Almost on a daily basis. Anyone here believe it’s all happenstance? If so, FReepmail me, I have some real estate I’d like to show you. [chortle]
*slow clap* The media’s REALLY reaching for stories during the shutdown.
The surprising thing about this is that there is a FEDERAL building in Wheeling. I grew up in the area and had no idea. Does every small town have a federal building now? How long until people realize that their tentacles have reached into every corner of our lives?
The post office?
The regime is frantically triggering these ‘shootings’ to change the subject from Benghazi, then Putin/Syria, then the WW2 Memorial, then Obamatollah’s polls tanking......
In WV, they do. And their all named after Robert Byrd.
Must have been an AK-47 - they sound like that, don't they?
What US state?
Anyone know the whereabouts of George Zimmerman?
West Virginia where you can travel the Interstates and see “NoBama No Work zone” Billboards. The state has been hit hard by the war on coal. The gas industry has picked up some of the slack.
If there’s an outhouse, there’s a federal buillding and a mosque complete with madrassa big enough for 100.000 people.
37% Almost as bad as Bush at 36%...
(daaamn where'd this virus come from????)
The octopus....Danny Cassalero...spelling msy be wrong. Was found dead in a WV motel IIRC. Had been investigating the Clintons/government far reachhing corruption.
Jusf before he died he told his friends and relatives that he feared for his life and had no intention of killing himself.
The death was ruled a suicide...
Well, OK. Besides the post office. Which, by the way, is at least a constitutional responsibility of the federal government.
Naturally it’s an “assault weapon”.
Many times when shootings happen in federal buildings, it’s some disgruntled guy plugging his lawyer.
At the very least, what I notice most recently domestically is beginning to compare to the batting average of enemies targeted overseas [drone strikes rather than capture]-— DEAD.
People are stressed, unhappy and on edge because of Obama’s actions. The mentally ill or even people in a bad emotional situation are going to be particularly upset, and that’s what we’re seeing now. They’re the canaries in the coal mine.
Did anybody here know that the 64-yr-old man who immolated himself on the Mall a few days ago snapped off a military salute in the direction of the Capitol before igniting the gasoline?
Don’t laugh. We had a neighbor who snootily bragged be worked for the Federal Government. Turned out he WAS a mailman.
Prolly 0bammy’s War on Coal.
Did you know he was black? I didn’t until I read some obscure blog article.
Update at the link says shooter was a former Wheeling cop.
“Must have been an AK-47 - they sound like that, don’t they?”
Possibly an AR-15 shotgun.
that Bridge over the Grand Canyon looks like a good deal
what sort of mortgage do you recommend.?
I dont know that theres a federal building in the local count seat here north pf San Francisco in Marin County??
” we didnt start the fire”
HAD to be a YEA PARTY ..”jihadist”.../s
I just hope thet dont accidently shoot Chris Cox soon to be world famous for mowing the lawn at the Linclon Memorial
hmm I DID hear a rumor.... that this was a White Hispanic Cracker...come to think of it.
Im thinking he was shooting the building per se....and didnt care abut the occupants.
Im praying that PEACE prevails.
Or an AR-48 - whatever it takes.

Maybe tomorrow Obama will keep little old ladies on Social Security from entering their Bingo Hall at the VFW because it’s on Federal property and he can get down to 35%. One can hope.
Oh MY!! he will be painted...as a Tea Party Jihadist...you can read it as plain as day between the lines
Shakespeare was clearly the protagonist for this act..
former after ....what I have to wonder.
the arrangers sure know how to find the unstable dont they
Will Obama Stop the Music This November?
The current shutdown of 17% of the federal government has primed America for chaos with constant left-wing rhetoric and news media reports couched in apocalyptic terms such as crisis, brink, catastrophe, hostage, arsonist and terrorist. But a catastrophe is useful to a would-be tyrant only as long as it can be blamed on a hated enemy. In 1933 Hitlers agents burned the Reichstag, not just to sow fear and confusion, but primarily in order to charge his Communist enemies with treason as an excuse to obliterate them. The German mainstream media dutifully parroted the Nazi Party line, without investigating the true source of the arson.
A similar pattern of scapegoating has been followed in the United States throughout the term of President Obama. For example, leading Democrats and their shills in the mainstream media have long been salivating at the prospect of a Tea Party conservative going on a violent rampage. We saw this in Tucson immediately after the Gabby Giffords shooting, after the Aurora, Colorado, theater attack, and after the recent Washington Navy Yard shooting, when Democrats and their media allies rushed to blame Tea Party terrorists in early reports based upon zero evidence. As far as we know, all of these attacks were carried out by deranged individuals following the orders of inner demons, but still the left hopes for a violent response by right-wing bitter clingers, so named by President Obama himself during a private fund raiser.
The current government shutdown seems to be designed to provoke a violent right-wing reaction. War memorials have been barricaded, even iconic national parks such as those at Valley Forge, Yellowstone, and Mount Rushmore have been closed to the American public that purportedly owns them and undoubtedly funds them. At Yellowstone, senior citizens and foreign tourists have been rousted from paid private hotel rooms by armed federal agents and forcibly bused out of the park. Around the closed Mount Rushmore National Park, cones have been set along public highways to prevent tourists even from stopping to take photographs. Meanwhile, a demonstration on the otherwise closed National Mall by illegal aliens demanding amnesty was welcomed by the Obama administration with open arms.
In my opinion, the intention of these selected park closures is not only to inflict psychological pain upon the administrations perceived enemies but to provoke a violent response by fed-up Constitutional conservatives. Thus far, none has risen to the bait; so what will the regime do next? I believe that President Obama may be planning to up the ante by orders of magnitude. How might this happen? The government shutdown over the continuing resolution bill has turned on the Democrats demand for a clean CR, but the real battle will come next week when the national debt limit is reached.
What will happen if President Obama and the Democrats in Congress demand a clean debt extension, with no upper limits and no attached conditions, just as they have demanded a clean CR to fund current government operations? In the battle over the debt limit extension, either the Republicans will fold and accede to Democrat demands for infinite debt, or they will stand their ground just as they have over the CR. If the Republicans refuse to grant Obama an unlimited debt extension, he may play the final card required to send the United States into such violent turmoil that he will be able to declare a state of emergency and rule by decree under the National Emergencies Act.
How would such horrible conditions be created that President Obama might be able to justify seizing emergency power? By cutting off all federal entitlement payments while claiming that he cannot continue them without a debt extension, secure in the knowledge that the mainstream media will continue to dutifully serve as his propaganda arm, blaming recalcitrant Republicans for all of the negative consequences.
While senior citizens on Social Security and other federal pension plan recipients may not immediately take to the streets, going on violent rampages of rioting, looting and burning, there is a segment of our population that will do exactly that: many of the 50 million Americans who today literally put the food on their tables by using an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. While the states administer their individual EBT programs, most of the money comes from the federal government. Please read my previous essay When the music stops: how Americas cities may explode in violence to understand the tremendous risk that will accompany a cutoffeven brieflyof EBT payments.
The fact that thousands of Americans might be injured or killed during the nationwide riots that would follow the looting of supermarkets and delivery trucks will not be a moral impediment to the architects of Operation Fast and Furious. You will recall that this infamous law enforcement operation resulted in the murders of hundreds of innocent Mexicans and at least two U.S. federal agents by untracked firearms supplied directly to the Mexican drug cartels by our own federal law enforcement agencies. With Operation Fast and Furious (gun control under the radar in Obamas own words), this administration has already crossed the mass-murder-for-political-ends Rubiconand the mainstream media cooperated in the cover-up.
A lifelong Marxist revolutionary who has caused hundreds to be murdered in an attempt at political gain on gun control is not likely to blanch at the prospect of thousands dying in bloody food riots when the stakes are incalculably higher. If the music stops and our cities burn, Obama may grasp the opportunity to declare a state of emergency and seize dictatorial powers from the fire and ashes. Those who resist his rule by emergency decree will be declared to be Tea Party terrorists by Democrat leaders and their captive media, and we may finally see why the Department of Homeland Security has been purchasing those billions of hollow-point bullets, UAV drones, and armored vehicles.
If this is their calculation, it is a diabolical plan indeed. But a plan to ride a tiger is not the same as riding the tiger. Permanent rule by emergency decree may not be as simple to accomplish as would-be left-wing tyrants believe. Millions of Americans will not be fooled by the deliberately instigated torching of our cities and will not go quietly into the night of Marxist tyranny.

Someone got the Wheeling Feeling.
I’m sure Shellie (Blabbermouth) Zimmerman would also like to know . She needs new earrings, stockings and that new Apple smart phone while you’re at it.
ahahaha YOU BAD!

It’s seems in and around D.C. there are a lot of distraught or pissed off people nowadays...
They’d better put in moats and mine fields around government buildings....Maybe hire another 180,000 people to protect them.
I did read that about the man, his name was John Constantino, who had three adult children. Nowhere have I seen a face photo of this man or his family, not even on the Daily Mail from Britian.
FOX news just reported the shooter was a former policeman.
I’m wonder how long it will taken until were informed that
1. Shooter a Tea Pary Jihadist
2. Workplace Violence by Mohammad Ackmed Ackmed Ben Drinkin
3. Nation Must Shelter in Place
during this ever so very important...SHUTDOWN.
