A homogeneous brain-washed bunch of group thinkers

I’d never heard of her before, and you probably haven’t either, but Sandra Bernhard (an actress, I hear) wants to be the one that does the thinking for the women who voted for Trump.

After all, says Bernhard, these Trump-voting women are not “able to think for themselves”, because they are “under the thumb of [their] husband[s].”

Thank goodness these women now have Bernhard to tell them who to vote for and what to believe.

If only Bernhard could think for her self.

Home invader cracks homeowner’s skull but doesn’t live to tell about it

… a home … was targeted for a Wednesday night home invasion robbery that turned fatal for one of the alleged robbers….

Homeowner Brent Bishop, 43, was away from his residence when two strange men entered through a rear door and struck his wife in the face. Moments later, Bishop arrived and noticed that the rear door was open. When he entered the kitchen, Bishop was struck on the head with a blunt object. He was ordered to open his gun safe and the robbers removed three long guns and a pistol. As this was occurring, Bishop’s wife fled to a neighbor’s house. The two robbers then left with the guns.

Bishop, unsure where his wife was, went to another room in the house and retrieved a pistol. He was outside looking for his wife when he encountered the robbers. During the ensuing altercation, Bishop fired on them, fatally wounding Adams. The second robber dropped the long guns and the pistol that had been taken from the safe and ran away. He remains at large.

Gregg Popovich, we have a lot to protect too

Gregg Popovich, head coach of the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs, lives in a  beautiful home in an affluent neighborhood in San Antonio. He can afford to, with an annual salary in excess of $6 million dollars.

Without a doubt, Popovich’s home has an expensive, advanced, modern security system. He can afford it. And when he’s at work, Popovich has armed security guards watching his back. Possibly he has his own armed bodyguard, like many of the NBA players he and his colleagues coach.

They can afford to. And Popovich and the other NBA coaches and celebrities have a lot to protect.

19 shots too many

“All he had was a cellphone,” said 10-year-old Terrell Wilson to the Sacramento City Council. “20 shots over a cellphone.”

If only it were that simple, then the outrage over the killing of Stephon Clark could be justified.

But, as usual when Black Lives Matter, it simply isn’t that simple.

School shootings less common than in the past

From News @ Northeastern, a publication of Northeastern University
The deadly school shooting this month in Parkland, Florida, has ignited national outrage and calls for action on gun reform. But while certain policies may help decrease gun violence in general, it’s unlikely that any of them will prevent mass school shootings, according to James Alan Fox, the Lipman Family Professor of Criminology, Law, and Public Policy at Northeastern….
Fox used data collected by USA Today, the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Report, Congressional Research Service, Gun Violence Archive, Stanford Geospatial Center and Stanford Libraries, Mother Jones, Everytown for Gun Safety, and a NYPD report on active shooters.
Four times the number of children were killed in schools in the early 1990s than today, Fox said. “There is not an epidemic of school shootings,” he said, adding that more kids are killed each year from pool drownings or bicycle accidents. There are around 55 million school children in the United States, and on average over the past 25 years, about 10 students per year were killed by gunfire at school, according to Fox and Fridel’s research….
