The wrong decision

Texas DPS director Steve McGraw says with the benefit of hindsight, the Uvalde cops made the wrong decision not to interrupt what they thought was a barricaded situation instead of an active shooter one. They also held back a Border Patrol tactical team that quickly arrived and eventually was allowed to engage the shooter and kill him. But only after the 19 children and two teachers had been killed. Makes little sense given that the killer’s firing was going on throughout.

Cowardly cops

Just like at Columbine and Parkland, Uvalde cops and state troopers waited outside Robb Elementary for nearly an hour while the killing was going on. Milling around. While parents frantically urged them to go in, but they wouldn’t. Some of the parents were arrested. It took a Border Patrol unit (some reports say just one BP officer) to go in and kill the killer. Disgraceful. Utterly shameful.

Bronco bites Uvalde

Mr. Boilerplate, who rarely says anything but platitudes, just couldn’t help himself when it came to the Uvalde massacre. To the divider-in-chief it all came down to his anti-cop attitudes and, uh, George Floyd? Comparing 4th graders to a thug. Uh huh.

UPDATE: Lyin’ Biden, the latest divider-in-chief, emphasizes his concern for Floyd, setting aside the slain fourth graders and teachers.

EUVs

Looking over the VW ID.4 and the Chevy Bolt (“See the USA, in your Chevrolet”). Both start about $33,000 for the basic model. Both are little boxes on wheels but the interiors are interesting. Really hate being pushed into this by the government. Will probably be having to get a used Toyota Prius for the Aggie. A used gas model would be so much cheaper. Fortunately don’t have to decide now. Once gas reaches $10 a gallon in Lyin’ Biden’s on-purpose “incredible transition,” that will be the time to get it on.

UPDATE: The Nissan Leaf’s basic model starts at only $20,000 and Nissan, in general, has a better reputation than either VW or Chevy. Toyota, however…

Sadness

“Horrible news: Fifteen have died in a shooting at Robb elementary school, according to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who said there are 14 students and one teacher killed. The shooter is dead.”

UPDATE: More

MORE: Updated numbers of victims: 19 children and 2 adults. A real massacre.

AND: One commenter at Fox News: “We’ve had guns in our culture for a very long time and never had these issues. About 40 years ago, tons of people in my area in had rifles and shotguns during hunting season. We never had any problems. The problem in this country is moral decay and a serious lack of leadership and common sense, not guns.”

AND+: And, of course, the teachers and staff were forbidden by law from carrying. Easy pickins for Mr. Killer. Way to go!

“Incredible transition”

Even Lyin’ Biden tells the truth now and then.

“[When] it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden said.”

Or, even more hopefully, you will be gone long before that happens. Though millions will be impoverished along the way. Who’s he working for? It sure ain’t us.
