I can't get that one to load but found more at this link, including pictures:

Gunman, a recent convert to Islam, dead after Canadian soldier Nathan Cirillo killed at Ottawa war memorial

A long-haired man wielding a double-barreled shotgun brought terror to Canada’s capital Wednesday, paralyzing Parliament with a wild shootout after killing a young soldier — the second time this week the nation lost a military member to a suspected terrorist...

The chaos was believed to have been the work of a lone shooter identified by U.S. law enforcement sources as Michael Joseph Hall, a recent convert to Islam who was using the name Michael Zehaf-Bibeau. A friend of the killer described him as “erratic” and possibly “mentally ill” to a Canadian paper, but cops didn't immediately rule out an accomplice...

Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, reportedly came from a wealthy Montreal home and enjoyed a privileged childhood. His mother is a federal official in Canada’s immigration bureau. She divorced his father, a businessman, in 1999. But in recent years Zehaf-Bibeau racked up several drug arrests and The Globe and Mail newspaper reported he was designated a “high-risk traveler” by the Canadian government and had his passport seized...

The attack came weeks after Harper authorized air strikes against the murderous Islamic State militants who have gobbled up swaths of Iraqi and Syrian territory. And it happened just days after two Canadian armed forces members were hit outside Montreal by a car driven by another recent Muslim convert named Martin Rouleau. One soldier died.

Rouleau, 25, killed by police after a car chase, had changed his name to Ahmed Rouleau. Canadian authorities had confiscated his passport and he was among 90 people being tracked on suspicion of taking part in militant activities abroad or planning to do so. It’s not known if Zehaf-Bibeau was part of that group...


Can't get the pictures to post but they are good ones of the people, the scene and the area. It has the video I posted earlier on this thread. Both were troubled men. Very sorry for the people killed by them and their families. Not sure how Canadians will react to these events.

The GOP got that covered, denying a vote on a Surgeon General because he didn't meet NRA guidelines.

To be seen as a 'rootin' tootin' straight shooter' one must follow the 2A!

Because Ebola is just another Obama 'false flag' for...

Wait for it...

Just a little bit longer...

Ending the suspense now:

This is a real concern, you know!

Guessing the dogs didn't suffer much injury. Thanks for the information.

Jumps over the fence with a pair of white shorts? Hope that wasn't underwear.

Glad to read at the link that Gonzalez is getting mental health treatment. I posted on his issues that his family brought to light:

Iraq vet, 42, 'who stormed the White House had more than 800 rounds of ammunition, a machete and two hatchets stashed in his car'

By Lydia Warren, Kieran Corcoran and Wills Robinson - Updated: 22 September 2014

...But relatives have insisted that Gonzalez, from Copperas Cove, Texas, suffers from post traumatic stress disorder after serving three tours in Iraq. He retired after losing part of his foot in an IED blast.

Jerry Murphy, whose mother was married to Gonzalez, said relatives always knew Gonzalez owned a small arsenal of weapons but said they doubted he intended to hurt Obama...

According to agents who arrested him, Gonzalez said that he was desperate to see the President to warn him about 'the atmosphere collapsing...'

His ex-wife said he was very paranoid and began carrying weapons all the time. He was up all night and checking things out. Finally she couldn't take it anymore.

'Omar is a good guy, he's just got some issues that he needs help with. I think this is a cry out for help, what he's done. He really does need help. I just hope he can get it.'

Most comments on that website were sympathetic.

RF101 (Don Segretti 4.0) is what we get. While Breitbart, FNN, etc. do GOTV for the GOP.

If nothing else, we should vote against the GOP to spite them for all the misery they cause us, and let them lose money trying to fool us. Not voting for our values means voting for theirs.

You still have made a choice

But, but, but...

Are you trying to spoil the 2014 October surprise? Including just in case.

WAIT! Blackwater guys who MURDERED Iraqis were convicted by the DOJ?

Are you sure you meant to post that at this website? Is that you, Agent Mike?

Already read the defense of not voting in 2010 and 2014 last night. You know it's surely coming. But it's unwise to reply.

Besides, Kitteh and me are too busy talking on our Obamaphone, Comrade. We know notink!

Can't be said often enough. From one of the links:

Celebrating the glorious success of the GOP Government Shutdown!

Published on October 2, 2014 by The Daily Edge in The Cutting Edge

...For some inexplicable reason, all of the consequences of the GLORIOUS REPUBLICAN SHUTDOWN are not being reported 24-7 on Fox News and other media outlets. Some people are even claiming that the GOP-lead shutdown was “no big deal”. So, to make sure you don’t forget on this one year anniversary, here are some of the consequences of the 2013 government shutdown instigated by our great American conservatives:

...Because of the shutdown, the Centers for Disease Control had “reduced capacity to respond to outbreak investigations, processing of laboratory samples, and maintaining emergency operations.” Which is great, because here in America we never had to worry about the spread deadly infectious diseases, right?

– Because of the shutdown, more than 2 million hardworking Americans’ paychecks were affected, food safety operations ceased, and benefits for veterans, women, infants and children were disrupted.

– But most important of all, the GOP shutdown achieved the larger goal Republicans were seeking: It sent the entire US economy into a tailspin–our GDP shrank 2.1% in the first full quarter following the shutdown!

Much more at the link, as they've promised more of the same... Until the entire federal government is nothing more than a tool of the Koch brothers:


About last year for those who have forgotten, a satire some may enjoy:

I don't think you need to be blocked by HOF. To prevent accidentally posting here thorugh the

And just remember, there is no War on Women no matter how many times you might want to think that. It was just a fig leaf of HOF's imagination!
