Beyond muskets

Some say after a horrifying day like today at Ft. Lauderdale Airport is the wrong time to talk about the incredible reverence we have for gun rights in this country. But if not now, when?

As some call to add security around airport perimeters, important to remember, alleged gunman didn’t storm airport, he flew in as passenger.


Just guessing our founding fathers never imagined a world where it would be legal to check a gun AND ammunition on an airplane.

Meanwhile in North Carolina, an 11-year-old boy was showing his 6-year-old cousin the shotgun he got for Christmas. Police say the gun accidentally went off and the girl was fatally shot. #ifonlyshewasarmed

The average NCAA college football game last year was 3 hours and, 24 minutes. While most people, including colleges and conference commissioners think that’s too long, ESPN reports “the biggest challenge, however, is determining how to shorten the games.”
More specifically trying to get the games under 3 hours and still keep 90 minutes of commercials.


Atlanta Hawks GM Wes Wilcox apologized after joking at a season ticket holder meeting “I know you guys may be angry with me, but I’m used to it because I have a black wife and three mixed kids, so I’m used to people being angry and argumentative.”
Proving once again that money and power are no guarantee against #cantfixstupid

And with all the problems of the world today, even the Cleveland Cavaliers are not immune. Lebron James this morning “We got to get a point guard.”


Wonder how many #Warriors & #Grizzlies fans turned off Friday night’s game after 3 quarters? To quote Julia Roberts in  Pretty Woman – “Mistake, big mistake.”

So Wikileaks has tweeted – “We are thinking of making an online database with all “verified” twitter accounts & their family/job/financial/housing relationships.”
What could possibly go wrong?

So Mexico will pay the U.S. back for the #GreatWall?” Is this the sort of planning that got all of those Trump companies into bankruptcy?


Trump doesn’t have time for intelligence briefings but he does have time to get involved in a state race for the head of the GOP in Ohio. He made personal phone calls and sent letters for a woman who supported him to unseat the current chair, a Kasich supporter who had been successful for the party but was lukewarm at best for Trump.
So good to see the President-Elect acting Presidential and above petty vindictiveness.

But yeah, Trump is so  focusing on the important issues facing our country.
Two tweets from this morning: “Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got “swamped” (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT. So much for….being a movie star-and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1. But who cares, he supported Kasich & Hillary”
