Anyone notice that after the last election a lot more people are dieing? What was sometimes said in jest,...”0bama’s fault” is becoming all to real.
Horrible story. Too many of them these days. The story doesn’t mention a mother. I’m not sure I hope she’s surviving somewhere...
It looks like the “worst financial crisis since the Great Depression” is working out precisely the way the Democrats planned it.
A father killed himself and his two sons last week. That was part of a custody dispute. Wonder if this is simular.
In almost all of these cases, someone is newly unemployed and I suspect feels like there’s no hope.
Orting’s only about 10 miles from where I live.
I know they’ll mention this at church tomorrow.
Gee. I was kinda hoping we could have a day without the report of a mass murder.
Guess this ain’t it.
A lot of folks are losing "hope". It's gonna get a lot worse, i fear.
Obama’s been in office for three months, and while he’s no good, the bad state of our country is mostly due to the terrible president we had the previous eight years.
I would have much rather had Bush over ANY DemocRAT.
Your a dumb-ass.
It really makes me sick. Kids trust their dad and then he blows them away. I can’t even entertain the thought of doing harm to my three children or my wife. There’s a sickness in this land, and I believe it has something to do with our nation’s rejection of God.
Don't Give Up.
You are here for a reason.
There were huge numbers of suicides and family killings during the depression as well.
Is it always a full moon in your world, Moonman? You’re howlingly funny, and a little crazy too.
That’s not 100% accurate. Consider the decisions made under Barry’s watch: printing more money, taking over GM, failed stimulus plan, AIG bonus fiasco.
Prayers to those poor kids...
