How Many Have to Die???How many people have to die for our right to bear arms????
I open my computer this morning and see yet another story about someone opening fire on innocent people. How many of these incidents do we have to have before someone cries 'ENOUGH?"
The gun folks adamantly insist it's the people that are the problem not the guns. Well, that's certainly true and I won't argue the fact, however, with the current atmosphere of depression due to the sinking economy, the presidential race, foreclosures, and no jobs, we are presented with too many people who have snapped. These people reach for a gun to try and end their pain rather than pick up a phone and call for help.
Because guns are so glamorized on TV and in stories, the deranged seem to fixate on this as the great problem solver. Even children have gotten into the habit of thinking this is the way to handle their grievances.
Guns have proliferated to the degree that there is at le
OLD MAGIC, CH 23Chapter 23: History Lessons
Sunlight poured through the large windows, the view a spectacular wintry scene of the lake and forest but it was ignored by the pair hunched over a laptop. They sat at a beautifully carved oak table that took up residence against one wall of the large library.
A rock fireplace on the opposite wall had been laid with applewood and pine and was burning brightly providing warmth and sweet smells to the well appointed space. The rest of the walls held built-in shelves that were filled with books, maps, magazines and all types of interesting artifacts collected from around the world. A thick blue Persian carpet covered the polished wood floor while comfortable sofa chairs had been placed about coaxing one to enter and stay awhile.
When Severus and Draco entered it that first day after they'd arrived, escorted by Agatha, they'd stared in appreciation of the beauty and ambiance of the space.
"What a wonderful library," Snape said, honestly, look
Political RantWith the presidential election coming up, I am sick to death of all the mud slinging from the two candidates. I'm so disgusted, I don't even want to vote at all.
So what I want to know is why should we vote when the electoral college is the only ones allowed to make the final decision on who will be our new president, ignoring the people's choice?
"We the People" have lost our voice! We no longer choose our presidents and have no real say in how our government will be run. That has been given to those with money and means.... in other words....with the political clout to be heard.
We allow these people to pour money into campaign coffers so only their choice will be the one we have to vote for. This was not how things were supposed to be when our democracy was set up all those years ago!
We shouldn't allow this to go on. "We the people" aren't being given fair representation in our elections, when only the ones
CASE OF THE WEREWOLF KILLER, CH 10Chapter 10: Tracking a Killer
They decided to use Grissom's hummer. After retrieving a hand held radio, bottles of water, and some sandwiches, the three piled into the vehicle with Gideon taking the back seat allowing Barrett to sit shotgun.
"So how long does it take to get to this guy's last known location?" Barrett asked, drinking some water to hydrate before their run.
"About an hour and a half. Open me one of those would you?" Grissom answered, reaching for a bottle which Gideon opened then handed over.
"I hope we find the trail quickly. I don't want to be combing these hills every night in hopes of spotting this thing," Barrett commented, staring at the passing scenery which contained the most garishly decorated buildings he'd ever seen.
Some were incredible feats of architectural design while others looked liked theme parks with waterfalls, amusement rides, a replica of the Sphinx no less, and many other amazing looking venues and hotels. The lights painted the night sky with gar
