  1. What will it take for this country to wake up an get rid of its Rambo-gun loving obsession? Must BAN all assault weapons an pass Universal Background Check!!

  2. I remember visiting Austin around 2010/2011 during both summers. 6th street was amazing at that time. Drink specials, late night pizza windows, Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz theater. The bars would be pack, but not crazy packed. And they were a few college douches here and there, but still plenty of cool interesting people. I got drunk several times, and had an amazing time! But most of all, I felt safe, not in danger in anyway. I feel like I visited Austin at a good time, when the scene was still chill. Were it was popular, but not TOO popular, when the bars were still fun. Before the frat douche bags took over… I haven’t been back since. And I heard the area got worse. To the point where locals don’t even like going there anymore. Too many tourists and college douche bags. There would be bar fights every weekend. It sucked to see this magical utopian college town that I once remembered fondly, is no more. And I feel this incident officially kills it for everyone.

  3. “Training in morals and good conduct is far more important than
    Book learning. A child that is cleanly, agreeable, of good character,
    Well-behaved, even though he be ignorant, is preferable to a child
    That is rude, unwashed, ill-natured, and yet becoming deeply versed
    In all the sciences and arts. The reason for this is that the child
    who Conducts himself well, even though he be ignorant, is of benefit to
    Others, while an ill-natured, ill-behaved child is corrupted and
    Harmful To others, even though he be learned. If, however, the child be
    Trained to be both learned and good, the result is light upon light”.
