Florida Senate values guns over kids
Tampa Bay Times, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 3/6/2018 9:10:11 AM

By a single vote, the Florida Senate on Monday approved a sweeping response to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas massacre that includes too little gun control and too much emphasis on transforming schools into armed fortresses. Republicans altered an unpopular plan to arm teachers to allow personnel such as principals, counselors and librarians — but not most teachers — to secretly carry guns. That is window dressing for what remains a dangerous plan to put more guns on campuses. Only law enforcement officers should carry guns in schools. The legislation has positive provisions such as raising the age to buy all

Waaaaah! Naturally, this editorial reeks of bovine scatology. They´re inconsolable. And full of it.

The media prefer dead kids and political theatre over solutions that work.

No surprise in their fetid response. How´s about the Florida Senate values the rule of law over a bunch of snowflakes with their collective panties in a wad...?

Public School Administration values teacher bonuses and boondoggle teacher conventions over hiring full-time school security guards.

Absolute media insanity. Childish hysteria. Emotionally charging the "Bad old gun" instead of the people who use them to harm others. There really is not rationality left in these people. They have allowed themselves to fall into the mob mentality and simply find that place comfortable. They do not have to think or reason. They just shout, and go with the flow. I have never seen adult human beings behave this way outside of a mob. It´s actually kind of scary.

Do not give way to the Left´s evil demands. Americans must stay able to defend themselves, their babies and beloved elderly ones. History tells of the millions killed or starved under regimes that legislated away the right to bear arms. It goes on today. BTW, whatever happened to all the arms and high-powered ammo that was purchased by the Obama Administration for NASA, Homeland Security, and others???

FTA- "Only law enforcement officers should carry guns in schools." But only if there are no active shooters in the school that pose any kind of danger to the officers!

The Tampa Bay Timmes values their gun control narravtive over kids. Why should only law enforcement officers carry guns in schools, especially if they are going to be told to Stand Down when it counts. Concealed Carry holders often have much more training and practice than police officers, who only qualify once a year and then rarely touch their guns.

Until the media starts admitting the real problem here, which is Leftist Obama style policies, they will have no credibility on the subject of school shootings.

After 50 years of failed Leftist policies in this country, we are seeing their chickens coming home to roost, and it is going to get uglier before it gets better. Runcie and his ilk built this, and there is no getting around that reality.

If these school shootings stop, our enemies will lose what may very well be the only route to disarming us.
This could delay complete subjugation of US citizens by decades or more.
Also, CPS should check on the author´s children. Maybe one of them is homicidal and the author fears for the homicidal ones safety.

Wonder if the Tampa Bay evening news programs on TV will run with this. It fits their narrative. They were working overtime on the gun control narrative shortly after the shooting. They have already started to move on to trade since Trump announced his tariffs. News has become all politics all the time.

At the Oscars, about 500 armed guards protected the creme de la creme in our society. The Hollywood elite. Yet, we can´t spare one armed guard to protect our children. Why do we consider it appropriate to protect adults that pretend for a living with armed guards but don´t consider do the same for our children?

And we are supposed to be one nation? The left accuses those who agree with many of us of choosing an inanimate object over human life, children no less, and we are supposed to have open honest debate with these people? It is they who have and continue to place children at risk by ignoring harsh realities and imposing their fantasies through the coercive power of government. But I genuinely believe that they are deluded opposed to evil. I’d love to discuss our disparate views of reality but it doesn’t start with either of us accusing the other of being evil willingly sacrificing children for our toys or egos.

They have no intention of facing opposition in an open exchange of differences but rather pick the Alinsky path of demolishing those who dare disagree.

And Tampa Bay Times,...... and the horse you rode in on.

What drivel!!

This article is nothing but an emotional knee-jerk reaction to a serious issue.

Americans used to respect life and respect one another but no more due to liberal beliefs and policies.

Guns are inanimate objects that can be used for good or evil. Address the causes of evil intent, not the tools used to carry out that intent.

What a coincidence, so do I. Kids will do us no good in the Gulag once the dicktaters confiscate our guns except to consume the short supply of food that will make us weak and susceptible to the re-education. I really don´t mind making a few snowflakes mad if it ensures my freedom. I remember what little I knew at age 17 and I´m astonished that the left is dumb enough to try to use these mush-head puppets to try to manipulate us.

When you take a hard look at all the people and organizations that were responsible for the death of these students, they are ALL DEMOCRATS. Every stinking one of them.
The only way of not taking blame for anything, is to deflect responsibility from themselves to whoever and whatever they can. It is the only natural response of guilty people.
Blame Trump, Blame the GOP, Blame the NRA, Blame Guns, blame blame blame until someone starts believing them... and some do.

Well the TBT just placed themselves squarely in the "Fake News" column. No one wants a solution to these SOCIAL issues more than the millions of law abiding gun owners out there. THEY are the one´s who catch all the flak when some Lefty goes off the rails and shots up the neighborhood. Time for the Progressive/Socialists to take responsibility for the degradation THEY have brought upon this nation through their immoral and misguided attempt at turning this nation into the former USSR. They are the TRUE enemies of America.

Pretty much everyone above has properly pegged the TB Times as an incontinently leftist, rotary, rotating, ideological bilge pump, utterly insensible to reason, insular, insulated, contemptuous of learning, self-satisfied, sniffy, snorty, retromingent, holier than thou, colonic projectile thinkers bad performers, fools ... bummers on the breakfast table with tea, toast, and eggs.

The paper´s "Politifact" (yeah, right!) division was actually about to hire the appalling, rabidly portside partisan Orlando Rep. Alan "Die quickly" Grayson as a responsible left of center fact verifier for Politifact when it got out to the public causing an angry reaction, and the offer was quashed. At least I certainly hope so.

The Tampa Bay Times (né St. Petersburg) is a tough read because there´s so much Narrative there. The Hive, always buzzing. But it´s where the Opposition hang out. To know them is to want to make them despondent, dejected, empty, catatonic, quiet, beaten, defeated. Skivvies full.

I miss the old Tampa Tribune, last published and delivered on May 3, 2016, which had a center-right editorial orientation, but got the Pac-man treatment from its across the Bay neighbor.

It takes down the whole site when we have people here calling blacks "apes". That kind of comment speaks more about the commenter than anything else. This is the second time for the same commeter.

I will definitely point out the major problems of violent black inner city culture, but Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams and Clarence Thomas are some of my biggest intellectual heroes and I reject this sort of ignorant characterization.

Bond set at $500,000 for
brother of Parkland school
shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz.
Miami Herald [FL], by David J. Neal    Original Article

A Broward County judge set a $500,000 bond Tuesday for Zachary Cruz, who was caught skateboarding Monday on the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School grounds where brother Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people in February. Prosecutors asked for $750,000. The standard bond for trespassing on school grounds is $25 and Cruz, 18, had paid it, his bond attorney said. "He’s being held because of who he’s related to, not because of what he did," Cruz’s bond attorney argued before Judge Kim Theresa Mollica. Mollica, who also handled Nikolas Cruz’s bond hearing, said Zachary Cruz’s Lake Worth home is to be searched for guns;

The Southern California teacher who called U.S. service members "the lowest of our low" in a video that triggered widespread condemnation - including blunt criticism from the White House - has been fired. The El Rancho Unified School District held a Tuesday night vote to determine the fate of Gregory Salcido, a history teacher at El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera, southeast of Los Angeles. The board’s decision, nearly two months after his comments went viral, was a unanimous: Salcido is out, said Board of Education President Aurora Villon. Salcido has been on unpaid leave since January, and Villon said he would

In the age of #MeToo and #TimesUp, the image of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride’s auction of "wenches" for sale just didn’t seem so funny anymore. The theme park released an updated storyline this week at the Magic Kingdom that features a red-haired female pirate. "Just as Walt Disney embraced and encouraged Disney Parks to ‘keep moving forward’ since the opening of Disneyland Park in 1955, Walt Disney Imagineering has introduced many new characters at Pirates of the Caribbean attraction over the years," a statement on the official Disney parks blog said. The red-haired character was once a wench for sale.

Floridians will not vote on adding gun control measures to the state constitution this year because a state board, citing technical rules, rejected the proposals Wednesday. The 37-member Constitution Review Commission is an obscure yet powerful body that meets every 20 years to propose changes to the Florida constitution which are then put on the November ballot. During a marathon meeting in the Capitol, several commissioners from both parties tried to add three different gun-related amendments to a proposal related to land ownership. Because the deadline to propose original ballot measures passed before the Feb. 14 Parkland massacre, some commissioners hoped to

What Qualifies as an

Former New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn labeled Cynthia Nixon an “unqualified lesbian” after the Sex and the City actress announced a primary challenge to Empire State governor Andrew Cuomo. What makes one an “unqualified lesbian”? Like sanction or cleave, “unqualified” works as its own antonym (or perhaps, to qualify a bit, its own near opposite). Did Quinn mean to call Nixon one unfit for the lesbian label or did she mean to celebrate her as a total, full-blooded lesbian? “Unqualified” strikes ears and eyes as a confusing qualifier. Nixon, on the one hand, drifted into the Sapphic passion at midlife

A couple years ago, salmon passed tuna as the most popular fish in the United States. Our doctors have told us to eat more of it; our fitness and diet regimens have put it in heavy menu rotation. The problem is not all salmon is created equal. More than 90 percent of the fresh salmon eaten in this country comes from giant fish farms, and those farms have problems. Big ones. Here are the facts about America’s favorite fish that you should know but perhaps wish you didn’t. • Large-scale salmon farms in the United States, Canada, Scotland, Norway and Chile have

Hillary Clinton continues to attack President Trump while abroad, this time during an interview with a Dutch news network. During the interview, which took place on March 13, Clinton alleged that Trump is undermining the presidency in exchange for personal and familial gain. “He has undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family,” Clinton said. “Disregarded laws, ethical standards.” “He’s crossed into a territory of behavior and actions that are unpredictable, that are erratic, that are undermining the stability of the global order,” she continued. Clinton came under fire last week during a trip to India when she

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. "The tendency of people to move to cities, either out of desire or perceived necessity, creates a great opportunity. If we managed urbanisation properly, we could nearly remove ourselves from a considerable percentage of

Actors and athletes increasingly using their forums for political activism are turning off viewers, according to a newly released poll. A McLaughlin & Associates/Media Research Center survey released Wednesday found that 44 percent were less likely to watch sports and entertainment shows “because they have become too political.” In addition, 75 percent said they watch sports and entertainment to escape from politics, and “do not want to be bombarded with partisan political messages.” The poll of 1,000 likely voters comes with television ratings plummeting in the last year for high-profile sports and entertainment

One of my liberal friends admitted to me recently that there is a certain virtue to losing gracefully. She was referencing her disappointment with the mean-spirited salvos Hillary Clinton delivered during her recent visit to India, an outburst closer to being disgraceful than full of grace. I’ve been trying to figure Hillary out for almost a half century, ever since I found myself part of an alumnae audience listening to the Wellesley Class of 1969’s graduation spokesperson -- known then as Hillary Rodham -- erupt in condescending anger at the commencement’s guest speaker. Even all those years ago, it was
