Of course they did.

We spent some of the day in various lockdowns. Some girl decided she was gonna call the cops and say someone had a gun.

Yeah, she was lying.

Fark guns.

Thank you

Same county as the Oxford shooting. Our school district got some copycat threats and shut down for a few days. Kids back to school tomorrow... hopefully.
 
2021-12-06 8:33:44 PM  
So, wait... schools absolutely have to be open, despite kids dying from COVID

But since we don't want to do anything about guns, time to shut down the schools?
 
2021-12-06 8:39:20 PM  
Not sure if it made national news yet, but local news said they are looking to charge school officials for farking up

Republicans need more morons to vote for them. So they are doing their best to make more morons.

Quiet!  Talk like that will hurt the Guns feelings and you'll have Repuiblicans to answer to for it.

Hold on-- if I went to school with guns duct-taped to every square inch of my exterior-- so I was encased in guns like a hockey goalie swaddled in Glocks-- wouldn't that deflect some bullets??

We've never closed schools because of cancer, we're not going to start closing them because of guns.

Wait, I thought education was so important that we needed to end at-home schooling and send them all back to class?  Which is it, Republicans?

/Yeah, we all know the answer: Whatever stigs it to the libs at that moment in time...
 
2021-12-06 9:41:28 PM  
Gun owner rights?

It's the GOP. They probably would prefer fuhrer school

He's a seekrit demorat because we all know that only dumbocrats don't want kids in school.

Seriously, his own voters should attack him... but they won't see the issue.
 
2021-12-06 9:48:06 PM  
It worked in 2020. Least number of school shootings in years.

I think these people hate public education because Socialism failed to make them smart.
 
2021-12-06 9:54:24 PM  
I do agree that school funding shouldn't be tied so heavenly on attendance.   A few families move out of the area; sorry no new roof for your school but here's a extra bucket to hold the water leaking through.
 
2021-12-06 9:56:17 PM  
They literally held school funding hostage to force in-person classes during a pandemic.

The entire GOP is nasty f-ing scum.

School funding should not be directly tied to local taxes. It is so blatantly unequal that I struggle to understand how it's constitutional.

Isn't it fascinating how they want teachers to be trained and ready to act as human shields to protect the lives of their children, but don't want to pay teachers wages commensurate with those responsibilities.

They don't want teachers to have health care, and want to pay them so little that most teachers work a second job to pay their bills and also buy the teaching supplies the school refuses to provide, but they need post-secondary degrees, EMT certifications, and weapons and tactical training.

There is no war but the class war and we're always losing.

Let me guess: The less educated that an American is, the more likely that the American will vote for Republicans.
 
2021-12-06 10:04:16 PM  
You're surprised by this subby? Less school is the only way to ensure more Republicans.
 
2021-12-06 10:04:37 PM  
Good, that should get rid of all the trash and let the kids who are interested in learning do so with more attention from the teachers. Let the conservative kids be dullards, die from Covid, etc. because of their ignorant parents. It will solve a lot of problems.

it makes sense if you don't think about it.
 
2021-12-06 10:09:39 PM  
It's all part of the conservative problem solving equation.  Like when they didn't want high positive COVID tests, the solution was fewer tests.  Now, we want fewer school shootings so the obvious answer is less school to be shot up.

Fewer guns? Fewer schools?
How about we work on having FEWER FARKING SHOOTERS?

/We had plenty of the first two for generations with no issues, so you can't say its those things and not our current culture that are farked up.
 
2021-12-06 10:13:20 PM  
And it will save time and money because they won't have to schedule bonfires to burn all the books.
 
2021-12-06 10:16:29 PM  
My solution: less right wingers

They're accomplishing that themselves by dying of Trump Lung so that's good.

Unfortunately that would require addressing systemic cultural issues, but we can't do that because the status quo is god and better things aren't possible.

It hasn't quite gone that far in the national press yet but boy howdy are they gleefully reporting the local cops' "We're not ruling anything off the table at this point."

Considering that Repubs also want to abolish the minimum wage and weaken worker protections and loosen restrictions on child labor, their desire for less school almost sounds like it's cut from the same cloth, doesn't it?

"Some parents might have children in fine mental health but are concerned about the environment at their children's school because of threats and bullying, the former lawmaker said. They should be able to remove their students from class, McMillin said."

What, do you think a Republican's positions should be determined by deeply held convictions or something?

They should be determined by whatever is in the news right now!!!
