Let’s Stop With The Gun Control BS RE: White Settlement Church Shooting

Politicians are saying idiocies like, “Our representatives in Texas have left us open to these kinds of attacks,” he tweeted. “Time to change our representatives.”.

If you want to see what happens when there is NOT a gun free zone…this is it.  How many more shots would this lunatic have gotten off when the police responded?  It would have been 5-15 minutes for them to get there.  Guess what?  Stricter gun control would have disarmed the congregation and not the criminal.  Criminals do not follow laws written on paper.

This video points out the flaws with the responders and points out good procedures and training points for church security team members.  Talking about putting a hard reminder on churches needing security I will be pointing this out to our pastor.  time to plan for this at the beginning…instead of having this happen and we face this without being prepared like this church was.

I think something else that needs to be pointed out IMO is if someone is not acting in a normal way it’s time for the security team to escort the individual out.  Like the presenter says I know you want to be accommodating…but IMO safety has to come first.  Better to loose one than to loose two or more when the individual snaps.

One more thing the presenter points out.  If you are going to be a church security member…you best have your worldly and spiritual details in order because you will be expected to be the first one to face down this type of threat.  This shook me to my core and has also made me think about some things here with my own life and household that will get addressed in short order.

This video shows two murders and the killer himself being shot and killed by a responding church security team member.  If you are squeamish or cannot handle violence do not watch the following video.

For My Future Wife(and Lover) In That Order

i know how I will feel for her…but most importantly I know how she will feel for me.  Her feelings will draw out my instincts to protect and lead the household on the correct path.  The dancing, the closeness..the energies, will be something to behold.  It’s just a matter of time.  The visions that i do see are not detailed..except right now for her hair color…the rest is the feelings…and the dances…:)  i await her with great anticipation….

For My Lover
Two weeks in a Virginia jail
For my lover for my lover
Twenty thousand dollar bail
For my lover for my lover
[Chorus]
And everybody thinks
That I’m the fool
But they don’t get
Any love from you
The things we won’t do for love
I’d climb a mountain if I had to
And risk my life so I could have you
You, you, you…
Everyday I’m psychoanalyzed
For my lover for my lover
They dope me up and I tell them lies
For my lover for my lover
[Chorus]
I follow my heart
And leave my head to ponder
Deep in this love
No man can shake
I follow my heart
And leave my mind to wonder
Is this love worth
The sacrifices I make
Two weeks in a Virginia jail
For my lover for my lover
Twenty thousand dollar bail
For my lover for my lover
Everyday I’m psychoanalyzed
For my lover for my lover
They dope me up and I tell them lies
For my lover for my lover
[Chorus]

GAMECACHE UPDATE

So i ordered a  couple of pci-e network cards one for my machine and one for the girls tower.  Let’s see if that helps the eldest’s one game not crash the entire networking stack…:)  Realteks are decent if you aren’t doing heavy networking stuff like I am doing..it will take a couple of weeks for them to come in(ordered from mainland china on the boat).

Now for the Gamecache update.  I really didn’t need to do this..but i figured why not?  I moved my battle.net games(which are the only ones i play…being SC2 and D3)…to my own iscsi target on the FreeNAS.  It’s a total of 40 gigs…but it’s 40 gigs i do not have to download again when i scrub my computer(which I am going to be doing soon as I am having weird video issues…had similar issues on the girls tower and a scrub fixed them).

My workstation actually runs nearly everything off the FreeNAs in one way or another.  My Douments, Music, videos, Downloads actually run from an SMB share.  I use most of the files myself and there’s many that are used to rebuild internal machines when they get scrubbed.  What does the gamecache give me that the smb share doesn’t?  First, is speed.  SMB is not multi-threaded so it does not take advantage of the multiple cores i have going.  Secondly I do not want anyone else possibly messing up the game files.

 

Everything has ZFS snapshots going as well so if something goes boom..i can just rollback that dataset or even individual files…:)  Kinds neat..:)

Toss A Coin

When a humble bard
Graced a ride along
With Geralt of Rivia
Along came this song

From when the White Wolf fought
A silver-tongued devil
His army of elves
At his hooves did they revel

They came after me
With masterful deceit
Broke down my lute
And they kicked in my teeth

While the devil’s horns
Minced our tender meat
And so cried the Witcher
He can’t be bleat

Toss a coin to your Witcher
O’ Valley of Plenty
O’ Valley of Plenty
O’

Toss a coin to Your Witcher
O’ Valley of Plenty

At the edge of the world
Fight the mighty horde
That bashes and breaks you
And brings you to mourn

He thrust every elf
Far back on the shelf
High up on the mountain
From whence it came

He wiped out your pest
Got kicked in his chest
He’s a friend of humanity
So give him the rest

That’s my epic tale
Our champion prevailed
Defeated the villain
Now pour him some ale

Toss a coin to your Witcher
O’ Valley of Plenty
O’ Valley of Plenty
O’

Toss a coin to your Witcher
And friend of humanity

Toss a coin to your Witcher
O’ Valley of Plenty
O’ Valley of Plenty
O’
And friend of humanity

Toss a coin to your Witcher
O’ Valley of Plenty
O’ Valley of Plenty
O’

Toss a coin to your Witcher
A friend of humanity
