Proper threat assessment

Proper threat assessment August 25, 2012



To start, I play a lot of Magic: The Gathering. One of the skills that takes a long time to learn in multi-player game, is threat assessment. That is, to figure out who at the table is the biggest threat to you, and to deal with them appropriately. It’s not straightforward, and can very based on the deck you’re playing, the players, and whats in play already.

In short, threat assessment can be hard.

Maryland delegate Don H. Dwyer Jr has used his threat assessment skills, and has determined that “the gays” are the biggest threat to children.

Dwyer, a Tea Party Republican, has in the past suggested that homosexuals were a threat to children and that same-sex marriage would lead to homosexuality being taught in schools.

Nothing new about that, it’s standard thinking we’re used to from current mainstream conservatives. The real issue, is that Dwyer has missed the real threat to children. Sure, he knows about the gays, and their secret Spongebob agenda.

But does he know about a real threat, right in his hometown to the well being and safety of children? A terrifying threat to parents right in his district? The #1 thing that Dwyer should worry about harming children is……Him.

Maryland delegate Don H. Dwyer Jr was drinking with another man on his boat on the Magothy River in Pasadena around 7pm when his boat struck a smaller vessel with five children on board.

Four of the children were injured with one, a five year old girl, taken by helicopter to Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.



Little piece of advice here Dwyer? Stop worrying so much about other people’s sex lives. Spend  less time being a bigoted asshole, and a lot more time “not drunkenly driving your boat into children.”
