    The woman's window was in line with the shooter and the vehicle he was shooting at.  The video shows where the shot was fired from, and where it went.  Video showing path of bullet  A shooter is responsible for every bullet that they fire.  It is important to know your target, and what is behind your target.  Some say that every bullet has an attorney attached to it.  There is good reason for this.  When you shoot, you are unleashing deadly force.  It is a grave responsibility. You need to be sure of your backstop. Do not unleash it...

    The late Saul Alinsky, the father of the community-organizing model that inspired both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, would be delighted. The man who championed moral relativism in tearing down the establishment (“In war, the end justifies almost any means”) is calling the tune of the Democratic party on voting issues. Last March, President Obama rhapsodized about what would happen under mandatory voting: “If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in this country.” Obama once served as the lawyer for the disgraced and defunct voter-registration group ACORN, and he is still toeing its line. Then last...

    Original Title:Hillary, the Fighter: Hillary Clinton Fought Secret Service Agent to Fly Into Blizzard During her campaign for president in 2008, then-Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was involved in a profanity-laced argument with one of her Secret Service agents, according to Glenn Thrush a reporter for THE POLITICO. Thrush witnessed Clinton being cursed at by an agent in an argument over her demand to fly the campaign plane, a Boeing 737, into a roiling Wisconsin blizzard. “I remember watching a usually stoic Secret Service agent cursing Clinton on the tarmac in Milwaukee when she ordered the campaign’s rattletrap 737 to fly...

(I guess it's "open-minded" to be "skeptical" about God, two five-letter words that start with "i" come to mind for me, the first is "irony," the second is much less polite)I don't know if this is the official rally cry of any liberal who fancies themselves as "progressive," but I'm sure none of them would disagree with this...Is this REALLY the most dangerous phrase?

    Perhaps you've heard it's going to be cold during today's Green Bay Packers game against the San Francisco 49ers. Perhaps you've also heard that "cold" is an understatement. Weather.com says it will feel like -17 degrees during the heart of the game. In weather like that, the beer in the stands can freeze before it's consumed. In weather like that, your hands go numb, your chest tightens, and just breathing the air can cause a burning sensation. It's just not weather designed for human beings. And, yet, they will play football in this weather, because the NFL doesn't cancel games...

    Some 60 years after carrying wounded soldiers and ammunition during heavy firefights, a decorated war horse praised as America’s greatest equine soldier during the Korean War is finally being immortalized. Staff Sgt. Reckless, a Mongolian mare that served in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War, made 51 solo trips during a five-day battle in March 1953, carrying nearly 10,000 pounds of ammunition and explosives from a supply depot to the front lines. She was wounded twice and later received two Purple Hearts for her service, as well as several other military decorations. On Friday, a 10-foot bronze statue...

    Shooter takes VP Joe Biden’s advice — and lands in trouble with cops Vice President Joseph R. Biden told a Field & Stream reporter in a published report on Monday that if “you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” That same day, a 22-year-old man in Virginia Beach, Va., did just that — and was charged with reckless handling of a firearm. WAVY 10 reported that the man was in his bedroom when two armed masked men leaned through the window and warned him to close the bedroom door. The 22-year-old...

    This is a very heart warming horse story that should be told.. Reckless was a pack horse during the Korean war, and she carried recoil less rifles, ammunition and supplies to Marines. Nothing too unusual about that, lots of animals got pressed into doing pack chores in many wars. But this horse did something more during the battle for a location called Outpost Vegas, this mare made 50 trips up and down the hill, on the way up she carried ammunition, and on the way down she carried wounded soldiers. What was so amazing? Well she made every one of...

    Last week’s State v. Christian (Ore. Ct.

Jonathan Christian, who was prosecuted for violating the ordinance, challenged it on overbreadth grounds, arguing that it covered a substantial amount of constitutionally protected conduct. (Such...

    The collapse of MF Global Holdings gives Americans yet another reason not to trust Wall Street. The firm filed for bankruptcy as federal regulators were looking for $600 million missing from customer accounts. Its CEO, former Democratic New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, had bet that European leaders would bail out smallish countries that were too big to fail. His bet did not pay off. The only good news out of this story is that Washington won't be bailing out MF Global. Corzine said he won't take a reported $12 million in severance. If he truly wants to atone, then Corzine...

    Subprime Scandal: With the housing market crashing again, the truth is finally dawning on some media elite that Washington played a bigger role in the mortgage mess than first told. A new book, "Reckless Endangerment," zeroes in on the corrupt partnership between Fannie Mae and Beltway insiders — who used the federally chartered firm as a giant slush fund to enrich themselves while pushing liberal housing schemes. This may be nothing new to our readers, who have read as much on these pages from the first days of the crisis. What's surprising here is the author — a New York...

    Madison is becoming an even bigger disaster for the Democrats. They have now undercut their top talking point agianst the Republicans in the budget battle. Mark Hemingway raises a great question in the Weekly Standard: "If it's so "reckless" to shutdown the government, why have Wisconsin legislators, the President and the DNC all supported the government shutdown in Wisconsin? Not only that, they have shutdown the government by fleeing the state and breaking the law, not to mention the illegal union strikes shutting down schools and national Democrats helping to organize the angry mob descending on Madison."

    Bravery isn't the first word that comes to mind when looking at these images of a Japanese log-rolling ceremony. But that is exactly what these young men are apparently proving during the bizarre Ki-otoshi ceremony, where they ride the giant logs as they are yanked down steep hills by ropes. Skidding and bumping over the rough terrain, at times the logs literally drop down the steep inclines

    This editorial page has for years criticized the dishonest budgets coming out of Sacramento. State leaders have been unwilling to do anything about California’s structural budget deficit but make it worse by pushing costly bond projects that add to long-term debt. This reckless practice is reflected in state debt service payments, which have gone up 143 percent the past decade. Treasurer Bill Lockyer and Legislative Analyst Mac Taylor both recently warned the Legislature that this debt binge will soon cause huge headaches in crafting a general fund budget, since debt service costs alone are on track to eat up more...

    A bill so reckless that it has to be rammed through on a partisan vote on Christmas eve. And tidings of comfort and joy from Harry Reid too. The Senate Majority Leader has decided that the last few days before Christmas are the opportune moment for a narrow majority of Democrats to stuff ObamaCare through the Senate to meet an arbitrary White House deadline. Barring some extraordinary reversal, it now seems as if they have the 60 votes they need to jump off this cliff, with one-seventh of the economy in tow. Mr. Obama promised a new era of transparent...

    NEW YORK (AFP) – US President Barack Obama on Monday warned Wall Street it must not return to the "reckless behavior" and "unchecked excess" which he blamed for unleashing the global financial crisis. The president, in a major economic speech at the heart of the mighty US financial system just blocks from the New York Stock Exchange, laid out a wide ranging prescription for rebuilding the US finance system. He said the crisis was a "collective failure" of Washington, Wall Street and across America, vowed to press G20 powers for action on regulatory reform, and cautioned top executives not to...
