Subject: Re: [mlathemods] Re: message #3622 adding 2 cents worth 2more cents worthI am going to have to make a new 5 foot walking stick like I used years ago. Have almost gotten run over twice lately by chollos making a sudden turn either left or right with people in the cross walk! Might use 1/2" pipe with rubber boots over the end caps.JWELong Beach, CA
My $2 worth (inflation adjusted, it's about $0.02) Once they get the guns gone, they'll go after knives, and so on...
Personally, I've used a pencil as a weapon, not actually on a person, but as a promise... I was in 7th grade, and there were a bunch of other kids who liked to pick on the kid who sat through recesses reading. One day, I got tired of it, and took my pencil and drove it an inch into the brick wall I was leaning against, while looking the ringleader in the eye. They all decided I was too crazy for them to deal with, and left. Didn't ever bother me again, either.
These days, that would probably get me suspended, too.
As I've told my kids, weapons are tools, and tools are means of applying force. A rolled up newspaper can be a weapon in hands that know how to use it, and controlled by a brain that is willing to do so.
Likewise, hammers, baseball bats, and random lengths of pipe. ;)
Bill in OKC <----- probably done pontificating for the day...

Hello, Brian; glad to see you're still sharp! Hope you are well.
It will be interesting to see how much farther those repugs/rethugs/etc.,
will try to push the "envelopes". They have certainly done an interesting
job, so far; even calling for child labor laws to be loosened. (Although,
in Wisconsin, the Union busting didn't go so far as to destroy the fire
fighter's Unions [for now], since they voted for the Gov., who promised
"many great things". LOL
They have even"'discovered' that a stagnant economy is fab for the elites.

this is often confusing for non-Americans so I'll go over the history behind
you see we've also used the phrase 'just to the right of Hitler' to describe
ultra authoritarian types .but a couple dozen years ago the republican party
hard right turn and one of them realized that that phrase didn't look so
you've decided to brand yourself as a
(yes that's all one word)
so rather than changing their own views to something less unpleasant they
would be easier to change Hitlers views ,since he wasn't around to defend
and they started this whole new mythology about Hitler being a liberal
if Hitler had a grave he'd be rolling in it... with laughter
