Multiple shooters at Canada's Parliament, and perhaps more shooters across Ottawa, at Rideau Centre and National War Memorial? WHAT?

The casualties of the NFL domestic abuse problem: The truthful messenger?

Sport, Tue Sep 30.

The National Football League has a problem.  The problem has been going on for a long long time, but now it has blown up big.  
Starting with the February assault of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice of his fiancee Janay in an elevator of an Atlantic City casino, things quickly spiraled out of control.

Victim of the PC Police

Posted to Legal on Fri Sep 26, 2014 at 08:44:47 AM EST (promoted from Diaries by port1080). RSS.

South Carolina state trooper, Sean Groubert, has been fired and arrested for shooting an unarmed black man, Levar Edward Jones. After the incidents in Ferguson, Mo and Beavercreek, OH, police officers have been forced to expect more scrutiny when shooting unarmed black men, which is just such a drag created by the busybody PC liberals. There was once a time when an unarmed black male could be shot without having to worry about people asking so many questions like "was he a threat?" or "did you really have to shoot him for crossing the street?" Police everywhere are being victimized.

Seeking attention and making up crime, is that what ex-Navy Seals are all about?

BATH TWP., Ohio - Bath Township detectives believe they have "overwhelming evidence" to prove a former Navy SEAL lied when he claimed he was shot during an altercation with three black men outside of a popular shopping center.

Chris Heben, 44, of Medina, has been charged with misdemeanor counts of falsification and obstructing official business.

Warmongers and Chickenhawks shitting themselves over ISIS

but Israel is like calm down bitches:

At the end of the day, we are talking about several thousand unrestrained terrorists riding pickup trucks and firing with Kalashnikovs and machine guns.

...

The moment it encounters a modern army, ISIS will get off its pickup trucks...

In the meantime, ISIS is preoccupied with countless other enemies, some of which are separating between them and us: The armies of Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon, and even its sworn Shiite enemy, Hezbollah.

...

In fact, ISIS has led to an almost unbelievable broad coalition against it, all of whom seek to destroy it. Here is a short, clockwise list: Russia, Turkey, Iran, the Kurdish militias (Pêşmerge), the Gulf states, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the Syrian army, the Lebanese army, Hezbollah and Israel.

You know who else likes to ride in pickup trucks with guns?

Airmen denied because he won't say "So help me God"

No, of course we're not a Christian military.

A member of the Creech Air Force Base in Indian Springs, Nevada, was allegedly barred from reenlisting in the Air Force after omitting the phrase "so help me God" from his contract...

U.S. Air Force Public Affairs Officer Chris Hoyler told The Huffington Post in a statement that "reciting 'So help me God' in the reenlistment and commissioning oaths is a statutory requirement." He said an October 2013 amendment to Air Force Instruction "no longer authorized [airmen] to omit the words 'So help me God.'" Hoyler did not respond to a request to confirm whether the service member was denied reenlistment, and if so, whether it was due to the omission of the "So help me God" clause.

There will be some political crowing for opponents of the Affordable Health Care Act can rally on the news that HealthCare.Gov has been hacked earlier this Summer, like that of Senator Orrin Hatch reminding the the public that they ignored Republican warnings not to use products before they have undergone independent testing.  Meanwhile, the citizenry is to rest assured that consumer information was not breached, there was "just a bug" that was planted, a kind of "common place" sort of bug that "common" hackers use.  Nothing to worry about.

Arkansas Premiums Fall

indecentspeech.

Posted to Politics on Fri Aug 29, 2014 at 07:38:47 AM EST (promoted from Diaries by port1080). RSS.

Health insurance premiums in Arkansas are projected to fall by 2% in 2015.

Today, the governor's office issued a press release stating that "the Arkansas Insurance Department is projecting that insurance policies sold through the Arkansas Health Insurance Marketplace will see a net decrease of two percent in premium costs for 2015."

Health insurance premiums for consumers buying coverage on their own was growing 10 percent or more per year before Obamacare. It's become almost axiomatic in health care that insurance premiums will go up every year, so a potential decline is huge news.

Never Go Full Retard...err Full Auto

39-year-old fire-arms instructor Charles Vacca is the latest recipient of the Darwin Award. Mr. Vacca was showing a 9-year-old girl how to shoot an Uzi in Full Auto, when the girl lost control of the gun and she ended up shooting Mr. Vacca in the head.

He said the girl safely and successfully fired the 9 mm weapon several times when it was set in the "single-shot" mode.

He said the weapon was put into the "fully-automatic" mode before the girl fired again with the instructor standing off to her left. The weapon recoiled and drifted left as the girl squeezed off an undetermined number of rounds as she maintained possession but lost control of the Uzi as it raised up above her head.

"The guy just dropped," McCabe said of shooting instructor Charles Vacca, 39, of Lake Havasu City, who suffered at least one gunshot to the head.

Here's a video of what happened literally half-a-second before Mr. Vacca was shot.

The video should be submitted to America's Funniest Bloopers.
