“Tamaqua”

Is that the school principal’s name? (ducking;)

Tamaqua? Whew, I have to tell you, it’s been decades since I last had a few beers at Took One but I remember that place as being about as hick and in the middle of coal country as can be. I mean, it’s nowhere near any “urban” areas.

At Penn State I had several friends from Tamaqua and these guys kept a shotgun in their apartment and actually took shots at mice.
In the apartment.

Yeah, this doesn’t sound like the Tamaqua I remember, not at all.
There must be more to the story.

Our Founders feared it. Tyranny of the majority. The entire Constitution was designed to prevent it. We're losing.

So true. You can even say it’s more like herd. At least a mob has a leader. God this so sad.

Too many damn scumbags willing to go along with this PC bullcrap.

Ah, “disorderly conduct.” One of the elastic “crimes” which along with obstruction, disturbance, loitering, impeding, etc. are only crimes if the authorities feel like it. I say we all act a little less orderly around them, then maybe the bar will have to be reset to a reasonable height.

Haven't you heard? A horde of liberals have moved there to escape the crime in Allentown.

So I guy I work with gets mad driving to work and makes the pointed (gun) finger gesture at a lady. The lady calls the cops. They find him at work (maybe she followed his car). They search the car, they find a gun. He has a concealed permit, so no gun violation (obviously he never touched the gun in regard to the lady, and wasn’t about to). My company fires him for having a gun on their property (which companies can do in Texas, at least back then). I’m not sure if criminal charges were filed on him for “threatening” her with the gesture.

He’s a good guy, was great to work with (never prone to anger at work), and I wish him well. But it shows how a little “comment” can escalate and not only ruin your day, but, in his case at least, likely ruin your career and retirement also (and maybe the ability to pay for your kids to get worthless degrees from college).

Ooooh Noooo! The finger gun. Thats what I do to the illegal aliens who cruise past our house staring into our garage to see what they can come back and steal. You would not believe the positive effect it has on them. :-)

They’d have fun with me, I remember drawing M-16’s, AK-47’s, B-52’s and swords on my bookcovers back in school. During studyhalls, if we were not busy, we’d play “war” on paper by drawing symbols of tanks, planes, foxholes, bombs, mines, helicopters, gun placements and so on and we’d take a pencil and shoot a path across as we “shot.” if it hit something, it was gone but if we hit a bomb, the shooter was gone. We sometimes had artillery rules too, where the artillery hit, we drew a line around a quarter that obliterated everything in the area. It was big when I was in 7th grade (1979).

Yeah, I know. That’s why I pointed out mobs don’t have to have a leader, usually don’t, and some types of herds have a leader by definition.

well I'll just point out that mobs do have leaders. Like the Mafia. That's a mob and they have leaders. Herds don't. They just run in a group. Thank you.
