#6432: They don't pay attention, that's why.

Besides, history is boring!

That image basically says, "We're against the wrong kind of gun violence!" They're not against mass murder, not idolizing Ernesto "Che" Guevara like that; they're against personal ownership of firearms like their hero was. The think the state should have a monopoly on violence.

Which, by the way, is completely typical for the anti-gun crowd.

I probably should add that it's the teachers who put the poster up, not the kids they're brainwashing, but I'd wager the teachers don't know any more about Guevara's personality than their students do.

Speaking of "completely typical", this:

Ocasional-Cortex is probably one of the most vapid people ever elected to Congress, and that's really saying something, because this country has elected some real winners to the House of Representatives, let me tell you.

Wasn't that guy who talked about the dangers of Guam tipping over because of the US military presence there, wasn't he a congressdunce? Well, Ms. Occasional-Cortex has him beat in the "stupid" department. She hasn't even taken office yet and she's already emitted some humdingers, and when questioned about what the three branches of government, she couldn't answer. It's amazing.

Or would be if it weren't so tragic.

Complaining about how oppressed she is, rich girl bloviates about her life of ease and comfort. *rolleyes*

I'm going to get this out of the way now: I don't care about the Khashoggi murder.

He wasn't an American; he was Saudi. He was killed by the Saudi government inside Saudi Arabia; any islamic country is, by definition, a savage and brutal place. He was a reporter, which is why the media is all up in arms over it.

When a rabid dog bites someone, it's not news. Ditto for a reporter being killed who is critical of his government when he lives in a savage, brutal place.

And that's without me digging into it. I've seen bits and pieces here about Khashoggi's politics, and I've seen enough information that suggests he was involved with terrorism, one way or another--either helping, or cheerleading--that whatever nascent interest I might have had in the story was snuffed out.

Well, it's raining outside, so the driveway is not going to get raked. I'm going to see what I can do with the garage, but I'm not very optimistic.
