  1. It makes me wonder about the thinking process of any group of people that use a woman that was shot in the head, has limited function and difficulty speaking as a spokesperson.

    Personally, I think they’re up to something, but in reality, they might really be dumbasses…although it probably doesn’t make a difference.

  2. The historical record waaay leans toward “The Worst and Dumbest”. Which————-also———-don`t work! I submit the OBoBo Administration as the most recent exhibit! Then there are:
    1. Nork
    2. France

    4. Egypt
    5. All of South America
    6. Spain

  4. DougM,

    1st story – I read somewhere that the bottom 10% of college entrants are directed/steered into the Education degree career path. After reading that story, I suspect the bottom 1% are steered towards the BATFE.

    2nd item – Perhaps you would consider gathering together some of your fellow firearms instructors, and filming a response video? Office shooter, banging off rounds – until someone shoots the malefactor. 30 second video, tops.

  5. I heard this on Beck this morning. If you listen to it you’ll hear someone saying “Stop recording” several times.

    I just wonder was that someone from the 49ers organization that realized what was happening?

    Those who can’t “do” teach. Those who can’t “teach,” either … govern.
    (What? Nah, prob’ly not original, but so what. Remember, Missy lets me play in her sandbox, here, just to entertain myself. And possibly to keep me off the streets.)

  7. Corollary #5: Incompetence will eventually be accepted by society as the norm.

    It already is. In fact, it’s celebrated.

  8. Sadly, Justin, I remember the El Ed majors were the top 50% of “party all the time” students, despite being a very, very small part of the student population.
    As a college student, I didn’t look forward to the day my kids would have those El Ed majors as teachers. For the most part, we lucked out, but there have been some real losers in middle and high school.

  9. ^ Sondra (7) …#5 Incompetence… be accepted …as the norm. It already is….
    Beat me to it , partially.
    I wanted to amend all six corollaries, substituting the past or present tense “is” or “has” for future tense “will”.

    Wellp, okay, so we’re officially at “eventually.”
    That must’a happened just after “before you know it.”
    I must not’a been pain’ attention.

  12. I’m still trying to get my head around DHS thinking we should bring scissors to a gunfight.
