    stop the silly games Sangha

    we both have been around too long for this stupid nonsense. You will never quite come out and say something-rather you will insinuate it so you can fall back on this defense

    you think its proper for pharmacists to be disarmed

    So you're going to run away from your own words and refuse to back them up.

    I'm not at all surprised.

    Banks
    Quick pay shops
    Jewelry stores
    Museums
    Any and all Fed / State buildings
    Airports
    Gas Stations

    All of these places have screening measures or security equipment/etc and most have hired security ON HAND at ALL TIMES.

    But pharmacies - who are experiencing higher and higher rates of drug related crime - still haven't done a single thing to improve the safety for other customers and their pharmacists/other attendants.

    Not a single damned thing.

    No glass windows. No security doors. No security breach barriers (which instantly activate when a button is pushed) No security clearance required to get in back (key codes that can be viewed from across the store doesn't count). . . and so on, so forth.
    I know of very few that have the pharmacy encased in bullet proof glass and use a metal locking door to get in and out, but that's very few. Truthfully it seems that they take greater steps at preventing employee theft (which does happen) than preventing burglary or armed robbery. I really wish that greater security measures were taken, robberies happen more frequently than people may think. I think if the store is going to have a "no guns" policy they should at least hire an armed security guard or allow the managers/pharmacist in charge to carry one.

    we both know what your intention was and what you were insinuating.

    There is no need for you to repeat that you're unwilling to support your dishonest claim with a quote

    But since you posted another lie, I challenge you to quote where I made any insinuation or admit that your claim is a lie

    There was a massive shortage in the early 2000's and some schools started up new pharmacy programs. Then in 2008 the market went downhill a bit. There aren't really any 50k sign on bonuses or free cars anymore but it's still a good paying field and salaries have held. For certain areas there are some saturation issues, but community pharmacies and healthcare in general was hit by the recession and is awaiting the impact of the ACA. In my area there is big growth for clinical pharmacy jobs (which I want to do) and the salaries are still pretty high.

    My wife and I have discussed over and over - and in practical terms - that we go down fighting if it comes to it. When far offshore, there is a remote but real prospect the "bad guys" will come along. We have a no-surrender policy even if outgunned and outnumbered, caught by surprise. We even have discussed the horror senario of our children along. Still, we go down fighting, all of us, regardless of hostages taken in this or not. We see it as the best chance of any of us surviving and if death is inevitable we'd rather it be fight-fast rather than torturously slow. I've seen torturously slow (won't elaborate). ANY sane person would do ANYTHING to avoid that, even if the odds were less in your favor fighting, but assuring you don't meet that manner of death.

    Unfortunately, people don't have ESP to form a collective attack. Thus one person - even sometimes with just a knife - can get many people to surrender, to being hogtied so to speak, than then systematically assaulted, abused, tortured and killed - where in a rush most if not all would survive.

    I can not count the HUNDREDS probably times I've talked by daughter thru how she should take being shot, stabbed, anything rather than being kidnapped. If the person will kill her there, he's going to do it out there all alone - maybe slowly and horribly and with no chance of help ever coming.

    If a person held a gun to me to rob me, he gets whatever he wants UNTIL he wants me constrained physically or taken somewhere. Then, even if a million to 1 odds, it's time to fight. Win or lose. But never become physically helpless.

    I have been clear.

    Your post is dishonest

    That is why you won't support your claims with evidence....because you have none....because you made it up
