Hysterical Headlines (Funny or Absurd) for June 6th – Department of Education/ATF it's all the same right?
Bottom Line: Your daily doses of nonsense in the media and my takes on them...
School safety panel set up after Parkland shooting will not look at guns, DeVos says The Associated Press – Sun Sentinel
Excerpt: The federal school safety commission set up after the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will not examine the role of guns in school violence, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said Tuesday.
Hot Take: Umm and this is a news story? What in the world would the Department of Education be doing in reviewing policy governing "the role of guns in school violence". Aside from the fact that the Department of Education is pretty hard to confuse with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives what could the Education Department do regardless? But then there's the inconvenient truth that you simply won't report because it doesn't fit a close-minded left wing political agenda. That far more lives are saved by lawful gun ownership than ever taken by them and lawful gun owners are 50% less likely to commit any crime. What silly me talking about educating people with facts when we're talking about our education system.
Don't Believe the Hype About the Economy Katrina vanden Heuvel, Washington Post
Hot Take: Lol, yeah don't believe the job that you have and the paycheck you earn. Don't believe the money in your pocket and in your bank account. Don't believe the record retirement and investment savings in your brokerage accounts. Don't believe the record home equity you have in your home. No. Believe us at the Washington Post instead... That's a good one.
