Crazy week
« on: October 05, 2015, 05:07:04 PM »
Well, just when ya think stuff can't happen in your community, along comes some nut bag and shoots up a school. I'm sure most of you have heard of the shooting in Roseburg, Or. For us it's just down the road. What the hell is wrong with our young people these days? Sure makes one want to move farther out in the woods. I guess all we can do is protect your loved ones yourself. Rant over...... ::)

I'm glad I'm not in that turmoil.  I feel for ya.  About all we can do anymore is lock and load and be ready at all times.   I have a sinking feeling it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

I second your rant Dean.  I have that same sinking feeling Sal.

After the shooting, the school where I work issued an 'active shooter prepared response' document that it gave to all teachers.  the doc contained a set of instructions on what to do in the event of a shooting.  It is prudent to prepare, but it makes me worry about the future and where all of this is going.

It's getting scary for sure. 

It's not just gun crime either.  It's being able to get anything at all done anymore.  You should see this clusterf*** I'm going through with this accident.  It's unbelievable.   There's nothing anyone can just get done easily any more.  Too much red tape, too much money, too many people willing to scam anyone they feel might be a good victim.

I wondered how close that was to you, i know you live in that region of OR.   

Yes, very scary.  There's always scary stuff going on.  Big cities, small towns, close by, far away.  It really is sad what some people feel compelled to do.

On that note, I have always had a little fantasy that I will grow up and move away and life in the woods as a happy hermit.  Sometimes that idea is still very appealing, but I also like my life as it is, trying to stay happily  involved with my community.  I guess all we can do is keep calm, carry on, and do what we can to help make our own little worlds a better place.

Yours are just all in office so they just legislate their chaos.

We just had a murder here in Sun Valley Friday night and the perp is unknown yet. That scares my roomie to no end.  Poor woman is going to be a mess when the excrement really hits the air conditioning.
