GUNFIRE AT U.S. CAPITOL!

m02373t5c0ejzuzgfxbz

HERE‘s an early report:

A woman who tried to ram the gate into the White House was shot dead Thursday after she led police on a chase through Washington and wounded at least one police officer.

“Shelter in place,” Capitol police officers responding to the crisis barked out.

The House, which had been in the midst of heated debates over how to end the government shutdown, immediately went into recess.

Members of Congress and their staffers scurried to their offices, closed the curtains, and locked themselves inside.

Meanwhile, a federal Parks police helicopter landed on the Mall directly in front of the building and quickly evacuated the wounded officer.

The name of the woman was not immediately known.

    …And the race is on to see who’s the first liberal to either blame this on the Republicans or say the woman is a Tea Party extremist; regardless of if they have the facts or not.

    And the race is on to see who’s the first conservative to either blame this on the Democrats or say the woman is a Marxist or Muslim extremist; regardless of if they have the facts or not.

  3. I have to admit, when I saw a picture of the woman who was shot and killed trying to ram her car through the barriers at the WH, I was surprised. A young Black woman? I remained open minded about who the perpetrator might be, but the thought that it would have been a Black person, let alone a young woman, just never entered my mind as a possibility. I wonder what her motive was?

    Well, sorry Craig, the award goes to liberal brain trust Sheila Jackson Lee, of “can we get the Mars Rover to take pictures of the Moon” fame, who in following the credo of Mayor Rahm (never let a good tragedy go to waste) tried to tie this into this current episode of “Those Mean Republicans” starring everyone’s favorite finger pointer, the Barrack Lobster (a nod to the B-52s).

    Now, before you or Pat or any of your other liberal brain trusts attempt to paint me as racist, let me just say that while all of the facts are not known, it appears this woman suffered from something that knows no race. As a man who experienced a spouse going through Post Partem Depression (though to a much lesser degree), this is a scary thing to witness, let alone go through. One thinks of Tom Cruise and his idiot rant about this on the Today show many years ago as an example of people’s ignorance to this. Unless something is brought to light in the coming days or weeks, this was something that has nothing to do with skin color, religious belief, political affiliation, or healthcare.

    My initial comment was made in light of the fact that usually after tragedies like this the media tends to lean towards blaming the conservative side of the political spectrum (ABC’s Brian Ross claiming the Aurora, Colorado shooter was a Tea Party member; someone who’s name escapes me at the moment saying they thought the Boston Marathon bomber was a disgruntled Tea Partier; the assorted remarks and claims made by not only the media but by Democrats in Congress after the Giffords shooting in Arizona).

    Mr. Nowhere, How do you figure the award goes to the “liberal brain trust…”? Just more hallucination on your part? The woman was suffering from depression and thought Obama was “stalking” her. It had nothing to do with liberalism. Or any political slant for that matter. Not even a “liberal brain trust”.

    BTW, you’d be surprised how many conservatives out here would think Obama was stalking them. You’d fit right in.

    Craig, first you should be mad at either the education system that supposedly taught you, or the person you have reading to you. I encourage you to have someone re-read my comments to you again, this time very slowly so that you may understand them.

    The liberal brain-trust I was referring to was Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee; a liberal who has shown her ignorance on many occasions. I at NO POINT attempted to make any political affiliation whatsoever of the woman driving the car. Now, unless you’d like to put forward the story the Sheila Jackson Lee was the woman driving the car yesterday, your comment to me is wrong and just goes to show your lack of reading comprehension abilities. As the main paragraph of my comment says, I placed no political, racial, or religious affiliation to the woman who drove the car, instead commenting how PPD is very real and can be very tragic.

    Now as to your last sentence, I could care less about conservatives thinking Obama’s stalking them (in fact that line hardly fits in the context of the post at hand). And I know Obama’s not stalking me for the following reasons:

    - I have no rap/pop/dance music out
    - I am not a Hollywood actor
    - I do not own lavish compounds in either Martha’s Vineyard or Hawaii
    - I do not own a golf course nor am I the member of any country club with the ability of getting friends in for a round or two.

    Come back again when you have something intelligent to say.

  7. Craig Knauss

    I did have something intelligent to say, unlike your first paragraph which is totally irrelevant to the D.C. incident. And yet, you felt compelled to make another nonsense comment. Sheila Jackson has absolutely nothing to do with this thread and doesn’t display any more ignorance than you do.

    Also, your comment “And I know Obama’s not stalking me for the following reasons:

    - I have no rap/pop/dance music out
    – I am not a Hollywood actor
    - I do not own lavish compounds in either Martha’s Vineyard or Hawaii
    – I do not own a golf course nor am I the member of any country club with the ability of getting friends in for a round or two.” represents stupidity in its purest form. Those are probably the most likely reasons Obama would stalk someone like you, according to the rightwing extremists.

    Furthermore, your inability to fully comprehend what I post is not my fault. Obviously you didn’t get much out of your education, what little there was, based on the above and your other posts. Maybe you should go back and finish third grade before you submit any more of your ignorant comments.
