    So you work for someplace small. Which is not what I was talking about at all.

    You can pretend all you like that GQP policies aren’t costing corporate America money, doesn’t matter to me. The guys in charge know what it costs them very well.

    Now, since you don’t think anyone does active shooter training :

    I’ll start with the Navy, but ALL government offices have to take the training.

    https://www.cnic.navy.mil/om/base_safety/active_shooter.html

    Take the Active Shooter Training via Naval Education and Training (CAC Enabled ONLY). Instructions for course access can be found on the Available Courses page.* * * * *

    And then there’s defend systems, which does live active shooter training as a business. And they ain’t losing money on that deal.

    Or how about a quote?

    https://www.inquirer.com/news/new-jersey/ups-shooting-new-jersey-gloucester-logan-township-20190114.html

    Logan Township Mayor Frank Minor said there are 18,000 workers at the industrial park and authorities routinely practice for emergency situations.

    “We do active shooting training drills all the time,” Minor said. “They were well prepared.”

    You can pretend whatever you wish, I can’t stop you. But I do guarantee you that CEO’s are not in the business of pretending about what affects the bottom line.

    Why can’t cons admit the direct and obvious correlation between numbers of guns and death rates by bullet per 100K population? It’s not a hidden relationship.

    Abstract

    Objectives. We examined the relationship between levels of household firearm ownership, as measured directly and by a proxy—the percentage of suicides committed with a firearm—and age-adjusted firearm homicide rates at the state level.

    Methods. We conducted a negative binomial regression analysis of panel data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Web-Based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting Systems database on gun ownership and firearm homicide rates across all 50 states during 1981 to 2010. We determined fixed effects for year, accounted for clustering within states with generalized estimating equations, and controlled for potential state-level confounders.

    Results. Gun ownership was a significant predictor of firearm homicide rates (incidence rate ratio = 1.009; 95% confidence interval = 1.004, 1.014). This model indicated that for each percentage point increase in gun ownership, the firearm homicide rate increased by 0.9%.

    Conclusions. We observed a robust correlation between higher levels of gun ownership and higher firearm homicide rates. Although we could not determine causation, we found that states with higher rates of gun ownership had disproportionately large numbers of deaths from firearm-related homicides.

    We could require evaluation by a competent medical practitioner. But we don’t.

    There is no guarantee this will work out in any particular way. Most of the cartoonists are taking the gloomy view.

    The righties are attacking big business now because the CEO’s aren’t liking the gross expenses coming from GQP policies, and are refusing to support the GQP any longer if they keep on down the dual roads of “more guns are always the solution” and “more race tensions turn out our voters”.

    Payne’s not making any sense today. So he’s up to his usual “standard”.

    I expect Payne is trying to consider the infrastructure bill as a subsidy. While it’s astonishingly ignorant to consider buying labor and services to repair bridges and highways as a subsidy, it’s a Payne toon. Ignorance is pretty standard stuff for Payne.

    When there are no good choices, you take the one that’s least bad.

    Not wasting further time and money in Afghanistan is the least bad choice.

    NOBODY, not the generals, not the Qublicans, not the British, NOBODY has any idea of what to do in Afghanistan that we will do, so it’s best to just leave it to the Afghans.

    Is that going to lead to a “good” outcome? No. Is the US staying there going to lead somehow to a “good” outcome? No. Leaving is the least bad option.

    Quite the number of dead contractors though.

    Seems to me that Goodwyn is trying to “cancel” the CEO’s.

    Got that right wing “cancel culture” thing going on today, eh? CEO’s have no right to any opinion or ideas besides blind support of the GQP, per Goodwyn and his toons.

    ROFL. Goodwyn, you helped make this bed, now lie in it and cry your eyes out.
