The correct answer is 'nobody knows'. Oh, and if you don't take it apart, you won't have to put it back together, so if you don't 'imagine' you took it apart, you won't have to 'imagine' putting it back together. Win-win! Ready for round 2?

OK I'll be honest. Nobody really knows. There are 'theories' but a factual root is lost to history. I guess the most probable explanation is that without the 'D', the 'I' would be hardened, Making it sound nothing like it's namesake. That's as close as it gets...
Of course, just calling it the 'ice box' was way too complicated, right?

So, President Trump, it's been more than a year. What have you done for us lately?
Obama fumbled with the nomination of anti-gun Trojan horse Merrick Garland. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) made the recovery, and President Donald J. Trump completed the pass with a touchdown named Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. President Trump has appointed 23 lower court judges, with 61 pending nominees in the lower courts.
War On Terror
ISIS peaked under the weak leadership of Obama, who put notorious restrictions on military leaders in the field. President Trump unleashed the professionals, and the dedication and competence of the American military were brought to bear on the Islamic State without meddling from Washington. Even liberal Politifact conceded that ISIS has lost over 95% of their territory, and wounded their leader Al Baghdadi, driving him into hiding.
Exposed The Media Bias
The media tried to slime the President by saying his tax cuts are a sop to the wealthy. In fact, there has been a cascade of good news, including bonuses and pay increases across the country. Wage growth is driving inflation, as capital that was sidelined in the Obama comes flooding back into the market, creating the jobs that have eluded Americans for so long.
President Trump sent Obamacare through the Senate twice, only to have it killed by RINOs like Susan Collins and John McCain. Short of that, he did the next best thing: President Trump destroyed the funding mechanism for the Obamacare beast: the illegitimate tax on all Americans known as the "individual mandate". President Trump has gotten rid of the worst of Obamacare, and if he can get the numbers, will dispatch the beast once and for all.
Last year, the White House said that "agencies issued 67 deregulatory actions while imposing only three new regulatory actions"; that's a 22:1 ratio for the repeal of regulations, saving Americans $8.1 Billion in regulatory costs. More are planned for this year, with an estimated $9.8 Billion in savings from repealed regulations this year. In this Administration, agencies have withdrawn or delayed 1,579 planned regulatory actions.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership was a redistribution of wealth scheme disguised as a trade deal, and a huge legacy project of Obama. It was going to empower foreign entities to make binding decisions that directly impacted the United States' economy, and further erode wage growth and job creation within our country. President Trump killed TPP right out of the gate, delivering on his promise to stand up for American manufacturing jobs and stop bad trade deals.
Recognizing Jerusalem As The Capitol Of Israel
President Trump took the bold move by enforcing a law that was passed with overwhelming bipartisan support in the 1990's and signed by President Bill Clinton. No President since its passage has enforced the law, fearing a backlash from the Palestinians. President Trump showed conviction and moral clarity by recognizing the capital that Israel has claimed since 1948, and the ancestral home of the Jewish people.
Paris Climate Accords
In accordance with his America First policies, President Trump wasn't about to let a deal made by President Obama to pay American money to lower economic productivity. President Trump is a jobs president, and he isn't about to disadvantage the United States when China and others have a horrible track record in keeping their word on international agreements. Trump puts American jobs before international pressure on dubious science.
Iran Nuclear Deal
Speaking of bad deals made by Obama, President Trump decertified the Iran Nuclear Deal in the face of blatant violations by the Iranians. President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry worked feverishly in the second term to arm the Iranians with tens of billions of dollars to buy their cooperation. President Trump put an end to the facade, saying America will withdraw completely if Iran continues down their path to war. President Trump standing up to the biggest bully in central Asia sends a message of strength to the world after it has known 8 years of weakness under Obama.
Giving The Media A Taste Of Their Own
President Trump makes the media INSANE because they can't bring him down; in their rage, they play right into his hands. Sharyl Attkisson, veteran of CBS news commented on the media calling conservative news fake, "Each time [the media] cried fake news, Donald Trump called them 'fake news' until he'd co-opted the term so completely that even those who [were] originally promoting it started running from it -- including the Washington Post."
Not bad, Mr. President. Considering the obstructionists in Congress, not bad a all. Looking forward to the end of year report next February....
Exactly right...separation of powers. ..Supreme Court is to interpret the Constitution, not legislate law..which is the power of Congress.
All three branches of government are empowered to make their own 'interpretation' of the constitution. Yes, really. As for judges 'legislating from the bench', there's a remedy for that. Impeachment and subsequent removal. That, too, is a function of the legislative branch.
Same ol' leftist playbook, with one variation - not only are the student here useful idiots, they're youthful, useful idiots.
It's such a travesty to see how these young people have been misled so badly. They actually think that by laying down their arms, the homicidal maniac on the other end of the gun will do the same. Lambs to the slaughter.
It was against the law to take a firearm onto the school grounds then, it is now, and (hopefully) will not be for long. It's about time to put an end to this madness ans let the school staff defend their charges like they're supposed to be able to.
And that's a 9mm pistol round. Mike
Ha! I had a guy asked me one time whether I'd prefer to be shot with a 9mm or a .45.
My answer was 'neither, they both hurt like a bitch'.
Why is it you fools think democrats want all guns banned when we own as many or more than you on the right?
Sorry, Roy, you need to check your statistics and 'fess up to fake news. Here's the truth:
"Not surprisingly, gun ownership is strongly correlated with political party, with Republicans much more likely to own guns than Democrats.... That gap between the political parties has grown significantly since he early 1990s, as fewer and fewer Democrat and Independent households own guns.... Younger Democrats are less likely to own guns than older Democrats, but there’s very little difference between Republicans of different age groups."

Why Thank You, Sir. Just for that, you may call me Larry.
aint no such thing
You don't know about the Marine Corps Pecking Order? Oh, yeah, it's a 'thing'. It gives any Marine the authority to overrule any navy orders or routine simply on a whim. It's because of their superior intellect and overwhelming charm. You were in the navy and don't know about that? Hmm. Didn't spend much time around Marines, did you? I remember one story about a group of salties who were 'required' to play poker with a group of well-seasoned Marines one night. By the end of the night, they had not only lost every penny they had but were forced to sign over their paychecks for the next four months. There was the one who refused and was keel-hauled for his insolence, and then he still
had to pay up.
Oh, yes. You don't want to cross a Marine, they can be very 'exacting' in their application of 'The Code'.
Best just pay up, OK?

I said that to Mothers Against Guns. I also mentioned a proposal I heard to issue all Females on campus concealed carry permits. They seemed to like that idea.
Good. The more the safer. One thing to know about these 'mass shooters', they're cowards. They attack at the weakest point when they know there will be little or no resistance and maximum damage. Show them an armed classroom guard and they'll run a mile before attacking it.
I have a better idea, Larry: Have 'OldSailor65' hold 'Ancient* Mariner' BadBobby to the honorable tradition of Squids paying off IOUs to their Marines betters.
Yeah, go for it. I forgot all about the Marine Corps Pecking Order. Tell him I need one too, mine's getting a little ratty.

That is what I mean. Cops are not allowed to do some of these things. England does this stuff. They have cameras on you every inch of the way.
I don't care if they do that stuff, so long as it will not turn into a slavery or abusive dominance, which is what our current system always does.
It's a rock and a hard place then, isn't it? You either give them the ability to investigate what you 'might' do, or you make them wait until there's a crime committed. Can't have it both ways. Remember this, you are your own first line of defense, always. Oh, and when seconds matter, the police are only minutes away...
I have lost count.
Oh dear. Maybe you should start sending him the bill, after all, it's only 'fair', right?
