Perhaps if we paid drivers more they could be bothered...


I mean, seriously, what do you expect for $50k a year (second highest bus driver pay in the nation).

Chuck,

You must be miserable to being you. It seems that everyone is constantly pushing your buttons.

Oh yeah... And UTAH sends an African American woman to washington.

A historic election result you must have overlooked:

Tim Scott - First African-American senator from the South since Reconstruction.

Chuck,

“As for me, I'm want to live in the city the young people desire.”

Please do that. I hear Curitiba is lovely this time of year. I’m sure we could pass the hat to buy you a (one-way) bus ticket to there.

Actually Chuck, You’re wrong again: “statistically, the real killers of Americans are weak laws on guns and violence related to misogyny”



Here are the actual top 15 causes of death in the US. You will notice heart disease is the real killer of Americans, homicide (by gun or otherwise) is 15th (after alcoholism and hypertension).



Cause Percent of Total

1. Diseases of the heart 28.5

2. Malignant tumors 22.8

3. Cerebrovascular diseases 6.7

4. Chronic lower respiratory diseases 5.1

5. Accidents (unintentional injuries) 4.4

6. Diabetes mellitus 3.0

7. Influenza and pneumonia 2.7

8. Alzheimer's disease 2.4

9. Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis 1.7

10. Septicemia (blood poisoning) 1.4

11. Suicide 1.3

12. Chronic liver disease and cirrhosis 1.1

13. Primary hypertension and hypertensive renal disease 0.8

14. Parkinson's disease (tied) 0.7

15. Homicide (tied) 0.7

@37
So the initiative backers are proposing their initiative as “a solution” to “random murder”?
They should explain better how their initiative would solve that problem.
As far as I can tell (per @30) they just “hope,” (but do not know and cannot say), that there will be a “statistical drop” in the amount of gun violence due to their efforts.
So which is it? Are they hoping for a statistical drop or are they solving the problem?
Hope is hardly a solution.
If they have empirical evidence that their proposed initiative is a solution, and they share it with me, I’ll change my vote.
As of today, I won’t willingly submit to any infringement of my rights for the sake of “hope” alone. The bar must be higher than that.

@30

So they are just leveraging this tragic event for political purposes? They understand that this shooter probably would have had this gun and used it this way with or without their initiative, but have chosen to imply otherwise for purely political reasons?



That’s kind of despicable.
