    Those were the good old days. Now it is more like what can my country do for me.

    JFK's election was my first voting experience. It was a great time to be
    young, hopeful and expect great things for America. My Irish Grandmother
    was so excited to see an Irish Catholic man make it to the White House.
    She knew what it was like when the Irish were not so welcomed in this
    country. We were all so proud.

    See Rahm move to Chicago.
    Rahm want to be Mayor.
    See Rahm Run.
    Run, Rahm, Run!

    Oh no.
    Rahm cannot run!
    Rahm got jacked by the appellate court.
    Rahm will appeal again.
    Is Rahm done?

    Oh no.
    Rahm has donations
    He will use that money to appeal.
    Appeal, Rahm, appeal!

    See Chi-town.
    Chi-town politics are fun.
    Rahm and Chi-town politics are fun.

    See Puff.
    See Rahm puff up his chest.
    See Rahm try to run for Mayor.
    Run, Rahm, run!

    See Spot.
    See Chi-town's political history.
    See Chi-town's spotty political history.
    Run, Rham, run!

  5. Last week was a bad week - albeit a short week - for the LA schools.

    One young man brought his backpack to class and set it down a bit too hard - causing the loaded handgun in it to discharge - grazing one classmate in the neck and causing a critical head wound to another.

    A run of the mill "bring your handgun to school" at another campus and a school cop who responded to a call about some riffraff breaking into cars. He was surprised by the bad guy's "one shot to the chest greeting" but thankfully, was saved by his body armor.

    The bad guy was thought to have run onto another school campus. The school was on lock down for hours while 350 cops searched the area.

    Three "lock downs" in a week. How sad. I remember fire drills and tornado drills and even - during the Cuba Missile Crisis - Nuclear Attach Drills.

    Now students learn about lock downs and metal detectors and body armor. The "enemy from within" instead of the "enemy from outside."

    Good training I suppose for going to the Safeway.

    No humans were hurt during the posting of this message.

  7. Odd. Just as I cannot imagine making jokes about Christina Taylor Green, I struggle to find the humor in the violence school children in LA are experiencing.


    Guess I just don't see the "funny" in children being shot.

    This year is safer?! Are you kidding me? Students are getting killed here! This is just wrong. In some neighborhoods it seems like body armor is what it would take to get them safely to and from school. They're getting shot on the streets, they are getting shot on their porches, in cars and even in their homes. They're not safe indoors, let alone outdoors. It's sad and scary.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Should I have posted the site to Hard Corps or Second Chance?

    For the record?

    It's not bullet proof, it's bullet resistant and you can stab a person, wearing a Kevlar vest, with a knife.

    The LAUSD cop that was shot didn't respond to a call, he was on patrol and caught the guy in the act.

    The Accidental Shooter is going to be charged with bringing a gun onto campus - NOT FOR SHOOTING the two kids.

    A rep for the school/PD made that statement on Friday.

    The effing rules give knuckleheads like that a free pass, just like giving ALL THE KIDS on the t-ball team a trophy after the season is over.

    Two other students were also arrested for helping Bat Masterson change his clothes and give him a packpack so he could try to get off campus.

    Not very smart when you have your homework with your name inside the BP w/your gun.

    -------------

    Nothing like this EVER happens in Orange County.

    NEVER.

  11. So who called it "bullet proof"??

    That's right...no one.

    But certainly an attempt to avoid explaining what you find amusing about children being exposed to handgun violence regardless of what county or state or country they live in.

    Please,

    Until you have been shot at you really won't find humor in anything.

    After that, the worst effing day of your life is a piece of cake.

    Try it sometime.

    It's really refreshing.

    What?

    NO Keithy Olbermann stories?

    I was shocked to see him go. I found him to be a refreshing Snarkicist and enjoyed watching the spittle gather at the corners of his mouth.

    Two years of no TV time...he should be refreshed and raring to go in 2013, right on time to see the next president sworn in.

    --------------

    I really enjoyed the news blurb this morning and the sock puppet on FOX saying that Rahm should be allowed to run for mayor.

    His service in D.C. was just like a soldier serving his country overseas.

    Even the prez says he should be able to, I am sure they will find a way to get RE on the ballot.

    When you can spend campaign contributions on lawyers?

    Why not?


    MSNBC news = puppetheads.

    That Mika Bzerthasgjrjghali in the morning is a real peach.

    If that idiot can be on TV, I am submitting my app ASAP.

    Is Rachel M the ratings leader now?

    ---------

    Drinking game tonight?

    Every time BO says "Create Jobs".

  14. You may be watching too many Bruce Willis movies. I feel fairly certain Christina Green found many humorous things before the day she was shot at.

    and you have been shot at??? Tell us all about it.

    The protective vest didn't help this officer.

    I believe people will keep abusing their "gun rights" until America finally
    says enough is enough and enact stronger gun control laws in this country.
