Where do over 2/3rds of these homicides take place? Mostly
Most frequent homocides are within the immediate family and circle of friends.

By far.

Mostly cowards like you who are not man enough to take it around back.

MURPHYS - Calaveras County residents responded with shock and grief Sunday as they learned that a Little League coach, author and former airline pilot had shot his two teenage children to death and then turned the gun on himself at their home in one of the region's most exclusive neighborhoods.

The Calaveras County Sheriff's Office reported Sunday that deputies who arrived at the home on Sandalwood Drive in the Forest Meadows neighborhood of Murphys found Phillip Marshall, 54, dead in a pool of blood inside the front door.

His children, Alex Marshall, 17, and Macaila Marshall, 14, were dead on a couch. All had been shot once in the head with a handgun.

The family dog, also shot to death, was found in a bedroom.

You really don't have any idea how it works, do you el Contrario?:)
Liberals, lie even when they don't have to........

FactCheck.org called out Senator Harry Reid for being doubly wrong in his claim that Congress has already cut $2.6 trillion from projected future deficits by reducing non-defense programs alone.

The site explained that not only did the legislation he referred to applied to both security and non-security spending, but that a considerable part of the deficit reduction came from tax increases and not spending cuts.

The worst part? The senator made the same erroneous statement twice. Reid made the affirmations on ABC's "This Week" on Feb. 3rd, were he also added that further deficit reduction should include more tax increases and cuts in military spending.

The first step in recovery is admitting you have a problem.

I've repeatedly attacked both Bush AND Obama for drone strikes, asshat, so take that argument and shove it where the sun don't shine.

Your side lapped this up when Bush was doing it, but now hate Obama for the same actions. You're utter and complete hypocrites.

It's also funny that someone asking another poster to be "coherent" himself misspells 'tweedle dee and tweedle dum' so badly. Were you raised by wolves?:)

Professor Fartsack, I think asshat is more applicable to you amoral, leftist/communists. Whatever, your asinine, extremely deluded comments will not go unanswered. It is YOU who is the utter and complete hypocrite as bad as anyone on all of topix. Man I'm glad I'm not you and have to live in your nightmare of a brain.
