If most normal parents in the world wanted the adults in charge of their children AT A SUMMER CAMP armed (note the capitalized words, the ones you decided to excise, for reasons known only to yourself ...


They're "excised" because I copied the quote from the text block directly above it. Feel free to imagine that I'm terrified of your words, LOL, if that's what the Field wants.

If most normal parents in the world wanted the adults in charge of their children AT A SUMMER CAMP armed (note the capitalized words, the ones you decided to excise, for reasons known only to yourself ... although some of us can guess), then ... and this may just be me ... I'd expect to see the adults in charge of children at summer camps armed. In at least a good proportion of cases.

And yet ... I don't.


Let's see. Are you at a summer camp?

I'd expect to see the adults in charge of children at summer camps armed. In at least a good proportion of cases.

And, of course, you're intimately involved with the policies of summer camps the world over, right?

My guess, and I state it as a guess rather than using it as evidence as would Your Sophistry, is that many US Democrats want the people at their children's summer camps armed. And that in a good proportion of cases, at least in the US, they are, your not seeing them notwithstanding. I would also guess that many other countries at least have armed guards at summer camps, if just for the possible rabid animals.

You're betting some of the Norwegian parents in question are wishing "quite the opposite" -- a bit of a tangled web of words, but capable of being interpreted only as "wishing the adults at the summer camp had been armed".


I'm betting all of them--at least all of the "irrational indecent" ones--would rather their children had been defended by armed staff than that they were killed.

I know you look down on us irrational, indecent Americans, iverglas, but you must understand. Decency like yours, that prefers the purity of the Gun Control Reality Distortion Field and dead children to the impurity of armed defense and living children, is quite rare, at least in the States.

How much, and when's the payout?


If you escape the Field, the payout is clear thinking, freedom from programming and the fact that you no longer have to pretend that it's abnormal for parents to prefer armed resistance to dead children.

I know, I know, that will never be enough for Your Sophistry.
