New details are coming out this morning on a shooting inside a doctor’s office at a Philadelphia-area wellness center. While meeting with his female case worker and psychiatrist, the patient opened fire, killing the woman.
Jonathan Hunt reported on America’s Newsroom that the doctor, Lee Silverman, suffered a graze wound to his head, but was able to pull out his own gun and wound the shooter, who was identified as 49-year-old Richard Plotts.
Workers outside the office reportedly heard an argument before the shots rang out. Plotts is in critical condition after being wounded three times.
After Plotts was wounded, workers ran into the office and held him down until police arrived.
The police chief told Hunt that without a doubt, he believes Dr. Silverman saved lives with his actions. Hunt reported that the doctor did not need a permit to keep the gun in his office.
But the hospital’s policy prohibits anyone other than law enforcement officers from carrying a firearm in its facilities. It’s unclear whether the doctor will face disciplinary action.

EU fights Google over right to be forgotten

Interesting.  EU is trying to force search engines to remove content at the content owner’s request.  That’s a sword that cuts both ways.  Sure, private people get their privacy back, but could public people — politicians — selectively erase their mistakes?

"How large is America’s prison problem? More than 2.4 million people are behind bars in the United States today, either awaiting trial or serving a sentence. That’s more than the combined population of 15 states, all but three U.S. cities, and the U.S. armed forces. They’re scattered throughout a constellation of 102 federal prisons, 1,719 state prisons, 2,259 juvenile facilities, 3,283 local jails, and many more military, immigration, territorial, and Indian Countryfacilities.”

The writing is on the wall.  If you live in the US, gtfo.  This, plus the coming financial meltdown, plus the militarized police, plus the urban-trained military, plus the hundred-thousand drones, plus China buying the banks that comprise the Fed, plus the border security that can just as easily keep you in, plus … you get it.  GTFO.
That means me, too.  Time to go, folks.

Feminists complain about men wanting to control women all day but no group has ever wanted to control women like feminists do. They constantly belittle and demonize any woman who disagrees with them. They think all women should blindly accept feminism, and if they…
