What a coincidence that this poor girl was murdered and another girl, who was in the Obama inaugural parade, was murdered in Chicago several weeks after the inauguration. I believe that the Obama administration is evil enough to kill innocents to push their gun agenda, the same way they used Sandy Hook to try to forward it.
It's sad. But why would her sister be thinking about her older sister being shot while listening to Obama? Not so sure about the bright futures of young, unwed mothers in a city like Chicago.
Rahm Emanuel needs to 'step up to the plate' and get rid of his armed security guards.
Lead by example Rham!
.."Family members describe a young woman with a bright future and big dreams abruptly cut short."
Janay dropped out of school, had an illegitimate child, was with a friend in an alley who was the target of the shooting. What bright future??
It's sorrowful and the family seemed nice, but guns aren't the problem.
...as in Toronto a spike in teenage murders being commited by the scum of our community using ILLEGAL HAND GUNS , it is time to implement LEGAL CONCEALED GUN PERMITS to all the legal citizens of Canada and it is time to re institute a MANDATORY 4year CONSCRIPTION into any one of the branches of the Canadian Armed Forces ." (period)
It is sad that a young girl has lost her life.
It is despicable that the usual suspects, from the POS down, are using this and other deaths, perpetrated by criminals (after all, using a gun in Chicago is a criminal offense, no?) to make criminals of all law abiding citizens, through their 'gun control' laws.
By now it must be obvious even to some LIVs that their aim is not to reduce gun deaths - else they'd go after those criminals with the full force of the law.
They do not. They want a disarmed people, that's why they don't use the existing laws.
NObama won't care. The victim is black the killer is black. He only feigns concern when he can somehow exploit the death to advance his own agenda. Since he can't exploit this, he doesn't give a rats Heiney about it.
Wolfie's back! Yay. In the infamous words of Tom Hanks to Mr. Jingles in The Green Mile, "Where you bin', boy?"
He and I were in contact (very briefly) by email. Orangeone and Ducky knew about my issue too. :-) I told them incase anyone asked where the heck I disappeared to so you wouldn't think I'd lost faith in the cause and just gave up and ran away or something libtardish like that! ;-)
I was about to send out the Marines (MiketheMarine) to find him. I believe they are in the same liberal area (well, close anyway - Ma, Md, both too far NorthEast for me).
Hard drive crashed. 3 weeks to the day, I'm back. My wife helped me (actually did all the work) and was able to clone my old hard drive before it totally died. So the transition was much easier than it's been in previous years. She cloned the old drive, swapped them out and I was able to boot up and all my programs, settings, personalization and data were exactly as they had been before. Yea! :-) I missed being here. I could read but could not post on my Nook, but now, for better or for worse, I'm back again! It feels great to be back among my friends again too!! :-)
'I was like this when I was 20... It's just me... not age... this year 50 I think...' - Wolfie
Just remember (if you can), that also works to your advantage. Think of all the books and movies you can see over and over and over again as if they were brand new. ;-)
Start with the large print and easy puzzles. It sounds degrading, but you quickly work up. The brain is a muscle that must be exercized. Too many people 'exorcize' them instead.
A quick story. Three years ago, my Mom (who was 80 at the time) had a mini stroke and found out that one of her carotid arteries was 90% blocked while the other one was 50% blocked. They performed some surgery, putting in stents and cleaning them out, which saved her life.
Her memory wasn't so good after that and her handwriting looked like a 3 year-old. I got her on crossword puzzles, starting with the large print, easy to do. It took her a long time for each and the letters were hardly distinguishable. Three years later, at 83, she zips through the hard ones and her handwriting is better than mine.
You know you're there when you can do the New York Times double page crossword (the only thing worthwhile in the NYT, it turns out).
I was just fooling with you, tinlizzie. For all that, allow me to dissect your comment a bit.
"She started out life with no future, she, her mommy and her 5 siblings were on their way to the Pound."
You don't see the similarity?
She started out life with no future, she, her mommy and her 5 siblings were on their way to the Pound. :-( Now they all have comfotrable homes. :-)
I've got a lot of compassion for animals. Humans, not so much.
My wife is constantly losing her cellphone somewhere in the house, but she can remember something I said three years ago, like it was yesterday.
Drink wild blueberry juice. :)
The kitten is named, "BO," and she's black and white. Do we know anything more about her, or have her records been sealed? :)
I have a .32 cal revolver I take to work. The 'hand cannon' is just too big in a pinch.
The name of the game is to put a slug IN an armed robber, not blow holes clear through the building and possibly innocent customers. ;-)
'Pauly', she came with the name. We have 2 cats, the kitten is named "BO", she's black and white, the Mrs. wouldn't let me get away with naming her 'Barack' or 'Barry'.
Tried them. I can't do them. I've been on entire vacations in the last 10 years that I can barely remember ever going on. :-( If it was not for the many photos I'd wonder if I went at all.
Start doing a crossword puzzle a day. That will help tremendously (really). Might want to throw in a Sudoku for good luck, as well. :)
You got one of those too huh. Mine can find her way around the world by memory but it takes her 20 minutes to remember where she put her car keys last. I'm just the opposite, I know where everything is (as long as I don't have to leave the house), that's why we are such a great pair. :-)
I'm so jealous! My memory is spotty at best. :-( My wife's memory is great... She remembers everything... Thought there are things I wish she could forget... ;-)
Very good. :-) I guess I couldn't have e-mailed you. I've been a little distracted. I've got a female cat that's been in heat for a week. It's almost been like having a WW2 British hooker sitting in the window screaming "Have a go Yank, have a go?", all damn night.
Well, she's done now and she's on the way to the Vet. If I can be 'spayed' (vasectomy), so can she. ;-)
No, the "old timers" just hasn't set in yet. Unfortunately, there are many things I would wish to forget, but am unable to. Oh, well.
I'm a big movie buff and the lines always stick with me. They just seemed appropriate at the time. :)
Well, once again, in the immortal words of Bruce Willis in Armageddon, "I got just five words for you: D@mn glad to see you boy!"
PRAVDA & GUN RIGHTS
The English version of Pravda (yeah it’s still around) thought it necessary to remind us of the historical fact that in 1917 the first move the Red Army made was to take away all privately held guns. This well armed population was what allowed the various White factions to rise up, no matter how disorganized politically and militarily they were in 1918 and wage a savage civil war against the Reds. It should be noted that many of these armies were armed peasants, villagers, farmers and merchants, protecting their own. If it had not been for Washington's clandestine support of and for the Reds, history would have gone quite differently. . Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases. As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike. They throw acid (Pakistan, UK), they throw fire bombs (France), they attack. What is worse, is, that the best way to stop a maniac is not psychology or jail or "talking to them", it is a bullet in the head, that is why they are a maniac, because they are incapable of living in reality or stopping themselves.
Seems somehow oddly appropriate that our President is the product of Chicago politics.
I think you're right. He's using Chicago as a model.
Why did "O" chose to go to Chicago, the most corrupt political city in our country, and start his political career?
Is it because he finds corruption to his liking, a tool to get ones way? Why is it he always uses Chicago political style arguments?
He chose to root himself in Chicago because he believes in a system of corruption, look at how he governs! He certainly openly despises our laws, he threatens to go around our laws constantly.
Does this sound like someone that believes in the foundation of our Country, a Country of men governed by laws?
Bingo, we have a winner!
He also believes everyone thinks as he does, he lacks an intellect that allows him to think independent of how his mind has been programmed. In this case he is a product of his up bringing, a very flawed and destructive programming.
He has never sought, at least as far as we know from the little information we have about him, to experience anything other then what his belief system is based.
He is the poster child of prejudice.
1) preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience : English prejudice against foreigners | anti-Jewish prejudices. See note at bias .
• dislike, hostility, or unjust behavior formed on such a basis : accusations of racial prejudice.
2) chiefly Law harm or injury that results or may result from some action or judgment :
Me thinks he chose Chicago because it resembled his beliefs, power and corruption, no accountability, scream racism at every turn to get your way.
