Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

As Alice said, we have to believe 6 impossible things before breakfast:

@MSignorile: So, we're supposed to kill the teachers' unions, keep paying them crap, and now turn them into marksmen and armed guards?

I can believe way more than that.

4. Our school system received notice

Last night that we will have police officers at each elementary school starting today. Since no laws can change overnight this is a solution for now.

5. I see we have "aerial" eyes in the sky added to the extra police and guards at the elem. and

middle schools... The highschools already have metal detectors and guards for a number of years now.

10. And who's going to pay for that?

As I drove to work this morning, along the NY/CT border just south of Newtown, I passed a car with CT plates whose bumper sticker read: "T"axed "E"nough "A"lready.

Nice. You think that guy wants to pay higher taxes for more police officers? Or does he expect the officers we already have to do this job without pay, out of some moral imperative?

2. Attempts to control the effect

without correcting the cause.

Similar incidents in the UK led to tighter and tighter gun controls.

7. Do any Repugs who advocate all this send their own kids to public schools?

Or maybe they just don't give a **** about the rest of us.

9. Alice didn't say it -- the White Queen did

And Alice objected that "one can't believe impossible things."
