How to Prepare for Disaster by The Elephant's Child

This has been a sad week. First someone was sending pipe bombs to President Trump’s detractors. The Media was quite sure it was President Trump or someone on his behalf. The people weren’t quite so sure. President Trump spoke out emphatically, and set the FBI on the case. They promptly found a fingerprint on one of the bombs, found the nutcase, and put him in jail. Excellent work by the FBI. We still don’t know if any of the mailed bombs would actually have blown up.

Then in Philadelphia, an Anti-Semite conducted a mass shooting in a synagogue where a religious ceremony was taking place, killing eleven people and wounding six, and 3 policemen as well.  I simply cannot understand how in today’s world some people cannot seem to allow others to have differing or opposing views. And I just don’t understand Anti-Semitism, nor how anyone can hold such crackpot ideas.

PJ Media published a useful article in response: “Everything You Think You Know About an Active Shooter Situation is wrong.” No one ever expects to be caught in such a situation, but knowing what to do if you are – is valuable information. Print out the article, teach your family and your friends.  It’s called ALICE training. There’s a video of a lawyer being attacked by a deranged shooter, that helps to explain how he stayed alive.

There are good people and bad people out there, and a smattering of nutcases, we don’t have any idea how many. All kinds of emergency situations might arise. Take the trouble to prepare as best you can. And while you’re at it, get a flu shot.



Democrat Leaders Announce Brief Moratorium On Calling For Political Violence by The Elephant's Child

Democrats said they would cease calling for violent attacks on conservatives “at least until this whole mail bomb thing is out of the news cycle.”

“Once all this blows over, we will resume demonizing our opponents and calling for mobs to harass people we disagree with in public,” said Maxine Waters at the press event. “We really thought our words would only incite violence against the right, and hadn’t really thought about it going back the other way. But now that we see how destructive and detrimental violence really is, we’ll just cool our jets for a bit.”

“We’re not saying we’re going to stop calling for violence altogether—we’re just gonna lay low for a while,” Hillary Clinton chimed in. “Then it’ll be back to business as usual.”
