Connecticut Man Who Shot Himself Riding A Bike Blamed It On Gangs
A Connecticut man who accidentally shot himself with a gun in his waistband while riding a bicycle initially blamed it on a local gang, the Associated Press reported Friday.
Stratford police charged 22-year-old Wendell Docteur with making a false statement to authorities, including the unlawful discharge of a firearm during the May incident. Docteur posted a $10,000 bail and is due for arraignment on Sept. 5.

Jimmy Carter is still in the White House. Actually, it's a mix between Carter & Tricky Dicky.

What candidate are you two talking about? I read nothing about a candidate and a caption in that article.
But with all your scriptural knowledge, you must remember the one about not judging others lest you be judged.
Why is it my fault there's a liberal herd mentality? If someone says something the herd doesn't like, liberals turn on them and stampede in unison.
You know it's true. Look at the NAACP.

Tell us again about all the freedoms you have lost under Obama.
Freedom to make one's own decision about financing medical care.

A Connecticut man, who accidentally shot himself while riding a bicycle, was arrested this week after lying to police and saying that a “gang” of men wearing black hoodies had attacked him.
The Connecticut Post reported that Stratford police were notified on Thursday that 22-year-old Wendell Docteur was being treated for a gunshot wound to his right leg. Docteur told officers that he was riding his bike “when he was confronted by a half dozen men, dressed all in black with hooded sweatshirts covering their faces,” according to the paper.
Docteur claimed that the gang had robbed him of his money and then yelled,“North End, North End,” as they fled. The North End is a neighborhood in Bridgeport.

You do realize that there are certain federal aspects that deal with spouses. Like taxation, benefits, etc.
Therefore the government has an interest in defining what constitutes a marriage.
Not really.

Just tax everyone as individuals.

Benefits are a private matter.

We've seen this scenario so many times: A president contemplates or initiates military action, and the bystanders on Capitol Hill complain that they're being bypassed.

Ronald Reagan bombed Libya three decades ago without congressional approval, Bill Clinton ignored Congress 14 years ago when he dropped bombs on the Serbs in Kosovo, and Barack Obama did virtually the same thing — bombing Libya again — just two years ago. Now it's rinse-and-repeat with respect to Syria. Congress says it wants to be consulted before the bombs fall, and/or Congress insists that no bombs shall fall without prior congressional authorization (typically, Congress can't quite decide what it wants).

So it goes in this era of the imperial presidency (a term coined by historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr., to describe the Nixon administration). Despite Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, which grants Congress the power to declare war, the modern commander-in-chief basically calls the shots.

And the War Powers Resolution of 1973, which ostensibly reigns in the White House, is actually riddled with loopholes. A president can initiate a military action and wait up to 48 hours before even notifying Congress, and he can send U.S. forces into combat for up to 60 days without congressional authorization or a formal declaration of war. Besides, Congress hasn't formally declared war on anybody since 1941.

LOL, talk about a herd....every post of yours is about black people. Take your circus on the road and go and tell the black people how stupid they are and why the Republican party is their only hope in life. Just do it, and get back to us with the report of your progress. You're not convincing anyone on here, besides your herd.
How do you feel about those three Florida gangstas who got off with a slap on the wrist so that they are free to kill while still juveniles?

Are you in favor of American intervention into Syria? I say, let Assad kill them all, come what may. There are reports that there are 6000 fighters from other countries in Syria. Let the UN evacuate the Christians and innocent families and let them all just keep killing until it's over. Sounds crazy doesn't it? But I don't see what our dropping bombs will do to help anyone. Do you?
How about Obama going to Congress to ask for a declaration of war against Syria, as required by the US Constitution?

It just commands the tactics be executed, and instructs how to execute them.
