If you want to think about gun control as a class issue, would someone run $200 in 1932 through the inflation calculator?

That FedEx facility is the one daddy flew into when he came through here.

So far, some reports as many as 60 injured, but they can't get an exact count because some were driven to the hospital by co-workers in order to save time and ambulance charges.

I hate to say this, but a shooting incident like this could have been predicted due to a number of factors. People have been living in a pressure cooker for the past year and a half at least and under the current administration no relief appears in sight. Add to that the democrats goal of disarming Americans, and you have the perfect storm.

God bless the victims and their families, and give Americans the strength they need to sustain themselves during this seemingly unending attack on our country from enemies at home and abroad.

Miss Marple,

Many times during the past year I've thought of daddy and wished we could have his views on all that is happening. I also thought of Dr J last night and his wonderful comments. I miss them.

Has anyone seen if RattlerGator is posting comments anywhere? I cancelled twitter after they banned his comments.

MissMarple2

Additional facts:

1. Employees are not allowed to carry cell phones into the facility. This has resulted in ahuge number of relatives showing up at the Holiday Inn near the airport where the police have set up a center for relatives.

2. The Indiana legislature passed a bill allowing concealed carry yesterday. I am sure we will hear more about this from the democrats, even though a facility which won't allow cell phones probably would prohibit guns as well.

Barbara,

I have run across RG on a couple of podcast You Tube comments. I wish he would come back here.

Barbara

Miss Marple,

Do they have any details on the number of shooters?

(I think better financial minds than mine should read this story.)

Barbara

Miss Marple,

I wish RG would come back to JOM, too! I enjoyed his comments on Twitter, and was furious when they banned him. There is no place for that type of tyranny in America!

Barbara,

One shooter who apparently killed himself.

Details still confused, as you can tell by reading the local story.

The NYTers who uncritically regurgitated the intel leaker's Russian bounty hoax are Charlie Savage, Eric Schmitt, Michael Schwirtz. If you ever swallow any of their stories ever again, you're the idiot. (And you should've known already because they did the Russia collusion hoax)

SO much money going to local news outlets from the latest COVID bill or from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. So sad to see this formerly reputable news org cater to this paid campaign/infomercial.

Dem mayor Joe Hogsett (former Al Gore flunky) has surfaced to announce he will be at a police press conference later today.

Additional stuff I have picked up from reading comments on Twitter:

One woman was shot in the parking lot.

Shooter entered the building, so it wasn't like he was on the job and suddenly snapped.

Shooter was armed with a rifle, according to witnesses.

One witness said he was shouting in an unknown language. (This witness may be describing something other than a foreign language.) I am wondering about this, though, since the FBI immediately showed up.

If a visiting alien wanted a definition of capitalism I’d show them Indy’s local FedEx employees who are working today.
======================================
This is the level of reporting from our local paper. No bias there, though.

Jane

Lots of businesses, particularly restaurants closing because they can’t get employees. Biden pays them too much to stay home.

The country is done, and our side has done absolutely nothing to stop it.

Morning - ugh.

MissMarple2

Jane,

After watching that clip from Tucker Carlson and learning that even the members of the Freedom Caucus take money from Google, I would have to say our big problems are greed, stupidity, and an absence of shame.

MissMarple2

At least we don't have to worry about Tyrannosaurus rex!

Misleading headline; that's over the entire time they existed, not all at once.

A raptor just landed on a dead branch. Oops, he must have spotted something because he was gone when I looked up.

"A friendship that may become a liability: @AP
explores the relationship between Ron DeSantis and Matt Gaetz."

My reply @sbwTweet:
".@jpaceDC, so @AP has decided that speculation and innuendo is #news. There are no charges, just another unfounded rumor or leak. No surprise that #journalism has been suspended in favor of a #hitjob."

Buckeye

High school kids who want a part time job are making big bucks around here.

Everyday after school is out, a small army arrive at the grocery store to get paid to shop for the old fart’s groceries.

They’re all you see when going through the drive through at the fast food joints.

Everyone is paying at least $15/hr to start.

Time to renew my concealed carry permit and my passport.

I think the concealed carry is a higher priority.

Davod,

Thanks for the information on where RattlerGator is posting!

Just now listening to a radio report where NO information is really given out, no name, no description of weapon, no motive, not even the number of shooters for sure. (Interview with IPD information officer.)

MissMarple2

Now death total is nine. (I assume this is the person who was in critical condition at the hospital.)

Neo

So apparently this is the CDC check-in that you’re supposed to sign up for so they can track any symptoms. This is in the paperwork that the vaccine sites don’t seem to be doing a good job of distributing or letting people know about.

Video at the link. I don't care what she has to say. How can someone who has a Fauci pillow (note bookshelf behind her) be taken seriously?

How can anyone who is a lunatic be taken seriously?
