    Kurt, my personal feeling is that we (the US) have a crisis of "insecurely attached" kids.

    There's significant research showing that kids need at least one competent and caring adult on their...

    Don't have a story to top that, but curious. Was the discussion about McMaster's web site or ???

    Kurt, see the Research Gate archived paper referenced above. It goes into detail on the drug use or non use for many of the shooters.

    Might be useful to check sources. The WND site, linked above, is "affectionately know" as WingNutDaily:

    WND - RationalWiki

    It cites a single researcher, (David Healy) but none of the actual...

    Having ridden out maybe half a dozen busts, from the early 70's oil crisis and about every ten years after, I'm not expecting the Apocalypse. Leaving that to folks wanting to hasten that here on...

    OK . . . A dark matter asteroid will strike in the next 30 days. Or maybe Martians landing in space saucers, sucking all our oil out of the ground. Because VERY FEW expect this, the Dow has to...

    Bill, I enjoy the bits of history, from what must be wide-ranging reading, that you often bring to threads. Thanks.

    More like history books, the ones with Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin in them. And then their modern equivalents like Putin, Assad, Kim . . . heck we've already been through the list. Powerful...

    Quick review. Used to be that conservative administrations were in favor of free trade (helps producers sell stuff) and were negotiated in a win-win spirit. You do what we do best, we do what we...

    I'd agree that a united front would be useful. My guess is that Euro countries aren't entirely eager to side with the US on trade issues for fear of being dragged into a mess, held hostage to...

    Well I'd agree with you that Jerry Brown, third and fourth times around, was a far better governor than Newsom has been in his first. Democracy sometimes gets us a Newsom or a Trump, promising the...

    Manny, right this summer I've been messing with both my front and side decks. Unmolested. Used to have an RV one house ago -- and parked it in the front driveway. Who knew? Real freedom of the...

    Just pointing out the irony of advocating for a .38 in every pocket, while personally choosing to live in a place where very few can even have guns -- and those few pretty carefully watched.

    No.

    It's a small percentage of citizens who are "some how crazed and foaming at the mouth." Which is why we should have universal background checks and better enforce our laws.

    Manny, I gather you left the US for China, and keep telling us what a better place it is, because they'd let both let you have weapons at home and carry on the streets -- all without so much as a...

    Two points. First -- by having an orderly process rather than a tweet-a-holic approach to assuring a level playing field, it's less in-your-face. Every maker, in every country, would have a choice....

    True enough, Mark. But if you have, say, a US patent and someone from China (where, say, you don't have a patent) copies your product -- the Chinese copycat isn't free to sell in the US. Most...

    While we're counting hypotheticals, seems we also don't report incidents where people get talked down from an assault either - including with patient cops.

    Who'd a thunk -- it's actually...

    My take, Hanermo, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, is that tariffs to level the playing field would be a good idea. But that leveling should include the reduced costs (grabbed by any...

    That's what the Indians said.

    Or maybe just too sociopathic, stupidly overestimating themselves, or just got themselves in too deep to do anything other than keep shooting? Hard for me to see it as courage.
