He should! No one is talking about it, because it doesn't enhance the gun control issue.

Sue

So Geraldo Rivera is on F&Fs this AM live from Austin, Texas, telling us that the bomber's motive is Austin is an island of blue in an ocean of red and since the bomber is from outside of the island of blue, well draw your own conclusions. I despise that little turd. He is so ugly I can't imagine him ever being considered a "stud". ::shudder::

Plus he never shuts up Sue.

And the governor of Maryland wants something done, not just our prayers. Will no one ask him what he wants done? Make them tell us they want to repeal the 2nd amendment.

Sue

He does like the sound of his own voice, Jane. I'm guessing we are stuck with him until he dies or I do. Because my campaign to have him removed isn't working. ::sigh::

Latest I can find on Conditt (the bomber).https://www.statesman.com/news/crime--law/authorities-bombing-suspect-was-pflugerville-resident-mark-conditt/CQUCcXNJ9nb2iFs8sSq0pK/

Mixed pronouns but whatever. I despise Rivera.

Meanwhile:

A Broward County Sheriff's deputy has been suspended with pay after authorities say he was found sleeping in his car Monday while on duty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people were killed in a mass shooting last month.

And the media jumped all over the "white" man description very, very early.

The daily caller noted the shooter yesterday was ineligible to get the weapon being 17, fwiw.

We'll wait for the actual statement from general kelly.

Teacher who called military 'lowest of the low' is fired

To me it was what he said, but also that he spends class time ranting about his political beliefs. I wouldn't want a teacher ranting about hating Hillary either.

Tempe police chief says early probe shows no fault by Uber.

Pushing a bicycle laden with plastic shopping bags, a woman abruptly walked from a center median into a lane of traffic and was struck by a self-driving Uber operating in autonomous mode.

“The driver said it was like a flash, the person walked out in front of them,” said Sylvia Moir, police chief in Tempe, Ariz., the location for the first pedestrian fatality involving a self-driving car. “His first alert to the collision was the sound of the collision.”

From viewing the videos, “it’s very clear it would have been difficult to avoid this collision in any kind of mode (autonomous or human-driven) based on how she came from the shadows right into the roadway,” Moir said. The police have not released the videos.

Anyone have Geraldo's address?
I have a package I wanna send him.

political rants, walk out protests, advocacy orgs invited into schools to give programs, watching movies,.....

All of it needs to stop. Get back to core functions. I'm convinced we need to shorten the school day & maybe even finish high school by 10th or 11th grade.
Short & serious.

Sue

You know, that may turn out that it is what it is, but the media, including celebrity reporter Rivera, would have never made that jump before they knew for sure if it was Isis related.

Sue

I know we learned more in the shorter period of time we attended, with more recesses, than kids do today.

Hopefully, CNN will go with comprehensive "lessons learned" coverage about how a good guy with a gun is the best defense against a bad guy with a gun!
No?

In just the last couple of days:

1. OMG! Trump congratulated Putin!!! (So did Obama)

2. OMG! Trump campaign used FB data!!!! (So did Obama)

So tiresome.

Article about doomsday preppers:

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-20/what-do-they-know-we-dont-dc-officials-flock-doomsday-camps

Through memberships and his own cryptocurrency called “Fortitudes,” Miller has raised about $400,000 and established a ranch in West Virginia and Colorado with 10 others planned.

Question: In a SHTF scenario where society has collapsed and a bunker/ranch like this offers a chance of survival, what exactly are you going to do with the cryptocurrency that the prepper is selling? Doesn't cryptocurrency require electricity to power computers, networks, etc?

jimmyk

“But it could have dragged on longer and proven deadlier were it not for the rapid response of a[n armed] school resource officer.”

Fixed. I’m sure CNN’s omission of that in the lead was inadvertent.

henry

I love the assumption that they'll be able to get to their doomsday bunker halfway across the continent if a SHTF scenario occurs.

Brilliant takedown of the vapid and profoundly annoying Steven Pinker.
The only guy to give Graydon Carter a run for his money in the preposterously foppish hairdo competition.

Ah Sue--your accurate description of Jerry Rivers (Geraldo Rivera's birth name before he went the Mexican Fauxcahontas route) as a "little turd" brought a smile to my face. He does tend to beclown himself.

Now as for the Austin bomber being from "outside of Austin" Jerry Rivers screws up again. The dude lived in an Austin suburb. The Daily Mail has a headline describing him as a "devout Christian"--you can't trust those Christians you know if you are a lefty. But you read the article under that headline and there is no mention of anything which would support the "devout Christian" headline.
