I got back yesterday from Bogotá, the capital of Colombia in South America. I’ll post pictures and a little write up about it at another time, because I find it unimportant for now.

I feel terrible for all those who were wounded and those who lost their lives in the Virginia Tech massacre. My thoughts and prayers are with their families and friends, and for ALL the students and staff at the university!

I have said it a million times that the only solution to this rampage of ongoing slaughter in schools, is to have school faculty volunteers, with nerves of steel, go through intensive firearms training. There should be an INTENSIVE background check on those who volunteer. There is NO other solution but this! I find it insane to have these signs posted in front of schools that advertise to potential killers that firearms are NOT permitted on school grounds. This alone makes every student, and staff SITTING DUCKS!

It angers me to hear the news media point fingers with accusations at the University of Virginia, but then this seems to be a disgusting trait of trying to find others at fault without even knowing the facts to begin with.

I have changed my mind AGAIN! I am now a REPUBLICAN. I also now love President Bush, Pat Buchanan, Geraldo Rivera, and Bill O’Reilly and MAYBE even that BIG mouth blonde woman with the Adams Apple. (Can’t recall her name right now)

Since I’m a firm believer of FREEDOM OF SPEECH, I’m terribly upset that Don Imus was fired from MSNBC and CBS. We, as Americans, must stop getting all soggy like wet noodles when some people state something we don’t like. I could care less what you call me! What I CARE for most is that YOU have a RIGHT to to say it!

By and by, I’ll be replying to those who were so sweet to comment in my last naughty post. :o)

Hey Savanah I wish the cowered would of just shot him self!!!!!!

I hope you had a good trip!!! ;o)

And Imus knew what he did was wrong and he will be back he are ready has a job on satellite radio that is what I heard and free speech comes with some responsibility too and when you go to far some times you have to pay the fiddler.

And why do you change your mind so easily?

But no matter what side your on I still Love you!! But you knew that already right?

have you lost your fucking mind?

btw, republicans work hard to ban guns and make it harder to purchase them as well. democrats have voted 100% in favor of all NRA positions.

it depends mostly on whether they come from an urban or rural district. Rural representatives tend to vote for less gun control, and urban ones for gun control.

you like bill o'reily now?

On the right to bear arms issue; then who the HELL do I vote for?

Yeah, I liked something Bill-O and especially what Buchanan said yesterday about firearms. I wanted to go and give Buchanan a bit hug!

I totally agree about Imus. The man was a shock jock and made a career out of being a mean, crotchety old bastard. People who listen to shock jocks, then get offended are deficient in the head.

However, i'm still a democrat and have a special type of loathing for Bush, Buchanon, Coulter, and their ilk.

Pat Buchanan, O'Reilly, Rivera, and Ann Coulter
Pat Buchanan, O'Reilly, Rivera, and Ann Coulter have tendencies of being insensitive to other’s feelings, and I'm positive they'll soon say something which will cause me to dislike them intensely soon.

The only reason I like them for the time being is because they all stated something yesterday which pertained to the 2nd Amendment that I was in total agreement with.

Today I'm a Republican. Who knows what I'll be tomorrow. Only time will tell, from here to Election Day, who I'll vote for.

As for Bush, I lost faith in him a long time ago.

Put gun carrying people in any crowd, give them some of the basic self protection training and fucking guys like that evil bastard will be blown away long before he kills that many people.

To those in the Left: The police can not protect you. This is proven by these evil killers over and over. Only other gun carrying individuals can protect you.

GUN CONTROL IS NOT THE ANSWER.

A gun in my hand is the answer.

GUN CONTROL IS NOT THE ANSWER
I've been reading up on many of the horrific mass murders that have happened, and I can't help but feel the only solution to have saved countless lives, would have been if someone had been legally carrying a gun also.

What these people who are so apt in carrying on with gun control don't realize is that the criminal will ALWAYS have access to firearms.

Once a call has been made to the police, there is no way in hell can make it in time to save lives.

What I find unbelievable is the fact that there are signs in every school in the country that NO guns are permitted on the premises. How very easy it is for these demons to enter and cause the slaughter they have planned.

The tragedy of all this is that there are so MANY crazies in this world, who are COPYCATS, and will do exactly as this terrible nut did in Virginia, just to become famous.

You are absolutely right Don, Gun control is NOT the answer; the answer is to arm us so we will stand a better chance of surviving, and protecting others.

I hope you have a good time on your trip. Why did you go there anyhow? I agree with you, they should allow some well screened people to carry firearms in schools: especially colleges. But I think the police and the school not acting to find that madman and alerting the entire campus that a shooter was on the lose contributed to the high death toll. I think the swat and regular police should have went into that building looking to kill that rat bastard.

I may sound cold blooded but
Thank you. I did have a nice time. I went there because my boss had to go there on business, and he asked me to accompany him.

I may sound cold blooded but I believe the only solution is to train volunteer staff members, and just as soon as a madman enters the school, he should be killed as soon as possible, before he kills more innocent people. I believe it will be the only solution.

I also believe the casualties would have been the same, even if the police had been alerted immediately.

On Imus, I find it funny that Al Sharpton, a guy who has protected a black dude who claimed he wanted to kill all white people... not to mention Al got a 13 year old black gal to claim she was raped by three white guys just as a publicity stunt, should be taken seriously. Al Sharpton is just a black version of David Duke. And don't even get me started on Jessie 'Hymie-town' Jackson! Both those guys are racist themselves and have no business going after anybody else for this kind of stuff.

I am my own secret service
I actively volunteer to bodyguard myself.

I was really happy the last time I went shooting, with my new ruger. it was the first time I shot it and Old Dude Who Lives For The Shooting-Range came over to compliment my shooting, and also respectfully gave me some helpful hints that I really appreciated.

as for the Imus thing, I think he's an asshole, but I still dont think he should have been fired after making a public apology and meeting with the people he insulted.
that's the power of pressuring corporate advertizers.

Why be bothered by the whole Imus thing?
I could get fired from my job for saying much less that what he did.

He pissed off alot of people and his company decided to let him go. So be it. He'll be back if he wants in some other venue.

There was no freedom of speech issue at all, simply a corporate decision.

the upcoming elections should be fun, I find it hard for the republicans to win the presidency...perhaps if it was Rudy Guilliani he might win, but I get the feeling we might be calling him President Obama after 2009...

They're already putting up Charlton Hestons picture up in European Newstories about the massacre. As if. It's not too long before we see the democratic attack ad showing senator/president/congressperson whoever morphing into a picture of the VaTech Shooter...

..the Don Imus thing is no free speech issue, his bosses have been looking to fire him for at least 10 years now. They just happened a convienient excuse, that and Don Imus is none to popular with any of his bosses or peers, so it's sayonara.


On totally another topic, You remember that lady, Melinda Duckett, the murder suspect Nancy Grace pushed into suicide. I found her sex tapes on-line. It's not disturbing (no kids involved, just normal all american porn) but if you want a link to it (for ghoulish amusement sake) just let me know.

VA Tech - It's a shame. A few breakdowns in a few places, and a lot of people are dead as a result. Strangely, I'm more interested in the murderer than in the victims; I'll be going through his final ramblings (or as much as is released to the public) to see if I can spot where his last bit of sanity went.

Imus - I'd only heard of him in passing, and if it weren't for the potential fallout, I wouldn't have cared. The FCC went for Stern, and the Rev'runds went for Imus. I don't like where this is leading.

Columbia - Ah, so now we know where "beyond" was! If it weren't for the political and societal instability in the region, I'd love to visit Central America.

Much of my thoughts have been on Cho Seung-Hui
Much of my thoughts have been on Cho Seung-Hui, also. I have wondered what in the world happened to this guy to push him over the brink. If perhaps it was due to some chemical imbalance, or if something happened horrible happened to him at some point in his life, or if he was just born evil. The only solution in dealing with people like Seung-Hui, is blasting their brains out just as soon as they fire that first shot. Whatever his problem was, it really doesn't matter, because so many innocent people were viciously murdered and wounded by him!

I oftentimes watch Imus in the morning as I'd get ready for work, and I really liked him. He was different.

Dave, Central America is beautiful, with beautiful wonderful humble people. In 2003, I went to the Carnaval in Brazil, and literally fell in love with the country! I hope to visit it again someday before I die!

I'll soon post the pictures I took of Colombia.

a couple of points:
1. the training idea for colleges is nice but even that wouldn't work in a case like this. case and point, brian nichols. this guy was in a courthouse (and very secure facility) managed to shoot his way out and go on a killing spree. and there were armed police officers present. essentially if someone really wants to go on a killing spree, they're going to do it. it's sad to say but it's true. this guy needed serious mental treatment and unfortunately officials acted too little too late. not to pass blame or anything but that's what happened.

2. i too am a believer in freedom of speech and had imus been arrested or had his civil rights violated in anyway for his comments, i would've sympathized and would agree with you that would be an injustice. however that wasn't the case and that fucker is not the victim here. the girls he called nappy-headed hoes are (like that decrepit scraggly haired troll can talk shit about anyone). this isn't the first time he's done this. 60 minutes ran a story about how he has made racist remarks in the past and quickly apologized for it when he caught heat for it. imus exercised his first amendment rights and the nabj and protesters exercised theirs. they protested just as gays protested against anne coulter after she made her homophobic remarks or jewish organizations spoke out against mel gibson after he made his statements.

i love how there's a double standard here. what blacks aren't supposed to speak out? we can't express our frustration and our opinion. first trent lott, then michael richards and now this. we're supposed to sit here and take shit from the nice racist white man? it's not unreasonable to ask that we as a people get treated with respect and if we're good enough to give our hard earned money to the advertisers/sponsors who supported this jerkoff, then we're good enough to tell them check this prick.

when mike savage told a caller that he should get aids and die, should he have been able to keep his job? of course not.

the 1st amendment is a beautiful thing and is one of the few things that i love about this country. however it has limits. you can't yell fire in a crowded theater and you can commit slander or libel. did imus do any of those things in this instance? no. but he was forced to take responsibility for his actions.

the syndicated microphone is a privilege and not a right. imus doesn't own it, his sponsors do. and if they know that they are going to lose revenue because of his racist and sexist remarks, they are well within their rights to fire him. they had the option to tell sharpton and the nabj that they supported imus and to fuck off but they didn't. imus represents the companies who sponsor him and if he expresses racist sentiment, said companies are essentially stating that they share said sentiment because they're funding him.

if imus wants to start his personal blog and keep spewing his hate, he is well within his rights to do so. if he wants to stand on a corner and express his opinion he is well within his rights to do so. if he wants to spend money and start his own show and spew his hate, he is well within his rights to do so.

furthermore i don't remember anyone racing to defend the dixie chicks when they originally spoke out against bush (you know before it became the cool thing to do). whether you agree with them or not they were merely exercising their first amendment rights and they caught grief for expressing said beliefs. they sure as hell weren't being racist.

and before you far right-winged fuckers hit the reply button, don't bother. specifically that pencil dicked cocksucker who clearly has a hard-on for my attention.

I'm terribly disappointed sorry to read this. Be that as it may, I remain hopeful that, in time, you will recognize what the Republican party has done to this nation (and the world), and that you will come back to the side of sanity.

Until then, I wish you health, wealth & happiness... and the time here on Earth to enjoy them.

Seriously, what frightens me more than death is that those who are so intent in taking away our right to bear arms, will succeed.

If only ONE person would have had a firearm, I'm sure only a few would have been shot by that insane madman!
