It boils down to Colton having two questions:
!) There are over 450,000 unemployed Veterans living in the United States. What steps can be taken to utilize our select retired military in this capacity?
2) How can we get select faculty trained and armed to give them a fighting chance, if GOD forbid, there is another attack?
CNN substituted with their own question:
Have we thought about having a class for teachers who are willing to be armed trained to carry on campus?
NDP leader Jagmeet Singh thinks the presumption of innocence is strictly for the courts. Would it follow that if anyone accuses Mr. Singh of a wrongdoing, then he must resign immediately? Whether he is guilty or not --- or whether the charge is true --- becomes irrelevant with that premise missing.
8-Year Old: Well, I mean you can take a baseball, but not a
bat. Or a Lacrosse racquet. They are weapons. Not even a hockey stick. And you
can’t take trading cards because if you get a good deal in a trade, it may
cause a fight. And you can play tag, but there is no touching allowed.
8-Year Old: And you can’t even use a small bouncy ball. But
you can use cell phones and tablets.
Evil Evil Airlines. It would be easy to say when you book your flight ... your ticket is in the overbooked zone. Chances are 95.55% you'll get on, but a slight chance you won't. For the ones who booked before that you are guaranteed. It's not rocket science. It's just being human. EVIL EVIL AIRLINES
Got me self down to the big city. I think
there be a gazillion people living there. It be an amazing thing to figure out
how they all get water. Looks like there is a trillion houses all around and
they all got water piped right to their sink. I wonder what guy has that job.
It be a real huge feat I thinks.
Anyhow it be tough down there. I don’t know
how folks figure things out. So much change going on and so very fast.
I was in a nice car and I wanted to find out
what kind it was so I leaned over gently to the driver’s side to take a peek at
what was written on the steering wheel. In the old days it had Ford or Toyota on it and you could figure by that.
But this car had the strangest name, it is called an Airbag. Now, whoever heard
of a car by that name? Must be a cousin of the Dirtbag I drive, I reckon.
Then I got given one of those Cellar Phoney
things. It be so tiny. I couldn’t figure out where to talk. And when I did and
the talking was all done, I couldn’t figure out how to turn it off. The driver
said ‘hit’ the red button.
Well, there was lots of red buttons it
seemed to me. So I hit them all. But nothing seemed to go well. Soon, I was
hitting all the buttons of all the colours and that little Cellar Phoney thing
was making all kinds of big sounds. It was buzzing and beeping and playing
songs like mad. I think I even heard a national anthem.
I was getting kind of panicky when the
driver yelled, “Just get rid of that thing!”
So I did. I fired it out the open car window.
Well, that made things quiet. A bit too
quiet actually. I know I shouldn’t have done that. But hey, I was under
The driver didn’t say anything exactly. He
just kind of turned white and made frequent utterings that sounded like a cross
between a gasp and a muffled explosion.
When I got to the house where I be staying,
there was this cat there. It was an indoor cat. Seems to me cats shouldn’t be
indoor cats. They ought to be outside chasing mice and birds and stuff like
that. Otherwise they get weird.
This house had a big fridge with a freezer
on top. On top of that there was a microwave. There was only about an inch in
front of the microwave and then the freezer door which was about two inches
Well, I was opening up the freezer door to
get some ice cream out. No one had told me that the cat was sleeping on those
three inches on top of the freezer. Who would have figured that?
I tell you that cat was suddenly just
sleeping in midair and they don’t do that real well. It was just reaching out
in all directions, with all kinds of legs, trying to grab onto to something but
there was nothing to grab onto and it was dropping fast.
It hit the floor kinda hard. I felt so bad.
I kept saying sorry over and over but the cat was sort of miffed and didn’t pay
me no never mind. It had lost its composure. ‘Tis a sad thing to see a cat with
Soon I was tired from all that travelling
and decided to plop myself down on a comfy couch. I don’t see so good, and I
thought I was landing myself on a nice dark blanket. But it turned out it was
that cat again. He ought not to have been there I figure, but there he was
What a kafuffle followed! There was a whole
flurry of activity and noise going on for awhile. The cat wanted to escape fast
and I wanted to get up faster and the whole thing must have looked funny to
those who watched it but to us participating in it, it was kinda traumatic.
The cat ended up on the top part of the
couch with its back arched way up. You should have seen the look it gave me. It
wasn’t mad or anything. It just had that bewildered look that said, “This guy
is dangerous to be around.”
I figured it was the cat’s fault but still I
was so double sorry.
That should have been the end of it but it
You ever throw some wet socks in a dryer for
a few moments?
Well, how would I know that the cat
sometimes sleeps in there if the door is open? It was the rather loud KERPLUNK
KEPLUNK as the dryer went around and around that told me something wasn’t
right. I quick like opened the door and out came the cat. It staggered away
without a sound.
It didn’t stagger side to side either. It
staggered to one side only. Sort of drifted as it walked you might say, until
it hit a wall where it just sagged down on the floor and sighed deeply.
Well now, I feel badly about all that. Like
I was not in my element at all. Everything I did seemed to cause trouble.
Sure is good to be back in the mountains
with the cool night air and open sky and singing birds and things. I think I
will just stay here awhile and let those city folks be.
Still, it is amazing that all those people
can get water to all their houses and never run out. Some awesome logistics
there. Someone did good work.
