    I was driving in bumper to bumper rush hour traffic once, years ago, in San Antonio. I have a bad inner ear/balance disorder and cannot safely take my eyes off the road while driving. Someone at a driveway intersection kept honking at me, and when I didn’t look over, kept honking. I finally got annoyed and flipped them the bird. A few seconds later the driver ran up to my car door and banged on the door. I immediately thought I was going to be killed or at least cursed out. Luckily for me it turned out to be an old friend I had not seen in years who had been trying to get my attention. I did learn the lesson though, don’t shoot the bird at people, especially if your car isn’t moving. I was really scared. Bad manners and anger don’t belong on the road.

    The boy had said he was glad his mom had grabbed the guy, because when he had hit the car the boy thought they were going to all be killed. He might have been so frightened he was hyperventilating or if asthmatic, short of breath. And don’t forget, he had just lost his only brother a few months ago, probably feared he would die also.

    She was angry because her son was in the back seat and she had just lost her other son to illness since shortly after the school year began, according to what she is said to have said. The thought that his reckless driving could have killed her only remaining child made her throw all caution to the wind and she went after the guy. She was basically yelling at him until he tried to flee the scene, which was when she and then her passenger (boy friend) grabbed the guy. She said she was not only angry at the way he had hit them, but that he was driving that way in a school zone.

    He had had a gun. He had car jacked the vehicle he was driving at gunpoint. They found the gun later on the seat of the car. He had not had a chance to grab it yet when mama bear came at him. He was no doubt a bit stunned himself after wrecking the car that way. Yes, mama bear and her boyfriend were lucky they did not get shot. And luckily her son was not killed or seriously injured. He would not have been the one rolling on the ground, he stayed in the car until near the end of the video, you can see his mother hugging him. She said the first thing she did was ask him if he was OK, when he answered, Yeah, she went after the guy who hit them.

    Mama bear driver had lost her other child a few months ago to illness and her only other child had been in the back seat when hit. He was shaken up, taken to the hospital to be checked out but released later. She was that upset because the criminal had come close to killing her only remaining son. Mama bear for sure!!

    I have read that also, that the anti-Semitism in Europe has gotten so bad that many are fleeing to Israel – which if you are familiar with the Bible is really just more fulfillment of end times prophecy.
    But muslims are not fleeing this country, they are swarming into it to further destabilize it while they still have Obama in office.
    That said, none of that has anything to do, in my opinion, with these kids getting murdered by this progressive, atheist, pro-homosexual lobby supporter, pro-abortion supporter, pro MSNBC viewer, proHuffPo reader. This killer supported anything and everything that is contrary to what made our nation great. And say what you wish about ISIS, these kids had no known connection with any terror group, they were quietly attending college and dental school, and I have not found anything to indicate they had ever done anything to justify the way they were murdered. They appear to be really nice, well brought up, well behaved American kids, with great potential, slaughtered for no real reason.
    The girls’ father says their murder was a hate crime. ALL murder is a hate crime.

    Answer to destroyer of civilization – Neither, he killed them over a ******* parking space they had been fighting over for months Guess being an atheist, he does not believe life is sacred.
    Sounds like they were good kids also. Parents, brothers and sisters, friends must all be heartbroken. Really inexcusable crime.

    While still miraculous, a lot of the lack of permanent brain damage has to do with the fact that he drowned in the extremely cold water. There have been other cases of drownings where people fell through ice into near freezing water. The resultant hypothermia lowers the activity of the brain and heart to the point where there is little damage if the heart beat is restored. A major miracle here is that they did not give up on the boy. And I am sure his mother’s prayers helped. There are a lot of miracles involved in this story beyond the prayer, like the fact that he drowned in freezing water, the fact the doctors did not give up on him. I hope the boy makes a full recovery and dedicates his life to the service of God. And a good wake up call to ERs not to give up too quickly.

    You can be sure this is radioactive ammo, and anyone who finds it and opens it will likely die or suffer severe radiation poisoning. There have been similar boxes lost with similar warnings given, and the boxes, which had often been recovered by people where then turned in. Not that long ago a similar looking box was lost and when found had been opened, and they put out a warning to whoever had opened it or had contact with it to immediately seek medical care, that they could well die. With a warning like this, you can just hope people heed the warning and also that the ammo does not get into the wrong hands. Especially since the warning is out, and people who might want to get their hands on something like this are now aware it is out there, it might be a race to see who gets it first.

    I’ll be honest, were it not for handicapped parking spaces I likely would have a hard time shopping, My back and legs and hips have gotten so bad that I really have a hard time shopping anymore and it would make it far more difficult if I had to walk a long distance to the store. I no longer can do the entire Walmart in one day, I have to split my shopping there into two or three days,, one for the grocery area, one for the central area and then again another day if I have to go into the nursery or pet area. I recently had shopped and was in so much pain when I was checking out the poor, sweet little girl checking me out was sure I was having a heart attack and I had to keep reassuring her I was just in a LOT of pain and would be OK once I got home and could sit down for awhile. I do not take any pain meds when I have to drive as even motrin makes me drowsy enough that I feel it compromises my ability to drive safely. And I had been very lucky while still in the Army when a neurologist had told me I would always have pain, learn to live with it rather than allowing a doctor to get me hooked on narcs. I have since that time seen so many people get hooked on narcs and then go through hell getting off of them. So I’ll take narcs if needed for the first day or two after surgery when the pain would otherwise be unbearable, and then go back to my motrin. As I’ve aged it has gotten harder and harder to walk, but praise God, I still can, so life is good enough I guess.

    I had a similar situation in the 1980s when I parked my car in the handicapped parking at a grocery store. As I stepped out of my car some man started yelling at me that the spot was for the handicapped. I had VA disabled vet plates on my car but guess the guy thought they must belong to my husband, not I. I responded in a not-very-ladylike manner, and just said, why the hell do you think the VA gave me disabled vet plates if I’m not disabled. The man slinked away. My ex-husband is disabled also, and bet he has never had anyone question his use of his disabled plates. I had served as a journalist in the Army and allowed myself to be talked into skydiving by my Information Office and the head of the skydiving club so I could write an article about it and get more WACs to do the same. I got busted up so bad that I doubt I could have written anything that would have gotten any of the WACs who knew me to jump out of an airplane. Eight surgeries on the lower back, osteomyelitis of the spine, and three surgeries on the cervical spine since then, not told I will need both hips replaced and the left knee. For God’s sakes folks, don’t jump out of a perfectly good airplane. The COL had told me I would land like a feather. When I saw how fast the ground was approaching I figured I was dead for sure and forgot everything I had been taught. Broke my leg immediately, fell forward and had the air knocked out of me where I could not move or talk for at least 20 minutes. Lucky to be alive.

    Yes, the Brits have free healthcare, much like Obama is aiming us toward. And yes, they do decide whether a person deserves certain medical treatment and they practice rationing of certain treatments and medications depending of their idea of cost/benefit ratio. I know that some medicine that has proven very beneficial in treating breast cancer is no longer allowed due to its cost. They have those death panels Obamacare is putting in effect in this country. And the death panels will not just apply to those on Obamacare but to those on any form of govt sponsored health care, to include Medicare, VA care, Medicaide, etc.
    In Great Britain they have the same two-tiered health care we will soon have here. those who can afford good healthcare and can pay on their own for it will still have excellent health care, the rest of us, sorry Charlie, expect to die young.

    The problem here is not with the rodeo attendees who stayed when the imam prayed but with those who invited him to pray in the first place. They need to be replaced or at least rebuked, and perhaps educated on the inconsistencies of the beliefs of muslims and anyone not muslim. When you have a cult “religion” that demands everyone who does not believe in their version of said cult “religion” needs to be killed, members of that cult should never be invited to pray over those their cult demands convert to that cult or be killed. Just pure and simple logic.

  • [1] February 1, 2015 at 1:31pm

    Have to disagree with you on that. If those in attendance know or knew that islam is a false religion and allah a false god, and so just totally disregarded the “prayer,” I do not think they bowed their knee to allah or took the mark of the beast. Certainly did not take the mark of the beast, if you even know what the Bible says about the mark of the beast They had bought their tickets, which are not cheap, and I see no reason they should have refused to use those tickets because some ******* official decided to have a member of a false religion “pray” over the ceremony. In one ear, hopefully, and out the other, and then let the rodeo begin. And I certainly do not think they sold their soul by attending a rodeo event where a muslim prayed or preyed. There is only one unforgivable sin, and attending a rodeo event prayed over by a muslim is not it.

    OK gonna share a joke with you all that will probably upset at least half of you.
    A salesman goes out to this guy’s farm and sees a 3 legged pig. He asks the farmer why the pig only has three legs. The farmer tells him that a while back the house had caught on fire and the pig had gone in and awakened everyone and saved their lives. And the salesman says, but that doesn’t explain why he has three legs. The farmer goes on to say, once he was out in the stock tank and his boat sank and the pig swam out and saved his life. And the salesman again says but that doesn’t explain why he only has three legs. The farmer, getting frustrated, just says, With a pig like that, you do not eat him all at once.
    Good day ya’ll.

    My landlords allow them to run loose in about 40-50 acres. So what is the big deal with them having an 11 acre pen? You want them to free range.

  • January 30, 2015 at 11:44pm

    Yeah, but if you raise them for meat, like my landlords do, and slaughter them when young for the bacon, ham and sausage, they don’t usually end up being such a problem. the 700+ pound boar who tried to visit my house New Year’s morning was one of their breeders, but after repeatedly escaping from their pasture, he was deemed too much of a liability and slaughtered. Lots of good meat in a 700+ pound pig.

    On New Years Day, early in the morning my dogs were barking like crazy. I was not ready to get up and was yelling at them to shut up. Then I heard some really loud noise at the front door and got up to see what was going on. My landlord has pigs which are part feral, and one of the boars, about 700 pounds was on the other side of my front door, trying to take the door down. He had gotten out of his pen area a couple of times before. I called the landlord and told them that their pig was trying to take down my front door. He came over and shooed the pig out of my yard back into his pasture. Later he decided he needed to take the pig out, since it had discovered how to get out and was doing so repeatedly. If the pig had gotten off their property and injured any of the children in the area, the liability could have cost them everything they owned. They did end up killing the pig, which they would have rather not have done, and especially not on New Years Day, and then processing him into food. I am basically a city-slicker at heart, and have not lived in the countryside that long, and this was probably the most nerve wracking New Years morning wake up I have ever had. Did have to apologize to the dogs for yelling at them for barking first thing in the morning, should have realized they would not have been doing so if there had not been something very abnormal going on.

    I am sure she is right. Kids are not even allowed to defend themselves. If they get involved at all in any sort of altercation, even defending themselves or a friend, or teacher, they face suspension or alternative school. I believe that is why so many teens who are bullied end up killing themselves. They can’t defend themselves nor can their friends.
    BTW – some other kid must have had a cell phone to have made this video.

  • [4] January 25, 2015 at 12:50pm

    The other kids were probably afraid if they got involved they would end up suspended on most schools’ zero tolerance. If they even defend themselves in most schools they will end up suspended.
