BREAKING NEWS - Arizona Rep. Giffords shot in the Head

BREAKING NEWS - Arizona Rep. Giffords shot In the Head
, several wounded

Hey folks,

Normally, I would say Happy Saturday. Well, actually, I would say nothing because I'm usually NOT here. But this is a sad day.

I do not care who you are. I do not care what you believe. NO ONE deserves to be Shot in the Head. This is Breaking News so all the details are still being sorted out. But it appears that Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head today, Saturday, 010811 and an Aide was killed, along with a 9-year-old Girl who died, when a man identified as Jared Laughner, opened fired outside a Grocery Store as the Democratic Lawmaker met with Constituents.

This just in, US Marshal tells AP that a Federal Judge was fatally shot in the attack on Congresswoman. No name of the Judge nor the Aid that was killed as of yet. More to come I'm sure.

You know, try as I may, I can not see why anyone would want to Kill this Woman. She has established herself as one of the most Centrist members of Congress. She is a member of the Blue Dog Coalition and New Democrat Coalition working for Fiscally Conservative, Pro Business Economic Policies. Yeah she was all for Amnesty, AKA Path to Citizenship. But seriously, I do not see any reason why she out to be shot. Why anyone would have a REAL reason to Hate her ways of Policies. She is an Attractive Women who describes herself as follows.
"You know, actually as a former Republican, you know, I consider myself someone who is pretty in the middle, I'm a blue dog Democrat, and one that is interested in making sure that our country maintains our prosperity and frankly, our superiority over other countries and that's where we look at these threat, obviously our defense budget, our level of education," she said in an interview with Fox this week.
She is NOT a member of the LWL {Left Wing Looneys} She is not a Right Wingnut. She is someone who seems to have the ability to think for herself and apply Logic and Reason to situations. Someone who seeks out the Truth of the Matter in dealing with whatever it is she is dealing with at the time.

I'm sure we will have more information on this either Later Today or Tomorrow during the Big Sunday Edition. May the Family of the slain Aide have the Peace and Comfort they need at this time. May the Families of ALL those wounded, including of course Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, have the courage and strength they need in this time. May God be with them all.

As for the Shooter, Jared Laughner, may he get what's due him, and may we find the answer that everyone asks in times like these. Why? I agree with The New Speaker of the House John Boehner
"I am horrified by the senseless attack on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and members of her staff. An attack on one who serves is an attack on all who serve. Acts and threats of violence against public officials have no place in our society. Our prayers are with Congresswoman Giffords, her staff, all who were injured, and their families. This is a sad day for our country."
A sad day indeed. More to come, when updates become available.
