries.

When the lone engine of the small plane failed, the nine people on board stayed calm as the aircraft glided toward the ocean and made a remarkably smooth belly landing, Hollstein recounted.

He said the pilot, Clyde Kawasaki, expertly maneuvered the plane after the engine failed, avoiding what could have been a catastrophic impact on the water.

"He did everything right," Hollstein said. "He set it up for the best crash-landing you could do."

The engine on Makani Kai Air's 2002 Cessna Grand Caravan turboprop cut out less than a minute after takeoff from the island of Molokai on Wednesday afternoon, just as the plane was making a turn toward its destination of Honolulu, Hollstein said.

There was a "muffled bang," he said, and "then we were a glider."

"Everyone was real quiet. We hit (the water), and it was all about getting the belts off," Hollstein said. People put on life jackets and remained in the plane until it started sinking, he said.

"There wasn't panic or anything. It was very orderly. It wasn't like any of the movies or the TV shows," Hollstein said.

Hollstein swam for shore when he saw that everyone was out of the plane, guessing it took 90 minutes.

Fuddy, who gained attention after deciding to publicly release President Barack Obama's Hawaii birth certificate in 2011 to rebut claims he was not born in the United States, was clinging to the hand of her deputy, Keith Yamamoto."

That courts may deny the challenge will not some from trying. A variation of the "Clean hands doctrine", unclean in these case.

Agreed, but conspiracy theories are specially good for making people look stupid and Obama can use it to claim that he is being persecuted by CP nuts.
