The Coffee Shop / guns vs doctors
August 22, 2009, 10:36:19 PM
Number of physicians in the US: 700,000.

Accidental deaths
caused by physicians per year: 120,000.

Accidental deaths per physician: 0.171 (U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services)

Number of gun owners in the US: 80,000,000.

Number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups): 1,500.

Accidental deaths per gun owner: 0.0000188

Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

"FACT: Not everyone has a gun, but everyone has at least one Doctor."

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets out of hand. As a Public Health Measure, the statistics on Lawyers have been withheld for fear that the shock could cause people to seek medical aid.

The Coffee Shop / I am so angry!!!!!!!!!!
March 11, 2008, 08:24:16 PM
 On Monday my daughter goes to school and I went to work and my daughter calls me crying from school and wants to go home, her reason was that another girl in her class threatened to stab her !!!!!!!! I called the school and reported this to the pricipal and he assured me that he would take care of it. I never heard back from the principal so I called back and he said that the girl was taking a test and he wanted to let her finish before he talked to her !!!!!!!!!!! In the mean time I talked to my daughter and found out that this other girl had a box knife and was flashing it around while in class. By now I am scared and my blood is boiling, so I called and spoke with sheriff Hanks who stated that he would call the school and report the weapon and find out what was going on and get involved. Sheriff Hanks did send an officer to my house and took my girls' statements that day. The pricipal never called me back or the sheriff!!!! I have found out from other students that the girl had pepper spray and the box cutter in her pocession. So today I went to the school to talk to the principal and he had this girl in his office and we joined in. The girl set and laughed during our meeting and the principal sent the girls back to class!!!!!!! I was informed by the principal that pepper spray and a box cutter were NOT weapons!!!!! I ask him if he thought that the thousand of victims of 9-11 would agree with his theory of what is considered a weapon????? He then pulled out of an UNLOCKED cabinet in his office knifes and other things that he has confinscated from students and said that none of these things were considered weapons either???? HUH then why did he have them??? HUH where was the box cutter and pepper spray...well he gave them back to the girl!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLLY COW!!!!!!!!! This girl lives in Independence and goes to Elk Valley and he did not suspend her even though the handbook says that they will suspend any child who brings a weapon to the school. I am very angry and have been on the phone with School board members and three of them acted concerned and said that they would talk to the pricipal. I am just blown away by the ignorance of our principal and very disappointed and angry. What do all of you think of this situation and what would you do if the life of your child was threatened and the person that is supposed to inforce the rules did nothing to protect your child??? Some one please help me and give me some ideas and opinions!!

Miscellaneous / every moms list to santa??
December 11, 2007, 10:50:30 PM
Dear Santa,

I've been a good mom all year. I've fed, cleaned and cuddled my
children on demand, visited the doctor's office more than my doctor and
sixty-two cases of candy bars to raise money to plant a shade tree on
the school playground. I was hoping you could spread my list out over
several Christmases, since I had to write this letter with my son's
red  crayon, on the back of a receipt in the laundry room between
and who knows when I'll find any more free time in the next 18 years.

Here are my Christmas wishes:

I'd like a pair of legs that don't ache (in any color, except purple,
Which I already have) and arms that don't hurt or flap in the breeze,
but are strong enough to pull my screaming child out of the candy
aisle in the grocery store. I'd also like a waist, since I lost mine
somewhere in the seventh month of my last pregnancy.

If you're hauling big ticket items this year I'd like fingerprint
Resistant windows and a radio that only plays adult music, a
television that doesn't broadcast any programs containing talking
animals, and a  refrigerator with a secret compartment behind the
crisper where I can hide to talk on the phone.

On the practical side, I could use a talking doll that says, "Yes,
Mommy"  to boost my parental confidence, along with two kids who don't
fight and Three pairs of jeans that will zip all the way up without
the use of power tools.

I could also use a recording of Tibetan monks chanting "Don't eat in
The living room" and "Take your hands off your brother," because my
voice seems to be just out of my children's hearing range and can only
heard by the dog.

If it's too late to find any of these products, I'd settle for enough
Time to brush my teeth and comb my hair in the same morning, or the
luxury of eating food warmer than room temperature without it being
served in a Styrofoam container.

If you don't mind, I could also use a few Christmas miracles to
Brighten The holiday season. Would it be too much trouble to declare
ketchup a vegetable? It will clear my conscience immensely. It would be
if you could coerce my children to help around the house without
demanding payment as if they were the bosses of an organized crime

Well, Santa, the buzzer on the dryer is calling and my son saw my
feet under the laundry room door. I think he wants his crayon back.
Have a
safe Trip and remember to leave your wet boots by the door and come
in and dry off So you don't catch cold.

Help yourself to cookies on the table but don't eat too many or leave
Crumbs on the carpet.

Yours Always,


P.S. One more can cancel all my requests if you can keep
My children young enough to believe in Santa.
