Use deadly force in schools

Grandfatherly Dan Flynn wants to kill students

Texas state Rep. Dan Flynn introduced a bill to allow deadly force in case of fear of bodily harm or harm to school property. Teachers are already allowed to have firearms in school and this would make it a whole lot easier to use them. To make matter worse, civil immunity would be granted to those who use deadly force, meaning they would not be liable for the injury or death of student.

Time for a mental evaluation of all teachers, administrators, bus drivers and especially Dan Flynn.

Such a bill could have disastrous consequences for students of color. A coalition of civil rights organizations found that black and Latino students face much higher rates of disciplinary action in schools, which exacerbates the so-called school-to-prison pipeline. By extension, if students of color are already disproportionately targeted by school authorities for their behavior, they could also become the targets of deadly force used by educators.

Bobby Jindal - Another fear mongering GOP jerk

Bobby Jindal - aka Alfred E Neuman
hasn't got a clue

This idiot must get his news from FOX because he sure didn't get this right. Talking to a group in England he's claiming there are "No Go" zones in Britain where Muslim Sharia law trumps British law and police and commoners don't go there. This is after FOX News has apologized 3 times when their "resident terrorist expert" said the same thing. Poor Bobby/Alfred.

Getting back to Gov. Jindal, one has to wonder what prompted his ignorant outburst. Was this a lame attempt to play into the broad public fears of radical Islam that have arisen in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo killings? If so, that's not good enough for a politician with any shred of integrity.

In my view, Jindal immediately disqualified himself from ever holding a national political office by making such a bizarre statement, though it hasn't stopped any number of American politicians with bizarre notions from winning major national offices in the past. Such behavior does, however, embarrass this country in the court of world opinion.

Fox News over the top again

I swear I've seen this Jeanine Pirro on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills with that hair and makeup. She's not totally wrong but the fear mongering rant is and it's exactly in Fox News style.

If you didn't think Fox News could turn up the crazy anymore, meet host Jeanine Pirro. The Ann Taylor-clad freedom fighter was in fiery form Saturday night on Justice with Judge Jeanine, ranting about everything from the Islamic State group to accusing President Barack Obama of placing this country under Sharia.

Just because Pirro is no dummy — she's a former New York state prosecutor and judge — doesn't immunize her from the cloud of xenophobic insanity permeating the network's studios: "You're in danger, I'm in danger," Pirro exclaimed, ratcheting up the Fox News' paranoia levels to epic highs. "We're at war."

Can you believe Rand Paul for President 2018 - WTF

What the hell is this country  thinking to even allow this asshole on the podium.   This guy is way right of the Tea Party.    Just look who he hired as an aide -- Jack Hunter

Jack Hunter, the self-proclaimed “Southern Avenger” who made the leap from radio shock jock to Rand Paul aide, announced his resignation Monday amid heightened scrutiny of his previous career as a champion of neo-Confederate ideology.
Rand Paul aide resigns over neo-Confederate ties despite senator’s support

And here's another .....

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has been leading an earnest—if sometimes awkward—effort to court black voters in the wake of President Obama’s re-election. It was a stretch to begin with, but Paul’s outreach campaign crashed into a wall on Tuesday as news emerged that a staffer is neck-deep in neo-Confederate ideology.

Jack Hunter joined Paul’s staff in 2012 as a social media aide and previously worked on one of Paul’s books. But as the conservative Free Beacon reports, he’s also a former shock jock who went by the moniker “the Southern Avenger” and wore a Confederate flag mask to events. 

Rand Paul can’t understand why black voters don’t vote GOP. Here’s a clue
Surrounded by the crazies in US Government, mostly the GOP, I just had to create my own space to cut and paste and rant a little
