A 4-year old boy shot and killed the wife of a Tennessee sheriff's deputy over the weekend, police say.

On April 6, Wilson County Deputy Daniel Fanning was inside his home showing his weapons collection to a relative when the officer's wife and young nephew entered the room. The child grabbed one of Fanning's loaded guns off the bed and fired a single shot.

The bullet struck Josephine Fanning, the deputy's 48-year-old wife. Despite efforts to revive her, Josephine was pronounced dead at the scene.

Another one!

Toms River, New Jersey Boy, 4, Accidentally Shot 6-Year-Old Neighbor In Head: Police

TOMS RIVER, N.J.— Authorities are deciding whether to charge anyone after police say a 6-year-old was shot in the head by a 4-year-old in New Jersey.

The older boy is in serious condition.

Authorities are still investigating how the younger child obtained the .22-caliber rifle from his family's Toms River home Monday night.

Police Chief Michael Mastronardy says the children were outside the 4-year-old's home when the boy went inside, got the rifle and shot the 6-year-old about 15 yards away. It's not clear if the 4-year-old pulled the trigger or if the rifle accidentally discharged.

The parents of the 4-year-old were home at the time.

Margaret Thatcher revived the British economy and the spirit of the British people in the 11 years of her premiership. By 1990, when she was forced out of office, she had made Britain the fourth-largest economy in the world. She pioneered a worldwide revolution of privatization and free market that have lifted literally billions of people out of Third World poverty.
These achievements were not without cost — especially in domestic politics. In order to defeat inflation and bring labor unions under the law, Thatcher had to overcome strong opposition from vested interests and a series of strikes by unions resisting reform. As a result, she is still hated by sections of the British Left — whom she defeated not only on policies but also on their treasured grounds of theory and philosophy.
Thatcher’s 3 election victories entrenched that philosophy and her economic and labor reforms as the new consensus of British politics. The economy was characterized by change, profitability, growth, the better allocation of resources (including labor) and the emergence of a new industries — indeed of an entirely new economy, based on the information revolution.
Y
et the revolution of Thatcherism was also a moral revolution with such qualities as SELF-RELIANCE, DILIGENCE, THRIFT, TRUSTWORTHINESS AND INITIATIVE THAT ENABLE SOMEONE WHO EXHIBITS THEM TO LIVE AND WORK INDEPENDENTLY IN SOCIETY.
Though they are not the only virtues — compassion might be called one of the “softer virtues”— they are essential to the success of a free economy and a civil society, both of which rely on dispersed initiative and self-reliant citizens.
And as Mrs. Thatcher used to point out, the softer virtues such as compassion cannot be exerted by people who lack the vigorous virtues of self-reliance and thrift. Her favorite saying from John Wesley was,“Earn all you can; save all you can; give all you can.”
The reliance of charity upon the vigorous virtues may not be a theological novelty, but it is an important social insight. This moral victory over the left’s collectivism was one of the things that caused her to be most hated — but not the last thing.
Perhaps her most surprising achievement was to be a visionary, since Mrs. Thatcher always seemed a very practical person. Yet she was a visionary precisely because she was practical — and she showed it most clearly in a matter where most statesmen disagreed with her.
She fell from power, partly because she opposed the Euro and its earlier form, the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, or ERM, and the idea of federal European government in general. Her opposition was rooted in highly practical economics: She said that a one-size-fits-all European currency would never suit the 27 nations of the European Union.
She proved to be correct almost immediately. Only 2 years after her warnings, Britain was forced out of the ERM after suffering two years of needless recession. At once the UK economy began to recover and, indeed, to flourish for another decade outside the Euro.
Today, when Europe is riven by a long-running crisis over the single currency, with unemployment levels running at 25% and more in southern Europe, she looks even more prescient. If Britain and Europe had followed her advice in 1990 and later, they would all be more prosperous and friendly today.
Mrs. Thatcher was a great statesman. What future generations may appreciate more, however, was that she was a visionary social and geopolitical thinker, too.
But as long as it's the Democrat Party who has absolute control and it's a Liberal Leader who is always right, liberals are quite happy to be the obedient followers. They prove how easy it is for a tyrant to rise to power.

Socialist, Marxist, Communist societies are less charitable to the poor and the state is not as "giving" as they pretend to be in winning over the faithful followers.

We need more Margaret Thatchers.

So a government takeover is OK if it is taking over areas historically controlled by Democrats?
It's pointless arguing with fools. One has to assume a certain degree of familiarity when discussing opinions, otherwise, it's a never ending process of educating, with no time spent 'exchanging'. Like playing ping pong with a paraplegic.

Like I said, you're a consistent, dumb little piggy. Rand was an insane, greedy monster who couldn't think or write herself out of your colostomy bag. Of course you'd be the first to pay homage to a third-rate intellect, and first-rate hypocrite:
Rand's fiction was poorly received by many literary critics, and academia generally ignored or rejected her philosophy. The Objectivist movement attempts to spread her ideas, both to the public and in academic settings. She has been a significant influence among libertarians and American conservatives.
Author Flannery O'Connor wrote in a letter to a friend that "The fiction of Ayn Rand is as low as you can get re fiction. I hope you picked it up off the floor of the subway and threw it in the nearest garbage pail."
On the 100th anniversary of Rand's birth in 2005, Edward Rothstein, writing for The New York Times, referred to her fictional writing as quaint utopian "retro fantasy" and programmatic neo-Romanticism of the misunderstood artist, while criticizing her characters' "isolated rejection of democratic society". In 2007, book critic Leslie Clark described her fiction as "romance novels with a patina of pseudo-philosophy". In 2009, GQ's critic columnist Tom Carson described her books as "capitalism's version of middlebrow religious novels" such as Ben-Hur and the Left Behind series.
So, of course, you'd adore her, you filthy, wallowing, dumb pack animal.
"Throughout history, no tyrant ever rose to power except on the claim of representing the common good."

You would make a good little North Korean soldier.

<quoted text>I find it amusing that you are threatened.
The Olmec were the first major civilization in Mexico. They lived in the tropical lowlands of south-central Mexico, in the modern-day states of Veracruz and Tabasco.
The Olmec flourished during Mesoamerica's Formative period, dating roughly from as early as 1500 BCE to about 400 BCE. Pre-Olmec cultures had flourished in the area since about 2500 BCE, but by 1600–1500 BCE Early Olmec culture had emerged centered around the San Lorenzo Tenochtitlán site near the coast in southeast Veracruz.[1] They were the first Mesoamerican civilization and laid many of the foundations for the civilizations that followed.
The belief that the African-Olmecs were a Pan-Nubian/West African Sahara civilization is believed by many in Africa and elsewhere. Olmec Helmets are very similar to those worn by the Nubians and West Africans of ancient times. Both are made of a combination of Leather and metal.
MR., IF YOUR HISTORY IS SO RICH, THEN WHY WOULD YOU DENY THAT OF OTHERS. ARE YOU INSECURE?
By the way, I have to go, I could only bring up history as far back as 2500 BC.
Look, honky, you seem to be a history book of one, no one has heard of the Olmec and the idea Africans rowed across the Atlantic to South America and then vanished is laughable. The general consensus, true or not, is that natives Americans came from Asia, not Africa.

Native American histories are lucky to go back 1000 years, your mentioning BC is laughable as well.

Isn't my history your history? Or are you a Martian or something?

One thing is for sure, you leftist fools will continue to blame the "sequestration" and the GOP.
