City Marshal Brian Pope has confirmed for The Daily Advertiser that six people were injured in a shooting Thursday night at the Grand Theatre.
The shooter then turned the gun on himself, Pope said, and is dead.
Katie Domingue of Carencro was at the 7 p.m. showing of “Train Wreck” with her fiance’, Joshua Doggett. About 20 minutes into the movie, Domingue said, she heard a loud noise.

“We heard a loud pop we thought was a firecracker,” she said.She saw “an older white man” standing up and shooting down, not in her direction.

Enjoy your drive to Dallas,  DesertRhino. I’ll have a notary standing by. Just park it in front.

Hey – waitaminnit – what’s a fucking RINO doing on Free Republic?

“He wasn’t saying anything. I didn’t hear anybody screaming either,” Domingue said.

She heard about six shots, then she and Doggett ran to the nearest exit, leaving behind her shoes and purse.

What is going on here?

Simple. Rampant liberalism is the cause.

Of course it is.  Liberals are famous for shooting up movie theaters. We live for that shit.

There are FAR too many of these happening and FAR too often. Just a few years ago this was almost unheard of.

The axis of evil in the White Mosque has set up an environment for leftists to engage in these killing sprees. Aside from the shooter, hussein, holder and jarrett are equally guilty. As long as the regime remains in place, it’s vital for Patriots to be well armed.

So – to recap:

It’s not you, (or the mouth breathers like you who populate Free Republic) who are to blame for stirring up the crazies by screaming “Treason”, Big Goverment”, and “Tree Of Liberty” , but Hussein, Holder, and Jarett (kinda sounds like a law firm, doesn’t it?).

Makes perfect sense.

You DO know that projection is one of the hallmarks of sociopathy do you not?

More, including armed patriots guarding our military recruitment centers and after the media jump.

Anyway – back to the “Liberals are to blame for old white guys shooting up places” thread:

As far as muzzies go, ULL has a pretty highly regarded petroleum engineering program, and I’ve met a handful of middle easterners (Saudies and Kuwaitis) over here for their degree. Even allowing for taqiyya, they seemed pretty westernized, and I got the impression that the two who hung out and studied at the coffee house I used to go to regularly were not raised in very devout Islamic households.Back in my drinking days, one of my drinking pals was an Egyptian, also in the oil industry, working for Schlumberger, who was very westernized. He had been a lieutenant in the Egyptian Army, and had no love for radical islamists.

If – say TWO people in the audience had started firing into the dark at silhouettes of people jumping to their feet, it would have taken the state’s entire forensics team a month to finish drawing red lines and figuring who shot who, and in what order.

Of course, as more and more info  about the murderer – Mr. “I Hate Liberals” – turns up on the thread, do the Freeperati at last – at long last – have even a modicum of shame?

Army Says Armed Citizens Are “Security Threat” At Recruiting Stations Gateway Pundit ^ | 07/22/15 | Michael Strickland Posted on ‎7‎/‎23‎/‎2015‎ ‎8‎:‎15‎:‎16‎ ‎AM by Enlightened1

As private citizens stand guard at military recruiting centers across the nation, the Army has released a warning to its personnel and recruits, stating that armed citizens should be treated as a “security threat”.

Travis Tritten of Stars & Stripes reports:

The Army has warned its recruiters to treat the gun-toting civilians gathering at centers across the country in the wake of the Chattanooga, Tenn., shooting as a security threat.

Soldiers should avoid anyone standing outside the recruiting centers attempting to offer protection and report them to local law enforcement and the command if they feel threatened, according to a U.S. Army Recruiting Command policy letter issued Monday.

“I’m sure the citizens mean well, but we cannot assume this in every case and we do not want to advocate this behavior,” according to the Army Command Operations Center-Security Division letter, which was authenticated by the service.

Recruiters were ordered not to interact or acknowledge the armed civilians, who have been greeted by a mix of concern, indifference and gratitude by the public.

“If questioned by these alleged concerned citizens, be polite, professional and terminate the conversation immediately and report the incident to local law enforcement …,” the command advised.

As the incidents crop up around the country, police could be asked to confront the civilians with guns on the Army’s behalf.

“Ensure your recruiters clearly articulate to local police the civilian may be armed and in possession of a conceal/carry permit,” it told the centers.

The command said recruiters should also immediately fill out an Army security report.

Civilian guards ordered to leave [recruiting station] after one accidentally fires rifle
Stars and Stripes ^ | 7/25/15 | Lane

Posted on ‎7‎/‎25‎/‎2015‎ ‎8‎:‎44‎:‎42‎ ‎AM by pabianice

LANCASTER, Ohio (Tribune News Service) — The armed civilians who have been guarding a military recruitment center here are gone, ordered off the property after one of them accidentally discharged his rifle on Thursday.

No one was injured.

U.S. Properties Group Portfolio Four LLC, the owner of the shopping center near the River Valley Mall that includes the multi-branch military recruitment center, ordered the armed volunteers to leave just hours after the shot was fired.


The armed civilians have been guarding the center since Monday.

One of them has been charged with a misdemeanor after he accidentally fired his AR-15 rifle. Someone from the recruiting center at 1530 River Valley Blvd. flagged down an officer at 12:01 p.m. to report the incident, Lt. Shane Wilson said.

I thought it was an order from Bush Obummer to strip our military of its right to  accidentally shoot each other / escalate fights and confrontations  protect Amurica?

The military spends a pitiful little amount of time at the range or on gun handling. For most soldiers, basic training is about it. And they spend very little range time there. That’s the sad truth.

Even when I was armed stateside (standing watch on my submarine), we never chambered a round unless a threat was visible. I keep seeing videos of these “guards” and in every one, they keep fingering the fire selector and I kept thinking, “these guys probably have a round chambered and there is going to be an accident”.

ROFLMAO. The pistol was in a holster with a flap. It only takes a second to chamber a round and that can be done on the draw. If you don’t have a second to chamber a round, then you obviously weren’t paying attention to your post. I’m sorry that your training was so poor that you can’t understand the full requirements of watchstanding. There’s a lot more to it than holding and stroking a gun.

What Your Boss Really Means By “No One Is Getting A Raise.”
Forbes ^ | 07/07/2015 | Simon Constable

Posted on ‎7‎/‎7‎/‎2015‎ ‎7‎:‎08‎:‎35‎ ‎AM by SeekAndFind

We are now half way through the calendar year, and for many that means mid-year performance reviews. Or even worse, for some with odd fiscal years, it can be time for talks about money.

Both inside and outside of those meetings what you have been told can be confusing. You need to understand what your boss really means, not just what is said. Believe me, I’ve spent enough time in corporate America, and enough time in human resource jobs, to know the difference. This stuff applies whether you work for a massive multinational like Google , or General Motors GM -1.75% or a small reseller of Apple gadgets.

Let me take you through some of the more common half-truths, what they really mean, what it says about your boss, and what to do.


Boss: No one is getting a raise/bonus

For example: “Sorry we can’t reward your hard work this year, but no one is getting a raise.”

What it means: You are not getting a raise.

What is says about your boss. Here are some likely possibilities (explanations where necessary in parentheses):

a) Your boss is too stupid to know what’s really going on elsewhere in the company. (There are always exceptions to salary freezes and your boss should know that.)

b) Your boss is lying to your face.

c) Your boss doesn’t have enough influence to get you a raise.

d) Your boss can’t be bothered to get you a raise.

What to do: Act like you are working hard but really spend your time getting a new job.

  1. The military spends a pitiful little amount of time at the range or on gun handling

    You know what else they spend a pitiful amount of time on? JOUSTING.

    Really! It’s just terrible how much time the spend on stuff like “artillery”, “tanks”, “aerial bombardment”, and “shooting nuclear-armed missiles”, while neglecting the basics of pea-shooters, slingshots, and bb-guns. SHEESH!

  2. Bloody poacher. I may have to borrow PBJ’s bigass belt buckle to teach you a lesson. NOT. 😉 Nice piece.

  3. They can’t say, “Nice shootin’, Tex,” because that puts the holy word “shoot” in a sentence which is not 100% congratulatory. Heresy.

  4. “Damnit – I know this post is already a long one”.

    No. Your other posts are too short. That is all.

    As always, thanks for a hilarious (if slightly depressing re: state of humanity) kick-off to Mondays.

  5. Classic line…”you must not live in louisana”, I needed a good laugh. Thank you mr Tom, I couldn’t bear reading all the comments these fucksticks write without your moderating and insights, you sir are no fuckstick

    1. People ask me “how can you stand it?” a lot. I guess I’m just numb to the stupidity by now.
      The hardest thing about putting an “Obsession” post together is the fact that they repeat themselves. A LOT.
      So, the tough part is finding stuff that is different from the eleventy-million previous times they expressed the same idiocy.
