Sorry Amy. Your pal Moochelle is highly overrated.
“DO we need greater gun control?”
Probably. I would really not want to have to waste more than one round per thug, civillian criminal or government thug. Always good to have personal goals.
In a well-regulated FReeper den, the right to create and deploy antimatter shall not be infringed.
she has more than 1 problem...
I guess we should work on that gap in the master plan.
I bailed on Physics about 35 years ago; we need an astute theoretician with lab experience to step up and take over the Program.
Somehow, looking at the gun purchases, I don’t think the “unstoppable groundswell” will go in her direction.
I’ve already got mine.
So much for the theory that she has no rabbinical authority because she’s not a man.
Rather we will live to see a second American civil war. It will happen the way things are going.
She must be from one of the more liberal versions of the Jewish faith.
But that is depending on WHAT branch of Jewish faith it is. The liberal branches permit women to be rabbis.
How about we resolve "Crustacean control" first? The woman can't take a trip to an inland Walmart without sending the local lobster population into a frenzied terror.
How about "just no."
The fact that Jewish women are not permitted to be rabbis has nothing to do with assigning women a "second class" status, BTW. Men and women in Judaism are assigned different roles to fulfill all the tasks which need to be done. Jewish women are considered to be on a higher spiritual level from the get-go. They are exempted from time-related mitzvos, such as making it to the synagogue 3x/day for services, because it is assumed that they have child-rearing duties, for example, which would make that difficult. They also do not have to pray with a minyan (quorum of 10 men). It is considered immodest and it is forbidden to touch men who are not your father, husband or son. Likewise, men are not to touch women who are not their mother, wife or daughter. This would make it very difficult therefore to be a rabbi and be among men all day long. Jewish women are also not encouraged to put themselves forward and be a noticeable part of a mixed group, out of modesty. So you can see where being a rabbi would be outside of Jewish law. This woman does not speak for "The Jews", but rather for herself.
Seems to me that the ability to refurbish an unused school in two weeks so that the children in CT can have a school shows remarkable speed. I wasn’t aware there was such a large contingent of construction, electrical, computer and facilities engineers and personnel available in the area, let alone the temporary housing required.
I was also amazed that emergency vehicles could make it through the array of cars strewn everywhere there at the CT school on Dec 14.
If these concepts are sensible, I would like to see the budget for them and their consequences.
Authorize each State's National Guard to offer military grade rifle and pistol marksmanship training at reasonable cost to all peaceable, taxpaying citizens. There are, apparently, several hundred million rifles, pistols, and shotguns owned by the private citizens of these United States. The owners of said firearms need to have the greatest effectiveness in controlling them.
It's for the children ... if better preparedness for self-defense saves even one life, it's worth it.
Oh I know well what the left is up to using that terminology, and when you control the media you can get that terminology in widespread use.
Obliviously anybody who disagrees with them is insensible and unreasonable. /sarc
