^ I can't really refute a single point you make there.
I suppose it's all about what you expect from your head of state, and your expectations are just as valid as the Brits who ( for whatever motives) wanted to see the Queen choking up on tv and rending her garments in her grief. Personally, I like leaders to show some decorous, discreet acknowledgement of a disaster and in that earlier video clip I thought Obama came off very well. He appeared genuinely upset, which was borne out by the subsequent quote, that it was "the single worst day of his presidency."

Yes, I'm stupid (no, don't argue - oh, you weren't. I ... see.... ) but it took me a moment to understand this headline:

Ford's president of North America is out

I was like, Ford? He was decades ago, man! What the hell are they talking about? Feel free to laugh at me; I did.

OH, please share your thoughts on arming teachers to prevent mass shootings.

It would cause there to be far more mass shootings. Kids would knock teachers out and take their guns. Teachers would freak out and shoot the air conditioner guy. Teachers would have nervous breakdowns and instead of throwing a laptop against the wall somebodyís brains would be on the wall. Teachers donít want to take ****ing gun safety courses go to shooting ranges and all that. And when the kids start getting high at 4:20 frustrated teachers would be offing themselves with their new toys.

I canít express how stupid that idea is. Most teachers take twenty minutes to get the DVD player to work and people are seriously talking about arming them with real guns? lol

Even though thereís a shooting at some school like every three days or something most schools go decades without a single shooting. Most schools have never had a shooting. Shootings are rare even in terrible neighborhood schools.

Bringing in ****loads of more guns and putting them in possession of teachers many of whom are on Xanax Prozac and take pain pills and sleeping pills

You gotta be out of your mind to support that ****

People must not have any clue how ****ed up the typical teacher is

The only reason to support it would be for the incredible death footage it would add to the internet to kick through on a boring day

That's still not something that I find necessary in a leader.
Lack of empathy 101.

You do, however, understand why most find it comforting and reassuring?

Especially those directly affected?

Obviously, Chula. I'm not as stupid as you assume I must be for having the gall to disagree with you. Just because it can be beneficial to some doesn't mean that it's a necessary function of the president.

But it is and has been for a long time. Goes with the job title.
