Road-raging driver shoots himself in the leg while waving rifle and handgun at Florida family

man accidentally shot himself in the leg while waving two guns at a woman and her children during a Florida road rage incident.

Melissa Drake said a man driving a silver Mercedes in Fort Myers had been weaving in and out of lanes before attempting to pull into her lane, between the front of her car and another one about two feet ahead, reported WBBH-TV.

Her 17-year-old son said the man pointed the handgun at him as his mother passed his car.

Drake called 911 and reported the incident, along with the man’s license plate, and she said the man continued driving erratically — even putting his vehicle into reverse at one point.

Then she said he brandished a military-style rifle with a scope attached

and THEN.......he shot himself in teh leg...


Doesn't get much plainer than this, to me.

And now, for something completely different: How Europe is reacting to recent threats.

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved."
Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross."
The English have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out.
Terrorists have been re-categorised from "Tiresome" to "A Bloody Nuisance."
The last time the British issued a Bloody Nuisance" warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

The Scots have raised their threat level from "Pissed Off" to "Let's get the Bastards." They don't have any other levels.
This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide."
The only two higher levels in France are Collaborate" and "Surrender." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France 'S white flag factory, effectively paralysing the country's military capability.

Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to Elaborate Military Posturing."
Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides."

The Germans have increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs."
They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbour" and "Lose."

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels .
The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy.
These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from "No worries" to She'll be right, Mate."
Two more escalation levels remain: "Crikey! I think we'll need to cancel the Barbie this weekend!" and "The Barbie is cancelled.
So far no situation has ever warranted use of the last final escalation level.

And as a final thought - Greece is collapsing, the Iranians are getting > aggressive, and Rome is in disarray. Welcome back to 430 BC.

Where did ISIS come from? How was it able to gain land, arms and money so quickly? See this:

Unmasking ISIS

Part 1 shows that the U.S. – through bad policies and stupid choices – is largely responsible for the rise of ISIS.

Part 2 reveals the strange history of the leaders of ISIS … Including one who never really existed, and another who – if you read mainstream media drivel –
was killed … then arrested … and then killed again.

Part 3 delves into the little-known, secret history of Iraq and Syria … and discusses the real motivations behind our current policies towards those countries.

And Part 4 reveals the shocking truth about who is really supporting ISIS.


This is a lengthy post, , and has lots of citations and maps and etc. Very much worth the read.

"trumpery"...its a real word and it means............

noun: trumpery; plural noun: trumperies

attractive articles of little value or use.
practices or beliefs that are superficially or visually appealing but have little real value or worth.

adjective: trumpery

showy but worthless.
"trumpery jewelry"

seriously...go look it up.

Using it in a sentence....The Donald has perfected trumpery.

John McAfee announces he’s running for President. (ignore the murder thing, I guess)

There’s yet another candidate jumping into the race for the White House, and he’s got his own political party.

John McAfee, the antivirus software magnate who fled Belize after police tried to question him for murder, confirmed to CNNMoney that he plans to run for President in 2016 and that he’d created his own party — the Cyber Party.

In August, McAfee was arrested for DUI and possession of a handgun while he was under the influence. He said the case was still pending and would be back in court in November. He said it wasn’t alcohol but Xanax that made him “dysfunctional” — a claim he said would be supported by the blood test.

McAfee also made news in January 2014 when he fled police in Belize who sought to question him for the death of his neighbor.


He likes Trump, thinks Trump is "smart".

In a related story:
Intel is distancing itself from the name of its top security product, McAfee, after years of having its name dragged through the mud thanks to the misadventures of its founder, John McAfee.


A thought experiment.............What would happen if all guns were colored pink?

Better yet, rainbow colors.

Cause there is this former Blackwater contractor/RW Xian who is hawking a weapon with Christian stuff on it , saying it would keep Muslins from using it.


Man invents the "God Gun"

designed with the purpose that it will not be able to be used by Muslim terrorists.

On the right side of the rifle, the Bible verse, Psalm 144:1 is laser etched into the magazine well. The Bible verse says, “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”

“Right now and as it has been for quite some time, one of the biggest threats in the world is and remains Islamic terrorism,” said Ben “Mookie” Thomas, spokesman for Spike’s Tactical, who is a former Navy Seal and former Blackwater security contractor.
“We wanted to make sure we built a weapon that would never be able to be used by Muslim terrorists to kill innocent people or advance their radical agenda.”

The Crusader features a shield with a cross on the left side of the lower unit, while the safety selector markings feature the words, “Peace” for safe, “War” for semi-automatic, and “God wills it.” On the reverse side of the safety selector are the Latin translations of those words, Pax Pacis, Bellum, and Deus Vult.

I really wanted to post this in GD so more people could see it...but, given the :no guns" rule there...............

Rick Perry: 'A Broken Clock Is Right Once A Day'

God, I knew he was dumb, but i had idea he was dumber than Shrub.

Perry was on Fox News after Trump said during an news conference that the former governor was getting out of the GOP race.

Perry began by misusing a cliche.

"A broken clock is right once a day," Perry said.

He went on to say he was not dropping out of the race
