    Gun Free School Gets Rocks Instead



    Buckets of rocks are Pennsylvania schools’ last defense against shooters

    A rural Pennsylvania school district has equipped all 200 of its classrooms with buckets of rocks that students and teachers could use as a “last line of defense” in the event of a school shooting, the district’s superintendent said on Friday.

    The buckets are just one of the measures that Blue Mountain School District in Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania, has put in place this academic year, along with security cameras, secured building entrances and fortified classroom doors, Superintendent David Helsel said in a telephone interview.

    “We didn’t want our students to be helpless victims,” Helsel said. “River stones were my idea. I thought they would be more effective than throwing books or book bags or staplers.”

    Trump at NRA

    Trump at NRA convention calls for arming ‘qualified’ teachers, slams gun-free zones
    President Trump on Friday reiterated his call to arm qualified teachers as part of the response to the recent Parkland, Florida, school shooting, while slamming gun-free zones as invitations to potential mass killers.

    “We strongly believe in allowing highly-trained teachers to carry concealed weapons,” Mr. Trump said, also calling for “highly trained security guards.”

    He said there’s no sign “more inviting” to a mass killer than a sign declaring that a school is a gun-free zone.

    “All of us here today are deeply committed to school safety,” Mr. Trump said.

    He also told gun-rights activists at the National Rifle Association’s 2018 convention he will protect their Second Amendment rights.

    Unemployment Best Ever

    Black unemployment falls to lowest level on record

    Black unemployment fell to 6.8 percent in December, the lowest ever recorded by the U.S. Labor Department since it began tracking the black unemployment rate in 1972.

    Economists say it’s a sign the recovery from the Great Recession is finally starting to help a wider swath of the U.S. population.

    During the aftermath of the financial crisis, black unemployment soared to 16.8 percent in 2010, meaning more than 1 out of every 6 African Americans was looking for a job but could not find one. The rate has steadily declined since, breaking the prior all-time low of 7 percent that was set in 2000 during the dot-com boom.

    Hispanic unemployment at all-time low under Trump

    The president’s daughter, a senior White House adviser, flagged the statistic Friday morning shortly after the Labor Department released November unemployment numbers.

    The Hispanic unemployment rate fell to 4.7% last month, down from 4.8%. Overall U.S. unemployment remained at 4.1%, a 17-year low. The Labor Department has unemployment data broken down by race and ethnicity dating back to 1973.

    Slow pace of infrastructure spending hurting Canadian economy − and Trudeau Liberals

    The Liberals can’t spend money fast enough.

    No, really. Justin Trudeau’s government hasn’t been able to pump out infrastructure projects at the rate it promised. That’s bad for the public and bad for the economy. It’s especially bad politics for the Liberal Party of Canada.

    The fact that the Liberals can’t get the infrastructure projects going at the speed they promised is a symbol for disappointment with Mr. Trudeau’s government. It seems to have lost the plot on the nitty-gritty matters that affect people’s lives.

    If you thought Harper hurt our global standing, then take a look at Trudeau

    The entire time Stephen Harper was prime minister, the Liberals and their media and academic buddies wrung their hands about the damage he was doing to Canada’s reputation on the world stage.

    Whoever thought that up was definitely a stoner. Whoever actually executed it should be stoned.

    Hey, to avoid keeping those potentially deadly rocks around in the presence of children, what if during an active shooting event everyone in the class poops in their hand and they all fling it at the killer?

    I wonder if Albert Einstein practiced his throwing; he was a pretty smart guy.

    I hope the rock buckets are stored securely, lest some troubled student decides to start hucking.
