  1. I know a lot of people who handle firearms quite proficiently. But I’m not so sure of their competency to design a curriculum. Do you view the skill sets as comparable? Because if they’re not, your metaphor is just a cute sound bite, without any real relevance. I hasten to add once again, don’t interpret this as my advocating any particular position in this debate.
  2. I’ve heard statistics in the wake of the recent well-publicized mass shootings that “[insert really high percentage] of the American an people want meaningful gun control, such as more and better background checks, closing gun show loopholes, magazine size limits, banning “assault” weapons, ad infinitum.” I don’t believe them any more than I believe the statistics I hear coming from the other side. I’m not advocating for anything. Just offering my opinion that none of that can come to pass with SCOTUS composed as is, and Congress being what it is. Except, there is a clear path to significant reform. Notice I didn’t say an “easy” path. Repeal the Second Amendment, or at least amend it. It’s been done before. The 21st Amendment repealed the 18th Amendment (Prohibition). There are basically 4 ways to do this: The proposed Amendment passes Congress by a 2/3 supermajority, and is ratified by either 3/4 of the state legislatures or special conventions held in 3/4 of the states, or the proposed Amendment is passed at a national convention called by congress when requested by 2/3 of the states, and then ratified by either 3/4 of the state legislatures or special conventions held in 3/4 of the states. If, the support for radical gun control is as widespread as some claim, why isn’t there movement in this direction?
  3. You mean, in addition to the fact that many teachers are mentally unstable? 😂🤣
  4. Having seen Zionsville up close each of the last two seasons, I agree with you 100%. As long as they have coaching continuity, they’ll rise to the top. They are so organized, disciplined, and well-coached that it translates well from class to class. If they’re not there already, they’ll soon be in “reload” mode as opposed to “rebuild.”
  5. I don’t know…. I’ve known some teachers I was pretty sure were mentally unbalanced, to put it politely. 🤣
  6. One might assume that … but just the raw numbers, standing alone, don’t support that conclusion. There are multiple alternative explanations that are just as likely. Lack of critical analysis is a side effect of such a dogmatic, agenda-driven approach.
  7. So, you’ve concluded that, because there is a large voter turnout, the law does not function to suppress voting?
  8. Irish also host the “Dabo NIL Whiners” this season. That should be interesting.
  9. Saw that movie the night before my first — and only — marathon. I know that’s a bit trite, but I was pretty desperate at that point.
  10. All I will say about this is beware the Law of Unintended Consequences.
