There is no hope for America, we’re doomed. This is where Reagan came from.
Now if he just converts to Islam and brings a prototype bomb into a public school he’ll get an invite to the White House.
Obama hates this kind of story unless the victims are black or Muslim. Then it’s a good story.
WOW! I sit in stunned amazement!
Why am I not surprised he's a Marine too? I don't want to sound irrational or anything but has any Marine ever done anything bad? Or even ever passed up an opportunity to do something good for another? I don't think I've ever read any stories where one went bad and all good stories seem at least most of the time surrounded by them. It's like they are supermen or something sheesh!
But not since Oswald.
Chris Kyle’s murderer was a Marine. We have our share of such people. It pleases me in the heart to see a shining star like the article, though.
Well, at least it made the news in a UK paper -
We’ve had our bad apples ( Lee Harvey Oswald and Charles Joseph Whitman)
Thank you, Ferreira.
