Spending that money in Iraq and Afghanistan was a mistake. The narrative at the time was that we were protecting them from terrorist organizations. Will the narrative regarding Ukraine change in 20 years? Time will tell. Regardless, just because we spent all that money then (which was a mistake), doesn't mean we should head down the same path now. You don't get out of debt by spending more elsewhere. Gotta pay the bills at home first. Same applies to the PPP and other stuff you mentioned.
Regarding the fire or other shooter situations, well, in case of a fire the doors can be... wait for it... unlocked. Just like when school lets out for the day, they unlock the doors. Magical. During school hours, the inside is secure.
And regarding the officers allegedly not going in for 40 minutes. I'm not saying that didn't happen so don't look at "allegedly" and assume I'm calling that a lie. I'm just saying allegedly because every time a major story comes out regarding anything ever, the final facts end up being different than the initial reports. That said, what it looks like is an off-duty border patrol agent is the one who went in. Also law enforcement but built a little different since they work the border. They're used to conflict. The problem with many small town police agencies is they don't go through rigorous training such as reality based training and active shooter scenarios. They're simply mentally unprepared. For every situation you can point out like this where an officer failed, there's a situation where they prevented something big but they aren't reported on because tragedy was avoided. I know of some personally. That said, the officers here failed those kids. And you're right, maybe more SROs wouldn't help. Those officers are in schools, often thinking they're going to a safe position where they won't have to do much and they disengage from the reality that something like that could happen. They're simply not mentally prepared to fight for lives so maybe that's not the solution.
That said, if we as a country are going to find solutions to our problems, let try responding with a little less sarcasm and "oh boys" and "here we goes." Less fighting, more conversing.

We are his first offer per his announcement on Twitter.
It’s exceptionalism. We think so many things can’t happen here. We’ve always had peaceful transfers of power (in all 250 years of our existence…)
again, had what happened on Jan 6 taken place anywhere else we’d view it as a coup attempt. Often coups fail. Sometimes they don’t.
Since I can tell you didn't pay much attention in school, what you quoted was a work of fiction. That means it's just a story he made up. I guess that should disqualify Stephen King or Cormac McCarthy from ever running from office with your logic.
He wanted antifa or counter-protesters to go after his minions so he could declare martial law and hold up the count. Once that was done the goal was to get uncertified electors in the close states he lost to submit their EVs for him and "expose" all the fraud.
