Won’t Get Fooled Again: Romney’s Terrible Record as Mass. Governor

Good summary of Romney's disastrous term as governor of Massachusetts. My kids were in public school at this time, and I believe we had Prop 2 1/2 overrides in my town almost every other year. Our schools stayed at the top in Massachusetts, but it was in spite of Romney, not because of anything that he did.

My son just spent 9 months in Eastern Afghanistan training the Afghanis

And they were quite good at using the cannons when he left. Asshole.

Family says accused soldier needs PTSD treatment, not punishment

http://www.star-telegram.com/2012/07/13/4099139/family-says-accused-soldier-needs.html



What happened Jan. 13 in Eisenhauer's apartment outside the gates of Fort Bragg seems inexplicable to those who know him. Authorities say Eisenhauer opened fire on police and firefighters responding to a small fire on his apartment deck, then engaged in a prolonged shootout that nearly killed him. His attorney and family say the events make sense only in Eisenhauer's head, where he apparently thought he was defending his post from an attack by insurgents.

"He hears the sounds of rushing footsteps up the stairwell and a loud banging on his door, and he flashes back to Afghanistan," Waple said. "He gets his Glock 19 pistol from under his mattress -- he's sleeping on the floor -- and he starts firing. That led to nearly a 90-minute shootout."

When police finally gained entry to the apartment, Eisenhauer was found bleeding heavily from four gunshot wounds, including one in the chest. Waple said "all the glass was shot out, there were three tear gas containers used, approximately 30 bullet holes inside the apartment." He described a "scene consistent with a combat environment."

When he regained consciousness in the hospital, his attorney said, his first words, charted by a nurse present, were "Who's got the roof?"


His family and lawyer are trying to get the jurisdiction changed from the county to the military, where he would receive treatment for his PTSD.
