Batman Shooting

Folks I am really getting sick of watching the news dance in the blood of these poor folks.  I am sorry there was a shooting, and I grave for the families, they are in my prayers but really now can we have a reality check?

This guy put a lot of thought and prep into this. . . .no one noticed?  And the news folks are taking about Columbine. . . Like it has any connection other than being in the same state.  I am sure the calls for gun control will be quick to follow as if that would have stopped this.

Folks stop focusing on the tool.  We need to know why he did this and how he kept it secret. 

The gun is not the issue.  He had tear gas, gas mask and bullet proof vest. . .  I am told the theater was a gun free zone, so it's illegal to have a gun in the theater. . . Ya, that worked about as well as the other gun free zones we have. . He was going to do this no matter what.  Would you be happier if he used a pipe bomb or Molotov cocktail?  Killing is illegal and he had no problems planning that - you think he would have cared if his weapon of choice was illegal too?

As for the gun free zones, when will we grow up and admit that a gun free zone has never saved a life, and if anything puts us all in danger since these nuts know that if they attack there no one has the tools to stop them.  Reality time - a gun free zone does nothing but insure the attacker gets free time to shoot until the cops can get there. . .  .nothing more.

I pray for the victims and their families. . . And I pray that we will not let the anti rights crowd use this to distract us from the real issue of what was wrong with this nut that caused him to do this.  The tool used is irrelevant.

What really happened in the Batman Shootings is the natural outcome when people are promised something of value, after successfully completing a difficult task, and that promise is nothing less than puffery nor more than...a lie.

I have no doubt that many more than seventy or eighty young Americans, after a most successfully completed degree program and being only able (at best) to secure positions that they were vastly overqualified to hold, have committed suicide. Now, most folks, when pushed to wits end will suffer though, some end it all and some attempt to end all.

They [Capital T]need to stop lying to people about the, fictional, benefits of higher education and this one problem will be ended; it’s just as Noam Comsky states, “If you don’t like terrorism, stop being terrorists,” (or as I put it)

of course, that would require an actual civilization thus is impossible.

The children, now traumatized or desensitized, are much more likely to die from the lies of Corporate Education THAN from a deranged, via CE, person’s actions. Dead from the actions of a coldly calculating society OR a single “Unit” is still just as dead.

Tor this is also true, although I have not heard any reasons given by the NUT ( I won't give him fame using his name)

I remember working at a company that required an Engineering degree just to do a tech job so they could say they had engineers. . . all part of the game.

No, we have dumbed down High School and now expect college degrees to fix it.

We have also raised kids with sports games and no score, everyone gets a medal at the end. They are not taught how to deal with failure and they have no way to cope.

Life is not fair, time our kids are raised to know and deal with it.
