flucto: When I was a kid we would have NEVER had school if that's all it took to shut it down. Of course that was before telephones so we would have had to mail in the threats.


Knowing Canada Post, the schools would have received December bomb threats sometime around mid-July.

Ohlookabutterfly: and I bet every stupid kid that made the fake threat was brought here by their parents who came looking for work in our oilpatch

/born in B.C., father moved us here in the 70's to find work in the oilpatch


*facepalm*

Geographic proximity is not an automatic free pass. I do stand up for my neighbours when their behaviour warrants it. I also call them out on doing stupid things when they do stupid things. For example, before your next vitriolic rant about how unfairly treated and tolerant you are, you might want to to take the link to your Twitter feed out of your profile.

apoptotic: Ohlookabutterfly: WhippingBoy: apoptotic: *sigh*

Of course it's Alberta.

It always is.

... and I bet every stupid kid that made the fake threat was brought here by their parents who came looking for work in our oilpatch from farking Ontario. You're welcome, rest of Canada, yes, the only reason our country survived the economic crisis was the revenues from Alberta oil, gas, and oilsands, but you go ahead and act like those dbag ingrates from Quebec and keep biting the hand that feeds.

Oh simmer down. I was born and raised here and I can assure you we've got plenty of homegrown stupid.


Or you could stand up for your neighbours maybe, but I understand, it really is difficult facing internet ridicule if your point of view is slightly different than the majority.

As for home grown stupid, that is undeniable and most of it is currently employed by the RCMP, lets all remember Mayerthorpe as previously mentioned.

The fact remains we are vilified for no proper reason. I remember working with this loud mouth from Cape Breton who would constantly run down AB, nothing here was as good as back home. The last straw was he said out loud in the coffee room that the milk here in AB wasn't as good here as back in old NS, at first I was like wtf, then I was stfu you ungrateful piece of shiat, go the fark back home if the grass is so much greener the cows milk tastes like it's straight from yer momma's teat!

I remember reading a story in the news about a company in New Brunswick bringing in some union tradesmen from Alberta for a job and a bunch of local compensation cowboys gathered outside their hotel one evening to welcome them with open arms and songs of brotherhood. Just kidding, they hurled insults and vituperence in a most unwelcoming manner.

So yeah I get pissed, we have to put up with all the scum of Canada coming here, junkies and their drug dealers, pimps and whores, and all the idiots that got their driving habits in Toronto ripping up our streets and then have to listen to idiots run down my home when I try and show them tolerance.

Maybe the answer is to bring back nuns.


It's time to talk about reasonable, common-sense nun control measures.

BronyMedic: Methadone Girls: They shut down 4 of the 6 schools and found no evidence of any danger and 1 for a low risk incident.  Also fark you for making me read a Sun article.

Well, were the people who called it in atleast very polite? I hear you can take them seriously depending on if they say Please, Sir/Ma'am, Thank you, and Aboot a lot.

Also if they talk about mounties or moose.


I'm thinking they sounded like Bob and Doug McKensie: "Hey you hosers, shut down, eh?" Yeah, we got guns, eh?" And grenades too!" "We do not you hoser, just take off, eh?" "No, you take off."

Kit Fister: Does anyone remember a time when kids didn't shoot up their schools, people didn't feel the need to demand the police and government handle every aspect of everything, and we stood up to bullies who tried to rule us through fear?


Heck, when I was a kid, we all carried M60's, and we used grenades instead of those namby-pamby spitballs. Today's kids are coddled.

Kit Fister: randomjsa: vpb: Well, you don't have as many of them either. If we shut down schools every time some tea bagger or gun nut threatened to start killing people they would be closed permanently.

You're a moron. The Tea Party is not a threat to anyone or anything except the liberal agenda. Which is why you're behaving as if they're some sort of group ready to shoot...

And just to demonstrate how completely stupid you are? Whom do you think wants to put armed guards or teachers at schools to protect kids... the Tea Party or Occupy Wall Street? Think hard now.

What's amusing is that almost every kid at the school where my office is says they feel safer and like having the two police officers in the building, and would feel safer if they had people permanently there to patrol and keep an eye on things. Crazy, I know.


Ideally, there really needs to be a three-pronged attack: security in schools, tightening of gun restrictions in general, and vast improvement on the availability of mental health care.
