‘I loaded every weapon I could in my house to be prepared in the event that they needed to be used,’ said Hale. ‘I called 911 and made the decision to either get in our panic room and be trapped or get in our car and head down the road.’

‘I grabbed my sweet daughter and got in the car… we saw the men had been running and were much closer to my house now. They took off their shirts and waived them at us as if to slow us down,’ Hale said of the suspects Donnie Rowe, 43, and Ricky Dubose, 24.

They will be brought to justice swiftly for their heinous crime against our officers,’ Georgia Department of Corrections Commissioner Greg Dozier said in a news release.Their escape began early Tuesday, when authorities said they somehow got through a door that should have been locked separating the guards from the inmates on the prison bus.

One of the murdered guards was Christopher Monica (pictured), who had been a prison guard since 2009. He had been working an extra shift to pay for his ill wifeSgt. Christopher Monica and Sgt. Curtis Billue were overpowered and shot dead with their own weapons. The fugitives then locked up 31 other inmates and jumped out with the guards’ 9mm Glock pistols, carjacking a driver who happened to pull up behind them.

Strange behavior by the murderers. 

Clearly, an armed citizen, who was ready to use deadly force, put a stop to this.

Here’s an example of when I’d support the death penalty. Clearly these “mad dogs” are too dangerous to be allowed to live.

Sadly.

Sigh!

Another “barbara streisand” malfunction?

So, as the article says, everyone who played the game got screwed.

Argh!

And, of course, the evidence has been “fixed”!

I don’t understand.

RANT: Giving away the USA to “immigrants” who don’t want to assimilate

Hi! This is a blog post I threw together in response to the recent increase in refugee numbers by Trump’s State Department, in order to convey what it is like living in an Islamizing area. I gave a talk at a luncheon a few months ago that was basically relating my story of how my hometown has been Islamized by refugee resettlement. So it makes sense to do a blog post.

I’m from the Utica, NY area. Utica is the city nicknamed by the UN “the city that loves refugees!” Soon every American city will be a city that loves refugees! Get ready! So I would like to tell you what it is like living in an area where the major city is about 25% (or more) refugee, mainly Muslim

I was born in Utica, a “faded industrial town” along the Mohawk River/Erie Canal corridor, and lived there until I was 8-years-old when my family moved to a nearby small college town. I loved living in Utica because there were lots of families on my block, big Catholic families with lots of kids. You could yard-hop, checking out who was available for play. You could bike around the neighborhood. There were block parties in the summer. My grandmother lived up the street. Life was good.

*** and ***

Want to know why my application was rejected several times even though we qualified? Want to know why it was so difficult to get food stamps? The Department of Social Services in my area is swamped because of the refugees. 25% of the city are refugees. Virtually all of the refugees are on welfare. And when they apply for welfare, they don’t do so as an independent entity, as I did. They go through their refugee resettlement agency who deals with the Department of Social Services for them. So basically Americans get the short shrift, and refugees get taken care of. And that’s America. This is why so many Democrats voted for Trump. Americans are getting squeezed out by non-Americans at multiple levels.

*** and ***

The nice lady who asked me to give a talk a couple months ago on my hometown asked me if there were any refugees who were an “asset to the community”. I replied that they do not consider themselves part of your community, so if they are going to be an asset to any community, it is not going to be yours.

*** end quote ***

This is so frustrating.

“We, The Sheeple” don’t seem to understand that the USA is broke beyond understanding.

We can’t afford the welfare / warfare state. And, immigrants on welfare only makes the situation much worse. 

Sad to say, but welfare has to end for EVERYBODY. And, we have to bring the girls and boy home.

Look at Switzerland as the exemplar of a peaceful nation secure in its borders and in its civil society.

Argh!

POLITICAL: Menendez has a short memory

As I send this note to you, 13 Republican men are meeting behind closed doors, secretly writing a healthcare bill – a bill that will impact every American and one-sixth of our nation’s economy.   I haven’t seen their plan and I know you haven’t either.  Because there hasn’t been a single public meeting or hearing to discuss it.   

*** end quote ***

And, Senator Menendez, how is this different than Obamacare? 

“Have to pass it to see what’s in it?”

Also, how are your legal troubles going? No updates on that from you!

Argh!

CLOUD: Another free sharing site bites the dust

Microsoft to shut down its Docs.com file-sharing site December 15
Microsoft is shutting down its Docs.com site in December and advising affected users to go with LinkedIn’s SlideShare and/or OneDrive for their file storage needs instead.
By Mary Jo Foley for All About Microsoft | June 9, 2017 — 11:40 GMT (04:40 PDT) | Topic: Cloud

 *** begin quote ***

Officials posted a notice of the planned end of service on June 9 on its Docs.com site. In that note, Microsoft attributed overlap between SlideShare, which is part of LinkedIn, and OneDrive with Docs.com as the reasons for the December 2017 closing. Microsoft bought LinkedIn last year.

Microsoft is advising users to migrate and/or delete content they shared on Docs.com as soon as possible.

*** end quote ***

Clearly, you can NOT depend on anything that is free.

It either goes PAY or goes away.

That, imho, reenforces Google Drive, Dropbox, and iCloud as reliable services.
