No shots fired at Oklahoma University.  No injuries.  No deaths.  Thanks Obama.

meyerkev: Perducci: R.A.Danny: NEWSFLASH: Nothing happened and people are upset at the lost opportunity to talk gun control.

Don't worry.  Hundreds of other people have been senselessly shot elsewhere across the United States today.

11000 gun homicides per year*/365 days = ~30/day.

* Keeping in mind that a non-zero are (actually honest-to-god) self-defense, and there's another 17000 suicides, so it's more like 76/day.  Still not hundreds though.


Not everyone that gets shot dies.

Every day in the U.S., an average of 289 people are shot.
86 of them die
53 kill themselves
30 are murdered
2 die accidentally
1 is shot in a police intervention

I knew it.  No gun related death has ever been the result of self defense.  I told everyone during that whole Zimmerman thing, but everyone was just soooo pissed about Skittles.  They're not really a rainbow.  It's just candy.

Never understood why this number is included in anti-gun propaganda other than to inflate the numbers.  Why should I give two shiats about people offing themselves?  IMO suicide is a cowardly and superbly selfish act and the human race becomes just a little bit stronger every time some fragile snowflake kicks the bucket. I guess the same goes for "die accidentally."  I'm more worried about the "30" and the "1" up there.

I have compassion for people who are going through a tough time.  I want people to get all the help need for their depression.  I know people don't "snap out of it".  I don't expect them to.  The goal would be to prevent a suicide.  There's always a better way out.  But given all the resources and help available, they still decide to off themselves, then fark 'em!  Why should I or anyone else care.?  They did us all a favor by putting themselves out of our misery.  Move along, folks!

Doesn't really matter what I expect.  I just know once they do the deed, it's too late.  No amount of compassion or justification will change that.  And there's one less person lacking the internal fortitude and will to survive able to pass on their genes.  Darwin wins.

Reagan:
Unemployment was at 7.2% in 1980 (Thanks carter), and only 5.8% in 2008.
Inflation was 13.5% in 1980(Thanks carter). In 2008? 3.8%.

Obama:
Record 20% of Households on Food Stamps in 2013
Actual unemployment is 37.2%, 'misery index' worst in 40 years

When President Reagan entered office in 1981, he faced actually much worse economic problems than President Obama faced in 2009. Three worsening recessions starting in 1969 were about to culminate in the worst of all in 1981-1982, with unemployment soaring into double digits at a peak of 10.8%. At the same time America suffered roaring double-digit inflation, with the CPI registering at 11.3% in 1979 and 13.5% in 1980 (25% in two years).

During this (Reagan's) seven-year recovery, the economy grew by almost one-third, the equivalent of adding the entire economy of West Germany

How's zero's economic growth look? Lets ask these TI employees.

So please, bring up Reagan as a comparison to zero. It's fun pointing out zero is a complete failure.

Don't worry.  Hundreds of other people have been senselessly shot elsewhere across the United States today.

11000 gun homicides per year*/365 days = ~30/day.

* Keeping in mind that a non-zero are (actually honest-to-god) self-defense, and there's another 17000 suicides, so it's more like 76/day.  Still not hundreds though.

Not everyone that gets shot dies.

Every day in the U.S., an average of 289 people are shot.
86 of them die
53 kill themselves
30 are murdered
2 die accidentally
1 is shot in a police intervention

Because guns make suicide vastly easier than by other methods.  Theoretically there are many borderline cases of those in despair who would have reconsidered, had they had to resort to those other options.  This would give back those husbands and mothers who are traumatized and depressed who would have found therapy or love or other routes to solve their problems rather than putting a very easy bullet into their brains, leaving many loved ones behind, often children.
 
2014-01-22 04:38:29 PM

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Because guns make suicide vastly easier than by other methods.


Actually, they only make it *SLIGHTLY* easier than some other methods.  For example, while firearm attempts are 85% successful, "suffocation" (ie.,  hanging) is 69% effective.

That means that hanging is about 81% as effective as using a firearm, and obviously the materials are easier to get.

Also, there is evidence that removing or restricting access to firearms doesn't necessarily result in a lowering of overall suicide rates, because substitution of methods nearly as effective (like hanging, or jumping from a great height) happens.

Not a single dime has been spent the last two years without the approval of the GOP. The Democrats had a filibuster-proof majority during Obama's time in office for about 2 months.

How does 0 economic growth look? To me it looks like GOP obstruction. Which happens to have been their publicly announced policy.

LOL, I got a text and said, "wait, what? HERE?! Did some out-of-stater not get the memo that shooting up a school is Oklahoma is basically saying, 'hi, I'd like a side of death by hail of bullets from the locals today'?"

Worst part: major news outlets knew the deal before students and staff. We've been texting and/or posting on Facebook for our friends and family because OU refused to tell them shiat about what happened.
