TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

There TWW has done his part. The guy is now on the Internet again so the young people who do not quite fit in to society have another picture of the current folk heroes thanks to the TV networks showing their pictures so many times. The future terrorists or mass shooters must be dreaming about how famous they can become.
As an aside perhaps the real question for the day should be if the men get all the virgins when they go to heaven as martyrs what do the female terrorists get? Is the answer sensitive, caring men?

The article talked about below was written by a journalist working for a public interest journalistic group of people (that means they are left leaning??) Bad things are happening out there and worse yet is the problem of trying to prevent more of them from happening. Perhaps the best people can come up with is solutions that may not make sense.
OVER the past two decades, the majority of Americans in a country deeply divided over gun control have coalesced behind a single proposition: The sale of assault weapons should be banned. ..."That idea was one of the pillars of the Obama administration’s plan to curb gun violence, and it remains popular with the public. In a poll last December, 59 percent of likely voters said they favor a ban...But in the 10 years since the previous ban lapsed, even gun control advocates acknowledge a larger truth: The law that barred the sale of assault weapons from 1994 to 2004 made little difference."...."Annually, 5,000 to 6,000 black men are murdered with guns. Black men amount to only 6 percent of the population. Yet of the 30 Americans on average shot to death each day, half are black males."
read the article here: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/14/sunday-review/the-assault-weapon-myth.html?_r=0
- Is reality as seen through the lens of the media reality?
- Airplane crashes scare people because of the large number of deaths but car crashes are run of the mill unless you know someone involved.
- 'Mass shootings' scare people but murders especially in the ghetto are also run of the mill unless you know the victims
- When a relatively small number of white people die it is a much bigger deal than when a much bigger number of black people die (do the Black Lives Matter people ever talk about this?)
- Laws need definitions. When the government defines something and makes it illegal people work to get around the law legally. During the pretend ban on assault weapons (nobody confiscated the existing guns) during the Clinton years the gun makers got around the law and introduced more weapons.
- Gun free zones only allow criminals the ability to protect themselves in the zones

Here is the solution:

"If there's a rabid dog running around in your neighborhood, you're probably not going to assume something good about that dog," Carson said during a campaign stop in Alabama. "And you're probably going to put your children out of the way. "
"but" ( a word TWW added) "That doesn't mean that you hate all dogs."
TWW's comment: So why weren't the enlightened liberals who know about nuances and all that stuff smart enough to understand a good analogy rather than being horrified?

Are these more politically correct chickens coming home to roost too?
"A man who has been working in the area said he noticed a half-dozen Middle Eastern men in the area in recent weeks, but decided not to report anything since he did not wish to racially profile those people.
“We sat around lunch thinking, ‘What were they doing around the neighborhood?'” he said. “We’d see them leave where they’re raiding the apartment.”.
The second story was about the Paris to save the world from Climate Change. You all have heard about the climate deniers who say climate change is not proven and we should wait and see before taking any action that may hurt certain groups like the people who use electricity (that is us).
The first story revealed another type of denial. The reality was right in front of TWW's eyes but he was too blind to see it until today. The first news story was about the man and woman who shot up the party in San Bernadino. The story cautioned that just because the people who were the killers were of Pakistan and Saudia Arabia descent does not mean they were terrorists and we should wait until all the facts are in and nothing has been proved yet. This sounds just like what the climate deniers say. People can bend over backwards to keep from having to admit something is reality. From this it is obvious we are dealing with denial on the liberal side. Let's start calling these people the Jihadism Deniers. Or should we wait for more evidence that this is really what is going on?
A primer from Wikipedia
"Jihadism (jihadist movement, jihadi movement and variants) is used to refer to contemporary armed jihad in Islamic fundamentalism. The term "jihadism" was coined in the 2000s and mostly used to cover Islamic insurgency and Islamic terrorism since that time, but it has also been extended to cover both Mujahideen guerilla warfare and Islamic terrorism with an international scope since it arose in the 1980s, since the 1990s substantially represented by the al-Qaeda network."

The president said, "...We have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them. Period. Enough is enough." "
Enough of what? Enough BS? What we really need is an analysis of possible solutions that is objective. But that would be common sense which almost all of the entire gun debate lacks.
Here are two articles attempting to do some of what is missing:

The Chinese do not have boots on the ground like Carson first claimed. He meant to say 'sandals' like all the people in Asia must wear.

And here is the mainstream media version of the truth: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/white-house-fact-checks-ben-carson-claims-chinese/story?id=35183114
And more 'proof' from somebody TWW has never heard of fro a few year back:
Chinese Radars in Syria
As the Syrian crisis continues, new evidence is suggesting a far greater amount of Chinese military assistance to the Assad regime than previously believed. Imagery analysis reveals the presence of Type 120, JYL-1, and JY-27 (GREAT WALL) radar systems at various EW complexes in Syria. The radars are present in imagery dating as far back as 2009. Given that the current crisis in Syria developed in late 2011, the new identification of Chinese military equipment does not represent overt Chinese support of the Assad regime. While China does not support Western initiatives regarding the crisis, it is imperative to note that the 2009 or earlier delivery timeline predates the situation and is indicative only of an import-export relation between the two states."

This is talking about the student reaction to an e-mail about Halloween costumes but sure sounds similar to the student demands in MO. The only difference is some of the students in Missouri were actually victims but what difference should reality make to the elite college students.

TWW says: The real scandal here is how he conned his mother into lying for him in the Parade interview.
So what are the protesters going to do now? Holding one's breath until one turns blue does not work well for people in minority groups. Is not turning blue when some people cannot an example of white privilege?

The anti-gun Violence Policy Center said this in a background report:
"Would smart guns entice individuals who otherwise wouldn’t buy a gun to bring a weapon
into their home?
Making smart guns available could increase the chances of selling guns to Americans who
currently do not own them. A March 1997 survey conducted by the National Opinion Research
Center found that, of respondents who were “unlikely to buy a gun in the future,” 35 percent
would “consider buying a handgun that would only fire for the owner of the gun.” Packaged
with a strong sales pitch, the technology could penetrate new markets for a gun industry that is
facing long-term declines in household and personal gun ownership, putting more families at risk
from the well-documented hazards that accompany bringing a gun into a previously gun-free
And always remember more guns means less crime.

Well, that is what the left-leaning, liberal media would have been saying if someone attacked Obama.

The FUSE social movement came up with brilliant strategy to pack the school board. Their Facebook announcement about their original petition to expand the school board said "Increasing the number of board members would ease the time-commitment overload for current board members by distributing the extensive responsibilities to more individuals". For some reason they forgot to mention the fact four new members could shift the votes on the board in a direction they favor.
Back in the 1940s President Franklin Roosevelt tried but failed to get a law though Congress allowing him to pack the Supreme Court by expanding the number of justices so he could have a court majority favoring his New Deal agenda. As part of the evolution of the FUSE movement perhaps we need to start thinking of FUSE as the School Board Packers (SB Packers).
While the SB Packers cannot appoint the additional school board members it may not really matter. When attendees at the annual meeting for the district passed the agenda item to expand the school board it was nearly the same as the SB Packers winning the game. Who would want to run for the school board and get the same grief the current school board members are getting except of course former school district employees with an ax to grind who have retired or left to teach in other districts or their ardent fans.
Oddly enough before writing caustic letters about fictional consolidators and real packers I had planned on writing a letter to the Advocate saying it was time for the school board to start exploring another referendum. The recall nonsense had faded away and the needed extra money has to come from somewhere. The last referendum went down in flames after the Advocate carried some articles saying how much teachers were paid. That all changed with Act 10 and the teachers were forced to sacrifice. With a few exceptions the school board seems to have been struggling to cut costs so perhaps it was time for the taxpayers to also sacrifice to keep the Spooner schools from declining. But the SB Packers have changed the game.
Will something positive come from all of this after all? If you look at the FUSE Facebook page it sounds like FUSE has the best of intentions but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Hopefully we do not eventually learn FUSE really means 'Facilitating the Unpopular Superintendent's Exit' and the packed school board next April resembles a phoenix arising from the ashes of a pre-Act 10 teachers union.
Note: the public meeting to vote on expanding the school board occurs on Monday October 19th when TWW and Mrs. TWW will be at the body shop in Duluth getting something fixed so cannot vote. It is not likely the vote to expand will fail but one never knows.

"The questioner mistakenly believes there are no more handguns in Australia. And Hillary seems to think there are no legal issues involved in government efforts to restrict gun rights or institute forced buybacks; no mention of the Second Amendment and I suppose in her mind if she gets four years of picked Supreme Court justices, in effect we won't have a Second Amendment. Some sort of mandatory government buyback of weapons is, she said, "worth considering on the national level if that could be arranged."

How? The answer lies in the nature of the country's Electoral College and how it bases selection of the president on the U.S. Census, which in turn credits states for total populations of both legal and illegal residents. The result is that states like Florida and California, which sizeable populations of illegals live in, carry more clout for their number of electoral votes."

TWW has not contributed to the mess since nobody reads this blog so it does not make anyone famous.

There’s no doubt about it. Suddenly, for example, there have been several shootings in movie theaters, and the number of shootings of four or more persons at a time has increased quite a bit over the past couple years. The media, without a doubt, has a role in facilitating more events. There is research that shows that fewer headlines can equal fewer incidents and vice versa. The repeated nature of the showing of the event serves to spread or accelerate the transmission of the behavior."

Notice how the survey people were nice enough to throw in some of the scientists who actually study climate in their sample. If TWW remembers right one leading denier said most of the other skeptics he knows think the climate has warmed but that humans play a small role in it. In other words they believe in climate change caused by humans but do not think humans are the main cause.
What this survey may have measured was how much being indoctrinated by liberal values in a university setting by either classes or group pressure to conform influences how they think.
The article also says: " In fact, cultural and political values do seem to play a role among scientists. Those who believed that global temperatures are rising were more egalitarian, more communitarian and more liberal than those who did not, the survey revealed."
ps. last month TWW's leased from the power coop solar panels generated 600kw of the electricity Mrs. TWW used. How many of the true believers in climate change caused by humans can claim they are doing as much to save the world?
