One reversed their decision...23 more and she wins.


Premature celebration gets no points...

Sooo.... Laura Ingraham's viewership jumps up 20 percent since the liberal boycott.

https://archive.fo/8Xwj1#selection-2279.0-2279.76

I bet those 23 companies would have enjoyed the 20 percent increase in potential buyers. Oh well. That's what happens when you follow a losers idea.

Headed back to the other threads. Can come back to this one after the next school shooting.


Which more than likely won’t occur in one of the schools that decided to have firearms available to approved people on site for protective purposes.


I speak as someone who is a teacher with a doctorate and has also completed significant small arms training to holds a concealed carry permit in Virginia as well as Krav Maga.

I do not want to carry guns in my school, but if tasked with it I would reluctantly do it. There are several colleagues I DO NOT WANT to have a gun in my presence.

Guns do not belong in school. Virginia schools are like impenetrable fortresses...


The county I’m originally from place an armed officer at each school. They showed up in the morning, parked their car in a highly visible location at the school. I imagine for the most part it would be a little boring for the policeman, but they would feel as if they are fulfilling a great duty for their community.

Back in the day Fairfax County had designated police officers for schools, but they were only patrols who went from school to school during the day. I was riding my dirt bike with my friend on the back on school grounds and one showed up and honked his horn at us to come over. I asked my friend what he wanted to do and he said,"Take off!" So, I did. I wasn't tased and charged with six offenses because he didn't catch us.

Lol that does bring back memories from my teens when riding on the back roads was illegal in WV. Just hop on a trail through the woods, and you were good to go. That is as long as the police didn’t know where the trail came out, and could get there before you did.

When Fairfax was being overdeveloped with houses we would go to the new subdivisions and race our bikes on the freshly graded roads before they laid the asphalt. Sometimes the security would show up and then it was on like Donkey Kong. It was totally unfair because no way some semi retired dude driving an F 150 was going to catch some reckless kid on a 125 or 250. We were laughing the whole time while these guys would be bouncing around in their cabs with shovels and tool boxes flying out of the bed while we were screaming "yard sale." They got so mad at us. Go figure.

Ha! No agenda - Just curious - how would you handle it if you discovered that children in your care were doing the exact same thing today?

Of course you have to tell them not to do it. Maybe confiscate the bike for a little while. Inside I would be laughing about it. It is definitely a different world now. The legal consequences would be much worse today then back then.

You can’t encourage such actions as a responsible parent. In my case I don’t have to worry about it. My wife won’t even let me get the kids a mini bike let alone anything that’s powered with something more substantial than a riding lawn mower engine.

That’s just wrong! (Just kidding...you two raise them how you like).

My first ride...age 9. 1978 Honda XR75 (google images...not mine).

Last dirt bike, age 15...1981 Yamaha YZ250.

Both were used...we didn’t have money for new stuff back in those days. Hell we worked on them almost as much as we rode them. Incredible memories.

I never got into four-wheelers. The side-by-sides that are all the rage now are cool for a 47 year old like me...but my 15 year old self would kick dirt in their faces, lol.
