Two Shot at Expo Idaho gun show after rifle discharges
For the second time in three years, an accidental gun discharge has injured someone at a gun show at Expo Idaho in Garden City.

A generation comes of age with conservative Democrats like Hillary Clinton

How did it work out? Let's take a look...

Jobs
They told us jobs to Mexico would free corporations from the burden of manufacturing so that the extra profits would be pumped back into job growth in new high tech industries that would raise salaries and put millions to work! And for Mexico, China and India, it did exactly that. We got fucked, slave labor got fucked.

Economy
They told us that removing burdensome Wall Street regulations would allow banks to engineer creative financial products for the benefit of mankind. Instead, Wall Street scientists created frankenfuck. We got monster fucked. And as Wall Street continues to pound away at our most sensitive parts, Hillary says they have to. Or the terrorists win.

Poverty
Welfare cuts plus zero tolerance, tough on crime bills and for-profit prisons were going to send a strong message to the welfare dependents. It put millions of poor people in prison, ruined lives of their families and crippled communities. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. To get fucked by the police.

War
War and violence in Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Libya, would soften the "terrorists" and till soil for the seeds of Democracy. Everyone got fucked. 100,000 dead, trillions in debt, millions displaced. Drones terrorizing and marginalizing millions of innocent people. A cluster bomb of cluster fucks.

Education
Chief Executive Fucker, Bill Gates, announced everyone MUST have a college degree or they are worth no more than cesspool waste. Answering the call to action, America's colleges and universities got straight to work charging kids a hundred thousand dollars for a degree. Along with 10% student loans (in a time of 0% interest rates) and sending entry level jobs to Asia, Mexico, et al we have ourselves genuine, predatory fucking.

Health Care
A free market solution that prohibits negotiation for prices! $3000 deductibles, and huge jumps in drug costs, medical costs and insurance premiums fucked us all. Yes, I know many people have been helped. However, many more have been completely, royally, totally fucked. Here's an aspirin, only $49.99. Because even a hospital will fuck you, cash only style.

You do not learn leadership by incessantly representing the rich and powerful over the non-rich and defenseless.

Hillary got rich defending and promoting this shit.

Do you really think she is going to evolve away from it once she's in office?

Bragging about Hillary and her bombing credentials? That is seriously fucked up.

Do you understand the holy hell created by her ideology of unilateral intervention and excessive force?

The ideology is called Neoconservative. It's an ideology Hillary shares with Wolfowitz, Kristal, Cheney, Rice, et al.

It's a principal reason we are where we are at this point.

And you are bragging about this shit?

Why?

Because it worked so well last time?

French jets bomb Syria in the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa

Source: CNN

(CNN) French fighter jets bombed a series of ISIS sites in Raqqa, Syria, on Sunday in what officials described as a major bombardment.

The targets included a command center, a recruitment center, an ammunition storage base and a training camp for the terror group, said Mickael Soria, press adviser for France's defense minister.

ISIS claims Raqqa as the capital of its so-called caliphate. The airstrikes come two days after a series of terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which France's President described as "an act of war."

Twelve aircraft, including 10 fighter jets, were involved in Sunday's airstrikes, Soria said.

Twenty bombs were dropped, he said, and all of the targets were destroyed.

Shot Dead Over Texting
MIAMI — An argument over texting at the movies ended in a cellphone user’s death on Monday afternoon when a retired police officer in the audience shot him at a theater near Tampa, Fla., the authorities said.

Two couples were among patrons at a matinee of “Lone Survivor” at the Grove 16 movie theater in Wesley Chapel, about 20 miles northeast of Tampa, when one of the men, a retired Tampa police officer, got angry because the man in front of him was using his phone during the previews, despite being asked to stop several times, said Douglas Tobin, a Pasco County sheriff’s office spokesman.

Man in Theater Shoots Self in Ass
A 56-year-old man whom police say has a valid permit to carry a concealed weapon accidentally shot himself in the buttocks inside the Century 14 movie theaters in downtown Sparks on Tuesday night.

He later was found seeking medical treatment at a Reno hospital. Time for metal detectors?

Open-Carry Militia Mom ‘Murders’ Family
Along with Dunnachie’s civic mindedness—she was a Republican election judge—and her penchant for right-wing and fringe causes, including the open carry of firearms, both husband and wife were members of the 3%ers Texas, according to former members of the group and posts on social media. The group is part of a greater modern militia movement named for what adherents claim is the share of colonists who fought during the American Revolutionary War.

These are just a few. When it comes to gun nut stupidity, there are thousands of examples.

Hillary is WRONG! Who gives a shit if Donald Trump's kids go to college free?

Leveling the playing field would end grade inflation and discrimination. It would keep Trump, Bush and Clinton from buying degrees and having outsized influence over the curriculum of colleges and universities.

Equal access to education is exactly the right thing.

Trump and Clinton and the rich people they represent will ALWAYS be able to afford college, or health care, or an abortion.

That's the problem!

Any proposal that helps the middle class and below, Hillary is there to make sure the best interests of the Wall Street rich are represented.

Jesus, Hillary. We get enough of your bullshit false morality from Republicans.

Because lots of people with assault weapons in a dark theater shooting at each other...

is clearly the only way to prevent mass murder from suicidal maniacs.

We have the ugliest unbounded American gun-nut stupidity on display in the aftermath of every horrible gun event.

There isn't a problem in the world that can't be solved with more guns and more violence.

Heading out for the evening? Here's what the well-dressed NRA asshole is wearing to the theater:

Assault weapon? Check.
Laser scope? Check.
Extra rounds? Check.
Bulletproof vest? Check.
Sidearm? Check.
Night vision goggles? Check.
Secure comms? Check.
Medical kit? Check.

The hell she will create as President...

If we know anything, we all know the hell waiting for American families with President Hillary.

Past performance IS a reliable indicator of future performance.

From the massive disaster known as the Iraq War, to a violent State Dept. tenure that turned Libya, Syria and Yemen into hell holes of violent extremism. Millions of lives were shattered and the consequences will be carried for generations. In spite of the chaos caused by her interventionist ideology, Hillary remains an unapologetic neo-conservative.

From lobbying for Wall Street banks to intervening as a government official on behalf of big Wall Street contributors to her personal foundation. As a corporate Democrat, Hillary has been in the middle of it all.

American workers will have ZERO representation with Hillary Clinton. Clearly toxic trade deals sending millions of jobs to slave labor in Mexico and Asia are called the "gold standard" and "good for New York and America".

Then, there are the idiotic statements about welfare dependency and tough on crime sabre rattling and more equally idiotic statements about email security, gay marriage, sniper fire and being dead broke leaving the White House.

War, inequality, injustice, and bad judgement... there's a common theme.

It hits us right at home.

It hits our paychecks, our health care and education costs. Her corporate philosophies coupled with Wall Street money are working hard to destroy the quality of life in America for working families.

The tortured explanations defending her actions aren't just cringe worthy, they are vomit worthy.

Evolved? Easy for her to say. The damage is done. Families hurt. Money lost.

I'd rather vote for someone who gets it right the first time.

Hillary wants everything. We owe her nothing.

"Pulling Myself Up By My Own Bootstraps", Heartwarming Biography of an Outsider Candidate

Forthcoming bio, excerpts just released.

From the Chapter on Growing Up and Leaving Home
After personally intervening to defuse the riots triggered by Martin Luther King's assassination, I turned down a West Point scholarship offered to me by this guy I met. While I might have deferred my entitled future as a military hero, I wasn't about to stay home and bake cookies. I was, after all, the plucky child of hardworking American immigrants and my mother named me after one of the most famous mountain climbers in the world. Even though I was dead broke when I left home, I overcame my struggles and climbed my way to the top.


From the Chapter on Diplomacy
I made a decision to live up to the inspirational figures and namesakes bestowed upon me. Surviving childhood in a war torn, violent community gifted me an ability to manipulate events with surgeon-like skills. Whether negotiating the Northern Ireland peace process, dodging sniper fire in Bosnia to end the Balkan war or spreading American-style democracy to Libya, Syria and Yemen, I was able draw upon the strength and experience of my own imagination as a brilliant diplomat. For example, if you want peace in the Middle east, you have two options, bomb Palestinians until they give up or slip them into Egypt, overnight, when no one is looking.


From the Chapter on Survival
Goldman Sachs, Ctitgroup, PhARMA had me under siege. Their daily onslaught of cash bombs shook the very core of my foundation. I used wheelbarrows, dump trucks, pyramids and anything I could get my hands on to protect my family. As the chaos of wealth and privilege exploded all around me, I held quiet vigil in off-shore tax shelters. It is a blessed miracle that I survived. But I learned a valuable lesson about money. Welfare is like slavery. Too many of those on welfare had known nothing but dependency all their lives. It was time for reform.


From the Chapter on Technology
Having two devices for email is inconvenient which is why I keep a US Government email server in my basement. I don’t know, I don’t throw anything away. I’m like two steps short of a hoarder. So I have an iPad, a mini iPad, an iPhone and a Blackberry. Actually, email is a bit confusing to me which is why I like sending jobs to China and India. All that boring technical stuff needs to go to Asia so we can free up our time for more important things like deregulating Wall Street banks.
