    Re: School shooting in Maryville, Washington

    Why the **** is this happening? Why the **** is this happening? Why the **** is the happening? Instead of partisan bull****, why aren't we collectively asking, why the **** is this happening, and then honestly and openly seeking an answer, no matter where it leads us?


    Is it a prevalence of guns? Nonsense. Guns were more prevalent per capita in past eras, and this **** was not common.

    Is it video games? I think no, but I don't really know? I mean, I play video games. And I've never shot up a school.

    Is it bullying? Is bullying something new? Has bullying gotten worse? Is it because it's all online now?

    Is it copy catting? Like, gee wiz, my life sucks, I'm gonna go all columbine on someone? Had this latest shooter even heard of columbine?

    What are we doing wrong as parents? How are we erring so badly that are kids are homicidal maniacs?

    Bull**** Mr. "if everyone carried an uzi then this would not have happened."

    To what could you have been referring to? I thought so.

    Honest answer? Most people won't like it.


    We've spent close to 40 years teaching children....

    ... that they're super-special snowflakes who are entitled to everything good...

    ... that they're just highly evolved animals, not immortal souls...

    ... that there is no God, or if there is there is no judgment by him...

    ... that it is okay to kill innocent babies in the womb if they are inconvenient...

    .... that things like the 10 Commandments are outdated and all morality is relative....


    ... and then we wonder why stuff like this happens?

    Half of the things on this list, I believe in, like abortion. I'm also not what you'd call a God fearing man. But I'm inclined to believe you're correct.

    A combination of these things seems to be doing something averse to our kids. BUT. Are we the ONLY nation that has these combination of things? Are we the only nation that tells our kids they're the next president, while allowing abortion, because we're just highly evolved animals with no god? Somehow, I don't think so.


    Is that it, though? Fear? Fear for our immortal souls that kept us in line as children, in past generations? Or a belief that, of all the critters out there, we are super special snowflakes?

    I don't know. Logically, your case has merit, it really does. But I just don't want to think of us as beings who are only kept in line by fear, by the ever present threat of an eternity in hell, imposed by a god that loves us above all others.

    Many kids these days have received no discipline or morals from their parents.

    They lack respect for others, and respect of others.

    Being Christians, my children understand the value of life.

    The kids also understand the taking of a life for self-defense can be a requirement of survival of self and family.

    it seems other people these days do not share the same values and beliefs, which is part of the problem.

    Very simply, many people today do not care nor recognize the difference between right and wrong - Therein lies the problem.

    My heart does go out to the kids and families but it does look like this will push I594 over the edge to pass.
    Was it a gun free zone?

    Not really - it has been a constant decline for some years now.

    We might as well remove 'One nation under God' from the pledge of Allegiance, as we surely don't act like it these days.
