Biden reveals brush with gun massacre
washington times ^ | 1/17/13 | Dave Boyer

Posted on 01/17/2013 4:46:08 PM PST by ColdOne

Mr. Biden told a U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting in Washington that it was “pure coincidence” that he was in Lancaster County, Pa., on Oct. 2, 2006, when a deranged gunman was killing students nearby at a tiny Amish school.

“I happened to be literally — probably, it turned out, to be a quarter of a mile [away] at an outing when I heard gunshots in the woods,” Mr. Biden recounted. “We didn’t know. … We thought they were hunters.”

After that,he sat down and designed the Abrams tank.Right about the time Al Bore was inventing the internet.
The country owes a great debt to these men of vision.

So, now we can expect every "massacre" to have the implement(s) as a modifier.

I guess what is going on with the economy, unemployment and people generally being robbed of their net worth, self esteem and hope could be called an "Obama massacre".

hinckley buzzard~:” The Amish I grew up with had long guns.”

Since they don’t have electricity or radios ,..should we tell them about the latest edict from the “Emperor “ ?
or
Just let them find out ?

Well, Biden is very close to a disaster every time he sits or stands next to Obama, but then, Biden is also a disaster for the country.

More people have died as a result of Obama's lack of leadership, than died in that Amish massacre.

Reminds me of a football player with a made-up girlfriend.

Joe, you worthless sack of excrement, you are not a little Amish school girl, so you were in no danger. I doubt you were within 50 miles of that school.

Honestly, these press hogs have no shame.

Varmints go after Amish livestock and eat Amish crops.

The Amish neighbor I had up north said there was no strict prohibition on hunting but it was generally seen as less productive than farming. He did say that when a deer was killed to protect crops it didn’t go to waste.

I imagine there is a greatly increased risk of a tragic incident in the crowd every time crazy Joe appears in front of a live audience. There should always be a clearly open exit provided at every event for individuals to escape through. Talk about a walking nimbus cloud.

And weren’t you glad, Joe, that there weren’t any armed staff in that school with guns? It really made those kids SO much safer.

It’s people like Biden that keep most people from picking up hitchhikers.

My bet is that babbling brook isn’t telling the truth...AGAIN.

I never told anyone this, but I was right next to Joe Biden on the exact day at the exact moment when his brain was actually living in the real world.

Only a split second, it was. A flash of sun. And then it passed. Then the earth shook, the sky was black again.

I was talking to an Amish neighbor last year when a cellphone starts ringing in his pocket.He answers,has a short conversation and hangs up.Just the wife calling to see when he’d be home for dinner.

Joe Buffoon Biden is like that blowhard uncle who never shuts his mouth. He keeps rattling on incoherently. Joe is the only person in the building who doesn't know he's a horse's ass.

In 1848 Joe Biden tried to stop Claude-Étienne Minié from selling his newly invented Minie ball but republican death mongers who stood to make big money off their investment obstructed his valiant attempt.
