DOES THIS MATTER SHE IS BLACK AND A BL:ACK PERSON sHOT HER I KNOW POLITICIANS CANT USE THIS FOR THE NEXT DEMOCRAT HILLARY CLINTON BECAUSE THIS IS DAILY AND IT CANT BE PIMPED BY SHARPTON BUT SHE IS IMPORTANT TO ME One week after she celebrated her fourth birthday, little Khalise Weatherspoon had a horrifically traumatic experience. While riding a scooter outside of her grandparents Southside Chicago home, the toddler was hit in the abdomen by a stray bullet, ABC 7 reports.

The bullet exited through her back. Immediately following the shooting, little Khalise was rushed to Chicago’s Holy Cross Hospital, but was later transported to Mt. Sinai Hospital where she was treated for her injury in the trauma unit.

“We just celebrated her fourth birthday this past weekend,” Khalise’s grandfather, Richard Spires, told ABC.“I just don’t get it. We need to stop the violence,” he continued.

The toddler’s aunt, Pamela Williams, said that she’s totally enraged over the senseless crime.

“We’re very angry. It makes no sense to shoot a baby, 4 years old. We’re very angry and hurt,” Pamela said.

According to eyewitnesses, one or two men emerged from an alley next to the home where the child was hit and began shooting.

“[Her mother] came behind me holding her baby in her hands and said,‘Derrick, my baby has been shot.’ I grabbed the baby and I cuffed her. I put her in my car and did what the police would do. I ran every stoplight to get here to save this child,” one witness told reporters.

Family members say that little Khalise is doing better and responding to doctors, but they’re crying out for the violence to end.

“She was just innocent, riding her bicycle. These children should be allowed to go outside and ride their bicycles. I think it’s terrible what’s going on,” friend of the family, Gwendolyn Baxter, told ABC.

JUSTICE FOR THIS AMERICAN BABY little Khalise Weatherspoon OH I FORGOT SOME IN THE COMMUNITY THINK THIS IS OK BECAUSE IT WASNT DONE BY A WHITE PERSON

Wiki - Sheila Jackson Lee: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheila_Jackson_L...
"It was reported that in October 2010 Jackson Lee was “asking the Department of Justice to investigate whether tea party groups are intimidating black and Hispanic voters in her district.” She requested that Attorney General Eric Holder send poll monitors to make sure that a local group wasn't stopping people from voting.
Speaking in July 2010 at the NAACP national convention, Jackson Lee compared the Tea Party to the KKK.
Jackson Lee said in January 2011 that repealing the health care law would be in violation of the Constitution. She argued that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is constitutional under the Commerce Clause, and that repealing it would violate both the Fifth and the Fourteenth Amendments.
At a Homeland Security Committee hearing on radical Muslims in the US, held in March 2011, Jackson Lee said that Peter King's hearings were helping al-Qaeda and “going the same route as Arizona.” She complained that the hearings were scaring Muslim Americans and called them “an outrage.”
Jackson Lee has urged better relations between the U.S. and Venezuela, which she describes as a friendly nation. She said the U.S. should reconsider its ban on selling F-16 fighter jets and spare parts to that country. The U.S. State Department bans such sales due to "lack of support" for counter-terrorist operations and Venezuela's relations with Iran and Cuba"
Ronald Reagan even refused to meet with the Black Caucus in the White House, but we still tolerated that racist President in the city of Washington D. C.

People liked her more than they did McCain. Game Change made them both look bad.
I know it's just a movie, but it brings her character to life. Then again, she could have been suffering from postpartum depression after having a baby at 44 or over 40 at any rate. I've heard so many different things about the Palin family. Not sure what is true or not true.

Seems to me a "progressive" explanation you reference, kind of like them rewriting history as they are inclined to do.

And, now, the Ben Bernanke question. Why did questioning of him immediately cease after he uttered the words "Special Purpose Vehicle" to Barney Frank's committee?

"Well-heeled executives and their families increasingly are paying tens of thousands of dollars a year for high-end medical services that aren’t covered by insurance.

“Wealthy people want to have a little exclusivity and want better service than they can get at their normal health-care facility, and they’re willing to pay for it,” said Rick Flynn, principal and head of the Family Office Group with Rothstein Kass, a Roseland, New Jersey-based accounting and consulting firm.

Such white-glove attention, known as concierge care, doesn’t come cheap. It may cost as much as $30,000 a year out-of-pocket for unfettered access to physicians who limit the number of patients they take on. An emergency room in one’s home designed to handle a family’s ailments can cost as much as $1 million.

About 55 percent of single-family offices, which generally manage the finances of one wealthy family, used a concierge health-care provider in 2011, compared with about 36 percent in 2009, according to a study released in December by Rothstein Kass. The top reasons were managing severe medical conditions and gaining access to quality physicians and medical institutions, the study found."

"PinnacleCare Private Health Advisory organizes medical records, has emergency physicians available around-the-clock and connects patients to a network of top doctors throughout the world, for fees ranging from $2,500 to $30,000 a year, said Miles Varn, an emergency physician and chief medical officer for the Baltimore-based firm."

The unions are the dumbest of the bunch. They were useful idiots spending millions of dollars to get O'bamacare passed--and yet they will be the first to hit the unemployment line--couldn't happen to a better bunch. They should be proud of their accomplishments...going along with the liberals just for the hell of it, not knowing a damn thing. ROTFLMAO.

And then support illegal immigration--another boom for the Unions. Can't get much dumber...and yet they want to bitch about Palin! She told us exactly what was going to happen.

The difference is that the 'unions' don't want to repeal Obamacare, but make it better . Republicans haven't even made the attempt to improve Obamacare or even bothered to read and understand it. That's irresponsible and unacceptable behavior of our elected officials for many American voters switching to the Democratic Party in 2014 and beyond.

I don't know , but there are a lot of rednecks for President Obama lovers who love the President because of his self-effacing humor, love of beer, sports, tobacco, respect for the troops,thinks America is better off minding their own business at home, wary of chasing boogie men overseas, and playing with his kids in his own back yard.(Just like them!)

The voters with brains will remember Oblama has failed on everything except making race relations worse, over a 30% drop among blacks and whites. That's Oblama's legacy.

My post is accurate___the lying piece of chit formerly known as Carol was telling tall tales per usual.
My son was delivered c-section in 1973, BlueCrossBlueShield paid most of the bill which was $1816. I paid for the upgrade to a private room which was just $150 ($50 per day).
Over 40% of all personal bankruptcies are due to medical bills such as childbirth.
Will O'bama care end medical bankruptcies?
NO! in fact they will be worse. Most people are barely going to be able to afford coverage, leaving no extra money, and on top of that they will be under-insured. It should create more bankruptcies because these people think they are entitled to being sick and will see a doctor because they 'think' they have coverage. Wait and see the mess when they get a bill for over 50% of the cost of the visit. It was supposed to 15 million who needed insurance, that is just the illegals that the democrats want to come to the country--what about the millions that have lost their jobs since the democrats passed the 'not about health, not about care' bill in the middle of the night?
