Shapley! The reports from Afghanistan didn't NAME the school your wife works at! Thats the POINT!!!!!!We go from yellow to orange alerts, and I still get up every morning, see my wife off to her job (in a public school building), take my son to his school, and then go to work. We can't let the threat of terrorism disrupt our lives, or the terrorists have won.
WE have to keep OUR wits.The point is, we have to keep our wits. School administrators and politicians don't always have the answers
Heard it for the first time this morning. (No cable tee hee). I'm suspicious now.Did you see the article on CNN about it? How they determined that the information belonged to an individual. . .not a group. . .and they said that it wasn't a threat. . .
” About the only thing we gave practically no thought to was to do nothing and hope everything turns out OK. Chances are, absolutely nothing unusual will happen at either school.”"We are not fighting so that you will offer us something. We are fighting to eliminate you."
Do you have any reason to think your knowledge regarding terrorism is more complete than mine?1. Do you have any reason to believe that the threat is going to go away after the election?
Your assumption that my husband and I had not considered such is fallacy and patronizing. I can only understand it to be so because I doubt you are sincerely interested in our method of assessment and planning.2. Are you going to carry a weapon on that school bus and while you stand guard?
You don't win a fight because you are more motivated (angrier?), stronger, nor least of all, morally right.You’re right to be angry, you just need to be able to channel the anger productively.
There is deterrence now?Originally posted by Haggis:
What's missing is the incentive for any nuclear-armed terrorist group not to incinerate an American city; there’s no deterrence.
You've read the 9/11 report, right? If this is in fact the Bush administration's goal, how come we haven't landed World Enemy #1?Originally posted by President George W. Bush, Leader of the Free World:
We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism.
The part that I took as condescention was not the assumption that I couldn't use a gun, but the assumption that I would not have considered the need for one.RC,
Regardless of our differences, if you are in a state that permits conceal handguns, take a course learn to use a handgun (I assume you already don’t, if you do then I’m being inadvertently condescending and apologize )
