NJ police: Dad called, worried about LAX suspect
Associated Press
By MICHAEL RUBINKAM and KATHY MATHESON 5 hours ago

PENNSVILLE, N.J.(AP)— The young man suspected of carrying out a shooting at Los Angeles International Airport had sent a sibling a text message mentioning suicide, leading their father to seek authorities' help in finding him, a New Jersey police chief said Friday.

Paul Ciancia's father called Pennsville Police Chief Allen Cummings early Friday afternoon, saying another of his children had received a text message from the 23-year-old "in reference to him taking his own life," the chief told The Associated Press.

The elder Ciancia, the owner of an auto-body shop in southern New Jersey, asked for help in locating Paul, Cummings said. The chief called Los Angeles police, which sent a patrol car to Ciancia's apartment. It wasn't clear whether the police visited before or after the airport shooting.

"Basically, there were two roommates there," Cummings said. "They said,'We saw him yesterday and he was fine.'"

Next, the "Mass plan" has been amended at least twice with a third amendment effort cancelled because the "Mass plan" will be null and voided by PelosiCare.
By the way, how many pages were in the "Mass plan" and how many in PelosiCare? If you don't like the "Mass plan" you can move to another state but if you don't like PelosiCare you have to leave the U.S.!

Not sure he lost, but as I just wrote, everyone that speculates as to who won or lost are wrong AND right. I disagree with the Clinton factor. Had Clinton been allowed to run for a 3rd term, he would've won hands down against any contender. Gore was afraid, of the Lewinski affair, as I just wrote to LTR, but I reckon he misjudged a democratic electorate and some conservatives that had forgiven his stupid indiscretions. Had he solicited Clinton more, he probably would've won without a recount.
There are no "do-overs." The fact is that the RESPONSIBILITY for running the election campaign of 2000 fell on Gore's shoulders and he lost. He lost his own state, Tennessee, and he lost New Hampshire. And, you can check this out, even with losing Tennessee AND Florida, he would have won if he had simply won New Hampshire and he didn't, and New Hampshire is a swing state---so why didn't he win in Tennessee and New Hampshire?

Largely because of the Clinton-Lewinsky mess of course.

So who was responsible for Gore losing in 2000? Clinton. Could Ralph Nader have helped Gore by not running? Sure, but the fact is that Nader had his own political agenda and wanted to make his point---and that was baked into the cake.

A lesson of this MESS is that we have to think of a 50-50 election in somewhat broader terms. There actually have been state elections in which the two candidates received EXACTLY the same number of votes after a recount, and so what do they do? They flip a coin and the winner wins the election.

My suggestion is that in the future when a state's vote is within,say, one one hundredth of a percent of 50-50, it be assumed that it was tied, and the two candidates must flip a coin to determine who won. The reason of course is that re-counting and re-counting changes the actual vote. The vote is NOT determined by the ballots but by the biases (everybody has them even the people who try hard to be fair) of the people who are recounting the ballots. So, it is pretty easy to determine what the meaning of a "hanging chad" is, but it is very hard, a matter in which biases play a role, to determine what the meaning of a "dimpled chad" would be.

Situations like this are likely to occur in any elections that are within a tiny percentage of 50-50.

As for the illegal actions that kept people from voting in Florida. They were illegal, and the people involved should have been punished (they weren't), but our system does not allow votes to be given for the people who were prevented from voting. All that we can do is to try to prevent such things from happening again, and it seems to me, that there are states that are trying to make it happen again right now--purging their ballot roles and trying to make it hard for people to vote with voter-ID laws (and you notice that those laws never contain any provisions for getting poor people to the places where they can get the voter IDs---I wonder why not?).

Let's not leave out the American Industrialist like Henry Ford and our manufacturing might. Without the Willow Run plant churning out a bomber a day that ultimately pummeled Germany into submission, that victory in Europe may not have been possible in the time it took us to tip the scales. American CAPITALISM, and the wealth created by it, not socialism and government deciding who and what would succeed was extremely influential.

Still want to bomb those 60,000 student and faculty traitors at Harvard and Yale? All of them traitors and non respecters of the constitution, right? Much like Sodom and Gomorrah, correct? Not one innocent soul in there. Very civil, that.
I believe they refer to that as collateral damage Jacque. Even the fight to preserve liberty will have some of that. I must be bi-polar, because that was the uncivil side of me prodding you liberals. Our country is a fiscal and social mess currently, and Harvard and Yale has funneled us our current crop of "leaders" for some time now. If results are any indicator of their contribution, my assessment is that they have failed the people, because the people have been screwed by both parties, as we witness the democrats making the rich richer and the poor more desperate then in decades.

No, air superiority has never won a war on it's own. But the nation that has it hasn't properly lost either. Vietnam doesn't play... air superiority was a political map. Not a true use of air power.
It is my understanding that al Qaeda like Cosa Nostra do not use any electronic communications.

Word of mouth is used therefore nullifying NSA spying.

We had air superiority in Vietnam and lost, same with Korea lost, same with Iraq lost, and same with Afghanistan lost.

I do agree we are second to none in Air Power which creates an enormous advantage.

I have a hard time with Penn and Teller. They are gross and boorish. And I don't see the point in stuff like "Fuck**G Mother Teresa" and "Fuck**g Ghandi" and "fuck**g Dalai Lama" , etc. I also hear a lot of rumours coming out of their foul mouths, rumours that, like Rogue, they do not substantiate, though yes, some of them must be true if one throws enough of them around. What's more, it seems that Terasa and Ghandi, to name just two, have not done a single positive thing in their lives, not unlike the Dalai Lama whom even I was never that impressed with, but there is a limit to lambasting people.
Christopher Hitchens video I have not seen yet, as the first one was after all 30 minutes long.
These people, unlike Teller and Penn, are not perfect, nor
did they ever claim to be. But then, who is?
I agree with you.

The most important thing to remember is that Saints are Sinners.

Nobody is perfect with the exception of JESUS who was human and divine.

I fell asleep watching the Hitchens clip but I will listen to it again.

Stuart Butler was paid to come up with the "Heritage Plan". The notion that butler was a rogue element within Heritage is pure BS. Republicans introduced the Health Equity and Access Reform Today Act in 1993, incorporating the heritage Plan's individual mandate. Later the Massachusetts plan based on Heritage's plan was lauded by the Foundation. Again, the notion that the so-called "Heritage Plan" was one man's opinion is pure bunk. The Health Access Reform Today Act was "sponsored by John Chafee, of Rhode Island, and co-sponsored by eighteen Republicans, including Bob Dole, who was then the Senate Minority Leader." Republicans obviously were not screaming that it was unconstitutional socialism. Concerning the individual mandate at the NATIONAL level, Mitt Romney said on Meet The Press,“a number of Republicans think is a very good health-care plan—one that we support.” But today it is anathema among Republicans. That is because it has Barack Obama's name on it.
