How U.S. Debt Per Capita Has Changed Under Every President Since JFK

Worst under Reagan and Bush by per capita. Unfortunately for Obama who did not increase spending hardly at all, it looks like he was a big spender but he just inherited a huge recession.

Even Forbes Magazine contributor asking for Kevin O'Leary to be yanked off of ABC and the CBC

Snip> It is appalling that O’Leary has so much airtime in Canada on CBC’s The Lang and O’Leary Exchange and in the United States on ABC’s Shark Tank. The reality is that the billions of people living on less than $2.50 a day often lack access to clean water, basic education and food. This is a moment for CBC and ABC to show some responsible leadership, and yank O’Leary off the air. His comments are as offensive as Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson’s anti-gay remarks, which prompted A&E to immediately suspend the show (though a backlash by fans forced the network to reverse its decision and reinstate him). Since the show returned to TV, millions of viewers have changed the channel, resulting in a hit to the network’s advertising revenue.

Fellow shot at theater was texting his 3 year old daughter


The argument was over Chad texting his daughter, deputies said.

Reeves, 71, a retired Tampa Police officer, was also accompanied by his wife.

Sheriff Chris Nocco told ABC Action News that Reeves left the theater in an effort to find an usher that could tell Chad to turn off his phone. Nocco added that when Reeves returned, the men exchanged words, popcorn went flying, and that is when Reeves pulled out a .380 pistol and opened fire.

"For a retired or off duty officer, who has that training and all that, it should have never escalated to that point," said Chad's friend Joseph Trapani.

"Chad doesn't carry weapons, doesn't hold weapons," he said.

According to witnesses, when Reeves pulled out the gun, Chad's wife lunged to protect him. She reportedly put her hand over his chest but the bullet ended up going through her hand.

Chad, according to witness Alex Cummings, took a few steps and blurted out, "I can't believe I've been shot."

Chad fell down and died seconds later.

"She's a wreck. I mean she just lost her husband, the father of her little girl over something that should have never happened," Trapani added.

It's Jabba Flat Butt from the planet Awkward!

I think the toilet paper in the background is a nice touch.
