3 O’clock Shift Change rush hour in Vegas always has wrecks and carnage.

People rushing to work, or home, with people who have NO FREAKIN’ CLUE where they are, or where they are going, added to the mix.

I hope he is okay too. I don’t want the MSM to have ANY excuse for ditching the Benghazi story.

Reid’s caravan was reportedly involved in a six-car accident at about 1 p.m. local time on northbound Interstate 15.

The Nevada Highway Patrol said Reid was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to CNN.

Reid was taken to the emergency room at University Medical Center in Las Vegas.

Reid, a senator representing Nevada since 1987, has been Democratic leader since January 2007.

You hide and watch, Obozo will try to milk it for at least one vote and his American Pravda boot licking media will loudly claim that the GOP staged the accident.

You know sometimes be take the moral high ground a little too much as conservatives. It’s probably why the Left runs roughshod over us most of the time. I think Reid is a loathsome, odious creature, who wouldn’t give two Shiites if it were one of us..

Seeing the ‘tone’ of the posts (for the most part) I will just lay back on Grandmas advice “If you can’t say something nice about someone STFU”. (Grandma was ahead of her time).

These Libs really amaze me.
One of BO’s first bits of advice was to ‘watch your money and don’t go to LV or such”.
He (they) are openly against coal and the Appalachian (coal) states are undecided.
He (they) want to cut the DOD budget, drop the # of ships in the USN and the Military states are either undecided or definitely appear to be leaning towards BO.

Have we gone mad????

Shalom...Ya'ALL!

It does Not really matter what we say or think about: Senator Harry Reid.

Reid does Not have to worry about US too much...but He had Better Be VERY WORRIED about What GOD ALMIGHTY thinks about him!

GOD is WATCHING And LISTENING to EVERYTHING that Mr. Reid and His MINIONS are Doing and have already Done; in Private as well as in Public.

This may very well be just the Beginning of The LORD'S JUDGMENT on those in High Places Who Disregard and Reject HIS WORD, THE LORD YESHUA/JESUS The Messiah and HIS COMMANDMENTS!

WHO'S NEXT?

Simcha7.

I doubt the media will put it this way, but I suspect the government caravan caused the accident, by reckless speeding.

They think of themselves as all-important.

Articles make no mention of injuries to anybody else, as if he is the only person that matters.

We have far too much government, costing far too much of our money, and wielding far too much power.

Power to control most media from telling the truth about things like this.

This is a man who went to the floor of The United States Senate (!!!) and accused a private citizen of commiting felony tax evasion and of being a liar. He made these assertions without a shred of evidence and based upon information from an anonymous (and probably ficticious) source. This is only one example of the kind of filth this guy swims in for a living.

Well excuse me my FRiends if I really don't care what happens to that kind of man.

Overall, not an optimal way to spend a weekend or longer. Even minor rib injuries entail long term pain.

Well I don't happen to have a “tin foil hat” as you put it but I do know how those a$$holes operate and since I live in the same state as that SOB Reid claims I have seen how he operates ever since he first got into office at some level. No filthier a piece of work exists
