Farrah Abraham Celebrates Mother's Day With Guest Appearance At Dallas Tavern -
Farrah Abraham found a unique way to celebrate Mother’s Day. The Teen Mom star turned porn star made a special guest appearance Sunday night at Big Al’s McKinney Avenue Tavern in Dallas and invited…
Fresh off her recent DUI arrest, and the release of her “personal” sex tape, a Dallas bar decides to celebrate “Single Mother’s Day” with an appearance by their chosen icon for the day. What I thought was a satire piece from The Onion was instead a poignant example of greed, irresponsibility, arrogance, depravity, and poor taste being celebrated. “This is why we can’t have nice things.”

I respect the office of the President. I respect the will of the American people. I respect the three branches of our government to act in the best interests of the nation’s populace.
Why do I feel like those who filled these roles did not reciprocate?
Dallas now has a historic center to mark the eight years in which Idiocracy became public policy.
I kindly ask you to knock, as I am watching the Deluxe Edition DVD of “Kicked in the Nuts!”

One step closer to Idiocracy. To paraphrase the clinching gut-punch to intellectual and social equality: “Accept my ostentatious jewelry, and I will become ignorant of history.”
One step closer to Idiocracy... -
At least there will be an objective scale to determine where Fuddrucker’s ranks when it’s eventual name appears…
When considering the tragic actions that have come to the forefront of the national conversation, I would like to present the logical conclusion to the initial action of arming individual security forces at public schools. I have attempted to eliminate any personal opinion, but instead wish to follow the arguments presented by both sides to a conclusion dictated sans emotion.
Violent acts have been committed against individuals and public communities at our nation’s schools. One proposed defense against these heinous events is to place armed defense forces within the schools, with the intent of “one good man with a gun stopping one bad man with a gun.” This would allow no change in gun ownership rights, but instead enable a defense on the “Thin Red Line” that our schools have become.
With this scenario in place, what would occur at a school with an armed guard, when a malevolent individual enters with the intent of using a firearm?
When an individual enters, the armed guard would not know his intent upon entering. He would not be able to stop an expected visitor or known parent from exercising his right to visit the school. He would not be able to stop the individual from carrying a firearm, as a licensed carrier has his Constitutional right to bear a firearm. If the armed guard searches the individual, he cannot disarm the visitor, as this would be a denial of the right to bear arms.
No intent is known, so any action would be a prior restraint (applied to speech) since no action has occurred. Instead, the armed defender must wait until the visitor instead commits an overt act, such as drawing and firing. The outcome might entail casualties throughout an area in the school, or just in a one-to-one gun battle, but the net result would require casualties before the defender would act. Since the 2nd Amendment was written at the time of flintlock muskets, the outcome of only one casualty may have been expected in the 1700s. Today, the ease of use of assault weapons and larger volume magazines would tend to increase these numbers. “Prying it from my cold dead hands” is a phrase that comes to mind.
With this in mind, any action from an armed guard would be at a minimum of one casualty, with potential for more since the assailant’s intent would need to be known before action.
As a result, the defense of schools by arming them would thus include a casualty before any efficacy of the system could be shown, with the net result across a nation of armed schools reaching disturbing numbers before the test case can show robust results.
While this might be disturbing to some, I would point out that Johnathan Swift was prescient in his defense of this action, when he wrote his essay “A Modest Proposal for Preventing the Children of Poor People From Being a Burden to Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Publick” in 1729. Applying the precepts of learned men from the 1700s, regardless of changes to technology or society, is always the best thing to do.
