These people were United States citizens living under the Second Amendment with access to firearms, etc.:



Doesn't seem to have made a difference. Tyranny has much larger and deadlier weapons (and better defenses) than citizens are allowed, or can afford.

Most likely miscaptioned/inaccurate:

This image is real in the sense that it has not been digitally altered (other than the text) and it appears that it was truly taken in Israel. However, this image was not taken at a school, and Israel’s school security practices make it unlikely that the armed woman in the photograph is a teacher.
...
When this photograph first went viral in 2012, Israeli Today took issue with the claim that all teachers in Israel carry guns. In fact, the Israeli web site wrote that it would be very uncommon for a teacher to be carrying a gun in the country, and surmised that the woman in the photograph was actually a security guard.

One of those people shot in Gaza was a volunteer Canadian doctor who was wearing green hospital scrubs (ie clearly dressed and acting as a doctor) and treating the injured. And he wasn't the only medical person who seemed to be targeted:

That doctor you just mentioned, a member of your team, Musa, what happened to him?

Musa's my rescuer. He was a very bright guy. Incredible man.

About an hour after he rescued me, he was trying to get another patient, and ended up getting shot in the chest.

Unfortunately, he died.


"The personnel engaged exclusively in the collection, transport and treatment of the wounded and sick, and in the administration of medical formations and establishments, … shall be respected and protected under all circumstances." - Geneva Convention, Article 9

And it certainly didn't seem warranted:

Do you believe that members of your team the medics were targeted by the Israelis?

I don't know. I'm a doctor and doctors don't make conclusions, they make observations.

My observation is that I was clearly marked and I was shot.

I don't feel I was caught in crossfire, but I can't speak to the intentions of the sniper who shot me.

The Israelis say they're using lethal force only to protect their border that they have the right to defend. They say that those who were there were trying to attack the fence or threaten border security. What do you say to that?

Any doctor will tell you that a peaceful protester shouldn't be summarily executed.

Nobody was armed, from what I saw. Everybody was there peacefully.

Yes, some Palestinians threw rocks. Some Palestinians burned tires. I've frankly seen worse in downtown Toronto protests.

He's also a member of the local Greek Orthodox Church, Yap... any insightful commentary on that too?

Edit: I'm also very curious as to your "source" regarding his clothing.

Gee, who would have guessed... "Trenchcoat Worn By Santa Fe School Shooter Shows Both Communist and Nazi Symbols". I guess that far-right Nazi stuff cancels out the far-left Communist stuff then, leaving him as just a plain old apolitical mass-murderer, right?

Doesn't bode well for Trump's summit with Ping Pong II


I like to try to stay positive but I have this dread feeling that the most accurate assessment of this situation so far has been Tut's. The Kim legacy has been doing this sort of thing for half a century and it's unlikely they will stop now.

I'm all for them agreeing to peace and dismantling the nukes, etc. but this would require absolute and unprecedented UN and other monitoring and I would be surprised if they would agree to it, and if they didn't it would seem like a(nother) ruse.

Ah well.

Edit: I seem to remember that these talks were contingent on there being no more "exercises" and that the U.S. had agreed to this, no? I wonder why they are still going ahead.

Good trigger discipline. However so much showing off of the trigger discipline that it looks deliberate, perfectly new white shoes and hi-tops with no desert dust, scuffs etc. and open-toed shoes in the gravelly desert (ouch), perfect new clothing also inappropriate for the surroundings with no safety or shooting gear other than the actual firearms, perfect brilliant smiles, perfectly smoothed hair, perfectly groomed gravel foregound with no distracting litter or marks, etc.

My conclusion: staged. But opinions vary.

My point (which appears to have been missed) was that anyone can post any crap on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube... they are not reliable sources of information.

Occasionally I follow a page on facebook that states that the sun, being at the minimum of its eleven-year cycle, would have climatic repercussions on the Earth in addition to seismic and volcanic activities.


Here is a page on Facebook too.
So much for Facebook.
I'm going back to bed now.

What did you think about this?


Skeptic bloggers and YouTube... great places to find out that the earth is six thousand years old, flat, and run by Illuminati aliens.

If you don't accept peer-reviewed, mainstream science's conclusions, then this peer-reviewed, mainstream science project is a strange place to hang out. After all, you're already accepting their conclusions that we haven't found any evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence yet as well as trusting that if we do it will be properly documented and disseminated. Meanwhile, the bloggers and YouTubers are convinced that aliens have not only visited but are living among us, making radio searches of places thousands of light-years away rather pointless. So, why accept one set of pseudo-scientific cranks and not the other?

But what are the item "Selfie Sticks" and "Signs"?


Selfie sticks are the handle devices used to hold smartphones for photos. Both they and signs (especially the signpost) are security risks as can conceal long stabbing/cutting weapons among other things.
