This story doesn’t say it, because it hasn’t been widely reported yet, but this shooting took place in a town about 30 miles from where I am and where friends live. I was talking to one of them who lives in town there and the man who was killed is a locally well-known opponent of abortion.
The man who was shot in Owosso, Michigan (the high school nearby is currently on lockdown because the shooter is still at large) is known as “the abortion sign guy” (I don’t know his name, but I’m sure it’ll be reported soon. He’s had numerous complaints against him because he stands on street corners holding up signs with pictures of aborted babies.
The crazy flows both ways. I only wonder if the national media will report this with as much vigor as they do when the murder victim is pro-abortion and the killer is an anti-abortion wack-job — though it’s important to note that the killer’s motive isn’t yet known.
Update: Reports here are now that two people are dead, but this is unconfirmed.
A man pretending to be running for Congress and a woman pretending to be a prostitute in his employ walk into a Baltimore ACORN office. The pair tell the ACORN reps that they are planning to traffic in imported underage hookers from El Salvador and need assistance to obtain a housing loan for a brothel while getting around federal and state tax laws — all while laundering the brothel money into the man’s future congressional campaign. “Can you help us?”
Do the ACORN reps, A) Throw them out for being rotten human beings trying to break the law, or B) bend over backwards to help them.
You already know the answer. I’m sure they registered them to vote five or six times each as well.
What a great organization, and it’s nice that our president is so closely associated with this bunch:
The mysterious petty theft that President Barack Obama’s new computer chief committed at age 21 was shoplifting four dress shirts worth $134 from J.C. Penney.
A 1996 Montgomery County, Md., police report obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday under a public records law shows Vivek Kundra was observed by a security guard putting the men’s shirts into a shopping bag and leaving the store without paying. Sgt. Tom Stanton wrote that Kundra was arrested after a brief foot chase and the property was recovered.
Kundra pleaded guilty, paid a $100 fine and $55 in court courts and was ordered to do 80 hours of community service. The White House has called a “youthful indiscretion” long ago resolved.
Experience in wealth transfer and serving the community? This guy’s perfect for Obama’s administration! Incidentally, I have trouble considering something you did when you were 21 to be a “youthful indescretion” — especially when you were 21 only 13 years ago.
Sure, it was just four shirts instead of trillions of dollars, but you have to crawl before you can walk.
The hall of mug shots is filled with Hope and Change, so we might as well add the nation’s tech czar to the list. The good news is that Obama’s team, though they have visions of wealth transfer the likes of which this country has never seen before, have proven to be horribly inept crooks and cheats. That’s the only thing that might save us.
Who will be the next Obama czar or cabinet member? Pick one:
As the police sargeant who arrested Obama’s pal Henry Gates considers a defamation lawsuit against the Harvard Professor, I remembered a piece from the Chris Rock Show a few years ago that may help the professor in some areas when it comes to police relations (language warning):
Concerning the arrest of Obama’s friend, Harvard Professor Henry “I’ll meet your mama outside” Gates, the Fraternal Order of Police issued a statement condemning Obama’s “stupidly” comment, as well as Obama’s instinctive assumption that the arrest was racially motivated.
Why did Obama shoot from the hip with that comment about the police officer without doing his trademark pause to think through the implications of what he was about to say? It might have something to do with the fact that the Fraternal Order of Police endorsed McCain for president.
If the FOP had endorsed Obama and were already in his pocket, do you think the politician seeking re-election in Obama would have caught himself before he said what the community organizer seeking retribution in Obama wanted to say?
Heck, in some areas, the Fraternal Order of Police fits Homeland Security’s definition of “right wing extremist” groups, so Obama’s lack of appreciation for what these cops do and how they do it, along with his baseless accusations of racism, is hardly surprising.
Let’s just put it this way: When you have a vested interest in seeing ACORN metastacize, law enforcement officials doing their jobs by the book aren’t exactly welcome additions to the family of Hope and Change — and sometimes it shows.
The Fraternal Order of Police stupidly endorsed McCain/Palin, proving that the nation’s police force has a long way to go in the area of race relations
The United States is on the verge of passing the massive Cap & Trade boondoggle, and it’s a bad idea. But don’t just take my word for it. Let’s look at someplace where’s it’s already been implemented:
Proponents of the bill need to look no further than Spain, where the cap-and trade concept has sent unemployment to the 20 percent mark and with every one Ã¢â‚¬Å“green jobÃ¢â‚¬Â created, they have lost 2.2 jobs. Not exactly a success story.
The release also says that 9 out of 10 Ã¢â‚¬Å“green jobsÃ¢â‚¬Â created in Spain over the last decade are now gone. WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s more, Spain spent $753,778 to create each job, including subsidies of $1,319,783 per wind industry job.
That these numbers probably seem sustainable to U.S. government calculators is frightening indeed.
They call them “green jobs” because the government gets all your green, and your job is sleeping on a pile of discarded lettuce in a dumpster behind a Korean restaurant.
In other news… thanks to the Supreme Court, a probable future SCOTUS Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, has now been officially overturned more times than Michelle Obama’s garden soil. The good news for Sotomayor is that once she’s on the Supreme Court, she won’t be overturned by the Supreme Court anymore.
I’d have thought politicians have the most in common with bank robbers, but this makes sense too:
Using his law enforcement experience and data drawn from the FBI’s behavioral analysis unit, Jim Kouri has collected a series of personality traits common to a couple of professions.
Kouri, who’s a vice president of the National Assn. of Chiefs of Police, has assembled traits such as superficial charm, an exaggerated sense of self-worth, glibness, lying, lack of remorse and manipulation of others.
These traits, Kouri points out in his analysis, are common to psychopathic serial killers.
But — and here’s the part that may spark some controversy and defensive discussion — these traits are also common to American politicians. (Maybe you already suspected.)
Politicians even emulate the killing, in a sense — except that their victims are the economy and taxpayers — which they all-too-easily lure into their windowless vans for senseless, methodical slaughter by the bushel.
There are some seriously creepy similarities between serial killers and politicians. Take John Wayne Gacy and Nancy Pelosi for example:
