Weekend Safety Brief – 16FEB18

Teach your kids how to THINK. How to get out of a bad situation, how to fucking FLEE if they can, and fight like the third monkey trying to get on the Ark, if they cannot.

FALL IN! At ease, rest.

I am about to hurt some feelings. Too fucking bad.

We no longer institutionalize the terminally stupid because they have career choices, like Congressman or Gender Studies Professor.

Similarly, we no longer use words like Mad; Deranged; Delirious; Lunatic; Crazed; Insane; Demented; Psycho; Tranny – instead we say that they are mentally ill. They now need “support,” and “our help.”

When I was growing up, the last of the large mental institutions were closing down or scaling back operations drastically. For the deficient, there was “Sunland,” near Tallahassee. For the crazy fuckers there was “Chattahoochee,” and “MacClenny,” named for the respective small towns where they were located.

While these still exist, they exist as mere shells of their former selves. The reason that these institutions were scaling back was a combination of a removal of social stigma of being crazy or retarded – as well as the proliferation of anti-psychotic medications that (in theory) supported the deinstitutionalization of the dangerous and criminally insane this all by 1955, when peak numbers of lunatics in an asylum were about half a million.

This, in turn, saw the Federal Government fail to fund the Community Mental Health Act in 1963 which was supposed to move the care of nutbars out of the big, evil institutions to local hospitals.

Two years later Medicaid excluded treatment in “institutions for mental diseases” and created a situation where paying for treatment had to happen in hospitals and nursing homes. This led to a whole bunch of people turned out into the public to procreate and spread the crazy all over.

Today – it is virtually impossible to do much besides “Baker Act” a nutjob for 72 hours for evaluation.

Now we have people shouting that we should spend more money, provide more “support” and “care” for these psycho killers so they will feel loved and not kill. How about this – how about we lock these fuckers up, give them a frontal lobotomy, and feed them mush until they perish of old age? Sounds like a plan.

ON THE OTHER HAND – If one removes all the bullshit noise statistics that the far left and the media tout like “18 mass school shootings already in 2018” and stick to the actual facts, as that number is bullshit and hype, we can see that while this shit is serious, it is not as bad as they make it out to be.

The most mass shootings per annum on record in the United States happened in 1991 with 8 bona fide shootings. Second place was a tie with 1999 and 2012 getting hit with 7 each. Overall, since 1900, the 1990s were the worst with 42 during the whole decade. Of the 67 shooters between 1983 and 2013, 65 were fucking crazy, and known to be.…/5355990…/another-mass-shooting-another-ps…/

It remains to be seen if Cruz is another one – but my bet is that he was – just like EVERY SINGLE NON-TERRORIST SHOOTER since 9/11.

The fact is that we don’t have a gun problem – we have always had guns. We have a tolerance problem. We have a touchy-feely warm and fuzzy problem where we don’t want to call crazy people “crazy” or crayon eaters, “Marines.”

We want to see ourselves as tolerant, caring, and progressive, and come up with policies that see the overmedicated have psychotic breaks and murder innocents. Then instead of blaming Cain, we blame the fucking ROCK.

Additionally, we want to spend millions on arming veterans, retired cops and THREEpers to “protect the children” – I don’t know about you fuckers, but I have a fucking job, and don’t have the time nor inclination to sit and be bored at a school for eight hours per day – besides – EVERY SINGLE SCHOOL IN FLORIDA already has a resource officer present. MANY have good access control, cameras galore, and well-rehearsed drills.

Add to that the “homeless vets” and whatnot that people bring up are not exactly the types I want “protecting” my kids a school. Let’s be quite frank, there are thousands of so-called Vets out there that are complete shitbags, and I wouldn’t trust them to guard the fucking latrine. Further, look up: Oswald, Dahmer, Berkowitz, McVeigh, and Whitman (The list goes on!) – being a “Veteran” is not a free pass to hang out with my kids, sorry – not sorry.

The simple fact is that with a student body of over 3000, with multiple entries on multiple buildings, at dismissal – the logistics would require a lockdown procedure like a SCIF or a prison. Is that what we want at EVERY SINGLE SCHOOL in the US?

Remember the Navy Yard shooting? Plenty of armed guards, access control, and cameras – still had a mass shooting.

Remember Fort Hood? In the middle of the installation – notionally one of the safest places one could be. Still had a mass shooting.

Remember the Fort Lauderdale Airport attack? You get the point.

Bad guys with nothing to lose in their fucked up crazy heads are going to find a way to kill – even with a bomb made in the kitchen – remember Boston?

My point is that we need to crack down on the psychos, lock the fuckers up, and throw away the key. Additionally, we need to realize that these fuckers should not be allowed to use “crazy” as an excuse – of course, you are fucking crazy. You, Bundy, Manson, Dahmer – yeah, sane people don’t do that shit.

Firing squad – POST.

That all being said – teach your kids how to THINK. How to get out of a bad situation, how to fucking FLEE if they can, and fight like the third monkey trying to get on the Ark, if they cannot.

Have a great president’s day weekend. The usual admonitions apply. See you Tuesday. GTFO.
