(..actually, I've often wondered.)
Shooting took place in March. Middlefield, OH. Female MOS lost left index finger (had a month on that Dept). Male MOS slight injuries to thigh (back on the job). Perp fired 37 rounds from AK. DOA. Guy pulled over for running Stop sign. Had another 8 mags for AK with 40 rounds each, books, DVD's on improvised explosives, etc. No criminal record.(Thanks, Rick.)
Well my rig's a little old,
But that don't mean she's slow.
There's a flame from her stack,
And the smoke's rolling black as coal.
My hometown's coming in sight,
If you think I'm happy your right.
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight.

Dear "Hughniverse Team":Maybe Huge-wit could liven up his show by having a Barbed wire steel cage match slap fest with Pat Caddell.
..HahahahaHahahahaHahahahaHahahahaHahahahaHahahaha.. ..HahahahaHahahahaHahahahaHahahahaHahahahaHahahaha.. ..HahahahaHahahahaHahahahaHahahahaHahahahaHahahaha..
..relationship? RELATIONSHIP? It was the same as a relationship between a hooker and a client. I paid you money and I got..
Tell you what:
(0) Stop with the absolutely OPPRESSIVE commercial load on the show (and on your station in general). More spots than on Lady Macbeth's hands. It's like a litter of Dalmatians.
(1) Stop with all the All-Catholic/all-Religion All The Time. Even as a Christian, I find this off-putting and boring. So there's a new pontiff? When he quits/croaks there will be YET ANOTHER new pontiff. What's the big deal? It's been working like that for over 2,003 years.
(2) Stop patronizing people. Stop soliciting for drone GOP campaign funds when the GOP raised two billion and blew it out it's ass in attempting to un-elect the WORST POTUS in history and an egregious, grasping, commie congress.
(3) Tell John Campbell that his job is AS AN ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE OF CONGRESS and NOT a talk show host. He needs to work for his constituents NOT Hugh Hewitt.
(4) Stop with the tedious, lame, and un-hip OSU/Cleveland pro teams sports stuff. Who cares? That's Ohio and the Midwest, fer crissakes.
(5) Stop with the beyond-tedious USC bashing. (This from a 1968 UCLA grad).
(6) MOST IMPORTANT: stop with the gratuitous Generalissimo bashing. That guy is the best thing that show's got.
..better yet: fire Hewitt and hire Duane. He is 1,000% sharper when it comes to politics, 2,000% funnier, and 3,000% more listenable. See if you can get Duamne and Ed Morrissey to do the show.
In the mean time, if you want me, I'll be over at 790 KHz listening to your competition.

Well, Mike, I donated and walked and phone-banked all last year for Romney here in California. The more than $1,000 I contributed to this effort was very precious to me since I make less than $100,000 per year ~~ and I am not about to do it again on a whim. You all had your chance to oust one of the WORST presidents in history along with members of the most egregiously leftist and grasping congress ever. You all collectively received over TWO BILLION to do this and you failed. So, I am sure you will understand why I am not about to invest any more of my money and time until I see a worthwhile effort.
Why don't you guys take back the Senate, for example, and maybe then I'll consider cutting loose with some Benjamins.
Love and kisses,

We are currently gearing up for the largest voter outreach program the Republican party has ever seen, and we need your help.
This summer we will begin this process of putting hundreds of boots on the ground in communities across this nation. No one individual, demographic, or state will be overlooked, or taken for granted.
This expansive program is going to change the way we do business, reshaping and rebuilding our party from the ground up.
These plans are going to cost money, but we truly believe that this is going to change the face of our party, and in time our nation.
That is why we need your help TODAY!
The work we do this year is critical for laying the foundation for many years and elections to come. We can't afford to wait.
Contribute today and help us spread our party's message of prosperity to every single American.

SOCIAL SECURITY NOW CALLED "FEDERAL BENEFIT PAYMENT"/ENTITLEMENT!For those of you who just about to queue up at your friendly S. S. administration office, and who still find it necessary to work despite receiving this pathetic return of your contributions, be advised that:
Have you noticed, your Social Security check is now referred to as a "Federal Benefit Payment"?
I'll be part of the one percent to forward this.
The government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a Federal Benefit Payment.
This isnt a benefit its earned income! Not only did we all contribute to Social Security but our employers did too.
It totaled 15% of our income before taxes. If you averaged $30K per year over your working life, that's close to $180,000 invested in Social Security. If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security ($375/month, including both your and your employers contributions) at a meager 1% interest rate compounded monthly, after 40 years of working you 'd have more than $1.3+ million dollars saved! This is your personal investment.
Upon retirement, if you took out only 3% per year, you'd receive $39,318 per year, or $3,277 per month.
That's almost three times more than today's average Social Security benefit of $1,230 per month, according to the Social Security Administration (Google it - its a fact).
And your retirement fund would last more than 33 years (until you're 98 if you retire at age 65)!
I can only imagine how much better most average-income people could live in retirement if our government had just invested our money in low-risk interest-earning accounts.
Instead, the folks in Washington pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madoff ever did. They took our money and used it elsewhere. They forgot that it was OUR money they were taking. They didnt have a referendum to ask us if we wanted to lend the money to them. And they didn't pay interest on the debt they assumed. And recently, they've told us that the money wont support us for very much longer.
But is it our fault they misused our investments?
And now, to add insult to injury, they're calling it a benefit, as if we never worked to earn every penny of it. Just because they borrowed the money, doesn't mean that our investments were a charity!
Lets take a stand.
We have earned our right to Social Security and Medicare. Demand that our legislators bring some sense into our government Find a way to keep Social Security and Medicare going, for the sake of that 92% of our population who need it.
Then call it what it is:
Our Earned Retirement Income.
As I get a bit older and have a bit more time, I occasionally create opportunities to keep my deductive reasoning skills sharp.
After shoveling snow , I sat down and had a couple of Rum and Cokes.
The day was gorgeous, and the drinks facilitated some deep thinking on various topics...
I thought about an age old question: "Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts? "
Most women maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts, but still I wondered.
Well, after another Rum and Coke, and some heavy thinking, I've come up with the answer...
Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby! Here's the reasoning:
A year or so after giving birth, women often decide, "It might be time to have another baby."
On the other hand, you'll never hear a guy say, "You know, I think I'm ready for another kick in the nuts."
I rest my case . . . still sharp as a tack.
Brilliant way to put it. But because of the common sense aspect of it, no one in Washington will pay attention.
A person steals guns, (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), shoots and kills his own mother (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), transports these guns loaded (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), brings guns onto school property (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), breaks into the school (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), discharges the weapons within city limits (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), murders 26 people (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), and commits suicide (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW).
And there are people in this country that somehow think passing ANOTHER LAW Banning guns would protect us from someone like this. If you haven't noticed, people like this are not concerned about breaking laws - they only care about fulfilling their own twisted agenda.
The only people that a gun ban law would impact are the LAW ABIDING CITIZENS, which will only serve to cripple the ability to protect ourselves.

This asshole looked at my beer belly last night and sarcastically said, "Is that Corona or Bud?"
I said, "There's a tap underneath; taste it and find out."
I was talking to a girl in the bar last night. She said, "If you lost a few pounds, had a shave and got your hair cut, you'd look all right."
I told her, "If I did that, I'd be talking to your friends over there instead of you."
I was telling a girl in the pub about my ability to guess what day a woman was born just by feeling her boobs.
"Really" she said, "Go on then...try."
After about thirty seconds of fondling she began to lose patience and said.
"Come on, what day was I born"?
I said, “Yesterday."
I got caught taking a pee in the local swimming pool today.
The lifeguard shouted at me so loud, I nearly fell in.
I went to the pub last night and saw a fat chick dancing on a table.
I said, "Nice legs."
The girl giggled and said with a smile, "Do you really think so."
I said "Definitely! Most tables would have collapsed by now. "

AUSTRALIA: MORE VIOLENT CRIME DESPITE GUN BAN
April 13, 2009
It is a common fantasy that gun bans make society safer. In 2002 -- five years after enacting its gun ban -- the Australian Bureau of Criminology acknowledged there is no correlation between gun control and the use of firearms in violent crime. In fact, the percent of murders committed with a firearm was the highest it had ever been in 2006 (16.3 percent), says the D.C. Examiner.
Even Australia's Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research acknowledges that the gun ban had no significant impact on the amount of gun-involved crime..
Moreover, Australia and the United States -- where no gun-ban exists -- both experienced similar decreases in murder rates:
Between 1995 and 2007, Australia saw a 31.9 percent decrease; without a gun ban, America's rate dropped 31.7 percent.
During the same time period, all other violent crime indices increased in Australia: assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2 percent.
Sexual assault -- Australia's equivalent term for rape -- increased 29.9 percent.
Overall, Australia's violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent.
At the same time, U.S. violent crime decreased 31.8 percent: rape dropped 19.2 percent; robbery decreased 33.2 percent; aggravated assault dropped 32.2 percent.
Australian women are now raped over three times as often as American women.
While this doesn't prove that more guns would impact crime rates, it does prove that gun control is a flawed policy. Furthermore, this highlights the most important point: gun banners promote failed policy regardless of the consequences to the people who must live with them, says the Examiner.
