We just had a 66 year old grandmother shoot a guy that broke into her house in Dallas. Here is the story:A few years back I read an article in a Lebanon, Missouri newspaper (front page) about a man on his way back to St.Louis decided to rob an 84 year old lady who lived in the city of Lebanon. While breaking through her front door she filled it full of .45 caliper holes. He made it back to St.Louis and was found in a hospital on his death bed.
The Lebanon, Missouri newspaper illustrated an 84 year old lady holding a .45 caliper weapon with holes in her front door.
The St.Louis Post-Dispatch had an article on page eight stating a St.Louis city resident was shot in a Missouri rural town after his car ran out of gas and was knocking on doors asking for gas or money.
The question I like to ask, if the car was out of gas how did it make it back to St.Louis which was a three hour drive? Of course the St.Louis paper did not get into that subject.
Self respect is one of the greatest assets that are missing today.
And if you havenâ€™t got any respect for yourself, how on earth can you have any respect for anyone else or their property?
The thing that I can not understand in the current riots is that the cars that they are torching are those cars of their own in their own area, their own housing estate, tower block or... NoÃ«lle tells me that she has heard of one torch that was the "child's" own parents car.Well in my opinion, if someone is destroying their own property they must have never worked or paid for it to begin with.
I just canâ€™t understand people whom if they donâ€™t get what they want, they throw a temper tamper and destroy everything in site. Who sympathizes with them, the politically correct government? Who pays for all the damage, the tax payer who works hard and pays for their own worldly possessions? Why canâ€™t people be accountable for what they do instead of the government paying billons of dollars supposedly making it better for the misunderstood people?
I think a lot of problems can be resolved just by setting down and talking out issues. I personally think all problems have a solution(s) if people would have an open mind. The alterative for not finding a solution is wars, roits and ECT. Who pays for that, yap the people who works and pays for their worldly possessions, the tax payer? Why is the minority always telling the majority who pays for everything what to do?
I know this all sounds very simplistic, but things are going to have to
change or this world is going to be like everyday life in Israeli.
Be aware that the French government announced yesterday that it has raised
Patbretagne said in an e-mail sent to him
its terror alert level from RUN to HIDE.
The only two higher levels in France are Surrender and Collaborate.
The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white
flag factory, effectively paralyzing their military capability.
This is funny and I know the world community in general thinks this way but----
Maybe the government will hide, the people will fight. Just ask any WWII veteran who had dealings with the French underground.
Finally in GB we've gone from "pretend nothing's happening" to "make
another cup of tea". Our higher levels are "remain resolutely cheerful" and
Have you ever fought beside an British Commando? I have and they are one of the toughest fighters in the world, but only after tea!!!
Below are pictures of the French people celebrating their Liberation 60 years later. The soldiers you see are French civilians dressed like American WWII soldiers. Notice the left /middle corner you will see real US Army soldiers of the 29th Division marching through a French town with people cheering.
Also notice the US and British Flags on the side of the buildings.
