In an interview on MSNBC, student David Hogg defended Scot Peterson, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School resource officer and Broward County Sheriff's deputy criticized by President Trump and local law enforcement for not entering the building during the shooting. Three other officers from the same department were also reported by CNN to have arrived on scene and taken cover behind their vehicles before deputies from a neighboring department arrived. "He -- just like every other police officer out there at heart -- is a good person. He didn't take action in this event, and I can't explain why ... there are no words to explain why he wouldn't take action to take out this individual, but I think it's a good example of if he didn't take action and four others didn't, I mean, who does?" student David Hogg said in an interview on MSNBC.

As of the final days of August, the United States has seen more than 200 mass shootings in 2015. The murder of WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward on Wednesday during an on-air broadcast brought the issue of guns back to the forefront of the political debate. Hours after the incident, 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tweeted her support for the immediate tightening of gun laws. Across the aisle, Republican contenders also expressed sympathy and grief, but dismissed the call for stricter gun legislation, citing other factors -- mental health, poor law enforcement -- as the causes of America's gun violence problem. One candidate asked, "What law in the world could have prevented him from killing them?" read more

The AFL blocked Mouncey from entering last year's AFLW draft after she had played several games for Ainslie in the ACT women's league. She wants to play in Victoria against the state's top AFLW talent in 2018. Previously, Mouncey would have had to apply to the individual league she wanted to play for and be given clearance, but the ruling means she is automatically accepted into any league under the AFL umbrella. read more

SAN DIEGO -- In a sharp rebuke of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the California Democratic Party has declined to endorse the state's own senior senator in her bid for reelection. Riven by conflict between progressive and more moderate forces at the state party's annual convention here, delegates favored Feinstein's progressive rival, state Senate leader Kevin de León, over Feinstein by a 54 percent to 37 percent margin, according to results announced Sunday. read more


What do you make of the GOP push to get everyone into trade school?

I would make of it that you are making a misstatement of the idea ... not everyone should go.....

Even Obama touted vocational training ..

Its a perfectly reasonable alternative to going to College. We need the trade schools for renewable energy installations for instance. Aviation is in dire need of mechanics, and pilots ...

As Snoofy said ...

Try using meaningful, valid criticisms ...

Lets broaden the scope ... to include high school sports ...

Transgender wrestler wins second straight Texas girls' high school title

Its odd to me ...

We are going through a great phase of transforming the conversation about sexual harassment and abuse. Yet when I look at that picture of MackBeggs putting that young lady in a neck hold, I can't help but think its sending the opposite message.

OK, this is the world progressives wanted, isn't it?

I am not against transgender individuals by any stretch, but I find them competing against cisgender women to be a bit of an stretch. I realize its a fine line, but something has to give. Because in the future, if you think getting young women to participate in sports if they have to compete with "men" going to be easy, you have another thing coming.

Perhaps you believe this is a good thing, I look forward to your perspective.
