Really, after 35 years a registered democrat has flashbacks to an event in High School? Just now...

We hear people describing why we should ban guns, the possibility of the perp being racially motivated, the evils of racism, and/or how to protect schools, or people blaming the NRA.
I keep reading 'common sense gun laws' are needed. Exactly what common sense laws would have prevented this kid from getting his hands on his dad's shotgun & revolver? The typical shouting points about assault rifle bans & closing so-called gun show loopholes would have done nothing.
Yet no one seems to be asking why are kids or young adults, predominately white, committing these crimes. How does a child grow into a monster like this?
I'm just incredibly surprised seemingly no one in the news is asking if there are any cues in society that may be shaping them?

Yesterday, at Dixon High School in Illinois, there was a school shooter. He was stopped by an armed security guard who chased and shot him. BUT that story wasn't highlighted, anywhere. It showed up on CNN and CBS some 6 hours after it happened, and then only briefly.
So, we are teaching these crazy kids that they become famous by killing people, but when they are stopped, we don't talk about it?
7000 African Americans, 2500 of those children, killed annually by illegal guns in our inner cities, without one liberal demanding gun confiscation or blaming NRA, until suburban kids are murdered.

Google is a far bigger threat by many measures: the volume of information it gathers, the reach of its tracking and the time people spend on its sites and apps. Google Analytics is used on the sites of about half of the biggest companies in the U.S. and has a total reach of 30 million to 50 million sites. It even tracks you whether or not you are logged in.

After a tie match don't the judges convene in the ring with a cell phone or some form of access to video replay in order to determine a winner?
How old is that tradition?

As for opposition by Democrats, Republican Cory Gardner, who chairs an Asia subcommittee, said in an interview that they "want to play partisan politics."
California democrat Dianne Feinstein doesn't like that Pompeo supports traditional marriage. New Jersey democrat Cory Booker asked Pompeo if he thought “gay sex is a perversion.” Their new standard seems to be that any nominee who agrees with Trump is to be disqualified.
The fact that we have politicians actively obstructing the creation of a lawful government for the most powerful country in the world is infinitely more embarrassing than anything Trump can post on Twitter. Their hatred for him has caused them to abandon rational judgment.

The indictment contains no evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign, but it does show a systematic effort to discredit the result of the 2016 election. On the evidence so far, Trump has been the biggest victim of that effort.
So it's a question of objectivity and credibility.
Where were James Clapper and John Brennan when the Kremlin was meddling?
Answer: Colluding with Lynch and Comey to try to get Hillary elected.
Since there are now actual accusations against Russians there must also be actual connections to Americans and it will be interesting whether Mueller did go the extra mile and included the collusion by the Clinton campaign. That will be the defining moment for Mueller's objectivity.

Did the Russians feed Hillary questions that would come up in debates? Did the Russians tell Hillary not to go to Wisconsin, Michigan? Did the Russians influence the unpopular message of carrying on Obama's failed policies? Did the Russians marginalize Bernie Sanders?
No, Clinton defeated herself.

So basically the Russians did on Facebook and Twitter what Hillary, the DNC, and their lackey's at MSNBC, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, NY Times, and LA Times did. But with the Russians it was meddling, and for the DNC and media it's free speech. And they're STILL doing it trying to undermine the election.
What about the DNC's rigging of their primary to exclude Bernie?

Ok, so you're saying this justifies Trump using overseas manufacturers while at the same time saying America First?
What do you understand of competition? Rather than criticize, what is your solution? How do American companies compete with foreign manufacturers that outsource?
Even moving a manufacturing facility from a blue state to a red state draws criticism and outrage from the left.

Adidas and Puma are German companies, I believe. But I know, facts are subjective - to some.
Adidas currently outsources the majority of its production to China and other countries in Asia, where it manufactures around 300 million shoes yearly, mostly by hand.
More than three quarters of Puma overall products are manufacturedin these countries. China and Vietnam make up the lion share with more than a quarter each. While the majority of shoes being sourced in Vietnam, most of apparel products come from China.

Your link is still about the scientific community.
The article refers to a scientific corporation. Whereas universities should be free of the profit motive, therefore they don't face the same pressures. Yet this problem still exists. That's the difference I was referring to.
Apologies for the ambiguity.

How very mature you are.
I'm guessing that, despite the usual praise from the mainstream media, the polls weren't going in the democrats favor. Shutdowns usually end when one side or the other begins to fear the political damage.

If published research is not actually valid, it can’t be replicated. It delivers only an incidental finding, not scientific knowledge. Any subsequent findings based upon it will either be wrong or flawed in important ways.

It received little media coverage because these "Women's Marches" have so little to do with women any more. Just call it a "Progressives Wearing Bras" march. After all, I thought it was politically incorrect to refer to ourselves as "Women".
We celebrated the fact that one-year ago today, Trump was inaugurated as President . . . and Hillary wasn’t.

Where has Donny shown he can govern?
Apple repatriates $38 billion of offshore cash, as a direct result of Trump's tax policy.
Walmart raises it's entry level pay to $11/hr and doles out bonuses, as a direct result of Trump's tax policy.
Dow propels above 26,000.
People seem unable to separate Trump's persona from his policy and average Americans concern themselves with the economy above all else.
Not Americans. Some Americans.
They are meant to represent ALL Americans. And her insult was far broader than you imply.
And how else would you characterize those shouting Jew S A at his rallies? Or his white supremecist supporters?
As ignorant, belligerent and misguided, but exercising their constitutional right to be stupid.

The most important political fact of this latest melodrama is that democrats feel they can get away with it. They are essentially doing what GOP Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee tried in 2013 over repealing ObamaCare: Refuse to fund the government over an unrelated policy issue.
Democrats pilloried republicans for that one, Nancy Pelosi called them “legislative arsonists.” But now Schumer has rallied democrats, or perhaps they’ve rallied him, to shut down the government over an immigration deadline that is still six weeks away and has nothing to do with funding the government.
They want chaos in Washington because they think it will contribute to their emerging campaign narrative that Trump is a dangerous man who can’t govern and must be checked by the opposing party.
For a party that describes Americans as “deplorables” and illegal immigrants as “dreamers,” the audacity is impressive.
