« Bill Clinton in Western PA | Main | Schwartz Calls on EPA To Clean Our Water »

March 10, 2008



John John time I come across a story about a child who drowns...I'll pass it along so you can post it under the header of 'protecting our pools' instead of our children.

from the CDC...
"In 2004, there were 3,308 unintentional fatal drownings in the United States, averaging nine people per day." (War in Iraq started March 20, date, 3980 soldiers killed (from 5 years = 1825 days... or slighty over 2 deaths on average per day...compared to the 9 per day that drown)

Where's the outrage? Where's the indignation? KIDS ARE DYING AND YOU DON'T CARE!!!! Are you a puppet of the pool/spa lobby? Does Al Pine, of Pgh based Alpine Pools have you on his payroll? Where are the calls from Barrack to withdrawl us from water??? Where's the fullpage ad attacking General Aquaman (next to Robin, the LAMEST superhero ever...he talks to fish...big friggin whoop) in the New York Times????

And more from the CDC
"Between 2000 and 2004, the fatal unintentional drowning rate for African Americans overall was 1.3 times that of whites. However, in certain age groups it was even higher. For example, the fatal unintentional drowning rate for 5-14 year old African Americans was 3.2 times higher than that for whites. "

And they are racist ta boot!! Where's Jesse Jackson? Someone call Al Sharpton...these killing bodies of water commit a greater sin than murder...RACISM!!

Or maybe, just maybe, your 'gun' story is just another example of poor parenting and inattentiveness rather than any implication or interpretation of the 2nd amendment.

Just a thought.

have a great day. :)

tyler, we have regulations to keep pools safe. Pools but not guns...


Ah yes, but pools, which are not designed to kill people...are doing so at an alarming high rate, despite the regulations.

And guns, which according to some ARE designed to kill people, arent killing as much (considering the HUGE number of guns versus the smaller number of pools).

So, in reality, whats the bigger danger? Item 1 that is supposed to be safe but is in reality a killing machine? Or item 2 which is supposed to be a killing machine but based on the numbers, really isn't.

Either way, I blame poor parenting in the story you link and not the guns. If those kids would have drowned, you wouldnt have mentioned it.



We have no gun regulations? Ridiculous assertion.

Safety materials (literature, gun locks) are available FREE from the NRA and from virtually EVERY gun shop in PA (See Project ChildSafe, for instance). This is certainly a tragedy, but an avoidable one.
