Anybody can still build in mountain view or wherever.

No they can't.

FTFA:

Even more mind-bogglingly, Mountain View is discussing new office development that would bring as many as 42,550 office workers to the city. But the city’s zoning plan only allows for a maximum of 7,000 new homes by 2030.

do you even read, brah?

Except, of course, that it was not "valid" at all.

"The final analyses from various subsequent inquiries concluded that in this context 'trick' was normal scientific or mathematical jargon for a neat way of handling data, in this case a statistical method used to bring two or more different kinds of data sets together in a legitimate fashion."

When you have to hide your own results, you're doing something wrong.

"The EPA notes that in fact, the evidence shows that the research community was fully aware of these issues and that no one was hiding or concealing them."

A lot of dedicated alarmists have tried to pretend that "the trick" was above-board... but it wasn't.

"...in this case a statistical method used to bring two or more different kinds of data sets together in a legitimate fashion."
"...the evidence shows that the research community was fully aware of these issues and that no one was hiding or concealing them."

In any other field, if a scientist had tried this sort of thing to hide a bad result, they'd be in deep trouble.

No, he's not joking.

The first armed responders to show up at the Fort Hood shooting were civilian base police.
Aaron Alexis wasn't confronted with serious armed resistance until civilian police showed up -- just one guard that he apparently got the jump on.
Tennesee armory: "Tennessee National Guard workers managed to take down a shooting suspect and hold him until police arrived..."
Fort Bragg: "Minor said that the gunman, who was firing at them, turned away. And as he did, he and Sgt. Edward Mongold tackled the man. "It was a fight for his life," Minor said. "It was a fight for our lives. Minor, Mongold and several other soldiers disarmed the shooter and held him for the military police.."

Apparently, the military bases in the incidents you linked to are real-life military bases, where for example many guards aren't allowed to load their weapons without specific orders, rather than the bristling-with-weapons-super-high-security-one-false-move-and-you're-dead military bases in your imagination.

True, some parts of military bases ARE exactly like you imagine. That's not where shootings have tended to happen, though, for obvious reasons.

Overdrawn? But I still have checks left!
