The need for active shooter drills is insane.

Since it is a reality today that they are needed, I am not in any way suggesting that we should not have them.

But, WTF is wrong with American society that such drills ARE necessary?

Boomers like myself can remember fire drills and air raid drills. Some regional locations might have had tornado drills. But, except for tornado drills in high risk regions, we never expected that there would be a fire or bomb. They were "just in case" drills.

Now kids not only practice active shooter drills, but can realistically expect it to happen.

Terrorist threats today in Buffalo

Buffalo NPR news is reporting that several "credible" threats have been made to Buffalo businesses today. The threats specifically named which businesses and gave a time range of between 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm. The stores included two Tops locations and one Wal-Mart location as well as other businesses.

The threats say that Blacks will be the targets at those locations.

In a separate incident, yesterday, a man was arrested for making threats to a Buffalo pizza parlor and to a beer brewery. In his threats, he said that he would shoot the places up like Tops.

WTF is wrong with people?

Anti abortionists' contraception agenda

Today on NPR's All Things Considered, Adrian Florido interviewed Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Committee. The program's title was, "After Roe v Wade, What's Next?"

Tobias said their next issue is contraception devices that cause abortion. Asked if they will push to make contraception illegal, Tobias said that their goal is to educate people on the issue.

In other words, contraception is their next target. Does anyone doubt that "educate people on it" means push propaganda that calls for criminalizing contraception?

I have seen threads here warning about this. Today we have it in their own words. The anti abortionists (aka right to life) have contraception next on their agenda.
